Weevil paces in the crazy dark (as usual) classroom -- I have no idea how anybody's vision manages to survive after a day in Neptune, Land of Shadows -- waiting for his exam to be graded. The teacher, who looks like Judith Ivey in profile, finishes and hands him his "B" grade with a "congratulations, Eli." Eli "hell-yeah"s and is so happy, and it's so, so sad.
Fink and Finkier page through Lamb's Big Book of Felons and finally find the page with Weevil's mug shot. "It was this guy." Lamb smiles, because all he needed was a reason. He's not able to revel too long, though, as Keith approaches with some paperwork that says Lucky was "in a padded cell at a VA hospital" the day of the bus crash. That's why he wasn't at work. Once again, bang-up job, Neptune school board! Lamb looks about ready to pass a kidney stone, as he calls Sacks over and tells Keith he'll go pick Woody up. Sacks appears with even more news: Haaron's verdict is in.
Neptune High hallway. Wallace swaggers up to Veronica -- who is last-minute cramming -- and crows about being done with his last final: "I'm outta here." "And you decided to celebrate by torturing me?" Veronica asks good-naturedly. Western Civ still looms momentarily. Wallace's smile fades, and he meaningfully says he's off to clean out his locker. Forever. Veronica's still got ancient Babylon on the brain, though, so she doesn't pick up the hint. "You better enjoy this," Wallace says, "because this is as nostalgic as I get." Veronica lifts her head out of her book like she just now realizes what this whole "end of high school" thing really means. Wallace: "I just wanted to say, it was worth getting taped to a flagpole. I'm gonna miss you." Aw! Wallace! Veronica smiles sadly and looks like she's choosing between hugs or humor. "And my stupid-ass face?" she asks. Humor, then. Wallace says that the plans to pick up his "lady" and do some celebrating and wishes Veronica luck. As he walks down the hallway, he turns and calls out to her that this conversation never happened. "Sure it did," she replies. And it may have gotten her thinking, too.
Cut to another classroom shrouded in darkness. As the teacher passes out the exams, Veronica can see Wallace at his locker through the open doorway. Strummy la la music plays, as she watches her best friend prepare to clear his way out of her life for the second time in a year. The teacher closes the door, and Wallace is gone. Veronica looks contemplative for a split second, before her Sidekick starts buzzing. It's a message from Keith telling her the verdict is in. VMVO reads us the message in case anyone was still wiping tears from their eyes after the last scene. Veronica's face reads something like "of course it fucking would be right now," and she gives the exam a valiant five-second try before dropping her pen and hopping out the door. It's nice how it's the combination of her coming to her senses about Wallace and her insatiable urge to see assholes get what's coming to them that will ultimately keep Veronica in Neptune.
