NBC (ended 2012)




  • Season 2 Episode 6: Chuck Versus the Ex

  • When Chuck is performing the computer support at the BioScience conference, he announces that he is using 10BaseT to connect the servers. 10BaseT only runs at 10 megabits per second, and is far too slow to connect modern servers.

  • Featured Music:
    "Pumpin' For Jill" by Iggy Pop (Part of Chuck's "Jill '03 Mix")
    "On Sale Now" by Daniel May
    "Papa Loves Mambo" by Perry Como (Chuck and Jill arrive at the restaurant)
    "It Makes My Heart Break" by Your Vegas (Chuck and Jill talk about the past)
    "Pumpin' For Jill" by Iggy Pop (Chuck and Jill kiss)
    "Time And Space" by The Accidental (Jill calls Chuck)

  • When Chuck comes out of the sealed room after saving the day and is applauded by everybody, one of the guys isn't actually clapping his hands, but just moving them back and forth.

  • Although Ellie's full first name has previously been revealed to be Eleanor, Lester refers to her as Elizabeth. This may not be an error by the writers, but instead in keeping with Lester's character.

  • This is the first episode in which Chuck is shown to carry a badge. Additionally, while Chuck has also been seen working directly with law enforcement officers and tactical teams before, such as leading a team onto the roof to apprehend Colt in "Chuck Versus the First Date", this episode is the first explicit indication that he has some level of authority over local and federal law enforcement agencies.

  • Season 2 Episode 5: Chuck Versus Tom Sawyer

  • Missile Command was actually created by Dave Theurer and does not feature a kill screen. After level 256, it instead returns to level 1.

  • Chuck's Stanford diploma bears two inaccuracies: under his name it states "who has satisfactory pursued" rather than "who has satisfactorily pursued," and it lists his degree as a BS in Electrical Engineering, whereas an authentic diploma would list a BS in Engineering with the concentration "Electrical Engineering" appearing in smaller print below.

  • The Air Force officer welcomes Casey over the computer link to "Strategic Air Command"(SAC). However, SAC was disbanded in 1992 after the end of the Cold War, with its assets being distributed to other Air Force departments and commands. Casey should have been talking to US Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM).

  • Casey says that the Air Force is going to use an ICBM to shoot down the orbiting satellite. ICBMs are not designed for this task, but for attacking stationary ground targets. Specialized anti-satellite missiles are necessary, such as the Cold-War era ASM-135 or modifications to modern missiles such as the SM-3.

  • Chuck's fake passport is a rather faithful copy of a non electronic French passport. Chuck's false name was "François Espoir". The word "espoir" is French for "hope" but is not a common last name in France. However, François is a common first name. The character font used on the passport is correct, but some labels have been erased on certain fields. It is notable that the year of his date of birth has not been written down, although it should have been. On his place of birth, it says "Paris, France". On a real passport, the name of the country, "France", would not be mentioned unless he was born in another country than France. His supposed residence address is "127 La Croisette, 6401 Cannes". Cannes is indeed a town in the south coast of France, but its zip code is 06400, and the street name should have been "127 Boulevard de la Croisette". We learn too that his height is 1.68 meters, that is 5ft 6in. And his eye color is brown.

  • Missile Command has only six digits for displaying scores; the arcade machine would not have been able to display 2 million.

  • Featured Music: "All Out Of Love" by Air Supply (Jeff's montage of Anna) "On Sale Now" by Daniel May "Council Estate" by Tricky (Sarah in a Nerd Herd disguise) "Tom Sawyer" by Rush (Mr. Morimoto plays "Missile Command") "At The Checkout Counter" by Billy Martin "The Touch" by Stan Bush (The gang prepares for the game) "Tom Sawyer" by Rush (Chuck plays "Missile Command") "Sleepdriving" by Grand Archives (Chuck and Sarah share a moment) "Tom Sawyer" by Rush (Jeff plays "Missile Command") Rush's Tom Sawyer was voted the #1 song to play arcade games to by Nintendo Power Magazine in 1999 and has been featured in other shows such as Futurama for similar reasons (episode "Anthology of Interest 2").

  • Jeff's address is revealed to be:
    1629 Handley Avenue
    North Hollywood, CA 91601

  • Season 2 Episode 4: Chuck Versus the Cougars

  • A few of Sarah's aliases are revealed by CIA Director Graham: Jennifer Burton (San Diego), Katie O'Connell (Wisconsin), Rebecca Franko (Cleveland). However, the name on her birth certificate, which is her real name, is never revealed.

  • Season 2 Episode 3: Chuck Versus the Break-Up

  • When Chuck flashes the mugshots of various CIA/NSA agents, including Sarah Walker and John Casey, the mugshots mistakenly identifies National Security Agency (NSA) agents, including Casey, as part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), that is incorrect. The NSA is actually a branch of the US Department of Defense (DOD), which is why the gang's superior officer is General Beckman. Beckman is a US Air Force General.

  • The Fulcrum agent posing as a doctor has a name tag with "Dr. J. Rosenbaum" on it. Scott Rosenbaum is writer and executive producer of this episode.

  • When Chuck flashes on the Intersect data drive, pictures of the following persons are shown in split seconds:
