Mato goes back to the car to fetch up her bags. While she's gone, the others check out their adjoining rooms until Futaba suddenly tells them to stop - she's spotted a cockroach climbing a wall. The girls all panic, then go to get Makoto, hoping he'll help since he's a "reliable male", but once he sees the cockroach he shuts himself in the bathroom and seals the bottom of the door with a newspaper. Next they lean out of the window to shout to Mato for help, but as soon as she hears there's a cockroach she gets into her car and drives away.
