Cut to "Tina," a pretty blonde working the front desk. Veronica notes that this is Logan's "pal," but does so pretty good-naturedly. Tina finishes with some random and comes over to Logan and Veronica. Logan introduces the girls, and then asks if a "Rory Finch" might have been registered there. Tina looks up the name, and tells them that he did spend one night there a week earlier, on top of a few other one-night stays over the last couple of months. However, Finch only left a P.O. Box for an address, and paid in cash. Veronica asks Tina is she would call her if Finch were to check back in, and Tina agrees with an "Any friend of Logan's." Veronica makes a small show of saying that she's Logan's girlfriend, and everyone laughs as Tina tries to reconcile that revelation with all those times Weevil and Logan didn't realize they were being caught on the security camera.
Bowling! Veronica finds Piz, and they talk shirts for a moment until Logan sidles up next to Veronica. Piz stammers for a second, so Logan smoothly cuts in, "Logan. Her boyfriend. We met." Heh. Poor Piz has to tell them that Wallace bailed, and can't even come up with an excuse about the fictional promised "gang," so it's looking Un!Comfortable! as awkward can be, until Parker's voice rings out -- she's decided to join them. Re-introductions are made, with Piz hilariously if understandably over-enthusiastically shaking Parker's hand. Parker asks where everyone is, causing Logan and Veronica, with perfect comic timing, to look at Piz. Hee. Piz takes it for a moment, but changes the subject to shoes. Logan takes Veronica's size, and then puts an arm around Piz. As they walk off-screen, he asks, "So, bowling! Is this something you do a lot? You and the gang?" Hee. He's so onto poor Beaverton. And while Piz may rightly be feeling a little overmatched here, he should take solace in the fact that Logan's gotten a lot nicer. Parker's bummed that Veronica invited her to go out for the first time since the rape "on some cheesy double-date setup with that Piz guy!" Well, hon, I'm not saying you should be ready or anything, but as setups go, you could do a lot worse. I mean, how does paintball with Rider Strong or experimental poetry with Horshack sound? Veronica swears that it's not a setup, so Parker concedes to stay, but promises, "This is not fun."
Cut to Parker whooping it up after nailing a strike. Hee. She crows that that makes "two-thirds of a turkey, bitches!" (A "turkey" in bowling is three consecutive strikes.) Parker high-fives Logan, who shakes out his hand afterward. Hee, again. Piz and Veronica, for their parts, look dejected, even more so after Parker keeps up with the trash-talk. By the way, I assume Veronica suggested these teams to make Parker more comfortable. Logan asks if anyone wants refreshments. Piz: "Ten martinis." Hee. As Piz takes his turn, Parker apologizes for her earlier grumpiness, and says that it feels good to be out in the world. Just then, Piz gets a seven-ten split, and Parker razzes him some more. Piz looks like he wants to throw the ball at her, and he might as well -- he wouldn't be hurting his chances of picking up that spare any. Also, Piz is left-handed, should that ever be relevant. As Piz steps up for his second throw, Parker asks Veronica what his story is. Veronica defensively says that she has a boyfriend, and it's interesting to wonder whether she's now clear that Piz is into her, or if she's reacting to the fact that some part of her likes Piz. Parker, anyway, doesn't care -- she thinks Piz is cute, and asks Veronica to find out what Piz thinks of her. That seems a little immature, but we all saw what happened when Gia tried the more direct approach, so maybe a little buffering is for the best. Veronica, for her part, looks stunned, which will make more sense later.
