A show that ended far too early managed to go down swinging with these 6 “Veronica Mars” quotes that will remind you why the show was amazing. Talent abounded in a cast, featuring Kristen Bell, that made you cringe as you landed in a world on high school failings and smile at the memory of old friends. A strong storyline that made mystery smarter than the normal “Scooby Doo” plots created a show that gave more to the audience than it took.
“You are the last good person here at Neptune High. I believe cartoon birds braided your hair this morning.” Veronica Mars makes an animated cartoon reference so sincere it knocks your insulin levels into outer space. Veronica cheered up Meg with a “Cinderella” compliment that is blind to the choppy waters their relationship will have to sail through. Any other show and this “Veronica Mars” quote would land far from amazing, but instead it sticks a perfect and funny landing in syrupy sentiment.
“But if you're coming home who will play 'Dead Hooker Two' on 'CSI' this week?” The love between siblings is forged from the fire of physical and mental combat of growing up together. Informed by his sister, Trina, that she is coming home, Logan made sure to kick out any pedestal she placed under herself so she would remember her place in their world. Not content with giving her a starring cameo, he threw her under the bus by making sure she didn’t even get prime extra billing as the first dead hooker discovered. This is a great line to add to your mental arsenal if you are friends with any budding actors, especially male ones.
“Shut up! If I want you to speak, I'll wave a Snausage in front of your nose.” With the power of words, Veronica took down Lenny with the precision of a verbal sniper. In the world of detectives, a sharp wit and dominating mind is a prerequisite. “Veronica Mars” shows again why it’s an amazing show by making dialogue as common as an insult into a near work of art, even if it is a middle finger painting. Can life hold any beauty for you if you can’t enjoy a good Snausage reference?
“Tragedy blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything. Creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild.” “Veronica Mars” created a world filled with wit and laughter but didn’t forget to give equal weight to the serious side of life as this wonderful quote bears witness to. Whether you wallow in the past or use it to build the present, it is your path to choose. The beauty of this quote from Veronica lies in the many characters it applied to as the series went on.
“My name is Cliff and I'll be your 'If you cannot afford an attorney' attorney.” Cliff would have been a throw away character on any other show, but in “Veronica Mars” he was the earnestly sleazy or sleazily earnest lawyer that served as ally and confidant to Veronica. Beyond his deep-seated cynicism, Cliff gave Mars the adult street cred she needed as well as the occasional jaded opinion on life that kept her in check.
“Got any enemies you know about? Well, there's the Klan.” Veronica asks Wallace a question and finds out he’s not only in the same ballpark as her, but they’re sharing a base. Showing off a dark bit of humor, this “Veronica Mars” quote is amazing in its simplicity as it dealt with Wallace’s ancestry as the non-issue it should be while still getting in a solid joke on racial bigotry. Wallace complemented rather than supported Veronica, which took him out of the generic sidekick niche and planted him firmly as an actual friend and equal.
