Mars Investigations. Veronica sits at her desk, a slip of paper with Jackson's parents' names next to her computer. She's interrupted by the entrance of Officer Fuckface and some other dude. Thanks to Demian for informing me that Officer Fuckface was in an episode of Charmed, in which Demian referred to him as "a cross between Greg Kinnear and an eel." I'd disagree with him, since I don't think Fuckface is that bad-looking at all, but I only just recovered after giggling hysterically for five minutes, and it feels like the moment has passed. Anyway, Veronica and Fuckface exchange a couple of barbs, but the other guy isn't so much for chitchat, and asks Veronica to get Keith. She goes into his office and announces that Fuckface is there, calling him "Deputy Lamb." Hee. Keith leans forward as if in anticipation of the punchline of a knock-knock joke. Which this kind of is. Veronica finishes, "...with the Mayor," and Keith beckons for her to show them in. Veronica makes a comment about Rod Serling, so does she think Keith would throw the Mayor out without at least seeing what he wants? Surely she can't be serious? ["She is serious! And don't call her Shirley! Ha ha ha -- ooh, I need to lie down." -- Geezer CB, who obviously is in desperate need of a nap] The Mayor shakes Keith's hand as he tells him it's been a long time, and Keith, slightly pointedly, says he knows. Keith and Fuckface do not shake hands. That's not going to cause a strain on a lot of pacemakers, I'd imagine. After a simian-themed jab at Fuckface, Veronica closes the door. She doesn't even try to hide the fact that she's listening in, despite being visible (though only to Keith) through the translucent glass. Hee. Once she gets an idea of what they're talking about, however, she goes to sit at her desk. Surprising. I can understand not wanting to hear the details of a teenaged girl's grisly murder, particularly if you're a teenaged girl yourself, but as a PI-in-training, Veronica would get over it, I'd have thought. At least with her father in his office with a man she's sure has three "6"es on the back of his head.
