  • Trivia

    • Pineapple Spotting: Shawn offers to split a pineapple with Alice Bundy.

    • Nitpick: During the scene towards the end of the episode when Shawn takes the axe from Juliet, you can see that the head of the axe has loosened half-way so if the axe had been swung a few more times with, it might have flown off.

    • Nitpick: If Juliet is in "deep cover", as she explains to Shaun, what is she doing catching up on notes in the police station at her own desk? A person in deep cover can under no circumstances have any ties to their regular life (which also would include Shaun) and least of all their police work, except through a handler.

    • Psych-Out: Dule Hill has some trouble with his line regarding the spread of the urban legend.

    • Nitpick: In Henry's flashback of him grabbing Scary Sherry and pulling her out of the window, one of the windows is pulled inside. However, in the beginning of the episode, after Shawn and Gus think she has jumped, both windows are wide open.

    • Nitpick: In the end of the episode, Gus is forgotten by Shawn, Lassiter and O'Hara inside Wispy Sunny Pines, although, according to the scenes of them entering the building, they had to pass through him in order to get out.

    • Nitpick: When about to enter Wispy Sunny Pines, O'Hara puts the phone in her bag and the bag on her shoulder, but after the camera shot shifts the bag is on her elbow.

    • Nitpick: When Shawn and Gus meet in their office after the sorority incident, Shawn is directly in front of Gus and in most shots Gus is looking ahead while talking, but there is a shot in which Gus is talking and looking to his left, although the next shot shows that Shawn didn't move.

  • Quotes

    • Gus: Okay, Shawn, listen to me. If I'm going to go back to that creepy-ass institution that I've been afraid to drive by since I was nine, there's going to be some rules and regulations.
      Shawn: Gus, this is no time for fun and–
      Gus: (interrupting) Listen, Shawn! I will not enter a room first. I will not enter a room last. I will not investigate any suspicious noises or go looking for a fuse box. And you will not, under any circumstances, leave me by myself without a weapon of some sort. Do you understand and agree to my terms?
      Shawn: –I'm not prepared to negotiate.
      Gus: Do you understand, Shawn?
      Shawn: Yes! I do, yes!

    • Goochburg: I'm afraid I'm gonna have to ask you to go screw yourself.

    • Sorority Girl #1: Ask him.
      Sorority Girl #2: You ask him.
      Gus: What... What do you want to ask me girls? Don't be nervous. I put on my pants one leg at a time just like you, hahahaha.
      Sorority Girl #1: Okay. Did you really play Bud on the Cosby Show?
      Gus: Bud?

    • Chief Vicks: I can sit here all night Betty. I've got a six month old who still has colic, I consider this a reprieve.

    • Alice: Are you a crazy person?
      Shawn: I was about to ask you the same thing, but I was going to add "who likes to make toast".

    • Lassiter: (to Goochburg) How dare you try to scale a fence in high heels.

    • Shawn: (to Alice) Wanna share a pineapple?
      Alice: I'm sorry, do I know you?
      Shawn: My name is Ichabod Fletchman, Sticky-Icky to my boys. But that's neither here, nor there.

    • Chief Vicks: Detective, I'm pretty sure I have no idea what you're talking about.
      Lassiter: The woman, the crazy woman? The half-deaf, litigating, nightmare express of a detective. Why would you put me, of all people, with her? I'm head detective.

    • Juliet: (frustrated Juliet to Shawn) Met Alice Bundy today; not a shiny happy person.

    • Juliet: Holy Shih Tzu!
      Shawn: Excuse me?
      Juliet: This nail polish is already starting to chip.

    • Shawn: What I'm going to need from you is an article of clothing preferably an undergarment.
      Juliet: Don't you usually get that from the victim?
      Shawn: I've seen it both ways. I'm going to have to take a look around to see what I feel. Starting with the bedrooms.

    • Juliet: I need a psychic to read the sorority house. Can you come by tonight?
      Shawn: Can we wear pajamas?
      Juliet: No.
      Shawn: Even better.

    • Shawn: Gus, what's the word?
      Gus: Uhh, that would be mum.

    • Shawn: I can't believe this.
      Gus: We actually started an urban legend!
      Shawn: That's dope!

      The Omega Moo's are the "misfit" sorority allied with the "Tri-Lambda" fraternity in Revenge of the Nerds.
