When we return, Darla speechifies a bit about the evils of wearing fur, and then asks Veronica and Mac, "You want to pose together?" I think there are bigger things in store for Darla than PHAT, because her question shows that she's got quite the aptitude for marketing. Veronica and Mac exchange a look fraught with fanfic fodder, but before we can, um, explore that, a curtain behind Darla is pulled back, revealing the remaining PHAT members, laughing. Assy Hair says that they pull this trick on all the gung-ho recruits, and Darla tells Veronica and Mac that PHAT loves them. Bronson steps forward and asks (Veronica and, but not really) Mac if they'd like to get something to eat with them. Mac: "I'm good. I had some mints." Veronica's "TF?" look is priceless, but I have the feeling Mac's still struggling with not throwing up after that little prank. Not all of us were best friends with Lilly Kane, Veronica. Bronson, no stranger to uphill battles, asks Mac whether she has any plans for the weekend, and Veronica, happy to play the role of Parker for the moment, pipes up that they have the Around The World party, and invites Bronson. He accepts, and asks what country they are. Mac stares, and Veronica's like, "Hmm?" Hee.
The girl from before happily surveys a bunch of rooms, appreciatively noting how much effort went into decorating them. She then stops in front of Mac's and Parker's closed door, which still has the piece of masking tape with "Mac" written on it, along with a new piece of tape that reads, "Canada." Heh. Warily, the girl opens the door, and asks them what about the completely undecorated room is evocative of Canada. Veronica points to a postcard of a moose, does some lame "aboot"-ing, and then plays my least favorite song in the entire world, "One Week" by Barenaked Ladies. She and Mac do commit to doing a dorky dance to it, which lets my will to live hang on by a thread. Actually, if that car campaign a few years ago that used that song didn't kill me, maybe nothing ever will. But if that's the price of immortality, I'd have to say: not worth it. Anyway: the girl, with some amusement, closes the door, and Parker asks why they're doing this all of a sudden. Veronica takes great pleasure in explaining to a giddy Parker what happened with Bronson, and Mac, trying to deflect the attention, says that maybe Piz will show up. Parker sighs that she's so over Piz, and speculates that maybe he has a girlfriend back home. Veronica goes all shifty-eyed for a second, but Parker plows on that she's ready to be wooed. She should call Taylor Hicks. I hear he's not too busy. Veronica says she supports Parker, but doesn't want to join in the manhunt. Parker, though, as you'd expect, gives Veronica a pep talk about what a catch she is. Veronica: "Are you saying we ought to...mingle?" Hee. Parker agrees that, verily, they should get back in the saddle.
