"Wallace, if you do this for me, we'll be best friends forever. Come on! Don't you want us to be BFF?"
Veronica Mars first met Wallace Fennel when he was duct-taped naked to the Neptune High School flagpole with the word "snich" painted on his chest. Sexy. We're sure Wallace will remember his first day at Neptune High for a long, long time. Veronica won him over and became his BFF when she was the only one with enough heart to cut him down from that flagpole.
Wallace lives with his mom and little brother. If Veronica's dad and his mom keep making sweet music together, he and Veronica will be bunk bed buddies soon. He may no longer be an office aide at Neptune High and Veronica's lackey—may even have developed a few mad detective skills of his own—but Wallace still makes himself indispensable to Veronica Mars, and she still comes through for him. It's a relationship that may be tested to destruction. Veronica dislikes recent transfer Jackie Cook, but Wallace wants to be the newcomer's lunch buddy with privileges, and she seems to reciprocate his growing feelings for her.
Veronica may have been a little skeptical about Wallace's claims to be the star of the basketball team. The guy's cute but he isn't six-foot-anything, so who can blame her. Lo and behold, when the season came round, Wallace proved that he was the real deal. Nowadays, you can hear him say, without fear of contradiction from his rapidly growing fan base at Neptune High, "Michael Jordan ain't got nothin' on me." He might need that kind of fleetness of foot if his best friend and his (likely future) girlfriend really do hate each other.
