1.02 "Credit Where Credit's Due"

Aired Sep 28, 2004


  • Lamb: This is the Sheriff's Department. I want your IDs out and everyone remain where you are.

    Sacks: We...gonna go after them?

    Lamb: Nah, let's get out, get the kegs. Tell the guys cookout at my place tomorrow night.

  • Keith: You hear that, honey? That's leadership. Way to stand up on your own two feet, Lamb, and say, "Hey, the buck stops...there."

  • Wallace: Do I look like James Bond to you?

    Veronica: Am I asking you to retrieve a nuclear warhead? No. Just copy the attendance records. It's cake. Façile.

  • Veronica: The counselor stuck me in here. She says I'm disconnected and passionless.

  • Caitlin: I'm gonna go down to the gym to talk to people for the student poll.

    Ms. Dent: Be back by the end of the period. And remember that we are a multicultural school with a diverse population of students from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds.

    Caitlin: Meaning?

    Ms. Dent: Meaning, don't just interview your friends.

  • Ms. Dent: This is a 35mm camera. Now my suggestion as you're starting out is just to set it on auto and that way you —

    Veronica: I'd really be more comfortable if I could just use my own camera. Um, the swivel LCD really comes in handy when you're doing overhead shooting or ground level macro shooting.

    Ms. Dent: Right...

    Veronica: The optical zoom actually goes up to 71.2mm and it's good to have the raw file option because you can mess with the images post-exposure without nearly the loss of image quality you'd get with a JPEG file.

    Ms. Dent: And...when it's dark outside, you...you should use a flash.

  • Ms. Dent: Let me introduce you to the guy who's doing the story. Duncan Kane, this is Veronica. Veronica's going to be taking pictures tomorrow, and I arranged for you to ride with Bodie's parents.

    Duncan: I'll drive.

    Ms. Dent: Great, maybe Veronica can —

    Veronica: I can drive too.

    Ms. Dent: Okay. Oil crisis be damned.

  • Wallace: Yeah, you realize don't you, that this guy you're trying to help out duct taped me butt-naked to a flagpole just last week?

    Veronica: Man, you really hold a grudge.

    Wallace: Yeah, I'm funny that way. Hey, you're welcome for those records.

    Veronica: Wallace, King Kong ain't got nothin' on you.

  • Veronica: I printed out the entire browser history from Logan Echolls' computer in his fourth period computer lab class.

    Wallace: So? Is he guilty?

    Veronica: Well, of wanting desperately to see pictures of Alyssa Milano naked, yes.

  • Logan: Tell the truth, Veronica. Did you just sign up for newspaper so you could be near Duncan?

    Veronica: No. I'm here so I can be closer to you.

  • Troy: Flat?

    Veronica: Just as God made me.

    Troy: Are you always this persnickety?

    Veronica: Sometimes I'm even persnickety-er.

  • Troy: I'm Troy, by the way.

    Veronica: I'm Veronica.

    Troy: Really? Veronica. Okay, yeah, that does make a lot more sense.

    Veronica: Makes more sense how?

    Troy: Ah, it's nothing. It's just...never listen to those guys. I mean, really, who names their daughter Trampy McBitch?

  • Veronica Voiceover: I should have walked to Gold Coast. It's only 30 miles, but with the awkward silence, it feels like 300. In five seconds, I'm just gonna do the Charlie's Angel roll right out of the moving car. 5...4...3...

  • Veronica: I came in here about a month ago with a guy. Long story short, I'm pregnant.

    Receptionist: Okay...

    Veronica: Here's the thing. The next part's a little embarrassing. I don't remember the guy's name, or what he looks like. Tequila, never again!

  • Keith: I believe you misplaced this.

  • Troy: I am having a party on Saturday and you should come. Well, both of you.

    Wallace: Cool.

    Troy: But especially you.

    Veronica: Haven't you heard? I'm not allowed in the first class cabin.

  • Veronica: She's a thrill-seeker. Doing you was like doing the Dew.

  • Weevil: Veronica Mars. I hear you're to thank for this Kodak moment. Didn't you get the memo? The bad guy was already in jail. Gimme some love.
