Shawn and Gus investigate a man who has disappeared from a local retirement community.
Gus' Alias: Knick-Knack
Shawn's Alias: Dr. Howser
Henry's Alias: Talmudge McGullagher
Trivia: Shawn references the Azaria Chamberlain disappearance ("[I've tried] the 'dingo ate my baby' routine"). On 17 August 1980, a ten-week old baby disappeared during a camping trip to Uluru. Her parents, Lindy and Michael Chamberlain, stated that she was abducted by a dingo.
Trivia: Shawn states that he knows the day of the Santa Barbara Marathon because it's the same day as Val Kilmer's birthday. Val Kilmer was born 31 December 1959.
Lassiter: Detective O'Hara is an officer of the law. She is a competent investigator, efficient with her paperwork, and maintains her workspace in a clean and orderly fashion. But she is, above all things, not hot.
Lassiter: Ahh but that's how it starts, one minute they're destroying public property and the next thing you know they're shooting cops.
Shawn: Well, at least that gives us the "how". Now we just gotta figure out the "why", which reminds me, Gus, will you please get us those tickets for The Who?
(Gus and Shawn point to each other to acknowledge Gus' sharp comeback.)
Shawn: You sure you want to park this close, Dad? We're almost a quarter of a mile away.
Henry: Shawn, we're exactly where we should be to get a read on the situation.
Shawn: I can literally see the curvature of the Earth from here.
Shawn: A candy striper. Really? I didn't even know they made those uniforms for men.
Gus: They just started. There was a lawsuit.
Shawn: I'm just saying, aim higher.
Shawn: Hello, I am Doctor Howser. I am filling in today. This is my personal candy striper, Knick Knack.
Shawn: He is from Guam. We will be instructing you. Let's begin. You. Impress me.
Shawn: Bam! (holds out visitor's badge) Say it with me. Vis-it-or's badge!!
Gus: Uh huh. Uh huh. Do something. I dare you.
Security Guard: I'll be watching you.
Shawn: We'll be getting watched.
Henry: I'll be your Talmadge McGrauder.
Henry: I'll be all those guys, and I'll have this case solved by lunch.
Shawn: Considering they eat lunch here at 10:15, I'm gonna say we'll have it done by 9:45.
Lassiter: You know that is a brilliant theory but, what you've failed to take in account is that it's five degrees hotter today than the same day last year.
Shawn: Frogs can't swallow with their eyes open. It's true. (Everyone stares) I'm sorry I thought we were offering useless pieces of information.
Medical Student: John Doe admitted two days ago with severe hypotension causing low brain perfusion. Also suffered inter-cranial bleed from syncope and falling down.
Shawn: Do you want to help this patient or not?
Medical Student: Of course sir.
Shawn: Then speak to me like I'm ten years old.
Medical Student: He had a sudden drop in blood pressure which deprived his brain of blood. He also suffered a contusion and small cerebral hemorrhage.
Shawn: Then speak to me like I'm five.
Medical Student: His blood pressure went boom and his brain got an auwe.
Henry: 6:00 am, sharp.
Shawn: No, it's too early.
Gus: How about 9:00?
Henry: 9:00 is a little late.
Shawn: C'mon, guys, let's be reasonable. Just split the difference, okay? Call it 11:15.
Henry: 6:00 it is.
Shawn: Touch it, just use your fingertip.
Gus: I am not touching an electrified fence, Shawn!
Guard: How about I touch it?
Shawn: I don't think I like the way that sounds.
Shawn: Can you check for a John Doe please? Actually, can you check all the "doe-s"? Taekwon, cookie, play, do-si...
Juliet: Why don't you tell me why your acting out?
Lassiter: I'm not acting out! He started it!
Juliet: I was talking to the kid.
Shawn: Always hating on the Indians.
Gus: I'm not hating on the Indians, I'm hating on you.
Shawn: We're gonna use my Indian blood.
Gus: You can't get Indian blood by working in the casino.
Shawn: Maybe you can't.
