"Dr. Briefs Made This Episode In A Cave... WITHABOXOFSCRAPS!" is the third episode of Season 2 of Team Four Star's DragonBall Z Abridged and the thirteenth episode overall. It was first uploaded on YouTube on April 7, 2010.
The episode starts with Kami's ship landing and Bulma , Gohan and Krillin observing the oddly-coloured landscape. Krillin tries to make a joke about bluegrass, but this is utterly lost on Gohan, whose popular culture knowledge is limited to peach farming. Bulma soon spots four dragonballs, giving Krillin initial optimism. This lasts about five seconds as Bulma notices a Saiyan ship, Gohan senses Vegeta, and the dragonballs start moving. At this, Krillin begins screaming non-stop.When the intro ends, Vegeta is annoyed by Krillin's screaming and senses Cui's arrival.Then he goes taking care of Cui. Eventually Krillin stops screaming, but quickly starts up again as two of Freeza's men arrive. They command him to stop by saying "In the name of Freeza we demand that you stop!" and to "Stay where you are and we'll shoot you!" Krillin tries to question this, but Freeza's men ignore him and destroy the ship, much to the annoyance of Bulma.
Whilst Freeza's men argue about who's hitting the broadside of what, Gohan and Krillin launch an attack and leave the two scouts "washed up". Yes you read right, Krillin beats someone up. But Gohan isn't laughing at all and thus this marks Krillin's 11th owned.
Bulma laments their situation and hopes that at least on Namek she'll find a real man (as opposed to Yamcha ).
Suddenly, Bulma, Gohan and Krillin are forced to hide in a cave as Freeza and his men pass by. Krillin pee's himself after feeling their Ki and changes in the cave,which take 10 minutes. He emerges with new-found confidence and decides to set off after the dragonballs with Gohan, telling Bulma to call Earth and request back-up. When Gohan and Krillin leave, Bulma hides in the cave and screams as it's "everywhere".
Back on Earth, Master Roshi takes Bulma's call, asking her to speak up as he's not wearing pants. He quickly informs Goku of the situation, but Goku is powerless to help until he's healed. Yajirobe promptly shows up with some Senzu beans, but Goku takes a while to realise what this means. In a style reminiscent of Popeye, he soon regains his health and changes into his fighting gear. Goku decides to visit Dr. Briefs in order to get a ship. This confuses Roshi slightly, but he wishes Goku good luck anyway. Goku leaps out of the window, but his flying Nimbus takes a while to show up and Goku ends up landing on the top of a car, setting off the alarm. Roshi despairs.
Vegeta faces Cui and informs him that Saiyans become much more powerful if they are injured in battle. Cui is confused as to why Vegeta would tell him about his defeat at the hands of "a low-level warrior, his half-breed son, a midget and an obese man with a sword", but never really finds out as he is killed almost instantly. It turns out that Vegeta was just using the encounter as therapy by blowing up Cui.
Elsewhere, Zarbon's scouter explodes and Dodoria deduces that Vegeta has taken out the Cui, also known as the "poor fish-faced bastard". Zarbon has trouble remembering which one was Cui, as many people had a grudge against Vegeta. The two are ordered by Freeza to pay more attention, as they are supposed to be leading an invasion of a Namekian villiage. The narrator introduces the new villains, and rightly guesses that Krillin and Gohan stand no chance whatsoever.
