1671. Hiro's just transported his hero and himself to a remote forest clearing. His hero is decidedly ungrateful and demands to know what happened. Hiro says that he saved his life and this makes the guy turn tail and run, saying that fighting "ryo" is not worth dying for and that Takezo Kensei can keep his damn money. This confuses Hiro. If he's not Takezo Kensei... Just then, the real Takezo comes around a tree with a crossbow pointed at Hiro's face. He picks up the sword the other guy dropped and tells Hiro that if he'd been able to put a sword through the chest of the samurai leader, he would have been made a very rich man. Takezo asks if Hiro's a monk, but Hiro insists he isn't; he's Takezo's biggest fan. He knows all the stories and thinks Takezo's a hero. Takezo thinks Hiro's been taking crazy pills. Takezo removes his ornate mask and reveals that he's Julian Sark! Damn, that guy NEVER dies. Hiro's again confused. He's all, "Takezo is gaijin?" Takezo's like, "I go by that name here, but I sure as hell don't go by 'hero,' lemme tell you that." Hiro: "Nerrrrrrrrrt?"
After the break, we catch up with Bennet, who's still working in paper. Only it's the Kinko's kind of paper, and his boss is a dicksmack with a moustache made from pubes. Pube-Stache gives Bennet a hard time for not installing printer cartridges and Bennet has to swallow his desire to slam the guy's head with an output tray due to his dedication to the whole un-extraordinary plan. Pube-Stache gives this whole spiel about the paper business being dog-eat-dog and how you have to WANT IT and does Bennet WANT IT? And Bennet just goes, "Yes sir," and walks away, contemplating how easy it would be to make a copy of the guy's heart while it's still beating.
