  • Quotes

    • Sarah: Are you awake? Can you hear me, Chuck? (She sighs) I love you, Chuck. Nothing's ever gonna change that. And if you ask me for real, then the answer would be yes.

    • Chuck: (Sarah is calling Casey) He did just get shot in the leg and is resting up so he probably won't be available.
      Casey: Casey. What do you need?
      Sarah: A little bored, Casey?
      Casey: Dear God, please, give me something to do!

    • Chuck: (Talking about him and Sarah) We can communicate without the help of a book, ok? We are not that bad.
      Morgan: You're great. You are right. I'm sorry, yeah. You don't know wether or not you proposed or if you did if you are happy about it, or if she said yes or no to what it may or may not have been a proposal, or if either of you ever want to actually ask her for real. Yeah. Yeah, you don't need no book. You are fine.

    • Ellie: How do you feel about taking a tour of some of the darker corners of the palacio?
      Devon: Babe, is nine-foot marble me making you a little caliente?
      Ellie: Maybe.
      Devon (laughs): Well. Way to go, marble me.

    • Chuck: (to Sarah) We are crap communicators.
      Sarah: What?
      Chuck: Why are we so afraid to talk about the whole ring thing, you know? I mean we're in love, you wear your teeth-bleaching system in front of me... We should be able to talk, no?

    • Chuck: Well, in the meantime, let's keep going with the questions, heh. What are five words you'd use to describe your partner?
      Sarah: Brunette... Tall...
      Chuck: Mmmmkay, yeah, good, close. But what about like charming, terminally handsome, incredibly intelligent...

    • Chuck: So, where were we on the conversations?
      Sarah: Personal time.
      Chuck: Oh yes, yes. Morgan is going to need at least five hours of my time every week for Halo purposes.
      Sarah: And I need thirty minutes of complete silence before sleep.
      Chuck: Which is going to be a challenge with my cuddling needs.

    • Sarah: Casey, you're supposed to be in bed recovering.
      Casey: Needed some fresh air.
      Chuck: In an underground bunker...

    • Morgan: (to Chuck about him and Sarah) Well, I'll tell you what. Before there are any proposals, I'll tell you what I know you both are, without a doubt, crap communicators.
