That line was so perfect.
A snarkastic (thank you, K) Ronnie tells Jackie to basically jack off where someone actually cares. It's rather endearing that Jackie ended up being Wallace's current flavor, but worse things could happen.
Worse things like Ronnie being asked to solve a 'suicide'. Like feeling bad that kids from the bus died or that Meg was in a coma or that she, in fact, was alive thanks to a Lilly apparition weighed down on V's shoulders.
At this point, I was feeling rather empathetic to our heroine as her current beau just waltzes in and out of the scenes like nothing had happened. I don't think Duncan was being apathetic. I think he just knows that "crap" happens. He's just thankful that V wasn't part of that crap group.
But before venturing on to other Ronnie related incidents, I want to talk about Papa Mars, Keith.
How cool was it that this man, someone who has gotten some fame after writing a book and solving a case goes back to running for public office? Should we thank Deputy Asshole for lighting Keith's fire? Should we thank slimy Woody Guthrie for offering him the job?
Altough I am inclined to agree (with K) that Woody may be the sleeper killer/troublemaker of Season 2, akin to Aaron Echolls, I am witholding judgement. I think Kendall has more motives to get Neptune all riled up, not just because she's shacking up with the LoVe shack but because she is an opportunistic beeyotch. I won't be surprised if she has a connection to the Woody, too.
Anywhoo, where was I? Oh yeah, Ronnie interviewing K. Smith. LOVE IT! Kevin as Dean is so funny, since he played Dante (Clerks) to the T. From the running commentary to the excited gestures, he might as well have called his performance "Clerk 2: Dante the Fatty". It's true though that Kev is on a diet, and had lost 30 pounds. Silent Bob may be Sexy Bob the next time we see him around.
From her interview with the mini-mart clerk, Ronnie realizes that life's too short to just mope around. So what does she do? She shacks up with Duncan for some "cuddle time". This time, no GHB. Just straight up romancing.
Ronnie, I think, wasn't prepared to meet the emotional demands of being physical with someone she loves. Sneaking out, she is met by none other than her former flame, Logan.
And boy, did sparks fly.
Ronnie getting her shoes on in the hallway wasn't the best place to confront her once nemesis-boyfriend. Despite his cutting words, Ronnie still cares for the punk. She's saddened by the fact that he doesn't seem to reciprocate the same feelings.
More melodrama follows.
Of course, our lil Nancy Drew figured out that the bus driver wasn't attempting to commit suicide. He was leaving his family for the girl he fell in love with.
It's rather unfortunate, though, that Ronnie's name had somehow gotten to the bus driver's palm and into Sheriff Lamb's short list of suspects.
I think this is going to be what would get Keith back into office.
I hope V gets cleared.
I hope Logan gets to realize what a bitch Mrs. Casablancas is after all this and get things straight with V.
I wish it already was Wednesday and I could watch the next installment to this show.
Tune in next week for another round in the life of Veronica Mars.
