A very astute observer over at the BKV Cabal noted something about that Veronica Mars episode. The name of the missing lab monkey is "25", and the 25th letter of the alphabet? Y of course. One could go further and say that in spanish the letter Y means "and" ie. ampersand. Heh.
Looking closer at these caps I've noticed that Yorick is wearing plaid shirts, the green one looking suspiciously similar to the one he sports on the cover of one of the Marrisville issues (too much?). I wonder if the globe in the living room is part of this apparent homage? Hmm.
Now I really have to watch this.
