Keith returns to Mars Investigations and tells Veronica that Bloom seemed "squirrely" about his son. He asks Veronica how her "sorority-speak" is. Veronica: "Like, awesome!" Hee. Cut to Veronica calling Ben Bloom's roommate. She claims to have met Ben at a "Beach Blanket Bingo mixer." Hee hee. Keith motions for her to move it along, and she tells the roommate that she has to talk to Ben about "something involving crabs." Keith's face falls. Dude, you started it, with the ants in your pants. Anyway, Veronica finds out that the Mexico story was a fabrication, but Ben left behind a hotel confirmation number for Vegas. Keith makes a call to try to track him down, after which he notes that Veronica's been working overtime on this case. He massages her shoulder as he asks if Yolanda is a friend. He stands and walks behind the chair to double-barrel the effort. A flashback valiantly appears in an attempt to stop my skin from crawling. The flashback is a few seconds too late.
At school, Yolanda catches Veronica, who's clearly uncomfortable. She asks Veronica to talk to Lilly for her, and claims she didn't do anything. Veronica tells her she saw the kiss. Yolanda doesn't deny it, but says it just happened, and it wasn't a big thing, but apparently Logan is saying that Yolanda threw herself at him, and she'd never do that. Veronica should know at least that that part is true, as she was there up until about fifteen seconds before the kiss happened. Yolanda asks Veronica to make Lilly understand. Veronica starts, "I don't know, sometimes she's really " Well, the word "fabulous" does spring to mind. Same with "scary." And finally, "dead." Lilly honks her horn from a ways away, and yells to Veronica that they have to get going for Fleet Week. Yolanda desperately tells Veronica that Logan kissed her, and it didn't go anywhere. "I don't want to blow it here." Lilly honks again. Veronica looks at Lilly, looks back, steels herself, and says, "You should have known better." Veronica walks toward the car with an "I am really dirty now" look on her face as VMVO conveys equal feelings of dirtiness. Well, at least the timing of Fleet Week worked out conveniently.
