Did You Know?


The character name Sasha Banacheck is a nod to Linda Fiorentino's character of the same name in Gotcha!. She portrayed a CIA agent that seduced a college student (played by Anthony Edwards) in order to have him unknowingly smuggle a film canister out of East Germany. This allusion may also be self-referential, as it is revealed in "Chuck Versus the Alma Mater" that Chuck and Bryce played a version of Gotcha! (known as "Assassin") in Stanford's library.

Roan teaches Chuck that the proper way to drink a martini is to hold the glass only by the stem. However, both Chuck and Roan drink all remaining martinis in the episode without holding the glass by the stem. See more »


Sarah Walker: Okay, look, the sooner we get the Cipher back and the sooner you can have the Intersect removed, and the sooner you can be free to live whatever life you choose *with* whomever you choose.
Chuck Bartowski: What are you saying?
Sarah Walker: I'm saying you can have everything that you've always wanted.
Chuck Bartowski: Let me see the file.

whats his face (John Larroquette) bad with names here...
24 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Where to start...Roan Montgomery (names funny...but you gotta love the "smoothness" of it) and having JL play him, hey it fit. Again love the home "real" life stuff, fits nicely (well to me anyway). And the store with "power hungry" (at least for now) Lester, just fun/funny, and yet Chuck, is still "the one". Love inside joke,with the set up under the old wienerlicious, now a yogurt shop, "looks expensive, does this mean you'll be sticking around awhile" that chuck said, and Beckman saying "that will depend on you". Then there's Chucks talk of leaving going back to Buy More with Beckmans asking "something wrong with the asset?" Sarah's oh no everything's fine, fun.

Roan, passed out, Chuck no don't want to see another dead body, "snore"...also just how much does this guy drink and wow and function (OK ya know there are so called functioning alcoholics, but...oh an not something really, to be proud of right ?), to still show up, uh put together but Beckmans "fussing" and even the others staring at, again funny.

Morgans "love advise" regarding Ellie to Devon, still laughing, priceless, as if Devon really wouldn't know her by now..."Casey would be picked as an agent on sight" according to Roan (hmmm, ya, agree, LOL)and Chuck is the one to be "trained" as he well is not "suave" enough to seduce the "mission", actually really funny is Casey failed the class 2 times, taught by Roan. Or at least that tickled my funny bone, as Casey is suppose to be so great at everything...

"Morgan advise", Devon putting it to use, Ellie is beyond stunned, "well he has known you longer", so call him to "romantic date", Devon does redeem himself, eventually.

Seduction steps, uh well OK, but do love the way Chuck "does the last one", an the way it ended up, Chuck actually seems to becoming a real spy in this epi, (ya has had some kinda stuff before but...)this "feels" like 1st time. Oh, the way the "mission", Sasha Banacheck, knows Roans involved, they've met, and then how Chuck is trying to get Sarah and Casey back, but isn't able to contact Beckman as Roan is no help, well for now.

Power hungry Lester, losing his uh "cool", "firing" all, but having to get them back LOL.

Poor Chuck, his plan to get his friends (protectors) back, no good, well sorta as Roan comes in, and Chucks "final" of his first real "spy" task, he succeeds. Chuck, he "uses" the gov to help Devon surprise Ellie (wow) and last romantic advise to Chuck re Sarah (well coulda worked) but his old "friend or enemy" depending on day, (was deff friend we find out but), again poor Chuck...
