SummaryEdit

Piccolo and 17 fight it out, while Goku and Gohan wait for their turn at the Hyperbolic time Chamber.

SynopsisEdit

The Androids and Piccolo arrived at a island as 17 decides to take on Piccolo while Androids 16 and 18 sit out. 17 wonders if Piccolo's trying to buy time or just throwing his life away, because last time didn't go so well for him. Piccolo however says that he's not same Namekian 17 faced before and powers up. On the lookout, Goku starts to feel "a lot of Piccolo" right now, either he's showing off or he fighting an Android. Gohan wants to help him but Goku insists on waiting for Vegeta and Trunks to get out of "Hypertonic Lion Tamer". Mr. Popo tells them that Vegeta and Trunks only have four left, which surprises Gohan that they have been here for 20 hours. Goku says that's why it's "Hypersonic", causing Popo to blast him off the lookout.

Piccolo finishes powering up, and attacks 17, with 16 noticing that the fusion with Kami has made him stronger. Meanwhile, back at Capsule Corp, Bulma does some research and finds out that 17 and 18 were orphans kidnapped by Dr. Gero, and had explosive placed inside them as a fail-safe, or if they went rogue. Dr. Briefs mentions that he tried the same with her, but her mother forbid it. This causes Bulma to get pissed off and threatens to take Baby Trunks away from him.

Piccolo's fight with 17 continues, and even launches his new Hell Zone Grenade attack against him, but nothing seems to phase him. 17 points out the hypocrisy of the situation noting Piccolo tried to kill Goku too. Piccolo points out he did it as revenge for his father, while the androids are doing it for their own sick fun. 17 however points out the only reason that they're doing this is because Dr. Gero had it implanted to them while they were in stasis with the phrase "Kill Son Goku" repeated over and over, something Piccolo can ironically relate to.

Krillin notices the fight, and Tien thinks they should go help Piccolo, but Krillin and Yamcha argue why they shouldn't. The two then argue with each other on who had it worse since both of them got stabbed, blown up, and dumped (although Krillin states that Maron took all his money when she broke up with him, while Bulma took all of her money after breaking up with Yamcha). Bulma finishes the detonator (in 22 hours) and tells the three she's coming to Kame House.

Meanwhile, Piccolo and 17's fight has devolved into a grappling yelling fest, and later a punching fest, which 18 notes is really stupid. Piccolo admits he's having fun (while in reality he's almost spent), but Kami and Nail point out a big problem has appeared. Cell has arrived, and wants to have some fun.

In the stinger, it shows Dr. Briefs shooting at Yajirobe since he accidentally ate the clones of his wife earlier. Yajirobe argued that they didn't even taste good, though Briefs yells that they weren't suppose to be eaten that way.

  • Goku's inability to pronounce Hyperbolic Time Chamber correctly

Trivia Edit

  • Vegeta and Trunks do not appear in this episode.
  • It's implied that despite their time together before breaking up, Yamcha never once got to sleep with Bulma. Evidence of this is when Yamcha suggested they did by telling Krillin to ask her, only to suggest to the monk that he doesn't ask her once Chi-Chi points out that Bulma is on the phone
  • This is the last episode of 2014.
  • Goku getting blasted off the lookout by Mr. Popo is a reference to how Krillin got blasted off in Snakeway to Heaven.
