    The Good:

    -Lassiter gets to play a prank on Shawn and Gus, for a change.

    -Marvin's Irish accent. Shawn asks him if he will please say, "Magically delicious," but Marvin refuses.

    -"...There's no way to be sure," in response to Gus's pharmaceutical drug recitation.

    -Shawn's baffled reaction to Gus's and his father's knowledge of the "Queer Eye" cast.

    -Shawn and Juliet are a 100% match on a personality survey taken when they go speed-dating as a cover to weed out the criminals.

    -One of the victims collects cuckoo clocks. They all chime at precisely the same moment.moreless
  • Shawn and Gus investage a speed date event.

    This episode was hilarious, the looks on Shawn and Gus's faces when they talked to the first man was priceless. I liked the scenes between Juliet and Shawn, when they where on the speed date, and got matched up, Shawn kept pressing her to ask him questions, but my favorite scene was when he runs into her while bowling and gets jealous after meeting her date, and the last scene of the episode, where she tells him she doesn't believe in the whole matching profiles thing, but I think its pretty clear that Shawn and Juliet like each other. Another great episode of Psych.moreless
  • The team dives head first into speed-dating... and guess who Shawn's perfect match is?

    10
    This one has to be a classic... a fat, traumatized man is found in the middle of a field with no memories of how he got there... or why he's naked. The obvious explanation is of course aliens. When a second man is found under identical circumstances, Shawn and Gus head to a tanning salon, where they find out a thing or two we didn't know about Henry Spencer. The story wouldn't be complete without a dead body, which leads the guys into the weird and desperate world of speed-dating, led by an overly-enthusiastic brunette with buggy eyes and a creepy little man in a leprechaun costume. This is where it gets good; the whole team (Lassie included)

    enter the event on department payroll to investigate. And guess who Shawn's perfect match is?

    This one's got it all: murder, alien abductions, romance and a few awkward father-son moments over the topic of bubble baths. Definitely one of my favorites so far!moreless
  • Speed Dating

    9.7
    This episode just had a lot of classic moments that were comic gold which is why I like this episode. From the first part where Shawn and Gus are interigating someone that is completely naked both just look like their having a bad time during questioning, especially Gus who is just thoughout the interigation just looking at the wall and is close to the door as if he want to bolt.



    The discovery of a few habbits of Shawn's dad that Shawn finds a little unmasculine. Discovering why Lassiter doesn't get many dates.



    But there were two things though that stood out the most in this episode as well as this season. For one thing Gus starting to take a more active role in his investigator assistant, he's starting to take more risks in both the role and his love life, when we see him actually date one person that they suspect. Gus is both turned on and rather nervious in his interaction with her which I thought was funny. In a way what he's doing isn't that different from regular dating who says it's a safe business.



    But also Shawn and Juliet interaction with one another, in the speed dating they discover their a perfect match for one another at least according to the surveys. We see both of them do like each other but a little shy in some places toward one another, Juliet can see through Shawn's silver tounge dialog and sees a person while Shawn is going in out of his way to impress her. This attraction toward one another is demonstrated in one scene when Juliet has a date in a bowling alley, we see some of Shawn's jellocy surface when he tell what he reads in the copple's future. All I can say is who know what the future holds for both Shawn and Juliet.moreless
  • Shawn and speed dating! What isn't funny about that?

    9.6
    This was undoubtedly one of the funniest and best Psychs ever. I loved it. I thought that this episode was really funny, considering that Lasiter wanted to give Shawn the case. Also, Shawn and Gus got to do interrogations. Granted the guys were naked, but hey, an interrogation is an interrogation right.



    I really loved the part at the speed dating where Shawn and Jules were together. That was funny. And then Lasiter and Jules, that was hilarious. I'm laughing just thinking about it. Pretty much everything with Lasiter at the speed dating service was funny. The way he was interrogating that one lady. That was awesome!!moreless

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Shawn: You, me, Burgess Meredith, Hume Cronyn, Nipsey Russell, deserted island. Who are you going to sleep with?

      Juliet: Dead.
      Shawn: Flip Wilson?
      Juliet: Also dead.
      Shawn: Donald Pleasance?
      Juliet: None of the above.
      Shawn: None of the above? Jules, are you kidding me?

    • Gus: Speed dating?
      Marvin: Yeah. Don't laugh, it's actually one of our most popular events. Guys come in here, they sign up, put down a hundred bucks, and they get fixed up with all sorts of people on little six-minute mini-dates.
      Gus: Did you say a hundred bucks?
      Marvin: Hundred bucks.
      Shawn: How about fifty bucks for three-minute dates?
      Gus: Twenty-five bucks for a minute-and-a-half?
      Shawn: I float you a ten-spot, you introduce us to somebody for fifteen seconds?

    • Lassiter: Look, this is a copycat, okay? He saw Turk's picture in the paper. He's looking for attention.
      Gus: So he wakes up and sees Turk in the paper naked, humiliated, the butt of jokes at the water cooler, and says, "Hmmm, how can I make this work for me?"

    • (Of questioning two men originally found nude)
      Shawn: The rule is all slacks all the time, no exceptions.
      Gus: I hear that. I've reached my naked man quota for the year.

    • Spa Employee: May I help you?
      Gus: Yes, I'm here for a tanning appointment.
      Spa Employee: (confused) For yourself?
      Gus: Yes, for the instant tanning process. I would like that.
      Spa Employee: But…
      Gus: What?
      Spa Employee: You…
      Gus: Yes.
      Spa Employee: I don't understand.
      Gus: Okay, look. Screw it, I can't do it. Have you seen either of these guys here?

    • Shawn: (to his father) Okay what are you doing? You're putting a negative spin on things, as usual. Look might they have a few more obstacles than your typical couple if she turns out to be a cold blooded killer, sure! What if they really fall in love dad?

    • Shawn: (to Juliet's date Kyle) I'm sensing that you're gonna face a lot of ah, um, rejection.
      Kyle: You mean work wise or...
      Shawn: No, no, not work wise. Not work wise... you know what I'm gonna go.

    • Henry: (to Young Shawn) For now, I'm going to leave you with one very simple rule. Under no circumstances, ever, ever, do you mention to a woman her age or her weight.

    • Henry: Women want you to listen to 'em Shawn. They want you to pick up every small detail, they want you to compliment them.

    • (At the Irish restaurant/bar for a speed dating session)
      Speed dating M.C.: Love is in the air, I can smell it.
      Gus: I smell cabbage.

    • Shawn: What is that?
      Henry: What?
      Shawn: Exfoliating scrub, with pumice!
      Henry: Whatever, Shawn. All I know is when I varnish my boat and I don't want it to streak I sand off a layer first, same thing goes with tanning.
      Shawn: That is the single most disturbing analogy I've ever heard in my entire life.

    • (at a tanning salon)
      Gus: He says it's always the single guys trying to keep up on their tans.
      Shawn: Single guys?
      Gus: Yea.
      Shawn: Maybe that's it. Maybe some woman is targeting singles at the salon. Question is, what kind of loser thinks getting a tan is gonna help him score a woman?
      (Henry walks out in a robe)
      Shawn: Dad?

    • Lassiter: I'm not taking fashion tips from you.
      Shawn: You need to show some chest hair, chicks dig the sternum bush.

    • Gus: (Gus wearing a bright orange shirt) You're gonna pay Shawn. You are gonna pay. Believe me.
      Shawn: No offense, but it's tough to feel threatened by you when you're wearing that shirt. Is that a Hibiscus?
      Gus: It's not my shirt. It's your dad's. He had to loan me one because mine was covered in snot tears!

    • Henry: (talking to young Shawn) Alright tell me, what's the name of this kid who hit you.
      Young Shawn: Elizabeth.

    • Juliet: I had no idea you were so serious about bowling.
      Shawn: Quite serious, quite serious. Matter of fact, LEGO wants to sponsor me this year.
      Juliet: Oh my god, that's great.
      Shawn: They also want me to wear shoes made out of LEGOs, so I'm torn.

    • Shawn: Gus, everybody wants to rub your head.

    • Lorraine: This is a speed dating first! (to Shawn and Juliet) You and you are a 100 percent match from your personality questionnaires. I smell love!
