The Wizard of Oz (Characters)

"You need to go see the wizard. Ask him for some guts."
...
"I'll tell you what, Veronica Mars, why don't you go see the wizard? Ask for a little backbone."

From a children's book and the movie that followed, the titular character was a small man who used trickery to appear awesome and in a position to grant supplicants what they most desired. Sheriff Lamb is a small man who uses bullying tactics to appear awesome and is in a position to be a right ass. Lamb snidely infers that Wallace is the coward when Wallace baulks at identifying a couple of thieving bikers in front of the whole gang. Lamb gives the just-raped Veronica the same advice on her reaction to his refusal to investigate the crime. If ever, if ever a dick there was, the sheriff of Neptune is one because, because, because, because...because of the miserable things he does.
