Psych was a detective mystery comedy-drama TV series
that aired on the USA network 2006-2014. The main character is a
consultant to the Santa Barbara Police Department named Shawn
Spencer, who has heightened observational skills and
near-photographic memory and uses them to convince people he
uses psychic abilities to solve crimes. During the fifth season
of the series, an episode paying homage to Twin Peaks
was written and filmed, featuring several members of the
Twin Peaks cast as new characters in an odd northwestern
town called Dual Spires.
The episode also features songs performed by Julee Cruise and
The average running time of a Psych episode is 42
minutes, but "Dual Spires" was allowed 7 extra minutes of air
time to accommodate the wide range of clues, gags, and homages
written in honor of the episode's inspiration, Twin Peaks.
Additionally, the DVD version of the episode runs an extra 12.5
minutes total, restoring scenes originally clipped from even the
broadcasted episode. The DVD version is the one studied here.
The former Twin Peaks cast members who appear here are:
Dana Ashbrook as Robert Barker
Catherine E. Coulson as Wood Woman
Sherilyn Fenn as Maudette Hornsby
Sheryl Lee as Dr. Donna Gooden
Robyn Lively as Michelle Barker
Lenny Von Dohlen as Sheriff Andrew Jackson
Ray Wise as Father Westley
The title of the episode, "Dual Spires", is an obvious take
on the name of Twin Peaks.
The detective agency run by Shawn Spencer and his best
friend Burton "Gus" Guster is called Psych, advertised as a
private psychic detective.
At 0:06 on the DVD, a chocolate bunny is sitting on Shawn's
desk. Shawn is known throughout the series for his love of
food and sweets, but, additionally, the chocolate bunny is
probably a reference to the box of chocolate bunnies found
in Laura Palmer's room in
Episode 0B: "Northwest
Shawn discovers a website that sells silent window shades,
invented by a woman in Washington in the early '90s. This is
a reference to the silent drape runners invented by Nadine

sign-off by a patent attorney at the time). Notice also,

difficult to read, but appears to actually relate to the
headline, "Dual Spires Celebrates 90th Annual Cinnamon

over and over. Town mayor Douglas Fir is a reference to the
beautiful trees in Twin Peaks that Agent Cooper was so
impressed with when he arrived in town; additionally, the
character of the mayor was written for David Lynch, but the
character was ultimately dropped from the shooting script
and Lynch was never approached about the role. The name of

When Gus doesn't recognize the name of the newspaper, Shawn
challenges him whether he knows the name of every small town
newspaper in California. Gus claims that he does, so Shawn
asks him about Ridgecrest, to which Gus responds, "The
Daily Independent is actually the local newspaper

used to live in Ridgecrest as a teenager; my friend David was a
delivery boy for the Daily Independent (I filled in

Dual Spires appears to be northern California rather than
Washington (where Twin Peaks is located).
It's a bit odd that Dual Spires would have an annual
Cinnamon Festival in that the types of trees that produce
the cinnamon spice are not generally grown in large numbers
outside of Asia and Indonesia.
On the map Gus brings up on his computer, the town of Dual
Spires appears to be near Highway 23 and not far from
Highway 41. Though there are State Routes in California with
those names, they do not look like the roads marked on the
At 1:13 on the DVD, a newspaper clipping on the Psych office
wall has the headline, "Spellmaster poisoned, psychic solves
murder." This is a reference to a first season episode of
Psych, "Spellingg Bee".
Gus asks Shawn if he thinks they'll have monkey bread at the
festival. Monkey bread is a sweet, soft bread sprinkled with
cinnamon, served in the United States, often at fairs and
similar outdoor events.
Being cimmamon fanatics, Shawn and Gus decide they want to
attend the festival in Dual Spires. Shawn checks his
schedule and finds he's free until next WrestleMania.
WrestleMania is an annual professional (fake) wrestling
event put on by World Wrestling Entertainment.
Shawn and Gus drive to the area near Dual Spires in Gus'
Toyota Echo, dubbed the Blueberry.
Its CA license
plate is 5PCI371.
Unable to find a road leading into Dual Spires, Shawn tells
Gus, "Dude, we're going for a walk...in a forest." This may
be a reference to phrases similar to "walk in the woods"
used in Twin Peaks to signify the dark mystery of
the woods around the town.
The Dual Spires town sign is similar to the one for Twin
Peaks. The sign indicates the town was established in 1918
and has a population of only 288, much lower than that of
The town of Dual Spires was shot on location in the real
world town of Britannia Beach, British Columbia, Canada.
At 3:11 on the DVD, both women at the cinnamon bun cart are
looking straight at the camera. It is probably part of the
running joke in the episode that everyone in town keeps
looking at Gus as if they've never seen a black man before.
There are apparently no cars in Dual Spires. Everyone either
walks or rides a bicycle. The local sheriff's station has a
rickshaw. Only near the end of the episode do we see that
Robert Barker has a
A little girl on her bicycle asks Gus if he's
Frederick Douglass. Douglass (1818-1895) was an
African-American former slave who became a renowned orator,
abolitionist, writer, and statesman.
The restaurant in town is called the Sawmill Diner, a
reference to both the Packard Sawmill and RR Diner in Twin
The jukebox in the Sawmill Diner is an old Wurlitzer,
possibly a model 1015.
I've not been able to identify the song playing on the
jukebox when Shawn and Gus walk into the diner. It kind of
sounds like Julee Cruise (who contributed two other songs to
the episode), but I'm not sure. I can't make out enough of
the lyrics to do a good web search. Anyone know the song?
The character of Robert "Bob" Barker is played by Dana
Ashbrook who played Bobby Briggs on Twin Peaks. The
name may also be a wink (Martindale) to Bob Barker, a
long-time game show host from 1950-2007, best known for his
35-year stint on The Price is Right.
When the boys sit down at the diner, Shawn tells Bob, "We
just need a little something to hold us over until
showtime," referring to the start of the Cinnamon Festival
festivities. It's now something of an ironic statement since
it was made in 2010 and in 2014 it was announced that a new
season of Twin Peaks would be produced for the
Showtime cable network!
Bob tells the boys that the diner is known for its
outstanding cinnamon pie and hot apple cider. The RR Diner
in Twin Peaks was known for its cherry pie and coffee.
Bob's wife, Michelle, is played by Robyn Lively who played
Lana Budding Milford on Twin Peaks. Her name of Michelle
here is probably a play on "Shelly", the waitress who worked
at the RR Diner in Twin Peaks.
Sheriff Andrew Jackson is played by Lenny Von Dohlen who
played Harold Smith on Twin Peaks. The sheriff's
name is also the name of the seventh president of the United
States, just as Sheriff Harry Truman's name on Twin
Peaks was also that of the nation's thirty-third
Upon hearing that Dual Spires has no cell phone reception or
internet, Shawn remarks to Gus, "Dude, we're doing
Witness." Witness is a 1985 crime-thriller
film about a Philadelphia police detective played by
Harrison Ford who is assigned to protect a boy in an Amish
community when the boy is targeted for murder after witnessing
one in the city. The Amish are a Christian religious
sect that eschew the use of modern technology. During the
aside, Shawn also mentions Danny Glover; he was one of the
actors in Witness, playing a crooked cop.
At 5:35 on the DVD, a decrepit old man in an old suit hands
off the cinnamon owl to Sheriff Jackson at the festival
podium. This is Mayor Douglas Fir, also referred to in the
newspaper article above, though obviously not played by
David Lynch. The elderly mayor is a reference to Mayor
Dwayne Milford in Twin Peaks.
The monkey bread Gus takes from the bakery table is not
actually monkey bread. A monkey bread loaf is round, with a
hole in the center; the loaf Gus has is rectangular, more
like Amish cinnamon bread. Notice that there is no evidence
that Gus has any intention of paying for said bread; he just
walks away with it!
When Shawn introduces himself to the Barkers as a psychic
detective, he also introduces Gus as his partner, Lodge
Blackmunn. The name is a reference to the supernatural Black
Lodge in Twin Peaks and, here, it is probably also
meant to evoke an association with "large black man", as Shawn has a tradition of
assigning goofy aliases to Gus throughout the Psych
Shawn probes the Barkers for a reaction by commenting he's
got a little something "under the nail", looking at his
fingernail. This refers to the small, typewritten letters
found under the fingernails of three murder victims in
Twin Peaks, Teresa Banks, Laura Palmer, and Maddy
Ferguson. This also refers back to earlier in the episode,
when Shawn and Gus received the email from underthenail.com.
At 8:43 on the DVD, notice that Randy Jackson's Cinnamon
King crown is also made of cinnamon. Randy seems to be a
combination of James Hurley and Bobby Briggs from Twin
Peaks. The name "Randy Jackson" also belongs to a famed
bassist and judge on TV's American Idol.
The body of Paula Merral is found wrapped in plastic on the
shore of the lake, just as Laura Palmer's was in Twin
Peaks. In addition, "Paula Merral" is an anagram of
"Laura Palmer". The piano music that plays during this scene
is similar to the Laura Palmer theme played when her body
was found in
Episode 0A: "Wrapped in
Dr. Donna Gooden is played by Sheryl Lee, who played Laura
Palmer in Twin Peaks. It is Sheryl Lee who opens up
the plastic to reveal the face of her "twin" here! Her
character's first name of "Donna" is probably a nod to the
character of Donna Hayward, Laura Palmer's best friend.
Dr. Gooden is frequently referred to as Doc Gooden; Dwight

Hawk was on Twin Peaks. The deputy here is called

Anything short of a huge downpour is hard to capture on
film, so at 10:28 on the DVD, notice that rain drops are
falling onto the lake's surface in the background, though
the actors don't react as if it's raining. They must have
had to get this on-location scene completed before running
out of daylight and had to pretend the rain was not
The intense crying evidenced by the Barkers here was first
seen with Mr. and Mrs. Palmer in Twin Peaks. The
more sympathetic crying fits by Jack (and Gus) is
reminiscent of those by Deputy Andy in Twin Peaks.
Bob Barker's crying and almost climbing on top of Paula's
body is reminiscent of Leland Palmer's breakdown at Laura's
funeral when he jumped on top of her casket as it was
lowering into the ground in
3: "Rest in Pain".
|The Psych opening titles of the
episode finally play at 11:00 into the story on the DVD. The
opening title was redone to evoke the flavor of the Twin
Peaks opening title. Psych's theme song is
even redone by Twin Peaks alumni Julee Cruise to
give it a more ethereal feeling:
Regular version Psych theme song
Julee Cruise version Psych theme song
In between the lines there’s a lot of obscurity
I’m not inclined to resign to maturity
If it’s all right, then you’re all wrong
Why dance around to the same down song
You’d rather run when you can’t crawl
I know you know that I’m not telling the truth
I know you know they just don’t have any proof
Embrace the deception, learn how to bend
Your worst inhibitions tend to psych you out in the end
I know, you know
I know, you know

Shawn: "It's like Driving Miss Daisy. Except you
get to be Miss Daisy."
Gus: "I don't want to be Miss Daisy, Shawn."
Shawn: "That means you'd have to be--"
Gus: "I don't want to Hoke, either."
Shawn: "I guess you could be Ackroyd."
Gus: "I don't want to be in the movie, Shawn!"
Driving Miss Daisy is a 1989 film starring Jessica
Tandy as Miss Daisy, a wealthy white woman in the U.S. south
of 1948, and Morgan Freeman as Hoke, her black chauffeur.
Dan Ackroyd played Miss Daisy's son, Boolie, a successful
businessman in the area who tries to get his aging mother to
accept help and accept Hoke.
At 15:32 on the DVD, there are coconuts sitting in Dr.
Gooden's office. This is likely a reference to the coconuts
Hawaii-phile Dr. Jacoby kept in his office/apartment on
One of the patients in Dr. Gooden's office is a myna bird.
On Twin Peaks, a myna bird named Waldo was owned by
Jacques Renault until it was assassinated by Leo Johnson.
Paula and Randy each had a matching earring, just as Laura
and James had two-halves of a heart locket on Twin Peaks.
At 18:26 on the DVD, the woman carrying the piece of wood is
played by Catherine Coulson, who played the Log Lady on
At 18:41 on the DVD, a man leads a white horse through the
town square. When they see it, Gus says to Shawn, "This town
is getting weirder by the minute." I'm not sure why they
should think so; a man with a horse in a backwoods town is
not all that unusual. Sarah Palmer saw a white horse appear
and fade away in her home just before her daughter Laura was
killed in Fire Walk With
Me and when her niece Maddy was killed in
During Shawn and Gus's bicycle chase with Randy, the song
that plays is "Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing" by Chris Isaak;
Isaak played Agent Chet Desmond in
Fire Walk With Me.
Gus suggests to Shawn that they should pitch the story of
this strange town to Mark Burnett. Burnett is a television
producer, known for his reality shows.
At 21:30 on the DVD, a ceiling fan above a staircase in the
Jackson house is seen; a ceiling fan above a staircase in
the Palmer house was a recurring shot in Twin Peaks.
Another ceiling fan is seen in the town library later in the
Shawn compares Randy to Andrew McCarthy in Pretty in
Pink. Later, Shawn compares Jack to Jon Cryer. Pretty in Pink is a 1986 comedy-drama
film starring McCarthy and Molly Ringwald, playing two high
school kids from opposite socio-economic classes who are
attracted to each other. Cryer plays Ringwald's best friend
who is secretly in love with her.
Sherilyn Fenn plays the town librarian, Maudette Hornsby.
She played Audrey Horne on Twin Peaks. The music
that plays as she's introduced is similar to Audrey's
theme(s) in the earlier series. Maudette is drinking a
Cherry Coke; a famous scene in Twin Peaks has
Audrey tying a knot in a cherry stem with her tongue.
One of the books on Maudette's desk appears to be
Telematic Society. This is a 1981 book by James Martin
of speculation on what the future will look like.
Some books seen on the shelf behind Maudette are a number of
volumes of Dominion Tax Cases and Carswell's
Practice Cases, relating to Canadian tax law and legal
decisions (the series was shot in and around Vancouver,
British Columbia, Canada). Also seen, strangely out of
place, is Written for Children by John Rowe
Townsend, a 1965 book subtitled An Outline of English
Language Children's Literature.
Seeing the tagged array of library books on the shelves,
Shawn and Gus realize the strange set of letters and numbers
they received in a further email from email@example.com was a
card number in the Dewey Decimal System. This is a library
book classification system invented by Melvil Dewey in the
U.S. in 1876.
While searching for the book that has the Dewey decimal
number that matches the email, Shawn mentions Jane Eyre.
This is a classic 1847 English novel by Charlotte Brontë
about the privations and changes of a girl who grows into
adulthood, marriage, and motherhood.
The catalog number sent to Psych is 796.352. Gus states that
the 700s are Sports and Recreation in the Dewey system.
That's more-or-less true; and the 796 portion is considered
athletic & outdoor sports & games.
At 25:06 on the DVD, one volume each of
in Print Authors (S-Z) and Titles (R-Z) is
seen on the library shelf.
The book that matches the Dewey catalog number sent to Psych
is Putt Your Way to a Better Life by Earl Windom.
This is not a real book and Earl Windom is obviously a
reference to Windom Earle from Twin Peaks.
When Shawn pulls back the Putt Your Way to a Better Life
dustcover from the book, it turns out to be covering
an entirely different book, Reincarnation and Rebirth
by Ann Power, Ph.D. This is another fake book.
Back at the diner, the old man who does the thumbs up and OK
hand symbols to Shawn and Gus may be a reference to the
decrepit room service waiter at the Great Northern Hotel who
was seemingly the host for the Giant in Twin Peaks;
the waiter also made various "positive" gestures.
A stuffed moose head is laying on the floor of the Barker
house. In Twin Peaks, stuffed animal trophies were
often seen, including a deer's head lying on a table at the
local bank in
Episode 0B: "Northwest
Passage". The moose head may also be an
ironic joke in reference to the real world Bob Barker
mentioned earlier, who, in addition to being renowned as a game
show host, is a staunch animal rights activist.
Bob explains that when Paula was a child, she once sent he
and Michelle a letter describing how magic white rocks were
making her mother Lucy crazy, and Lassiter says,
"Methamphetamines?" The stimulant methamphetamine hardens
into a white crystal at room temperature. "Lucy" was the
name of the receptionist/secretary at the sheriff's station
in Twin Peaks.
Shawn and Gus search Paula's bedroom for clues, just as
clues were found in Laura Palmer's bedroom in a couple
episodes of Twin Peaks.
While searching for Paula's secret hiding place in her room,
Shawn and Gus mention John and Joan Cusack. John and Joan
Cusack are brother and sister, both well-known actors.
The object Shawn tosses at Gus in Paula's room at 30:46 on
the DVD appears to be a
Shawn and Gus call an old acquaintance, Father Peter
Westley, at St. Attalus College in Santa Barbara to get a
translation of the Latin found in Paula's diary. The college
appears to be fictitious. Father Westley is played by Ray
Wise, who played Leland Palmer on Twin Peaks.
Father Westley actually originated before this episode of
Psych in the "The Devil is in the Details... and
the Upstairs Bedroom". Father Westley tells them that
Paula's Latin statements are
remarks on her popular boyfriend, "R", but she was secretly
seeing "J". In Twin Peaks, Laura Palmer's diary had
an entry, "Nervous about meeting J tonight," which turned
out to be a reference to her secret boyfriend, James
Meeting Maudette again at the library, Shawn remarks that
Gus would like her to be his date at Betty Boop Night at the
Roadhouse. The Roadhouse was a bar and night spot in the
town of Twin Peaks. Betty Boop is a cartoon character
created by Max Fleischer in 1929.
At 33:48 on the DVD, the names of the students in the Dual
Spires yearbook match those of people who worked behind the
scenes on Psych: Tara Larsen, clearance
coordinator; Jerry Pender, second assistant production
coordinator; Donna Leahy, production assistant; Dave
Hoodless, production accountant; Cherie Bessette, production
accountant; Dan Miller, assistant director; Ingrid Severson,
caterer/chef; Melissa Lukacevic, assistant director.
Jack Smith here may be an analog of Harold Smith on Twin
Peaks. Harold was a recluse who liked to write down the
stories of the people who visited him in his cabin,
composing a "living novel". Jack is a nearly blind man who
photographs the people he meets and thinks of each photo as
The shot of Randy cutting two-by-fours on a table saw is a
callback to various shots of logs and wood being cut at the
Packard Mill in Twin Peaks.
Shawn remarks that the nearly blind Jack snaps photos like
Jose Feliciano. Feliciano is a blind guitarist, singer, and
Shawn remarks that all the secret relationships in Dual
Spires are like General Hospital. General
Hospital is a long-running daytime soap opera on
American television, having been in production for over 50
Frustrated that no one in Dual Spires recognizes his
constant film and television references, he finally asks
Randy if anyone in town has ever seen a movie or TV series.
Randy tells him that the townsfolk get together every
Thursday night to watch reruns of Everwood.
Everwood was an American drama series that aired
2002-2006 on the WB network. Shawn then makes a comparison
of Randy to Treat Williams on Everwood and a
comment about the surrogate mother character Nina. Treat
Williams starred as the main character, Dr. Andy Brown, on
the series; Nina was another character on the series, played
by Stephanie Niznik. The reference to getting together on
Thursday nights to watch Everwood may be a reference to
Twin Peaks' first season, which aired most of its
episodes on Thursday nights during its intitial run on the
Surmising that Maudette and Randy were sleeping together,
Shawn compares her to Pamela Smart. Pamela Smart is a New
Hampshire woman convicted of conspiring to murder her
husband with her 15-year old lover Billy Flynn in 1990.
At 45:34 on the DVD, notice that Father Westerly chops a
hole with an ax through the library door to rescue Shawn and
Gus from the fire, but he doesn't damage the locked knob at all, yet
the door pushes right open. On a show like Psych, it's hard
to say whether this was a sloppy oversight or an intentional
Shawn and Gus notice that Father Westerly suddenly has white
hair when he shows up in Dual Spires. In Twin Peaks,
actor Ray Wise's character of Leland Palmer had his hair
turn white overnight (after having murdered Jacques Renault
in his hospital bed the evening before).
Fatherly Westerly tells Shawn and Gus that he owes them one
"because of that whole exorcism thing." Westerly's
appearance in the earlier episode "The Devil is in the
Details...and the Upstairs Bedroom" involved him being
framed for murder during a series of exorcisms.
Bob says that his great-grandfather was the founder of Dual
Spires after WWI.
According to the audio commentary of this episode on the
DVD, the portrait of Great-Grampa Barker above the fireplace
in the cabin is actually of actor Dana Ashbrook (Bob)
Shawn remarks that he was wrong about the town being from
Witness...it's The Village. The
Village is a 2004 film about a lonely village
surrounded by woods that house a dark, supernatural
presence, that constantly hovers around the village, keeping
the primitive townspeople within the village confines; at
the end of the film, it turns out the village actually
exists in a protected woods in the 21st Century, the legacy
of a man who wanted to disappear and raise a family away
from the modern world.
At the diner at 52:24 on the DVD, Jack is wearing a patch
over his left eye. He is...One-Eyed Jack, a reference to the
bordello and gambling house of that name on Twin Peaks.
He is also wearing a red suit and begins to dance, like the
dwarf in the earlier series. The music he selects on the
jukebox to dance to is "Kool Kat Walk" by Julee Cruise.
While eating cinnamon pie at the diner, Gus and Father
Westerly begin to discuss Ecclesiastes, one of the
books of the Old Testament of the Bible.
At the diner, Lassiter holds up his left hand before a
taking a sip of hot cider, proclaiming it, "a damn fine cup
of cider". Agent Cooper does the same thing in regards to a
cup of coffee at the Great Northern in Twin Peaks.
At 53:10 on the DVD, a very tall man orders pie at the
diner (listed as "Seven Foot Tall Man" in the closing
credits). He is a stand-in for the Giant in Twin Peaks.
At 53:11 on the DVD, a large plastic ice cream cone is seen
decorating the Sawmill Diner. A similar cone is seen in the
RR Diner on Twin Peaks.
At 53:14 on the DVD, a boy wearing a football helmet is
banging his head on the counter at the diner. Autistic
Johnny Horne was wearing an Indian headdress and banging
his head on a doll house in
Episode 0B: "Northwest
A couple of old school
Coca-Cola advertising signs are also seen in this shot.
At 53:17 on the DVD, Lassiter finds that his cider has
turned solid in his cup. Cooper's coffee turned solid in the
Red Room in
"Beyond Life and Death".
At 53:21 on the DVD, Bob starts walking backwards through
the diner as he buses tables. Bobby Briggs was known for
walking backwards in a scene in
Fire Walk With Me.
At 53:25 on the DVD, Michelle begins dancing in a manner
similar to that of Audrey Horne when she hears "dreamy"
music in Twin Peaks. During the dance, Randy begins
barking like a dog; Bobby Briggs and Mike Nelson barked like
dogs at James Hurley when they were all being held in jail
cells at the sheriff's station in
Episode 0B: "Northwest
Way in the background at 53:58 on the DVD, as Shawn and
Juliet walk out of the diner, notice that Bob has picked up
a framed photo (or maybe a menu?) and begins sort of dancing
with it with a pained expression on his face. Leland did a
similar thing with a portrait of Laura in
"Zen, or the Skill to Catch a Killer".
