Neptune High parking lot. Veronica catches Casey, who greets her with a "'Sup, Veronica." Hee. Also, he looks like he's been working out. I approve. Veronica asks about Shelley's party, and he starts to blow her off, but she brings up the specter of his dead rich grandmother. And I can't even type the words "dead grandmother" without thinking of Ed Rooney in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Les jeux sont faits, indeed. Casey softens, saying he's not hanging out with the cult anymore, and asks what she needs. Veronica inquires again about the party, and we're in Casey's flashback. Significantly, in Casey's version, Veronica's more out of it, and Dick's the one singing "I Touch Myself" and initiating the kiss. The divergent points of view are in keeping with the stated intended Rashomon-esque feel, although it probably goes without saying that Casey is a more reliable source than Dick. We see Madison again with her horrified "lips that touch trash will never touch mine" look, which seems like self-hatred if I ever saw it. Dick then sort of tosses Veronica over to Casey, who soberly declines: "I like mine to be able to stand on their own power." I'd make a comment...
