1.02 "Credit Where Credit's Due"

Aired Sep 28, 2004


Why is Paris Hilton famous? She played Caitlin Ford, the girlfriend of the cuckolded Logan Echolls, but really, why is she famous? Is she as persnickety as Veronica Mars, and as flat as God made her? No. Is she self-sacrificing like Weevil, giving up his freedom for a few months in juvie to protect his grandma from charges of credit card fraud? Nope. Does she have still waters running deep like the taciturn Duncan? Nuh-uh. Is she duplicitous, like Weevil's cousin Chardo, the real fraudster? We wouldn't like to say. Is she charming and hunky like new kid in town Troy Vandegraff? Not a chance. Is there something magical about her, like Lilly who can be photographed laughing and happy hours after her supposed time of death? Probably not. So, why is Paris Hilton famous? It's a mystery.
