Psych is a great fun show, and more so the chemistry and relationship between Shawn and Gus. And all those little fights they have, when Shawn says “Gus Don´t Be” and adds a crazy phrase most of the time. Well, I decided to watch all the episodes again (It´s not that hard of a job I might add), and find every time Shawn says “Gus Don´t Be”, there are even times when other characters say “don´t be”s.This list of Gus Don´t Be comes to join all of those pieces about Psych I´ve done like the complete list of Shawn, Gus, Lassiter, Jules, Henry, Chief Vick, Woody and McNab aliases and nicknames and other stuff like the pop references from Psych. (Update) I also completed the full list of “I´ve heard it both ways” .
Without further ado, the complete list of “Gus Don´t Be”s.
