(Shawn is writing on a board.)
Gus: What does this mean?
Shawn: I have no idea, but I see it on Numb3rs all the time and it seems to work for them.
(Shawn has asked Gus to call a crisis hotline.)
Gus: I don't know what to say!
Shawn: Here's a good opener: "Hello, my name is Gus, and I have a deep sea of jealousy for a tiny little boy cat."
Shawn: (shouts to McNab) McNab! Nabby! (to Gus) Buzz.
Gus: Buzz, seriously?
Shawn: It's his first name. Don't you ever talk to him?
Gus: Why would I talk to anybody named Buzz?
Gus: To be honest, I'm burnt. I just wanna take a nap.
Shawn: Couldn't agree with you more, buddy. I think we should lay low for a bit. No more cases.
Gus: Oh, I'm so glad to hear you say that. I was kind of worried about telling you.
Shawn: Don't be a silly goose. Now, we've had a good talk, I think we both felt it, and look at this. Here we are.
Gus: What is this, Shawn?
Shawn: OK, here's the thing. The police may have found a body...which I may have picked up on my police scanner, which...I may have brought with me.
Gus: What is it, you see something?
Shawn: Red Pepper Flakes.
Gus: What is that, a clue or something?
Shawn: No, it's a delicious spice, and exactly what my mee krop needs!
Lassiter: What in the name of sweet justice are you doing at my crime scene?
Shawn: Your crime scene? That's funny, I didn't see your name on it anywhere.
Lassiter: (said sarcastically) Ha, ha. Get out!
Lassiter: That was adequate, Spencer.
Shawn: Don't thank me. Thank the little boy cat.
(O'Hara and Lassiter are examining the body in the car)
O'Hara: We're waiting for forensics to confirm, but it appears to be a suicide. Carbon monoxide poisoning. Asphyxiation.
Shawn: (holding the cat) Ooh, I'm afraid the cat doesn't think so.
Gus: How do you just eat when there's a dead guy laying there?
Shawn: What, is that rude? Am I supposed to share?
Shawn: There is a witness. There's a cat. I want to talk to that cat as soon as he's finished licking himself. (Shawn continues watching the cat) Wow... I'm jealous.
Shawn: The cat is not my new partner, Gus. Don't be ridiculous.
Gus: Then tell me again why the cat gets to ride shotgun?
Shawn: Because he gets carsick and you know that.
Shawn: (poetically) Dude, he put you on the creepy train headed for creep island where the natives drink creep nectar out of creepy coconut shells...
Gus: Shawn, it's horrible.
O'Hara: The body's been here at least three days, maybe more, all signs point to an 11-44.
Lassiter: Three 11-44s in four months, must be something in the water.
O'Hara: That was amazing! How did you do that?
Lassiter: It was a lucky guess.
Shawn: Don't you get tired of saying that?
