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.
