* CastingGag: ''All over the place''. Especially from season 2 onward you'll be hard-pressed to find a major ''or'' minor character who is ''not'' a geek culture icon. {{ActorAllusion}}s are pretty much a guarantee.



* HideYourPregnancy: Sarah Lancaster's real life pregnancy was hidden in season four. Ironically, the pregnancy was announced a day after her character, Ellie, gave birth to her first child, Clara.



* McLeaned: [[spoiler:Bryce Larkin, killed off]] at the end of season two when he [[WhiteCollar had a pilot picked up elsewhere]].



** Jill is allowed to escape by Chuck, and her fate is never resolved by the end of the series. WordOfGod is that there were plans to bring her BackForTheFinale, but [[WhatCouldHaveBeen time and budget limitations prevented it]].

* YouLookFamiliar: The actor who played Yuri the Gobbler had also played one of La Ciudad's goons.

* MySkullRunnethOver: The Intersect puts a huge long term toll on the bearer's brain unless you use a device to keep it in check, and can possibly fry your brain outright if it can't absorb the information properly. (Note that the only time this has happened in the show was with a beta Intersect [[spoiler:developed by FULCRUM]]. Becomes a plot point in season 3 when [[spoiler:Chuck is seemingly in danger of this happening to him]]. Happens again in the final season when [[spoiler:Morgan and Sarah receive the Intersect. Morgan becomes a douche who can't remember Star Wars or Indiana Jones, while Sarah loses all of her memories of the past 5 years and reverts to her old CIA personality]].)

* NotHimself: [[spoiler:Morgan with the Intersect. Chuck recognizes it when [[OutOfCharacterAlert Morgan doesn't get an]] IndianaJones reference. Even more heavily underlined for the audience in the final shot of the episode when Morgan asks who [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]] is]].

* SexyWalk: Almost all sexy women who walk into the Buy More and Sarah when she's wearing a {{Stripperific}} outfit.

to:

* SentimentalMusicCue: A subtle non-sitcom example in the light piano cue that played whenever Chuck and Sarah had a heart-to-heart moment.
* SexyWalk: Almost all sexy women who walk into the Buy More and Sarah when she's wearing a {{Stripperific}} outfit. It happened often enough for the series to even spoof it. In one season three episode, [[TheBusCameBack Anna Wu]] gets one the first time she walks into the store, complete with the Buy More Wind Machine. This is followed immediately by ''Morgan'' getting one while dressed to the nines in a full tuxedo (minus cummerbund, he was being daring), with Skip in the background having his FunnyAfro and a pad of paper in his hands disturbed by the Wind Machine because Morgan's hairstyle otherwise wouldn't be stirred by it.

* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Chuck and Sarah, are an interesting example. Everyone in Chuck's private life is ''supposed'' to be able to see it, since they are a devoted couple, as far as any of them know, but the people who know that it's supposed to be an act (Casey, Bryce, Beckman, Roan, etc.) also see it.

* MrFanservice:
** Captain Awesome.
-->'''Morgan:''' Look at you, you live in a freakish bubble of handsomeness.
** Casey
--->'''Chuck:''' And Casey, your jaw was chiseled by Michelangelo himself.
** Shaw
--->'''Chuck:''' Yeah, if you're into the, ''* ahem* '' strong, kinda [[ActorAllusion Superman-y]] type of a guy.
** Cole Barker
--->'''Chuck:''' I get what she sees in you, you know. The fearlessness in the face of danger, the imperviousness to pain, super-cool tank-tops...stop me whenever this is getting uncomfortable.
** Even Morgan, the little dude is stacked.
** Chuck himself. Started out barely edging into HollywoodNerd, and that was ''before'' he became really BadAss. And then there's [[MemeticBadAss Charles Carmichael]].
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Chuck and Sarah, of course.

Added DiffLines:

** Somewhat played down in Ellie's case since she generally doesn't fit the MsFanservice type.
** The rest of the CAT Squad fully qualify, as well

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: For the most part, Yvonne Strahovski does an very well affecting an American accent, but there are a couple of occasions early on in the show when her natural Aussie peaks through here and there. After the first handful of episodes, she's pretty much flawless.
