Episode Summary

EDIT
Closing In
AIRED:
Kami has much to consider. He and Piccolo reuniting could possibly save the world, but the latter's past doesn't prevent frightening possibilities from being overlooked. Meanwhile, Goku is barely stable now and needs time to recover. Unfortunately, the three Androids aren't willing to give him the time. The Z Fighters evacuate him and Chi-Chi, and they fly to Master Roshi's island. Also, thugs learn what the Z Fighters already knew – Androids 16, 17 and 18 should never be provoked.moreless

  • FIller episode!!!

    5.4
    Piccolo reaches Kami's lookout, but the two get in an argument with each other that causes Kami to stall his decision a while longer. Meanwhile, the three androids finally found a car to use. They run into trouble as gangsters come there way. They decide to have a little fun, and tear apart the gang one by one until the police came. Trunks, Gohan, and Krillin, reach Goku's house, and put him safely onto the transport vehicle. Though Bulma gets a phone call.



    Filler episode, not exciting and no fighting although i liked watching 18 and 17 tearing them apart.moreless
  • 18 and 17 are equally good fighters on the road!

    Yes it's filler, but I enjoyed watching 18 and 17 creatively destroy the gang one by one, whether it's speeding up on them or smashing them onto walls, and having them fly over cliffs. It didn't really excel in any way, but it wasted time, but didn't really feel boring; it filled in for time, which is better than boring dragged out filler in the past. Episode does a good job of making you anticipate the next episode even more when they emphasize how important this little phone call to Bulma is.moreless

    The evil androids hit the road in hot pursuit of Goku but are delayed by some hyperactive hoodlums. Krillin and Trunks race to move Goku to a safer hiding place, while up in the clouds Kami wrestles with Piccolo's difficult offer. Everyone is scheming of ways to stop the Androids, but will any of them work?

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • At 12:16 Minutes you can see other woman wearing the same exact Bunny Costume that Bulma had to wear in the episode Boss Rabbit's Magic Touch.

    • Look Closely: Two extras in this episode look eerily like people people from the original Dragon Ball series. One man looks like Shen/Hero (the body Kami took over in the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai), while one of the hoodlums looks like the Dracula Man (one of Fortuneteller Baba's fighters).

    • Look Closely: The license plate for the pink van the androids drive is BB1223. In episode The Reunion, the license plate says 69-69.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Gang Member: Rats, if the cops weren't coming, we would have you guys for lunch.

    • Krillin: Hey Trunks I got one question for you. Are the androids really as bad as you say they are?
      Trunks: They're ruthless and cold blooded! I've told you that before Krillin! Why even ask?!
      Krillin: I was just wondering if we all had to fight, that's all.

    • Piccolo: Didn't you hear what Trunks said about these androids destroying the future of the earth?
      Kami: Yes, but Trunks made a mistake. Didn't he tell you that they are not the same androids he fought in the future?
      Piccolo: (sarcastically) Yeah, and they aren't so bad once you get to know them.
      Kami: I'm serious!
