Kuririn is struggling to hold onto Gokuu's back as they fly around on the Somersault Cloud. Gokuu spots a farmer and asks if they would suffice, but Kuririn yells that it's clearly a man. Gokuu is impressed that Kuririn can tell the difference between men and women just by looking, explaining that he must touch their crotch to distinguish them. Kuririn then assures Gokuu that he is male.

A light-haired girl on a bike with a bag full of money is being chased through a canyon by some policemen, who are shooting at her and yelling to stop. She throws a grenade back at one car, blowing it up, but the second car keeps chasing. The girl goes up the side of the canyon on her bike, then comes down the other side into another canyon area. The police car continues chasing her by instead going around the rocky wall. The girl then pulls out a large gun, and prepares to fire it back at them until some hair tickles her nose and she sneezes. She falls off of her bike, and her hair has now changed to a darker color, with less menacing eyes as well.

Gokuu and Kuririn have now reached that canyon area. The police call the girl "Lunch" and prepare to apprehend her, but she has no idea what's going on. Lunch then cries for help, which is heard by Gokuu and Kuririn. Kuririn notes that it's a girl being attacked, and doubts they could stand up to men with guns, but Gokuu dives down into the canyon anyway. Gokuu tells the police that he's here to help the girl, while Kuririn hides, wanting nothing to do with the situation. One of the policemen tells Gokuu he'll be arrested if he interferes, but Gokuu smacks the gun out of his hand and kicks him, knocking him out. Gokuu then leaps over and headbutts the other cop in the face, knocking him out as well. Lunch thanks him, and wants to know how she can repay him. Gokuu asks Kuririn if the old man will like her, and the three of them then fly off on the Somersault Cloud, with Lunch wondering where they're going.
