Arc significance Edit
- Keith steals the interrogation tapes from the bus crash investigation.
- Dick and Cassidy reveal to Sheriff Lamb that their father knew "Curly" Moran as a mechanic. Dick also tells him that the bus smelled bad, which was why he got a limo.
- Gia Goodman tells Lamb that her father, Woody Goodman, told her not to ride the bus.
- Keith speculates to Veronica that the dead rat was there so that the 09ers wouldn't go back on the bus, thus the only casualties would be lower- and middle-class students. Veronica still thinks it was targeted to her.
- Veronica bugs the confessional at Father Patrick Fitzpatrick's church and shows the video to Weevil. It shows Thumper, one of the PCHers, taking drugs that Liam Fitzpatrick left behind.
- Weevil confronts Thumper, but Thumper has organized a coup against Weevil--Hector's brother works at the Neptune Grand and saw Weevil come out of Logan's room. The PCHers beat up Weevil and Thumper tells Hector to throw Weevil's motorcycle into the ocean.
- Veronica finds a picture of Terrence Cook and Ms. Dumas (the late journalism teacher) together.
- Lamb questions Terrence Cook in relation to the bus crash.
- It seems that Jackie is trying to make Wallace jealous by taking Rashard Rucker to a Hollywood club. Wallace follows the pair with Rashard's uncle. A security guard swaps the uncles cell phone for one of Veronica's pre-bugged cell.
- Wallace gives Veronica a high-five in thanks for helping him, Jackie then walks up and also gets a high-five for leading Rashard to the club.

- Veronica: Yes. Those boobs named Tracy James that went to Neptune and are now a Bruin cheerleader.
- 'Lamb': What did you mean by "it smelled"?
- Dick: Dude, it smelled like the ass of something that died.
- Lamb: And you can't say what it was?
- Dick: I'm not, like, a professional smellologist. It stank.

- When Cliff is talking to Wallace and Veronica in the Mars Investigations office, there is a white cross on the stained glass window to his right. In the next clip it is gone, and it moves with the camera, so it is likely a reflection off some piece of equipment.
- The body of the newspaper article about the hit-and-run accident in Chicago is in Latin. The production probably didn't want to spend the time creating a plausible article that would appear only very briefly and in small letters so they copied and pasted some Latin text instead.
