Veronica: We meet Carter’s parents! I was sort of thinking I should continue on with the joke, but that woulda extended.. and I just don’t really have the “humor” for it.. so yeah. They move on quickly.. nice while it lasted! Lucy’s showing some softness whoaaaa.

I like Mike’s expression when he says, “I got you covered.” They’re breaching into the Twilight Zone when they don’t even know it…
