  • Quotes

    • Chuck: My name is Charles Car...Chuck Bartowski. I'm here to see Vivian Volkoff.
      Secretary: And what is this in regard to?
      Chuck: She wants to kill me.

    • Casey: Your mom and I are the magnet. We're gonna stay here and distract Decker. You two get out in the confusion. It's the only way you'll make it to Moscow.
      Chuck: But Casey, they took the Intersect out of me.
      Casey: Shut up. You're Chuck Bartowski, the second best spy I've ever worked with. Now you're gonna go save the best one.

    • Sarah: Chuck, you're a gift. You're a gift I never dreamed I could want or need, and every day, I will show you that you're a gift that I deserve. You make me the best person I could ever hope to be, and I want to spend and learn and love the rest of my life with you.

    • Morgan: Freelance spies. Yes. Men, and women, of action and adventure. Under the radar, above the law. Oh, man, this is gonna be so much fun. Just, uh... (notices a pair of sunglasses in a box) Huh. Oh, nice. Slick new gig. Slick new shades. (chuckles) What could go wrong? (Morgan put on the sunglasses; the Intersect downloads and he falls over)
      Chuck: Morgan. Morgan. Morgan? Morgan, did you just...?
      Morgan: Guys...I know kung fu.

    • (Chuck parachutes in with a troop of Russians)
      Casey: Russians. So many Russians.

    • Morgan (to Chuck and Sarah): By the power vested in me by the Intergalactic Federation of Planets, I now pronounce you husband and wife!

    • Decker: Agent Bartowski, Colonel Casey.
      Chuck: Listen, pal. I don't know who you think you are and frankly I don't care. I need Volkoff to save Sarah Walker's life. Now, where is he?
      Decker: Name's Decker, Clyde Decker, and I'm informing you of a wash order on the Agent X program and Operation Bartowski.
      Chuck: What does that mean?
      Decker: It means your CIA resources are revoked.
      Chuck: But Sarah is dying.
      Decker: I don't care! Now, stand down or get buried.
      Chuck: No.
      Decker: No?
      Chuck: Let me explain. (hits monitor showing Decker with a chair) That guy may think he's a hardass, but I'm the Intersect.

  • Allusions

    • Morgan: Guys... I know kung fu.

      This is a reference to a famous line spoken by Neo (Keanu Reeves) in The Matrix after having kung fu fighting skills uploaded to his brain.

    • When, in the limo, Morgan says "As you wish," his voice sliding, an allusion is being made to the book and movie "The Princess Bride." This is the phrase that made Buttercup recognize Wesley, her true love, even when he was disguised as the Dread Pirate Roberts and she has pushed him down a hill (the reason for the sliding voice).
