  • Shawn and Gus on a funny and clever treasure hunt! Great episode!

    Its strange to me that there has, so far, been no Young Gus. I don't understand why they would get rid of Young Gus. I immediately liked the new format of going back in time to reveal what had happened. I think it's cool that they experimented and I think it worked well. I liked Steven Weber right away in the flashback, and even more in Henry's house. He fit right in with Shawn, Gus and Henry. I loved when he gave Shawn and Gus the masks and they played with them like children would. That was cute. It was extremely funny when Shawn, Henry and Gus first got to Henry's house and realized someone was inside. They burst into the house and Gus burst in with a hose, screaming. So funny! A favorite part of mine is when the guys are trapped and Gus doesn't want to use his work phone to call for help. He was basically saying that he'd rather die than let Shawn use any more of his minutes. LOL Shawn had used up a lot of his minutes waiting on hold for concert tickets. Ha ha ha

    Another part that I liked a lot was Juliet's little tirade at the police station. It was cool to see her be "hard ass" but I loved Shawn's reaction when she was done yelling at him: "Oh my God. That was so hot." LOL Another funny part that involved Juliet was when she mentioned the best diet ever, where she lost three pounds after being sick with salmonella poisoning. I am starting to look at Shawn's memory as a super power. LOL It was so cool when he went "back in time" to discover the location of the bell tower. I thought that was awesome. I was really annoyed when Shawn handed "the treasure" to Uncle Jack. I thought he was being naive. I should have known better. :-) I'm happy that our guys got to keep some of the treasure, while deciding to donate the rest. There is something that puzzled me about the episode. How could Shawn see through the one-way glass at the police station? That part had me laughing. Here are some favorite quotes:
    "It's not that we need you. We want you. Plus...we need you." Shawn
    "I know this probably isn't the right time to say this but dude we're probably going to get to ride in a helicopter." Shawn
    "How about a text message? All I need to write is OMG LOL." Shawn
    "Don't call me home skillet." Gus
    "I don't know where you guys went to partner college but I'm pretty sure you guys aren't supposed to shoot your partner." Shawn
    "Are you kidding? That's like asking me if i want my own jet pack. Or if I ever wanted to be a koala bear." Shawn
    "I was the only eight year old kid who knew what a trifecta was." Gus
    "Don't listen to him, Uncle Jack. He's a dream killer." Shawn What a great episode!!
