    • Shawn: Babysit? Really, Jules, come on. Juliet: Shawn, what have you done today? Shawn: Let's see. I watched some Phineas and Ferb, took a nap, had a snack… I'm a little tired. Juliet: Exactly.

    • Juliet: (about their partnership) I'm sorry Shawn, but it's over. Shawn: I understand. It was fun while it lasted. Juliet: No it wasn't. Shawn: We made a great team. Juliet: No, we didn't. It was a disaster! Partners don't lie to one another, and partners don't run off mid-investigation, and partners do not go through my purse, find my phone and text photos of my dog to every guy in my address book with the caption, "This is you!"

    • Shawn: I'm a psychic with the police department, this is my partner, Santonio Holmes.

    • Gus: Good luck getting hired on the case I'm already on Shawn: Well, good luck getting hired on my case that you're not on. Wait, that doesn't make any sense…

    • Shawn: Hey,if Gus is allowed to show off his "expertise," then I'm allowed to show off mine. Lassiter: Spencer, we don't have time to watch you make a snowman out of mashed potatoes.

    • Original International Airdates:
      Finland: May 27, 2013 on MTV3

    • Featured Music: "As We Enter" by Nas and Damian Marley

    • Credits Error: Although billed in the end credits as "Ruth Lake," the name "Ruth Blake" was used throughout the episode, including when Juliet and Shawn were at her house questioning her. Her daughter's name, "Desiree Blake," was shown on the e-mails Shawn found on the computer at the lab.

    • Special billing was given to Kurt Fuller (and) and Jason Samuels Smith (Special Performance and Choreography by) for this episode. Jason Samuels Smith is an American tap performer/choreographer, who has won both an Emmy and American Choreography Award for his work on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon. Dulé Hill brought him to the attention of show's producers, as he related in an Entertainment Weekly online interview, "I've always wanted to get to dance on the air, to find the right way to work tap into this show, but it's not always easy. So I'm thankful that the producers and the writing staff came together to make it happen. There's so many wonderful tap dancers out there that just don't have the avenue for the light to be shown on them and for the public to know who they are, so I was glad to be able to have Jason come out so people could see the genius that he is."

    • The Psych Writers' Room Twitter account held a contest for the best alternate title for this episode. Two winners received ticket stubs from the Los Angeles Paley Center's "An Evening with Psych" event on April 22, 2010 signed by some of the writers for their entries "Nobody Puts Lassie in the Corner" and "Gus'ta Move." Two honorable mentions went to the entries "Astaire Way to Heaven" and "This is NOT Spinal Tap."

    Trivia (3)

    • Geographically Impossible: Japadog, the food Shawn and Gus discuss, is a street food vendor in Vancouver, Canada. It is run by Noriki Tamura, who moved to the city in 2005. He serves Japanese-style hot dogs. They are only available at the cart in Vancouver.

    • Psych-out: Gag reel from the "big reveal" scene at the lab.

    • Pineapple Spotting: The pineapple is a small ornament sitting in the circle of a wristwatch on Lillian's desk at the lab when Shawn checks the emails.

    Allusions (1)

    • Shawn: (about Lassiter tap dancing) I don't think we have time to give the Savion Glover treatment… Savion Glover is a choreographer, tap dancer, and actor. He starred in the 1996 Tony Award-winning musical Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk on Broadway, which also starred Dulé Hill, giving this double duty as a bit of an in-joke. Dulé Hill also was Savion Glover's understudy in an earlier show on Broadway called The Tap Dance Kid.
