Episode 8 - The Kamehaha Wave
Goku and Chi-Chi finally make it
to the Kame House. However,
Chi-Chi’s a little skeptical about whether or not
that’s Master Roshi, so she throws her helmet blade to
see if he could dodge it. He senses the attack but
not soon enough to dodge it. While Chi-Chi berates
him, the Turtle Hermit pulls out his Hermit Club Card as
proof. Chi-Chi apologizes and pulls out the blade
from Roshi’s forehead.
Master Roshi then talks to Goku
in secret and says that he’ll let the use the Bansho
Fan if Bulma can set him up on a date. Goku
agrees, and the master also mentions not to tell Chi-Chi
about the deal. While searching for the Bansho
Fan, Turtle mentions that Roshi was last using it as a
placemat. The hermit says that he threw it out
because it was sticky from some juice he spilled on it.
Master Roshi then decides to go to Fire Mountain himself
to put out the fire. After calling Baby Gamela,
the three were on their way.
Note: Baby Gamela is a pun
for Gamera: a turtle that flies by spinning in a circle
while firing rockets to propel itself.
Unfortunately, the dub messed up that pun.
Upon arriving at Fire Mountain,
Ox-King rushes to greet his old master, and Roshi
immediately falls to the ground (riding around in
circles made him dizzy). After
berating Ox-King for killing people over his treasure in
his castle, the mighty giant begs for his forgiveness.
Meanwhile, Roshi pulls Goku and Bulma aside and explains
the deal he made with Goku. At first, Bulma gets
very mad, but Roshi points out that the Dragon Ball is
still inside the castle. Bulma will only get him a
date when the hermit puts out the fire.
After taking off his turtle shell
and shirt, Master Roshi starts to bulk up his scrawny
body instantly. Meanwhile, Yamcha and Puar are still staring in awe. After
harnessing his energy and uttering the phrase
“Ka-Me-Ha-Me-Ha,” Master Roshi releases the energy
towards the castle. When it was all over, he
returns to his normal self, but everyone mentions that
even thought the fire’s out, the castle is destroyed
as well. However, Bulma was able to find the
Dragon Ball in the rubble.
Master Roshi tells Goku that the
Kamehameha Wave took him 50 years to perfect.
However, Goku manages to perform it within 50 seconds
(maybe not that long), and destroys the capsule car in
the process. Then, Goku mentions that his wasn’t
as powerful as Master Roshi’s. Master Roshi is
dumbfounded, but after Ox-King mentions that he’s the
grandson of Gohan, they briefly talk about him.
When Bulma sees that Goku
destroyed the car, she became upset, but Ox-King offered
the group a jet car to use for a job well done.
However, before Goku, Bulma, and Oolong take off, Master
Roshi reminds Bulma about the deal. Quickly, Bulma
pulls Oolong aside and asks him to set Roshi up with one
of his friends. Oolong replies that it’s a no-go and says all of his friends
are pigs. After asking him to get her out of the
mess, Oolong changes into Bulma to tell him. Instead,
he tries to set him up with Bulma. Angrily, Bulma
blows off the deal leaving a surprised Master Roshi.
Goku and Chi-Chi talk for a
little bit with both asking if they’ll think about
each other. Eventually, the group takes off, and
Yamcha and Puar follow in their own air car.

Goku and Chi Chi finally arrive
on Roshi’s island.
Roshi greets Goku, and mistakes
Chi Chi for Bulma. Chi
Chi does not believe that Roshi is who he says he is,
being an old man. She uses her hemet blade and
says if it were Roshi, he would dodge it. The
blade hits Roshi right in the head, but doesn’t kill
shows Chi Chi his I.D. to prove it. He finally
gets the blade out. Goku explains that Ox King
wanted the Bancho Fan to clear the fire from Fire
explains that the Bancho fan does three things.
When waved once, it creates a
strong gust of wind. The
second time, it creates a rain cloud, and the third
time, it creates a heavy rain cloud. Roshi
realizes that he had used the fan for a carpet and had
thrown it away, but Roshi offers to push out the flames
himself. But, the turtle hermit first asks Goku to
give him a “moonlight stroll” with Bulma. Turtle
says that he can’t have a date because of his code,
but Roshi pleads to Goku that it is the last years of
his life. Turtle again ruins his plans by
explaining that Roshi drank from the fountain of youth,
so he won’t be dying off for some time. Goku
finally agrees to ask her for a walk. Goku and Chi
Chi take the Nimbus cloud to Fire Mountain while Roshi
takes a spinning ride to the Mountain. Everyone
finally arrives, and Ox King falls at his feet to Roshi.
Roshi falls in dizziness since his ride almost spun his
head off. Roshi gets up and then shouts at Ox King
for attacking people over a stupid treasure. Ox
King begs for forgiveness, and Yamcha watching from
behind, can’t believe his eyes. Roshi tells Ox
King to get up. Before putting out the flames,
Goku, Bulma, and Roshi talk behind a wall. Goku
tells Bulma about the deal they made. Bulma
refuses to go out with Roshi. Roshi says it’s
only for a stroll. Bulma finally agrees, only
because he is helping put out the flames. Roshi
gets a boos from Goku up to a wall near the flames.
He suddenly bulges his muscles, and then cups his hands
together. Yamcha explains that the technique is
the Kamehameha Wave, which puts all the person’s
energy into one light beam. Roshi uses his attack,
and the flames disappear. Ox King tells Roshi that
he destroyed the castle with it, but Roshi says it was a
mistake. Bulma and Oolong head through the rubble
to look for the 6th dragonball. Goku,
amazed by the Kamehameha attack asks Roshi to teach him
it, but Roshi explains it takes 50 years to learn.
Goku aims at the car he and Bulma are using, and mimics
Roshi. A small blast comes out from his hands, and
it totals the car. Roshi and Ox King are amazed,
and Roshi asks Goku where his grandfather is (Roshi
believes that Gohan was still alive and training Goku).
Goku explains that he died a long time ago. Roshi
asks Goku to train with him, and Goku says it would be
an honor. Yamcha, from behind, is again amazed,
since Roshi has gained a reputation for being very
selective of his students. Bulma and Oolong
finally get the 6th dragonball. As a
final favor, Bulma asks Oolong to transform into her and
go on the walk with Roshi. Oolong says he won’t
do it, but after the “P Word” is uttered, he finally
transforms into the short, fat Bulma he previously did
when he met Puar. Bulma says it looks nothing like
her, so Oolong tries again, and this time, he perfectly
mimics Bulma. Bulma (Oolong) goes to Roshi, and
just to tick off the real Bulma, Oolong pretends she is
in love with Roshi, and asks him to call her.
Bulma comes after Oolong and shouts at him.
She then sees the car and wonders how they are
going to get back. Ox King rewards Goku with a new
car, and Goku, Buma, and Oolong head on for the final
Dragonball. Yamcha and Puar head on behind.
With six dragonballs in possesion, there is only one
more, but that one is in the hands of Pilaf! And
what better way to find more dragonballs than the
Dragonballs coming to you?
Bulma/Goku/Oolong: 6 Dragonballs
Emperor Pilaf: 1 Dragonball
Yamcha/Puar: 0 Dragonballs
