Send him to hell, guys! I, Yaiba, shall defend world peace! Yaiba! Take care of those jerks! Use your kick! Yaiba Kick! I'm in high school.
So what am I doing watching this drivel? Don't you like Yaiba, Conan-kun? I love it! Go, Yaiba! Okay, say cheese! Talk about fun! Thank you for shopping with us today.
Thank you.
We look forward to seeing you again.
Bye-bye! Bye now! Yaiba! Yaiba! He fights for justice! Yaiba! It's gone! Yaiba's autograph is gone! You lost it?! I was going to treasure it for my entire life, too Hold on a minute.
When we took the picture with Yaiba, I seem to remember Oh, geez.
Let me see the picture, Ayumi-chan.
OK Here you go! I seem to recall Genta saying that he was hungry when we took this Yeah! I bought a hot dog and then— It's at that shop! I'm going to get it! But the place is closed by now.
I say leave it for tomorrow.
Do whatever you want! I'm going to go get it! Genta-kun! Wait! Hey! Whoops.
My deductive skills are to blame for this.
Please hurry! The security system is going to activate in 10 minutes! Genta-kun.
That door's going to lock when the security system activates! I can get it in less than 10 minutes! See you later! See you tomorrow! Now! Wait! Hey! Stop! Ugh! Yikes! Here it is! Yes! My treasure's safe! All thanks to Conan-kun's great detective skills! No, this was nothing at all We better hurry before the security system activates! No! What now?! If we go to the security guards' office inside the building and explain the situation, I'm sure they'll let us out! Really?! Let's see here Security Office! Floor B2! Kamen Yaib— The jewelry store's on the 6th floor, right? Yeah.
And there are antiques in the convention hall on the 7th floor.
It's the elevator lady— Excellent.
We have until morning to take whatever we want.
It's a gang of thieves! We're in big trouble if they find us! They'll kill us! Let's get outta here! But what about the elevator lady and those other people?! For now, let's stay hidden and contact the police! OK? Yeah! Huh?! There's no dial tone! The cord's been cut! This one too! They've all been cut! Let's use this phone! Nope.
It doesn't work.
The phones must be down because of the security system! So nobody's going to come to rescue us?! I want to eat a ton of eel lunches before I get killed! It's too early to give up just yet! Please notice! Hey! Help! Up here! It didn't work Genta-kun! Knock it off! The robbers will hear us! Darn, it won't break! Give it up! The windows here are made of especially thick glass! Alright! In that case OK! Cut it! You got it! Come to papa! What's that?! Security office! There's a weird sound coming from the 7th floor! Roger that.
Hey.
Use the security cameras to check out the 7th floor! I'm pooped I told you it was pointless! Everyone get down! Hey, Conan! What about the window?! Oh no! It's no good! You won't make it in time! Nothing strange that I can see.
Nothing strange?! Those were some pretty loud sounds we heard! Let's go! Let's take the loot and split! No.
Let's check it out just to be safe.
Damn it, aren't there any exits around here? Quiet! Someone's coming! Genta-kun! Found you, you little brats! Oh no! Sorry I'm so late! Sonoko and I got caught up in a discussion I'll make dinner right away! Huh? They've seen our faces! Get 'em! Everyone get on! Here goes! Come back here! Security office! Do you read me?! Turn on the lights! What'd you say? I didn't copy There's a bunch of little brats in the store! Where'd those lousy kids go?! Hey! What's going on?! Hey! What's going on?! The other guys in the security office know we're here! They turned on the lights to catch us! Let's get away from here! Dad.
Dad! What do you want? Conan-kun still hasn't come home! How should I know where that lousy kid is? Why'd you wake me up? Dad! What good timing! Genta! Get out! Everyone out! Hurry! What's going on, Conan-kun? Oh! They almost had us trapped! That was close! Thanks, Conan-kun! Save that for after we get out of this place! I thought Conan was at the department store.
Didn't he go with his friends to see some kids' show? It's pitch dark outside.
Did you try calling the store? Where's my food, anyway? Are you trying to starve me to death?! This is Marutan Department Store.
We are currently closed.
Hurry! We need to get as far away from them as possible! Got you! We will be open during our regular hours tomorrow, from 10 AM— See? So what do you say you make me some dinner now? Now who are you calling? Is this the Kojima household? This is Ran Mouri.
Has Genta-kun— Come back here! Those voices They've been caught! You stay here and hide! Got it?! Yeah! Let go! Where are the other two?! Help! I don't wanna die! Stop right there! This is the police! We have this department store surrounded! There's no escape! Put your weapons down and release the children! This way! Hurry! Damn kids! There's no police here! Just those kids! Damn it! They used a bunch of stupid mannequins! Don't let 'em get away! Is this the Yoshida residence? I'm Conan Edogawa's— Eh? Ayumi-chan hasn't come home yet either? I just had a call from Mitsuhiko-kun's family too What is it? What's going on? Get up, Genta! Do you want them to catch you?! OK, OK We're trapped! Over here! Damn it! What is it, Conan-kun? Did you forget something?! No, that's not it I just realized something strange, but I don't know what.
What could it be?! Conan and his friends were kidnapped? Yes, that's the only explanation Hold on.
Did any of their families receive ransom demands? No, but My guess is that they're taking their sweet time coming home.
They'll be back soon enough.
I wonder So how's about some dinner? Come on! Cook me some food already— Is this the investigation department? Inspector Megure, please.
Works better than I expected! Geez! Genta-kun! You're a real liability! I couldn't help it, I'm hungry! Come back here! Sorry to bother you at such a late hour.
Well? There aren't any incidents at the moment that might involve the children, but it is strange that none of them have returned home yet.
Could something have happened to them?! I've put out a bulletin.
Don't worry, they'll turn up soon.
Thanks! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm in the middle of an important case.
Well, we've done all we can do.
All there is to do now is wait for any reports about them.
Let's go get something to eat! Let's go— I've always wanted to do this at least once! Forgive us.
We'll pay for this if we make it out alive.
I wonder if we even will make it out alive Don't look so down, Genta-kun! You've had plenty to eat now, so cheer up! We're going to take care of them and get out of here! In the name of the Detective Boys! In the name of the Detective Boys Yeah, it must be a pretty important case if they're still at it this late Are you trying to say that Conan-kun and the others aren't important?! No, that's not what I meant Darn that Conan I'm missing my dinner thanks to him A gang of department store thieves? They sneak in after the stores close and steal jewelry and electronics Could this be the important case he was talking about? Department store?! It couldn't be Calm down, Ran! OK!

Hurray for the Detective Boys! Wait a second! Aha! Now I get it! Who's there?! It's me, elevator lady.
What are you doing here, little boy? Never mind that, we're in danger— there are some bad people here.
Let's escape together.
You can drop the act.
I know what's going on, elevator lady.
Or should I say, the 5th member of the thief gang! W-What are you talking about? It was a 5th person who activated the escalator earlier.
This person had been waiting to catch all four of us at once.
Among the remaining people in the security office, you were the only one who knew how many of us there were.
You planned in advance to get inside by getting a job as an elevator girl so that you could scout out the place.
Who in the world are you?! Conan Edogawa.
A detective.
Excellent deductive work, boy.
But it seems you didn't know that I was actually the gang's boss.
A pistol?! It's not fair that you have a gun! Stop! OK! I'll lure her onto the roof! The game's over, little boy! Come on out! There you are! Basketballs! Annoying little brat! Stop your pointless resistance! Go! Damn it! Let me down! I did it! What in the world? These are the thieves! Take them into custody! I don't feel so good What a bunch of silly kids! You can say that again.

We didn't have to pay for any of the things we ate or broke inside the store.
Is that really alright? Don't ask questions! Chalk another one up— for the Detective Boys! Next episode's hint right after this! NEXT EPISODE What was that sound?! It came from her room! Sensei?
