Awesome and Ellie worry that Chuck is slipping away from a career again and urge him to complete his Priceton exams. Chuck is as startled as by his flash concerning nuclear terrorist Farrokh Bulsara when he asks for a gaming champion looking exactly like deadbeat Jeff. The team works out Jeff actually holds the world record for a game devised by Morimoto, who hid in it the secret to control a satellite capable of starting World war III. The only way to stop that is reaching the end screen. Written by

In an early scene, you see Jeff flanked by 2 babes being interviewed by a TV reporter. This almost exactly matches a dream sequence in Fast Times at Ridgemont High
(1982) when character named Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn
) is doing the same thing. In the closing scene, you hear Jeff use the phrase, "Hey, bud...let's party" which is the same line Spicoli uses in Fast Times. See more
Missile Command was released in July 1980 and "Tom Sawyer" by Rush
wasn't recorded until October-November 1980, so it would be impossible for the game to follow the same pattern as the song as was intended, "the mathematical pattern underlying the game is the same." See more
Who do you trust to bring down a rogue satellite more: some burned out loser playing a video game, or an Air Force ICBM?
I trust Chuck!
