" "Yuda is an extremely calculating criminal, and has many ingenious techniques at his disposal.
" "He murdered his wife Keiko-san to collect on her life insurance policy, and was only arrested because of Mouri's incredible detective skills.
" Do you think we'll be alright? What do you mean? Aren't you scared he'll want revenge?! Revenge? He said so when he was arrested I'll get you for this someday! Mark my words, Kogoro Mouri! Remember? We'll be fine, Ran! There's nothing to worry about! How can you be so relaxed about this?! You're the one he's after! I'm probably the one he should be after, not the old man.
Therefore you killed her, Yuda! Give yourself up! He worked so hard to escape! He wouldn't dare cause any trouble that would lead to his recapture! He's probably fleeing the country as we speak.
I sure hope so Now then, off to work I go! I'm coming too! Where to?! You come too, Conan-kun! What for? To protect Dad, of course! Come on out, I'm ready for you! Give me a break! Why did I have to come here with them? What's he looking at? He's not watching the race Come on! Come on! Faster! The old man?! Don't tell me he's— Huh?! Damn.
I hit you once and all my luck goes down the drain.
It's not nice to blame others.
My luck's back! Ow! My luck's not back.
This lady has really developed muscles! So she's not seriously injured? Not really, except for one thing.
All she can remember about herself is that her name is Maya.
She lost her memory?! Technically speaking, it's a light case of retrograde amnesia.
Partial memory loss, in other words.
Maybe it happened when she fell off those stairs? No! It happened before that! She was already out of it by then But then where? Will she get better? Of course.
But it could happen tomorrow, in a month, or even three years from now— there's no way for us to know when.
That's terrible Alright! This calls for a great detective! I, Kogoro Mouri, shall restore Maya-san's memory! Hey, now.
What does a great detective have to do with that? Hi there! How are you feeling? Maya-san, was it? My name's Mouri.
Kogoro Mouri.
I'm a detective.
A detective? Just relax and try to think back.
Can you at least remember where you lost your memory? Sorry In your state, you couldn't have walked very far My deductions tell me that you must have lost your memory nearby Is there anything you can almost remember? You look like you exercise, so maybe you were on your way home from the gym! Gym? You certainly are incredibly proportioned! Surely you do some kind of sports, like body-building or weight-lifting! Her index fingers have scars on them.
What does she do to get those kinds of scars? Say, does your job involve using wires at all? I What was that?! What's the matter?! Ow, my head! I can't remember anything else! Help me! Conan! Now look what you've done! But it looks like my luck has returned! What a situation.
Can you really bring her memory back? Nope.
I haven't the slightest idea how.
I didn't think so.
Hey, did you borrow this from the lady at the hospital? Yeah.
That's all she had on her.
A puzzle piece and a page torn out of a book The Gospel According to Matthew, Chapter 5, Verse 3.
Isn't this from the Bible? The Bible? Huh? Yeah, it is! Maybe she's Christian.
A Christian would tear up a Bible? No, I guess not.
Which means that— Maybe she used it as a notepad.
A notepad? See? There are light indentations on it that look like writing.
You're right.
Ah, she must've written on the previous page and accidentally tore this page out along with the other one.
"9.
13, Last Supper" Maybe this was a dinner date? Yeah, that's gotta be it! But who with? What do you mean who with? Wait, that's a good question.
Where did she write this? It might be fastest to have her look at something that identifies herself.
Where might she unconsciously use a Bible to jot down some notes? I can see her writing in it while on the phone, then ripping the pages out.
A hotel! Say, hotels have Bibles in all their rooms, right? Hotels? Now that I look at it, this is really nice paper! It's nice and smooth and really high quality! Yes! It would have to be from at least a 3-star hotel.
That narrows down the number of possible hotels.
Yeah, Dad! Let's check each hotel one by one! Let's go! You two are coming? What's that supposed to mean? Nothing at all! "Yokoyama General Hospital" Will you really be alright? Yeah, I even got the doctor's permission.
I didn't ask you! I'll be fine.
I just want to know who I am and where I'm from! Please let me come with you! Leave it to me.
Using my detective skills, I've determined that this is a page from a Bible in a high-class hotel! Soon I'll know which hotel you were staying at! There'd be no suffering if everything was that easy Off to Mount View Hotel we go! Come on, Dad! We're leaving! Do you know if this young woman has been staying here? Huh? Might she be staying at this hotel? Hey, have you seen this lady before? This is the 12th hotel now! I'm so exhausted! Welcome back, Tachibana-sama.
You know who she is?! Of course.
She's a guest here.
Maya Tachibana-sama.
She checked in two days ago.
We did it, Maya-san! Bingo! This is the place! Here, I'll search her things.
You two get out of the way.
Yeah! There's nothing really here to identify who you are Can you remember anything? Now what? The address and phone number they have on record at the front desk appear to be fake.
But there's no mistake that Maya-san was staying in this room.
What could— I'm not even sure if that's my real name Who am I— Is there something about that pendant? My head! It hurts! I can't stand this anymore! Miss! Maya-san! Wait! Maya! Look out! It's him! Why is the man from the racetrack after Maya-san?! Ow! Are you alright, Dad?! What's going on? What was with that car?! Now I get it! Maya-san! There's someone out to get you! And the shock of being attacked must've caused you to lose your memory! Huh? Where'd Conan-kun go?! This area is full of one-way streets and dead-ends! I might be able to catch up! But that predator-like look that Maya-san had She reacted almost like she knows when she's in danger.
Who is she?! Darn it! I lost him! Man, what a mess That's it! You got it! Hey, officer! What happened? Was there an accident? Get out of here, little boy.
It's dangerous.
When did the accident happen? Three hours ago.
Now skedaddle.
We found her at the crosswalk near 5th Street three hours ago! That's not far from Beika Hotel! Wait a minute! Maybe she took the bus from the hotel, got in an accident, and then lost her memory from the shock! Then she walked in a daze to the pedestrian bridge.
A bus! A truck! And a collision? I remember! I remember now! Way to go, Conan-kun! You did it! It was just luck, though.
But why did she leave after that without getting any medical treatment? Maybe because that man was trying to get her? So despite having lost her memory, she instinctually ran away from danger.
Hey, let's take a ride on the bus! Yeah! You might remember where you were planning to go if the accident hadn't happened! It's hopeless.
You don't remember anything? Don't rush yourself.
You've already remembered a lot in one day.
But with all the people getting on and off, nobody will remember her.
She didn't leave any tracks to follow! This is it! I was supposed to get off here! "Gas Tank" Let's walk around for now.
Look out! Maya-san?! Don't tell me these two are— What's piano wire doing there?! What the hell? Are you trying to kill us all?! You're mine! Dad! No! Both the time at the hotel and now Judging from the timing, he's not trying to kill her or even all of us! He's after old man Kogoro! Ran-neechan! Stay with Maya-san! Wait, where are you— My head! Are you alright? Maybe you should rest somewhere Stop! If he's out to kill Kogoro, then he must be— This is bad! Maya-san's gone— What are you two doing? Isn't it obvious?! Help! We owe you one Bad news! Maya-san disappeared! I'm sorry.
I only looked away for a second, but— Where could she have gone, though? There's a chance that man got her! No, that's highly doubtful.
But maybe she made herself disappear! Maybe she got her memory back Anyway, let's look for her.
You two go that way.
OK! Let's go, Conan-kun! "Last Supper" Damn it! Thanks to that woman, my plan's been ruined— So this is the target.
You're too late! I wanted to watch him suffer and die, but no! I don't want anyone getting in my way.
Maya-san! I remember now! That man's hideout is over there! Wait! This is 9th Street, building #13! Maybe those numbers written in that Bible were an address! Which means that's the place! So that's what "Last Supper" referred to! Yuda! So it was him! So it was Dad he was after?! The Last Supper So that puzzle piece was part of this picture! She's been here too, then! Who in the world is she? How is she involved with this guy? Huh? What's this?! Yuda's puzzle piece was the key to information about Kogoro! In other words, she came here to get it from him That's it! Now I see! Ran-neechan! Call the police! Conan-kun! How did you find out where his hideout was, Maya-san? Yuda and Maya-san clearly knew each other! Who exactly is she?! I'll get you for this someday! Mark my words! Her well-trained body and sharp reflexes And then that wire she pulled out! If she used a bus instead of a taxi or rental car to hide her tracks like most professionals do, then there's no mistake! She's a professional killer that Yuda hired to take Kogoro out! I'm pretty sure he came this way Go! Maya-san.
Your memory returned when Yuda dropped the concrete on us, didn't it? That's right! My memory came back because of him! I should really thank him! I should've realized when you tried to hide the marks on your hands at the hospital.
Realized that you were an assassin who uses piano wire, that is.
Just figuring out that I use wire for a living was impressive enough.
Who exactly are you?! Conan Edogawa.
A detective.
A detective?! Dad! Are you alright?! What in the world just happened?! It would seem I've lost.
Just my imagination samekaketa koucha nominagara yubi ni karamu ito o asobase Playing with threads around my finger while drinking lukewarm tea Let's walk lightly to the bossa nova rhythm bossa nova no rhythm de keikai ni arukou The puzzle pieces are in my hands puzzle no piece wa te no naka sa That's right sou sa Ah-Ah-Ah- raishuu mo ore wa chigau fuku de onaji basho ni iru sa I'll be in the same place next week but with different clothes Step by Step aseru-koto nante nai no sa Step by step, there's no reason to be anxious Case by case, I don't care if you laugh Case by Case warawareta-tte kamawanai Beyond the countless days, she's waiting for me kazoekirenu hibi no mukou ni aitsu ga matte-iru kara I gotta go my own way It seems both he and I chose the wrong target, little detective.
What now? What did she say? Oh, she was saying that Kogoro Mouri really is a great detective since he captured the same guy twice in a row! Looks like luck is on your side again! Really? Guess that means I'll be raking it in after this next G1 horse race, then! Next episode's hint right after this! NEXT EPISODE Now then, please explain the situation during the kidnapping.
I don't want to think about Naoko being dead! You're a famous corporate raider.
Are you sure you haven't garnered a lot of hatred in your time? I don't want your lousy money.
You can keep it! Ran! Let's go! I don't think he would be happy, even if he were avenged.
