...then we're playing cards. There's a stack of bills on the table, and Logan and Weevil have two cards each. I assume they're playing Hold 'Em, and they just haven't flopped yet. Weevil's got a pair of aces, so he's looking pretty fine in more than his usual one way. He tells Logan, "You're almost as bad an actor as your father." Logan: "You know that you don't need a diploma to steal hubcaps, right?" And we have the first nominees in the "Give 'Em A Spin-off" category. That should dovetail nicely with the launch of the "LOGO" channel. Incidentally, if you look behind Logan, there's a poster for Romeo & Juliet, with the "rose by any other name" quote, and a big red rose in the middle. Rose...Lilly...forbidden love...talk amongst yourselves. I even gave you a topic. Weevil tells Logan that he promised his grandmother he'd finish school, and he doesn't break his promises. Logan: "And I mean this: awwww." Hee. Mr. X. enters, and breaks up the game. Maybe they weren't playing Hold 'Em after all, because if they were and Weevil lost his pair of bullets, I would think Mr. X would be "X" as in "ex-parrot." Mr. X tells them detention isn't a party. Logan: "That would explain the absence of balloon animals." Hee, again. Mr. X is unamused, and gives them a full week of detention with no cards. Dude, how are they going to have a dick-measuring contest now? Unless they take that expression literally, which...oh, there you all are. Glad I finally caught up.
Veronica returns home to hear some kind of trouble, some kind of fight. Luka is berating her boyfriend for telling her mother about the baby and where she is. They fight about hormones and "Joanna," and as Luka storms back into the house, we see that her boyfriend is a bearded Adam Kaufman, whom you might remember as Parker from Buffy The Vampire Slayer or as Gayoda from Dawson's Creek. Considering that Scylla and Charybdis of posterity, I don't blame him for trying to rehabilitate his image. Sad to say it's not going to happen here. I will note, though, that he looks a lot better here than he did in either of those two roles. His hair's under control, and he's grown a full beard that actually quite flatters him. We also see that he's a smoker, which is an anvilicious message for this show that he's EVIL! And, given the show's penchant for things not being what they seem, I should have dismissed this character right here as irrelevant based on that. He notices Veronica, and then leaves in a huff. And a puff.
