    Re: community soap

    They're probably referring to the soap in a public bathroom.

    Not a teacher.

    Re: community soap

    I`ve found the script.

    VERONICA: Why were you in Lilly's room?
    WEEVIL: What better house for some B&E?
    VERONICA: I know about you and Lilly. I know about the letters.
    WEEVIL: Yeah? [Sitting up, a bit pissed off] Well, whatever you know, that's not all there is to it.
    VERONICA: [Standing] I tell you that I'm close to finding Lilly's killer and two hours later, you're breaking into her room. What do you expect me to think?
    WEEVIL: [Angry] Look, I told you what I was doing there. Now if you don't wanna believe me, that's on you, okay? You gonna help me or not?
    VERONICA: No.

    Veronica turns and gets to the door leading out of the cells.

    WEEVIL: All right, all right, hold on!

    Weevil stands and moves to the edge of the cell. Veronica stops by the door and looks back.

    WEEVIL: Diamond ring.
    VERONICA: You broke in to steal a ring?
    WEEVIL: I was trying to get it back. It-it's my mother's and she was saving it for me as an engagement ring. At one time I was dumb enough to think I wanted Lilly to have it.
    VERONICA: Find it?
    WEEVIL: No. Look, uh, the Kanes want me crucified for this and now that I'm 18...
    VERONICA: Good-bye juvie. Hello COMMUNITY SOAP
    WEEVIL: [Whispering] Yeah.

    Cut to a new lost dog notice rolling off the printer at Mars Investigations. Mandy takes it and compares it with her effort.

    MANDY: Now I see how crappy mine was.
    VERONICA: It was heartfelt crappy. So tell me more about the night Chester disappeared. Your front gate was open?

    Ah, in that context, it's referring to the communal soap used in prison showers. There's a running joke about "dropping the soap" in American prison showers.

    The contrast is with "juvie". Veronica is saying 'This time, you won't be going to a juvenile detention centre; you'll be going to a real adult prison".
