"Man, I figured I had me my own copycat. Cool, huh?"
"Oh, give me a break, man! You're some punk freshman. So give me back my tunes before I kick your ass."

Arturo is a PCH biker wannabe. A taser and not-so-subtle racism guide young Arturo's efforts to impress Thumper and the gang when he devises the great Pizza-Boy-Mugging-capade. Cho's delivery boys are shocked and robbed when they approach the homes of coconuts — Latinos who get too friendly with whites or too uppity at school. Arturo's own part in deepening the Neptune divide is brought to an unceremonious end by a length of wire, a taser of equal power, a slavering dog, and Veronica Mars. Deputy Jerry Sacks gets his juvenile delinquent present gift-wrapped to a pole with duct tape.

But the incompetence of Neptune's law enforcement authorities is such that despite Arturo's taped confession, he's back out on the streets quickly, in time to spit at the local rich-boy trash and join the PCHers. Unlike Weevil, who thought he was too young and cherubic, Thumper let Arturo in. This was just in time to get a Fitzpatrick cigarette lighter in the face for coming up short as a drug pusher. Congratulations, Arturo! You're a scarred, drug-dealing freshman. Your dreams really did come true.
