After having a chat with Mr. 0 and encountering the Unluckies, Sanji retrieves an Eternal Pose for Alabasta. The giants are alive and well, and their friendship secure as the Straw Hats are about to leave Little Garden. The crew leaves Little Garden and sets sail for Alabasta, with a little help from their giant friends in escaping the island's strange guardian, a large fish.
Once Sanji realizes that he is talking to Crocodile, he pretends being Mr. 3 and convinces the Shichibukai that he has eliminated Vivi and her Straw Hats escort. During the conversation, Crocodile's messengers, the otter, and its partner, the vulture, called the Unluckies, arrive to deliver an Eternal Pose, leading to Alabasta, to Mr. 3. They attack Sanji, but he kills them. To justify the noisy interruption, Sanji tells Mr. 0 that one of the Straw Hats was still alive. Crocodile tells him to return to Alabasta, then, after the conversation, orders Mr. 2 to intercept and eliminate Mr. 3 en route for his failure to make accurate reports. While Brogy mourns the "death of Dorry, creating a rainfall of tears, Dorry suddenly wakes up, much to the shock of everyone and concludes that, after a hundred years, Brogy's axe had gotten dull and only knocked him out. Using the Eternal Pose to guide them, the crew sets sail. Dorry and Brogy see them off, and, to thank them, sacrifice their worn out weapons to kill a giant goldfish as it attempts to feed on the Straw Hats' ship.
