Dragon Ball Episode 61
"Korin Tower"
Goku continues climbing Korin Tower, then finally he sees the top. He up onto it" surface of the tower, through one of the holes at the bottom. Goku takes a little rest, and looks around. Goku wonders where the Holy Water is, as he searches the room. Goku opens a pot, wondering if it contains Holy Water. An image forms in the water, of Bulma cooking breakfast. Goku calls out to Bulma, but doesn't get answered. Bulma asks Kuririn if he heard something. Bulma burns her finger, and Goku laughs. The image disappears, confusing Goku. Goku opens the next pot, and another image forms. This time, it shows the time that he met up with Chi-Chi at a lake, and she gave him flowers. The image goes away, and Goku wonders what is going on. Goku opens the last pot, and a giant centipede comes out, and grabs him. Goku sees images of all of his friends. Next, he sees images of Tao Pai Pai, Bora, and Upa. Finally, he sees images of people he will meet up with in the future (Urania Baba and old Son Gohan). The images disappear, and Goku wonders what that just was. A voice tells him that it was his present, past, and future.  Goku asks who said that, and the voice tells him to come upstairs. Goku starts going up a stairway, remembering that a god was supposed to live here.  Goku reaches the top room, and asks where the god is, and also asks for some of the water. The voice says that he is impressed that Goku managed to climb the tower. Goku looks around, and sees a white cat named Karin. Goku comments on how short Karin is. Goku walks to Karin, asking where the god is. Karin says he is the god, and Goku is shocked. Karin asks if he has a problem with that. Karin says that is more like a Cat God. Goku asks Karin about the water that multiplies your strength many times over. Karin says he must mean the Holy Water, and Goku asks for some. Karin walks away, saying that if Goku thinks there is Holy Water, there is some, but if he thinks there isn't Holy Water, then there isn't. Goku asks what he is talking about. Goku says he climbed all the way up the tower to get some. Karin asks if he wants the water badly, and Goku says yes. After some silence, Karin refuses to give any to Goku Meanwhile, in a town, there is a poster up, celebrating Tao Pai Pai's 20th anniversary special. Tao Pai Pai walks through the town, and 2 guards follow him. A guard shoots at Tao. While Tao calmly walks, he kicks up his shoe, and it deflects the bullet. Tao keeps walking, and the shoe gets back on his foot. The guard is shocked, and looks back, seeing his partner got killed by the bullet. Tao arrives at his fancy hotel, and everyone there greets him.  They ask what he wants for dessert, and he requests some raw eggs. Soon, Tao is in his bathroom, preparing a shower. Tao sticks his hand into the water, and screams, releasing energy into the water, to make it boil. As Tao takes his hot bath, he cooks the eggs in the water, and eats them.  Meanwhile, at the land of Karin, Upa looks up Karin Tower, hoping that Goku can get some Holy Water. Back at the top of Karin Tower, Goku angrily says that he must get the Holy Water. Karin points out the pot of Holy Water, on a statue. Karin asks why Goku wants to get stronger, and Goku starts a vague explanation. Karin tells him to shut up, as he isn't good at talking. There is a moment of silence, and Karin says that Goku wants to defeat Tao Pai Pai and use the Dragon Balls to revive Bora. Goku asks how he knew, and Karin says he can read minds. Goku is impressed, and Karin is glad that Goku doesn't have evil intentions. Goku walks over to the statue with Holy Water, saying he is going to drink it.  Karin asks if he can drink it, and Goku asks if it tastes that bad. Karin says no, so Goku goes for the water. Karin suddenly leaps in, and smacks Goku back to the ground with his staff. Goku asks why he did that, and Karin casually tells Goku not to mind him, and get the water. Goku tries getting the water again, but Karin leaps in, and kicks him back to the ground. Goku calls Karin a liar, and Karin says that Goku is allowed to have the water, but must get past him first. Goku makes Karin look away, and leaps at the water again. Karin sticks his staff in Goku's path, and Goku slams into it.  Karin says he won't fall for tricks like that, since he can read Goku's mind.  Karin picks up the bottle with his staff, and taunts Goku. Goku lunges at Karin, but he dodges. Karin dodges another swipe from Goku, and Goku slams to the ground. Karin leaps to the other side of the room, and dodges Goku again.  Karin leaps into the air, followed by Goku. The chase continues for a while, and Goku still can't succeed. Karin accidentally drops the bottle, and Goku goes for it. Karin rushes in, and grabs the bottle again, causing Goku to slam to the ground. The chase continues throughout the day, but Goku keeps failing. Soon, Goku is exhausted, and he comments on Karin's speed. Karin says Goku can't catch him this way, and must read his opponent's movements.  As the chase starts up again, a storm starts.  Meanwhile, at Kame House, Bulma asks KameSennin why he is in the rain, and he says that he is going to get some exercise. KameSennin wonders what is happening above the clouds, to cause this storm. Back at Karin Tower, Goku is on the floor, exhausted. Goku asks if anyone got the Holy Water before. Karin says yes, adding that one person did it 300 years ago. Goku asks how old Karin is, and he responds that he is a little over 800. Goku is shocked at how old he is, and Karin tells him to show some respect. Karin asks if he should tell Goku who got the water. Karin says it was Goku's teacher, and Goku asks what he means. Back at Kame House, KameSennin stands before the ocean, and bulks up.  Lightning strikes him, giving him a small aura. KameSennin fires a blast from his finger, splitting the ocean.         Back at Karin Tower, Karin says that he can tell by Goku's movements that his teacher was KameSennin. Goku asks if KameSennin really drank the water and became stronger. Goku says that Karin must be really important. Goku asks how long it took KameSennin to get the water, and Karin holds up 3 fingers.  Goku is surprised, asking if KameSennin really got it in 3 minutes. Karin says no, it took him 3 years. Goku is in shock.
