  • Quotes (723)

    • Gus: (as he and Shawn are approaching a house) How should we introduce ourselves? Don't say psychic! They'll shut you off. Say something vague like Alternative Tactics Division. Shawn: How about the Bureau of Magic and Spell-casting?

    • Shawn: (using binoculars) What is the magnification of these things? Gus: 2X. Shawn: Okay, we really need to stop at Wal-Mart on the way home.

    • (Shawn and Gus run off with Katarina's bag and back to their car) Shawn: Gus, you locked the car?! Gus: It's a bad neighborhood!

    • Shawn: Go buy the bag. Gus: What, you want a souvenir of your ineptitude? Shawn: I need to get a better look inside the bag. Gus: I'm not going in there. That guy wants to kill us. Shawn: Gus, this guy works in a thrift store, OK? He's a big furry-hearted good Samaritan.

    • Thrift Store Guy: I've gone to jail for less than you. Gus: Jail's no fun. I'll tell you that much. Thrift Store Guy: Oh, you've been. Gus: Once. In Monopoly.

    • Shawn: (placing money in the bag) So, we've got five stacks going across. You figure four going longways. Ten stacks in each pile based on the wear and the indentation. I don't know, depending on the denomination, this could easily be five million dollars. Gus: You're kidding. Shawn: Yeah, give or take. Gus: You got that from a groove on the side. Shawn: Oh, come on, Gus. Any small child could've figured that out.

    • Lucinda: You here to scope out the new meter maids? Shawn: No, I am here to see you. Lucinda: Not interested. Shawn: I know. You have someone special. He's married and/or separated.

    • Shawn: (picking up a gun) Wow, they're so much lighter when they're filled with water.
