  • A good season finale, but a bad series finale

  • Yeah Weevil gets to be in an episode! I just wish they would have him doing something besides getting framed or being a janitor. Good Episode though! I really hope Veronica Mars gets renewed for another season or I'm not watching CW again!

  • Quotes (17)

    • Veronica: Who says it was you? Weevil: A couple of college kids pulled me out of a lineup. Veronica: Why do you think they're fingering you? Weevil: Because I'm easy. Easy like Sunday morning. Ex-con and all. Veronica: Except they'd have to know you were an ex-con. Have you been going around campus sharing the story of your personal journey? Weevil: Only in your criminology class when you asked me to. Veronica: Oh, yeah, right. Oops.

    • Dick: I know you and me haven't always been, like, best buds, but do you want to know why? Mac: Not really. Dick: 'Cause you were both so smart, you and Beav. And... and I could tell, you know, that you thought I was an idiot... So I figured my best bet was to... you know how a best defense is a good offense? So, I thought... The way I treated you and Beav was totally uncool, and I'm totally sorry for all those things I said. Mac: Yeah. Okay. Accepted. Dick: It's cool. You're so cool. I get it now what my brother saw in you.

    • Veronica: If we're assuming someone's framing you, they had only twenty-four hours-- Weevil: Whoa, if we're assuming? If we're not assuming, then I guess we're assuming that I did it, which means that I hired you to get to the bottom of my own crime? That's a pretty dumb assumption, don't you think? Veronica: Touchy! I'll rephrase. Whoever framed you had twenty-four hours to get your fingerprints on the ringer ID machine. We need to retrace your steps. Try and remember everything you touched the day before you got busted. Weevil: A day in the life of Weevil's hands, huh? Let's see. I woke up, I hopped in the shower-- Veronica: What say we fast-forward to your day on campus?

    • Mac: What's with the food police? Veronica: She has the right to remain famished.

    • Dick: That's Veronica. Logan: Yeah. I'm aware of that. Dick: And that's that Piz dude. (the video shows Veronica and Piz having sex) Yeah, here's the money part. Not what I'd call bodacious, but firm, supple, pleasing to the eye.

    Trivia (1)

    • When Veronica approaches Jaleesa Jones in the food court, Jaleesa's standing at the counter reading a book, which she's holding with both hands. When she answers Veronica's question, she puts the book down and puts her left hand on the cash register. The camera angle changes to show Veronica, and we can see that Jaleesa is still holding the book, which she then puts down for a second time. The book in question is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, published in 1957.
