    • Sarah: Okay, look. The sooner we get the cipher back, the sooner you can have the Intersect removed and the sooner you can be free to live whatever life you choose with whomever you choose.
      Chuck: What are you saying?
      Sarah: I'm saying that you can have everything that you've always wanted.

    • Chuck: Well, it may not be the steamiest, but we probably have the strangest relationship in Los Angeles.
      Sarah: I doubt that. Morgan is still dating, right?
      Chuck: Good point.

    • Roan: Be yourself? (referring to Sarah) You think a woman like this could ever fall for a guy like you?
      Chuck: I don't know. Barring any national security emergency, I think I might have a shot.
      Roan: Be reasonable. This is a gorgeous, sophisticated woman, and you're...
      Sarah: ... Passionate and-and sweet and caring.
      Roan: Really. Tall, dark and caring. What a combo!

    • (Roan downs a martini in one gulp) Chuck: His liver must look like camouflage!

    • Chuck: (being asked to be on a new mission) Uh, you can count me out on this one. No more dangling me off of buildings. No more guns being pointed at my head. No more putting my life in danger. I'm going back to my peaceful, quiet, albeit degrading existence at the Buy More. So, have fun on the mission, and... really love what you've done with the place.

    Allusions (2)

    • The character name Sasha Banacheck is a nod to Linda Fiorentino's character of the same name in Gotcha!. She portrayed a CIA agent that seduced a college student (played by Anthony Edwards) in order to have him unknowingly smuggle a film canister out of East Germany. This allusion may also be self-referential, as it is revealed in "Chuck Versus the Alma Mater" that Chuck and Bryce played a version of Gotcha! (known as "Assassin") in Stanford's library.

    • Chuck: Remember, we'll always have Paris.
      This is in reference to the famous phrase from the 1942 classic movie Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
