    • (Veronica has just pulled apart Jackie and Logan who were dancing and flirting) Veronica: If you want to lock horns with me, duck and charge. But if you think I'm gonna let you break Wallace's heart for sport you have grossly underestimated my wrath. Jackie: God, Veronica. What is your problem? You really can't make up your mind, can you? Just pick one of them, God! How many guys here do you expect to want only you?!

    • Wallace: You okay, Veronica? Veronica: Compared to how your girlfriend's gonna be feeling, fan-friggin'-tastic. I hope she really got a kick out of tonight's little performance. Wallace: What are you talking about? She was worried for you. Veronica: If by 'worried,' you mean 'enjoying the fruits of her evil labor,' yeah. Wallace: What? What makes you think sh-- Veronica: The boob cream thing! She used to be the only person alive who knew about that! It's time to pick a side, Wallace. Wallace: No, Veronica! How about you doin' me a favor for once?

    • Veronica: Oh. Tell me more of this thing you call 'Homecoming.' Duncan: I haven't asked you yet. I'm such a dope. Of course I want you to go with me. You're my woman. Veronica: See? Was that so hard? Okay, I'll be needing an orchid wristlet, preferably in the fuchsia family, a Rolls Royce limo... and some Kane Software stationery. Duncan: Seriously? Stationery? What for? Veronica: You're here for your looks. Why don't you leave the heavy thinking to me, sugarpants? Now go make yourself pretty.

    • Mr. Wu: As you know, Homecoming season is upon us. Veronica: Much like the plague.

    • Logan: There's always Winter Carnival. (gasp) Veronica can be an Ice Princess! Jackie: Can we skate on her?

    Allusions (3)

    • Veronica: Can I guess? You got a sweet love hangover and you don't need no cure? Veronica is both quoting and paraphrasing from Diana Ross' 1976 top of the charts single 'Love Hangover', from her self-titled album Diana Ross. In addition to the title quoted, in the song Diana also sings about the "sweetest hangover" and she claims "I don't need no cure".

    • Veronica: (answers phone) Chesty LaRue. Hey, Duncan. I'm fine. I'm slathering up my boobs as we speak. Chesty LaRue is a reference to Seinfeld episode, "The Gum". Seinfeld character Elaine gains the nickname Chesty LaRue after losing a shirt button and revealing her breasts to two other characters.

    • Veronica: So, your biological dad is like some sort of Donnie Brasco, Renegade Cop? Donnie Brasco was the alias of undercover FBI agent, Joseph D. Pistone, who spent years trying to infiltrate a mafia family. Two books - Donnie Brasco, My Undercover Life in the Mafia and The Way of the Wiseguy - and the film Donnie Brasco detailed the experiences that Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco, had whilst undercover.
