    • Psych-Out: Henry, per his request, gets in on the action, but singing "Feels Good" with Shawn and Gus isn't what he had in mind.

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Shawn: You, me, Burgess Meredith, Hume Cronyn, Nipsey Russell, deserted island. Who are you going to sleep with?
      Juliet: Wait… so it's you or a bunch of dead guys?
      Shawn: Fair. I'll give you Scatman Crothers.
      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!
      Juliet: I need a drink.
      Shawn: I gotta pee.

    • Episode Title: "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves Me… "
      The phrase above is recited while plucking petals from a flower as an old game to see whether or not someone loves the person. If the last petal is plucked on "He loves me," then he does. If it is plucked on "He loves me not," he doesn't.

    • Shawn: (to Gus, after talking to Henry) I'm with you on the aliens thing. They're here and they swapped out my father with José Eber.
      José Eber is a famous hairstylist who created many influential styles in the 70's, 80's, and 90's, and remains a leading trendsetter in hair and fashion today.

    • Shawn: (to Henry at the tanning salon) Well, George Hamilton, we're on a case.
      George Hamilton, the American film and television actor, was perhaps most famous for his debonair style and his perfect and perpetual suntan.

    • Shawn: (to Marvin) In your funny accent, will you say, "Magically Delicious"?
