  • Quotes

    • Goku: My reason for helping is simple. If I destroy you, Kami would suffer as well. Besides, without a rival to fight, I wouldn't have much to do. You seem to fit that role nicely.
      Piccolo: You're a moron if you think this changes anything between you and I. Mercy is a loathsome trait and you will soon that I have no such weakness. When that glorious day arrives, the whole world will be mine!

    • Roshi: (to Piccolo) Funny, they never look psychotic when they're sleeping.
