As Shenron is summoned, the Dragon Team panics as the endeavors they had gone through to obtain the Dragon Balls were seemingly for a lost cause. However, before Pilaf is able to make his wish, Oolong's quick thinking allows him to interrupt Pilaf and wish for a pair of panties, much to everyone's shock. As Shenron grants the wish, the Dragon Balls disperse, foiling Pilaf's plans for world domination. As Bulma and Yamcha praise Oolong for his quick wits, Gokū is discouraged to learn that the four-star Dragon Ball, or the memento left to him from his grandfather, is gone. Enraged, Pilaf orders the execution of the Dragon Team, leading the team to be trapped in a room with walls made of a tougher material than the last room and a ceiling composed of super-reinforced glass. As Bulma reveals that the Dragon Balls are lost for a year before they become traceable and useable, Pilaf reveals his plan to kill the Dragon Team by using the Sun to cook the team alive as it shines through the glass ceiling, much to the Dragon Team's distress.
