Wallace goes to see his coach and tells him he's got this class that's kicking his ass, so he's going to take the rest of the semester off and return at midseason. Because I'm sure majoring in mechanical engineering will be a cakewalk once he gets that first-semester-freshman-year class out of the way. Seriously, I don't understand why Wallace has to commit to this class -- there's got to be a way for him to get the necessary credits for this major later on. Maybe the writers decided that having anyone be undeclared was just too big a risk after what happened to poor Judd Apatow. Anyway, the coach tells him he won't lose his scholarship (wow, he's getting break after break here), but he now doesn't have a chance of making starter this year. Wallace unhappily acknowledges that.
Veronica goes to see Tina ("Callas" is her surname), who hands her a card with an overly polite (I assume she's keeping up appearances, here) "There you are, miss." Veronica gives her a little conspiratorial smile, which I take to be her way of thanking Tina without drawing attention to her. She starts to head for the elevator, but sees Keith nearby. She goes up to talk to him, and is dismayed to quickly learn that he's getting drinks for him and a nearby Harmony. She gives Keith a quick and pointed lecture, but he tells her not to worry. Veronica: "I worry." She managed to make a very clear point there without being moralistic or judgmental. Liking her this week, happily.
Cut to Veronica knocking on the door to Room 906, which is opened by...Mindy O'Dell. Veronica quickly makes her apologies; even with all the bizarre experiences she's had in her short life, the idea that Dean Ed's young wife would have a reason to trump up a plagiarism charge against her is too much to wrap her head around. However, as she approaches the elevator, it opens up and Professor Landry appears carrying a bottle of booze. Geez, Landry, using your looks and position as a middle-aged faculty member to nail Mindy? Looks like maybe you've lifted a few of your ideas yourself. Landry warily greets Veronica, who tells him she must have gotten off on the wrong floor. Once she gets into the elevator, though, she calls, "Rory Finch?" The look on Landry's face suggests that Veronica's grades are going to change, but whether it's for the better or worse is a mystery to me. By the way, just to get it on the page, a lot of people remember how Chip got points last year for supposedly sleeping with the Dean's wife. I thought at the time he was just blowing smoke and wasn't to be taken seriously, especially since Veronica hasn't made mention of it since. But with this revelation...well, I thought I'd at least mention it.
