Chuck's memory flashes when seeing nerdy engineer Mark Ratner in Buy More, the partner of Sara's high-school nemesis Heather Chandler. He's suspected of selling secret military technology. So Chuck accompanies Sara, under her real name Jennifer 'Jenny', to their high school-reunion. They and babysitter Casey look for possible buyers, but soon discover Mark is being blackmailed, only it's unclear who the fiends among the (fake?) alumni are. Written by

Since this episode contains flashbacks to Sarah's high school years, it is full of references to classic high school movies: Sarah's former nemesis (played by Nicole Richie) is named Heather Chandler, the same name as the main "mean girl" from Heathers
(1988); Chandler's "husband" (played by 90s icon Ben Savage) is named Mark Ratner, an homage to the character of the same name from Fast Times at Ridgemont High
(1982); the premise of a high school reunion filled with secret agents and hitmen is a tribute to Grosse Pointe Blank
(1997); the premise of a high school outcast winning a "queen" contest and being crowned while covered in blood is a tribute to Carrie
(1976); the kegger at the BuyMore while the manager is away refers to numerous high school movies in which teens have wild parties while their parents are away, including (but not limited to) Risky Business
(1983), Sixteen Candles
(1984), Weird Science
(1985), and Can't Hardly Wait
(1998). See more
In the last scene where Chuck and Sarah share a cheeseburger, Sarah sits on the couch supporting an elbow on her bare knee. In the next cut, when Chuck asks for the knife she raises a trouser-leg to get one from her calf holster baring her knee again. See more
