Mars Investigations. Keith is on the phone with some business to find out if they do pumpkin carving. He gets off the phone with "I already have a gingerbread house, but thank you." Heh. Although if there's anyone on this show who should be living in a gingerbread house, it's Mommie Sneerest. Veronica appears, and Keith asks her to run by the Echolls house to give Lynn some papers to sign. Veronica agrees, perhaps hoping that she'll catch Logan in a compromising position. Careful, Veronica. I wouldn't want you to walk in on Logan licking Weevil's "Lilly" tattoo. We'd have to skip traditional therapy and go straight to the electric shocks, you know?
Chez Faberge. Veronica finds Logan in the pool house playing some shoot-'em-up computer game. She observes that the place looks like a tornado hit it. I'd make a Wizard of Oz joke, but I have a feeling Logan's going to take care of that for me. And while we're on the subject, it occurs to me that if Veronica wants Logan to treat her better, all she has to do is change her name to "Dorothy." Veronica makes a standard comment about testosterone, and now that he knows she's there, Logan replies: "This is why I suggested attack dogs. But no, my mother wanted an alpaca." Looking at her taste in décor, I can't say that I'm surprised.
Veronica asks about the poker game, and Logan gets irritated and makes snide remarks about her sleuthing. Hey, I think that's the first time I used a form of "sleuth" in one of these recaps! One would think I didn't once own the entire Hardy Boys collection! And by all means, keep thinking that! Veronica, looking like this is exactly what she expected, starts to go, but Logan calls her back, and suggests that she talk to Connor. Veronica clarifies, "Connor Larkin?" Her tone suggests that in some long-dead language, "Larkin" means "guy who just thinking about makes me want to do yoga to limber up for an all-night bone-fest." That language was apparently too sexy to endure. Picking up on her tone, Logan says, "He's a mortal, believe me. They just draw his abs on." Hee. Logan exposits that Connor is currently doing a movie for Haaron, and then indicates that Connor might have stolen the money even though he's loaded. He gives said indication with a subtle gesture that is widely known by the very technical name of "sniffy sniffy." He adds that Connor has something against Logan, and Dohring's delivery is genius there. It's like he honestly can't understand why this rich movie star might hate him. He's so...bewildered. Hee.
