Later, they are both seen in bed together, with Ian asking Anthony if they can cut that part out of the video. The next morning, they discover a plate of tacos on the counter, and Anthony accuses Ian of making them. Ian denies even knowing how to make tacos, and Anthony says that he'll just set up a few more cameras, causing Ian to point out that Anthony said that they couldn't afford more cameras. Anthony dodges the subject by complimenting the taste of the tacos. Every night, Anthony takes off one piece of clothing. The first night he is fully clothed, then he removes his shirt, then his pants, and finally his underwear. On the last night, Anthony ends up naked.
