PSYCH “Shawn & Gus in Drag (Racing)” Review

PSYCH "Shawn & Gus in Drag (Racing)" Review

Shawn and Gus hit the streets in this week’s episode of PSYCH, called “Shawn & Gus in Drag (Racing). When a stolen Lamborghini shows up with the thief shot dead in it, Shawn and Gus go undercover as… street racers?

The really strange part is that it works. A gang accepts their act after Shawn rigs his dad’s truck and nearly beats the leader’s (totally hot) Monte Carlo. They are then sent back in to get as much info as they can but when Shawn is nearly caught, Lassie and Julies save the day once again. At that point all the evidence points to the victim’s ex girlfriend as the murderer, but it’s a little too neat for Shawn so he keeps digging.

Unfortunately that gets both of the boys in trouble when the real killer turns out to be the leader of the gang. He takes Gus hostage until Shawn agrees to deliver the Lamborghini, which Shawn does but with a few extra “accessories” (as in some fruit in the tailpipe) that cause it to break down just in time for him to be arrested.

My favorite bits…

Shawn and Gus’ argument about the particulars of the movie ‘Back to the Future’.

Learning that America has never lost a war when donkeys were in use. Who knew?

Shawn throwing a single piece of popcorn at Lassie and the brief smile from him before they panned the camera away. Methinks that take may have been ruined but I loved that they managed to keep part of it since it was such a great little moment.

Shawn whining “Dad!” until his dad let them on the case.

Paget accusing Lassie of being the kind of guy who collects dolls

Laughing so hard at this bit I couldn’t breathe…
“They’re nobodies”
“Any by nobodies she means experienced street racers who also happen to dabble in flatulence.”
“What?”
“I’m sorry. stamp collecting.”
“It’s ‘philately’ Shawn.”
“No, I’m afraid that’s the word for ‘fart’.”

Shawn repeatedly throwing Gus into the cart so he could grab the cell phone and figure out where the next race was.

Shawn informing Tommy that they did have a lot of balls, four in fact, and a phantom one he calls Rigby.

Learning some interesting facts about the Chevy Nova.

Lassie not wanting to punch Shawn in the face.. until he badmouthed Reagan.

Gus telling Shawn that he was the “worst stormer-outer ever”.

Shawn going all badass and demanding to see Gus when he brought the car. I just love it when the normally funny guys show their tough sides.

Really wanting to see Tommy hit 200 mph and feeling almost sorry when he didn’t make it.

Shawn trying to sneak his little butt into the Lamborghini and getting caught by Lassie. The look on his face was classic.

The crew making fun of Dule for tap dancing and not taking shop class in high school and Tim talking about getting chickens to the storm cellar in the ‘Psych-Outs’.

Lots of humor as usual in this episode of Psych, but the fact that they added hot cars and a smidge of badass Shawn made it move up to being on my list of favorites.
