The episode began with Naruto starting the idea of finding out what was under Kakashi's mask. Sasuke said that he thought it was ridiculous, and started to walk away from them while Sakura thought to herself that it sounded like fun. Naruto, wanting to convince Sasuke, then wondered aloud if Kakashi actually had lips like a blimp. Sasuke pictured Kakashi taking off his mask to show a large mouth with gigantic lips. Shocked but intrigued by the picture, Sasuke struggled to resist. Naruto, feeling that Sasuke only needed one more little push, again pondered, seemingly to himself, if Kakashi actually had buckteeth. Sasuke froze and thought up another image of Kakashi taking off his mask and having large buckteeth. Sasuke shuddered, and was finally convinced.
The scene changed to the Ichiraku Ramen Bar, with Team 7 (including Kakashi) eating ramen. They persuaded Kakashi to eat the ramen first so that he would take off his mask and eat, giving an opportunity to look at his face. When the ramen was served to him, he inspected the ramen and commented on how good it looked. He picked up his chopsticks, and, in the last moment before he was about to take off his mask, Ino, Choji, and Shikamaru appeared (Ino saying, "Hey, Sasuke, what a coincidence!"), which blocked the others' view of Kakashi's face. After a short time spent getting Team 10 out of the way, Kakashi had already finished his miso ramen. Shocked by how fast Kakashi had eaten, Naruto noticed that Teuchi and Ayame were both awestruck at the sight of Kakashi's face (suggesting that Kakashi has an extremely handsome face). The team then simultaneously said, "Okay! Now I'm curious!"
