Goof: When the Chief asks Lucinda to tell Shawn to leave, she opens and closes the door to the Chief's office, but in the next shot, when Lassiter comes out, the door is open.
Goof: During Gus' introduction, when Shawn walks into Gus' office, the door is open and closed between shots.
Pineapple Spotting: Shawn finds one in Gus' kitchen and asks if he should slice it up.
Psych-out: Shawn channels Michael Jackson as he and Gus perform a riveting duet of "Man in the Mirror".
Trivia: Shawn's dad once had him arrested (when he was 18) for stealing a car. As the story goes, Shawn was out with a girl, who "had a reputation" and Shawn's dad was trying to "teach [him] a lesson".
Trivia: Shawn has had 57 jobs since high school (58 counting Psych), including in an acupuncture clinic and driving the Weinermobile.
Gus: (as he and Shawn are approaching a house) How should we introduce ourselves? Don't say psychic! They'll shut you off. Say something vague like Alternative Tactics Division.
Shawn: How about the Bureau of Magic and Spell-casting?
Shawn: (using binoculars) What is the magnification of these things?
Shawn: Okay, we really need to stop at Wal-Mart on the way home.
(Shawn and Gus run off with Katarina's bag and back to their car)
Shawn: Gus, you locked the car?!
Gus: It's a bad neighborhood!
Shawn: Go buy the bag.
Gus: What, you want a souvenir of your ineptitude?
Shawn: I need to get a better look inside the bag.
Gus: I'm not going in there. That guy wants to kill us.
Shawn: Gus, this guy works in a thrift store, OK? He's a big furry-hearted good Samaritan.
Thrift Store Guy: I've gone to jail for less than you.
Gus: Jail's no fun. I'll tell you that much.
Thrift Store Guy: Oh, you've been.
Gus: Once. In Monopoly.
Shawn: (placing money in the bag) So, we've got five stacks going across. You figure four going longways. Ten stacks in each pile based on the wear and the indentation. I don't know, depending on the denomination, this could easily be five million dollars.
Gus: You're kidding.
Shawn: Yeah, give or take.
Gus: You got that from a groove on the side.
Shawn: Oh, come on, Gus. Any small child could've figured that out.
Lucinda: You here to scope out the new meter maids?
Shawn: No, I am here to see you.
Lucinda: Not interested.
Shawn: I know. You have someone special. He's married and/or separated.
Shawn: (picking up a gun) Wow, they're so much lighter when they're filled with water.
Gus: Shawn, we need to go.
Shawn: Not yet.
Gus: I'm about to throw up on a Turkish carpet.
Shawn: No, you're not.
Gus: It's in my esophagus!
Shawn: Second door to the left. Turn on the fan, and flush.
Lassiter: (after Shawn identifies the killer "psychically") Seriously, how?
Shawn: I wish I knew.
Gus: You solved one mystery, and now you're renting office space?
Shawn: Gus, I've solved a bunch of mysteries! For instance, the mystery of who kept stealing your newspaper. Answer: me! The mystery of what we're doing this weekend. Hint: it involves dragsters.
Gus: What's your dental plan?
Shawn: Don't get cavities.
Gus: Health plan?
Shawn: Same, but with hepatitis and shingles.
Lassiter: If I cut him open and leave him out here, you can not testify against me.
Shawn: Come with me.
Gus: Uh, no. I'm never doing anything blindly with you again, I learned that at the Mexican border. Twice.
Shawn: I have a job for you.
Gus: I already have a job.
Shawn: They're paying you to play video games?
Gus: How do you do that?
Shawn: Come on, left hand space bar, right hand arrow keys. Gus, you should ask me a challenging question every once in awhile, just for kicks.
Police Operator: And is there anything else tonight?
Shawn: No, that's gonna do it. Well, actually the tags on the news van have expired, but that's completely unrelated.
Waitress: I guess I know what you're going to be when you grow up.
Young Shawn: Oh, I'm never going to grow up, Ma'am.
Shawn: Give me some money.
Gus: Get your own money!
Shawn: Gus, I'll give it back... seriously, this is all you carry?
Gus: You named your fake detective agency Psych? Why didn't you just call it "Hey, we're fooling you and the police department; hope we don't make a mistake and somebody dies because of it"?
Shawn: First of all, Gus, that name is entirely too long; it would never fit on the window. And secondly the best way you convince people you're not lying to them is to tell them you are!
Shawn: (after getting Katarina's father arrested) So, you think this pretty much blows my chances with Katarina?
Shawn: This one takes the cake.
Gus: Oh yeah? Better than the acupuncture clinic?
Shawn: I didn't realize experience was necessary.
Shawn: I got the information because...I'm psychic.
Lassiter: Get him out of here!
Shawn: Oh boy! (Leans against the door, looks at Officer Allen) Your grandmother would be so proud.
Allen: You spoke to her?
Shawn: I did. She's safe, comfortable. She wants you to stop spending all your money on those charlatans.
Allen: The palm readers?
Shawn: The palm readers.
Barry: Okay, just to be clear, um, you're claiming to be a psychic, Mr. Spencer.
Shawn: (Moves his hands around until one is pointing at Lassiter and the other at Barry) How else would I know that you two are sleeping together? 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1... (Turns to Officer McNab) When's the wedding?
McNab: May 3rd - wait, how'd you know?
Shawn: I'm getting dance lessons for a wedding reception and you are getting good!
McNab: Wow. That's amazing!
Lassiter: Oh come on, who is buying this!
(Allen, McNab, and a guy in a nearby jail cell raise their hands)
Lassiter: You solved all these crimes - what was it - watching the local channel 8 news reports?
Shawn: All right, I confess, that's not true. Sometimes I watch channel 5. I prefer channel 8. The weather girl? Adorable.
Lassiter: So you're telling us that you can read guilt off of TV interviews?
Shawn: Can't you?
Lassiter: Don't you try and trivialize police work.
Shawn: I think you're doing a bang-up job of that all by yourself.
Shawn: The arresting officer was my father. He was trying to teach me a lesson.
Lassiter: Did you learn it?
Shawn: I learned I hated my father, so sure.
Lassiter: You have a criminal record.
Shawn: I was 18.
Lassiter: Oh, 18? Well that makes it okay, let me just scratch this out.
Lassiter: See, your information was good. So good, it could only have come from the inside.
Shawn: The inside of what?
Lassiter: Where were you the night of the last robbery?
Shawn: I was robbing a stereo shop. (laughs) I wasn't. I don't know, I guess I was doing the same thing you were doing: not solving crime.
Lassiter: You're not helping your case here.
Shawn: My case? ...Wait, wait, wait. I'm actually a suspect?
Lassiter: Oh, you're our lead suspect.
Shawn: I gave you the guy!
Lassiter: He had a partner.
Shawn: I have to find that guy? I'm confused. When do you start chipping in?
Gus: You're dating a murderer!
Shawn: Not exclusively.
Shawn: This is a great plan! Camden McCallum deserves to be commended.
Gus: (sarcastically) Maybe you should date him too!
Shawn: Maybe I will!
Lassiter: Officer Allen, book him!
Shawn: Oh come on! Cuffs? For the walk back to the lobby?
