Trivia

Just before Shawn's garden date with Melinda, Gus reminds him that he has a girlfriend, to which Shawn responds,"In real life, not on TV." Likely a nod to the fact that James Roday and Maggie Lawson had an off-set relationship while on-set for the first four and a half seasons their characters were not together. See more »
