Quotes

Shawn Spencer: Jimmy, what is it exactly you'd like for us to do?
Jimmy Nicholas: Well, uh... one of our friends from our old school told me about your company. And even though it sounds kinda gay, I thought I could hire you to come down to the track and maybe, uh... psychically figure out what's wrong with the horses.
Burton 'Gus' Guster: Okay, first of all, you ride on the backs of mounts while carrying a whip. That's MUCH gayer than what we do!
