Expanded Overview

After a recap ofthe previous episode, Nami begins to run up the stairs to face Kalifa, when kumadori stomps in wanting to continue his fight withher. Chopper tells Nami to continue while he faces him. He then transforms into Arm point and attacks Kumadori, telling him that he will be his opponent.

Meanwhile, Chimney and Gonbe save Luffy from drowning, and pump outall the waterhe took in. Once revivec, Luffy went back to hispursuit of Robin. Not thinking things trough, he began to stretch his arms and grab a hold of a nearby cannon, preparing to launch off of it in hopes that he will fly across the whirlpools. But when Chimney tells him she found another way there, he accidentally falls back into the water again. After being rescued, again, Chimney and Gonbe show him the secret passage they found. She told him that they were following "that guy with Lucci" (Spandam), Lucci, and "black-haired neechan" (Robin) to that place. After running downthe stairs, they came to a giant steel door. After finding no way to open it, luffy told Chimney and Gonbe to stand back. Although not seen on-screen, Luffy used Gear Third and broke down the door with tremendous strength. After the dust cleared, Chimney and Gonbe looked in awe at the huge hole that the door once stood... then were surprised that Luffy had been reduced to a Chibi-like form!

meanwhile, Spandam had heard a huge crash, and was worriedabout it, Lucci cooly said that it must have been the pirates, breaking through the doorway. Spandam said that was impossible, no only because it was a solid steel door, butthey didn't know how to get there. lucci told him that a girl and her bunny were following them, and Spandam demanded why he didn'tstop or attack them. Lucci simply said he didn't receive an order to do so. Furious, Spandam told him that his first priority above all else is to protect HIS life and to eliminate anyone who gets in his way. Then told him to take Robin and hurry to the Gates of Justice before the pirates catch up with him. At that same time, Luffy, running down the pathway, hadjustgrown back to his normal size and was speeding ever closer to Robin.

Meanwhile, Nami had just reached where Kalifa was last seen. before entering the room, she wondered how Sanji ended up like he did now. then she heard water running from behind the door. She opened it, and found Kalifa, behind a veil, preparing to take a bath...

After a commercial break, the scene switches to Franky, who was facing Fukurou. Fukurou was using Soru so that franky would not be able to catch up withhim. Franky finally caught him, though, and he through Fukurou against the wall and used his Beads Left move on him. That, however, drained the little remains of his Cola, so he hurried to the kitchen. However, Fukurou suddenly appeared before him, unharmed. Franky calls him a coward for running away like this, which pissed off Fukurou enough to have him use his special punch, Jyugon, which he claims is faster and stronger then a normal Shigan move. Franky, although the attack knocked him back a bit, stood firm and removed the skin from his right hand, preparing to usehis Strong Hammer atack. Fukurou preformed tekkai, however, and since Franky was low on Cola, the attack did little damage. Fukurou punched him again, but Franky said it was a flimsy punch. Fukurou disagreed with him, saying HIS punch was filmsy. Franky said if that was true, then his punch was a paper-punch. Fukurou then said he was just pants...


Then Franky and Fukurou began beating each other up with punches, throwing clothing-realted insults at each other. theirfight crashed through the wall into the kitchen. Frakny noticed this, and saw a huge refrigerater in the room. just then, Chopper and Kumadori crashed into the room. Chopper, now in his Heavy Point form, run outof time on his Rumble Ball use. Kumadori was about to attack, but then Chopper opened up the refrigerater and locked Kumadori inside. Franky yells at him, saying hehas business with that refrigerater, but Chopper, like Luffy, still hasn't forgivenhim for whathe'sdoen to Usopp. Franky tells him though, that if he wants to save Robin, then he'llhave to help him out, by tossing him 3 bottles of Cola, which will power him up.

But Fukurou, now getting angrier bythe minute, uses his Jyugon Ougi (Jyugon Secret Attack) to make dupiclates of himself and repeatedly punch Franky. Franky tries to fight back but he's simply too weak. Chopper, realizing Franky wasnow on his side, decides to help him. Opening the fridge quickly enough so that Kumadori doesn't come out, he tossed Franky 3 bottles. Franky places thme in this own mini-fridge and becomes... Fresh franky, while onion-shaped hair. He uses hisspecial Veggiepunch on Fukurou, butit didn't do anything. After being hit with another Jyugon attack, Franky throws the bottles at Chopper, telling him that it was Vegetable juice and tells him to give him Cola.

Goinv back into the fridgeagain, Chopper tosses Franky 3 morebottles. This time, Franky's hair turns wavey, and sits back, saying that working on the fields have been hard work, they should stopthe fighting and simply have some tea. Angry again, Franky throws thebottles of tea at Chopper, whoe was throughly entertained by this. Franky says hehas not more other personalities and says he will only take Cola. Chopper then tosseshim3 more bottles, which were definitely Cola. Franky jumps to get them, but Fukurou uses his Rankyaku technique onhim. Although he was knockedtotheground, Franky had placed the bottles of Cola in his fridge and was powered up!

Franky the proceeds toward Fukurou, with his fists up, telling him to keep his guard. Fukurou just laughes, wondering if he's going to give another weak punch. Franky uses his Strong Hammer move, which knocks Fukurou through 4-5 walls. With Fukurou almost passed out, and Chopper amazed, Franky says that Fukurou was right; the punches hegave befor were weak, just like he said.
