At night, Mindy and Dave dress opulently to "go fishing" for criminals in order to "hone...[their] street-fighting skills", using themselves as bait; they quickly attract four muggers, and Mindy times Dave while he incapacitates them in under three minutes. Later, they practice swinging between buildings and crashing through windows at an abandoned warehouse, while also working on opening lines for Dave to use while breaking into criminals' hideouts.
During the day, Dave instructs Mindy on what clothes to buy and what television shows and movies to watch, and Mindy realizes that blending in with other teenagers is just another "undercover operation," resolving to learn how "to be a Mean Girl or a Queen Bee."
At home, Mindy overhears her mother and stepfather discussing attempts by the mob to infiltrate the police department, but Marcus denies that anything at work has changed; privately, he admits that he knows about Mindy's superhero alter-ego, and orders her to retire for her mother's sake. Mindy promises, but Marcus and her mother promptly pass out, having been drugged with a dose of Rophynol that Mindy slipped into their cocoa. She then calls Dave and instructs him to be ready in twenty minutes.
At the Lizewski residence, Dave takes out the trash while his father tells Lucille that he regrets not spending as much time with his son as he used to. In an alley, Kick-Ass meets up with Hit-Girl, and the two set out in her car toward Trotski's in Sheepshead Bay where they interrupt a meeting of Russian and Italian mobsters. Kick-Ass crashes through the window and pummels several gangsters, breaking his hand before Hit-Girl opens fire from beneath a table with an M16 rifle, killing a dozen mobsters. The two then flee the restaurant, heading to the hospital.
At a convenience store, Red Mist, Hood 1 and Hood 2 prepare to commit the first super-crime. Inside, Red Mist confirms that the surveillance cameras are operating, and points a massive gun at the store owner, asking if he's "ready to become famous."
