When Jackie Cook asks for her help, Veronica aids her but it turns out to all be a prank to humiliate her on television. This sets into motion a chain of events leading to Wallace leaving town with his father.
Arc significance Edit
- Veronica bugs Sheriff Lamb's office and finds him blackmailing Terrence Cook, who has a lot of gambling debt.
- Veronica finds a voice mail message left by a student on the bus moments before the crash and confirms, after her father hears it, that there's a sound before the bus hits the rail that could be an explosion.
- Keith opts not to go public with the message, giving it to Lamb instead.
- "Press Record Then Play" - Lake Holiday
- "No Sleep Tonight" - The Faders
- "Whatever It Takes" - The Faders
- Keith: Ahhh, look, Veronica, your father's campaign is riding on a gravy train with biscuit wheels. Woody's numbers guys just called to say I've got a twelve-point lead. I don't need to roll around in the mud with Lamb.
- Veronica: In that case, it sounds like you don't need a photographer from the Neptune Navigator who knows how to shoot your good side?
- Keith: I got nothing but good sides, baby.
- Veronica: It's weird that you live here. I don't want you going all Howard Hughes-y on me.
- Duncan: I am not a shut-in. These nails? Neatly trimmed. Though, now that you mention it, I have started bottling my own urine.
- Veronica: Ew.
- Wallace: How about you doing me a favor for once? ... Why does it have to be about you all the time? Jackie's right about one thing: it's your world, I just live in it. I'm asking you for a favor, Veronica. Let it go. Don't do whatever it is you're gonna do! You been paying any attention lately? I just learned my whole life is a lie. My dad isn't my dad. I've always been a shoulder you could lean on. You've given me no time, no sympathy...nothing.
