The next scene goes to Danny who has found out that the business deal didn't go so well and that he needs another meeting with the company. Julian spots Danny and apologizes for his rude behavior at the bar and begins to tell Danny that he accidentally killed his wife and that he can never talk about a dying family member without trying to change the subject.

At the bullfight Danny tells Julian what a great time he's having and tries to find out what Julian does for a living. Julian tries to explaining that he is a hit man but Danny wont believe him so Julian picks an old man and says he will kill him. They both leave there seats and go to the bathrooms, Julian tells Danny that the old guy will have to use the bathrooms sooner or later.

Six months later and Julian has been everywhere doing hit man jobs and screwing ladies. He has recently failed a job and his contact, Mr. Randy, is trying to convince him not to take a vacation because after a hit man takes time off they lose their touch. Julian agrees to take a few more missions and goes to a scene where he is trying to snipe a man, just before he takes the shot he sees himself and cannot take the shot. Mr. Randy is informed about the failure and apparently Mr. Stick who is the boss wants Julian dead.
It is back in Denver where Danny is with Bean and it is Christmas time late at night, it turns out that Danny's business deal did go well in Mexico, and he's a success. They hear a knock at the door, and it's Julian. They invite him in after an awkward introduction. Bean and Danny are talking about how there is a hit man in there living room and different emotions erupt. Bean starts talking to Julian who Danny has told her about, and asks to see Julian's gun.

Julian does some dancing with Bean and they all go to bed.
Julian wakes up Danny and they go into the car outside to talk. Julian tells Danny about his problem that Mr. Stick wants him dead for failing so many missions and he needs help from Danny on a mission that if he passes it he'll be set free from Mr. Stick's hit list. Danny refuses but Julian refers to the night at the hotel when he did Danny a favor. Danny agrees to help Julian and the next day they are off to some horse races in a different city. Danny sets up a distraction and Julian gets to a vantage point where he can assassinate the target. Danny gets the attention of a body guard by the target, but Julian has a nervous breakdown and can't take the shot. Danny finds Julian and tells him that he will do anything to help him kill the target so Danny decides to walk Julian through the assignation.
A few hours later on the flight back to Denver, Julian explains that he couldn't do the mission without Danny and that the target was actually Mr. Stick himself and that he can be free to do whatever he wants. Danny says it was a good way to pay him back for what he did at the hotel that night. The camera goes to the night in New Mexico where Julian is at Danny's hotel door drunk, Danny lets him in and tells Julian to kill the leader of the team of markets that are also trying to get the deal with the company. Julian convinces Danny that he is a success and that he can get the deal without killing the other teams leader, and that he would regret getting the deal that way.
The last scene is at the graveyard where Danny and Bean are at there son's tombstone. Julian is watching them and leaves them a ticket to Greece where he will retire to because he has saved up so much money from his hit man missions.
