Episode 46 - Big Trouble for Bulma

A Summary of the English Dragon Ball Z Episode 46, "Big Trouble for Bulma" by

    In a fit of rage, Vegeta hurries back to the cave where he fought Zarbon.
 After searching through it and finding that Krillin, Gohan, and Bulma have
gone, he returns to his hiding place and adds to his collection the dragon
ball that he took from Krillin.
    Gohan, Bulma, and Krillin find a space between some mountains and decide
to make it their new hiding place. Bulma is complaining about how bad Krillin
smells, but he has better things to worry about.  He is planning to take
Gohan to see Guru so that he can awaken the boy's sleeping powers.  Krillin
believes that if Gohan's powers are awakened, then they can beat Vegeta!  So
both boys depart, leaving Bulma to keep an eye on their dragon ball.
    Vegeta sits on one of his balls and pouts.  He knows that Freiza may spot
him if he flies away and looks for Gohan.  Plus, someone might steal his
    Bulma is sitting in a lawn chair when a blast comes out of nowhere and
almost hits her!  She looks up and sees Vegeta coming right at her...and he
looks mad.  He demands to know where his dragon ball is, and the horrified
Bulma points to the ball (It's by her chair.) and tells him to take it. 
Strangely, he doesn't see it and thinks she's fooling around with him. 
Vegeta is about to fry her to a frazzle when...Bulma wakes up, kicking and
screaming, and realizes that it was a dream.
Freiza is growing rather impatient, and he begins to fire wild blasts all
around Namek, causing some serious earthquakes.
Namek is shaking, and Bulma tries to hold on to the side of the mountain and
keep her foot on the dragon ball.  She is unable to do so, and the ball rolls
into the sea.  When the earthquakes finally stop, Bulma walks out to the sea
and sees that the dragon ball is barely submerged.  Not wanting to get wet,
Bulma tries to use a stick to get the ball, but she only pushes it in
farther.  However, Bulma realizes that underwater is a safe hiding place for
the ball and decides to leave it there.  But when she casually glances at her
bleeper, she realizes that the ball is heading deeper and father away fast ! 
In panic, Bulma runs back to the sea, and the ball is gone!  She finally get
a hold of her self, takes out a dino-cap, and creates a mini-submarine. 
Feeling a little more in control, Bulma hops in and maneuvers through the
water.  She follows her bleeper, which leads her to a sea monster.  Bulma is
terrified, but sees something shiny on its back...The dragon ball!  She fires
a torpedo at it, and the thing turns away.  Luckily the ball rolls off its
back and onto the sandy floor.  Bulma is going down to get it when she
notices a huge, beautiful pearl.  With dreams of fame and endless attention
in her head, she forgets about the dragon ball and goes to the pearl.  Bulma
tries to get her "hands" on it, but a disturbance in the water causes her to
slip down deeper and deeper.  The precious dragon ball goes down with her. 
Bulma watches as it settles among hundreds of other balls.  Thinking that
they are gigantic pearls, Bulma makes her way toward them.  Out of nowhere,
this giant crab comes up and catches her sub in its claws!  Bulma manages to
get away, but the crab is crushing everything in its path to get to her
again!  Finally, the crab backs off but only to watch the "pearls" break open
and the baby crabs come out.  Bulma realizes that the crab was only
protecting her eggs, but a rock that the mother crab whacked is about to fall
on the babies!  Bulma races over to them, catches the rock, and holds it
while the crabs crawl away.  She then grabs the dragon ball and speeds toward
the surface.  Once on land, Bulma clings to the dragon ball wearily.  The
worst seems over when...two of Freiza's freaky henchmen appear over her, and
they want the ball!
