Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 8: Like a Virgin

This one starts with Veronica asking Abel Koontz’s lawyer (Cliff, who’s worked with the Mars Detective Agency frequently) to get her in to see Koontz.

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 7: The Girl Next Door

This one starts with Veronica sitting on the steps of her apartment complex as someone is taken out of her neighbour’s place on a stretcher.

This one starts with one of those Hollywood tours of the stars’ homes stopping at the Echolls residence. Apparently Logan’s father (Aaron Echolls, played by Harry Hamlin) is a big movie star.

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 3: Meet John Smith

This one starts at school, where a guy named Justin Smith is comparing notes on local hotties with the rest of his nerd posse. Justin gives Veronica a 9, but I doubt if he’s ever said two words to her in person. Troy kinda asks Veronica out for the weekend (to go sailing in his fancy boat) and when Veronica drops her books, her ex (Duncan) picks them up for her, which is slightly awkward.

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 2: Credit Where Credit’s Due

This one starts with Veronica telling Wallace about her (boring) plans for the weekend. Wallace shows her a coded flyer advertising a 09er party (09ers are the kids who live within the fancy 90909 ZIP Code). Veronica interprets the coded flyer, telling Wallace where and when the party will be before reminding him why the flyer is in code in the first place … to keep undesirables like them away.
