Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

Deep down inside aren’t we all just marshmallows? That’s the best way to describe fans of the critically acclaimed series, Veronica Mars. While the show didn’t exactly rake in viewers, it did develop a cult following. Fans loved Veronica, the teenage private eye who was determined to solve her best friend’s murder, and were also admirers of the witty dialogue that occurs so naturally between the characters. Despite the show’s dark subject matter (rape, murder and possible incest – oh my!) the show’s creator, Rob Thomas, and his team of writers kept the viewers from delving too deeply into the seedy abyss of Neptune High by peppering the entire series with sharp humour. Here are ten examples and, if you don’t chuckle at least once, you are not a true marshmallow.

10. When Veronica Mars suggests her father Keith give Weevil a job at Mars Investigation to keep him out of prison:

Veronica: I bet you’d be pretty psyched if I found someone who could help.
Keith: Level of “psyched” would depend on the “someone.”
Veronica: Eli Navarro. Remember?
Keith: You mean Weevil? Oh, Veronica, please.
Veronica: Dad, I’m serious.
Keith: Oh, I don’t know, all those times I arrested him he never struck me as great secretary material. Didn’t he get busted for murder?
Veronica: Assault.
Keith: See, so he’s not even a very good murderer.

9. Veronica Mars was surprisingly cynical about her mom leaving the family.

Keith: I never want you to think that your mom is the villain in all of this.
Veronica: Isn’t she?
Keith: No, it’s not that simple…
Veronica: Yeah it is. The hero is the one that stays… and the villain is the one that splits.
