Man, Lisa Rinna only gets a regular "guest star" mention? You'd think her lips alone would rate a "Special Appearance By" credit. I'm not really sure I'd want to see their IMDb entry, though, if you take my meaning.
Veronica and Wallace pedeconference about a Padres fantasy camp. Veronica thinks it would be the perfect Christmas present for Keith, but Wallace notes that it costs three grand. Well, Veronica, you could look into sending him to a more affordable option. Toronto's cold this time of year, though. Veronica good-naturedly complains a bit about being poor, and this is much more in line with how I view her general attitude than that whole artificial "Money, money, got to have it" characterization from "Drinking The Kool-Aid." Her reverie is interrupted by Duncan, who storms up to Weevil and demands his laptop, eventually grabbing him. I'm not an expert on 09er etiquette, but I imagine that trying to rough up your best friend's boyfriend is a no-no. Anyway, Weevil's goons pull Duncan off. Duncan snarls that he didn't take Weevil's money, but Weevil points out that someone did. In an awfully-dubbed line, Duncan reiterates that it wasn't him. I'll admit that the amount I'm bugged by that is disproportionate, but if you don't have usable footage of a particular moment, consider whether the line could be scrapped entirely rather than getting Teddy Dunn in on his day off to deliver a bad line reading, okay? I say that with love. Anyway, Weevil tells his goons to let Duncan go, and the Diesels make themselves scarce.
Veronica approaches a frustrated Duncan and gets the backstory. The part where the four young boys were closing their eyes while the words "Think unsexy thoughts" ran repeatedly through their brains is omitted. Veronica dismissively says something about lying down with dogs and getting fleas, and when Duncan tells her he didn't invite Weevil, she snits that that's not who she was talking about. I was surprised at first that she would be so snotty to Duncan, although possibly there's an explanation in that episode that got pulled for the holidays. Then it occurred to me that she might be referring to Logan. And then I was surprised that Veronica would think that Logan would have an insect problem, but I suddenly remembered Paris Hilton. Ironic that that was the end result of so much thinking. Duncan tells Veronica that she might want to care, since he's kept a journal on his laptop for three years, and at one time, she was "kind of a feature." Veronica: "A feature with a cleverly disguised pseudonym?" Hee. Duncan informs her that he was "prolific," and walks off. Veronica's face indicates that her time with Duncan was prolific in a slightly different sense of the word. VMVO tells us that she's got to get that computer back. Seriously. That thing would be hotter than Molly Ringwald's undies in Sixteen Candles.
