* ShoutOut: In addition to the ones listed above (Music/ThePolice, Music/TheRollingStones), when Logan bumps into Weevil at the coffee bar, Weevil says, "Hey, manners, [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Opie]]!"
** Also, when his class is playing the game at the beginning, Mr. Rooks says, "Who will be [[Series/TheWeakestLink the weakest link?]]", and when he calls on Carrie, says, "[[Series/RowanAndMartinsLaughIn Sock it to me, baby!]]". [[HarsherInHindsight Which, in hindsight...]]
** Also, when Wallace hands over Carrie's file to Veronica, they parody dialogue from ''Series/MissionImpossible'':
-->'''Wallace:''' If you are caught with this, I will disavow any knowledge of you or your mission. You'll be on your own.
-->'''Veronica:''' Don't worry. I've got a cyanide capsule in a false tooth. If I'm caught, I'll do the honourable thing.
-->'''Wallace:''' It's been a privilege knowing you, Mars.
** Also, when Carrie is telling Veronica about Mr. Rooks' method of seducing his students, Veronica snarks that she has that same ''SweetValleyHigh'' book.

In contrast to the darkness of this scene, the next scene is more upbeat, as Mr. Rooks (Adam Scott) is leading his history students, including Veronica, Wallace and Carrie Bishop (Leighton Meester) in a ''FamilyFeud''-type contest about the fall of the Roman Empire. The students are all enthusiastically into it (especially Veronica), except for Carrie. When Mr. Rooks calls on her, Carrie snaps she's not pregnant, she doesn't need his money, and she gives him his key back. Mr. Rooks and the rest of the class gapes into the opening credits.

Later, at lunch, Carrie is sitting alone while a few girls behind her start singing ThePolice song, "[[FridgeBrilliance Don't Stand So Close to Me]]". Wallace notices and is sympathetic, but Veronica calls Carrie the "gossip queen" of Neptune High, and is glad to see her get payback. Before Veronica even finishes asking, Wallace guesses she wants Carrie's school file, and Veronica good-naturedly admits she does. She sees Duncan and, running up to him, asks for the name of his physician, [[BlatantLies as hers retired]]. Duncan complies - Dr. Levine - but warns he's expensive; Veronica says she's got insurance, and Duncan, bemused, walks off. Veronica, of course, wants to find out Duncan's mystery illness.

...and we go into a {{Flashback}} with Carrie and Susan Knight (Christine Lakin) in the girl's bathroom, applying makeup and gossiping about Veronica and Duncan, [[BathroomStallOfOverheardInsults unaware Veronica is in one of the stalls and can hear them]]. Carrie mentions Duncan had been taken to the hospital foaming at the mouth and screaming Veronica's name. Veronica comes out of the stall just then, and while Susan looks slightly guilty, Carrie is defiant. Back in the present, Veronica looks hurt.

At the Mars apartment, Keith is making lasagna, which Veronica correctly guesses is to make up for the fact he has bad news. Keith admits Mr. Rooks was fired from his last job teaching at a private school, and it was because the parents of two girls complained. Veronica takes this in, but asks once again to see Carrie's journal, which Keith once again refuses to do.

That night, at Mars Investigations, Veronica tries to open Keith's safe, but he's changed the combination. [[InnerMonologue Veronica notes Keith is always smart enough to change the combination to meaningless numbers]]...[[ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish except she notices a group of numbers written on Keith's day calendar]]. Sure enough, Veronica is able to open the safe, and finds a metal box labeled "Bishop". She opens the box, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and is immediately covered by the blue paint bomb Keith left for her]].

Later, in the hallway, Veronica corners Carrie, and tells her once more to drop the complaint. Carrie bitterly notes she's become the outcast of the school while Mr. Rooks is more popular than ever, and describes his seduction routine, which involves black silk sheets, sob stories about his ex-wife leaving him, and side two of ''Tattoo You'' by the RollingStones. Veronica still doesn't believe Carrie, and mentions Carrie was in Sacramento at a track meet the same night she claimed to have been with Mr. Rooks at a hotel.

The next day, in an auditorium, the school board, led by Mrs. Fuller (Lisa Long), is hearing Carrie's complaint, with Mr. Rooks, Veronica and Vice-Principal Clemmons, among others, in attendance. Mr. Rooks testifies at how his career has been ruined, and repeats the story of Carrie's low grade. When Carrie testifies, she mentions how her life had fallen apart after her parents had been divorced, and Mr. Rooks would give her rides and share stories at how they'd both been abandoned by people they loved. She says they got involved, but when she became pregnant, Mr. Rooks blew her off, and when she saw him flirting with other girls, she decided he needed to be punished. When Mrs. Fuller asks Carrie for proof, Carrie doesn't bring up the diary, but does mention Mr. Rooks would text her all the time. Mrs. Fuller notes the messages are addressed to "S.K.", and Carrie hurriedly says Mr. Rooks would call her "sweet knees". Mrs. Fuller hits the callback button and Mr. Rooks' phone rings. However, Veronica gets an idea; she borrows Clemmons' cellphone, and while Clemmons is testifying - he mentions [[CoolTeacher Mr. Rooks is very popular with the students]] - texts Mrs. Fuller with various lewd messages from it. Mr. Rooks calls attention to that fact, proving anyone can create false text messages. Sure enough, when Mrs. Fuller and the rest of the school board reconvenes, they find Carrie doesn't have enough evidence to back up her claim. Veronica is happy, while Carrie looks heartbroken.

In the courtyard at school the next day, Veronica finds Carrie and apologizes. Carrie replies that it doesn't do any good, but before Veronica can respond, Weevil calls for her and says he's has the kid, named Hart, who shot the footage of Lynn's suicide. In journalism class later, Logan joins them. Hart tells them he and his friends were making a war movie, and when they were editing it together, they noticed something. He puts a DVD into the computer, and magnifies the image of a woman jumping from a bridge in the background of the movie Hart and his friends were shooting; he also says the time corresponds to when Lynn supposedly jumped. Logan is in shock, as is Weevil, and Veronica can't look. Veronica and Weevil both warn Hart about the footage going public, and Weevil drags Hart out of the class, but not before glancing sympathetically at Logan. Logan, still in shock, leaves after Veronica apologizes, but brightens when Veronica runs out and tells him one of Lynn's credit cards was just used.

[[Recap/VeronicaMarsS01E13LordOfTheBling We pick up where we left off in the previous episode, as Logan asks Veronica to help him find his mother]]. She invites him in and gently asks why he thinks Lynn is still alive. Getting defensive, he wonders why everyone assumes she's dead, and when Veronica points out the witness, he retorts, "[[SarcasmMode If she's on the TV, she must be telling the truth]]." Calming down, he points out Lynn's credit cards are missing, and he thinks she faked her death (despite the note on her Blackberry) because if she wanted to kill herself, it'd be by pills, not by jumping. Veronica promises to look into it.
