Refrences to Peanuts
- In the episode "The Devil is in the Details... and in the Upstairs Bedroom" someone asks Shawn if he knows who Lucy is. Shawn replies, "She charges 5 cents for psychiatric help, and if she ever asks you to kick a football, say no". This is a reference to Lucy van Pelt from Peanuts, her psychiatry booth, and the football gag.
