* FanNickname: Arnold Vosloo's character, Vincent, is frequently referred to by fans as Agent Imhotep, alluding to his most famous role in ''Film/{{The Mummy|1999}}''. It's helped by the fact that Vincent manages to survive an ''absurd'' amount of punishment, apparently dying only to resurface again later ''several'' times.

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfOrder: Season 2 episodes "Chuck Versus the Best Friend" and "Chuck Versus the Suburbs" were broadcast out of order, due to an address by President UsefulNotes/BarackObama preempting "Chuck Versus the Best Friend." As "Suburbs" was the Valentines Day episode, the network kept it in its original timeslot on February 16, 2009 rather than move it back and maintain the story order. "Best Friend" was instead broadcast the following week, February 23. That they were originally meant to be aired in the opposite order is evident in the plots of both episodes: "Best Friend" continued plot points of "Chuck Versus Santa Claus," particularly between Morgan and Anna (who were still separated in "Best Friends," yet back together in "Suburbs") while further developing Chuck and Sarah's relationship as a lead-in to "Suburbs." Additionally, "Chuck Versus the Beefacke" built directly on the situation Chuck and Sarah were left in at the end of "Suburbs," which does ''not'' fit if "Best Friend" is watched in between. Strangely, the order has ''not'' been corrected on any subsequent home video or streaming release.

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** [[Series/TheDrewCareyShow Oswald]] is a Ring agent.
** [[Film/RockyIV Ivan Drago]] is a Volkoff operative.
*** As if just being there wasn't enough, he even makes at least two {{Shout Out}}s to ''Rocky IV'': "I must break you!" and "If you die, you die."
** [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Sarah Connor]] is Chuck and Ellie's mom and [[Series/QuantumLeap Sam Beckett]] is their dad.

** [[Series/{{Crusade}} Captain Gideon]] is Sarah's dad, while [[Series/BabylonFive Captain Sheridan]] is Devon's.
*** Which makes Chuck's ''Film/{{Tron}}'' poster all the more interesting.
** Chuck has to battle noted HITG Richard Burgi (''Series/TheSentinel, Series/DesperateHousewives, Series/TwentyFour'') to save Sarah. He's also the guy who insulted [[Series/{{Firefly}} Jayne]] and his cunning hat. ("That hat makes you look like an idiot.")

Unfortunately, the only video on Youtube that just has the intro doesn't have him in it.
