Trivia

This episode marks the only time that Liam James (young Shawn) and James Roday (adult Shawn) appear on-screen together. Shawn would again share screentime with his younger self in the season 5 episode "The Polarizing Express"; however, by then, the role of young Shawn had been recast with Skyler Gisondo. See more »

Goofs

At the ending of S2E5, the waves behind Shawn and Gus appear stagnant, or unmoving. Furthermore, there are no wind effects or even tiny ripples in the beach water in the background. See more »
