Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Literature)

"That guy's too big. That guy's too small. That guy's...not a guy, just in desperate need of a stylist. But that guy looks just right."

Veronica searches amongst the One-Eyed Ducks for the bowler whose torso was shot stalking missing bride Heidi. As she uses both eyes to scan the team, she can't help but draw on the adventures of fairy-tale heroine Goldilocks, a small blonde, contemplating the beds of variously sized bears. Children's stories are so enduring that they are frequently subverted to describe more adult themes, as is the case here, or ADULT themes, as would be a question which occupied her in Season One, "Who's been bowling in Veronica's alley?"

"You didn't ask how high. Didn't Goldilocks say 'jump'?"

The heroine (or is it antagonist?) of the fairy tale "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" claimed her 15 minutes of fame by eating, sitting, and sleeping on things that were not hers. Perhaps that memory, along with Veronica's blonde hair, make Jackie hot under the collar when Veronica manages to whisk Wallace away with a simple phone call.
