Sometime later, a deputy is telling the Fennels that there's nothing he can do -- they're just going to have to get a lawyer and file an eviction notice. Coco snits that Psycho Aidan Quinn won't be out for sixty days even in the best-case scenario. Coincidentally, that's how long this subplot feels already. Wake me up when something happens.
Wallace arrives at the Mars house, and asks if he can crash there, since his house is getting exterminated. Veronica senses something's not right, although Wallace doesn't confess the truth. She asks Keith if he went to see Coco. Keith gives a very diplomatic version of what happened, but at some urging from Veronica, he goes out, presumably to try again. Wallace confesses to Veronica that his mom thinks he's staying at his imaginary friend "Norman"'s. The fact that his mother accepted this without insisting on meeting this Norman or talking to his parents suggests to me that Coco is only too aware of the "imaginary" status of Wallace's friend. Which in turn clearly underscores exactly what she thinks of Veronica. Tough town, Veronica. Tough town. Veronica doesn't get it at first, but Wallace tells her that the "old biddies at the Kane Software rumor mill are filling her head with a lot of garbage." Veronica's typically bitterly amused, and changes the subject to microwave popcorn. Which is never a non sequitur. VMVO: "Does it ever bother me? What people say? Okay, maybe once in a while. Depends who's listening." Despite the unnecessary voice-over, nice scene. It feels weird to have to emphasize that.
Mars Investigations. Keith learns that Psycho Aidan Quinn has a police record. I didn't know "impersonating a shitty actor" was a crime. It goes a long way to explain prison overcrowding, though.
Psycho Aidan Quinn arrives home. Going to his refrigerator (in his MASSIVE kitchen, in his apartment that looks just as nice as the Fennels'), he opens it, and the light reveals that Keith is sitting in the dark drinking something. Keith informs him that he has to have his stuff packed up and out of there by 6 AM, which is six hours hence. PAQ: "Not."
Alarm, 6 AM. PAQ turns it off, and is scared out of his wits to find Keith sitting next to his bed. Hey, PAQ, at least it wasn't Adam Goldberg. That would send me straight into therapy. I think Keith set the alarm, which is cool. Keith tells PAQ that it's real nice that he took advantage of a single mom, and accuses PAQ of putting on a big act with acting all crazy. PAQ is all catatonic here, which may seem weird, but I usually see 6 AM from the other side, so I'm not really one to talk. Keith, however, seems at one point like he's going to get into bed with PAQ, and considering he's talking about extreme craziness at the time, it really looks like he might go through with it. Not to mention that he's already addressed PAQ as "big boy." But instead, he barks like a dog and lets out a primal scream and shakes PAQ out of bed. "See, that was crazy." No, Keith, Giving Whoopi Goldberg yet another show is crazy. That was merely acting. With a capital "A." Anyway, Keith tries again with the "you're leaving, now" schtick, and his audience is more receptive this time around, which I guess just means that PAQ is a huge pussy.
