* SmartBall: Goku perfectly outlines why using the third grade of Super Saiyan is incredibly impractical, noting that while it increases the raw strength immensely, it also drastically reduces one's speed and mobility. Gohan is left nearly speechless at this rare moment of insight from his father, and Goku, as if he were coming out of a trance, apologizes for the tangent, saying that he was "thinking about fighting".

'''Trunks:''' Did...did you make that last one up?

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitchComment: Tien calls Trunks' new form "infuriating." Piccolo thinks it's because [[CantCatchUp the power gap between them and the Saiyans keeps on widening]], but Tien says it's because Trunks didn't use the form earlier to kill 18, Cell, or [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Vegeta]].
-->'''Piccolo:''' Why Vegeta?\\

* FridgeHorror: Invoked by cell on trunks when he relates his past to Trunks by calling attention to how he arrived in the past and the implications of that. While trunks was already aware of how Cell arrived in the past (he used trunk's time machine) he never stopped to think about what that meant until Cell [[LampshadeHanging spells it out for him]].
** '''Cell:''' What do you know about time travel?\\
