Goku arriving at Kame House

The chapter opens with Goku flying towards Master Roshi's house, in the hopes of being trained by the man. After stopping at his own house for supplies, he continues his journey towards Kame House. When he arrives, Roshi is watching an aerobics video, not taking notice of the boy outside his house. Goku lets himself in, having to yell in Roshi's ear before he notices the boy. Goku tells the man why he is there, but he shrugs him off and tells him that there is food in the refrigerator. After his aerobics video was complete, he found Goku at the foot of the fridge, having eaten all the food. They then begin discussing Goku's training; Roshi tells Goku that his training is not free, so he must find a cute girl before he will train him. Goku takes off on Nimbus, while Roshi gets ready for his would-be date. When Goku returns, he has brought an overweight, muscular woman, much to the chagrin of Roshi.
