While Tenten responds saying that she wanted more out of them, Neji and Lee are drying themselves after the mission which results in having Tenten attack them with her fan again.

Neji then comments on how Tenten never once asked them to act like a gentleman towards her. Tenten agrees saying that "it wasn't in their nature". Neji then asked why Tenten wanted them to act more gentleman towards her, in which Lee responds by saying that by Tenten kicking the soccer balls to their groin earlier shows that women are stronger than men, in which Neji understands.
