Later, Keith compliments Veronica's cooking by way of a bad Italian accent. At least my TV stayed on the stand for that one. Veronica starts to clear, but Keith tells her that Backup can handle the dishes. Well, with the game hens and all, I'm quite sure he can lick the plates clean. But despite the fact that they say the inside of a dog's mouth is cleaner than that of a human's, I still couldn't bring myself to eat off them afterward. Keith asks if Veronica would like a sneak peek at one of her Christmas presents, and after some mock reluctance, Veronica excitedly follows Keith into her bedroom. I hope if it's another waterbed, he spent some real money on it this time. Flooding is expensive.
No, it's Veronica's computer, which has a red ribbon tied around it. Keith, I think you got a little confused on the concept of regifting. But no, turns out he had the hard drive and processor replaced, and Mac promised him that it's all totally state-of-the-art. Good thing Mac likes Veronica, because I could see her putting in a few unpleasant surprises if she didn't. I wouldn't even attempt to debug a Mac-created virus. Veronica smiles and thanks Keith, and he suggests that she take it for a test drive. She wakes up the computer to see that there are two stories on the desktop about Carnell Myles, the guy who's claiming to be a pimp now. Apparently, he used to be a star athlete, but suffered a career-ending injury. Veronica watches Keith leave the room as VMVO asks, "Is there anyone in this town who doesn't know which trial I'm on?" Well, Lost was in repeats this week. (Oh, stop your hand-wringing. I gave up that show two episodes into this season.)
Anywhere But Here. Veronica asks if the "sports guys" can help her out: she thinks she's heard Myles's name before, but she's pretty sure he's not a musician or an actor. Cap Doofus takes that and runs, saying that Carnell was known as "Matrix" Myles, and was drafted by the Bengals. I guess that nickname foretold that things would go downhill for him. Cap Doofus goes on to tell us what we saw in the second article, which is that Myles blew out his knee the first day of training camp and never played again. N-NW asks Veronica how, then, he could have jumped gazelle-like over the fence. Veronica looks pleased with herself, and I guess between taking credit for a revelation she totally didn't have and using said revelation to tamper with a criminal trial, she has put in a pretty full morning's work.
