There are few things in this world that get Lassie worked up as much as Shawn Spencer and his psychic routine. Now, couple that with Shawn getting the distinguished honor of being a legacy in a prestigious secret society (the same secret society that denied Lassie by making up a rule about not allowing law enforcement) and you get one jealous Lassie, which of course, leads to one funny story line. It was made funnier by the fact that Lassie then needed to enlist Shawn's help to solve the case and clear his pseudo-father-in-law's name. Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned how the Shawn/Lassie interaction was one of my favorite things on this show? Well, this is why. These two lovingly despise each other so well, I think I would actually be disappointed if I found out that they were BFFs in real life.
Competing for funniest story of the night was Henry ditching his son and their weekend together to work the secret society murder case and then lying about it. Of course the truth came out and when it did, Henry finally admitted (in A Few Good Men-style) that he didn't want to spend the weekend with Shawn because he's annoying. No harm, no foul though, because Shawn wasn't exactly dusting off the fishing poles either. Perhaps the most hilarious moment, though, was seeing that picture of Henry hanging on the wall of the secret society's headquarters. Now, that's funny!
