Billy drops Catherine at Steve’s home after work. In the car he says that part of him had doubts they could make it work, after seeing Catherine in action, he knows he made the right choice.

Catherine is watching Culter and a woman make out through with a window with binoculars while Billy listens to the audio. Catherine says she's lost visual when the couple tumble onto the bed, Billy says luckily the audio's alive and well. Catherine says she doesn't think their client is going to need this much evidence of her husband's infidelity. She says a simple photo of the couple kissing would convince their client. Billy replies that they were paid to get the true and that's what they're going to do. 

Catherine asks how long the couple have been in the room, to which Billy replies, 3 very long hours. Catherine complains that her butt is numb, and Billy counters that he's drunk 4 bottles of coconut water. Catherine says she warned him, and suggests he could use one of the empty bottles if he really needs to go. Billy comments that he's a trained SEAL and he can hold it.
