  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Gus: We have less than twelve hours to crack the case, and you're throwing a kegger in a police officer's room!

    • Shawn: I made a list of suspects after attending Lassiter's briefing.
      Gus: He let you into his briefing?
      Shawn: He does when you're in the air shaft.

    • (concerning Lassiter's theory)
      Juliet: It does seem... very elaborate.
      McNab: And just a bit far-fetched.
      Lassiter: Are you a detective? Why are you here?
      McNab: You asked for all of us to come.
      Lassiter: Oh, well, officer, since you're such an expert on fetching, why don't you go fetch me a cup of coffee?

    • Lassiter: Listen to me, Spencer. The department's reputation is on the line with this one. If I catch you anywhere near this case, I will throw every book I can find at you.
      Shawn: What if you find the Bible? You gonna throw that too? Seems a little sacrilegious to me, don't you think?

    • Shawn: Let me gather some information, alright? Make a little headway? Then I'll have a psychic episode that blows the ears right off their skulls.

    • Juliet: (about Shawn) You're not going to shoot him are you?
      Lassiter: I haven't decided yet.

    • (Gus has caught the bridesmaid's wedding bouquet)
      Shawn: Dude, you're next!

    • Vick: (angrily, to Shawn) Okay, listen up. (quietly) I haven't seen you, and you haven't seen me. Call me as soon as you get anything.

    • Shawn: Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! She's running?! In those heels? Really?
      Gus: We have to chase her, too?
      Shawn: We have no evidence except for that ring!

    • Shawn: No Lacy, because you... have magic hands. Which I was really looking forward to on Friday.

    • Shawn: (talking to Dillon) Gus here has some questions for ya, you flaxen-haired Argonaut!

    • Shawn: Are you gonna have some cookies?
      Gus: NO!
      Shawn: Do you wanna finish my banana?
      Gus: I wanna leave.

    • Gus: So now I have a cat?
      Shawn: An orange tabby. Last Christmas you made her a Santa hat. It was adorable.
      Gus: Fantastic! I can't even have a make-believe boy cat.
      Shawn: Gus, a boy cat wouldn't serve my purposes nearly as well. The next time I need you, Pickles is having kittens.
      Gus: Pickles?
      Shawn: Mrs. Pickles is her full name, though I'm not actually sure cats can marry outside of Boston.

    • Shawn: Here, let me read your palm.
      Juliet: How 'bout just one finger?

    • Guard: Can I help you sir?
      Shawn: I'm just... listening.
      Guard: For what?
      Shawn: For what? (takes in the guard's appearance)... Lyme disease.

    • Gus: You are not going to be my best man!
      Shawn: You bet your ass I am! I've already picked out which song I'm singing at the altar.
      Gus: Really?
      Shawn: You still like Ted Nugent?

    • Lassiter: (referring to Shawn) Was this the man?
      Bellhop: No?
      Lassiter: This guy was not in my room?
      Bellhop: I've never seen him before.
      Shawn: You got a room? Why? We should have a party!
      Lassiter: Get out of my sight!

    • Shawn: Oh, Gus, we're fine. We've got the whole wedding ceremony tomorrow to solve the case.
      Gus: Oh, OK, so we can do what an entire police force can't in two hours!
      Shawn: Hmm, OK, you're right. We should totally get there half an hour early.

    • Shawn: (referring to the drunken state of the guys at the Bachelor party) I've found they're particularly forthcoming with information while in this state. For example, I've eliminated every suspect here. Although, there is a guy stealing cable and another refilling his minibar bottles with shampoo, but I don't think these are gateway crimes to a jewelry heist.

    • Shawn: You know, I think you and I could help each other.
      O'Hara: And how would that be?
      Shawn: Oh, I know things... about rings...
      O'Hara: Oh, I thought you were here for a wedding.
      Shawn: I am... ish.

    • Lassiter: Questions?
      O'Hara: Is this your only lead?
      Lassiter: His responses to my interrogation were hostile at best.
      O'Hara: Clarify hostile.
      Lassiter: Use my tone now as a guide.

    • Lassiter: (to Maxwell) I am right on schedule sir. I booked myself a suite to use as a command center. I'll stay the night if I have to.
      Atty. General Maxwell: The city's not paying for that is it?
      Lassiter: Uh... no?

    • Shawn: (to a very annoyed Lassiter) If this is some sort of hazing ritual where I'm going to end up naked in a river somewhere, I need to arrange for a ride home.

    • Shawn: You're the sister of the groom, and the maid of honor and the wedding planner!
      Karen: Correct.
      Shawn: That is so many hats!
      Karen: You should see my closet.
      Shawn: I'm hoping to!

    • Young Shawn: (referring to a game of hide and seek) But we're just playing!
      Henry: Well, play right, Shawn... or don't play at all.

    • Shawn: And Dad... Dad throws a curve ball. (has a 'psychic' moment) Nope, wait... it was a slider.

    • Gus: I think I just got a lap dance from Patrick Swayze!
      Shawn: Like an impersonator?
      Gus: No, I think it really was Patrick Swayze!

    • Gus: What are you doing?
      Shawn: Dude, I'm onto something big.
      Gus: Tailing cops? In a police station?
      Shawn: Some monumentally expensive ring just got stolen. I'm gonna get on the case
      Gus: We just got a case five minutes ago.
      Shawn: Yeah, a lame one. Stolen computers from a high school? Like you weren't falling asleep during that one.

    • Shawn: Oh. Uh, Lassiter has this insane idea that this is an elaborate heist like on par with Oceans Eleven or Thomas Crown or, uh, the one where they kill Donald Sutherland in the first 10 minutes--the remake.
