  • Quotes

    • Morgan: (muttering to himself) Where am I going to find 2500 dollars?...Charles! How are you? What is that scent? It's like the beach after it's rained. What is it?
      Chuck: Deodorant. What do you need?

    • Jack Burton: Cop-face, you are going to use the gift god gave you, your cop face.

    • Casey: It's not a mission, moron, she's taken a personal day.
      Chuck: I didn't realize we got a personal day.
      Casey: Well, you don't. We do.

    • Chuck: (On the phone to the police) Yeah, hi. I'd like to report a stolen '81 Delorean. Licence plate is D-E-M-O-R-G-A-N. No. This is not a prank call.

    • Chuck: I'm familiar with Hogan's Heroes and "Castle Wolfenstein", but beyond that my German is a little rusty.

    • Jack: Alright. Sarah and I will handle the deal. (To Casey) Cop-face, you're security.
      Chuck: (to Casey) We can switch names if you like. I can be Cop-face and you can be Shnook.

    • Awesome: (to Morgan) You have exactly one day to get my money back to me or I pluck you from head to toe.
      Anna: Start with the groin. He won't be using that region for a while.

    • (A car horn sounds)
      Chuck: That would probably be Morgan, he's giving me a ride to work.
      Ellie: On what, his handlebars?
      Chuck: No. Uh, uh, Morgan--Morgan bought a barely-functioning '81 Delorean that only goes 22 miles an hour. So I'd better get going. See ya!

    • Chuck: Sarah's just bluffing with Beckman, right? She'd never arrest her own father?
      Casey: Why not? The guy's a criminal. Been in and out of jail her whole life.
      Chuck: Well, he seems to care, though. I mean, at least he's attempted to have a relationship. I don't even know where my own father is.
      Casey: Oh, that's sad. You've confused me with someone that cares about your life before the Intersect.

    • Awesome: Permission to speak freely?
      Morgan: There are no secrets between us.
      Awesome: Would you agree that you have no credit, no life plan, no apartment, no car, no adult responsibilities at all?
      Morgan: On rare occasions I do my own laundry.

    • Chuck: (to Morgan about a Nerd Herd car) I need a Nerd Herd.
      Lester: No. Emmett found Jeff's underwear on the back seat and he's having them all re-upholstered as a safety precaution.

    • Chuck: (to Sarah) You wanna come over tonight for a fake date with Awesome and Ellie? I promise fake cuddling but real pizza.

When Sarah and her father are trying to get out of the situation with the Sheik, Chuck uses the same ploy to get the Sheik's attention that is used by Lawrence Jamieson (actor Michael Caine) in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. They both use the hotel staff to get themselves a message under their assumed names and when the person calls out for them they snap their fingers to get their attention.
