    Trivia (4)

    • Goof:In this episode it is mentioned a number of times that the latest crime solved by Shawn and Gus (from "Shawn (and Gus) of the Dead") made the front page of the newspaper, but yet at the end of the last episode Lassiter comments that "his" big solve only made page 2, as the scandal with Saulter's affair made the front page

    • Goof: When Mr. Haversham says he knew Shawn was faking his psychic ability, he says he hears something at the end of the call (that came from inside his house), a voice that says "Gus." Shawn makes a big show of hanging up said phone when Gus catches him in the attic before anyone, either he or Gus, says a word.

    • Goof: Shawn finds a Furby on his bed. Furbys came out in 1998, and Shawn had already left home by 1995.

    • Psych-Out: Shawn and Gus sing "Ebony and Ivory".

    Allusions (3)

    • Gus: The call is coming from inside the house.
      This is a reference to Fred Walton's 1979 psychological thriller When a Stranger Calls starring Carol Kane

    • Shawn: (sitting on bed talking to Gus over the phone) Holy Dude. (Shawn reaches over to the bedside table to grab a magazine) I just found a pristine issue of Dynamite magazine. Square Pegs on the cover. Hold on, let me read Bummers. Dynamite magazine (1974 – 1992) was published monthly by Scholastic Press. The magazine featured profiles of television shows, movies and music stars; it also included puzzles and games. Bummers references the "Don't you hate it when…" section written by kids' submissions. Shawn is holding Issue 105, Volume 6, Number 8 dated February 1983.

    • Shawn: I'm a psychic – and with great power comes great responsibility. Referencing the Marvel Comics supehero Spider-Man, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The line, "With great power comes great responsibility.", is a paraphrase of a narrative caption in Amazing Fantasy #15.
