The Ninja Turtles wake up in the morning for practice, and look for Splinter, who seems to be gone. They find a video, left by Splinter. The turtles view the tape, and it features Splinter informing the turtles that he has left the lair, and will no longer be their master. He tells them that he's taught them everything he can and that they are now full-fledged ninjas. The turtles go their separate ways, with each of them taking up various jobs. Michaelangelo takes up a favorite pastime of his, and becomes a TV cook, Raphael loses his dignity by performing at birthday parties, Donatello gets a job at a mechanical repair service shop, and Leonardo becomes a fitness instructor.
