In a class we'll soon learn is Mechanical Engineering, the teacher basically tells the students that the results of their "retest" put them at the top of the nation's brain transplant list. Wallace checks out his grade, and from the look on his face, it says, "You're Number One!"
Outside Mars Investigations, Veronica sees a sweet Porsche convertible parked on the street, making her smile. She pops in and starts babbling at Keith, even though you can clearly hear him talking when she first enters. She suggests they call the city and get the illegally-parked car clamped, "just for funsies." Keith warningly calls Veronica's name, but Veronica continues jawing, asking if the hundred-grand car came with a standard sense of entitlement. As she enters, Dean Ed snarks, "It did! And while we're on the subject of entitlement, maybe someday you can parlay your complimentary one-hundred-thousand-dollar college education into a lucrative career of your very own." I take back every mean thing I've ever said or thought about him. That RULED! Without pausing for breath, Dean Ed says that it's actually his wife's car, whom he introduces. Her photo didn't lie, as she's quite young and attractive. Keith boots Veronica out of this office, and then turns to Mrs. O'Dell: "You were about to tell me about your ex-husband." I know Veronica was kind of obnoxious regarding this point, but I have a feeling you might want to move the car before getting into the story.
Wallace goes up to the TA and asks about dropping the class, but is informed that the drop/add period ended the week before. I'd encourage anyone who thinks Wallace is too smart to have cheated the way it seems he did later to remember this moment. Because HELLO!
Back at Mars Investigations, Veronica analyzes the photo, and discovers that the Asian guy's shirt has a logo with the name "Camp Waterloo" underneath it. She Zowies it, gets the number, and calls. When the woman on the other end picks up, she corn-pones, "I tell you what, I'll be sugar and sunshine if you could help me!" This is one of those times where my previous life as an options trader makes me involuntarily yell, "SOLD!" Veronica spins a yarn about wanting to organize a camp reunion, and gets the woman to agree to give her everyone's contact information, although it won't happen overnight. Veronica gives the woman her email address -- "email@example.com" -- as Keith and his clients emerge from his office, and Mrs. O'Dell tells Keith that something unspecified "needs to happen soon." When they're gone, Keith informs Veronica that Dean Ed's stepson is dying, and they've hired Keith to find the stepson's deadbeat dad, as "the boy's dying wish is to meet his real father." Well, the spongier parts of him, anyway. Veronica looks stunned.
