Storyline

While detective Carlton Lassiter must drive the pregnant captain to hospital, Juliet O'Hara enlists Psych unofficially to start looking before the legal 48 hours pass into the disappearance of well-behaved nerd-knave Breyfogle. Examining his room suffices to realize the teen came into spending money and took two mates, fellow teenage comics-fans Don and Rob, to the nearby triennial convention TriCon. There Shawn performs as psychic and poses of Star Trek star Takei's assistant to snoop with true fan Gus into what turns out to be a planned series of crimes inspired by a comic. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Juliet O'Hara: You cannot be in the Chief's office!
Shawn Spencer: Oh, come on, she's not gonna know. You notice how no one ever looks in here? Why is that? What are you guys so afraid of? It's like the belly bias. She's actually a pretty kick-back lady when you give her a chance. I mean, look what she's done with this place - it's really warm in here. I know I can't stay away. And have you tried this chair?
Juliet O'Hara: Okay, you have five seconds to get your butt out of...
