  • Trivia

    • The waiter pours Sazanami his milk like pouring a keg of beer, leading some to believe the milk in the dub was originally beer but was painted over. It is milk in the original version too. This assumption may relate to infamous dubbing in which beer and alcohol is replaced with milk or water.

  • Quotes

    • Kiba: So there's a bounty on the bounty hunter?
      Naruto: Man, could this mission get any weirder?! What's going on?

    • Sazanami: (Rounds corner and runs into Gosunkugi's bodyguards) I'm hunting bigger game, but I don't see him.
      Gosunkugi: Quiet, you opportunistic hyena. (Jumps down from his hiding place)
      Sazanami: I've waited a long time for you to make your move.

    • Naruto: For an old guy, he kicked our butts.

    • Sazanami: Forgive me, kid, I did what I had to do. I'll defeat him no matter the cost.

    • Sazanami: Gosunkugi is my prey and mine alone. I'm not handing him over to you or anyone else.
      Kiba: Well, good for you. So why don't you go catch him already and leave us alone?
      Sazanami: Sorry, wet behind the ears you may still be, it doesn't change the fact any that you're Leaf Ninja. It's better to have fewer competitors, best to have none whatsoever.

    • Naruto: (Eats a meal prepared by Hinata) Seriously, Hinata, you're gonna make a heck of a wife for someone.
      Hinata: What? (Thinking and turning red) One heck of a wife?

    • Hinata: I'm sorry, Naruto, forgive me. I'm just... Well I... Just so happy to be sent out on something with you...
      Naruto: Eh? What are you mumbling about, Hinata? Can't hear ya. And how come your cheeks are so red? You're a weird one.

    • Kiba: This mission is kind of a snooze, ya know.
      (Akamaru barks in agreement)

    • Naruto: Why are you guys acting all goofy out here? This isn't a picnic you know.
      Hinata: You're right, sorry.
      Kiba: Oh, come on, lighten up will ya. This mission's gonna be a cinch, even if it's only three of us.

    • Sazanami: Glass of milk, if you please.
      Thug: Who the heck is this guy?
      Bartender: Yeah, right! Coming up. Enjoy.
      Sazanami: Much obliged. Now, now, no need to be shy. (Pours milk for Akamaru) Drink up. Courtesy of that gentleman over there, ol' Mr. Cueball.
      Thug: So I'm ol' Mr. Cueball, huh? So why would I buy milk for some random mutt? You got a death wish or somethin'?

    • Gosunkugi: Time is money, so let's kill you as cheaply as possible.

    • Sazanami: Ha, ha, ha, ha... Well I'll be! Can't say I ever met a ninja that wasn't old enough to shave before.

    • Kiba: When someone says: "In a blink of an eye," I betcha that's the kind of thing you're talking about.

    • Naruto: I sure didn't expect to be eating my own face when I woke up this morning.

    • Naruto: What'd you say, grandma? I am so way better that nothing!

    • Hinata: I'm sorry, Naruto-kun. I... That is... um... A mission with you... Well...I...
      Naruto: What was that, Hinata? I can't hear you. (Hinata looks away) Why are you blushing? You're weird.
      Kiba: Don't be so hasty. Look over there. Once we cross that ridge, we'll be in Stone Country. So eat up until we get there.
      Naruto: It's kinda hard to eat myself. Oh, it's yummy! Hinata you'll definitely be a good wife someday!
      Hinata: (Thinking) A wife...
