  • Quotes

    • Casey: Reviewing pictures of people you killed? I do that myself from time to time.

    • Casey: Listen, would Ellie cheat on Devon for any reason?
      Morgan: John Casey, if I had the height or the willpower, I would slap you across the face right now, okay?

    • (Stephen throws a knife at Chuck to prove he's the Intersect and Chuck catches it)
      Stephen: I knew it! You downloaded the Intersect 2.0.
      Chuck: You threw a knife at my face!
      Stephen: Why would you do that, after I worked so hard to get the first one out?
      Chuck: Dad. Knife! Face! What if you were wrong?
      Stephen: I'm never wrong.

    • Casey: Hey, you seen Grimes?
      Lester: Lost your friend, did you? Can't find him 'cause he's changed so much? But you can't help but think about the days you guys used to drink together and hold each other for hours and hours just talking about even the silliest little things. Those days are no more.

    • (Jeff singing at the Buy More)
      Jeff: Hey Girl! What you got for me? You wanna get up on here and have a baby with me, yeah? Oh, I see how it is. Well I don't need ya. Your uterus will get my baby in it anyway.

    • (Casey, Sarah and Chuck in Castle trying to get a lead on Shaw)
      Sarah: After our couples massage, he took me to Tiffany's.
      Casey: Did he buy you anything?
      Chuck: Please, everybody knows that you go to Tiffany's to browse, not buy.
      Casey: Are those new earrings, Agent Walker?

    • (Casey, Sarah and Chuck in Castle trying to get a lead on Shaw)
      Casey: So what did you and Shaw do while you were in D.C.?
      Chuck: Casey, they were in and out of meetings all day, every day. I mean, the trip was purely spy related. All business, no pleasure.
      Casey: Well Walker, I have here a receipt for a waterfront restaurant in Le Jardin- two chefs' tasting menus, a couple of nice bottles of Pinot...doesn't sound like business to me.

    • Morgan: Wait, wait, you dreamt Shaw was alive? Chuck, you saw him die, though. You checked for a pulse right?
      Chuck: Well, he fell into a river.
      Morgan: He fell into a river! Of course Shaw's alive, haven't you ever seen a John Carpenter movie?

    • Stephen Bartowski: (after the fight, about Sarah's skills) Does she have the Intersect, too?
      Chuck: No, Dad. That's all her.

    • Chuck: (voice-over) My name is Chuck Bartowski, and if you're reading this, it means I'm already dead. I don't know what will end up killing me but I've chosen to be a spy, and there are consequences to that. It may be my emotions that end up doing me in or a slip-up, trying to protect my friends or my family who never wanted me to be a part of this. Or it could be the thing I never saw coming, but I know it's coming.
