  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: In reference to the bar where the shots were fired, it is first a "known cop bar" according to Lassiter, and later a "sports bar." A bar is usually known for one thing or the other.

    • Psych-out: Gag reels from the scene at the Psych office and the third scene at the restaurant when Shawn and Gus return alone.

    • Nitpick: When Gus can not find the cordless phone to order pizza, it is said that they will have to eat Doritos for dinner instead. Why didn't Shawn, Gus, or Jules order the pizza on their cell phone? Throughout the episode we see that each one of them owns one.

    • Pineapple Spotting: The pineapple is on Gus' nightstand.

  • Quotes

    • Gus: There were lots of things that were weird. Like your irrational fear of tassels!
      Shawn: Irrational?
      Gus: Yes.
      Shawn: What purpose do tassels serve on shoes, Gus?
      Gus: I don't know!
      Shawn: I do, evil.

    • Shawn: I don't lose things. I place things in locations which later elude me.

    • Henry: Gus, let me ask you something. What was the very first thing you did right after the shooting?
      Gus: I called my folks to tell them I was okay.
      Henry: And what's the first thing he did? (points to Shawn)
      Gus: He ate a banana.
      Henry: You ate a banana.
      Shawn: I sure did. You know why? Because it makes me think of you. Because you're my big ol' papa monkey!

    • Shawn: Lassiter has so many enemies, it literally could've been anyone.
      Gus: His landlord.
      Shawn: His ex-wife.
      Gus: His mailman.
      Shawn: Bigfoot.

    • Shawn: Fact!
      Lassiter: You say the word again, I'll punch you in the face!
      Shawn: Truth…

    • Shawn: Little known fact, Bigfoot? He only wore size 10.
