Goku, Kuririn and Bulma escape from the underwater pirate cave that they had ventured into in search of one of the Dragon Balls, facing off against General Blue in the process. They return to Kame House with their prize. Unbeknownst to them, however, General Blue has survived the encounter, and follows them back.
After watching for a time, General Blue sneaks ashore and takes advantage of the chaos at Kame House, using his telekinesis to throw a rope and bind the unwitting heroes. He escapes with the Dragon Balls, but not before leaving a bomb behind. It is only when Launch returns that the gang is saved - she listens to Goku and unties him with seconds to spare, so that he can dispose of the explosive.
This scene was adapted into episode 55 of the Dragon Ball anime adaptation.
