The duo visit Henry, where Shawn talks to his father about the Lassiter situation. Henry promises to give Lassiter some help on the case, but also tells Shawn that he should stop giving Lassiter false hope as it's starting to look like he might never make a full recovery. Given that Gus is outside making a phone call, Shawn feels free to share his concerns over another issue: he and Gus are drifting apart. Henry assures him that this is only natural now that Gus is going to be a father and that they'll figure it out as long as he's always there for him.
Shawn and Gus arrive at the Cayucos address on the real ID and decide to break in. They find a big board full of photos and newspaper clippings before they are confronted by Alan Decker, Selene's husband. He tells them the story of Ronald \"The Bull\" Cole, a brewery CEO who is secretly a drug-smuggling arms dealer, and meanwhile Selene tells Juliet and Karen the same story from her perspective. Alan and Selene met when they were both sent to Cole's brewery works, he as a private investigator while she had to take photos of a comp claim. They decided to work together, and soon sparks started to fly. When they tailed a delivery van to a drop-off, they witnessed an altercation between Cole's bodyguard and a thug. A gun was left behind, but the police turned a deaf ear when presented with this evidence as they didn't believe Cole could possibly be a criminal. Intoxicated by the prospect of fighting crime alone, Alan and Selene got married by Alan's cousin on a whim. However, they soon realized Cole's goons would find them wherever they went and split up to stay alive. Alan figured he had nothing else to lose and kept investigating, whereas Selene moved on and found Gus. As she does not want to lose him, the trio decide to save him and Shawn before they can get into even more trouble.
Shawn and Gus arrive at the brewery with Alan in the back, but unfortunately security guard J. Ramsay does not believe Shawn's silly explanation as to why he's suddenly dealing with two unfamiliar faces. He's about to call this irregularity in to his boss when Gus performs some ventriloquism in a last-ditch attempt to be let through. Against all odds the trick doesn't make things worse and actually delights Ramsay, as he happens to be a huge Jeff Dunham fan. The ice officially broken, Ramsay happily opens the gate.
Henry: All male friendships die at fatherhood, Shawn. I tried to prepare you for this when you were younger.Shawn: I don't remember that.Henry: That's because you have a very selective memory.Shawn: Well, sure, what's the point of having a memory if you can't choose what to remember It's called America.
Shawn: I'll be honest, I didn't think we'd have to take our pants off for this.Phil: I didn't ask you to. You are like toddlers.Shawn: Well observed. Here's a question: can mine be parachute pantsPhil: You must leave.
Karen: [takes Woody's phone call] Woody, you should be here by now.Woody: Oh, don't be a Karen, Karen. Have you ever heard the term \"fashionably late\"Karen: You're the defendant.Woody: Class is class. Even when the state is trying to prosecute you wrongfully.Karen: Okay, get here now. You have a little reprieve because your public defender still hasn't arrived yet.Woody: Well, of course they aren't there, because they are me. Ta-da! I have decided to represent myself.Karen: [indignantly] Wait. Wait, what Noooooooo.Woody: Hear me out. This way, I can pocket the money they had earmarked for the public defender. I figure I can drag out the trial for six months, build up a nice little nest egg for myself, and then plead out insanity!Karen: Woody, I carved out 90 minutes for this hearing. And you can't just decide that you're an attorney.Woody: Chief, I wasn't born yesterday. I passed the bar. Is the judge going to be wearing this [shows marching band jacket] I don't want to step on his toes. I sent all the pertinent information to your assistant. [lies down on bed] I think you'll find it all checks out.Chipera: [to Karen] They're ready for us.Karen: [angrily] Woody, leave your house now. I will stall, okay And on the way, go over your statement. Stick only to the facts. You were not impersonating a doctor for fun. You were working undercover, for Chief Carlton Lassiter, who was in imminent danger from the people who were working at the rehab facility. And don't mention the surgery that you tried to perform.Woody: Oh, please, it was a small outpatient surgery, and I underbilled the insurance company.Karen: Okay, Woody, I have another call. Be here in ten minutes, or you don't have a character witness.Woody: Oh, I need an hour. I just shaved my armpits. I need to bronze...[Karen hangs up]
Alan: All right! I got the plan.Gus: We already figured it out.Alan: Guys, I've literally been studying the ins and outs of this place for months.Shawn: We know, and it's very impressive. But before you launch into hieroglyphics and string theory and whatever else you have on that corkboard, just... you're gonna want to hear our plan.Alan: Make it quick.[Shawn gestures wildly all throughout his explanation while Gus holds up the accompanying drawings and Alan slowly loses his patience]Shawn: We dig a trench and tunnel under the brewery, resurfacing on the inside. You, Alan, free-climb the barley vats and wait up top, next to the thermal exhaust port.Alan: There is no thermal exhaust port.Shawn: Gus reaches out his hand and pulls you through. Where am I I'm on the flank, serving up \"look, it's me, not a stuntman\" realness. There's a confrontation with a man holding a wrench, and we're all chased by motorcycles. You grab the evidence. We escape through a hole in the wall. Then, I find a house of windows.Gus: WhatShawn: A house of windows.Gus: WhatShawn: A house...Gus: Of windows.Shawn: You realize I'm not who I appear to be, yet my hair remains unchanged. We end up right back here, in this cottage, where I start to throw myself against the walls. [throws himself across the room and back] Then I stop for reasons unknown. And Gus weeps.Gus: [indignantly] You weep.Alan: What you just pitched was essentially the plot from the \"Take on Me\" video.Gus: Wow. He really knows his stuff.Shawn: That's not possible. Would you have gotten it without the illustrationsAlan: Never looked.

You don't have to be psychic to know that the people involved in Psych, the Blue Sky-era comedy about a fake psychic detective solving murders in sunny Santa Barbara, understand what fans love about the show and its characters. And when it comes to crafting memorable follow-up films to the series, which wrapped up its eight-season run in 2014, they know all the right buttons to push to keep fans entertained while advancing the plot just enough for it to feel fresh and new and not like they're living in a Bruce Springsteen song.
If Psych's latest return feels familiar, it's because we've been here before. Twice, actually. But I will gladly watch Psych movies until the end of time if they're all as fun and subtly meaningful as the latest outing in the fan-favorite franchise. In Psych 3: This Is Gus, Shawn Spencer (James Roday Rodriguez) and Burton \"Gus\" Guster (Dulé Hill) are back in action once more, this time attempting to track down Selene's (Jazmyn Simon) estranged husband (played by Heels' Allen Maldonado) so she can finalize her divorce and marry Gus before their child is born.
Still, one has to wonder how long the cast and creatives can keep this up. At some point, the zany antics that have defined Psych from the beginning could begin to border on far-fetched. I mean, Shawn and Gus probably won't be donning disguises and breaking into buildings in their old age (unless, of course, someone is murdered at their assisted living facility where they have adjoining apartments and they go full Only Murders in the Building). But as the third movie proves, we're not there yet, and there is still life left in this franchise. There are still stories to be told and laughs to be had as Shawn and Gus continue to feel their way through various milestones of adulthood. So as long as room exists for these characters to grow and mature, and as long as the Psych gang still wants to reunite and film a new movie every few years, there's no reason to believe they shouldn't. And there's no reason to believe Psych-Os won't continue to show up every time they do.
Fans of the popular series will delight in this \"threequel,\" which continues the franchise's tradition of great writing, quick wit, and entertaining chemistry between the ensemble cast. While Psych 3: This Is Gus' overall focus is on Gus' (Dulé Hill) journey toward marriage and fatherhood, the bond he has with Shawn (James Roday Rodriguez) remains a central theme. There's less psychic talk than in the original series, but Shawn's powers of observation remain highlighted, and contribute to the lively detective story. Psych enthusiasts will enjoy tuning in, and those new to the story world show may find themselves compelled to watch more. 781b155fdc
