Shawn and Gus take on academia as lecturers at a school for the gifted where two students suspect a teacher of murder – they just don't know who's been murdered or the murderer's identity. At the precinct, Juliet lobbies hard for lead position on the next case, and Lassiter hands her a "gimme". The same case Gus and Shawn are working.moreless
Henry: I can't believe he passed himself off as a teenager for this thing.
Shawn: I don't know dad, you slap a wig on you, you're a spitting image of yourself when I was a kid.
Nitpick: When one of Shawn's students tries to prove Shawn isn't a psychic at all he writes 6.0221415×10^23 atoms/mol at the black board and asks what that is based on his thoughts. However, different shots of the blackboard show 6.0021415x10^23 atoms/mol and 6.0221415x10^23 atoms/mol.
Juliet: Seriously, are you guys working my case?
Shawn: Case? What case? No, no, no, they've been after me for a while now to teach a class.
Lassiter: (to Juliet) What do we say?
Juliet: Hmm? Oh right.
(Juliet clears her throat and points her finger)
Juliet: Stay out of our way and don't get involved, Spencer.
Shawn: Gödel. That's almost pronounced like "girdle" because of the omelet on the "o".
Juliet: I'm pretty sure that's an umlaut.
Shawn: SXY. Apparently our perp is so sexy, he felt the need to die-cast it onto steel and wear it on his lapel.
Gus: That's not an S, that's the integral sign in calculus for the area of the curve XY.
Shawn: I can sense you're lying! The spirits tell me your little pants are on fire.
Shawn: (talking to student with a drink) Hold it there, Doogie, two questions: Where can I get a juice box, and does it come in Grape-ilicious?
(Shawn coughing heavily after opening an old file cabinet)
Gus: What are you doing?
Shawn: Getting the plague apparently.
Juliet: Hi, SBPD. Can I please get the class schedule for these students? Thank you.
Lassiter: Lesson #3: Don't say "please", don't say "thank you". And definitely don't say "hi". Spirit Squad auditions were over ten years ago. You're an authority figure; act like it.
Juliet: Ever heard, "You catch more flies with honey?"
Lassiter: Lesson #4: Don't quote cornpone country bumpkin sayings to your commanding officer.
Juliet: How many lessons are there?
Shawn: A chance to go undercover in high school, à la 21 Jump Street. Obviously I'm Johnny Depp. Sadly, you can only pass for Holly Robinson.
Gus: Why can't I be Richard Grieco?
Shawn: Why would you want to be Richard Grieco?
Gus: Look at this class. You're all a bunch of dudes!
Student: Umm, we're girls.
Shawn: That's awkward.
Juliet: Guess what today is?
Lassiter: It's not one of those touchy-feely holidays invented by card companies to goad me into buying a present for somebody I couldn't care less about is it?
Shawn: Clearly, we have to get inside. What's our cover gonna be? Wait, I've got it. (pointing to Gus) You're the preppy jerk who's dating the girl I'm in love with. I'm the lonely cafeteria guy who mows lawns and has a heart of gold.
Gus: Let it go, Shawn. You can't pass for a teenager.
The scenes at "Meitner School" were filmed at David Thompson Secondary School in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
