  • Season 1 Episode 5: Chuck Versus the Sizzling...

  • At the beginning of the episode, when Lee Cho is leaving the Chinese Consulate, he is on the phone with his sister, Mei-Ling Cho. They speak in Chinese and the translation shown on the screen has many errors.
    • Lee Cho said right before he was taken: "Na wo men jiu zhai Beijing jian le", which was translated to: "I'll see you at dinner tonight. See you then...". But the translation was supposed to say: "So we will see each other at Beijing then". And he actually said it twice.

    Mei-Ling Cho lines had even more errors. She said only 3 sentences in Chinese, but there were 4 English sentences shown on the screen.
    • Mei-Ling Cho said in Chinese: "Li, ni Xiao di, zhe mo yang", which was translated to: "Lee, little brother, are you there?"). But the translation was supposed to say: "Li, you little brother, how are you/how is it/what is it like/are you okay?"
    • "Dao na shi" is translated to: "Are you okay?", but in fact she said: "arrive where things", which is a nonsense.
