Can't believe it. They're right on time. Let's get these boys to their party.
Agent Carlin discovers the evidence of blasting caps washed ashore at 1245; he returns the call to the victim at 1318 (1:18pm). He seems to do quite a lot in those 33 minutes: investigates the surface and underside of the Crescent City Bridge, visits the police department to notify them that it is a crime scene, gets a cup of coffee there (by inquiring the location of the coffee pot), drives back to the ATF office, and attempts to reach his partner.
The opening credits rush in, framed by a box, and then rush out again.
