And just like that, Mac is in the room, typing away at the computer and saying she hasn't sneaked out of her house at 3 AM in a while: "Nice to know I still have the chops." Is she referring to the chops needed to hack into a computer, or to climb down the trellis without being heard? Because they're both incredibly useful skills. Mac looks a lot more grown-up here, with jet-black hair and a more mature-looking face, although the ends of her hair are still dyed blue. Mac gets into the hard drive and copies Meg's email onto a JumpDrive. Props to Demian for pointing out that, in his words, "The Foul JumpDrive Of Wicked Temptation was green." Nice. Mac asks if it goes to Duncan, and he fakes a measure of indecision as he says he guesses so, and Veronica looks a little concerned by the seeming understanding between them. Nice work from Majorino and Dunn there. We need more Mac, and you know I'm not talking about product placement here.
Morning. Duncan's brushing his teeth as Veronica happily walks by him, already dressed. Man, she's really Pollyanna around him. She sees the JumpDrive lying on the table, and VMVO can't believe he left it out: "Do you leave heroin out when Iggy Pop spends the night?" Hee. Veronica takes out her computer and plugs the JumpDrive in, and I don't hear water running, so I'm not sure why she thinks Duncan isn't going to appear at any moment and catch her in the act. I'd like to hear her talk her way out of it with some technobabble, though. It would give Duncan the chance to use his favorite "Who farted?" expression. Veronica's interrupted by a call from Julie, who's stunned to hear that all Col(l)in did was talk about how great she is. When you put it like that, it does seem a little hard to believe. Julie realizes that she's being a "jealous freak," and if anyone wants to debate the point with me, he can have the "con" position. Veronica says she'll call Julie back, and after some indecision, pulls the JumpDrive out without examining Meg's files. Kristen Bell's "I don't even know who I am any more" look here is awesome.
Keith emerges from Alicia's house to find his car with a boot on each wheel. Hee. Although I wonder if this means that anyone parking in a handicapped zone is going to find himself in luck today. Keith, not appreciating the hilarity of the overkill, calls Lamb and tells him he might have a boot for him too. Lamb informs Keith that he doesn't appreciate being sent in to arrest Morgan, because his real name is Nathan Woods, a big-time decorated detective: "Did you think I wouldn't check up on the guy, Keith? His record is one phone call away. How stupid do you think I am?" Rather than answer that, Keith looks back in consternation at Alicia's house, realizing that he bought a story not completely based in truth. And it's really too bad, because at any other time, Lamb giving him an opportunity to tell him how stupid he is would have beaten the ham and cheese as his number-one fantasy. Also, I'm not sure how Keith got the record of Woods's alias without discovering his real identity, but I'm sure it's possible.
