...and back in the present, BSK drops a coffee cup, shaking Veronica out of the flashback. As they both are cleaning it up, Keith enters with the groceries. Veronica tells BSK that she's very grateful for the effort, but that she can't stay. Keith, a little sharply, asks why not, but Veronica covers smoothly. BSK smiles that she'll ask in advance next time. I really quite like, her, but seriously? Good idea, and not just for the general politeness factor. Veronica beats a retreat.
Chop shop. A motorcycle pulls in, and oh, my. Looks like Veronica got to ride Weevil's hog after all. Weevil greets "Angel," his uncle, who asks whether Weevil's found the Lexus he asked him about. Weevil skips that question. Hee. He asks about Icetwin's car, and with Weevil speaking English and Angel speaking Spanish, we learn that it's come and gone, and also, someone named "Mario" took the piñata for his daughter's birthday. When she grows up, she wants to be big and strong. Also, she thinks breasts are yucky. Weevil thanks his uncle.
Cut to Veronica and Weevil back at the bike. Weevil starts to tell her what his uncle said, but Veronica understood the whole conversation. I know it seems like Veronica's skillz are getting a little hard to believe here, but for one, we know she's a very good student, and two, she grew up in Southern California. Even the gringos can hold their own. Veronica asks whether Weevil knows where Mario lives, since they have to get that piñata. Weevil offers to buy Veronica a piñata. Veronica: "Will you buy me a piñata full of steroids?" Weevil looks like he'd consider it if he'd get a little action out of the deal.
Weevil and Veronica arrive as the kids are hitting the piñata. Veronica runs up and tells them to stop, but just then the piñata breaks, spilling candy all over. Veronica beats a retreat as the women on the scene start yapping to each other about her. We cut to commercial, though, before it gets good. Damn UPN's bilingual Standards and Practices Department.
Veronica pulls Luke into the girls' bathroom, and I'm tired of this joke, because I don't understand it. If she wants a really secure place to talk to people, why not try the library? Veronica informs Luke that the steroids weren't so much in the piñata, and that he'd better pay Walker-up off if he wants to retain a certain form of virginity for his wedding night. Which may have to take place in Canada. Luke thinks that Walker-up will hurt him if he goes to him with cash and no steroids, but Veronica says she'll worry about that, but that he'd better come up with eight grand, stat. She storms out of the bathroom. Luke does not follow, for the record. Veronica looks at the door to the administration office, and flashes back to Lianne hustling her out of school to go visit Veronica's Aunt Cheryl in Palm Springs. It's unclear whether they actually went, but back in the present, VMVO tells us that, three days later, Lianne was gone. VMVO goes on that she didn't pay the incident that much mind at the time, but now she thinks Lianne really was scared.
