Chi-Chi throws her helmet-knife at Master Roshi

After arriving at Kame House, Goku and Chi-Chi see Master Roshi. When Goku introduces Chi-Chi to Master Roshi, he makes a comment saying that he would have preferred Bulma to have come with him instead because her breasts were bigger and that the name Chi-Chi was more appropriate for her. Chi-Chi who seems to not believe that he was not Master Roshi decides to take the blade out of her helmet and throw it at Roshi saying that if he can dodge it that it must really be him. Roshi turns around at the last second to try and block it with his cane, but the blade cuts through it and hits him and gets stuck in his head. Afterwards, Roshi shows her his drivers license to prove its him which she then apologizes and pulls the blade out of his head causing him more pain.

Goku, Turtle and Chi-Chi shocked the Bansho Fan was thrown away

Once they request that they want to borrow the Bansho Fan to Roshi, he looks in his house for it but Umigame reminded him that he was using it as a potholder and threw it out after he spilled wonton soup on it. Instead, Roshi decides that he will journey to Fry-Pan Mountain himself to put the flames out. In exchange for putting the flames out for them though, Roshi privately sets up a deal with Goku to allow him to feel Bulma's breasts. When Goku and Chi-Chi get back on the Flying Nimbus to head back, Master Roshi summons the flying Baby Gamera to take him to Fry-Pan Mountain. Once they get back to Fry-Pan Mountain to meet back up with everyone, Roshi arrives but is dizzy from riding Baby Gamera and vomits.
