Psych-pop-references-quotes-season-onePsych is one of my favourite shows nowadays, and there are several reasons to love it.

One, of course is the way both Shawn and Gus call each other in the different episodes; that´s why I´ve done the complete list of Shawn and Gus Nicknames on Psych. And another big reason is the whole bunch of pop references in Psych.

And that´s my new project, I´m doing the whole list of Pop References Quotes of Psych in every episode.

Here I start with season one.
