Goofs: (at around 1 min) When Veronica and Logan are talking in front of the fireplace, you can see the boom mic reflected in the mirror above the mantle, going back and forth between them as they say their lines.


"This is my school. If you go here, your parents are either millionaires or they work for millionaires. Neptune, California. A town without a middle class. If you're in the second group, you get a job: fast food, movie theaters, mini-marts. Or you could be me. My after-school job means tailing philandering spouses or investigating false injury claims....(closing voiceover) Okay, it's a long shot, but I can't help myself. I used to think I knew what tore our family apart. Now I'm sure I don't. But I promise this: I will find out what really happened, and I will bring this family back together again. I'm sorry, is that mushy? Well, you know what they say. Veronica Mars, she's a marshmallow."
