Quotes Edit

Veronica: Can I get anybody anything? Water? Coffee? [to Lamb] A banana?

Lamb: Is your daddy here, or is he busy peeking in people's windows?
Veronica: You stop dressing up like Little Bo Peep, he'll stop peeking.

Madison: What are you doing here?
Wallace: I came to celebrate your birth, but these two just wanna hook up.

Weevil: Well then, you leave the sheriff a note: he shouldn't expect Eli Navarro, Esquire's vote this year!

Veronica: [voiceover] Same old story. Girl uses boy, girl falls for boy, boy saves girl's dad's life, girl gets what she deserves.

Jackson Douglas: I hear you do detective stuff for people.
Veronica: I do favors for friends.
Jackson Douglas: I can pay.
Veronica: Sit down, friend.

Jackson Douglas: I don't care what people say about you, Veronica. You rock!
Veronica: Yes, I do. I also take cash.

Keith: [in a guitar store] Hello Cleveland!

Trivia Edit

  • When Mac comes across Lauren Sinclair in the library, Lauren says she is reading The Westing Game. This is a young adult novel by Ellen Raskin, originally published by Dutton in 1978. The plot revolves around a teenage girl who solves a complicated murder mystery involving a large group of possible suspects -- just as Veronica does over the course of the first season.
  • The title Silence of the Lamb is a reference to film The Silence of the Lambs starring Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Leo D'Amato.
  • When Cindy's mom brings Mac and Veronica some snacks, she remarks that she isn't sure if Veronica was "a normal eater or one of those freakball vegans, like Cindy." Veronica replies that she is "more normal than freakball." Kristen Bell, who plays Veronica Mars, is a vegan in real life.

Goofs Edit

  • When Veronica brings Leo the food to give to her dad, Leo's computer monitor shows a "Low Battery Warning" from the Mac OS X operating system. There is no laptop in the scene. Desktop computers don't get low battery warnings.
  • When the mother of the newest girl who is missing comes to make the complaint, Leo is the person at the front desk who takes the complaint. In the next scene, Keith interrupts Leo's band's practice to find Veronica. Leo is there, and has no idea that another girl is missing.
  • The employee at the music shop's guitar has sound coming out of it, and not the amplifier which must be at least ten feet away.
