Trent lends his vehicle to Nolan is about to drive it with Chelsea and warns him not to take his boat.

Nolan: What does that say about me that the second Trent said..."Don't take my boat out," it was guaranteed that I would.
Chelsea: It means you're a sociopath. Now, what does it say about me that I find that hot?

Why article placed before "second"?

He's refering to a particular second: the second Trent says don't.
