Quotes Edit

Wallace: This mission better involve me seducing the head cheerleader.
Veronica: I need you to poke around and see if you can get me a fake ID. If you must seduce the head cheerleader in order to accomplish your mission, so be it.
Wallace: No sweat. How do I do that?
Veronica: Play on her insecurity.

Veronica: Hi, Dad. Their case is fuzzy and circumstantial.
Keith: [to Cliff McCormack] You know the odd thing? Those were also her first words.

Veronica: This doesn't make sense. Someone had to open that locker. How else could they have gotten the money? How else could they have gotten Wallace's name?
Wallace: Veronica, I'm still here, you know?

Veronica: [about to take photos of the Tritons] Say repressed homosexuality!
