Veronica is making a CD recording of the blackmailing conversation when the phone rings. She answers, "Chesty LaRue." Heh. It's Duncan, and she finds out that Corny is DJing between the band's sets at the dance the next night. Wow, so she's going to bring Cook down just to get back at Jackie? I mean, the circumstances are slightly mitigating in that she'd also be bringing down Lamb, but...well, if the road to hell is paved with good intentions, it looks like Veronica's gunning for the Autobahn version. She labels the CD "Homecoming Request," and then someone knocks on her door. It's Wallace, who asks if she's okay. Veronica bites out that she's fine compared to how Jackie's going to be. Wallace asks what she means, since Jackie was worried for her. Ooh, that was a misstep, Jackie. Setting Veronica up is one thing, but not admitting it to Wallace makes it look like you think it's a huge deal. Veronica half-yells that Jackie was the only one who knew about the boob cream, and it's time for Wallace to pick a side. Wallace half-yells in turn that he's sure Jackie didn't do what Veronica thinks she did, but even if he's wrong, he wants her to let it go. Veronica says she can't do that. Wallace: "Well, why does it have to be about you all the time? Jackie's right about one thing: it's your world; I just live in it." So Wallace decided to pick the "I Have A Spine" side. I commend him on his choice. Wallace reiterates that whatever Veronica's planning, she shouldn't do it, and adds that in case she hasn't been paying attention, Wallace just learned that his whole life has been a lie. He tells her that she hasn't given him any time or sympathy, and leaves. Veronica looks chastened. I still love Veronica, but even those we love can frustrate us sometimes, so you'll allow me this comment to her: looks gooooooooood on you, hon.
Jackie's phone rings, and she looks thrilled that it's Wallace. Given the upcoming revelation that this is now the day of the dance, I'm thinking Wallace hasn't talked to her since he left Veronica's house, and Jackie's clued in that he's pissed. Wallace asks whether Jackie set Veronica up, and she now admits it, but says it was supposed to be a punking. Heh -- for those of you who don't know, Kristen Bell was (or will be, depending on when I get this recap in) on the season premiere of Punk'd, so this is a little in-joke. Jackie goes all breathy (which: shut up) and says she just wanted to take Veronica down a peg for tattling on her for hanging out with "Random Dude" and being Wallace's confidante and "supposably being this legendary badass." Oh, honey, and you did such a nice job with the setup. But while you might have outdone Ashton Kutcher with your prank, even though he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, he would never say "supposably." Wallace snaps that Jackie has no idea what Veronica's been through, and Jackie urgently says that the psychic came up with the Lilly stuff on her own. I might even believe Jackie here, but if she's telling the truth, the question becomes whether Jackie told the psychic Veronica's name. If yes, there's no issue -- the psychic could easily have figured out or known who Veronica was on her own. If Jackie didn't tell her is where things could get a little interesting, but that's neither here nor there at the moment. Jackie asks if she can make her actions up to Wallace at the dance, but Wallace says he's only going because of the election -- he's not going with Jackie. I guess the potential Homecoming Queens are all pretty hot, then. But I guess we knew that already from Veronica's failure to make the cut. Jackie grabs a prescription bottle out of her nightstand.
