Veronica Mars, “You Think You Know Somebody”

11 Aug
A quote-heavy roundup.
  • “Dude. Where is your car? …sorry.”
  • “Change has a walk of just walking up and punching me in the face.”
  • This show does a very good job of hiding the fact that Kristen Bell is five-foot-nothing.
  • “The best way to dull the pain of your best friend’s murder is to have your mother abandon you as soon as possible.”
  • Faking your own mother’s death certificate is a pretty good way to add four years of therapy to the 30 you already need, Veronica.
  • The Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights” in a show that originally aired 2004! Again, whoever did the music wins.
  • I love chase scenes that take place in suburbia.
  • I’ve long thought one mark of a good show is letting characters speak fluent Spanish and trusting the audience to follow subtitles. I’m glad to see VM is no different.
  • “I’ll be nice to your boyfriend if you be nice to my girlfriend.”
  • “A ball or your life. You do the math.” (beat) “IT’S A BALL.”
  • Neptune High is the world’s most poorly-lit high school.
  • Yeah, Bell and Enrico Colatoni are very capable of ramping up the emotions.
  • “Your being a good father isn’t something I can bitch to my girlfriends about over margaritas.”
  • “Of course, you’re Veronica Mars. You know everything.” And don’t you forget it! (Seriously, Veronica needs control.)
  • The twist in Troy’s story isn’t a particularly well-done one, and him going from all-around good guy to drug-dealing lech in a month isn’t all that believable. But I sure did hate him by the end of this episode.
  • It’s interesting that 2004 was a time in which people still needed CD players but had camera phones.

Comments always welcome. I think I’m going to start jamming two shows into one recap because it’s just more fun to be watching them than constantly thinking about what to write.
