Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Shawn Spencer was drilled from childhood by his father, a police officer, to have a strict attention to detail and other detective skills. As a result, Shawn effectively possesses a Photographic Memory and the ability to observe and put together clues too subtle for the average person to pick up.Unfortunately (and probably also at least partly as a result of the above), as an adult Shawn is equal parts prankster and slacker with no real desire to apply himself in any normal occupation. So, he employs his skills to identify criminals and their methods in the news and calls crime tip lines for the reward. This backfires on him when he is arrested as an accomplice. The police are suspicious of how good his tips are, believing that he must have been involved with the crimes.In order to avoid jail time and continue his lucrative-but-lazy crimebusting, Shawn tells the police he's a psychic. After a demonstration on several of the officers in the Santa Barbara Police Department, he is allowed on a case. After solving it, he opens up a detective agency and, to the perturbation of certain members of the Santa Barbara Police Department, Shawn and his best friend Burton "Gus" Guster help the police solve crimes assigned to them by Chief Karen Vick.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The two frequently collaborate with the real detectives Carlton "Lassie" Lassiter and Juliet "Jules" O'Hara. Lassiter finds Shawn unbearably annoying, though he eventually grows to respect him, while Juliet is more civil to them, and eventually becomes Shawn's Romantic Interest. Shawn's retired father Henry usually makes at least one appearance an episode, sometimes just in the Flashback opening. Being that Henry taught him his skills, he is one of the few in on the con.Psych is a show that doesn't take itself too seriously. Shawn and Gus frequently talk about their childhood, which includes numerous references to The '80s and (increasingly) The '90s. With Shawn attempting to appear as a psychic whenever giving The Summation, he ends up doing comically-inappropriate things when identifying a killer.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The show originally ran from 2006 to 2014. Continued fan interest has led to Psych being revived as a series of TV movies. There is no set release schedule, however, as each is produced whenever the cast can spare the time. The first movie, a Christmas Special simply entitled Psych the Movie, aired in December 2017. A second movie, Psych 2: Lassie Come Home premiered in July 2020 on Peacock.Not to be confused with The Mentalist on CBS, a show with a similar premise that has been the frequent target of Take Thats and lampshading within the series. Especially not to be confused with Monk, which featured an obsessive/compulsive who effectively possesses a Photographic Memory and the ability to observe and put together clues too subtle for the average person to pick up, and which was a USA Network original series, just as Psych was. Because we all know a television network would never stoop so low as to copy one of its own hits nor use the series finale to indicate Psych and Monk are set in the same universe.

Finale Season
 Psych / int_110a7d7
comment
Finale Season: The last season was billed as the last, and makes strides to wrap up the series. Chief Vick is briefly replaced, but ends up accepting a job as Chief in San Francisco. Lassiter was demoted to uniformed officer by the replacement Chief, but ends up as the new Chief after proving himself to the Mayor, and learns Marlowe is pregnant. Juliet follows Vick to SF, and she and Shawn do a long distance relationship until he decides to follow her in the Grand Finale, with Gus following shortly after. Later followed up with a movie, however.

He runs onto a public beach, jumps into the water, knocks a civilian off of a Jet Ski and zooms off to safety. All while having a conversation with Juliet on the phone.

Control Freak
 Psych / int_11ad560b
comment
Control Freak: Lassiter, who is also highly competitive and the biggest naysayer on the force as to Shawn's psychic talents. Henry also fits this trope, since he was drilling Shawn in cop rules and skills since early childhood, and informed Shawn once that Shawn wanted to be a cop (despite Shawn disagreeing). Even after Shawn has been working as a consultant for the police for four years and has solved literally dozens of cases, Henry insists on riding him every step of the way, or flat-out refusing to hire him because he does not act like a proper detective, which he is not. True, Shawn is lazy and often needs pushing, but it is still excessive insistence on controlling his process given Shawn's demonstrable effectiveness. Not just with Shawn though. In the episode involving the dinosaur, a psychologist appears seemingly to deal with Shawn's attitude with Henry behind him, only for the end to reveal he was there to deal with Henry's need for control. Henry flipped out in anger. Lassiter also once went fishing with Henry and Lassiter was severely annoyed by Henry lecturing his fishing technique for the whole three hours. He admits that he understands a bit now why Shawn is the way he is.

Arbitrary Skepticism: For some reason, the guy that openly claims to be a psychic is a nut after he is quoted as believing a UFO sighting. Justified by the fact that Shawn regularly "proves" his psychic credentials with close to a 100% success, and, even then, Lassiter is still skeptical.

comment
Salt and Pepper: Shawn is white, Gus is black. Mocked in the "Ebony and Ivory" season 3 teaser. Not to mention the fashion show episode, where they masquerade as Black and Tan, two (made-up) supermodels. Shawn's Black. Gus is Tan. How dare you assume otherwise. Lampshaded in "Shawn Gets the Yips" when Shawn assigns all the characters items found in a restaurant: And in "High Top Fade Out" when Gus creates the false last names "Brown" for himself and "White" for Shawn. It's debatable whether Shawn's reaction was over this trope or the lack of creativity compared to Shawn's false last names.

Genre Savvy
 Psych / int_1777688d
comment
Genre Savvy: Not surprisingly, Gus has very stringent requirements for entering any horror-movie-like situation. Much of the humor of the show revolves around (sometimes rather selective) genre-savviness from various characters (Gus, as mentioned, often being the biggest source). In season 4, Shawn and Gus have become genre savvy to the point of arguing which movie the situation derives from on at least two occasions. In "Murder? ... Anyone? ... Anyone? ... Bueller?", Shawn spends much of the episode wondering if he should be comparing events to The Breakfast Club or Pretty in Pink. He eventually concludes he's been looking at the wrong John Hughes movie. In Tuesday the 17th, Shawn is acutely aware that they've stumbled into a slasher film scenario and keeps advising people to not make the same mistakes. No one listens.

Artistic License – Biology
 Psych / int_18aff462
comment
Artistic License – Biology: Zigzagged in the episode 'Santabarbaratown', where Shawn notes that color blindness is passed down from father to daughter. Since colour blindness is linked to the x chromosome, it will always be passed down from father to daughter note since men only have one X to pass down, and a colorblind male has an X with the mutation. Expressing this mutation, however, is fairly rare in females as they receive an X from their mother as well. So while a female being colorblind means her father must also be colorblind, a colorblind father does not guarantee the daughter will be colorblind. She also has to get a colorblind X from her mother, who may or may not be colorblind herself.

Always Someone Better
 Psych / int_19d1c1ae
comment
Always Someone Better: Subverted eventually. Various characters try to match wits with Shawn either through Criminal Mind Games, The Perfect Crime or a rival investigator (one time a rival psychic detective who was on to his Hyper-Awareness scam). None have proven to be better than him, although he has had set-backs along the way. Even Henry, who trained him on how to do this, doesn't have quite the same talent. In the final season, with Juliet going with the Chief to San Francisco, the department ends up with new head detective Besty Brannigan. While just as quirky as Shawn (she has a peppy and light-hearted attitude and enjoys knitting and other activities, making things for her nephew), she is also just as smart as he is while also being as ruthless as Lassiter, even sharing the same type of gun. We never actually see how she works (though its hinted to be somewhat like Lassiter), but in the penultimate episode, we see her manage to nab the criminal before Shawn (albeit, Shawn was hindered with Gus suffering nightmares at the time.) Nonetheless, it's clear that they come to the exact same conclusions, but with her being an actual police officer, she can move through the evidence and identify suspects without Shawn having to do his shtick.

Celebrity Resemblance: In "Scary Sherry: Bianca's Toast", Gus is twice mistaken for the actor who played Bud in The Cosby Show (his name's Deon Richmond, by the way). This happens fairly often for people watching the show, too. It's given several references throughout the series after this point, including an episode where Shawn introduces Gus as Deon Richmond, much to Gus' dismay.

Reality Ensues: In the season 3 premiere, Gus is confronted by his superior because of all the times he skipped out on work to work on cases and nearly has to quit Psych to keep his job, until Shawn is able to blackmail a higher up to get Gus' boss off his back. In one episode, Lassie is framed for killing a criminal being put in eyewitness protection; when investigated, an Internal Affairs agent brings up his separation with his wife, his rivalry with the victim, and the fact that he discharged his gun in multiple inappropriate moments. This all makes him look guiltier. In the season 4 "Mr. Yin/Yang" episode, Shawn's girlfriend, Abigail and Juliet are kidnapped by Yin and placed in death traps. After they are rescued, Abigail breaks up with Shawn because she doesn't want to be endangered again by his enemies and Juliet is traumatized after nearly dying and gets a desk job for a few months in order to recover. In the season 7 premiere, Gus and Shawn sit on a mine hidden in their couch and have to sit for a long time until bomb squad arrives and defuses the bomb; when they get up, they suffer from "jelly legs" after blood was cut off from their legs due to sitting for so long. Later, Shawn tries to pull down the bad guy's house down by chaining the Blueberry (Gus' blue Toyota Yaris/Echo) to the house's support beam and wrecking it Lethal Weapon 2-style. However this fails for two reasons: 1.) The car used in the movie to pull down the house was a heavy duty pickup-truck; instead Shawn and Gus used a small hatchback style car, which breaks in half due to not being supported for that kind of force. 2.) The house's support beam was reinforced to the ground by concrete and not to a loose hillside. Juliet breaks up with Shawn when she finds out that he isn't psychic; given the trust issues she has with her father, step-father, and her brother, it makes sense why she's so upset. In the following episode, Shawn and Gus attempt to calmly get the villain of the week (a woman who killed three people because she didn't want to be sent back to her abusive step-father) to surrender, because they feel sympathetic for her due to what she when through; she seemly complies, only to attempt to murder Shawn and Gus because despite having a tragic past, the woman is a mentally unstable psychopath who does not want to go to jail. Juliet gives Shawn an ultimatum to confess to Chief Vick that he's not a psychic or she won't get back together with him. After the episode's case, Shaw proceeds to do just that, only for Juliet to stop him and lie to Vick that Shawn was going to take the blame for something she did during the case; Juliet later talks to Shawn and tells him that what she asked him to do was unfair and selfish since the fallout would ruin Shawn, Gus, and many other people's careers and reopen all the cases Shawn was involved in. Still, despite understanding Shawn why lied to her, she wants to work out their trust issues before they get back together again. Gus quits his job after he becomes tired of his boss' abusive beheavior to him and his co-workers. However, Gus then realizes that he needs to get his job back since he has to pay his (and Shawn's) bills and he can't wait to look for another job. This ends up with Gus finding his boss' corpse and accidentally messing up his office, making it look like he killed him.

Shawn launches a similar stream of euphemisms when Lassiter doesn't understand that the bartender's partner is his boyfriend (rather than his business partner) in "Last Night Gus". Given how much time Lassiter spends with Shawn and Gus, it's not that surprising he doesn't get it at first.

Obstructive Bureaucrat: Henry becomes something like this and Head-in-the-Sand Management to Shawn and Gus when he becomes the outside consultant liaison. A bit of Fridge Logic considering he knows Shawn's abilities and Shawn's high success rate though at the same time, he usually is only trying to rein in Shawn's wackiness. By showing extreme reluctance in hiring Shawn at all in the stated belief that his antics - or simply not acting like a real detective, which he isn't - will make him a mockery... despite Shawn having solved dozens of high profile cases a year for five years and having toned down his theatrics considerably. Henry is not one to let someone rest on their laurels to maintain a good record, that's for sure. He's proactive in motivating them, in his own... unique way. A popular belief is that Henry kept getting in the way in a misguided attempt to get Shawn to be more of a detective, and less of a fake psychic. It doesn't really work.

Wrong Genre Savvy A promo features Lassiter thinking he is in a serious detective drama, complete with sexual tension between him and O'Hara a la Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Lassiter was convinced he and Despereaux were locked in a massive cat and mouse chase with the thief trying his best to outwit the dogged detective. Instead, Despereaux has no idea who the hell Lassiter is. Gus thinks he's the main character. Looking for a (suspected) vampire:

Gentleman Thief

comment
Gentleman Thief: Pierre Despereaux in the season 4 premiere, "Extradition: British Columbia". Subverted in that he's not really a thief but an abettor to insurance fraud. The owners of fine art would steal them from themselves and blame the crime on Desperaux. However, as "Extradition II" shows, he's every bit as capable as he originally claimed.

This Bear Was Framed: This is a somewhat regular thing, where it seems like once every few seasons there is an episode where an animal is falsely accused of being "the killer" and in danger of being "put down" for it (in one it was a panther, another the trope-naming polar bear, and in still another a shark), but the series sleuths uncover evidence that a person did the killing and then covered it up by making it look like a death by animal attack.

Nigel St. Nigel in "American Duos" is a would-be case of this; he manages to survive the episode, but the fact that he's a hyper-critical, snooty, disdainful and arrogant British asshole means that finding who wants to kill him isn't particularly easy, since there's a list of suspects practically queuing up.

Only Sane Man: Juliet in "This Episode Sucks," which she exasperatedly points out almost word for word early in the investigation. Other characters tend to revolve in and out of this trope, depending on who has the Crazy Ball this week, but Chief Vicks is the other most likely canidate. In "Not Even Close, Encounters", Shawn and Gus debate which of them is supposed to be holding the "sanity bag" in their relationship when they both become convinced that aliens were involved in the Case of the Week.

Unknown Rival: In Despereaux's first appearance, Lassiter talks about how he and the thief have been in a cat-and-mouse game for years, Lassiter devoting much of his free time to tracking Despereaux down and just one step behind. When the thief is finally arrested, Lassiter is there to gloat on how he's finally the victor in their grand game. Needless to say, he's utterly deflated and more than a bit hurt when a baffled Despereaux states he has no idea who Lassiter is.

Cop/Criminal Family: A variation; Henry Spencer was a respected, by-the-book cop, while his son Shawn has technically been defrauding the police department for years by claiming to be psychic and selling his services. While he has genuinely good intentions and has actually done good work, if anyone ever managed to prove his deception, it would cause a lot of damage to the department. The same series also has Jules, a good cop whose dad and brother were both criminals.

Lampshade Hanging
 Psych / int_2a090d00
comment
Lampshade Hanging: This is incredibly common in the series. Just count the number of times it's mentioned on this page. In the pilot, Shawn states "Everything you need is right in front of you. You just have to pay attention," as he pulls a lampshade out of a trash can. In Bollywood Homicide, Shawn brags to his girlfriend "I solve a case every week. And usually one around Christmas." In Let's Get Hairy, after Shawn protests to Henry that he has a case to solve, Henry remarks that Shawn has a case every week. In an episode from season one, Shawn declares that he will have the case solved Friday by 10pm. During Season One, the show aired on Fridays at 9 PM. The season 3 episode "Any Given Friday Night at 10PM, 9PM Central". In the latest season Gus lampshades the face Shawn makes before the special effect highlights whatever Shawn noticed. In If You're So Smart, Why Are You Dead?, Shawn tells his father "slap a wig on you, it's the spitting image of yourself 20 years ago". The same actor plays him in the flashbacks. Wearing a wig. "Viagra Falls" not only lampshades old buddy cop show, it also lampshades Psych itself and the various gags the show uses. From "He Dead": Shawn's younger self in "The Polarizing Express" lampshades the casting of different actors to play him from "week to week."

 Psych / int_319e4a2f
comment
Even Evil Has Standards: Several examples of Red Herrings that are still criminals. "A Very Juliet Episode" involves a powerful mob boss who was convicted of murdering a federal agent, and whose wrath was keeping Jules' ex-boyfriend in witness protection. Turns out he didn't do it: he prides himself on honor and especially on not killing and doesn't want his children to grow up thinking he was a murderer. Likewise, he himself is not after Jules' ex, though he can say nothing about those who would kill the man independently to gain his favor. He ends up hiring Shawn and Gus to find the real killer in exchange for making sure Jules' ex is never troubled again. Desperaux likewise draws the line far below killing, though he is not above a little High-Altitude Interrogation. The duo of robbers in "Barbie And Clyde" are perfectly fine with lying, cheating, robbing and swindling folks out of their money and possessions, but likewise draw the line at killing. Also, they're against animal cruelty and digital piracy.

Attention Whore: Shawn, natch. That his 'psychic' abilities also conveniently enable him to solve crimes in a showy fashion where all attention is focussed on him is most likely not a complete coincidence. In each of the 'musical' promos, Shawn and Gus recreate a famous 1980s music videonote Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder's "Ebony and Ivory", Hall and Oates's "Private Eyes", Simple Minds's "Don't You Forget About Me" only for it to gradually devolve into both men trying to push the other out of the way so that they can be the focus of attention.

Once an Episode: Shawn giving Gus an absurd pseudonym. Lampshaded in a recent episode where Shawn introduces Gus to a convicted killer using their full real names. Averted in the season finale, where Shawn, knowing that it's going to be his last case, chokes: Also averted in one episode, where Gus is with Lassiter instead of Shawn; he's thrown when Lassiter introduces him by his proper name. In "Feet, Don't Kill Me Now", Lassiter introduces Gus by his full name. Gus's reaction makes him ask what's wrong, to which Gus says that he's not used to being introduced by his real name. A pineapple appears somewhere in every episode. They actually had a sweepstakes which you could enter by identifying where the pineapple appeared in a given episode. Fist bumps.

They Fight Crime!: As silly as the premise is of "guy pretends to be psychic, people buy it, so he makes a living at it," that's the premise here. It is parodying TV psychics who in their turn are based on real life "psychics" who make a living of it, including being hired by the police.

Amazon Chaser: Lassie, apparently. He looks EXTREMELY proud when he finds out his fiancée Marlowe used Muay Thai to beat up the thugs holding her and then jumped out of a window to escape. When he later thinks she climbed out of a very high window and shimmied along a very small window ledge to the fire escape, he proudly announces "Our children are going to be Seal Team Six members!" Then, when Lassiter rushes in to save her and she hits him, he says "Was that a spinning back fist? God, I love you" and gives her a Big Damn Kiss.

Psychopathic Womanchild: Marlowe seems to have transformed into this since her incarceration (combination of types D and F). It's paid off handsomely: she won the respect of quite a few of Santa Barbara County's most vicious female criminals (even remaining friends with one of them after her parole) and is now an accomplished fighter who can perform jumping kicks and break people's noses. Through it all, she remains (or at least tries to make people believe she remains) a sweet, slightly goofy girl who is quite comfortable allowing Carlton to think he needs to protect her. Yang. Full stop. It especially stands out when she's with Mr. Yin, her father.

Noodle Incident: In the season 3 episode "Talk Derby to Me," Chief Vick cites "The Prosthetic Nose Debacle of 2005" to explain why Lassiter is obvious when undercover but doesn't explain it any further. She also mentions in season 1 "The Secret Santa Debacle of 2005" to warn O'Hara from doing anything for Lassiter's birthday. Evidently, 2005 was a very eventful and stressful year in the life of Carlton Lassiter. Also never explained was exactly what happened the two times Shawn and Gus were at the Mexican border and why those incidents taught Gus that he should never go anywhere with Shawn blind.

Cowboy Cop
 Psych / int_3dd3951e
comment
Lampshaded and subverted when Lassiter is paired up with an actual Cowboy Cop recruit (who has many other issues besides this). He's frustrated by the recruit's actions (which include firing a gun she's not ready to use—and trashing it when the recoil tosses it out of her hand—and being rough with a victim on the mistaken assumption that he's the suspect, even after she's been told otherwise). When he's finally rid of her (she has a heart attack, and is told to retire for health reasons—not that she would have gotten in anyways; she had myriad other health problems that would have made doing the job well quite difficult for her) and told that Da Chief thinks they're similar, he's horrified by the thought that this is what Internal Affairs and the rest of the department thinks of him. At least for that episode, he's shown making efforts to try and improve his image (if not actually reform).

Woman Scorned
 Psych / int_4063acfd
comment
Woman Scorned: The killer in "Cloudy... With a Chance of Murder" was the victim's secretary who was angry that he never showed any interest in her despite being a notorious womanizer. Marlowe's parole officer. Lassie had a one-night stand with her years previous and never called her back so she takes it out on Marlowe. Lassie tries to circumvent her restrictions, then rubs it in, which just makes it worse. Juliet gets an I Told You So moment when reminding him that she advised Lassiter against hooking up with her because she was "crazy". This was the motivation for the killer in "Heeeeere's Lassie". She had severe mental issues from being left at the altar twice and was in love with the two previous tenants of Lassiter's new apartment. When they made it clear they did not have mutual feelings for her, she drugged them into madness and they committed suicide. She tried to do the same to Lassiter out of fear that he could uncover her crimes.

Becoming the Mask: Juliet often has this problem undercover. Shawn gets sucked up in the street racing culture in "Shawn and Gus in Drag (Racing)". This happens to Gus in the episode "Black and Tan". It's justified, since it's more for a girl than anything, but he still acts like a model even when it's just him and Shawn. We find out in "Shawn and Gus in Drag (Racing)" that he's still using the head oil years later. In later seasons, Shawn does his psychic routine even when there's no one around but Gus and/or Henry, who are both in on the secret. When called on it, Shawn just says it's "force of habit." It's gotten to the point where they don't even call him on it any more.

comment
Comedic Sociopathy: Lassiter is usually the center. So many people make him look foolish. One of the more extreme examples of this was the snowglobe gag in "Gus' Dad May Have Killed an Old Guy", which sailed right past "cruel prank" into "cruel and unusual". Gus also gets a fair bit of this from Shawn as well. Lampshaded during "An Evening With Mr. Yang", where Shawn's callous goofy jokes over the kidnapping of a waitress seem like crossing the line even by the show's very loose, wacky standards. Shawn confides in Gus that if he starts taking the case seriously, he'll be playing by the killer's rules instead of his own, which would allow the killer to win and would likely cause Shawn to actually have to deal with the incredible amount of fear he's mentally blocking out.

Credits Gag
 Psych / int_4af55b78
comment
Credits Gag: Seen occasionally. In one episode featuring Spanish soap opera stars, the song is in Spanish. In another about Bollywood musicals, it's in Hindi. In the following episode, which dealt with Gus' old a capella singing group, it was sung by Boyz II Men. For the Christmas episodes, there's a version with cheery holiday instrumentals and snowflakes superimposed over the screen. Also, there's a longer version of the song that airs occasionally. When Curt Smith of Tears for Fears made a guest appearance in "Shawn 2.0", he sang the theme for that very same episode. The Shining tribute episode also has a unique version of the credits. In the fifth season opener, "Romeo and Juliet and Juliet", the cast's names appear in Chinese before being shown in English, though the theme song is, regrettably, not in Chinese. The episode "Bounty Hunters!" also features the Camp Tikihama spirit song over the end credits, which was supposedly made up by the Case of the Week. The song makes a return a full season later in "Tuesday the 17th". The Twin Peaks tribute episode had the Log Lady Julee Cruise singing the Psych theme song's lyrics to the Twin Peaks theme song.

Wig, Dress, Accent: Really closer to Paper-Thin Disguise, Shawn and Gus tend to run into closets and come out wearing something appropriate to the situation they're about to enter, but their unfamiliarity with the fine details of the situation they're entering usually ends up with people looking crosswise at them. At one point they even SHARE a fake beard. Taken Up to Eleven in the film where Shawn wears Gus' Hagrid costume to search a fence's stash. Still Paper-Thin Disguise, though.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Psych / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: The pilot has Lassiter paired with a different junior detective, with whom he's having an affair. She's gone by the second episode, and Lassiter's estranged from his wife. Lassiter would also become much more morally upright (and so not the person to have an extramarital affair with a co-worker) and more inept with the opposite sex. Shawn also worked a variety of jobs which on rare occasions had esoteric relevance to the plot. That disappeared relatively quickly and was replaced by Shawn learning his Chekhov's Skill in a flashback at the beginning instead. Shawn's also more hostile and belligerent towards Lassiter in the first episode, whereas in later episodes he becomes more playful, if still disrespectful. In the first few episodes, Shawn routinely claims to be speaking with and interacting with ghosts. That went away quick. And just in general, Shawn puts far more effort into his fake psychic episodes in the first couple of seasons, as opposed to later seasons where he mostly just puts his hand to his head and says "I'm getting something..." In Juliet's first appearance, we see a photograph of her parents who Shawn guesses have been together for 30 years (from her reaction, we can assume he's right) and her father does not resemble Frank O'Hara as portrayed by William Shatner in later seasons. In the first two episodes, young Shawn is played by a different actor each time. The flashback in the second episode takes place later than most episodes, so Shawn was about thirteen. Beginning in the third episode, young Shawn was played by Liam James, and the flashbacks generally took place in a particular year which advanced with each passing season. Shawn and Henry's relationship is played for angst in the first couple of episodes. This quickly shifts to a more light-hearted bickering while flashbacks become goofier and show young Shawn giving as good as he gets. In the first season, the Psych logo on the window is blue instead of green. (In the season eight episode "Cloudy...With a Chance of Improvement," which is a remake of season one's "Cloudy...With a Chance of Murder," the logo is blue in the first scene as a nod to this detail, then green for the rest of the episode.) In the pilot, Shawn is a sharp-shooter. He re-uses Lassiter's partner's target sheet, and hits each hole she has already shot. Shawn rarely uses guns after that. Mostly because they refuse to give him one.

Suspect Existence Failure
 Psych / int_4ff0627a
comment
Suspect Existence Failure: Many, many times. Pretty much, it's a coin toss whether or not the Red Herring will make it through the episode alive. One episode had Shawn suspect a fashion mogul of killing her husband right up until she died at his funeral. He then commented "Okay, probably not the wife." Ultimately subverted when it's learned that she actually did kill him. She died from the delayed effects of him poisoning her. As the show reaches its later seasons, this trope starts occurring almost Once per Episode. Even the movie does it, when the Thin White Duke (Billy McGoldrick) is killed, though The Man Behind the Man is revealed seconds later.

Donut Mess with a Cop: One Season 3 teaser. "That wasn't a jelly donut." In "Dual Spires," while Juliet and Henry are staring at a large assortment of donuts: In "We'd Like to Thank the Academy", Shawn mentions he never craved donuts more until he put on the police cadet uniform. He and Gus stop at a Dunkin' Donuts stand in a convenience store in their uniforms to illustrate, and even ask if there's another donut stand somewhere in the store.

Crazy-Prepared: Henry has some of those tendencies. Once when walking home with Shawn and Gus to see a shadow in his living room, Henry reached into the birdhouse and pulled out a stun gun. Cue appropriate responses from Shawn and Gus. Lassiter also falls under this trope. It turns out he has eight guns in various parts of his house, including the shower, the toaster oven, and a bowl of nuts. Revealed in an episode where Lassiter is suspected of killing an FBI witness in a big drug case. He has to go through the whole Turn in Your Badge trope and his apartment is searched over, revealing various hidden gun spots. Shawn and Gus then react appropriately: with slightly disguised surprise and creeped-out looks. Turns out the FBI missed one, which Lassiter used to take down the real murderer. Lassiter has also rubbed off on Juliet by the time of the movie, to the point she encourages her partner to keep a gun hidden in his house, and she herself has taken karate lessons. Lassie has also made plans for whose organs he would want in case he ever needed a transplant, who he would eat first if he was trapped in an Alive-esque scenario, and who from the department he would procreate with if they were the last two people on Earth. Even Shawn is a little weirded out by this. Lassie yet again, when he reveals that he's been building up a tolerance for chloroform over the last fifteen years.

Hurricane of Euphemisms: In "Santabarbaratown", when Shawn and Gus are interviewing someone connected to the case: Shawn launches a similar stream of euphemisms when Lassiter doesn't understand that the bartender's partner is his boyfriend (rather than his business partner) in "Last Night Gus". Given how much time Lassiter spends with Shawn and Gus, it's not that surprising he doesn't get it at first. To a lesser extent, in the movie, the word "dongle" is consistently thrown around...and misinterpreted by Shawn and Woody.

Affably Evil
 Psych / int_537dd8fe
comment
Affably Evil: Pablo Nuñez from "No Country For Two Old Men" is a the ruthless leader of a Mexican crime syndicate whom Juliet's stepfather Lloyd owes money too. However, Pablo is a pretty reasonable guy and was willing to forgive Lloyd's debt to him when Lloyd found a pair of cufflinks that belonged to Pablo's father and Pablo is even grateful enough to invite them to a party. The only reason he even tries to kill Lloyd and Henry later on is because Lloyd stole some US Mint plates from him. The Film of the Series has two examples. First there is El Proveedor, a local fence. He crosses paths with Shawn when the former comes looking for the engagement ring that was stolen in the series finale. When Shawn's "premonitions" end up coming true for El Proveedor, he is so grateful that not only does he track down the engagement ring, he officiates Shawn and Juliet's wedding. The second example is Allison Crowley's nameless henchman who is dubbed the "Black Gentleman Ninja" by Shawn and Gus. He is friendly and polite before attacking Shawn and even after being arrested and captured congratulates Shawn and Juliet on being married.

It's a Wonderful Plot: "The Polarizing Express", lampshaded. Worth mentioning is that it's made clear that the "life without Shawn" bits are more of an ego trip combined with events outside the dream. Also inverted in the sense that rather than realizing everyone would be worse off without him, it helps Shawn realize he's mistreating the people in his life and couldn't do without them.

Mistaken for Gay
 Psych / int_561dab6b
comment
Mistaken for Gay: In one episode, Shawn feels an officer's muscles and makes comments to find out if he's working undercover as a vigilante. Comments like "You look like you could handle yourself in a dark alley full of guys" and "I bet you're real nice with the hand to hand action". Of course, the officer interprets the actions and comments to be a sexual advance and offers to set Shawn up with a friend. Likewise, Juliet wants to welcome a new female officer into the department, even buying her a cupcake, and the officer files a sexual harassment complaint. Happens twice with Shawn in "Murder? ... Anyone? ... Anyone? ... Bueller?" First, after nobody believes Shawn when he says someone was murdered and he's arguing with Gus, Abigail thinks they're an arguing like an old married couple, then when questioning the couple he suspects with Juliet he goes out of his way to complement the male suspect on his appearance, including a comment about his "package", which earns him confused looks from everyone else. Shawn and Gus went on a The Bachelorette-esque show and were more preoccupied with each other than the actual bachelorette. The bachelorette herself thought they were gay. In the episode "Lassie Did a Bad Bad Thing," the killer tries to cover up his crime by orchestrating a murder-suicide between Lassiter and Shawn, explaining the motive as Shawn being Lassie's "former lover." Shawn reacts with indignation, but not for the reason you think.

Let's Get Dangerous!: Lassiter is often the butt of jokes and most of his cases seem to get solved by Shawn while he fumes silentlynote The show does make it clear that Shawn is called in very occasionally, and Lassiter is actually an extremely competent detective. That said, he has immense knowledge of firearms and has received enough Character Development so as to make clear that he's not Frank Burns. Shawn also counts particularly when Henry gets shot. He drops much of the joking and becomes scarily competent.

Bunny-Ears Lawyer: The two most notable are Shawn and Lassie. Shawn is a goof and doesn't take important matters seriously, and Lassie is extremely awkward and difficult to get along with. Still, both are respected for their abilities, and have continued to be be employed by the SBPD. Woody The Coroner also bears special mention. He eats food around dead bodies, has an unbelievably odd personality, and wouldn't know traditional professionalism if it smacked him upside the head. However, he's (usually) good at his job and a well respected coroner (even having graduated at the top of his class).

 Psych / int_66dfe36a
comment
Missing Mom: We find out from an offhand remark by Henry what happened to Shawn's mother: she left, and Shawn's father Henry's very bitter about it. Shawn doesn't realize his mom left his dad and despises his dad for being the leaver, until his mom tells him the truth and apologizes for the negative changes in his life that occurred after she left. Shawn immediately says she has nothing to apologize for and starts to be a little less caustic with his dad.

Took a Level in Dumbass
 Psych / int_6a4f3cf7
comment
Took a Level in Dumbass and Took a Level in Jerkass: Shawn gets hit pretty bad by this in season 5, though signs of it pop up in season 4 (mostly by starting to abuse Gus in ways that would have long term consequences, such as making expensive charges on his credit card). Previously eccentric and a bit of a Genius Ditz Shawn is now as jerky as to as to assume his former assistant knows about the Triads because he is Asian and stupid enough to cut what he himself describes as the cable between the pedals and the engine of a truck. On the Jerkass front, Juliet gets noticeably colder towards Shawn and Gus in season 4, due to her own Character Development as a more serious cop and Shawn's rejection at the end of season 3.

Serious Business: Shawn is a walking inversion; he regularly cracks jokes while investigating murders, much to Gus' dismay. And Lassiter's. And Juliet's and Vick's and Henry's... Lampshaded in "An Evening With Mr.Yang" when Gus calls Shawn out for wise-cracking during a particularly horrific case. Shawn, in a moment of genuine fear, confess to Gus that he's terrified by the case and the wise-cracking is the only thing keeping him from completely losing his shit. Gus spends the rest of the episode making forced jokes despite withering stares from Jules and Lassiter, throwing himself on the humiliation grenade to keep Shawn from losing his grip.

Meaningful Name
 Psych / int_6bda9a30
comment
Meaningful Name: Yang and Yin. In Daoist philosophy the Yang side is light, warm, active and energetic, while Yin is dark, cold, calm and quiet. Yin is associated with death, night, the old, and the earth. And Yang is associated with life, daytime, the new, and heaven. Which becomes even more meaningful when Shawn reveals Yang probably never actually killed anyone and later when she dies and goes (maybe) to heaven.

Christmas Episode: Seasons 2, 3, and 5 featured special Christmas episodes that aired during the holiday season, complete with their own special variation of the opening theme.

Well, Henry gets Shawn a gift. Shawn (always successfully) tries to guess what Henry got him.

Lassiter also falls under this trope. It turns out he has eight guns in various parts of his house, including the shower, the toaster oven, and a bowl of nuts. Revealed in an episode where Lassiter is suspected of killing an FBI witness in a big drug case. He has to go through the whole Turn in Your Badge trope and his apartment is searched over, revealing various hidden gun spots. Shawn and Gus then react appropriately: with slightly disguised surprise and creeped-out looks. Turns out the FBI missed one, which Lassiter used to take down the real murderer.

It's clear that he'll get up to the same antics, with the only difference being that he'll be in a new city, and that he'll be married to Jules.

Gaslighting
 Psych / int_727a65e0
comment
Gaslighting: The villain in "Let's Get Hairy" was a psychiatrist who was drugging his superstitious patient into thinking he was a werewolf. The psychiatrist's goal was to make the patient think he had killed another of the psychiatrist's patients whom the psychiatrist was having an affair with. In "Not Even Close... Encounters", a corrupt CEO deliberately caused a chemical spill an area so he could drill for oil without anyone knowing about it. A Crusading Lawyer discovered what he was doing and tried to expose him. Knowing of the lawyer's history of psychotic episodes, the CEO made the lawyer think he'd witnessed his co-worker being abducted by aliens knowing that no one would believe him. Lassiter is a victim of this in "Heeeeere's Lassie". The killer did the same thing to the previous tenants of his apartment as revenge for spurning her affections.

It Began with a Twist of Fate: After Jules finds out that Shawn's not really psychic and dumps him, Shawn suffers a Heroic BSoD that causes him to fantasize about what might have happened if he'd made one different decision (offering Jules Da Chief's scarf instead of his own jacket, as the contents of the jacket pocket were responsible for Jules realizing that he was a fraud). The fantasy version of events and the reality veer off in wildly different directions.

Remember the New Guy?: Done with Shawn's uncle. Also done with Drake (played by Mekhi Phifer), the sudden fifth member of Gus' old a capella quartet, Gus' sister (who's never mentioned before, not even in the previous Christmas episode when both of Gus' parents are falsely accused of murdering a neighbor), and Gus' ex-wife. In "Lassie Did A Bad, Bad Thing," several SBPD detectives who apparently work in the same building (notably Drimmer and Ocampa) are seen for the first time even though Lassiter, O'Hara, and Vick act like they all have an extensive history with them. Subverted with Lassiter's friend Stumpy. Lassiter tries to convince everyone that he and Stumpy have been pals forever, but they actually lost touch in high school. Lassiter was just embarrassed at his lack of guy friends.

N-Word Privileges: Played with. An eyewitness questioned by Shawn and Gus in a recent episode is a white man who speaks with a very pronounced Thai accent. They accuse him of mocking Asian-Americans, but he explains that he was adopted and raised by a Thai family, so in a sense he is Asian-American - and, incidentally, that "offensive accent" is how he actually speaks.

Real Life Writes the Plot: Chief Vick's pregnancy in the first season. And for several episodes in season 2, Lassiter had his arm in a sling. The reason for this was never revealed, but was implied to be something embarrassing. It was actually caused by Timothy Omundson's real-life injury. Lassiter only gets a single scene in the first movie as a result of Timothy Omundson suffering a mild stroke. This is written into the second film, as Lassiter undergoes a mild stroke as well.

For Want of a Nail: If only Shawn hadn't lent Juliet his jacket at Lassiter's wedding! She finds evidence that Shawn used to find a suspect, confirming he is faking the psychic act and breaks up with him. "Turn Right or Left For Dead" explores this in addition to how events follow in an investigation, one where Shawn goes home with Juliet and another where he himself runs into the victim and it changes the outcome. The two versions have different color timing too, with the apparent "happier" version much warmer (and has Shawn and Juliet as almost completely OOC).

Celebrity Paradox
 Psych / int_7b8b3def
comment
Celebrity Paradox: Being big fans of Eighties pop culture, Shawn and Gus have made at least one reference to The Breakfast Club. But if Ally Sheedy played Allison Reynolds (you know, the basket case), then who's the serial killer Yang? Judd Nelson, who has been personally referenced on previous episodes, guest-starred in "Death is in the Air" as a scientist. Anthony Michael Hall was also in the film and was referenced before appearing in "No Trout About It" as Harris Trout. Molly Ringwald also guest-starred in "Shawn, Interrupted". In the "The Head, the Tail, the Whole Damn Episode" in which Jeri Ryan guest-starred, Shawn makes reference to the season finale of Leverage, where Ryan had been a semi-regular cast member in the same season. They also like to reference movies Dulé Hill appeared in: Holes in "65 Million Years Off" and The Guardian in "You Can't Handle This Episode". Thank God that The West Wing started in 1999 and really wouldn't be their sort of thing anyway, or else they'd be facing some very interesting paradoxes. Officer Dobson being played by Val Kilmer practically rips a hole space-time with the level of paradox involved. In "65 Million Years Off", Shawn makes several references to Holes, in which Dulé Hill had a minor role. May also double as an Actor Allusion. Anthony Michael Hall has been in the show as of the last episode of season 7, and unsurprisingly, The Breakfast Club has been mentioned, most notably in the episode "Murder? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?". (This also brings up Shawn's jab at an FBI agent at the season 7 premiere about his "soft, peachy Anthony Micheal Hall-ish face". Moreover the show will routinely bring in guest stars from shows and movies that have already been explicitly referenced even just a few episodes prior to their appearance with no comment made about the issue. Shawn mentions that Kristy Swanson in Higher Learning would be worth making into a stained glass art piece, and she later came into the show as Marlowe, Lassiter's girlfriend. James Roday's role in the 2005 remake of Dukes of Hazzard is referenced (and derided) by both Shawn and Gus in the season 8 episode "Cloudy... with a Chance of Improvement". In "Mr. Yin Presents...", during Shawn and Gus' first visit with Yang in the psychiatric hospital, she ask Shawn's opinion on her tell-all autobiography, and Shawn admits to preferring Bruce Campbell's. Campbell would later guest-star in season 8's "A Nightmare on State Street."

comment
Worth mentioning is that it's made clear that the "life without Shawn" bits are more of an ego trip combined with events outside the dream. Also inverted in the sense that rather than realizing everyone would be worse off without him, it helps Shawn realize he's mistreating the people in his life and couldn't do without them.

One episode had Shawn suspect a fashion mogul of killing her husband right up until she died at his funeral. He then commented "Okay, probably not the wife." Ultimately subverted when it's learned that she actually did kill him. She died from the delayed effects of him poisoning her.

Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: In "The Polarizing Express", a Vigilante Man is trying to bomb a crime lord for destroying the former's business, killing his fiancee, and ruining his life, all as "punishment" for refusing to pay extortion money. Fortunately, Shawn manages to defuse the situation by rallying all of said crime lord's extortion victims to testify against him and put him away for good.

Entertainingly Wrong
 Psych / int_81c4faa3
comment
Entertainingly Wrong: Constantly on the show, mostly with Shawn as despite his great intellect and skills, he often jumps to the wrong conclusions based on his lack of real police experience. One episode opens with a flashback of Henry finding Shawn writing a book report on Charlotte's Web despite not having finished the book. Shawn says he doesn't see the need as it's perfectly obvious what will happen: Wilbur wins the prize at the fair and he and Charlotte live happily ever after. A smiling Henry bets Shawn a trip to Disneyland he gets an A and Shawn already starts planning it with no idea he's about to fail. This ties into the rest of the episode as Shawn is about to accuse a man of murder but Henry interrupts to point out the guy is innocent because of a detail in his file that Shawn didn't bother to read. Shawn has to turn it around to make it look like he meant to accuse the innocent man to "flush out" the real killer. This also ties into the plot of Shawn working with what he believes is a think tank working out how to stop the kidnapping of a millionaire...only to realize too late they are the kidnappers and he's just given them the plan.

Broken Pedestal: When a case ends up exposing a Dirty Cop ring back when Henry was a detective, Shawn fears this on various levels. He isn't so much concerned of Henry being one of them, but his partner Lou, one of the dirty cops, was so close to the family young Shawn called him "uncle". Shawn's real concern was that he always consider his dad a supercop who should have seen the deception. This gets rebuild when it's revealed that Henry could never get a leg up because both of his friends (and one more) were doing everything they could to shake him off,and even then,it was difficult to do so. Additionally, Henry was the only one to not become a Dirty Cop out of the group of four (with the last one, Jerry, being involved in something far worse than Jack or Lou), maintaining his integrity and dedication to what it means to be a real cop. Henry's discovery that his three closest friends on the force (one being his partner Lou) were all dirty cops shakes him up to where it leads to him retiring for the second and final time from police work (the last one revealed to be involved, Jerry, was also a part of something much worse and a slip-up leads to Jerry shooting Henry.) Despereaux the master thief turned out to be running an insurance scam with art curators, so he wasn't the Classy Cat-Burglar that Shawn hoped he was. In his follow up episode Despereaux even noted with amusement how much Shawn wanted him to be a legendary thief.

Chemically-Induced Insanity: Used a few times: In "Shawn Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," Shawn goes into a mental ward to try to prove that a crimelord is faking insanity to get an Insanity Defense. Turns out this trope is at play instead, and he is being continually dosed by one of the nurses. Happens to Lassiter in "Heeeeeere's Lassie", where the killer is putting a chemical in the air vents to drive certain residents insane. Occurs yet again when a law firm has a man dosed so that people think he's an insane conspiracy nut to discredit them when he is building a case against them when he finds that they've had some shady dealings.

Wham Episode

comment
Wham Episode: The season 4 finale definitely counts. Mr. Yin, the even more psycho partner to serial killer Mr. Yang, kidnaps Juliet and Abigail seemingly just to screw with Shawn. Mary, the Yin-Yang expert from the Third Season finale gets Killed Off for Real. Shawn manages to save both women, but Abigail breaks up with him and Juliet seems to have a breakdown as she falls crying into Lassiter's arms. And finally, the last shot of the episode implies that Yang knew Shawn when he was younger. The season 5 finale even more so. Mr. Yin returns for revenge, almost killing Shawn and Gus in the process. Yang is revealed to have a Freudian Excuse for her obsession with Shawn. It turns out that she is Yin's daughter and she always thought of the Spencers as a model of what a real family is. Then, it is revealed that Yin has taken on a new apprentice. After overcoming all odds to make it out alive, the episode ends with Lassiter discovering that Shawn and Juliet are together. "Neil Simon's Lover's Retreat": Moments after Shawn and Juliet seemingly laugh off the idea of marriage in their near future despite going on vacation together, Gus is given the Game Boy stolen from Shawn earlier in the episode, which he had been obsessing over in what appeared to be typically immature fashion. But after hearing a strange rattling inside, Gus opened the battery compartment to discover the engagement ring Shawn had stored there. Season 6 continues the trend. Not only were ALL of Henry's team when he was a cop corrupt, one of them SHOOTS HIM at the very end of the episode. In "Deez Nups": After Shawn gives Juliet his jacket to wear, she finds one of the clues that Shawn used in one of his many "visions" and begins to realize Shawn isn't actually psychic. "Psych The Musical": Yang is killed off. "1967: A Psych Odyssey": The Chief is transferred, and Lassie becomes the new chief. However, the mayor won't let Juliet advance to Head Detective, so she accepts an offer to be transferred with the Chief.

comment
Asshole Victim: Nelson Poe in "Weekend Warriors" was shot and killed when he looked up and saw the episode's bad guy during the Civil War reenactment rehearsal. Shawn and Gus later find out that he was sleeping with another man's wife before he died. Nigel St. Nigel in "American Duos" is a would-be case of this; he manages to survive the episode, but the fact that he's a hyper-critical, snooty, disdainful and arrogant British asshole means that finding who wants to kill him isn't particularly easy, since there's a list of suspects practically queuing up. Vince Wagner in "Meat Is Murder, But Murder Is Also Murder" is an restaurant critic with ridiculously high standards. Not only did he give every restaurant he went to bad reviews for their best dishes, he also gave his wife ratings on everything she did (including sex), of which she never rose above three out of five. Professor Hahn, the calculus teacher in "If You're So Smart, Then Why Are You Dead?". In addition to having a temper, he's a blackmailer. Not only did he blackmail a student in the past for his tuition money and had the student expelled when he didn't comply, Hahn also did the exact same to the episode's killer when he found out the killer's real identity. Oil rig Safety Inspector Butch Hicks in "There Might Be Blood". He was such a stickler for the rules that he wrote up everyone for even the slightest infraction. Unsurprisingly, the entire crew of the rig is glad to be rid of him. Old Man Fuller from "Gus's Dad May Have Killed An Old Guy". He had a history of being incredibly difficult with his neighbors and was revealed to be blackmailing them meaning that pretty much everyone in the neighborhood had reasons for wanting him dead.

 Psych / int_915242d3
comment
Pstandard Psychic Pstance: Shawn exaggerates this to the point of mockery, finding more and more outlandish ways to flail around to represent his "powers." In one episode, he figured out some evidence from a photo and stated it calmly. When Jules asked him how he knew he said that he got it psychically, but didn't have enough energy to do the usual "hands on head" thing. In "Thrill Seekers & Hell Raisers" Gus participates in the summation, and Shawn helpfully puts his hand next to Gus' head. This is similar to the season one episode where Shawn insisted on rubbing Gus' "magic" head while getting his psych on. Lampshaded in an episode when Shawn deduces something about his father and gets into his psychic position. And again by Gus in "Feet, Don't Kill Me Now": Although it is notable that this is just an exaggeration of Shawn's natural mannerism when he's focusing on a memory. You can see him do it in the first flashback from the pilot.

Corrupted Character Copy
 Psych / int_922ec657
comment
Corrupted Character Copy: The episode "Shawn And Gus In Drag (Racing)" is a Whole Plot Reference to The Fast and the Furious movies, with Tommy Nix (played by Adam Rodriguez) serving as the Dominic Toretto stand-in being a Badass Driver who is the leader of a group of close-knit car thieves. However, it is ultimately revealed that Tommy has absolutely none of Dom's positive characteristics. While Dom treated his gang like family and hated betrayal, Tommy murdered one of his gang for trying to go independent and let another one take the fall for his crime.

Ironically, happens again in the movie when Shawn and Gus discuss the Chief's daughter's location and Woody keeps apologizing for calling Allison Cowley a "bitch", all while she gets exasperated that they keep ignoring her for their own conversation and don't even follow her instructions.

Not So Different
 Psych / int_993cf18f
comment
Not So Different: Lassiter seems to think of the Spencer father and son being basically the same person. Same for Captain Connors, who in a less-than-lucid state, called Shawn "Henry" Lassiter and Shawn can also be more alike than they realise, often turning up at the same locations looking for evidence without knowledge of each other. A prominent example is the penultimate episode of season four, in which Lassiter starts acting on a 'crazy' hunch and conversely Shawn starts doing actual policework. Nicely lampshaded by Gus. A more subtle version in the same episode - both Shawn and Lassiter do part of their routine in moments when it's completely pointless, both rectify it as being a "force of habit". Allsion Cowley remarks on this regarding her and Juliet, wince they're both blonde, can kick ass and are intelligent. Except for, you know, Allison's lack of empathy.

Character Blog: Lassiter and Gus both have blogs. In Lassiter's case, the blog is actually written by the actor who plays him, and both blogs have quite a few nice character details. Lassie also has a Twitter now, also written by Tim Omundson. And yes, if you tweet him, he will respond in character. Juliet and Chief Vick also have Facebook accounts, as do Shawn himself and Abigail Lytar. It's not known whether they are written by their respective actors/actresses, but Jules, Shawn, and Vick will respond in character to your comments and Wall Posts. Shawn's Facebook account was actually a plot point in one episode. And now Lassiter has gotten in on the Facebook action. This version of Shawn's Facebook and this version of Gus's Facebook interact with Lassie's, linked above. Along with McNab.

Took a Level in Badass: Well not "badass," but Gus manages to pull off a Shawn style "cover" on his own in the season 5 opener. Marlowe Viccellio emerged from prison with some mad Muay Thai moves as her newest talent, and also learned how to break a grown man's nose with a single punch. Juliet has taken karate lessons by the movie and can flip up and deliver a roundhouse kick to her opponent's face.

Foreshadowing: The beginning of every episode involves Henry teaching young Shawn a valuable lesson about crime-solving. Sharp viewers can often solve the mystery well before the end of the episode by applying this lesson to the clues Shawn finds. "Tuesday the 17th" becomes surprisingly darker once you've seen the Yin/Yang episodes. Especially the ending. And especially since the episode following it is "An Evening with Mr. Yang". Gus even refers to himself and Shawn as "Yin and Yang."

Dramatically Missing the Point: When, in the seventh season, Juliet discovers that Shawn has been lying about being a psychic, it implodes their relationship. He spends the following episode mulling things over and tells her "If I hadn't given you my jacket, we would still be okay." No, Shawn, it wouldn't still be okay, and that's the point.

Secret Keeper: Gus and Henry. This allows both to function as The Watson and explain how he figured it out. Also Declan and, oddly enough, Curt Smith from Tears for Fears. Starting with "Deez Nups", Jules. It's implied Chief Vick knows he's not a real psychic. She often has a sarcastic tone when asking him for psychic insights, and Shawn frequently fails to pretend he's having a vision when he's talking to just her alone.

Artistic License – Religion: Father Westly in the The Exorcist parody episode violates the actual procedure of a Catholic exorcism pretty severely. For instance, he not only failed to have any medical or psychiatric experts examine the girl (which is a required step for all suspected possessions), but he apparently never even examined her himself (beyond noting her odd behavior) before deciding to conduct an exorcism. As with the above mentioned instances of artistic license this could be intentional as Father Wesley is mentioned to be something of a crackpot with questionable ethics and standards.

Obfuscating Stupidity
 Psych / int_a7aef9ff
comment
Obfuscating Stupidity: Suspected by many fans from the beginning, but pretty much confirmed on-air in "Shawn 2.0." Declan Rand, a criminal profiler who rivals Shawn's deductive skills, does a quick profile of Shawn. The first thing he says is that Shawn is highly intelligent, but ashamed of this fact, and therefore hides it with movie references and clown-ish behavior. When he leaves, Gus and a dismayed Shawn admit that Declan was 100% correct. Although it's important to note that Shawn doesn't want people to think he's a buffoon so they'll underestimate him. It's something he does to convince himself he's somewhat normal. Also, the fact that he got a perfect score on the detective exam at age 15. The top department detectives, Lassiter and O'Hara, only got 97 and 98, respectively, and that was after years at college and the police academy. In the first episode, it is mentioned in passing that Shawn was on his way to be valedictorian until he simply stopped putting in any effort, around the time his parents divorced.

Foot-Dragging Divorcee: Carlton Lassiter was in denial about his separation from his wife, and thought they were getting back together when she asked for dinner at their first-date restaurant. She confronted him with divorce papers and he gave a long, foot-dragging speech, but eventually admits he was aware he'd never been good for her. Having gotten that off his chest, he immediately signs the papers.

Scare 'Em Straight: In one episode, Lassie's saddled with the deputy mayor's son, a juvenile delinquent. It's hoped that he'll be scared straight. By the end of the episode, Juliet finally succeeds where Lassie keeps failing, by whispering something to the kid. We never find out what she told him, but it works well enough for the kid to apologize to Lassie for his behavior.

Chekhov's Skill: In the childhood flashback opener, Henry often teaches Shawn something that he will eventually have to use in the episode. In the season 4 mid-season finale, the first half or so of the episode is inter-cut with these flashbacks. In one episode after being captured and being locked in the trunk of a car Shawn flash backs to his father teaching him EXACTLY WHAT TO DO when you've been captured and locked in the trunk of a car. And, this being Henry, he actually threw Shawn in the trunk for the lesson. This is inverted in the Season 6 opening episode when Shawn cheats a lie detector and at the end of the episode reveals the flashback of Henry teaching Shawn how to do so.

Accident, Not Murder: In "Any Given Friday Night", the victim of the week is a football player who was apparently killed by Russian gangsters to whom he owed money, based on the fact that he received a threatening text on the day he died. Except that when Shawn and Gus investigate, they realize that the football player was already dead when the text was sent. Closer investigation reveals that he'd died in an ATV accident. Three of his teammates had been there, and they staged the supposed murder into cover up the fact that their off-roading jaunt was in violation of the morality clause in their contracts.

Informed Flaw: Shawn constantly remarks on what a bad detective Lassiter is, but there are numerous indications that he solved plenty of crimes off-screen, and tends to fail only on the types of cases that require Shawn. One episode actually has Lassiter on such a roll clearing cases that Shawn and Gus are desperate for a case that he can't solve...so that they can make some money.

Abusive Parents: Although it's made very clear throughout the series that Henry loves Shawn dearly, some of the flashbacks (or real-time references to Shawn's past) are rather worrying. For instance, Henry taught young Shawn how to escape a locked car trunk... by locking him in a car trunk. Adult Shawn is also upset by the fact that, when he was eight, Henry hid Shawn's Easter eggs by burying them five feet underground. Henry claims that he left loose dirt to indicate a fresh dig to make it easier. Shawn points out that this fresh dig was hidden under a camouflage tarp covered with bricks and broken glass. There's still two he hasn't found.

City of Adventure
 Psych / int_b408c009
comment
City of Adventure: Santa Barbara, of all places. The real city is a small town of less than 100,000 people that has one or two murders a year. While not all episodes feature murder, and not all episodes that do feature murder take place in Santa Barbara, the murder rate in Psych's Santa Barbara must be at least a couple of magnitudes higher than that if the police need Shawn and Gus's help on a dozen murders per year. On top of that, the city has whatever backdrop is needed to make the plot work, such as a thriving illegal drag racing scene or a war brewing between Asian gangs. Given that the writers treat Santa Barbara as a much larger city than it is, one wonders why they didn't just go with a big city in the first place. Also, Mr. Yang is described as "the most notorious serial killer this city [Santa Barbara] has ever seen". So, how many has it had? Everyone assumes Santa Barbra is a nice town... Santa Barbara County has over 400,000 people, and since the show has come on, the murder rate has increased sevenfold. Life Imitates Art? "It's the murder capital of the world."

Later, Shawn tries to pull down the bad guy's house down by chaining the Blueberry (Gus' blue Toyota Yaris/Echo) to the house's support beam and wrecking it Lethal Weapon 2-style. However this fails for two reasons: 1.) The car used in the movie to pull down the house was a heavy duty pickup-truck; instead Shawn and Gus used a small hatchback style car, which breaks in half due to not being supported for that kind of force. 2.) The house's support beam was reinforced to the ground by concrete and not to a loose hillside.

Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Shawn, in "Ferry Tale", vehemently objects to going with Gus on an environmental trip. As they board the ferry, Gus points out that Shawn did agree to go, but that he apparently wasn't paying close attention when he did. Shawn, offended, begins ranting about how he has keen, well-developed mental abilities and an infallible sense of attention. He forgets his complaints mid-rant when Gus gives him a Snickers bar (in a shiny wrapper, no less, making this trope count even more) and goes "Ooh!". This works at least twice. Also worth mentioning is the time he accidentally ingests speed during "Dead Man's Curveball". In the middle of a conversation he becomes distracted by Gus's ear.

comment
Dropped After the Pilot: The show gave Detective Lassiter a female partner (Anne Dudek appeared as the competent and skeptical Detective Lucinda, no last name given, partner and lover of the major character Carlton Lassiter) with whom he was having an affair and who was suspicious of Shawn's "psychic" abilities. Post-pilot she is never seen nor heard of again, she's transferred out in the second episode because of the affair thing and replaced with Shawn's trusting, less skeptical eventual Love Interest, Junior Detective Juliet O'Hara.

Unbelievable Source Plot
 Psych / int_c6dd74c5
comment
Unbelievable Source Plot: Parodied. Shawn is gifted with excellent non-supernatural observational skills but rather than demonstrate these skills, opts to convince the police he is psychic. Only one of the cops doubts his powers are really psychic and is ridiculed by his colleagues for not believing.

Plausible Deniability: It's practically confirmed that Chief Vick knows that Shawn's psychic abilities are just an act but, in addition to her friendship with his dad, considers his skills too valuable to ignore. So she plays along for both this trope and knowing Shawn would be a major liability if he was a more official consultant.

Freudian Excuse

The season 5 finale even more so. Mr. Yin returns for revenge, almost killing Shawn and Gus in the process. Yang is revealed to have a Freudian Excuse for her obsession with Shawn. It turns out that she is Yin's daughter and she always thought of the Spencers as a model of what a real family is. Then, it is revealed that Yin has taken on a new apprentice. After overcoming all odds to make it out alive, the episode ends with Lassiter discovering that Shawn and Juliet are together.

Retirony: Shawn spends all of "Bounty Hunters!" ducking whenever someone says that they are going to retire. When asked what he is doing he explains that that's when somebody usually gets shot, right? In the season six finale, Henry retires due to finding out that two of his partners from his days in the force were crooked, and he could no longer put his heart in it. As he tells this to his last remaining partner, a tragic case of I Never Said It Was Poison happens, and the last partner shoots Henry as they're walking along the beach to keep him quiet.

Two Lines, No Waiting: Though everyone is usually working on the same case, if Jules and Lassiter happen to be working on a major case while Shawn and Gus take a smaller, weirder or seemingly less important case, you can expect that the smaller case is in some way a cover-up of the big case.

No Badge? No Problem!: Shawn will often tell people he's "The Head Psychic for the SBPD" as if he's an actual officer, when he's actually a consultant/hired on Private Detective. Doesn't stop him from investigating everything and everyone vaguely connected to a high profile or interesting case, even cases he hasn't actually been hired for it. Da Chief puts up with it because he gets results. It's to the point cops from other jurisdictions have assumed Shawn is the boss and Detective Lassiter is supposed to answer to him, rather than the other way around.

Shawn and Gus use a disguise from last season in a season 8 episode to sneak into the police station; they are immediately detained because cops aren't as lax as the security at a gun club (they weren't attempting a Ballistic Discount in that episode if that's what you're thinking). Plus, they were both wearing ''half'' of a fake beard.

Cassandra Truth: In "In Plain Fright", Shawn sees a murder... in a haunted house. In "Truer Lies", Shawn has to prove the truth of a witness testimony given by a compulsive liar who had a history of sending the police department on wild goose chases. It was also implied that Shawn saw a lot of himself in the guy. "Not Even Close... Encounters" had a lawyer who frequently suffered from delusions claim that his co-worker had been abducted by aliens. No one believed him due to him having made a similar claim previously and his insistence that a textile company he was suing had deliberately caused a chemical spill. As it turned out, the lawyer was right about the company deliberately causing the spill as the CEO had discovered oil under some land and wanted people out of the area while he drilled for it.

Mundane Made Awesome: In "Gus Walks Into A Bank" the arrival of the SWAT team is punctuated by slow motion low-angle shots of the team exiting the back of their mobile command unit and the hostage negotiator putting on his sunglasses and striding towards the camera, with the only sound being a heavy metal track ("More Human Than Human" by White Zombie). Once the negotiator starts barking out orders, Shawn says "and... cut" and suggests they do the scene again with a little less swagger.

That Came Out Wrong
 Psych / int_d1affec1
comment
That Came Out Wrong: After easily cracking a case, Shawn goes out with a beautiful woman. He realizes just as she invites him back to her place that he has made a mistake. His comments that the case was "too easy" and "I can't believe how quickly I nailed this!" make it sound like he is calling her a tramp, and she leaves. This also happens in the football episode, when Gus (who is masquerading as a team manager/doctor/masseur) says that he won't massage the football players because he only uses his hands "to touch [him]self." In the same episode he tells a football player he admired that "I slept on your face for years!" When Shawn notes that he and Gus are being played as pawns in a game, Gus replies, "I'm no pawn, Shawn; I'm a queen!" In "We'd Like to Thank the Academy": Memorably, Lassiter about the SBPD in the first season: "We don't have balls." The season 6 finale (ahem) plays with this a bit: This: This came with a touch of Brick Joke: In one episode, Gus angrily declares that he just wants to return to the spa retreat he'd booked for himself. Quote, "I will be naked, and unashamed, under my robe, while they rub Little Shawn down!" 'Little Shawn' was a name he'd given the biggest stress pain in his life. The ladies that had pulled up next to him at the traffic lights, needless to say, take it the wrong way. Lassiter in Deez Nups tells someone "If you don't reveal yourself, I will whip out the enormous piece I have under my robe!"...with the mailman standing a few feet away.

In Spite of a Nail: The episode "Right Turn or Left for Dead" contains two different possible realities for the investigation of a case, which branch off when Shawn makes one small decision one way or another. Even though the two investigations follow the leads in a completely different sequence, the end result is the same: Shawn solves the case in a flash of insight at the exact same time in both realities.

Hyper-Awareness: Shawn, thanks to his father's relentless training. He even gets a special effect to show when he notices something. Henry has this too, but he doesn't get special effects. A rival (fake) psychic working for the FBI also had some talent in this, at least able to deduce when Shawn was using his skills. It's often played with as having such a talent also requires the proper knowledge and/or skills to connect the pieces together. Shawn has referred to Gus on his knowledge of pharmaceuticals many times. Another time he joked that he identified a poisoned sandwich because the number of sesame seeds on the regular hotel sandwiches were much different (it was actually the style of toothpick to keep them together). He remarked that he was observant, not The Rain Man.

Training from Hell: A watered down version to be sure, but Shawn's father Henry relentlessly drilled Shawn from very early in his childhood (to the exclusion of a normal childhood, save Gus — which isn't saying much) to have the uncanny attention to detail and eidetic memory which now allows Shawn to convincingly fake having psychic abilities. In episode 4x09, we learn that the training didn't stop there. Henry taught young Shawn how to escape from being locked in a car trunk... by locking him in a car trunk.

El Spanish "-o": Shawn's time on a Spanish soap opera mostly consists of middle school Spanish, but for his summation he switches to accented English with some -o-ing. This reappears in "No Country For Two Old Men" when the cast ends up in Mexico. It's made extra funny both times by the fact that James Roday's real last name is "Rodriguez" and his father is Mexican.

Red Herring: Happens every so often, with Shawn (happily) and Gus (reluctantly) having to exonerate them.

A notable example is in the Season 4 finale: Mr. Yin wears ankle weights to make Shawn believe Mary is the killer.

Everyone Can See It: The Shawn/Juliet (non-)relationship has been commented on by several Case of the Week characters, and even Gus seems to be trying to help it along. In Season 5, when Shawn and Jules finally start dating, Shawn has trouble telling Gus, fearing that Gus won't take it well. When the truth comes out, Gus doesn't act surprised... until Shawn catches him eating a bowl of caramels, which earlier he said Gus had a tendency of doing whenever Shawn enters into a serious relationship. When Shawn questions if it is, Gus defensively hids the bowl with Shawn rolling his eyes at what's gonna happen.

Get Ahold Of Yourself Man: In "This Episode Sucks," Gus briefly goes catatonic at the sight of blood. After several gentle attempts to bring him back to his senses, Shawn elects to slap him as hard as he can in the face... except right before he does, Gus snaps out of it and instinctively punches him instead.

Male Gaze: Possible in-universe example: in the episode Let's Do-Wop It Again Shawn is hospitalized and interacts with the others through an iPad that Gus carries around. While Gus is following Jules at one point, he seems to be holding Shawn a little lower than usual... In High-Top Fadeout, the episode to which Let's Do-Wop It Again is a direct sequel, Gus' friend Diddle's desk is position in just such a way as to get a clear shot of his co-worker's ass when she's at the copier.

Flashback with the Other Darrin: The episode "Mr. Yin Presents" ends with the reveal of a photograph of Mr. Yang and young Shawn, at the time played by Liam James. The photograph is brought back in "Yang 3 in 2D," but the young Shawn in the photograph is now Skyler Gisondo, who replaced James in season 5.

Last-Name Basis: Everyone calls Burton Guster "Gus" and Lassiter "Lassiter", though Shawn calls him "Lassie" (unless he's trying to be serious). Juliet alternates between "Lassiter" and Carlton when she's frustrated. Lassiter calls Shawn "Spencer", which naturally causes some confusion when he does the same thing to Shawn's father.

I Just Want to Be You: In the episode "Juliet Wears the Pantsuit", Juliet gets a roommate who she becomes friends with until the woman starts dressing like and pretending to be her (the film Single White Female is given a Shout-Out). It turns out that the woman is on the run from her abusive husband who keeps managing to track her down despite the number of times she has taken on false identities and thought she would be safe with Juliet as a roommate since she's a cop.

Whole Plot Reference: "Shawn And Gus In Drag (Racing)" is a spoof of ''The Fast and the Furious" movies. "Dual Spires", which is an homage to Twin Peaks. "Last Night Gus" which was inspired by The Hangover. Also "Heeeeeere's Lassie", which mostly follows the plot of The Shining. "100 Clues" is all over Clue.

Insistent Terminology: Crops up from time to time. A nice example is a 1987 flashback in which Henry claims to have taken something of Shawn, unbeknownst to him. Shawn calls it robbing, but "robbery is the taking of property by force or fear" and Henry is not afraid of anyone in the room. Gus then calls it burglary, but that involves breaking in - "this is theft, pure and simple".

Flanderization
 Psych / int_e5e6640b
comment
Flanderization: In the first couple of seasons, Shawn was perfectly capable of acting like a normal adult when the situation called for it or he was off the job. By the 3rd season, his need to be as obnoxious as possible even when it seems likely to get him killed has become as pathological and uncontrollable as Adrian Monk's phobias. This is actually referenced in the show, where it's suggested that his success has completely gone to his head. It is also suggested, in the first Yin episode, that Shawn may be intentionally playing up his quirks as a way to avoid having to deal with the stress and fear that comes with the job. Also Gus's eating, at first both Shawn and Gus where bit of big eaters, but now in the current season, Gus had eaten a pit of meat that he found in the woods(which could have killed him) also eaten some more meat later in the same episode,(which everyone thought was Lassister!) Also, one a guy suddenly dies, Gus wanted to know if their could share his food. Lassiter also became more and more uptight and rigid as time went by with more humor revolving around this. Also, the affair he has with his partner (not Juliet) seems inconceivable in later seasons. The movie appears to have dialed back on this (except for Gus' eating habits).

comment
Only a Flesh Wound: When Shawn is shot and survives, this (along with a picture of the shooter in a military uniform holding a rifle) is instantly enough for him to deduce the shooter was a military trained expert sniper, as there's no other way he could have shot accurately enough to make the shot nonlethal. Especially when the shooter's only three feet away and "misses." Yet at the same time, as the trope page mentions, there really isn't any non-lethal way to shoot someone (at least not in the ways most TV characters get shot). Typically played straight when Jules and Lassie have to shoot someone. Once Juliet shoots someone in the hand.

All Just a Dream: Played with in "Right Turn or Left For Dead". After the events of the previous episode, Shawn begins to obsessively replay Lassiter's wedding back in his head, where the viewers get to see how things could have played out had Shawn not given Juliet his jacket. While both decisions lead to them working on the same case, there are some differences as to how the case is eventually solved. Additionally, not giving Juliet his jacket leads Shawn to propose to her at one of the crime scenes they visit to search for clues while giving her his jacket leads them to resolve their problems and get back together once the case is solved. However, what actually happens is that Juliet is still hurt by Shawn not being honest with her and tells him to move out.

Crossover
 Psych / int_eb7c34cf

Crossover: Unfortunately averted. Word of God says that if Psych hadn't made Leverage a fictional show within the Psych universe (see Celebrity Paradox above), Leverage's Eliot would have had an uncle named Henry. The favor was returned in Leverage, however, as Hardison mentions that Nate has Psych in his Netflix queue. Being a USA original series, though, it's seen several crossovers in commercials. For instance, Shawn and Johnny Smith in a diner arguing over who has it harder (fake psychic due to psychologically abusive upbringing vs. real precog due to coma) before seeing Adrian Monk counting and arranging the corn on his plate and agreeing they've got nothing on him. Done for another promotional commercial in which Gus has his wallet stolen by Neal Caffrey while chatting with both he and Peter Burke. Finally, in the series finale, Adrian Monk is given a passing mention as SFPD's resident consultant.

Far, far worse is when he has to give her hints to his location over the phone under the pretense of saying goodbye to a lover. When he says he loves her and she begins to respond in kind, he intentionally cuts her off by saying "Goodbye, Abigail" to prove it was fake. He later admits to Gus that he knew she was about to say she loved him.

Rube Goldberg Hates Your Guts: In "Mr. Yin Presents," the second member of the Yin-Yang killer team uses Alfred Hitchcock films to devise several themed ways of luring, capturing, or killing people. Mary Lightly was killed similarly to a scene from Psycho. The main cast had to go into a building as different characters from Hitchcock films, where Henry Spencer and Carlton Lassiter became trapped in a car (but survived); however, Juliet triggered a trap door that caused her to be captured. Later, she was tied in a chair that was attached to a clock tower, in such a way that at 4:30, a cable would be severed and she would fall to her death. At the same time, Shawn's girlfriend, Abigail, was bound beneath a pier while the tide was coming in. Both were saved in the nick of time.

It's often played with as having such a talent also requires the proper knowledge and/or skills to connect the pieces together. Shawn has referred to Gus on his knowledge of pharmaceuticals many times. Another time he joked that he identified a poisoned sandwich because the number of sesame seeds on the regular hotel sandwiches were much different (it was actually the style of toothpick to keep them together). He remarked that he was observant, not The Rain Man.

Product Placement: As with pretty much everything on the show, lampshaded and played for laughs: Shawn has an iPhone with a custom "Psych" skin. He even namedrops the Yelp app in "Shawn takes a Shot in the Dark" (It's even available for purchase in real life). For "Shawn (and Gus) of the Dead," Red Robin asked the writers of Psych to do product placement. Unbeknownst to them, there were already two references to Red Robin written in the episode. Or how about the Axe Body Spray plug Shawn makes when he notes that it's like catnip for women, complete with the approving head-nod of Jules? Gus's credit card. Note to whoever wrote that bit: Showing it being used to make unauthorized purchases does not make people want it. In the episode "Think Tank" Shawn is trying to safely maneuver a billionaire through a hotel hallway, when he sees a small bottle of Axe shampoo in a cleaning ladies cart, He also demands a giant bowl of Skittles, some Big League Chew, and a "dope NBA air horn" (the last item claimed to be at Gus' request) in exchange for Psych joining the Think Tank. In "Ferry Tale" Gus manages to distract Shawn by giving him a Snickers bar. Twice. After mocking Shawn for being easily distracted. Shawn namedrops Snyder's of Hanover-brand pretzels on a couple occasions. One episode even includes a lingering close-up shot of a pack. Shawn eats it so often in the middle few seasons it almost becomes a Trademark Favorite Food - second to pineapple of course. A Dunkin' Donuts coffee advertisement is done hilariously out of place in "Daredevils!". Probably intentionally, as Shawn and Gus randomly stop mid-scene to talk about coffee. Dunkin' Donuts donuts appear in a lengthy scene in "We'd Like To Thank The Academy." Funnily enough, because much of the show's humor comes from random references, the product placements are usually unnoticeable, or at least not nearly as annoying as in most shows. Honey Bunches of Oats makes a couple of (relatively) prominent appearances early on. Gus's car, which was referred to as "The Yaris" in season one, and every season after that referred to as "The Blueberry". Woody offers Shawn and Gus Oreo Cakesters. Mexican Coke, it has real sugar and everything. It's impossible to tell if the Cheetos line in "Meat Is Murder, But Murder Is Also Murder" is actually a Cheetos ad or not, since the actor was trying to show why he should be the new food critic for the newspaper. It also turns out to be a key clue to solving the case.

Dude, Where's My Respect?
 Psych / int_f818b637
comment
Dude, Where's My Respect?: Shawn's unorthodox methods have been the deciding factor in arresting murderers, thieves, con artists, and even serial killers. Many times over the course of the series the Santa Barbara police would have imprisoned the wrong person, and many people would be dead, without Shawn's help. Despite this, every week the cops say they don't have time for his "hunches," his help is not needed, and please get out of the way so the "real" cops can do their jobs. This is especially noteworthy for Detective Lassiter, who is perpetually dismissive and condescending toward Shawn, despite the fact that he would be rotting in jail for a murder he didn't commit if Shawn hadn't cleared his name.

Romantic False Lead
 Psych / int_faa71569
comment
Romantic False Lead: Abigail Lytar was one of these. However, O'Hara only reacts negatively to her when Shawn brings her on a case (You Can't Handle This Episode) because he brought her on a case. For her part, Abigail's not thrilled to get to see a dead body. Abigail has since been put on a plane to do volunteer work in Africa, but says she'll return sometime in February. And she did... only to fall into the hands of Mr. Yin. Although Shawn rescues her, she breaks up with him, unable to deal with the danger Shawn's profession puts him and his loved ones in. Juliet also expresses some jealousy when she discovers that Shawn's relationship with Abigail has progressed to the "he has a drawer, she has a toothbrush stage" when she and Gus are checking out Shawn's apartment. They are there to figure out how Shawn got himself SHOT, by the way, and Juliet still can't help getting sidetracked by her jealousy.

Will They or Won't They?: Shawn and O'Hara. Semi-resolved, in the Bittersweet Ending of Season 3, when O'Hara finally kisses Shawn... while he's on a date with another woman. And then there's the summer finale of season five... while she's in a relationship with Declan. They're in a relationship by "Extradition II". James Roday actually calls it this in this interview. As of the Series Finale They're Engaged. Though now they have to chase down the guy who stole Shawn's engagement ring mid-proposal. And the Adventure Continues! They're married by the end of the movie.

Depending on the Writer: The Shawn/Henry relationship. Shawn often claims it's a bad one, and a few of the flashbacks show Henry overreacting wildly, but most of the time they seem to get along okay, even in many of the flashbacks. (Of course, the divorce didn't help the relationship.)

This came with a touch of Brick Joke: In one episode, Gus angrily declares that he just wants to return to the spa retreat he'd booked for himself. Quote, "I will be naked, and unashamed, under my robe, while they rub Little Shawn down!" 'Little Shawn' was a name he'd given the biggest stress pain in his life. The ladies that had pulled up next to him at the traffic lights, needless to say, take it the wrong way.
