Psych (2006–2014): Season 1, Episode 10 - From the Earth to Starbucks - full transcript

Inspector Lassiter is depressed enough to seriously consider resigning on account of an old case he feels unable to crack as isn't even officially ruled a murder. Shawn decides to save his nemesis by solving it and cuing Lassiter enough to believe he can claim credit. The victim is an astronomer, the observatory project partner of Hugo. Shawn uses pa's gardener plant expertise to find foul, then infiltrates as (utterly inept) planetarium guide, teasing Gus whose secretly admired girl actually works there. Suspects include a stealing janitor and anyone who could know about Hugo's great ambition.

Shawn: I need 80 cents.
No, you don't. You need to put back two of those extra candy bars
that you just picked up.
Dad, you don't understand.
I can't put back one of these.
That would be like saying one of these candy bars is less worthy than the others.
And I can't play those kinds of favorites.
All right, fine. Enjoy your dilemma.
In the meantime, don't drag Gus into it.
Thanks, Mr. Spencer.
Henry: No problem.
Switch places with me.
No. Why not?
Because then you'll try to take whatever money I have left.
And when have I tried to do that to you?
Wednesday and Saturday.
Gosh, you guys have scary memories.
Next in line, please.
That's you. No.
Shawn, come on. That's you.
Okay, so, all of these?
Oh, my gosh! It happened here?
The one-millionth customer.
I'm sorry.
Don't be sorry, kid. You won!
He won? He won what?
All kinds of things. Gift certificates, that cool bike up there.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have it! Our one-millionth customer!
Can I use one of my gift certificates now?
Cool! Isn't it awesome?
Isn't this cool, Gus? How lucky am i?
Amanda: Thanks for doing this.
Shawn: Oh, don't be silly. Are you kidding?
Go out spur of the moment with a sexy gal
who likes quirky dive bars as a starting point
But then is also open to seeing where the night goes, you know?
You could've thought I was weird asking you out
because you walked by my counter.
I don't call that weird.
I call that blind, dumb, stupid, awe-inspired luck.
I'm gonna get drinks.
Two vodka sodas.
I've just decided I am going to experience life.
You know, try new things.
I signed up for a painting class today.
You know, they make the kind of paint you can eat now.
And I'm giving new focus to my job.
can I ask you a question?
Did you just get out of a relationship?
How did you know?
Just a wild guess.
Was it
Are you sure you should be out dating already?
Yes, of course.
He was cheating on me.
Cheating? Yeah.
And the stupid thing is I thought everything was going really well, you know?
And then he just started getting all weird the last month.
Lying, going through my stuff,
my address book, my jewelry.
Finally, Friday he tells me he's going to watch the game at a friend's.
A co-worker of mine spots him over at the Eastland Center.
He may not accept it yet, but we are definitely finished.
Thank you. I hope you don't mind being a rebound.
Oh, I usually prefer it.
But not in this case.
Why not?
Primarily because he's not cheating on you.
Look, he took your jewelry because he's trying to figure out your ring size.
He took you to tiffany's to buy that fancy necklace
because he's really trying to scout out what kind of stones and settings you like.
What about last Friday?
Oh, come on. The Eastland Center?
There's no bars or clubs there. He wasn't there with a chick.
He was probably in the north side of the parking lot
at Robbins Bros., picking out the ring.
My address book?
Called your parents to ask for your hand. He's doing it right.
Do you think I should call him?
I'll let you be a psychic on that one.
Ray? Yeah, I need you to tell me the truth.
If you lie to me, we will never speak again, do you understand?
About Friday. Who were you with?
Take your time.
Spencer. Why am I surprised?
Why are you wasted?
Hey, do you like scotch? Miss!
(INAUDIBLE) Carlton: Can I get two more of these, please? Thank you.
Listen, there is something I have got to get off my chest.
Is it your shirt? Please say no.
astound me.
Come again?
It's beyond astounding.
It is some of the most impressive reasoning I've ever seen.
Is there a punch line coming? Let's get to it.
I don't know how you do it.
I mean, it's not psychic-ness, we both know that's a crock of crap.
But you, sir, are unstoppable,
guaranteed arrest.
What's happening here?
Can I tell you a secret?
I wouldn't recommend it, no.
you know how everyone thinks my wife and I have been separated for nine months?
Two years. Two years tonight.
And I'm the one who keeps trying to fix the thing.
I mean... jeez.
...counseling, therapy, acupuncture, you name it.
I have tried to try to try it.
Well, I'm gonna let you go.
Don't drive.
You know, I used to be a good cop. Seriously.
Stunning arrest record. It was one of the best in the department.
I caught the back bay killer.
Yes, you did. I remember it well.
Although I had a tip. The blue sedan.
That was you?
It might have been. See what I mean?
Come on, you still had to put it all together, right?
Look, Spencer, the blue sedan was the key to the whole thing.
It was the murderer's car.
Yeah, but who had to run the plates?
And all those numbers and letters could have confused many a cop.
Spencer, stop, okay? I am done.
Here, I want you to have these. I don't need them.
I am over.
All right, just stop this. This is nonsense.
You're not over.
Look, you're a striking man with strong features,
eyes that women want to do cannonballs into.
You have great posture and penmanship the likes I've never seen.
No, I have officially hit rock bottom.
A month ago, I got this case, right?
A healthy 42-year-old astronomer dies.
Doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, spends all day
in an ergonomically-designed chair, charting the night sky.
Natural causes, that's what the coroner comes back with.
Does a full autopsy. No red flags. Nothing.
I know he was murdered. I just can't...
what? What? What is this?
...prove it!
The department won't even let me pursue it.
Come on, you'll figure it out.
No, I won't. I can't. And I've accepted that.
All right, look, lassy...
I believe in you. I really do.
You just gotta trust your instincts.
I just got engaged!
Oh, my god! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I got engaged!
Shawn: I'll never, ever see you again. Bye.
Stick with it, lassy. You...
you can solve this thing.
You're halfway there already.

(WHISPERS) check this out. Gus: What?
Hey, lassy.
What is it, Spencer?
How you doing? You okay?
All right. I'll bite. What's the joke?
Just want to make sure you got home all right last night.
From what?
From the bar. What bar?
You were at a bar? No, I wasn't at a bar.
I don't drink.
You don't drink?
Well, okay. Wine at weddings.
Occasional snifter of brandy.
Maybe a single-malt scotch.
Sounds like drinking to me.
Spencer, why don't you stop making up stories, okay? They're obviously bogus.
Okay, so you were not at Tom Blair's's pub last night?
I don't even know who Tom Blair's is.
Mmm-hmm. And how'd you get that sweet bruise on your forehead?
I had an altercation.
Yes, with a table.
Carlton: With a suspect.
If we're done, I would really like to move on with my day.
I get it.
Yesterday was
a tough anniversary for you.
Who've you been talking to?
I'll get out of your hair.
Okay. We gotta solve that case.
What case?
The one Lassister can't solve.
He's gonna hire us for a case?
Oh, god, no. He'd never do that.
So, we won't get paid? Exactly.
And we're just doing it for the glory? Nope.
We give Lassister all the credit.
In fact, I don't even think he can know we're helping him.
Dude, that's a good idea, Shawn.
I ditch out of work on the day we release three new products
to spend time on an unsolvable case
in which we won't get paid and someone else gets all the credit.
That, quite honestly, is some of the best nut-shelling I've ever heard.
We made a deal. Yesterday.
We're equal partners. That means we collectively decide
which appointments to make, which cases to take.
We have to live by that, at least for a day, especially today.
You're right. Thank you.
It's gonna be a problem, though. Why?
'Cause we've already got a meeting with the dead guy's widow.
When? Ten minutes.
Ten minutes? Look, don't worry.
I'm gonna do it in the chief's office.
Just need you to stand guard at the door, make sure no one catches us in there.
It's gonna double the excitement. Maybe triple it.
Now, come on, who's in?
Don't fool around.
You know I can't hold my hand like this for very long.
Gus, I get very poor circulation to the limbic regions.
And now my pinky's going numb.
I guess everything started to change at the beginning of last summer.
He partnered with his old friend, Hugo,
and they finally got accepted for eight months
on the new digital telescope at the Space Center.
Everything was normal for two weeks and then,
suddenly, Bryant started to work really long hours.
I see.
What do you think of this?
I like it.
It was a gift. A friend. He's a glass blower.
Would you say that's when he started feeling sick, Mary?
Not sick, just a little off.
Oh! We did cancel our Fourth of July trip,
so I guess it was around that time.
I'm sorry, something is really bugging me.
Your name is Lassister, too?
Yes, that's correct. Carlton Lassister.
But you're not affiliated with the detective Carlton Lassister who I met before?
Not in any way, shape or form. Different department.
Matter of fact, I spell mine with a "k."
Two of them.
Mary, is there anything you're leaving out?
Maybe something that's slipped your mind,
something you're not telling me because
it may embarrass and/or shame you.
It could be vital.
I know this probably isn't true, but I started to suspect that he...
was cheating on you.
Well, yes. How did you know?
A shot in the dark.
The long hours. He was consumed with his work.
He was different. Distant. I don't even like to say it out loud.
Please, don't.
Bryant wasn't really the type. We were planning a future. He wanted to try for a baby.
He was a good man.
Thanks again for coming in, Mary.
No problem, K Karlton.
If we uncover any... Carlton?
Yes, Karlton, with a "k."
Two "k"s. The second one is silent.
May I speak to you privately in your office, K Karlton?
We'll be in touch. Thanks.
What are you doing reopening the vallery case?
Reopening? Come on. That word has so many syllables.
That case was determined not to be a case,
despite detective Lassiter's best efforts.
Now, I need a whole lot of an explanation from you,
because, although you do make me laugh occasionally,
impersonating an officer is...
impersonating an officer? Please.
I told that woman I was in accounts payable.
Shawn, come clean.
I would like to solve this case for Lassister.
He'll never allow it.
That's why he can't know I'm involved.
I figure I can guide him through this thing, right?
Build him up, get him back on his feet again.
You're serious? Yeah.
I just feel like he really needs this.
I mean, look at him.
Okay, I'm in.
You're what?
What do you got?
My dad is not answering his phone. So?
So, he's always home, and he always answers his phone after two rings.
This is actually somewhat troubling.
Why? Fish derby is on.
What is this?
It's the Bryant vallery case.
The one from this morning?
And the rest of the week.
I predict we will solve it Friday at 10:01 p.m.
And then maybe watch some cable.
Sounds great.
And did you find a partner that's willing to do this with you?
Jules is in. My dad is clearly missing, or something.
Dude, that leaves you!
Gus, you get to step up in a big fat way.
You have one job. I have two jobs, Shawn.
I have presentations to memorize on three new drugs.
And while you were out drinking last night and taking on free cases,
I was up half the night dreaming about
whether the gel caps are more effective than the tablets.
First of all, tablets. Always tablets, that's a given.
Secondly, I've been having this reoccurring dream
where I'm flying over Auckland on the back of a swan made primarily of cocoa.
His name is clem.
But your dream was pretty interesting, too.
And thirdly, I guarantee you that after you hear this reason,
you will definitely want to take this case.
I doubt it but give it a shot.
The victim was an astronomer. Yeah.
The guy died while he was working the night sky at the observatory.
What would make you think that would matter?
Oh, come on! I know you go down to the Space Center.
That's preposterous, Shawn. Thursdays.
I'm never down... in the afternoon, usually around 2:00.
Have you been following me?
Maybe. Sometimes.
To sharpen and refine my tailing skills, yes.
This is exactly the sort of thing I was talking about, Shawn.
Okay, I apologize, Gus, I do. But it's all good.
So you like astronomy. I accept that.
This conversation is over.
Okay, don't go all Vincent Gallo on me.
We're just getting started, man.
Look, some guy dies at a Space Center that you frequently sneak off to.
We gotta get down there and we gotta do some serious space digging.
No, we don't. As a matter of fact,
now that I know that you're tailing me while I'm at work,
get ready to get lost in my dust.
Okay. Dust?
What, are you going off-roading?
I'm gonna be un-catchable, like a jackal.
Like a jackal?
How about I just tail you to the observatory?
Consider me stealth, Shawn.
That's weird. It's like you're a bobble head.
Excuse me, I have an annual pass and...
Oh, I'm sorry, sir.
Didn't see you standing there, you know, being so stealth-like.
(OVER INTERCOM) The jackal has arrived.
Gus: What are you doing, Shawn?
What are we doing. Dude, we're undercover.
We are not undercover. Sure, we are.
I'm the employee, you're the customer.
I am the customer.
See? You're already in character, like don Cheadle!
I'm not involved with this case.
I only need you for a minute.
Like when Kenickie needed Danny Zuko.
And you get to be Travolta in the analogy.
Tomorrow, they're training me on the motion simulator.
Tell me you've never wanted to take a ride on one of those things buck-naked.
No, I haven't.
Sure you have.
I'm only here for a few minutes, anyway.
That's all I need.
Shawn: Look, there's this creepy janitor that lurks about.
I want you to distract him while I grill planetarium girl.
You are not grilling Jessica.
She's just interning here until she gets her college units.
Jessica? Yeah!
How do you know her name is...
Oh, Gus. What?
You haven't been coming here on Thursdays to study the stars.
You've been coming here for her!
Do you love her? Shut up, Shawn.
You're in love with her. Shut up, Shawn.
I'm gonna go hook you guys up. No, Shawn.
She is my co-worker and I have the inside track.
Listen, there are ways to go about doing this.
You don't just walk up to somebody at their place of employment
and start working them over. You've got to have a plan.
Do you have a plan? Of course I have a plan.
Well, would you mind clueing me in, please?
All right, listen.
She's been through a lot lately. She just had...
broke up with her boyfriend.
How'd you know that? It's my curse, apparently.
Well, since she's just off a break-up, I gotta move gradually.
Just go over there and ask her out. Get her digits.
Shawn, this is a quality girl. That means I got to put in quality time, okay?
Oh, here she comes. Act natural.
Hey, jessie,
do you know Gus?
Yes. Gus is a regular.
That's right.
You know, I went to high school with him.
Of course, I didn't hang out with cool kids like Gus in high school.
He was a C.I.F. wrestling champion back then.
True as toast. And in college, he was a Heisman candidate
till he blew his knee out.
Don't act all surprised. We were all following you in the newspapers, man.
You're kidding.
Well, he is, actually. I don't kid, ever.
I idolize this guy. The coolest dude I have ever known.
Wow, Gus, it seems there's a lot I don't know about you.
Well, there is... hey, you guys should totally talk, you know?
Share stuff and whatnot.
But don't let this guy grill you too much.
Yeah, well, I'd love to, but I have to start the planetarium show.
Yes, she has a planetarium show to start. Oh, can I do that?
Have you been trained on the show?
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, jess, I just did the checklist, like, an hour ago.
Perfect score. Uh...
question 18 has a typo.
Okay, great! Go ahead then.
Are you serious?
Oh, this is great! Great.
All right, I got it. No worries. No worries. I got it.
Thanks, Shawn.
That guy. You heard about Pluto?
It's messed up, right? Mmm-hmm.
Here's the Bryant vallery file.
The what? Wait... the astronomer?
Yes, and I just finished the follow-up with Mary, the widow.
You what? You asked me to.
I did? It was in passing.
And wow, did it ever pay off!
You were right about the affair. I was?
Yeah, the wife totally suspected it. She what?
That he potentially was having an affair.
Well, isn't that interesting?
I want to re-interview everybody.
And get me a copy of the coroner's report.
I told you there was more to this case.
Hello, ladies and gentlemen.
I will be your narrator.
My name is aurora borealis.
There are over 400 stars
in our galaxy.
Maybe more. No one knows for sure.
Many have said that the universe is even larger than the Indian Ocean.
And that is why it is called
Ah, yes.
Our glorious constellations. There they all are. Take a look.
Over here we have one with a guy
holding some sort of thing.
Over here, our beloved olympic rings, all seven of them.
And here...
here's one with a fish.
You gotta name them.
Notice straight...
straight above you, the hammer of Jeff.
And over there in the south...
north. North,
you will see monkey with rash.
The Egyptians used to set their clocks by him.
Oh look! There goes an asteroid. Comet.
Comet! It's what they named that cleaning solution after.
I know it may stink when you leave it in the sink
but, boy, oh boy, does it clean!
Is there a reason you're standing so close to me?
Just looking.
Yeah, well, that's the great thing about looking,
you can do it from far, far away.
And now, ladies and gentlemen,
I implore you to enjoy
the majesty of the heavens.
You work here?
No, I just happen to own my own Space Suit.
A smart-ass. I like that. Get over here, kid.
Do me a favor.
Keep your finger on the space bar while I adjust this.
Like this? Uh-huh.
You're gonna trust me with this?
I don't have a lot of other options, do i, Space man?
I gotta be honest. This seems like a job for two, no?
Sometimes it is.
But once the scope is in place, all you got to do
is watch the monitor, hoping to catch things that nobody else has.
You know, if you got a partner, you can switch off,
you know, rest your eyes, maybe make calculations on what you've seen,
or just break up the silence of staring into the unknown.
So, where's your partner?
Yeah, well that's the bad part of it.
He passed away not too long ago.
You know, the buddhists have this saying about moving on,
honoring the work... but I don't remember it.
What I do know is that I realize I'm too old to be doing this stuff all alone.
So, you're continuing the work, huh?
Bryant would return from the grave if I didn't.
You know, we petitioned for five years for use of this scope.
And we got lucky. No, no, no. No, no. Don't touch, no.
I mean, once you get in here, you gotta find what you're looking for, fast.
We had eight months. Bryant saw six.
Eight months seems like a good chunk of time.
Not in astronomy.
See, once you find it, you gotta track it.
Okay? And then it's not a discovery until you chart it
and then it goes around again and then you prove it.
Must get lonely.
I let you in here, didn't i?
Look, I just talk. You know? I've got the gift of gab.
Jeez, I'll talk to anybody, I suppose.
So, you still haven't found what you're looking for, huh?
No, but when I do, you'll read about it, believe me.
You'll read about it.
Jessica: My real goal is to become an astronomer.
See something no one else has.
I don't even need to make a big, flashy discovery, or name a star,
or become famous like most of these guys want.
All I've ever really wanted is to know I made a difference.
That's great, knowing what you want to do since you were a kid.
That's a gift.
You know, you're a great listener, Gus.
Oh, well, it's easy to talk to you, Jessica. I mean, it's...
is something wrong?
They've been in there 45 minutes.
It's a four-minute show.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why
time travel is not only possible, but may have already happened.
Shawn: So, I met the other astronomer.
Nice guy. Chatty. Hiding something.
Something nefarious?
I don't know yet. How'd you do?
Please, Shawn. How do you think?
(GASPING) digits? You know this.
Nice! We're going out tomorrow.
It's all coming together, man.
Juliet called. She ran our dead guy's phone records.
We gotta meet her at the station.
You bet, let's go. Whoa! Not now.
5:00. Why 5:00?
Gus, I can't just leave willy-nilly whenever I want.
I have a job to do here.
I don't care what the coroner says. Healthy hearts do not just stop.
But you know what? I got a golf buddy who's a cardiologist.
I'm gonna run these by him.
Mind the store, I'll be back.
Okay, so we ran the home, the work, and the cell phone records of Bryant vallery.
We got nothing on the home phone, a few strange hits on the work line,
but when we ran the cell phone, we hit the jackpot.
We found a number that he calls, only from his cell phone,
all hours of the night, way too often for business.
Unless it's monkey business. Sweet!
So we contacted the cell phone company for the name.
The number is 555-019...
where is it?
Oh, here it is.
555-019... nine?
Wow, that's good.
Not really.
Shawn: So, she had an affair with a married guy and probably lied about it.
That doesn't mean she's guilty.
Shawn, you're confusing me. You're the one who loves to jump to conclusions,
and you're not even hopping towards this one.
Hopping? It doesn't track, Gus.
Why would she kill him? She broke up with a guy.
It's him. He dumped her.
So, why doesn't she mention to you
that her ex-boyfriend just bit the dust?
What's she gonna say? "Hey, how's it going? My boyfriend just died.
"He might have been killed. Maybe it was me."
(IMITATES CHORTLING) I doubt she chortles.
Damn, she was so damn good-looking.
And she still is, Gus.
Even if we have a who, we don't have a clear motive
and we certainly don't have the method.
We can't give up on our other suspects.
What we need to do
Is keep looking.
You're gonna set off the alarm.
Clearly, I have a security pass.
They gave you a security pass?
They gave dave the cheddar corn guy a security pass,
I merely stumbled upon it by happenstance.
And by happenstance, you mean?
I swiped it from his gym bag
while he was shaking a milky way loose from the vending machine.
Damn it! I...
what are you doing, Shawn?
What I don't have is a key.
Stallings: That's not right. What?
I'm sorry. I just... i...
I left my pogo stick in there and I just...
no, I mean you're not doing it right.
You gotta move upward if you wanna get the latch to disengage.
Let me do it.
Uh... don't you have a key for that, or...
for this room? No.
Big bad Bryant took it away a few weeks after they got here.
A few small items go missing and suddenly everyone gets suspicious.
Items such as?
A watch. A comb. Some mail.
Whose mail?
The dead guy, Bryant.
Did you read it? Well, of course I did.
You know, he became quite a jerk. I don't know if Hugo knows this or not,
but he was dissolving the partnership.
Apparently, he had some big plans for himself. I don't know.
Correspondence for jobs he didn't seem qualified for,
heading university departments, nasa...
Now. Who are you guys again?
We think something bad went down in there.
Yes, something bad did go down in here.
Shawn: Did you see anything?
No. But you know, the dead guy, he changed.
They were friends at the beginning.
Hugo was always being nice to him, you know?
In fact, Hugo's the only one around here who's nice to me.
Brings me coffee in the mornings,
although he brings it for everybody,
all four of us.
Three of us.
Stallings, I'll be nice to you, just do me a favor.
Stop stealing the gum out of my locker. Okay?
You spotted that? Sure did.
Hey, do you know how these books work?
Oh, they switch up every couple of hours. One looks, one writes.
Yeah, they do it from dark till dusk all the time.
Hugo's here.
How do you know that?
He gets here at the same time every day.
You could set your clock to it.
Hey, you should hurry. You don't have long.
Thanks, dude. Uh-huh.
Gus, come check this out. What?
Look, there's a page missing from this logbook.
I noticed it the first time I was here.
June 21st.
Gus: What does the book track?
It's like stallings said. It's like, every manual adjustment they make,
who does it, which guy was on the scope.
See, it looks like they switch shifts about every two hours. Right?
So, why remove this page?
It goes from 8:39 with Hugo to 10:42 with Bryant.
So the question is, what happened between 8:39 and 10:42 on June 21st?
Some bad juju.
We gotta get out of here.
Why? Why?
Gus, someone finds me in here, I could get fired.
Why do you keep running like that?
Jessica: Hey, you guys.
Hey. What's up?
Gus, about tonight...
oh, if you have other obligations, that's cool.
No, I just wanted to see if we could go at 6:30 instead.
That's perfect. That's even better.
Look, I need to borrow your motorcycle tonight.
You can use my little blue car.
Oh, yeah! Do that, Gus.
I get a little nervous on motorcycles.
Settled! Bye, jess.
Hugo: Think you want this one.
What's that in his case?
Tracking readouts.
Dude, it's just a bunch of paperwork. I saw it at the observatory.
Why does he keep it locked up like that?
That's a good question.
Morning, gentlemen. You up already?
I had to check the timers on the crab spray.
You need any help with that giant thing?
Nah, I can manage it.
Only got two more weeks of this before my time's up.
Might as well follow it through to the end.
You know what that means.
I have no idea what that means.
That means he's not at his house.
Shawn: Rainier's not exactly a high roller, huh?
Gus: No. Look at that.
It should say, "welcome to camp something."
Stargazing isn't the most lucrative field.
Well, you can make up to a hundred grand a year on the lecture circuit
if you're a name.
You're gonna break that.
I don't think so!
Whoa! What?
Oh, boy!
What is this awful purple stuff?
They're flowers.
Flowers? It's a garden.
It's a vegetable garden. These are flowers, weird flowers.
What are you doing?
Well, I gotta check this out.
Let Lassister do that.
Gus, Lassister has to come here on his own.
And he has gotta be right.
So, who you gonna get to check that out for us?
Well, who else do you know who spends all day in his yard?
Oh, you shouldn't have.
Dad, we need to talk business.
You're not answering your phone. What's going on? Did you even check it?
My phone's been fine, Shawn.
I'm just a little busy right now.
Busy with what? Things, Shawn.
I have things.
Woman: Henry, where are the towels?
Yeah, I'll tell you in a minute.
(STAMMERING) was that a woman? You have a woman in there?
What do you think?
Where did you meet a woman?
Are you really interested?
(STAMMERING) it's a question, dad. It's an enquiry.
On the internet.
Shawn, look, she's a very nice lady. Her name is Sylvia.
She runs a catering business, has two kids.
Would you like to meet her?
Oh, god, no! Are you kidding?
Good. Can we pick this up tomorrow?
Yeah, I'd be glad to.
You must have thought your dad dated again.
Honestly, Gus, I haven't given it a lot of thought.
It's been 15 years.
Yeah, you know what? It's fine. It's great. Good for him.
You wanna talk about it?
No. Good.
You left your plant there.
I know. Wanna go back and get it?
Okay, June 21st is missing from the logbook?
No, I'll check on that right away.
Sweet. So, does Lassister need any more help?
No, Shawn, he is on fire.
He's already had the autopsy test rerun, and he's contacted every relative he had.
Is that a personal call, O'Hara?
Yes. Wrap it up.
I think I'm onto something. I think he was killed by someone he knew.
I gotta go.
Bryant vallery opened a safety deposit box account in June.
Was it around June 21st?
What was June 21st?
I don't know. Didn't you say something about June 21st yesterday?
I've said so many things in the last few days. Refresh my memory.
Dude, you look sharp. Thank you.
I've got one more thing for you.
What's that?
You want me to wear a wire?
Just this little baby one.
Look, in the event that she actually did it, right?
She's not gonna suspect you.
Forget it, Shawn. I'm gonna sit down with her for 30 minutes,
ask a few questions and keep it cool, just in case.
Just in case she didn't kill the guy.
All right, here's a compromise.
Let me follow you. No.
Come on! From a safe distance. It'll be like, 30 yards.
Consider me stealth, Shawn.
Hey, be careful.
You know, we have a mirror in the bathroom.
You seem jumpy.
Me? Oh, no. No, no. I'm excited.
tell me about this guy you just broke up with.
Exes? Ooh!
Don't you know the number one rule of first dates, Gus?
I'm very comfortable talking about anything.
Well, there's not much to tell, really.
About a month in, I find out he's married.
Just my luck.
And then he kept calling.
He actually thought I'd be okay with the whole dirty scenario.
He just... he wasn't the guy I thought he was, in a lot of ways.
Wow, that's... that's great.
I don't know.
Hey, I'm sorry about having to go earlier.
It's just everything changed at the observatory
and I gotta get to work early tomorrow, so...
what's going on?
Well, don't tell anyone, but
Hugo and Bryant may have discovered a planet.
Get out of here! Yeah!
An extra-solar planet.
About six months ago, I think.
Bryant kinda clued me in the night they found it.
He was so excited.
They had to track their data, wait for the planet to come around again
and complete its orbit. Right.
So, it must be verified now.
I mean, you don't just call a press conference for nothing, right?
Hugo is over the moon.
Yeah, he's gonna be famous forever.
Do you have any idea how huge this is for someone's career?
Um... of course he does.
Shawn? I was in stealth mode! How did you find me?
You knew he was following you?
No, not at all.
Jessica, this is a good thing.
It means we don't suspect you anymore.
"We"? Suspect me of what?
I didn't think you killed him, Jessica. Killed?
And I hope this doesn't create trust issues for our future.
We just needed to establish motive.
Dude, we totally established motive!
Well, congratulations, Gus, whatever you are.
You've got your motive, whatever that is, but you no longer have a date.
No. Shawn: Jessie!
Jessica, hold on a sec!
Man, that's twice!
...and to the Santa Barbara space Center
for the use of their facility.
I dedicate this to my departed comrade, Bryant vallery.
(ALL CLAMORING) Professor! Professor!
When was the discovery made?
The 21st of June,
9:55 p.m., during a routine changeover between my partner and myself.
While readjusting some coordinates,
I inadvertently made what is certainly the discovery of my lifetime.
Which one of you made the actual discovery?
It was me. We traded off chairs every two hours.
This was completely by accident.
Woman: What about a book? Surely you'll have a lot of book offers.
(WHISPERING) Gus, you know what this means?
It's murder. It's...
no, it's motive.
That's what I said.
No, you said, "it's murder."
It's the same thing. Motive, murder, it's the same thing.
No, motive is the reason for doing it.
It's in the same family, Shawn.
Shh! Shh! Hugo: Now, this planet
has everything required for an earth-like structure.
It has proximity, it has the right orbit,
(CELL PHONE RINGS) It has its own energy source...
you've got to change that phone setting.
(SIGHING) jeez. Hello.
Shawn, what the hell do you think you're doing?
Look, dad, I can't talk to you about your love life, okay? I can't do it.
My love life? You still on that?
I'm talking about this foxglove you left on my porch.
Your little plant with the dirty roots. It's all over my welcome mat.
That was foxglove? What the hell is foxglove?
Some neighbor's cat could have wandered in,
chewed on it and croaked right in my front yard, Shawn.
Some foxglove has a chemical called digitalis in its leaves.
What, is it, like, poison? It's a medicine!
And you know how I feel about dead things in my yard.
Look, dad, I'm sorry. I gotta go,
I can't have two people solving my case at once.
Shawn, we should talk. (SIGHING) okay, fine.
I'll be at Tom Blair's's pub on Friday. Come by.
I got a date on Friday. Can you do Saturday?
Never mind.
Digitalis is prescribed for heart conditions.
I don't see how that helps us, Gus.
It can cause toxicity in someone who doesn't have a heart problem.
Wouldn't that show up in the autopsy?
That's the problem. You have to test for digitalis specifically.
No one would consider it if someone doesn't have a history of heart problems.
Hey, what are you doing here?
We just got our motive for murder, Spencer.
Hugo found out that Vallery was gonna take all the credit for their discovery himself.
Cut him out of it entirely.
Because he was on the scope when they made the find?
Yes. Maybe.
What are you doing here?
Well, we heard you had the motive,
so we rushed down here to volunteer our services.
Thanks, but I'll take this one myself.
Okay, well at least tell me about the poison.
What poison? I didn't say anything about poison.
You most certainly did. I heard it.
Clear as day. Must have slipped out.
I have been thinking about poison as a method, but I can't figure out how.
Would you like me to read your innermost thoughts?
Like deep, deep, deep ones.
Knock yourself out.
Okay, I just want you to relax.
Breathe normally. Close your eyes.
Can you feel it? Can... can...
You want to check the house, Hugo's house.
(MUFFLED) I am in the process of getting a warrant.
What did he say?
He's in the process of getting a warrant now.
The garden, check the garden.
It's buried there?
Something's growing.
Oh, I'm getting something. I'm getting... I'm getting...
oh, oh, oh... prince!
The artist formerly known as prince.
Shawn! Wrong again.
It's prince after he was known as "the artist formerly known as prince."
It's purple. Yes!
Yes! That's it! You're amazing.
Oh, the caverns of knowledge in that thing.
Here's the problem. We ran the toxicology report.
There's no trace of poisoning.
Of course. Thank you, detective.
So what you're saying is, he would've had to administer it very, very slowly.
Yes. That's exactly what I'm saying.
How do you poison someone slowly?
He brings me coffee. Although, he brings it for everybody.
All four of us. Three of us.
Coffee. No, I'm good.
Tea. Well, if you're going.
It had to be the tea. The leaves wouldn't stand out in the tea.
Hugo poisoned his tea.
Every day for six months.
Digitalis would cause arrhythmia in a healthy heart.
Which would disappear as soon as someone died.
Solved it! Shawn: No, you didn't.
Yes, I did. Yes, I did. No, you didn't.
Oh, that's right. You did.
O'Hara, call the coroner. Tell him to check for even the slightest traces of digitalis.
And get me a new pair of handcuffs.
I've gotta be off.
Carlton: Hi. Thank you.
Just part of the job.
Spencer, a moment of your precious time.
Are you sure we should be in here?
That night in the bar,
I mentioned my wife, didn't i?
Yes. Oh, crap.
What did I say, exactly?
That she wants you back.
No, no, I don't think I said that.
Maybe I sensed that.
You didn't sense it either, but thanks for trying to help.
To tell you the truth, I think I got some help on this case.
Really? Yeah.
Well, hey, man, we all get help sometimes, right?
It's the truly great ones that know how to accept it.
And if I may add one more thing, detective,
you astound me.
Second half to that joke?
No. No?
The press is asking for you outside.
Tell them I will be right there.
To tell you the truth, Spencer, sometimes I astound myself.
How's the knot? Tight.
All alone, huh?
That would appear to be the case.
It's a Friday night. What happened to Sylvia?
Would you believe that I didn't want to hurt your feelings?
Sit down. Have a drink.
You buying?
You're kidding?
