Psych: He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves Me, Oops, He's Dead

Lassiter gives Shawn and Gus a very special case. When they enter the questioning room, they're surprised to see a naked man sitting before them. The man, Turk, is also kind of surprised to be naked. He woke up in the middle of a field, confused and unclothed. The only thing he seems to remember is seeing aliens. Though Turk might believe he was abducted, Shawn wants to investigate a more logical explanation. When more guys show up in the same predicament as Turk, Shawn manages to find a common link among them. The clue leads him and Gus to a speed-dating service where they, along with Lassiter and Juliet, must go undercover to find the person responsible for robbing these men of their possessions and their dignity.

Episode Notes
Psych-Out: Henry, per his request, gets in on the action, but singing "Feels Good" with Shawn and Gus isn't what he had in mind.

When Shawn is trying to convince Karen to have the SBPD pay for his speed date, he suggests that they should split the price. This is known as "going Dutch." However, Shawn says "going Deutsch" This is a callback to the Psych-Out from "Weekend Warriors" in which Shawn incorrectly pronounces "dutchies" as "deutschies."

Episode Quotes
Turk: There's no way I'm gonna touch these clothes and compromise evidence!
Shawn: OK, OK, Mr. Turk. Please try to gain control of your considerable person.

Shawn: (to Turk) Why don't you cover up with the towel. That's why it's there. One size fits all...I hope.

Shawn: Aside from the embarrassment of waking up naked in a field, we've got nothing to hang our hats on. (sees a photo of Turk, naked) I guess technically we could have hung our hats on his-
Gus: Shawn.
Shawn: Sorry.

Shawn: Come on, man. There's gotta be some drug that would cause a combination of those three things. Think. Drugs!
Gus: Oh, you're asking me?
Shawn: Sure.
Gus: Let me see. Off the top of my head, any SSRIs, tramadol, bupropion, proton pump inhibitors...
Shawn: That's what I'm talking about. Thank you.
Gus: ...venlafaxine, ropinirole...
Shawn: That's good work from you, buddy.
Gus: ...b-adrenoreceptor antagonists...
Shawn: OK, gold star for Gus.
Gus: ...phencyclidine, ketamine, bufotenine...
Shawn: You're not gonna stop are you?
Gus: Did I already say venlafaxine?
Shawn: There's no way to be sure.

Gus: What does this case have to do with a tanning salon?
Shawn: It's the middle of winter in Santa Barbara. Those dudes look like gingerbread men without tan lines. They fake, and they bake.
Gus: Shawn, exactly how close did you look at these naked guys?
Shawn: Too close. My heightened observational skills are considered a gift by most, but I'm here to tell you it can be a burden.

Salon Attendant: May I help you?
Gus: Yes, I'm here for a tanning appointment.
Salon Attendant: For yourself?
Gus: Yes, for the insta-tan process. I would like that.
Salon Attendant: But....
Gus: What?
Salon Attendant: You're...
Gus: Yes?
Salon Attendant: Uh, I don't understand.

(at the tanning salon)
Gus: He says it's always the single guys trying to keep up with their tans.
Shawn: Single guys?
Gus: Yeah.
Shawn: Maybe that's it. Maybe some woman is targeting singles at the salon. Question is, what kind of loser thinks getting a tan is gonna help him score a woman?
(Henry walks out)
Shawn: Dad?

Shawn: What is that?
Henry: What?
Shawn: Exfoliating scrub...with pumice.
Henry: Whatever, Shawn. All I know is when I varnish my boat and I don't want it to streak, I sand off a layer first. Same thing goes with tanning.
Shawn: That is the single most disturbing analogy I have ever heard in my entire life.

Shawn: Where are they?
Henry: Who?
Shawn: The Queer Eye guys. I know they're here somewhere. Gus, what are their names?
Gus: How am I supposed to know, Shawn?
Henry: Carson and Jai...and the guy with the glasses.
Gus: Oh, yeah, who cooks the fish.
Henry: Right.

Shawn: (to Marvin the leprechaun) Will you do me a favor? In your funny accent, will you say "magically delicious"?

Shawn: Jules, may I please have a pen and something to write on? (scribbles quickly and hands the paper to Gus)
Gus: Oh! (gives the paper to Lassiter)
Lassiter: (reading) "To Lassie. On the alpine highway of life, you are my all-weather tires. H&Ks, Shawn." What the hell is this?
Juliet: "H&Ks" stands for hugs and kisses.

Shawn: Take off the tie.
Lassiter: I'm not taking fashion tips from you.
Shawn: You need to show some chest hair. Chicks dig the sternum bush.

Glenda: Shawn. That's a nice name.
Shawn: Yea, it's OK. It's OK. My last name is Ulfeninderheinie. Yeah, it's been a tough life. Kids can be cruel.
Glenda: You know, you could probably change that. What's your mom's maiden name?
Shawn: Buzzteets.
Glenda: Wow. Yeah. "Teets" as in...
Shawn: Yeah, yeah, all my ancestry were farmers.

Lorraine: This is a speed dating first! (to Shawn and Juliet) You and you are a 100% match from your personality questionnaires! I smell love. (dings bell) Go on. Come on. (walks away)
Juliet: I need a drink.
Shawn: I gotta pee.

Gus: Plus, she keeps wanting to rub my head. What's up with that?
Shawn: Gus, everybody wants to rub your head.

Juliet: Shawn, what are you doing here?
Shawn: Bowling. At a high level.
Juliet: By yourself on a Saturday night?
Shawn: I'm in a league. Semi-pro. I could've gone pro, but you know what? I made a choice. I like to get fourteen, fifteen hours of practice in...a week.
Juliet: Wow, I had no idea you were so serious about bowling.
Shawn: Quite serious, quite serious. Matter of fact, LEGO wants to sponsor me this year.
Juliet: Oh, my God, that's great.
Shawn: They also want me to wear shoes made out of, I'm torn.

Shawn: (sniffs) What is that?
Henry: What?
Shawn: That smell. It's like, uh... It's like gardenia with a hint of mango.
Henry: What?
Shawn: Oh, my God. Did you take a bath?
Henry: Yes, Shawn. I took a bath.
Shawn: With bubbles?
Henry: It's this new soap that I'm using. It foams more.
Shawn: "It foams more"? Dad, it's called "bubble bath."
Henry: Well, I don't think it's officially called "bubble bath" if the bubbles happen accidentally, but whatever, Shawn.
Shawn: Who are you? Where is my father? I've accused you of being a lot of things in my lifetime, but metrosexual was never one of them!

Shawn: (about Marvin) He's cocky. He thinks he's on a roll, but I'm inside his head, Chief. And I'm about to hang a Lopez around the frontal lobe and shoot right out of his nose onto his vest. (nods head) You smell where I'm stepping?

Gus: You're gonna pay Shawn. You are gonna pay. Believe me.
Shawn: No offense, but it's tough to feel threatened by you when you're wearing that shirt. Is that a hibiscus?
Gus: It's not my shirt, Shawn. It's your dad's shirt. He had to loan me one because mine was covered in snot tears!
Shawn: I can't- Did you know he also takes bubble baths?
Gus: So did John Wayne.
Shawn: I know, but can you name one other guy?

Shawn: (to Lassiter) All right, come on. Let's go Simon Cowell.
