Out in the living room, Wallace tells his candlelit mom that they need to get going, as it's getting late. Alicia agrees, despite the fact that the movie isn't over. Perhaps they need to collect Wallace's brother from whatever non-speaking-rates location they dumped him in this week. Keith is wearing jeans, which I think is a first. Hey, I noticed something wardrobe-related! Do I get a cookie?
Outside, Alicia, picking up on Wallace's mood, asks if he and Veronica had a fight. He says no, and that he's just looking out for Alicia. She tells him that she's a big girl, and what's more, he needs to see how happy she is. For the first time, she feels at home in Neptune, and Keith's a good man. "Let me have this, please." Wallace looks skeptical. He's a tough sell. Alicia, you had me at "Remember my name."
School. Veronica enters a classroom to find Mac in a heated debate with the unfortunately-haired guy from Veronica's English class. They're flirting under the guise of arguing about computer technology. Hey, there has to be a way that guys with hair that bad can score some action. Besides alcohol, I mean. Veronica interrupts to ask Mac if she could take a look at her computer, as she can't get it to boot up. The worst nightmare of every recapper. Mac says sure, but she has to take it with her, as she's in a rush. Veronica says everything important is password-protected. Well, considering that her murder investigation files were on her desktop, I'm confused as to how that works, but then again, I didn't find myself getting the vapors when Mac was doing her geek-speak with Bad Hair Guy. Mac leaves, and BHG asks Veronica for a moment. He tells Veronica that "Norris and that new kid Ben" were throwing tennis balls at stray cats. "The tennis balls were exploding." How very.
