Since geeky Chuck accidentally became the mental host of the Intersect, an unprecedentedly powerful computer mind containing all information available to the US government, he's a primordial national security asset and risk. So CIA and NSA each appoint a top agent to guard Chuck, and often get involved with him in spy adventures. Meanwhile his identity must be kept secret from Chuck's sister, her perfect partner Devon, both surgeons, and Chuck's goofy colleagues in Buy More, the Burbank electronics store where he works as a cover.
He's the secret. She's the agent. (Season 1)

's Emmett Fitz-Hume, and last name taken from Dan Aykroyd
's Austin Millbarge; this is also the order they are introduced in the film. In an episode, Chuck poses as a doctor, and references a scene from the movie, where doctors go through greeting each other by saying "Doctor, Doctor". Chevy Chase had a guest role on the show. In the movie, one of the actors playing the Tadzhik Highway Patrolman has the name Costa-Gavras, and the name of the Communist country featured in season three, episode three, "Chuck Versus the Angel de la Muerte" has the name Costa Gravas. Also, while Chuck and Sarah are watching television, Spies Like Us (1985) comes on, and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) comments "not again". Another reference is from one of the episodes featuring Chevy Chase; in which is featured an underground bunker disguised as a drive-in movie theater. See more
