Pineapple Spotting: Shawn and Gus drink pineapple Snapples while they watch the Civil War reenactment. The bottles have pictures of a pineapple.
Shawn encourages Gus to watch "ESPN. Channel 206. I'm begging you." ESPN actually is channel 206 on DirectTV.
GOOF: In the scene where Shawn and Gus are in the dentist's office with the dentist the clock in the background says 12:51, but when Lassiter walks in the clock reads 12:07.
Nitpick: Gus states that the U.S. Air Force was not created until World War I; however, the Air Force was not created until 1947. Prior to 1947 it was known as the Army Air Corps.
Nitpick: Shawn and Gus "pass the dutchie on the left hand side". Shawn, perhaps under the impression that the Germans fought in the American Civil War, mistakenly calls them "deutschies".
Trivia: The list of suspects is primarily comprised of crew members.
Psych-Out: Shawn and Gus sing "Pass the Dutchie" by Musical Youth.
Shawn: Either that man is a phenomenal actor or he's dead!
(Looking down at air hockey table)
Gus: What is this?
Shawn: The battlefield.
Gus: Based on what?
Shawn: The briefing board at the police station.
Gus: You did this from memory.
Gus: You said you saw it for two minutes.
Shawn: Right. Two whole minutes.
Gus: You got problems.
Shawn: What the hell is a Muscom?
Gus: It was a very common name of the era.
(surprised, Shawn looks at Gus)
Gus: History channel!
Shawn: ESPN, Gus. Channel 206. I'm begging you.
Shawn: (to Mahoney) Oh ye immoral man of low fiber! You should really eat more bran.
Lassiter: If I'm wrong, I'll hold a press conference where you are both cordially invited to come and say "I told you so."
Gus: Sounds fair.
Shawn: Can I wear your face wig?
Vick: (about Lassiter) Shawn, unless you can give us a name, I'm afraid he's right this time.
Shawn: Fine. I'll get you a name. (to Lassiter) And I'm going to get you a woman. (exits)
Lassiter: Afraid he's right? (Vick shrugs) This time?
Gus: (Lassiter is wearing a fake beard) Is that Lassiter? What died on his face?
Sally: (Gus is wearing his Civil War uniform and plume) I think you look dashing. Personally, I always loved the marching band.
Henry: The truth, Shawn. You're not really my son, are you? Because I gave you a watch with the inscription, "Don't Lose", and what is the first thing that you do?
Shawn: I lose the watch.
Henry: You lose the watch!
Shawn: Well, here's a news flash Dad. My birthday wasn't yesterday, okay? It was... four months ago.
Henry: Yeah, well here's a news flash for you, kid. After you were born, it took you four months to smile at me. That's when the clock started ticking.
George: I know what you're thinking, "What's wrong with this picture?", but where is it written that the ugly guy never gets the girl?
Shawn: Everywhere, man.
Lassiter: This case is personal. One of my soldiers was killed on my watch and I, not you, am going to clean it up. We clear?
Shawn: I wouldn't have gone with something as traditional as "We clear?" You could have gone foreign. "Right, compadre?" "Capisce?" Could have had a little fun with it: "You dig my jist, sweet pants?" These are just suggestions.
Shawn: Oh, come on, let me on this.
Shawn: I was there, inexplicably drawn to the scene. I was meant to solve this case. It's sorta like a miracle.
Lassiter: You have been out there every weekend when we rehearsed, and don't think I didn't see you trying to throw M&M's in the injured soldiers mouths.
Shawn: Okay, first of all, those were Skittles and they have a rainbow of flavor.
Receptionist: There is a Lieutenant Crunch here to see you.
(Shawn enters dressed in Civil War uniform)
Shawn: Actually, I've been promoted. It's Captain Crunch.

Shawn: I didn't even open the manual, it's like War and Peace. There are like 17 chapters.
War and Peace is a novel by Leo Tolstoy. It is well known for its long length.
Shawn: I was thinking Glory.
Referencing Glory, a 1989 movie about a black Civil War regiment.
Shawn: Y'know, it's not so much me as it is Mickelson; he's good.
This is a paraphrase of a line from the movie Swingers. Vince Vaughn's character is playing a hockey game and comments, "Y'know, it's not so much me as Roenick; he's good."
