Silver takes off his trenchcoat, and continues asking questions, but Gokuu just ignores him and walks away. Silver rushes over and snatches Gokuu's sack, and asks if the Radar is in here. Gokuu gets pissed, then runs over even quicker and snatches it back. Silver realizes he's not an ordinary brat, but nevertheless boasts he'll beat him in five seconds. Silver throws a punch at Gokuu, but Gokuu just ducks it and kicks Silver in the gut. Silver staggers back up, and kicks at Gokuu in frustration. But Gokuu jumps over it, and whacks Silver in the face with his tail, knocking him out.

Gokuu walks off, wondering what he'll do without Kintoun (it's a long way to run to the next ball), until he realizes these guys might have those capsule things in the house. He finds a case, then goes outside and tries throwing one. Out pops a robot, who greets Gokuu with an "Ossu." The robot asks what he wants, and Gokuu says he just wants wants to go that way. The robot suggests he go that way. Gokuu explains that he wants to go really far, so he needs something he can ride in. The robot says to try the #3 capsule, and out pops a plane. Gokuu says he can't ride it, but the robot knows how to pilot it. And off they fly.

In the far-off west lies Red Ribbon Army Headquarters. Inside, there's a short guy with an eyepatch and a cigar. Leader Red. Red complains to his tall negro assistant, Assistant Black, about the troops not getting the Dragon Balls fast enough. A bear guy then comes into the office, and says something has happened to the Dragon Ball that Colonel Silver was responsible for. They head into the control room, and Red notices it's moving on the giant radar. But the bear guy says it's moving north, towards General White's area. Red yells to get Silver on the line, and Silver slowly gets up and stumbles towards the house to respond. Red wants to know what's going on.

In the plane, Gokuu asks if it isn't getting colder, and the robot says robots don't get cold. Meanwhile, Red wants to know who the strong enemy is that has a better Radar. When he finds out it's a lone kid, he declares that Silver will be executed. Red tells Black that it's a kid, and tells him to contact General White with orders to kill the brat and get his ball. Red then tells Black not to stand near him, so he doesn't make Red look like a chibi.

Gokuu wants to know why it's so cold here, and the robot says it's just cold in the north. Gokuu looks at the Radar, and says it's just below them. But the robot is frozen, and the plane crashes. Gokuu is safe a distance away, lying freezing and unconscious in the snow, and two Red Ribbon soldiers spot the crash. A nearby, well-guarded tower is White Company Base. A Russian-looking guy in a sweater is in the top floor control room, and he receives word of the plane crash. It must be the brat's plane, as relayed from Headquarters, but there is no one inside but a robot. He tells the soldiers to look for the brat, who probably got away. And a little girl* is dragging the unconscious Gokuu through the snow...

*This girl, while named pretty early in the anime, is not given a name in the manga until Chapter 515! I haven't yet noticed any explanation for this, but I assume it's a case similar to the Shuu/Soba thing (IE, Toriyama gave her a name for Toei, but none of the dialogue in the manga makes her name clear yet). Anyway, her name is Sno.
