Ode to Psych

Psych is pretty much the best TV show ever. I'm serious. I think it's moved into my number 1 spot (ok, I don't know if anything will ever beat Gilmore Girls, but you get the picture.) If you've never seen it, you are totally missing out. It's not on right now, and I am sad. It will premier again in January. If you don't know what it's about, here is a brief synopsis: Shawn's dad was a detective, and trained him while he was growing up to be a great detective, but Shawn doesn't want to be a detective, so he pretends to be a psychic instead. Him and his best friend Gus work for the Santa Barbara Police Department, solving crimes while convincing everyone he's psychic. He's very witty and smart, and soo funny. I'd thought I'd entertain you with a few of my favorite quotes. And believe me, I had a HARD time choosing.

Shawn: Ahem. My pilot's license? It's out back in the Cessna. Or perhaps your referring to my license to kill. Revoked. Problems at the Kazakhstan border. I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you....which I can't do, because my license to kill has been revoked.

Bad guy: But know this: One stupid move and I've got more than enough plastic bags for your body parts.
Shawn: Note to self: call Hefty with commercial idea.

Shawn: Gus, don't be Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Marzipan.
Gus: Azkaban!
Shawn: I've heard it both ways.

Shawn: (In a morgue): Gus, you have to be covered up. You're a cadaver, and cadavers don't wear Abercrombie and Filtch.
Gus: It's Abercromie and FITCH, and no you havn't heard it both ways!!

Shawn: Look, it's not important that it was me that saved Lassie's life, or that I was right, or that he should have listened to me from the start, because I was right. The important thing is that you're unharmed...and that it was because of me, and I was right.

Shawn: Well, it could be anyone, Lassie has tons of enemies.
Gus: His ex-wife
Shawn: His mailman
Gus: His Landlord
Shawn: Bigfoot
Chief of Police: Well lets focus on the ones that Detecive Lassiter actually busted.
Shawn: Well that only rules out Bigfoot. Which, by the way, little known fact: Bigfoot...he only wore size ten!

Shawn: Could you check for a John Doe, please? Or actually, could you look up all the Does...Tai Kwan, Cookie, Play, Do Si...

Shawn: I'm not into the whole Tony Robbins motivational thing...I'd prefer his brother Baskin.

Ok, so I could go on and on and on, and I know it's funnier if you've seen it, but maybe this will prompt you to check it out.
Stick it out through the commercial, it's worth it.

We have liked Psch since the very beginning - which seems like a long time ago. Fun quotes.

Dani said...

Your #1 show huh? So where does that put Saved by the Bell? I always thought that was your fav :)

Jill said...

Haha, yes. I still love Saved by the Bell. I've been watching it a lot lately with Tanner and Nathan, and it's cheesy, but it's still funny. But seriously. I'm bringing Psych home over Thanksgiving, and we're watching it. I can't get enough.

Jill said...

It's in the 4th season now, so it has been awhile Lorraine. But it just gets funnier and funnier.

Sounds like a fun show. I've never even heard of it. I think I'll be watching it come January. Thanks!

Jill said...

Haha, no problem Sayda. I think my family thinks I'm a little obsessed, but those who I convince to watch it with me like it too. I promise you won't be dissapointed!
