Vegeta: “You’ll fight with me Kakarot, unless of course you’d like more bodies to pile up on your conscience?”
Goku: “Ah–? Vegeta, certainly you didn’t?”
Goku: “How sad, I didn’t think you were weak enough to be controlled.”
Gohan: “Dad… don’t.”
Goku: “Answer me! Vegeta, do you let yourself be a slave?!”
Vegeta nonchalantly fires into the crowd of onlookers.
Sounds of fear-ridden people and exploding debris echo in the background.
Vegeta: “Tell me, is it slavery when you get what you want?”
Goku glares angrily at Vegeta and what he’s done.
Gohan: “Stop it, you don’t know what you’re doing!”
Vegeta: “Ehhhh!? Stand aside! This does not concern you! It’s between me and your circus clown of a father!”
Goku: “Circus clown. Well, that’s a new one.”
Goku powers up.
Supreme Kai: “No Goku, you mustn’t. If you fight him here you will be doing precisely what Babidi wishes. Every injury that Vegeta causes will be sent back to the ship and Buu will be revived!”
Goku: “Tell me Vegeta, with that stamp on your head I know Babidi’s been giving you orders. Is this one of them? Are you trying to fight me because of him? Or is this the same old story between you and me? Which one?!”
Gohan: “Does it really matter?!”
Vegeta: “Not to you Gohan, but to a warrior it matters greatly. And you know this as well as I do, Kakarot: In a day you’ll be back to the dead and I will not miss this opportunity!”
Supreme Kai: “Who are you people?! Don’t you see the universe matters more than your meaningless squabble?!”
Vegeta: “MEANINGLESS HUH?!”
Supreme Kai: “Ah–”
Vegeta: “WHAT DO YOU KNOW OF MEANINGLESS?! AHHHH!”
Goku resigned to his fate.
Vegeta: “Spend most of YOUR life ruled by another! Watch YOUR race dwindle to a handful! And THEN tell me what has more meaning than your own strength! I have in me the blood of a Saiyan prince! HE is nothing but a joke! Yet I’ve had to watch him surpass me in strength! My DESTINY, thrown to the wayside! He’s– he’s even saved my life as if I were a helpless child! He has stolen my honor… And his debts: MUST. BE. PAID.”
Feelings externalized and acknowledged.
Goku: “Babidi! Transport us to a place away from people! If you give me that, then I will fight Vegeta.”
