Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Anna Wu (credit only)


Chuck is reunited with his long absent father Steve Bartowski, who is none other then Orion, and accepts reluctantly to return for Ellie's wedding but gets a cold welcome from her, unlike gentleman Devon. It turns out software tycoon Ted Roark, who got rich by stealing Steve's brilliant inventions and is about to launch a free operating system, suspect to spread a Fulcrum virus worldwide. Both Bartowskis are to infiltrate Roark Instruents HQ, Chuck as new employee, to prevent the launch for the government and, as their private project, try to remove the Intersect from Chuck's brain. Only Casey ans Sara's protection saves them from worse then double failure. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Right before the beginning of the "NextExpo09", when Ted Roark (Chevy Chase) is greeting the Japanese collaborators, he greets the first in Japanese by saying "Arigato". He then greets the second Japanese collaborator in mock-Japanese, by saying "In-a-gadda-da-vida", the title of an Iron Butterfly's song. See more »


When Stephen slides the Roark notebook to Chuck, the label on the book's spine is upside down. When Chuck picks the book up, the spine's the right way up. See more »


Chuck Bartowski: [to Sarah as Steve's gathering his belonging for a trip] Maybe he's not as crazy as I remembered.
Steve Bartowski: [Steve enters] Okay, let's go get your sister married. Huh?
[Steve lifts the blinds a little to look out the window]
Steve Bartowski: Maybe we should wait til dark. They're - they're tracking my every move. Rat bastards!

ya gotta love the "klutziness"
8 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Chuck is quite klutzy esp through the first couple seasons, so to have his dad also on the klutzy side, well just works an also funny.

Having Scott Bakula as their father was a great fit, (just would have been interesting if his character didn't have to die). His "Oh Boy" of course from another good show he played the main character on, as his on screen daughter leaves the room.

But the fun part was watching SB "clumsy" klutzy way of doing things to make sure Chuck sees and/or flashes on things he puts out and/or moves around while the rest an even Chuck think he has "lost it" or is still crazy.
