"Rat Saw God" is episode 6 of season 2 of the television show "Veronica Mars". It had an estimated audience size of 3.01 million US viewers on its first airing.


After Keith loses the sheriff election, Veronica gets asked for help by the last person she ever thought she'd see: Abel Koontz. His daughter, Amelia DeLongpre, is missing and he wants to see her before he dies, so Veronica tries to track her down. This leads to surprises and shocks as she encounters Clarence Wiedman as well. Also, Logan and his father have a conversation in jail before Keith has a talk with Aaron.

Arc significance

* Woody Goodman is elected to the Balboa County Board of Supervisors. The town of Neptune, being unincorporated, has no officers of its own; the Supervisor whose district includes Neptune is unofficially known as "mayor" of Neptune.
* Keith again loses the sheriff election to Lamb.
* A witness turns up for Felix's murder, so Logan is arrested again.
* Abel Koontz succumbs to stomach cancer.
* Amelia DeLongpre was in Neptune, outside Kane Software, a week ago. Her boyfriend wanted her to get more money out of them and Clarence Wiedman complied. Veronica tracks Amelia to a motel in rural California, and finds her body in the ice machine, just as Wiedman shows up; they investigate together. Amelia's boyfriend starts using the (marked) money in Las Vegas, so Weidman goes there, presumably to kill him.
* Keith visits Aaron and tells him that if one hair is hurt on Veronica's head, Aaron will pay for it.
* Keith breaks into the area where the bus is kept and finds a rat taped under one of the seats.


* "Girl on the Bus" - Kissinger

Writing and acting

Quotes and trivia

:Deputy Sachs: The sheriff would like to have a word with you.:Logan: And I’d like to be the cream filling of an Olsen Twins sandwich, but — [shrugs] :Deputy: Will you come with me please?:Logan: If I’m under arrest, then do me the courtesy of making it all official-like.

:Dick Jr.: Wait, did I miss a state proposition or something? Is it now a crime to kill a Mexican?

:Logan: " [To his father] " I just need a little time to work through how you bashed my girlfriend's skull in.

:Keith: Honey, it's over. Go on to your boyfriend's party. I've got Cliff to keep me company, right Cliff?:Cliff: Right. I promise to hold his hair back if he has to make sick in the toilet.

:Logan: So, my tax dollars at work. Where were you, getting thirds at the Crazy Girls lunch buffet?:Cliff: Actually, they discontinued the buffet. Some health code thing. Okay, my name is Cliff, I'll be your if-you-cannot-afford-an-attorney attorney. So. What are you trying to prove? :Logan: Um ... my innocence?

:Veronica: Cliff, come on, you owe me.:Cliff: I owe you? Who un-confiscated all your fake college IDs?:Veronica: Who got the Lincoln out of your ex's name?:Cliff: Well, who helped put that lien against Lee's Walk-In Donut?:Veronica: And who proved that stripper was color-blind?:Cliff: Okay, who am I calling and what am I giving them?

:Keith: I'm here because of my daughter.:Aaron: Oh that's funny, so am I.

:Aaron: If they give you enough press, you'd find a way to put me on the grassy knoll.

:Veronica: Actually I'm looking for someone. :Motel Clerk: Well, if it's me, congratulations. Otherwise, unless you get lucky at the Gas 'n' Sip, your options are pretty limited around here.
