...and we cut to some girl at graduation doing the same. Many of the students are in cap and gown, but Veronica is in her dress from before as she marches up to her friends and complains about having the wrong outfit. The friends in question are Logan, Duncan, and Dick. I guess one of the lessons here is that Veronica's unconscious feels that Dick shouldn't have failed physics. Veronica, understandably mispronouncing his last name, asks whether they know Wallace, and Duncan calls him an "awesome baller" and says that he works at the Sac-n-Pac. Dick takes the awesome ball and runs with it, saying Wallace got held up at work, and the robber forced him into the walk-in cooler. Duncan adds that Wallace lost three fingers to frostbite as a result. Veronica buys this hook, line, and sinker, until the boys crack up, and Logan tells her: "Sweetie, I love you, but you have to be the most gullible girl I've ever met." Given that he kisses her right after, Duncan probably should have called her "squee-tie." Anyway, Duncan tells Veronica that he sees Wallace, and then so do we. Wallace's wearing glasses, so apparently one of the effects of Veronica's friendship is curing nearsightedness. Would someone please introduce me to her? Anyway, they make some small talk, with Veronica opining that high school was a blast, and Wallace oozing "Not so much" subtext. Well, he can't have been that awesome a baller in this reality. Even the biggest geek is going to find some popularity if he's the basketball team's leading scorer. Veronica turns her attention elsewhere and sees Lilly standing in front of her memorial fountain. Veronica doesn't seem to find anything wrong with that, which just means her learning curve after Lilly's death was even steeper than I thought. Veronica rushes up and breathlessly asks about Vassar, so hopefully this means I won't have to keep explaining how Lilly was a year older than the rest of the kids. I dare to dream sometimes. Veronica also asks about the new guy Lilly's seeing, and Lilly says that they're not together, because she hooked up with his (female) ex. "I mean, you'd think that guys would dig that, right?" Yes, but only if they can at least watch. And I'm surprised at you, Lilly, missing your chance to perform in front of an audience. At Veronica's "You chowed box?" face, Lilly tells her that in college, lesbian hookups are expected. I wonder if this is a subtle way to lure more straight males into watching Season 3. Lilly then notes the inscription on the fountain, causing Veronica's face to fall mightily, and then (in possibly my favorite line of the episode as far as the delivery goes) is like, "Do you smell bacon?" Bye, Amanda. Remind me to catch up on Big Love when I have more than two seconds to spare.
