Cut to Keith explaining to the RA that his "heat-seeking scanners" came across some "high-intensity discharge lamps." Keith, you're discharging something at high intensity right now, but it isn't light. He goes on that it looks like "someone's cultivating a little Mary J." Hee. Portly Dork opens the door, and Keith bustles in with the dog, asking if there are any drugs, and using the most cursory of searches to cover his planting of what's presumably a listening device. Portly Dork asks if he doesn't need a warrant. Keith: "What do I need a warrant for? There's nothing here!" He leaves, and the dorks regard each other with puzzlement. And dorkiness.
School. Veronica listens to the dorks. It would have been funny to hear them discuss her. If horrifying as well. Sometime later, they leave their room, setting the alarm in the process. Veronica plays back the sounds of the different numbers from the code and matches them to the tones in her cell phone to figure out the combination. There's been conflicting discussion in the forums about whether this would be possible or not. I'm leaning toward bullshit, especially considering we've already had one Alias shout-out. It seems like maybe they're just going for a theme.
Much later, Veronica's phone rings, and she smilingly answers it. Her face falls, however, when she realizes that she's late. She's late. For a very important date. That might never happen, since her boyfriend might get his brains blown out if he doesn't play his cards right. Floor it, Veronica.
Living room of Getting To Know You. Keith tells Icetwin that Veronica hasn't told Keith anything about him. There's a little fake laughing, with the usual undercurrent of I'll Rip Out Your Large Intestine Through Your Throat If You Mistreat My Daughter. So far, so normal. Keith asks Icetwin what he and Veronica will be doing after the dance, and Icetwin tries to toe the line when he says that Veronica told him she'd have to go home right away. Keith asks if they're going to remain at the dance the whole time, and Icetwin tries to smile his way to the finish line as he says yes. Keith: "So you won't mind then that I canceled your reservation at the Four Seasons?" The smile didn't quite make it. Also, Keith, you may not speak the language of geek, so let me give you a tip: Here's where you stand up and yell, "OWNAGE!" Anyway, Veronica arrives home just as Icetwin's eyes are about to bug out past the point of no return. She asks, "Who's ready for mini-golf?" Keith genially grabs Icetwin's shoulder as Icetwin tries valiantly to recover. Veronica's expression indicates that she reads the situation perfectly. You might want to switch to an activity without clubs, my dear.
