Veronica goes to check on Meryl, who's beside herself with worry. She tells Veronica that Sully's Physics class was working with lasers, and babblingly wonders whether he could have made some technological discovery that forced him to go on the run from "sinister forces." It seems likely that she's overestimating his intelligence by not a little bit here, but to be fair, the only time we actually meet Sully is after he's had some head trauma. Anyway, Veronica -- with far more patience that I think I'd be able to muster -- explains Occam's Razor as the theory that advocates the idea that, when faced with multiple explanations for a phenomenon, "we should embrace the least complicated." I think William of Occam was just looking for a clever way to get people to shut up. Which in turn makes me wonder why he was never canonized. Anyway, Meryl sort of takes Veronica's point, but says she'd be happy if Sully's dumping her were all this was, because at least then she'd know he's okay. Veronica does not get to display her "Does Not Compute" face, though...
