Brainwashing The Brainless

Veronica breezes in and gives Keith and Backup 2.0 a cult-less version of her day. Backup 2.0: "Your lies sing out to me. And the smell of that stinky commune is a dead giveaway, too."

Cut to Veronica testing out the shower. As the hot-water foibles continue, VMVO tells us she can't stop thinking about the Jake Kane thing, but if he's her dad, "As God is my witness, I'll never take cold showers again!" Oh, come on, Veronica. We know Weevil's coming back at some point.

Veronica catches Casey at school and apologizes for being a "rampaging jackass" the night before. Casey: "Have you forgotten who you're talking to? I wrote the jackass Bible, the jackass Koran, the jackass Talmud!" Oh, Casey, there's no need for that. Everyone knows that jackassedness is a truly ecumenical phenomenon. Casey invites her back out. VMVO calls him "homely," which he certainly is not. Can a voice-over get glasses?

Cult central. Greg gives Veronica a shorter hug, and then points out that everyone's happy to see her again. The other people wave and say hi, and Veronica's clearly touched in spite of herself. Greg invites Veronica for a walk, and VMVO thinks this is where he tries to, as the theme song says, "Get it on, get it on." Might as well give in, Veronica. You can't argue with your own theme song. She surreptitiously starts a pocket tape recorder, and follows after him.

Greg tells Veronica that she's too guarded, and that she needs to open herself up and let other people inside. The multiple entendres aren't lost on Veronica, tree-hugging hippie-dippy fount of childlike wonder that she's, you know, not. She starts to reach for her stun gun, but Greg offers to show her "the ultimate cash crop," which is...

...poinsettias. Ha! I was pretty sure it was nothing nefarious, but I still thought that was funny. Greg tells Veronica that Casey's money helped fund the greenhouse, but when she brings up the idea of contributing money herself, he tells her that's not necessary. And this is where Veronica figures out that some people might actually be nice enough just to want other people to be happy. Hey, give her a break for forgetting that. It's been a rough year.

Outside, Veronica laughs it up with the other commune members. I laugh too, because montages are my friend. Greg interrupts to tell everyone that someone's there to inspect the water for lead. Unsurprisingly, it's Keith. Some people on the forums opined that it was unlikely that none of these people would fail to recognize Keith, a figure of considerable notoriety in the town. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but perhaps they were thrown by the fact that it looks like someone whacked him in the face with a baseball bat. Maybe that's the price he had to pay to get into the league. But seriously, now he's got a big cut on his nose to complement the one under his eye. I don't think the nose cut was there before, but the camera angles made it hard to tell. And is this league sponsored by the WWF? Upon seeing her father, VMVO states, "I'm dead." Well, if that were true, there wouldn't be a show. Good thing, too, because otherwise you'd be right.
