|List of episodes|
Conan is chasing the robber with the skateboard. While chasing, Conan contacts the Detective Boys with their badges to get ready for the trap to catch the robber. While the robber is trapped, Conan kicks the can to knock the robber to the trap and the Detective Boys caught him. The police considered them a great help.
While Conan, Ran, Kogoro, Ayumi, Mitsuhiko, and Genta are walking down a narrow alley discussing a crime case, Conan notices a red sportscar coming up from behind. They prepare to move to the side, but suddenly the driver accelerates, clipping Ayumi and then bailing.
|Hit and Run|
Shocked and outraged, Ran prepares to take care of Ayumi. Kogoro leaves to call the police and an ambulance; and Conan, Mitsuhiko, and Genta take up pursuit of the culprit on Conan's skateboard.
As they rush after the driver, Conan notices to his puzzlement that the car constantly keeps stopping, then accelerating away as they come near it, as if deliberately wanting them to stay on his tail. They briefly lose their quarry near a closed-down sheet metal factory labelled Ishikura Industries, which sports a huge puddle and a lot of tire tracks at its rear entrances. As they begin to lose hope, the car suddenly appears in the street before them before taking off once more. But the greatest puzzle in this case is yet to come: The car suddenly stops on a public street, making Conan and company bump right into its tail, and then the driver gets out, goes off to a nearby police box, and turns himself in.
Later, at the Beika Hospital, the Detective Boys recount that the driver had allegedly panicked after having hit Ayumi and that his conscience finally convinced him to turn himself in, but Conan does not trust that story. Fortunately, Ayumi was not seriously injured, but she lost her Detective Boys Badge in the accident, which is now nowhere to be found. When Conan promises to get her a new one from Professor Agasa, he earns himself Ayumi's gratitude and Mitsuhiko and Genta's jealous stares. But then Kogoro approaches, announcing that in the very same factory the boys have passed, a murder has taken place.
At the factory, Kogoro meets with Megure and Takagi, who inform him that the victim is the factory's manager, Hisashi Ishikura, who came to his closed facility for a check-up and apparently encountered a burglar in the process, which happened about an hour ago, the same time the Detective Boys had passed the place. Conan, however, notices immediately that Ishikura had been tied up with duct tape at or just before the time of his death, but the tape has been removed, and that the external entrance to his office, which opens to the building's back side, is in plain sight of a tobacco stand run by an old woman. Furthermore, Genta and Mitsuhiko find a photo on Ishikura's desk which depicts a number of people arranged for a group shot, among them the hit-and-runner they had chased.
At the Beika Police Station, the hit-and-runner, a man by the name of Kenichi Shishido and an employee of Ishikura's until a month ago, claims that after hitting Ayumi, he had passed by the factory by mere coincidence, and the police likewise dismiss him as a suspect, as committing a hit and run, not to mention his voluntary surrender to the police, seems atypical for a murderer's behavior. Further confounding is the tobacco saleslady's statement that nobody had ever entered from the rear, and the Detective Boy's testimony about having covered the front part, which apparently rules him out for the crime. Not convinced, and determined to find more evidence, Conan returns to the crime scene, with Mitsuhiko and Genta in tow. But then Conan stumbles upon several clues which shed a new light upon that case, and with the help of his Voice-Changing Bowtie he arranges a meeting with Kogoro, Megure, Takagi, and Shishido at the factory.
- Shishido's cars are modified Deep Maroon 1976 Toyota Corolla SR5 Hardtop Coupe. The license plate number is 新宿 33, な 33-96 (Shinjuju 33, Na 33-96).
- This is the first case that Ayumi has been hit by a car, if not the only case.
- This is another case where the Detective Boys catch a robber using terrific teamwork, and even have the press take their picture when Megure is handing them a certificate or award or something.
- This is the first, if not the only episode that the Detective Boys get their picture in the newspaper.
- By this episode, the Detective Boys have solved 50 cases already.
- This is the second case that Genta and Mitsuhiko will ride Conan's Turbo Engine Skateboard, along with Conan. The first case was Ayumi-chan Kidnapping Case.
- This is the first episode, if not the only episode, that Ayumi actually tells Conan that she loves him.
- Interesting Note: One of the times that Conan talked to the old lady, she was on the phone talking to a person named, 'Wateru," which happens to be Detective Wataru Takagi's first name, although it was probably a different Wateru, unless he was asking her questions on the phone about the case, but she would probably have addressed his as Detective Takagi.
- This is the first case that the culprit planned to use the Detective Boys for his alibi.
- The next episode preview of this episode actually shows a preview for episode 112, The Seven Mysteries of Teitan Elementary School Case, whereas the actual next episode is episode 110, Cooking Classroom Murder Case (Part 1).
- The names of the characters in the Funimation Dub are:
- Hisashi Ishikura - Henry Isaac
- Kenichi Shishido - Kenny Sheen
- Old Lady - Dora Mae
