Gokuu explains to Lunch that they're going to the Turtle Hermit's house. They arrive, and Gokuu stands at the door and screams that they've brought a pichipichi gal, but he receives no response. Kuririn suggests that he might be using the restroom, so Gokuu decides to go tell him to hurry up. Lunch asks Kuririn why she's here. Kuririn explains that they'd just like her to hang out here for a while. Lunch says that would help her as well, since she's being pursued. Kuririn asks her why those police-looking men where chasing her, but she says they were real police.

Gokuu shouts through the bathroom door that they've brought a girl, so the Turtle Hermit angrily steps out to scold Gokuu for yelling like that. Back outside, Kuririn asks Lunch why the police would be chasing her, so she looks at her large bag of money and wonders if she robbed a bank again. The Turtle Hermit goes to the window, and looks out at her as she wonders if it was maybe a train robbery. Kuririn thinks she must be a rich girl who is joking around. The Turtle Hermit stares her down as she begins to tell Kuririn that they should be careful, because when she sneezes, her personality...

The Turtle Hermit excitedly yells through the window, interrupting Lunch, and then commends Gokuu and Kuririn for a job well done. Kuririn comes inside, where the Turtle Hermit officially accepts them as his students. The three of them then go back outside, where the Turtle Hermit formally greets her. She says her name is Lunch, and explains that the boys helped her. The Turtle Hermit introduces himself as well, and explains that he's going to teach the boys martial arts. He then asks if Lunch wouldn't like to take a bath...err, live here for a while, and she agrees, so long as she doesn't get in their way. The Turtle Hermit does a happy dance.

The Turtle Hermit then asks Lunch if she would also like to learn martial arts from him, but she doubts she could. He tells her she wouldn't have to be completely serious, explaining the health benefits involved. Kuririn then hypes up the old man's reputation to further convince her, which the Turtle Hermit praises him for. The Turtle Hermit then gives Lunch the uniform and asks her to change. She starts to undress right there, until Kuririn reminds her that she can change inside. The Turtle Hermit asks Kuririn if he wants to go back to his homeland.

Lunch comes out of the house wearing lingerie, noting that this looks like underwear. The Turtle Hermit insists that it's the Turtle Hermit School's dougi, since he and the boys are wearing it as well. Now he wants to start training, but a horsefly suddenly flies in front of him. It then flies under Lunch's nose, tickling it, and she yells for them to run away just before she sneezes. Lunch turns into the angry light-haired girl again, and wonders where she is. She then pulls out a machine gun and starts firing at the boys, until she sneezes again. Now she has turned back into the good Lunch again, and apologizes to the bullet-filled boys, explaining that she changes personalities every time she sneezes. She hopes she didn't do anything bad, but the Turtle Hermit says it was nothing.
