Did You Know?


At the beginning of the episode , Shawn and Gus are meeting with a client, Daphne. Daphne is played by Crystal Lowe, who also played the character Eden in season one, Scary Sherri: Biancas Toast (season one) See more »


At the end of the episode, Shawn is playing chess with his dad. Shawn makes a move with his knight putting his dad's king under attack and declares "checkmate". Which would have been legitimate given the surrounding pieces, but just before the credits roll, his dad is about to wipe off the board and the camera shows his dad had a rook on the baseline (H12) putting Shawn's king in check, making Shawn's move illegal. He would have had to move his king out of check before making his knight move. See more »

Shawn Spencer: True. So how could this be possible, class?
Shockley: Time travel. He cryogenically froze himself in order to travel to the future.
Shawn Spencer: No.
Goddard: He's a clone of the original!
Shawn Spencer: Know what? Never mind, guys. Just... save it for your online role-play.
