The city suffers a wave of robberies, which Lassiter fails to solve. The police chief still assigns Shawn to her priority, finding a nanny as her baby keeps her agonizingly awake all night. Shawn largely passes that to Gus, snoops about the robberies and soon suspects a link. The case moves into prominence after a murder. No single nanny fits the bill, but the most trusted nanny agency might. Written by

The Red Balloon Agency is a reference to the song "99 Red Balloons" by Nena. The song can be heard when Shawn fake proposes to Juliet and Gus interviews some of the nannies. See more
Shawn takes pictures of the crime scene photos on Lassiter's desk using his Motorola RAZR phone, pressing the same button rapidly to take several pictures in a row. However, this particular model of phone requires the user to save and name each picture individually before being allowed to take another; it would be impossible to take multiple shots so quickly.

Nannies are essential parts of today's working nuclear families.
They're babysitters who drive.
