Gohan and Goku in their new outfits on the Lookout

(Goku and Gohan are gorging on the food Mr. Popo prepared for them, as though they had not eaten in the longest possible time)
Goku: (With his mouth full of pasta, muffles unintelligibly)
Piccolo: All right, Goku. Why don't you try saying that without your mouth full?
Goku: (Exchanges puzzled expressions with Gohan, and then sucks the rest of his pasta and swallows)
Piccolo: (Disgusted) Ugh... disgusting...
Goku: What I was saying was that Gohan and I can't cook very well, so it's been a long time since we've had a home-cooked meal.

Major Events

  • Goku and Gohan emerge from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber as Full-Power Super Saiyans.
  • Goku decides to meet Cell at the arena, creating natural disasters with the clash of their energies alone while staring at each other.


  • When Bulma is looking at Android 16's data there is a picture of Goku attacking Frieza, though Dr. Gero didn't add any information on the battle on Namek, since he thought he had collected enough cells and had observed enough through the tracking device before Goku went to Planet Namek.
  • After Goku came back from checking out Cell in his complete form he told Trunks about his feelings towards his chances of beating Cell, even though it was Vegeta that asked him if he thinks he can beat Cell.
