  • Quotes

    • Bryce: Sarah told me about your team, what you've done together.
      Chuck: And you're still the super spy, right?
      Bryce: That's nothing. I got one friend in this world. You got a home and a store full of them.

    • Morgan: You look just like this guy my best friend used to go to Stanford with.
      Bryce: Oh. Sorry, I, I went to Penn. Uh, I'll take it as a compliment.
      Morgan: Well, you shouldn't, actually. 'Cause this guy Bryce was a real douche. You know, he got my buddy Chuck kicked out of Stanford, he ruined his life. I don't know why he'd do that to the nicest guy in the world, you know?

    • Bryce: Need to ask you something.
      Chuck: Shoot. (Looks at Tommy) Not you please.
      Bryce: Ghaj yoD wep? (The shield's jacket has?)
      (Chuck looks at him confused)
      Bryce: HIja', ghobe'? (Yes, no?)
      Chuck: HIja' (Yes)
      Bryce: Sorry Chuck.
      (Shoots Chuck)

    • (Interrogation scene)
      Bryce: Prove it. TlhIngan hol Dajatlh'a'? (Do you speak Klingon?)
      Chuck: Dude, come on they're watching us right now.
      Bryce: Do it.
      Chuck: HIja'. BIpIvHa'law'. (Yes. You look terrible.)

    • Morgan: Any one of you could initiate a full Buy More evacuation by uttering one word.
      Chuck: Pineapple.
      Lester: Hmm.
      Morgan: The word that cannot be spoken.
      Lester: I really just wanna say "pineapple" a few times. Pineapple. Pineapple.
      Jeff: (over Lester) Pineapples are fun. My dad used to throw them at me.

    • Ellie: I am thankful for my family and my friends.
      Casey: Eh...I pass.
      Devon: Chuck?
      Chuck: (soberly) I'm thankful that Bryce Larkin is dead and is not currently in my bedroom making out with my new girlfriend. (He glares at Casey)
      Casey: Ahem. Excuse me.
      Morgan: Wow, buddy, that was, um, really...dark.
      Devon: And specific.

    • (Casey reveals a tray of guns in a table)
      Chuck: Are you kidding me? Some kid could find this!

    • (Bryce is using Chuck as a human shield and is moving toward the elevator with Sarah and Casey following)
      Casey: I've got a shot.
      Chuck: (panicked) No you don't.
      Casey: You'll be fine.
      Chuck: No shooting, no shooting. I'm susceptible to bullets.
      Bryce: The access code. I'll kill him, Sarah.
      Chuck: Between you and me, I think he means it.

    • (Casey is at Chuck's Thanksgiving dinner)
      Chuck: What are you doing here?
      Casey: Well, your sister invited me to dinner.
      Chuck: (Surprised) Really?
      Casey: Thanks.

    • Chuck: Why would you do that? Why did you kill Bryce?
      Casey: Orders. Your old nemesis is a very dangerous human being Chuck. You get a chance to shoot Bryce Larkin, you shoot to kill.
      Captain Awesome: Guys, no shop talk tonight. We've got a bird to eat. Hey John, can you help me stuff this monster?
      (Casey hands Chuck his drink)
      Casey: Cosmo.
      Ellie: Thank you, John. (To Chuck) He's so sweet.
      Chuck: Like honey.

    • (Bryce comes out of the shadows)
      Bryce: Hello, Chuck.
      Chuck: Sarah and Casey are right inside. One girlish scream from me and they go into combat mode.

    • (Chuck is held hostage by the man from Fulcrum)
      Bryce: You all right, Chuck?
      Chuck: Does it look like I'm all right?
      Bryce: I need to ask you something.
      Chuck: Shoot. (To the guy holding him hostage) Not you please.

    • Bryce: They want me to go after Fulcrum, on my own, off the radar.
      Casey: Sounds like Heaven.

    • Chuck: Seriously, that is not fair to not tell someone how much a bullet proof vest still hurts!

    • Chuck: Isn't it someone else's turn to be the human shield?

    • Casey: Stay down, Chuck. This is when the shooting starts.
      Chuck: Right, right now?

    • Casey: Well, should I pop some popcorn or beat the answer out of you?
      Bryce: No thanks, I'll talk.
      Casey: Darn.

    • Chuck: Hey! No guns at Thanksgiving!

    • Sarah: Bryce, I have a gun. Do I need to use it?
      Bryce: I'm unarmed and I'm sorry.

    • Chuck: Uh, Sis, Morgan is bringing someone tonight.
      Ellie: Like a real someone or an imaginary someone?

    • (Chuck is loopy from tranquilizer drug)
      Sarah: Chuck?
      Chuck: Hey? Hey? Hey!
      (Sarah moves away and is replaced in Chuck's view by Casey)
      Chuck: Ahh! Not pretty! Ugly!

    • Chuck: (interrogating) H-hey, Bryce, buddy. It's me, Chuck.
      Bryce: You're not... what have you done with the real Chuck? (Chuck walks over to the window)
      Chuck: I'd like to come out now, please!
      Casey: Natural born interrogator.

    • Chuck: I don't get it, Bryce, why'd you do it? Why'd you send me the intersect? Then why did you destroy it? And last step how the hell are you still alive?
      Bryce: It's complicated
      Chuck: Who saved you?
      Bryce: They did.
      Chuck: They saved you? Did they? Could you be any more cryptic?

    • Morgan: Sweetheart is that, um, tartar sauce?

  • Allusions

    • Morgan: Turn on your heartlight, buddy. Let it glow.
      Morgan paraphrases the Neil Diamond song Turn on your Heartlight, which he wrote to commemorate the movie E.T.

    • Chuck himself realizes that Bryce's farewell line to Sarah "We'll always have Omaha" is a nod to Casablanca. The final shot of this episode in which Sarah is deciding between phone calls from both Chuck and Bryce also evokes Ingrid Bergman's romantic dilemma in the airport climax of that movie.

    • The language spoken by Chuck and Bryce is Klingon, an alien language created for the Star Trek film and series franchise. The Klingon dialogue between Chuck and Bryce appears to be generally correct, however the pronunciation by both actors is poor (additionally, in the various incarnations of Star Trek Klingon is a harsh, barked language even when spoken by human characters).

    • The drug Bryce injects Chuck with is dehalcynate, the fictional drug from the movie The Island (2005).
