Someone not named Sakura cries in this episode. And he does it like a big fat baby.

Looks like we get a little fanservice in this episode—a rarity for this show. On any other show this stuff would probably go unnoticed but since it's Naruto it has a way of standing out. Trust me, you'll know it when you see it.
Who directed this episode, Jiraiya? It's like we're watching the show from his point of view.
