Elsewhere, Weevil is tending to his adorable little niece, who looks about six. Weevil's clean-shaven, has started growing out his hair, and has lost his jewelry, by the way, which probably are reactions to his ejection from the PCH gang. Of course, an even bigger reaction would be to get his gang tattoos removed, but that would...you know, hurt. But the hair coming in looks really good on him. Maybe he and Logan have some sort of zero-sum hair/looks pact going. Anyway, Weevil buys his niece fifty balloons, one of which Thumper knocks as he walks by. He then says to Weevil, "I thought that was your head." Thumper wasn't kidding when he said he didn't make good speeches.
Elsewhere, Logan watches Dick successfully win a prize and crow about it. Logan: "Shooting in a clown's mouth. Your future's bright, Dick." And if a certain person has a day job as a clown, we can call this comment "Fun Yet Prescient, Part II." Dick's face falls, though, when he sees Beaver and Mac holding hands. He asks Logan, "Why is The Beav all snuggly with that chick from Ghost World?" To please me, obviously. Next question?
Veronica's using a screwdriver to struggle with one of the machines when Jackie appears behind her and ruefully declares, "This school genuinely sucks." Boy, talk about knowing your target audience. Veronica agrees, sees Ms. Hauser collecting money from Madison, and starts to get her own money together, but is still working on it when Ms. Hauser arrives, forcing her to wait. While she does, J.B. appears and asks Ms. Hauser for the keys to her classroom so that he can get the staple gun to fix one of the signs. Veronica hands over her money just as the ostensible new Triton pledges run by in their yearly, um, altogether. Ms. Hauser fronts that she's exasperated, as if she wouldn't take a piece of that faster than you can say "Terry McMillan." Dick shows appreciation for the spectacle, which will be ironic before the top of the hour. Ms. Hauser hands the box of money to Veronica for safekeeping, and Veronica stows it in a cabinet with a sliding door. Ms. Hauser goes over and clutches her pearls at Principal Clemmons as Wallace comes up with Jane, his new "special lady friend," and when Wallace, Keith, and Dick all use that expression, either it's a wink to the audience, or more people bastardize quotes from The Big Lebowski than I thought. Ms. Hauser returns for the money box, but when Veronica slides open the cabinet door, it's gone. She reaches in to discover another sliding door in the back of the cabinet, and then stands and breaks the news that the money's gone. Clemmons appears, and Ms. Hauser snits that, "in less than three minutes, Veronica Mars has lost all the senior trip money." Veronica: "Set a record!" I'll just let you imagine whether it's Clemmons or Ms. Hauser who looks icier as we head into the credits.
