Episode 1: The Return of Radditz! ... Wait...

Links: Transcripts | Wikia
0:56 Radditz: Did Kakarot screw this up? Oh goddamnit, I knew we should have sent Turles
Explanation: Turles is the main antagonist of the movie Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might
1:34 Radditz: So this is why dad said I couldn't keep Appule
Explanation: Appule is a reptilian looking Frieza henchman. Apparently Raditz wanted to keep him as a pet, but Bardock thought he might accidentally kill him. His fears may have been unjustified, given that Radditz only ever became as strong as a saibaman
2:48 Lanipator: DOUBLE SUN... [lani and Vegeta3986 fight] fine... I'm just gonna go practice my Vegeta. Ass.

Double Sun... == Double Sunday. It's one of Raditz's attacks in DragonBall Z Budokai. As for the Lani/Vegeta3986 fight, apparently there were two early DBZ dubs: the Ocean (heavily censored and edited) and Funimation (far more faithful to the Japanese original) dub. Lani begins to say Double Sunday when he is interrupted by Vegeta3986 who then takes over the role, if you listen closely, you can recognize the voice change. This appears to be a reference to the two dubs.

Also, Raditz's "signature attack" was never given an exact name in the original series. However, like most unnamed attacks in Dragon Ball, the attack has been given several unofficial names by the various video games in the series, like "Keep Your Eye on the Birdie" and "Saturday Crush". "Double Sunday", the name that Lanipator uses, is actually the name of the dual energy blast that Raditz uses to sever Piccolo's arm. This explains the argument between Lanipator and Vegeta3986, as the name "Keep Your Eye on the Birdie" is prefered among fans.[1]

3:44 Lanipator: I'm drinking OJ! Now it's Apple Juice! Now it's beer!
Explanation: A reference to the censorship in the Ocean dub
4:37 [M Night's face pops onto the screen] What a twist!
Explanation: A double reference to Robot Chicken and the M Night Shamaam... Shamyalian... shamalamading... oh to hell with it! He's most famous for creating movies with crazy twists, like the Sixth Sense. Also a recurring joke on Reddit.

Explanation: Piccolo is singing the Mah Nà Mah Nà song . Perhaps made most famous the the Muppet's rendition
6:15 Piccolo: Makansa... makans apappa... makansappa... oh to hell with it! Special beam cannon!
Explanation: Piccolo was trying to say "Makankosappo", but could not pronounce it correctly. "Makankosappo" is the original japanese name for the "Special Beam Cannon".
6:28 Piccolo: Riiiiccolaa... ahwwhhhhhaa!
Explanation: A reference to the ricola losange ad [1]

Episode 3: Happily Ever Afterlife

Links: Transcripts | Wikia
0:22 Nappa: Guy who's as strong as a saibaman says what?
Explanation: Saibamen are green humanoid characters that can be grown from a liquid concoction. Nappa grows them to fight against the Earthlings. Each is as strong as Raditz. That's right, Raditz was so weak, they could actually grow Raditzes.

Episode 4: Snakeway to Heaven

Links: Transcripts | Wikia
Title explanation: Play on Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven
1:13 Goz and mez: we are here to [clap], pump you up!
Mez: Ach he has a piece of the fruit, ach nein! Don’t eat the fruit, don’t eat the fruit!

Links: Transcripts | Wikia
Title explanation: clearly some reference to an incarnation of Puff the Magic Dragon (there's a song and multiple films)
1:22 Helmet: You must construct additional Pylons.
Explanation: A meme originating from the great RTS game Starcraft. As a Protoss player you must construct pylons in order to build more units, which is easy to forget, so you're constantly beind reminded to "construct additional pylons".
5:23 Bulma: I don't get it. Why are we doing this again?
Roshi: Because my sister Baba told us to.
Explanation: Roshi's siser Baba is a fortune teller. Knowing the future, she tells Roshi to bring Goku back.

Episode 7: Saiyans? On My Planet? (It's More Likely Than You Think).

Links: Transcripts | Wikia
Title explanation: According to Know your Meme, the joke stems from an old ad ("Pornography? On my computer? It's more likely than you think.")
4:31 Jimmy: Oh my god, he blew up the cargo robot! ...and the cargo was PEOPLE!
Explanation: In the Ocean Dub, due to their steadfast refusal to mention death, they said that Nappa blew up a cargo robot [1]
5:23 Nappa: But, Vegeta, then you have to worry about the Fraggles.
Vegeta: Oh God damn it, Nappa, nobody's going to get that.
Tien: [off screen with echo] As a matter of fact...
Tien: I did.
Explanation: Fraggles are humanoid characters from the Muppet show Fraggle Rock that eat radishes. Nappa mistakes 'Raditz' for 'radish' (Raditz's name is a pun on 'radish'). This constitutes the second Muppet reference in DBZ abridged (the first being Piccolo singing the Mahna Mahna song)

Episode 8: Nappa's Best Day Ever

Links: Transcripts | Wikia
1:15 Krillin: That's it! I can't take it anymore! I can only be pushed so far!
*video game select for Krillin*

3:27 Nappa: Vegeta! The Pokémon's on my back.
Tien: Chiaotzu! No!
Nappa: I can't get it off, Vegeta! Here, I'll use Rock Smash.
Explanation: As TFS is fond of Pokemon references, this could very well be reference to Rock Smash

5:45 Krillin: Piccolo...do you have a plan?
Piccolo: That depends. Can you get him in a Full Nelson?
Krillin: Any plans that don't involve killing me?
Piccolo: Well, there is the Multi-Form technique.
Krillin: But doesn't that cut our power levels by...
Piccolo: Plan A or Plan B, Krillin?
Krillin: Plan B, Plan B!!
Piccolo and krillin: KAGEBUSHIN NO JUTSU!
Nappa: Vegeta! I can't...."Believe it".
Explanation: "Full Nelson" is reference to episode 2 where Goku gets Raditz in a full nelson, and Piccolo blasts both of them. The latter two are Naruto references. "KAGEBUSHIN NO JUTSU!" is reference to the Shadow Clone Technique from Naruto. "Believe it" is Naruto's catch phrase
1:15 Vegeta: Nappa, where did your armor go?
Nappa: I had a hell of a day, Vegeta. I sank their battleship......and their whales.
Aquaman (offscreen): Nooooooooooooo.......
Explanation: 'battleship' is a reference to the game Battleship in which one can sink an opponent's battleships Aquaman screaming 'noooooooo' is a reference to episode 5, where the super friends convene to stop the Saiyans, and Aquaman can only offer his ability to speak to whales.

Episode 9: The Set Up

Links: Transcripts | Wikia

Explanation: Shoop the Whoop (aka I'M A’ FIRIN’ MAH LAZER) is a meme, derived from the Cell Saga. Not sure where the you-a-making-me-so-mad comes from. Maybe I Love Lucy?

Roshi: And what about King Piccolo?
*They all remember*
Bulma: Good times, good times… Whatever happened to Launch?
Roshi: Who?
Explanation: Meanwhile, back at the ranch ... is a phrase frequently used by narrators of American cowboy movies and TV shows as a segue from one scene to another.

Goku: AAAAAAAOOWWW! That was in terrible ta-a-aste.
