* In "Chuck Versus the Mask", Hannah (Kristin Kreuk) mentions how handsome she thinks Shaw (Brandon Routh) looks. In that same scene, Chuck retorts with "Sure, if you're into the strong, Superman-y type of guy" - A twofer, as [[SupermanReturns Routh previously played Superman]], and [[Series/{{Smallville}} Kreuk previously played Clark Kent's first love]].

* The second season has two shout-outs to GrossePointeBlank- Chuck makes a reference to Sarah fighting rebellion in Paraguay with a fork which sounds very similar to Martin's claim to have killed a president of Paraguay with this eating utensil. The next episode has Sarah being forced to go to her high school reunion as part of an assignment, which fits the plot of that film.

* On more than one occasion, the team has deployed a GLG-20 listening device, a shout out to ''SpiesLikeUs''. Another such shout-out was when Chuck, pretending to be a doctor, had an extended "Doctor"-"Doctor" greeting with a villain doctor. Emmett Millbarge is a cross between the names of the two spies in the movie.
** Lets face it, ''SpiesLikeUs'' is a frequent target of Chuck shoutouts.

* Several shout-outs to ''{{Casablanca}}'': "We'll always have Omaha." It's Ellie's favorite movie, as well.
** "Chuck Versus the Undercover Lover" contains a bunch for ''{{Casablanca}}''. Cynical lone wolf Casey reopens an old wound when he unexpectedly encounters his old flame ''Ilsa'' and finds that she's about to marry ''Victor'', the movie plays in the background at the BuyMore when Ilsa comes to meet Casey, and at the end, after Ilsa leaves on a plane, Chuck says, "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." (see WholePlotReference below).

* ''YTheLastMan'' is featured throughout the show multiple times. Chuck has a Y poster in his bedroom, Devon is shown reading the first issue while waiting for Chuck to wake up, Chuck is reading it at the bar to lure Manoosh. He refers to it as, "The greatest literary contribution of our time." --clearly one of the writers is a fan.

** "Come with me if you want to live," however, comes from ''[[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Terminator 2: Judgment Day]]''. In-show, it's uttered by Linda Hamilton, who [[ActorAllusion played Sarah Connor]] in that movie.

Added DiffLines:

** The villain of "Sandworm" compares the bomb-defusing climax to ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''. The bomb is stopped with 7 seconds left, just like in ''Goldfinger''. Chuck and the villain also watch ''Film/AViewToAKill'' and debate whether Zorin is misunderstood.
