"I'm pathetic. I can't go to the pool unless I put on a girl's swimsuit." - Ranma Saotome

"I sweated torrents of perspiration waiting in here for 3 days and 5 hours, but it was worth it" - Sasuke Sarugakure while waiting in the mailbox


  • The exploding payphone is reminiscent of the self-destructing tape often found in Mission Impossible. As Sasuke is acting as a spy in this episode, it does seem appropriate.
  • In the sub, the new ninja servants are named in order: Kokichi, Hanbei, Heizo, Shikanme, and Yashichi. The dub never gives any of their names and only two of them (Kokichi of the Koga clan and Heizo of the Iga clan) reveal their origins; the other three simply say they're their rivals.
  • Yet again music from Maison Ikkoku is used when Sasuke is debating whether or not to peek at female Ranma.
  • The last episode in season five where Angela Costain voices Nabiki. Her sister Elaina Wotten-Costain will replace her as Nabiki for the remainder of this season and all of season six. Angela will return to the role in season seven.
