Veronica cocks her star-armed hand as she says, "Detention? Me? I think not, Mr. Clemmons." She hits the paper man-silhouette-target in the hand. Either she's not as vicious as I would be, or her aim isn't all that great. Also, turns out the stars are rubber, for practice, but Norris tells her next time he'll let her try a real one. VMVO: "Am I crazy, or is Bomb Boy flirting with me?" I don't think you're crazy, and what's more, your nickname for Norris is pretty much the same as mine, if you change an "O" to a "U." Norris gets close as he says if he keeps his grades up, his dad will let him tour Japan that summer. In which he will no doubt be big. He invites her to a Kurosawa retrospective that weekend. Noting Veronica's hesitation, he says it can just be a "friends thing." Aw, but I'm starting to see why she dated Duncan. He was the only guy who met both qualifications: "Into her" and "straight."
Outside in the car, VMVO tells us that she's going to try to access Norris's family's wireless system. She succeeds, and gives a Mr. Burns-esque "Eeexcellent." Hee. Veronica calls Mac, and they exchange meaningless, possibly lesbianic banter until Veronica sees Bad Hair Guy nearby. He waves to her, and Veronica's silent enough for Mac to say, "Earth to Mars!" Bad Hair Guy goes into a nearby house. I'm sad to report that it's not a salon.
Veronica, in her room, leaves a message for Norris asking him to call her before the next day. There are what look like middle-school graduation pictures on her desk, one of them Norris's. Also, as some people noticed in the forums, the panda sharpener is still there. Hee. It would be funny if she forced Wiedman to listen to some really bad music. She could finally find a use for Brian (Austin) Green's albums! She checks the mwa-ha-ha website and sees the count is down to just over eighteen hours.
School. Veronica sees Norris in the parking lot, who says he got her message too late to call her back. She starts to explain about Ben, but the agent (hee hee) in question appears with a SWAT team and arrests Norris. Ben's face looks much more beat up than it did initially, which is realistic. Also, it looks like Haaron has taught Logan well. Veronica tells Ben that he's got the wrong guy, but when Ben searches Norris's trunk, he finds fertilizer and a large rifle with telescopic sights. Norris says the stuff isn't his as he gets taken away. Noting that the stuff in Norris's trunk looks very similar to the stuff Veronica saw Ben loading into his soccer-mom car earlier, Veronica asks if Ben set Norris up. Ben doesn't answer, so Veronica snaps a few photos of the scene as Norris gets manhandled into a van. Veronica, he may not be finding this experience completely devoid of enjoyment, but that doesn't mean he wants to document it.
