    • Morgan: She's having an affair. She's cheating on you bro. Awesome: What? That's impossible. Morgan: Casey intercepted an illicit call and he played it for me. Awesome: (Laughing) Ellie would never... Morgan: Devon. Awesome: (Serious) Wow. Morgan: I'm sorry. Awesome: You just called me Devon. Morgan: Yeah, well this is no time for frivolity.

    • Stephen: Son, your brain is working fine so far, right? Who wouldn't be paranoid in your shoes? Your cover's blown, your secret base discovered, your dead partner and girlfriend's ex-lover was a double agent. Chuck: Way to talk me down, Dad.

    • Jeff: It's like my dream come true. Ellie is exactly like Chuck, but with lady parts.

    • Ellie: Chuck, our Chuck, punched a CIA agent in the face today and they are holding him right now! Awesome: You mean you haven't been cheating on me? Ellie: What? Devon, what are you talking about? No. Listen to me. I think he's going to need a lawyer. Awesome: No, no. Chuck has been with the CIA for years! I am so glad you finally know. What a relief it is to talk. (Ellie stares at him incredulously) You don't know. Oh, no. I just told you.

    • Awesome: The whole generalissimo thing- I was undercover on a mission. That's it, that's all I know, babe. Oh, and you can blame the CIA for my bachelor party. Stripper- she was an agent. Told you I didn't cheat. Faithful. Ellie: I can't believe that my brother and Sarah are spies. How is my dad involved in all of this? Awesome: I, uh, have pockets of missing knowledge. I didn't want to know because I didn't want to have to lie to you, babe. Ellie: Devon, an actual, legitimate answer exists as to why my father has been missing my entire life and you didn't think to ask that question? Awesome: Correct. Ellie: You need to find me somebody who knows a lot more than you do. Right now. (Scene cuts to Morgan)

    Allusions (2)

    • General Beckman: Bartowski escaped this facility. He is a wanted man. I need you to find him. As much as it pains me to admit, you are our only are our only hope.
      This scene very closely resembles the iconic plea for help that Princess Leia makes to Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). This reference is more in regards to how it is broadcast than the actual line as the delivery of the message is full of interference and static. A more direct allusion was made in "Chuck Versus the Sizzling Shrimp" where Morgan says to Chuck, "Help me, Chuck Bartowski. You're my only hope!".

    • Scott Bakula makes the same illegal U-turn while driving a jeep in this episode and the 1991 film Necessary Roughness. In both cases, he is convinced not to run away and to face his problems head on.
