  • Quotes

    • Sarah: Chuck! Are you about to disarm a nuclear bomb using fruit juice? (Chucks nods) Ok. Do it!

    • Ellie: I shouldn't have pretended to be something that I'm not. I guess I just thought that there might be something on my dad's computer that would... I don't know, change the fact that I'm just a stay-at-home mom.
      Devon: Whoa, whoa, stop right there. You're Eleanor Bartowski Woodcomb, PhD, M.D., the brainiest, sexiest, kick-assiest woman I have ever known. You're not just anything.
      Ellie: Really?
      Devon: You're Mrs. Awesome.

    • Casey: You and Bartowski... you're still good agents.
      Sarah: Yeah, well, we used to be the best.

    • Chuck: Ooh. What are these?
      Sarah: These have a camera inside of them that'll scan for any bioresidue.
      Chuck: Ugh! Sounds like a CBS show.

    • Sarah: Chuck, if The Turk's dog is behind that door, so is The Turk.
      Chuck: All we got to do is get through four inches of solid steel.
      Sarah: Or we chop off Casey's hand.
      Chuck: Let's keep that as our backup plan, shall we?
      Sarah: Sure.

    • Sarah: Look at those two. First, they take over the Buy More, then they steal our partner, and now they're taking over our spy base.
      Chuck: I just can't believe Casey replaced us.
      Sarah: I can't believe the CIA replaced us.
      Chuck: Come again?
      Sarah: Well, who do you think is taking all of our missions?
      Chuck: Honey, please, look, I have something irreplaceable in this little head of mine, okay? So let Casey have his new team. You've still got the Intersect, baby.

    • Chuck: Oh, oh, are we really doing this I mean, spying on our own partner? Isn't that a little icky?
      Sarah: Well, think about it. If Casey is going out on missions without us, then he is doing so without the Intersect.
      Chuck: You're right. What if he gets in a jam? What if he needs our help?
      Sarah: I mean, we're not spying on Casey. We're watching his back.
      Chuck: Duh.

  • Allusions

    • Snow Crash

      Dragan Pichushkin wired as trigger to the nuclear device is a reference to Neal Stephenson novel Snow Crash. In the novel the character Raven rides around on a motorbike on which the sidecar has been replaced with a thermonuclear weapon which is linked to a chip in his head. When he dies, the weapon will be triggered.

    • Chuck: Ugh! Sounds like a CBS show.
      Chuck is most likely referencing CSI and its spin-offs, well-known for high-tech forensics gadgets such as UV detectors for bodily fluids.
