    • Chuck: (to Jill) Look, you're taking the Matrix, OK? All wheel drive, touch screen navi, iPod capability and a full tank of gas. It's the perfect get away car.

    • (Morgan is trapped in the Buy More Door) Morgan: Jeff, open the door, buddy. Lester: Open the door. Jeff: Got it. (The outer door opens) Morgan: Okay. Nice, Jeff. Now can you open the door that is currently chopping me in half?

    • Chuck: Can I ask a follow-up question? Casey: You're about to leave through that window. Chuck: I rescind my follow-up question.

    • Casey: That's the Castle manual. I told you that's top secret. Chuck: Yeah, I know. So am I.

    • (Leader chases Chuck into the Gravitron) Leader: You need to come with me. Chuck: Um, you told Jill to shoot me. Why would I ever go anywhere with you? Leader: I'd rather not leave your body here on the ride. What if some kid saw it? Chuck: Wow, that's, uh...that's strangely considerate of you.

    Trivia (3)

    • At the carnival, when the Gravitron starts up, Chuck and Leader are pinned to the wall but Leader's gun falls out of his hand and tumbles out of sight. His gun should have been pinned to the wall too.

    • Featured Music: "Hot Mess" by Sam Sparro (Chuck and Jill make out in bed) "Knock Knock" by The Accidental (Chuck and Jill go out) "Can You Tell" by Ra Ra Riot (Thanksgiving dinner, closing scenes)

    • When Big Mike hits Leader you can clearly see his gun come flying out of his hands, but when they cut and show you the scene from the back as he lands in the pile of boxes, his gun is back in his hand.

    Allusions (2)

    • The title could be an homage to the character Galvatron from the original Transformers franchise. This could be a credible intention, considering the song The Touch, which was played a few episodes back in "Chuck versus Tom Sawyer", is also from Transformers fame.

    • The scene between Morgan and Lester where they put their hands on the glass of the Buy More is a reference to the similar scene of Kirk and Spock in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan.
