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

Trivia

At the 32 minute mark, the strange background sound is the sound the Whale Probe in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home makes. Star Trek IV was mentioned briefly in a previous conversation between George Takei and Shawn. See more »

Goofs

The opening scene featuring young Shawn is set in 1986, but one of the comic books his dad is holding is 'Checkmate' vol. 1, #28 by DC Comics, which had a June 1990 cover date. The other comic has an advertisement on the back cover for the film 'Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight' which wasn't released until 1995. See more »

Quotes

Juliet O'Hara: I don't ask questions I don't want to know the answer to.
Shawn Spencer: Ooh, then never ask your boyfriend if he thinks your sister's hot.
Juliet O'Hara: I don't have a sister.
Shawn Spencer: How about a boyfriend?
