Act Five: Gero Finally Defeated

ACT FIVE: GERO FINALLY DEFEATED

INT. HOSPITAL ROOM -- AFTERNOON

The room slowly comes into view: we're looking through
someone's eyes. The readouts show its an android. Everything
rapidly comes into focus, revealing a man in a white coat,
a green-haired woman stands next to him wearing a similar
but a little shorter coat.

Suddenly a bald head comes into view from the side.

KRILLIN
(happy)
You're awake! He guys come look,
18's awake too!!

Gohan bounds happily into view and surrounds the bed to
arrive at the other side of Krillin.

GOHAN
(happy)
I'm glad you're awake!

P.O.V. ROOM, TWO BEDS EACH AN ANDROID, OTHERS PRESENT

Vegeta stands in a corner, arms crossed, looking
uninterested. Chi-Chi stands next to him, equally
uninterested since she's never met the androids. Trunks
has joined his mother and the doctor and looks glad.

18
(focus on doctors)
Who are you?

MICHEALS
(pleasantly)
I'm doctor Micheals, I'm the one
who healed your flesh.

BULMA
(friendly)
I'm Bulma Briefs, I repaired the
machine part of you. I'm also
Vegeta's wife.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
44.


18 looks around a little fearfully, until her brother
interjects as he steps out of bed.

17
Relax, 18. They haven't tried to
kill me yet and I've been awake
for an hour. I think it's about
time we're leaving.

MICHEALS
I don't think so. I've never treated
a cybernetic organism like you
before, I'd like to keep you another
day for observation.

BULMA
(flippantly)
Yeah, your all mechanical friend
16 was easy, but I'm no
cyberneticist myself either, and
apart from your deceased creator
there's no one on the planet with
the practical experience. I want
to make sure you don't come falling
apart come tomorrow.

The concept that he might fall apart, or worse, go insane
by whatever the woman, and 25 had done, made him crawl
back into bed quickly.

MICHEALS
(to 18)
Who created you actually?

BULMA
(answers for her)
Dr. Gero.

MICHEALS
(shuddering)
Man, I knew him while I was still
in college. Met him on a symposium
once, that was just before he went
completely bonkers. Wasn't he part
of the Red Ribbon army twenty years
ago or so?

18
(annoyed)
Yup.

MICHEALS
Well, I'll be leaving then.

KRILLIN
(more happy than
before)
You hear that, 18, you're going to
be fine. With Bulma on the case
that's a guarantee.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

18 narrows her eyes at him and growls. Krillin laughs self-
consciously. To the side Gohan laughs as well.

CUT TO:

EXT. HOSPITAL -- AFTERNOON -- THE NEXT DAY

The group comes out of the hospital the next afternoon.
Android 18 still sour from the wounds inflicted by her
brethren. Krillin tries to help her out. Vegeta looks at
him in irritation, he wanted to train with the bald guy,
instead he's dragged along here. Gohan brings up the rear
after 17 and Bulma, and he's smiling.

18
(annoyed)
Get away from me.

KRILLIN
(hovering about her)
Oh, come on. I can help.

18 pushes him aside.

18
(screaming)
I don't want you around me!

The group, except Gohan, suddenly stands still in shock at
her screaming, and also because the hurt look on Krillin's
face. Even 17, who would have been the least inclined to
see anything in the little bald headed guy couldn't see
why he deserved such treatment. Especially since he knows
his twin sister well and thought he saw something in her
eyes. Gohan though just walks on from the rear to the front
of the group.

GOHAN
(calmly, but intense)
18, Krillin has saved your life
twice over already and has done
several things for you, many people
would wish somebody did for them.
Now I don't think you should just
fall in love with him, be his
friend, or even like him, but he's
more than deserved your respect,
and I expect you to treat him as
such, unless...
(Gohan suddenly
transforms into
Super Saiyan 2 and
looks deeply into
18's eyes)
You want to tangle with the power
that beat Cell, and just now 25?

18 backs up, laying eyes on the terrifying second level
for the first time.

18
Ok, ok, respect.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
46.


Gohan powers down and smiles as he turns around gently and
continues walking.

Roll credits.
