Jackie the Snotty Cheertator says that her fake heroism is going to be the cornerstone of her campaign for class president. She finally, thankfully, leaves and Claire gives her an awesomely snotty, "Tee hee!" as she goes. Heh. Claire heads to her locker, but not before BGM demands a kiss on the cheek. Ew. Uncle Inappropriate Touching, much? He calls after to her to be careful, and Claire makes a mental note to coat herself in Clorox as soon as possible.
Tokyo. The title card says "Hiro & Ando," so I guess we've finally learned Buddy's name and I can stop calling him "Buddy." Ando is watching Niki strip on his computer because obviously, in Tokyo, porn sites aren't blocked on workers' computers. He seems to be downloading it to his video iPod. Hiro pops up and Ando asks him where the hell he's been for the past two days. Hiro excitedly (is there any other way?) claims that he teleported into the future. Ando's like, yeah. And Anna Nicole Smith isn't a chicken-grease-covered drug-addled lawyer-marrying slut-bar. Hiro holds up his copy of 9th Wonders and says that it tells the story of his entire journey. He demands that Ando read it. Sure enough, as Ando pages through it, we see Hiro's trip.
Ando thinks Hiro's been hitting the sake, but Hiro just says that he found the author of the book, only he was dead. I love the way Hiro pushes his nerd glasses up onto his nerd nose with his whole nerd hand. It's so nerdish! Hiro explains about the nuclear bomb in New York and then says that it's up to he and Ando to stop it. Again, Ando's all, dude? Sake much? Hiro's all, you're in here too! He opens up the book to a page that repeats, word for word, the conversation they're currently having. Ando pretends that Hiro's crazy and says they have to get back to work. Hiro says he can prove everything to him beyond a shadow of a doubt. Hiro's wristwatch alarm starts to beep and he shouts that they have to get going because a little girl's life depends on them!
Oh, good Christ. Peter's trying to fly again. When will he give it up already? Fortunately for him, he's decided that the whole rooftop ledge idea is a bit dangerous, so this time, he's just... on top of a jungle gym. Heh. He keeps jumping and hilariously landing face-first in the playground sand. Milo has really nice forearms. I'm not so crazy about his hair, but I can work with it. He climbs up onto the bars over and over as a little kid in a red cape made out of a towel watches him. The humiliation of falling several times in front of a child eventually becomes too much for Peter, so he heads off for some REAL humiliation at the hands of his brother Nathan.
