Cut to Keith, who hears the echo of the shot, but is too dehydrated to care. He does get interested, however, in the town he spies only a little ways off. Of course, things look closer in the desert.
Veronica enters the sorority house in a conservative blazer and skirt combo, only to find one of the blondes from earlier greeting her dressed, as VMVO puts it, as a "Pussycat Doll." There's a full-on party in progress, with boys, dancing, and booze, the last of which is indicated by Keri appearing with a shot glass and offering Veronica a "Panty Dropper." VMVO's all, "Jackpot!" Eh. Talk to me when they break out the Red Devils.
Veronica takes the shot from Keri, but stalls until Keri leads her by the hand into the room. Veronica, when Keri's back is turned, surreptitiously dumps the shot into a nearby cup as Keri asks what she thinks. VMVO: "What do I think? I think I'd sooner drink Mark McGrath's bathwater than anything here." Ew. Heh. Hehew. Keri tells a shirtless guy to get Veronica another shot, and then exposits that the "Pi Sigs" are their brother fraternity, and that they bartend at the girls' rush parties. Keri then expresses her hope that Veronica doesn't have a boyfriend, since there's a "newbie legacy" and "lost Wilson brother" behind her. It's Dick, of course; he turns around and sarcastically and shirtlessly notes that Veronica looks just like this girl he knows from high school. Veronica gives him the fakest of enthusiastic exclamations and hugs, as if the girls didn't already think she fit in at this place. Also, that was hilarious. Keri explains that Veronica's rushing, and that they love her. Dick: "Somewhere in a parallel universe, Bizarro Dick is being a total killjoy." I guess we're going to have to wait a bit longer for the Dick's Journey Into Emotional Maturity to begin. Which is fine by me. Veronica amusingly grabs Dick's cheeks and shakes them to shut him up as she tells him that he's so cute. Heh. Keri leads Veronica over to the drinks table...
...where Marjorie joins them and tells Veronica that this is why they take the girls' purses -- so that they can leave invitations in the dorm rooms for the girls they want at the secret party, although with off-campus-living Veronica, they had to get creative. NVMVO notes that they had access to Parker's room. Marjorie leads Veronica to another guy -- Chip, now President of the Pi Sigs. Chip takes one look at Veronica and flatly tells Marjorie that Veronica accused him of rape last year. Veronica laughs unconvincingly, and tells him, for Marjorie's benefit, to learn to take a joke, but he just scoffs and walks away. Given the rate of awkward introductions that Veronica's being subjected to here, I'm starting to wonder if Keith is undercover at this place. Or, even worse, not.
