Sally Field (People)

"Good game."
"Wassup, player?"
"Um-um-um hmm."
"They like you! They really like you!"

While Wallace walks down the hall at Neptune High receiving praise and practicing complex hand shakes with fans (sounding out the moves as he proceeds), Veronica is by his side, mis-quoting Sally Field's famous Oscar acceptance speech. The tearful actress actually ended with: "I can't deny the fact that you like me. Right now, you like me!" Wallace definitely could have said this, but he might have gotten a few strange looks from his friends. Veronica's version is a little more palatable.

"Oh, wow, I'm stunned. You like me! You really like me!"

Although Logan is misquoting Sally Field's famous Oscar acceptance speech, the intent is clear. Sally Field, a woman who began her career playing roles like Gidget and the Flying Nun (and seriously, did you guys know that their explanation for how she flew was that her wimple caught the wind? That's, like, the most ridiculous thing ever, and I just learned it recently), won her second Oscar in 1985 and gave that immortal and often-misquoted speech. Wait, two Oscars?
