** Technically, Lilly warning Veronica in a flashback that Celeste will try to break Veronica and Duncan up. At this point in the series they're already broken up, but it isn't confirmed until late in the season that Celeste is indeed the one responsible (having told Duncan that Veronica is his half-sister)

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Wallace has apparently liked Georgia for months. She goes to the same school and works with Wallace as an office aide. They get together at the end of this episode and go to Homecoming together. She is never seen or spoken of again.
* CrazyPrepared: The scammers' computer setup - a room protected by an alarm that they keep on even while they're both inside, multiple hard drives in individual cages, and a massive backup server inside a locker with a lock that even Veronica's bolt cutters can't get through.
* CuttingTheKnot: Veronica steals the scammers' hard drives, but then realises that there's a backup server in another locker. The lock is too good to be cut by her bolt-cutters, and the locker is too heavy to break through or steal. So she floods the entire thing with a dozen cans of energy drink.

* PosthumousCharacter: Lilly is always this, but this is the episode that best fleshes out her character and shows why she and Veronica were best friends.

...where the four of them are still partying, but are now walking on the beach, and have moved to playing "I Never". Veronica says she's never gone skinny-dipping, and the others not only drink, but chastise Veronica for this; Lily tells her they're going to have to change that. Logan, looking at Duncan, says, "[[ADateWithRosiePalms I've never taken matters into my own hand in the boys' locker room after watching the cheerleader tryouts.]]" Duncan tells Logan he's dead, and drinks, Lily laughs, and Veronica hopes this happened before they started going out. Duncan says he's never seen his parents having sex. Lily drinks, and describes what happened, [[TooMuchInformation which grosses Duncan out]]. Lily then says she's never not had sex, which Logan clarifies as, "Drink if you're a virgin." Veronica drinks, and after some hesitation, so does Duncan. Lily and Logan laugh, Veronica thinks it's sweet and kisses him, and the four of them end up hugging each other.

** The gameplay segments are quite wrong. The game itself is ''UnrealTournament3'', but without the split-screen multiplayer that would have been necessary for a single large television. The result is three people (including Veronica) all trying to control the same character.

** Averted when Keith mentions ''TheMatrix Online'', which actually was unreleased and eagerly anticipated at the time.

That night, Veronica goes to the club looking like a live-action version of a SailorMoon character. She sits on a couch between two guys, one of whom is named Liam (Robert Baker), who are playing a game with each other. She notices one of the people on the game board is named Grrantula, which is similar to the handle on the e-mail address Georgia got. She signs up to play under the name "Game Girl", and goes back to her same position on the couch. She starts firing at anyone and everyone and eventually Grant (Adam Wylie) tells her in an irritated voice not to fire on her own team. When Veronica leaps up after one "kill" and yells, "Ownage!", Grant jumps up to yell at her, and she gets a good look at him. She then leaves, but not before getting Grant's ID.
