Makoto goes on a day out with Ryūko who explains her stance on mysteries. Makoto relays what Meme had told him to Erio, though she seems reluctant to respond. Later, Meme tells Makoto not to get involved with Erio just because she looks "cute," but even after hearing this he still wants to help her. Makoto decides that dispeling her belief in aliens is the first step to return to society. He attempts this by taking her on his bike and riding off a hill to disprove her ability to fly. The hill turns out to be very steep, and they both get launched into the sea. Erio starts to come to terms with her being a simple Earthling and manages to introduce herself properly to Makoto.
