Veronica finds Wallace, who's having a blast, and tells him it's no big deal having Icetwin there. Unlike her statement earlier, she seems to mean it this time. Dean comes into the scene a half-second too late, which Veronica covers with an eyebrow-raise, and says that it's a fun party. "In high school, parties are just guys getting drunk and scamming on chicks, but here, you have intellectual conversations!" That's pretty much the exact opposite of the speech my host gave me when he took me to my first college party. Of course, he was a six-foot-six football player who could have killed Dean with even a half-hearted sneeze, so it's not surprising their outlooks were a little different. Dean asks Veronica what she and the doofus talked about. Veronica: "Jane Austen. But he dissed Pride And Prejudice, so I had to throw a beer on him." Hee. I have no direct proof of this, but I think this is a shout-out to all the posters who were incensed with Jackie for doing just what Veronica said the doofus did. Actually, it's more "poking fun at people for seizing on a relatively innocuous event to excoriate a character they were predisposed to hate." But "shout-out" sounds better and is easier to type. Veronica and Wallace tell Dean that they're going to leave and, in the process of doing so, see Icetwin and Shawkat heading off while holding each other around the waist and smooching. Veronica smiles, so I guess she's at least somewhat okay with Icetwin now, not that I blame her. On the way out, Veronica sees the doofus scoring another girl. She walks past, but then thinks better of it and stuns the guy, which might get her in trouble in the real world, but on TV kind of rocks and was totally deserved, although the bored way she did it was a little disquieting. Making it even more awesome is the fact that the other girl totally laughs, and that the guy gets his third beer all over him as he falls. That last was 90\% gravity, though.
