English class. The teacher, who has not been knocked up and is therefore the same one we've seen all year, is talking about The Brothers Karamazov. She asks a question of a jet-black-haired Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who diffidently is drawing something as he says he didn't read it. "I thought maybe I'd wait for the mini-series." I don't think you'll be cast in it, if only because "mini" doesn't seem to be an applicable term for you these days. Seriously, the last thing I saw him in was the episode of Smallville in which he played a kid who could split himself in two, and it looks like he's been eating both guys ever since. For more on the subject of the "weight wall," read this. JTT gives the teacher some pretentious death-speak, and shares a smile with the guy next to him, who's wearing biker gloves? I don't know. Veronica, in turn, shares a "whaaaaatever" look with some guy next to her. However, her part in that could be because of the dude's hair, which George McFly would have rejected as too messily geeky.
Chez Mars. Veronica gets a couple sodas (one of them "Skist") out of the refrigerator. She looks tense, and we soon see why, as the camera reveals that Keith and Alicia are sitting on the couch watching an old movie. Veronica reenters her room and gives a grossed-out Wallace the update that Keith has his arm around Alicia. Wallace asks if there's any gropage, and Veronica snarks that earlier, she saw Keith cutting a hole in the bottom of his popcorn bucket. That's a Diner reference, and if you haven't seen it, you should. But let's just say the popcorn in question isn't for vegetarians, and leave it at that. ["I don't know how they knew I'd be editing this recap and not Wing Chun, but Diner is my very favorite movie in the world, so: shout-out!" -- You know what Sars's problem is? She doesn't chew her food] Veronica tells Wallace that the relationship can't last long, as her mom will be coming home soon. Oh, Veronica. For someone with such developed observational skills, that is one big blind spot you're sporting. Wallace takes umbrage at the idea that his mom is just a "placeholder." Veronica doesn't see what the problem is, as Wallace wasn't too keen on the whole "my dad/your mom" thing either," but Wallace tells her how it is when he notes that, although he wasn't too keen on his mom dating his best friend's dad, she hasn't found a decent guy since their dad died (and that answers that question), and if she's just going to get burned, he needs to tell her. Veronica asks him to wait a few weeks. Wallace: "I gotta say, Veronica. I'm getting a little tired of doing you favors." Hey, maybe he and Weevil can start their own club! Both their names even start with "W"!
