NEW YORK (AP):

Dule Hill was searching for the right word to sum up how it felt that some original crew members from his series Psych turned down other jobs to work on 'Psych: The Movie'.

"I think that is a..." he began. "Testament," interrupted his co-star, James Roday. "I knew where you were at."

And that pretty much sums up the rapport between the two actors who played best friends and screwball crime solvers for eight years on their USA series.

Their shorthand and chemistry was a large part of the show's appeal, plus running gags like how a pineapple was strategically placed in each episode like a 'Where's Waldo?' game to keep fans invested. The series went off the air in 2014 but they're back tonight for a two-hour TV movie.

"We didn't want to come back so soon that we hadn't been missed but we also didn't want to wait too long so that we had been forgotten," said Roday.

"This was the year that seemed the most right and the planets aligned and everybody's scheduled worked out."
