Mistaking Someone's Name is Rude! (人の名前とか間違えるの失礼だ, Hito no namae toka machigaeru no shitsurei da) is the thirty-third episode of the Gintama anime.
The Yorozuya receive two Amanto carpenters from Sakamoto as an apology for destroying their home two episodes back.
The gang starts to repair the Yorozuya place, but all they manage to achieve is causing further damage to the building. They receive a box from Sakamoto, who destroyed their house with his spaceship, in which they find two Amanto carpenters, Unkei and Kaikei. They have been paid by Sakamoto to fix Yorozuya's place. The trio has little faith in them, which causes the carpenters to work all night long and have the house ready the next day. However, the gang is displeased because of small flaws in the construction. Gintoki uses a fictional character, Mokichi, without the carpenters knowing, in order to fire them up and make them work harder and better. The next day, the brothers have finished the work, but the gang asks for further stuff in the house's exteriors, with Gintoki making up another story with Mokichi to raise their morale. The next day, though, one of the carpenters listens to Gintoki saying that Mokichi never existed and so the brothers decide to leave their work and get away from Earth. Gintoki catches up to them in the terminal and explains that the whole Mokichi story was misunderstood by them and that Mokichi exists inside every carpenter's heart. This makes them return and finish their job.
The episode ends with a reporter visiting the Yorozuya's place to find a whole castle estate built there. He tries to ring the doorbell, but this causes the castle to fly up into space. The trio is revealed in the debris, their house being destroyed once more.
