Wallace rushes onto the basketball court, and the coach, after a brief lecture about how he shouldn't stay out so late partying, tells him to suit up.
Veronica awkwardly enters Piz's office at the radio station as VMVO complains that in the eighth grade, she had to ask some guy if he liked her friend, and the guy and the friend never spoke again after that. I can't imagine how Veronica could have botched that errand quite that badly, which just gives me another reason to mourn the dearth of flashbacks this season. Piz gets off the phone, and Veronica thanks him for the bowling the other night. Piz asks if Logan had a good time, and sorry, Piz, but the "be nice to the boyfriend" strategy isn't going to work here. Unless you're willing to settle for a much taller, feyer prize. Anyway, Veronica uses the point that everyone had a good time to segue into talking about Parker, but she doesn't get far before she has to pause. "I'm sorry -- I'm having a traumatic stress flashback to the sixth grade." Hee. Veronica bravely plows through her unpleasant memories and tells Piz that Parker thought he was cool and cute, but Piz, nicely enough, says that Parker's not his type. Veronica's bummed to hear he has a type. Piz: "Yeah. And it's not her." As long as we're being subtle, Piz, why not invite Veronica to the noir festival?
Mech E. Wallace gets a B+ on a practice quiz, but he's not thrilled, as his face shows that he knows something's got to give.
Parker busts into the library and happily "informs" Veronica that Piz has a radio show, and suggests that they drop by, because it'll be fun. Veronica takes a moment to note, "Everybody's always saying that." Hee. I love the unlikely friendship of Veronica and Parker, though -- it exposes a side of Veronica that's fun and playful without trying to be cool. More, please.
Piz is wrapping up his show when he sees Veronica. I have to say that I hate that device where two people are clearly arriving somewhere together, but they come into a third character's view at separate times so we can see his individual reaction to each of them. This is the second time they've done that with Piz (and in addition to being contrived and annoying, this one is totally redundant -- we know he likes Veronica already). Cut it out. Anyway, of course Piz looks genuinely happy to see Veronica, and then all fake and uncomfortable when he sees Parker. He also, when he signed off, referred to himself as "The Piz," which really bugs. Because if you don't take the chance to go all out and adapt the "Nobody Beats The Wiz" theme song for your own personal use when such an opportunity is presented to you, what's the point of living?
