From this episode we learn that Shawn and Gus are 31 years old and Henry, Shawn's father is 53 years old, in 2008.
This is the first episode of the season that does not start with a scene from the past.
Goof:In this episode it is mentioned a number of times that the latest crime solved by Shawn and Gus (from "Shawn (and Gus) of the Dead") made the front page of the newspaper, but yet at the end of the last episode Lassiter comments that "his" big solve only made page 2, as the scandal with Saulter's affair made the front page
Goof: When Mr. Haversham says he knew Shawn was faking his psychic ability, he says he hears something at the end of the call (that came from inside his house), a voice that says "Gus." Shawn makes a big show of hanging up said phone when Gus catches him in the attic before anyone, either he or Gus, says a word.
Goof: Shawn finds a Furby on his bed. Furbys came out in 1998, and Shawn had already left home by 1995.
Psych-Out: Shawn and Gus sing "Ebony and Ivory".
Gus's Alias: Hollaback Atcha
Gus' Alias: Bruton Gaster (misspelling by the museum in photo credit)
The museum's love for Shawn dates back to the episode "Sixty Five Million Years Off" when Shawn & Gus discovered a T-Rex fossil in the course of their investigation.
Gus' Alias: Tan
Shawn's Alias: Black
Nitpick: Earlier in the episode, Lassiter tells Shawn and Gus that "one of the models couldn't confirm the spelling of his own name". Although Lassiter is clearly referring to a male model, Shawn later tells Gus that Belinda is the one that couldn't spell her own name.
Nitpick: When Gus is riding in the limo with the other models after abandoning Shawn to his father, he calls Shawn "Shawn" over the phone, rather than calling him by his cover name "Black". This conflicts with Gus' desire to maintain his cover in front of Belinda, who is sitting beside him and can hear him breaking cover.
The portraits on the Santa Barbara Monarch Lodge walls are members of the Psych crew. They include Josh Bycel and Andy Berman (writers of other episodes), Director Mel Damski, Writer Tim Meltreger and Creator and Executive Producer Steve Franks.
Trivia: In the flashback, Shawn and Gus are chanting "Kyrie eleison" during their club's meeting. This is a Greek phrase which means "Lord, have mercy".
Gus' Alias: Lavender Goums
Pineapple Spotting: While working on the set, Shawn has a pineapple Peking dumpling delivered to him.
Trivia: The telenovela's name is "Explosion Gigantesca de Romance", which in English means, "Gigantic Explosion of Romance."
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.
