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

  • Season 2 Episode 6: Chuck Versus the Ex

  • After hearing that Chuck kissed Casey thinking erroneously that the antidote would be transfer via his saliva, Jill said: "No wonder you failed bio-chemistry." Bio-chem is not a required core course for a Computer Science or Computer Engineering degree at Stanford, which was Chuck's major before he was kicked out.

  • 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 7: Chuck Versus the Fat Lady

  • When Jill asks Chuck when they should meet at Buy More he gives her a "geek code" so Casey won't be able to follow them. Chuck tells Jill to take the latent heat of aquatic fusion (in calories/gram) and then to subtract the atomic number of the element thulium. The latent heat of aquatic fusion (the heat required to turn ice to water) is approximately 80 calories/gram. The atomic number of thulium is 81. 80 - 81 = 1. Chuck and Jill went on their date while the sun was up so Chuck probably intended for Jill to meet him at 1 o'clock in the afternoon, right after lunch!

  • When Chuck looks at Morgan's locker at the Buy More, there is a sticker on it from the San Diego Comic Con. Ironically, if Morgan had gone to it he may have seen the cast of Chuck there talking about their second season.

  • While Chuck is talking to Morgan at the Buy More, the Looney Tunes short "What's Opera, Doc?" is playing on all of the TV screens in the background. It stars Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd in a parody of opera (especially the works of Wagner) and is one of the most known shorts. This is especially fitting as part of the episode is related to opera.

  • Featured Music:
    "Libiamo Ne' Lieti Calici (La Traviata)" by Giuseppe Verdi (The team enters the opera)
    "Buildings & Mountains" by The Republic Tigers (Chuck and Jill go on a road trip)
    "Keep Yourself Warm" by Frightened Rabbit (Closing scenes)

  • The note that Casey sang to open the music box and expose the hidden opera glasses was not a high C; he actually sang an E.

  • Season 2 Episode 8: Chuck Versus the Gravitron

  • At the carnival, when the Gravitron starts up, Chuck and Leader are pinned to the wall but Leader's gun falls out of his hand and tumbles out of sight. His gun should have been pinned to the wall too.

  • Featured Music:
    "Hot Mess" by Sam Sparro (Chuck and Jill make out in bed)
    "Knock Knock" by The Accidental (Chuck and Jill go out)
    "Can You Tell" by Ra Ra Riot (Thanksgiving dinner, closing scenes)

  • When Big Mike hits Leader you can clearly see his gun come flying out of his hands, but when they cut and show you the scene from the back as he lands in the pile of boxes, his gun is back in his hand.

  • Season 2 Episode 9: Chuck Versus the Sensei

  • On the DVD, the word "sensei" in this episode title is mispelled "sensai".

  • Featured Music:
    "New Song" by Datarock (Pursuit of the intruder)
    "Shake Your Blood" by Probot (Casey fights Bennett)
    "Don't Worry" by Love As Laughter (Chuck and Ellie talk)

  • At the beginning of the episode, when Ellie wakes Chuck up, she says the Awesomes took a redeye from Connecticut to surprise them. Airlines only operate redeyes, or overnight flights, flying west to east (i.e. from California to Connecticut) not the other way around. This is because of the time difference, gaining hours as you move into a western timezone. A flight from Boston to L.A. will take about six hours, but will arrive three hours after it left. In order for the Awesomes' flight to have arrived early (say 6AM) in the morning, it would have had to take off even earlier on the East Coast (say 3AM).

  • When Morgan goes into the Buy More break room to talk to his buddies about the Employee Of The Month program, Jeff Barnes is playing a classic Mattel Electronics Pocket Electronic Football game. This hand held game which used a 9 volt battery was originally released in 1977 and re-released in 2000.
