Recap / Dragon Ball Z Abridged E 13

Go To

Gohan: Krillin, they have the Dragon Balls.
Krillin: Yes, Gohan. I noticed.
Gohan: Did you feel their power levels? They were as strong as Vegeta!
Krillin: Yes, Gohan! I noticed!
Gohan: But that one guy at the front... he was like a hundred Vegetas!
Krillin: YES, GOHAN! I NOTICED! On the bright side, I no longer have to pee anymore.

Original Airdate: April 7, 2010

The heroes have finally arrived on Namek…and so has Vegeta! Even worse, the planet is already crawling with fiends who are even stronger than Vegeta, some of whom destroy the good guys' ship. Luckily, a Senzu Bean restores Goku's health, allowing him to go to the rescue... provided Dr. Briefs has a spaceship he can spare.

These tropes be whack, yo!

  • Brick Joke: On the spaceship, Krillin had a long monologue about being frustrated by Bulma's constant parading around in her underwear, and never getting to have any alone time. Once they have a minute's peace on Namek, Krillin goes into the cave alone for several minutes. Later, when Bulma goes in to set up camp:

  • Bring My Brown Pants: After getting a feel for Freeza's power, Krillin, who in the previous episode stated that due to the talking toilet had not gone to the bathroom, no longer has any need to pee.
  • Deus ex Machina: Just as Goku is bemoaning that he can't help his friends while stuck in the hospital bed, Yajirobe shows up with some Senzu beans.
  • Establishing Character Moment: We get one at the end of the episode for Zarbon, showing off his Camp (maybe Camp Straight) side when he gives his opinion on the newly-deceased Cui.
    Zarbon: Wait, which one was Cui?
    Dodoria: You remember. Purple guy... hated Vegeta...
    Zarbon: Gonna have to be a little more specific.
    Dodoria: Reproduces asexually.
    Zarbon: Oh, him! Eww! You know, I wouldn't have minded so much if he wasn't all up in my face about it. I can only swallow so much.

  • Famous Last Words: When the ship is destroyed, the toilet says "NEIN!"
  • Lame Pun Reaction: Krillin's attempt at a one-liner merely adds a point to the Krillin Owned Count.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: Bulma and Krillin end up generating one of these for Yamcha:
    Bulma: Who knows? Maybe here, I'll finally find a real man.
    Krillin: What about Yamcha?
    Bulma: A real man.
  • The Stinger: The episode ends with Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu, and Piccolo arriving at King Kai's planet. He gets everyone started training, and has Yamcha wash his car.

Yamcha: Oooh, like in that movie! Wax On, Wax Off.
King Kai: Yeah, go wax off.

How well does it match the trope?
