As she reaches two guys that are unremarkable except for the Dean-and-Sam difference in their height, VMVO goes on that survival will be especially easy if her competition is "Brady and Omar, who made it through the academy based solely on nepotism and language ability, respectively." It may seem like I'm paying undue attention to detail given the fact that this series didn't make it, but the recent news about Cupid makes it pretty clear that You Just Never Know. VMVO adds that they didn't do their homework, as "the boss" is big on punctuality. Veronica reaches a small auditorium, only to find it about three-quarters full. She's put out that "Callie Farmer" is already there, which seems clumsy, given that (a) you'd think most FBI agents would be go-getters, and (b) the boss enters just as Veronica's shapely butt hits her seat, so it's not like she knows Callie was ass-kissingly early or anything. Bossman informs everyone that there are some newbies from Quantico with them, and then mildly calls out the just-arriving Brady and Omar for being late. I heard sterner reprimands in fifth grade, so I'm not sure this is anything to get worked up about. Bossman then tells the non-newbs to use the fresh meat for legwork on the "Book Rate Bombers." He shows a slide of their prime suspect, who hasn't been seen in ten days, and adds that he won't shave until he's behind bars. It's a good thing I'm not an agent, then, because that declaration would have had the exact opposite motivation for me than was intended. Who wouldn't want to see if the man's beard could be made to hit the floor? Bossman then asks "Mr. Carter" about some other suspect, and we see that Mr. Carter is played by Adam Kaufman, who is just popping up all over the place lately. Having cut my teeth on him in the roles of Parker and Gayoda, it's still very odd for me to see his hair under control. On the other hand, we'll soon see that his character is a total douche, so at least there's some degree of familiarity. (Wow, did you know he's having a kid with Poppy Montgomery? I had no idea those two were an item.) Anyway, Carter tells Bossman that they're getting no evidence on the phone, and most of his business is done in a booth at his strip club, so what they need is someone on the inside posing as a waitress or, preferably, an exotic dancer. Bossman asks for volunteers, which elicits a fake-sneeze-covered "Newbies!" While there's no doubt that the guy who did that is a total Chipster, I'm grateful to him, because it allowed me to replay the awesome Jesse Bradford speech about the "loser sneeze" from Bring It On in my mind. One day I won't rush off and watch that movie the moment something reminds me of it, but that day is not today. Excuse me for two hours.
