Naruto: This stinks. We don't get any bonus now because of Mousou. The person who signs the paychecks was the bad guy.
Neji: It's not that bad.
Naruto: Yeah, it is.
Naruto: You're not going to believe this, but I think I just met your brother in a dream.
Toki: You saw Sagi?
Naruto: And he told me something, he doesn't want you to avenge his and your father's deaths. He said you should move on and take care of this land instead.
Naruto: Not just for Sagi, but for Shishima too. You gotta make the Land of Birds great again. You see... Your life, it matters.
Ooki: That fool was just another convenient pawn, certainly nothing to get so upset about.
Naruto: Shut up! He wasn't a pawn. This man loved the Land of Birds with all his heart! He gave his life trying to protect it from evil like you! I'm finished listening to you. You've said enough, now you'll pay!
Shishima: Naruto, please, I beg this of you! Help Lady Toki! Will you help my friend?
Naruto: Yes. And if a Leaf Village ninja promises something, it means he'll never rest 'till it's done.
Shishima: Then promise me, protect her. Lady Toki means everything to me.
Naruto: Hold on a second... Then you have feelings for her?
Shishima: Lady Toki, I remember. There were many wonderful days spent together at this lake playing here with you and with Lord Sagi. In those days the Land of Birds was so tranquil, so gentle and warm. With all your resolve you can again restore the Land of Birds to the way it once was.
(After Shishima takes 2 shuriken in his back meant for Naruto)
Naruto: Ya gotta hang in there!
Shishima: So was I fast enough then? You're okay? Thank goodness.
Naruto: No way... A person who has an impure heart, a heart that's bent on revenge, can never hope to govern.
Mousou: You people know too many of this land's dark secrets, but you'll be taking those secrets to the grave when I send you all to your doom!
Naruto: (Speaking about what Sagi's ghost had told him to Toki) He said that if you forgot about revenge, time would start moving forward.
Toki: (Looks at Sagi's watch and it is moving foward again) Thank you, Sagi.
Ghost of Sagi: Naruto, wake up. Save Toki. Wake up and save my little sister. I entrusted her with the future of the Land of Birds. I left her my watch, but Toki became obsessed with her intense desire for revenge. For her heart, it's like time has stuck, and as a mere soul, I cannot change it. Please change it for me! Push her heart out of the past and into the future! (Sagi's ghost fades away)
Naruto: Finally showed us your real face, huh.
Ooki: I am called Ooki, a wandering ninja. No matter how you may try to stop me, I will take over this once peaceful land for myself.
Toki: Shishima, please forgive me for deceiving you for such a long time!
Shishima: No. Don't worry about that. I've had my suspicions for quite a while now.
Shima: Are you injured?
Naruto: No, rather, you shouldn't be moving about with those injuries.
Shima: I'm fine.
Tenten: By the way, Naruto, did you really meet Sagi-sama's ghost?
Naruto: Don't even joke! There's no way ghosts exist in this world! That was a dream.
Neji: No. You can't say all of it was a dream.
Naruto: What are you talking about?!
Neji: Do you remember that first Noroimusha that we were chasing?
Tenten: The inside was empty.
Naruto: Surely there was some trick to it, like some string or wire...
Neji: No. I saw it with Byakugan at that time.
Tenten: (To Naruto) Neji said it didn't have the aura of the living.
Neji: Right. I couldn't feel any aura coming from that Noroimusha. In other words, there was a ghost.
Naruto: So that was a real ghost after all?!
Neji: Calm down, Naruto.
Naruto: It's a lie. A lie! Please say that it's a lie!
