The song that is played when Rock Lee and Tenten are under the barrel, "Fooling Mode", was only played in Konoha until this episode.
Lee: I've never been one for skulking around in the shadows.
Tenten: Will you shut your trap? You're going to blow our cover.
Tenten: Same as ever, huh?
Lee: Patience has never been his strong suit, no question.
Naruto: Hey, are those friends of yours who got knocked out going to be alright?
Sumaru: Don't worry about it, okay.
Sumaru: You're outsiders, it's none of your concern. Now quit acting like we're friends.
Naruto: That guy's a real piece of work.
Akahoshi: What? Someone made off with the star?
Sumaru: Yes. There were people training there when it happened, but the enemy knocked them out with some sort of jutsu.
Akahoshi: That's pathetic!
Naruto: You wouldn't say that if you'd seen the chakra this guy was throwin' around!
Lee: Was he truly that impressive a foe then?
Naruto: Yeah, he was forming wings and beasts out of chakra. I've never seen anything like it.
Akahoshi: Is this true, Sumaru?
Sumaru: Yes. Ninja Art: Kujaku, no doubt about it.
Shizune: Our records show that particular form of training has been suspended for ten years now.
Tsunade: After the Third Hoshikage came to power, he chose to put an end to it. But then, a year ago, he passed away, sadly, and the village lifted the ban.
Shizune: It's curious, isn't it? I wonder what moved him to forbid it.
Tsunade: Hard to say. Only the Village Hidden in the Stars is privy to that. Although, there have been a few rumors on the wind.
Shizune: What do you mean?
Tsunade: Well, details are spotty but most of the ninja who underwent the training, died from it.
Shizune: So the star their village was founded on, this says it's actually a meteorite?
Tsunade: That's right. It dates back to the First Hoshikage who established the village. He discovered that by training in close proximity to the star, his chakra was strengthened. Ever since then, they've held a unique position among the hidden villages.
Neji: Naruto was correct.
Lee: Using chakra to take to the air? That is a formidable shinobi!
Tenten: Wow, so it was true.
Naruto: Well, of course it was true. What are you saying, that you didn't believe me?
Tenten: Pretty much.
Naruto: Wha?! Huh?! Gee, thanks for the vote of confidence, Tenten.
Lee: There was a distress call from the training room. What in the world happened out here?
Naruto: Bad news guys, the star was stolen. It was a ninja and he flew off using chakra somehow.
Lee: You actually saw this?
Tenten: Yeah, but shinobi can't fly, not that I've ever heard.
Natsuhiboshi, why are you so red?
Because I had a sad dream last night.
My eyes are red, from the tears I shed,
Swollen as I cried.
Natsuhiboshi, why've you lost your way?
I'm searching for a child whose gone afar.
He can't be found though I searched all day,
My sad dreams come once more.
Lee: Creeping, creeping.
Tenten: Will you stop saying that?!
Neji: Calm yourself! That canyon is full of poisonous gas.
Naruto: Okay... Maybe you got a point.
Tenten: You ding-dong! We're on a surveillance mission here.
Naruto: Now that's good! Go on, dig in. The food's not going to eat itself.
Akahoshi: Hold up... First things first. We need to to distract these annoying little flies.
Naruto: Man, that guy is about as warn as a iceberg.
Naruto: I'll be on Sumaru like fleas on a dog.
Lee: Well, where there is smoke, there is fire. An inside job then?
Naruto: Let go! Let go I say!
Neji: Calm down!
Lee: It seems that this village has a secret.
Tenten: It seems that way.
Tenten: Follow me obediently.
Tenten: That's an order
Hokuto: I'm sorry, I got ahead of myself.
Naruto: Other villages... Man, you guys are really cold.
Naruto: He's cold-hearted as usual...
Tenten: Same as always.
Lee: Naruto's always impatient, isn't he?
Sumaru: You guys are outsiders. You're not comrades or anything like that.
Naruto: What's with him?
Naruto: Are the ones taken out by that ninja all right?
Sumaru: That's none of your concern.
Neji: We will definitely retrieve the star.
Naruto: That ninja's chakra was amazing!
Lee: Was it really that amazing, Naruto?
Naruto: Yeah! Turning chakra into smoke and feathers, it was the first time I've seen something like that!
Tsunade: Due to the unknown nature of the star, it forcibly strengthens one's chakra. It probably causes negative effects on their bodies.
Naruto: I said it was true! You mean you didn't believe me?
Tenten: Guess not.
Naruto: What's with that? Am I that untrustworthy?
Lee: But, it seems like this is going against my ninja arts.
Tenten: Don't complain.
Tenten: Enough with sneakily!
Why is the summer star red?
Last night, I had a sad dream.
I was crying and talking, with red eyes.
Why has the summer star lost its way?
I know such childish stories.
That's why I have such sad dreams.
Tenten: Somehow he pisses you off, doesn't he?
