It’s not every day you meet your best friend when they’ve been duct taped to a flagpole but that is exactly how Veronica Mars and Wallace Fennel first met thanks to some kindly members of the PCH Bike Club. Those guys really are the best. No, really, they are. But anyways, Veronica could have stood there gawking at him like everyone else instead of breaking out her trusty pocket knife to cut him down. Which I’m pretty sure was against Neptune High’s weapons policy. The pocket knife, not cutting him down.
But standing idly by is not something Veronica excels at, thank goodness. Now for all intent and purpose, their friendship could have ended there. It’s not like Veronica was in the market for new friends and she seemed quite content on the outside looking in, but Wallace knew nothing of her past story with the elite of Neptune High, all he knew was while everyone else did nothing she stood up and that says more about a person than anything else could have.
During a time when most of the guy-girl friendships on television inevitably led to romance, Veronica Mars and Wallace Fennel showed us that men and women could be the best of friends.
