Cell gets some unwanted advice from the island locals.

With the Z-Fighters regrouping at Kami's Lookout, Semi-Perfect Cell is left to search out Android's 16 and 18 only to get distracted by the locals. Meanwhile, Bulma comes with gear to help the Z-Fighters as Goku and Gohan enter the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.

These tropes are easily the greatest thing you've ever produced:

  • Breather Episode: Of sort as it's in between episodes that feature a lot of fighting.
  • Berserk Button: Cell bashes it with Vegeta.
    Cell: Aw, what's wrong, Prince? Did I touch a nerve?
    Trunks: You pressed the "Goku Button".
    Cell: I'm sorry, the wha—
    (Vegeta socks Cell in the gut)
    Vegeta: You shouldn't'a did that.
  • Call-Back: The Goku Button is pressed again, this time by Cell.
  • Description Cut: Before leaving the lookout, Trunks expresses concern on what horror's Cell is causing. It soon cuts to Cell listening to Sally talk about her marriage counseling.

  • Distracting Disambiguation: While Cell is calling out for Android 18, residents of the nearby islands start to yell back with some relationship advice.
  • Imagine Spot: Vegeta mentions full-blooded Saiyans with regards to hair (as opposed to Trunks' hair growing out, unlike his), saying they only get customization with bears and mustaches. Goku imagines Vegeta with a mustache.
  • Kill 'Em All: When Cell is asked if he has "inadequacies in the bedroom", he decides he's had enough of the islands and proceeds to blow them up one at a time. Lucky for Androids 16 and 18, theirs happens to be last.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Sally's quip about "inadequacies in the bedroom" is specifically why Cell blew up all the islands. So all the people who died can blame her for their deaths, even though they were all brought back later.

  • Running Gagged: Gohan has some lip for Goku when he tries to use the Phrase Catcher:
    Goku: And we're gonna fight. A lot.
    Gohan: I need an adult.
    Goku: I am an adult—
    Gohan: No. No, you are not.
