This kid FLIES.

- Help! He's got a Hebrew Meter!

- Heliometer!

- Wait wait wait... what do you mean the kid flies?

- Yeah, what do you mean flies?

- You see, if I use this to blast the helium

in those balloons,

it will geometrically increase their heely-osity,

and then your president will fly straight up,

through the ceiling, and she won't stop

until she hits the moon.

- The moon!?!

- All right now--

- Okay, you listen to me Doctor Minyak,

if you hurt that girl, you're dead meat.

Not--not that know that girl...personally.

I just care so much 'cuz it's my job to care...

about people...

like that girl in that chair who I do not know.

- No, you listen!

For the next three hours,

my minions will be traveling all over Swellview--

robbing, stealing, burgling,

all the evil gerunds.

And the two of you will do nothing to stop me.

Because I'm watching you, Kid Danger and Captain Man.

And if you leave my view...

The girl flies.

- Hup...Oof.

- Fine... we'll just call the police.

- If you call the police...

The girl flies.

- G'ah! - Thought that was gonna work.

- Yes... There there there...

Chu chu...Yes! Hahahahaha!

Yesss! Yessss!

- this yours?

- No.

- 'Kay.

Burger Restaurant on Doheny.

And I want Rico to break into the funeral home

and steal all their snacks!

- Guys! Guys!

Psst! Psst!


- Geez! - Gross!

- You sprayed my face!

- Just listen, Schwoz and I think we know a way

that you can go stop Doctor Minyak.

- We can't "go" anywhere.

- We have to stay here.

- Nooo...

Doctor Minyak just has to think you're here.

- But how can we uh-- - Shhh! Just wait there.

Yeah. Cheeses that we enjoy. - Yeah, I'm into cheddar.

I like Manchego-- a hard Spanish cheese.

- Well I hate cheese.

Especially Spanish ones that are hard.

And I hate you.

- Ah. - Fair enough.

- We appreciate the feedback.

- Hey Schwoz. I'm at Henry's house.

You ready?

- Yes. Go ahead and distract Minyak.

- Got it. Bye.

Or like remote controls. - I just said...

I mean they're way better than those C batteries,

Miss, I don't want any, I despise all batteries...

- This is the best you can do Schwoz?

A poster and some belts?
