I can't believe it's taken me this long to figure out that a pineapple figures in just about every episode of 'Psych'. It was the hideous Hawaiian shirt in the horse-racing episode which had a pineapple in its design and the pineapple upside-down cake in the episode about the other fake psych which finally clued me in to the gimmick. And then I remembered how Shaun gave a pineapple to the judge in a case from an earlier episode.
I should have realized there was a reason for Shaun and Gus to be holding pineapples in the promos.
What I'd like to do now is find a list somewhere online of all the pineapple references that have appeared on the show. So far all I've found is a "pineapple club" in some 'Psych' forum, but they don't have a complete list. And as is the case with a lot of bbs, you have to join 'em to talk to 'em. Forget that!
(No offense to the Pineapple Clubbers, but the closest I get to being a joiner is playing Snug in "A Midsummer's Night's Dream".)
So if anybody out there knows where I might find a comprehensive list of the 'Psych' pineapple references, let me know. I may have to order the first season via Netflix to check out each episode and compile my own list.
Not that I'm complaining; it should be fun. Kind of like looking for Hitchcock's cameo in his movies, or the bunny on the Playboy covers, or the Nina's in the sketches by Al Hirschfeld.
