Scary Sherry: Bianca's Toast - S1-E15

Trivia: In this episode, Chelan Simmons (Bianca), dies by getting electrocuted. In Final Destination 3, her other film, she also dies by getting electrocuted.


The Break-Up - S8-E10

Trivia: At the end of the episode Shawn and Gus show up at Jules' crime scene and she tells them they already have a detective who is in the kitchen alphabetizing, likely a nod to USA Network's OCD Detective Adrian Monk from the show "Monk" which was set in San Fransisco.


Shawn Interrupted - S6-E6

Trivia: There is a scene where Shawn, Gus, and Vivian are sliding in an open hallway trying to hide from the orderly who is taking Bernie on the elevator to his lobotomy at the mental facility. The scene is a total re enactment of The Breakfast Club movie scene where Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, and Anthony Michael Hall are sliding in an open hallway trying to hide from Dean Paul Gleason when they broke out of detention. Molly Ringwald guest stars in this episode too. (00:34:15)

Dead Man's Curveball - S6-E5

Trivia: When Danny Glover tells James Roday "I'm too old for this crap", it is a slightly cleaner version of the catchphrase he uses in the Lethal Weapon movie series. In the movie he says "this shit". (00:25:20)

The Polarizing Express - S5-E14

Trivia: When Skylar Gisondo is talking to Tony Cox and James Roday about "how we changed, sometimes from week to week" it is a sly reference to the child actor change in season 5 from Liam James to Skylar Gisondo. (00:21:05)

Cloudy...Chance of Murder - S1-E12

Trivia: This episode was remade in the final season, titled "Remake, aka Cloudy...with a chance of improvement". The cast and crew considered it to be the weakest episode made in the series, and wanted to improve on it.

Remake A.K.A. Cloudy... With a Chance of Improvement - S8-E3

Trivia: Ralph Macchio features as a prosecuting attorney. At one point, Gus speaks a quote from "My Cousin Vinny", and the other attorney calls it "a terrific film." Macchio objects, saying "it's OK... Decent at best." Macchio featured in that movie. (00:33:05)


Gus Walks Into a Bank - S3-E8

Trivia: Alan Ruck, who plays the bank robber, is (arguably) best known for his role in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, where his character's name is Cameron. In this episode, Ruck plays a bank robber who takes hostages, including Gus. The SWAT commander that attends the bank robbery (a character who hasn't existed before) is named Cameron. Possibly a deliberate choice given Psych's frequent pop culture references.ADDITIONAL: Series 8, Episode 3 - Ruck co-stars as a news weatherman; when Shawn introduces himself, he says .".and this is Gus, my black Cameron" - a much more clear reference to the Ferris Bueller character.


Heeeeere's Lassie - S6-E11

Trivia: When Shawn and Gus ask Henry about previous residents of Lassie's condo who've died mysteriously, the first person Henry mentions is named Ray Brauer, which was the name of the dead kid in "Stand By Me."
