"Hey you like the girl, right. So what's up? Why didn't you wanna wish to revive that guy too?"
— Tien asks Krillin about both Android 18 and 17

"(blushes) Well I know it's strange... But I want her to be truly happy. And those two will be such a good couple and she would be much happier with him. Well, That's why."
— Krillin happily tells them about his granted wish but is unaware of Android 18 is overhearing their conversation while spying on them

"Don't be sad, this is the way he wanted to be. Besides, I can feel him mom. He's there."
— Gohan, comforting his mother

"Chi-Chi, Gohan's right, honey. Since Goku chose to stay there, I'm fine about it. Goku's always known what's best for everybody. Always"
— Ox-King

Bruce Faulconer tracks

  • "The Dragon Theme" - When Krillin decides to use the last wish for Shenron to remove the self-destruct bombs from the Androids bodies.
  • "Cell Contacts Goku" - When Master Roshi and Bulma find out that Goku is dead after his sacrifice in the Cell Games.


  • This is the last episode where Bulma's hair is shoulder length and the final episode where Gohan is an only child. In the Buu Saga, he gains a younger brother, Goten.
  • This is the last episode in the FUNimation dub where Stephanie Nadolny regularly voices Gohan. For the Great Saiyaman Saga onward, she is replaced by Kyle Hebert who voices Gohan for the remainder of the series.
  • The conversation between Android 18 and Krillin is different between the original dub and Kai dub within FUNimation dub where Android 18 refuses to join with Krillin on his request after granting his wish from Shenron. But in the Kai dub, she would say "I'll see you later" before leaving the lookout. This is due to Android 18's line being voiced by Colleen Clinkenbeard in the Kai dub to change the lines from Meredith McCoy in the original dub.
