Piz waits on a bench, and nervously fixes his hair and experiments with different sitting poses. Hee. He's so into Veronica already. Speaking of whom, she appears and hands Piz a bag of clothes, as she says that a friend of hers (Duncan, we can assume) can't use them anymore: "You look about the same size." I don't really think so -- Piz isn't skin and bones or anything, but Duncan looked like a carbohydrate-loving tank. Piz thanks Veronica, and she gives him more good news: his guitar popped up on Craigslist, and the seller lives just off campus.
Later, Veronica and Piz get out of her car in front of some house. Piz has put on a sleeveless shirt, which is the first really interesting wardrobe change so far, in my opinion. They knock, and some dude -- after confirming that they're there about the guitar -- lets them in. Inside, the guy tells Piz and Veronica that the girl he bought the guitar from sold it for $500, but that you can't find one for under five grand, although he's willing to sell it for four. He opens the case, and it's Piz's guitar, which he proves by correctly predicting that there are two picks from a store in Portland in the case. Veronica asks the seller to describe the girl who sold the guitar, and is told, "Blonde, thin, pretty smokin' bod?" Piz taps Veronica with a knowing dorky smile, and she looks at him, all, "The hard work's not DONE yet, genius." Heh.
Veronica heads back to Junior Bimbo's room as VMVO tells us that the current possessor, "Donald Fagin," offered to sell Piz his guitar back for the five hundred he paid for it. These little wink-to-the-audience references are fun enough for the most part, but I think enough people are familiar with the name Fagin that it spoils the A-plot. But my perspective might be skewed, given that my class performed Oliver! in fifth grade, and I narrowly got beaten out for the role of none other than Fagin. So perhaps I'm not the most representative sample. ["No, you're right. 'Fagin' has entered the lexicon; it's like if Beaver's real name had been Judas Casablancas." -- Wing Chun] Anyway, VMVO adds that a better plan would be to make the thief pay for the guitar. She knocks, and when Junior Bimbo opens the door, Veronica snaps her picture.
