Episode Notes
Psych-Out: Shawn and Gus block the spotlight from Juliet and take us back to the boy band era with "I Want It That Way." If the Backstreet Boys ever need any replacements, they'll know whom to call.

Pineapple Watch: When Shawn tells Gus they have to leave the restaurant, Gus laments about the double-chocolate mango pineapple they'll be missing.

This episode was billed as a season premiere by USA Network, although it's really just a continuation of the first season after a five-month hiatus.

Episode Quotes
Gus: I wonder what Trish and Captain Connors are talking about.
Shawn: Why don't I just read her lips?
Gus: 'Cause you can't.
Shawn: Sure I can. (imitating Trish) I'm sorry, father. I can't fight it any longer. I'm in love with Shawn.
Gus: (imitating Connors) Stop pretending to be insane, daughter.
Shawn: "Daughter"? He calls her "daughter"?
Gus: (continuing to imitate) You know you belong with Gus. He's smarter and funnier. Plus, he has abs like Bruce Lee.

(Shawn has his back to Trish, trying to psychically guess who she is)
Shawn: Did we ever kiss?
Trish: No.
Shawn: I'm sorry. That image may have very well been coming from the not-too-distant future.

Shawn: (spots a crossword puzzle on the restaurant table) Oh, no.
Gus: What?
Shawn: Little "I"s. Gus, little "I"s, little "I"s. We gotta go.
Gus: What?
Shawn: Little "I"s!
Gus: What about Connors? What about the double-chocolate mango pineapple?
Shawn: Forget the scones! There's only one person I know who makes little—
Henry: (walking out of the restaurant) Don't rush off on my account.

Shawn: Captain Connors, how are you sir?
Connors: Look at you fellas, all grown up. How long's it been?
Shawn: About a day.
Gus: Less, actually.

Shawn: (to the mountain lion) Simba, I am your father.
Gus: I don't think Mufasa said that.
Shawn: Ah, Mufasa, Vader, I'm Not Rappaport. It's all James Earl Jones.
Gus: I'm Not Rappaport was Ossie Davis.
Shawn: It still works.

Gus: We're not even supposed to be in here.
Shawn: Relax. I love cats, and it's been proven that cats love me.
Gus: Well, this cat likes to eat people.
Shawn: (to the mountain lion) Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty. You're not gonna eat anybo—
(mountain lion growls ferociously)

Gus: What are you doing? We don't know anything about delivering warthog babies.
Shawn: Ah, babies are babies. You just pull it out at the right time. The real question is, are you allergic to placenta?

Shawn: Mike's body was found on this trail.
Gus: It's closed. Now what?
Shawn: (sighs) Hold on. Let me think a minute. (looks around) OK, I have a plan. It's a little crazy, might just work.
Gus: What?
(Shawn effortlessly steps over the chain blocking the entrance.)
Shawn: Dude! We totally made it! We're in!

Gus: Shawn, in case you're confused, "closed" means "go away, stay out."
Shawn: Yes, in the negative language dictionary, which is clearly the only edition you own. But in the positive language edition, "closed" means "Come in, step over the chain. There's so many less people to trample all over what you're looking for!"

Gus: You really think you could track the animal
Shawn: Perhaps you've forgotten about my extensive experience with the Native Americans, a proud and solvent people.
Gus: Working at the Flaming Tomahawk?
Shawn: So, you do remember.
Gus: Shawn, you were a greeter. In the casino. For a week.
Shawn: And the only non-Native American to be awarded an eagle feather. Always remember that, Gus.

(after being found in the woods by Ranger De Soto)
Gus: What are we doing here? I'm burning up in this thing.
Shawn: No, you're not.
Gus: Yes, I am.
Shawn: You've been wandering lost in the woods for two nights, and you're suffering from extreme hypothermia. Now, shiver!

Shawn: Oh, Ranger De Soto, this soup is amazing. Gus called it a chowder, and I'm tempted to agree. Do you might have any crackers to go with it, perhaps those little oyster kind?
De Soto: I'll check. (leaves)
Shawn: You're too kind.
Gus: Crackers, really? For someone who supposedly drinks his own urine, your palate is suddenly very sophisticated.

De Soto: Sorry, all I have is saltine. Is that OK?
Shawn: Oh, believe me, when you're starving, you'll eat anything...including the poop of indigenous beasts.

Shawn: You mind if I ask you a question that's completely unrelated?
De Soto: Sure.
Shawn: Is that...real...mahogany?

Connors: (to Shawn) Henry! Henry, tell them who I am.
Shawn: (looks around) Um...
Gus: I think he's talking to you.
Shawn: Oh, God, please tell me I don't look anything like my father.
Gus: You could be his twin.
Shawn: Look at the back of my head. Is my hair starting to thin at all?

(arriving at the Crocker mansion)
Gus: This is a fortress. We need a plan. I don't think we can exactly just ring the buzzer to ask to peek into Mr. Crocker's medicine cabinet.
Shawn: Why not? That sounds perfectly reasonable to me. Why can't we be from the State Board of Medicine Cabinet Inspectors?

Edna: Excuse me, where are your badges?
Shawn: Oh, I don't need a badge. I'm the event planner.
Edna: The event planner's a woman.
Shawn: Yeah, I'm her assistant...
Edna: Also a woman.
Shawn: the assistant.

Edna: Don't tell me what I need to do. The rules are very strict here.
Shawn: Really, you're gonna let your bosses run you around like that? Gonna let the man hold you down, these freak bastards with their rules and regulations? You're a human person. You need to rise up and tell them to go to hell. We can all do it together. Let us empower you.
Edna: I'm Edna Crocker...and you're one minute away from a squad car ride.
Shawn: Probably oughta let this one go.
Gus: Yeah...

Shawn: He was here.
Lassiter: Well, of course he's here. We saw him come in, Sherlock.
Shawn: No, no, no, not Connors. Mike. Mike McMillan was here. (pretending to channel Mike) What? But you sound all muffled. What are you, eating something? How c— Right. Right, right, right. My bad. My bad. (pulls Mike's "MISSING" flier out of his pocket) He was muffled ' fault. (unfolds it) There, there, that's so much better.

Shawn: He was mauled by a mountain lion! You don't find that the least bit coincidental?
Henry: Of course it's coincidental, Shawn. But it doesn't make it murder.
Shawn: No, it makes it an episode of When Animals Attack: Santa Barbara.

Gus: I'm Not Rappaport was Ossie Davis.

Lassiter: Well, of course he's here. We saw him come in, Sherlock.
