Mingling, Canadian-style. People having a good time. People not having a good time, and by "people," I mean "Veronica." She's talking to a broody, dressed-in-black guy, who's whining about his ex-girlfriend or something. It's too bad about Bones, because a Boreanaz cameo would have been perfect here. Veronica spies Mac and can't get over to her fast enough. Mac says that she's bailing, though, and Veronica sadly realizes that Bronson didn't show. Veronica loudly announces that Canada is closing, citing "border-control issues." Hee. ["Canada's closing? It must be 8:30. I kid! It must be 6." -- Wing Chun] Mac smiles gratefully. Also, the horrible song is still playing, and even someone with my undying hatred of it has to admit that that's hilarious.
Later, Veronica is gamely talking to another guy. He asks her what she does for fun. Veronica: "I don't...really know." Hee. Veronica starts saying that her hobby is more like a job, but that it's fun sometimes. Unfortunately, she's already lost the jerky guy, who's staring at some other girl across the room. Veronica gets this look like "That's what I get for trying to talk to people." I know you don't want to hear many more words, Veronica, so I'll keep this short: indeed.
Mac's got headphones on and is reading when someone taps her on the shoulder. It's Parker, who's escorted Bronson in to see her. Mac's face lights up, and that's certainly both nice and overdue. Parker exits gracefully.
Later, Parker runs into Veronica, who reports the score: "Boys, zero. Me, zero." She declares her intention to turn in (I guess she's staying over), but Parker tells her that their room is off-limits at the moment, since Bronson showed up an hour earlier. Veronica cutely takes Parker's arm.
