Boy how I cried with this one! My favorite show of the last decade was ending on an emotional note in an episode where Shawn and Gus help Detective Lassiter enlist the help of Henry and Woody to solve the murder of a real estate executive. Meanwhile, Shawn struggles with a life decision.
This collection of characters you have grown to love won´t be bringing any more episodes to our screens; and that is something that makes me sad. But we had 120 great episodes and we can go back and watch them whenever we want.
That´s the good thing.

[saying his goodbye to Gus over a DVD video message] And so, I accept that this is my fatal flaw. I just quite engage all the way when I really need to, when it really matters, when the chips are down… I guess, all i’m saying is, I’m sorry Gus. I’m sorry that I cant do goodbyes. I tried so hard to tell you, man, but I just- I just suck at the real stuff. But you know that… But you’re gonna be fine, you’re gonna be better than fine. I just cant help but think that the only problem you had this whole time… is me. And that I’ve kept you from the life you deserve, you know, the life you’ve earned, the life you’d have if I hadn’t barged into your office eight years ago and said, ‘We’re gonna play detective… whether you want to or not.’ I love you, man.
Henry: He didn´t tell you either?
Shawn: Woodrow, I´ll miss you most of all. Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold.
[saying his goodbye to Lassiter over a DVD video message] Carlton Lassiter, Chief Lassie, The Lord of Sternbush. I am proud, honored, and baffled to call you my friend. But it’s true. It’s also true that you might be the only other person on the planet who loves Jules as much as I do, even though it’s different. You’ve always had her back, and for that I feel I owe you more than the others, so, time to come clean. Regarding my methods and the way I solve cases, you’re the only one that’s ever suspected that, uh… The truth is, I am not-
Gus: My name is Burton Guster.
I’m a realist, a dreamer, an adventurer, a lover of Harry Potter, vintage safes, all things Jamaican.
And I wanna spend the rest of my life making you the center of my universe.
A universe that contains a solar system with nine planets.
In We Bought A Zoo, Matt Damon promises that if we can have 20 seconds of insane courage, something great will come out of it.
Well this is my moment of embarrassing bravery.
Uh, that didn’t play out the way I planned it.
Can I take the speech over? My name is Burton Guster.
Gus: Shawn, We Bought a Zoo lied.
Gus: I am here.
I found myself, and not at a 9:00-to-5:00, but with my closest friend, solving crimes, living life to the fullest.
And if we have to do it a little further up the coast, then that’s what we’ll have to do.
So be it.
Chief Vick: Mr.Guster.
Shawn: You guys, look at us. e’re all here.We can set up shop here.
What? We c–we can solve crimes.
And, chief, we’re gonna be twice as efficient now.
Wanna know why? ‘Cause we have two steering wheels.
Look at Gus. He’s unstoppable. He’s like Wesley in To Wong Foo.
Chief Vick: What? Um, but, Mr.
Spencer, we already have a guy.
Shawn: What? Oh, really? That’s funny. I don’t see him.
Jules: He’s in the kitchen, alphabetizing the pantry.
Shawn: This is gonna be so incredible. Just like it was before, only bigger and better, with more wineries. Except for one thing.
Shawn: (pointing at Juliet) You.
I made the biggest mistake of my life by leaving Santa Barbara without saying good-bye to Gus, and I am done cowering from the big decisions.
I’ve wanted this for long enough.
So it’s gonna happen right now.
Jules: Shawn? Wh–is–is this the time?
Shawn: You bet your ass it is.
Juliet O’Hara, I do not believe in love at first sight because I didn’t even need to see you to know that I wanted to spend forever with you. (Turns to Gus)
That didn’t make a ton of sense, did it?
Gus: The center of your universe, nine planets.
Shawn: Gus, has that Pluto line ever worked on anybody?
Shawn: I’m gonna get back in there. (Turns to Jules)
Scratch that. I have spent my whole life running from one thing to another. Quitting and running and quitting and running and pretending that my destiny was to drive a wienermobile.
Gus: He was young and afraid of commitment.
Shawn: That’s true, but I’m not that young anymore, and I’m also not afraid. Because when I’m with you, Jules, I’m just fearless, and–and I’m unbreakable.
Gus: Like Samuel L. Jackson.
Shawn: No, Sam Jackson was the glass man.
Gus: Not emotionally, Shawn.
Shawn: Okay, I need you to dial it back just a teeny bit.
Shawn: I know that I come with baggage and a best friend who’s not going anywhere ever.
But I promise you that from this moment forward, the only running that I will be doing is into your arms. And I will never stop holding your cold little hands or losing myself when I wake up in the morning and look at you and recognize how frickin’ lucky I am.
Gus: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh.
It’s happening. Say yes.
Shawn: O-okay, but technically, you just said yes to Gus.
Jules: Well, ask me, Shawn.
Shawn: Okay. Jules, will you marry us? Me. Mostly me.
Shawn: Even though Gus is always gonna be part of the deal.
And then some day, he’ll have his own Juliet, and her name will be “Juli-ay” And she’ll be Jamaican.
Gus: Oh, yeah.
Shawn: And together, we’ll be one big, giant, frosted, black-and-white cookie. And we’re gonna have dogs, all rescues. And kids, probably before we’re 60.
Jules: Oh, way, way before 60.
Shawn: Oh, just marry me so that I can show you how amazing our life will be together.
Jules: Yes. Yes, I will marry the crap out of you, Shawn Spencer.
Now give me the ring.
And by that point I laugh/cry every time.
