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

When Shawn first surveys Malone's bedroom (at around 49 mins), the chessboard has a single soda can in the middle, the board is correctly oriented, and the chess pieces are in a (more or less) standard position. The next quick shot of the white pieces is the same. In the third shot of the board (at around 2 mins), a model of a dragon skeleton has been added to the center of the board, the pieces are randomly placed, the board is oriented incorrectly, and a different board is used (the brass plate on the front.)

Quotes

Burton 'Gus' Guster: [Walks into a ransacked hotel room] Looks like Johnny Depp stopped by. He he he he he.
Shawn Spencer: I'm sorry. Did that joke just come in a time machine from 1992?
