From the offices of Yamagato Industries, Hiro and Ando wait for a phone call for their new hero business, Dial-A-Hero. They get a call from a little girl, who asks them to save her cat. They do this successfully. The little girl walks away pleased, as Ando tells her to tell her friends about the business.
Hiro gets a call from Tadashi who is on the roof of Yamagato and preparing to jump to his death. Hiro goes up there, but Tadashi commits suicide (he only called so he could have a witness) and Hiro travels back in time to try to stop it. After 47 tries, each failing, Hiro convinces Tadashi to not throw his life away and to tell his family how he really feels. After Hiro promises to always be his friend, Tadashi gets off the roof and leaves.
A Tokyo cop tells Ando that the only way he could find somebody who knew Hiro was by looking at the Yamagato business card Hiro was carrying. Hiro, Ando, and Kimiko talk about saving Dr. Watson in the Dial-A-Hero office.
