Instant Reaction: Chuck vs the Suitcase

Tweet 1: Immediately thinking of the JT song "Sexy Ladies." #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Firstly, Justin Timberlake is ridiculously good. Secondly, I don't know how you see Karolina Karkova and not think of that song. "Just lettin' you know/ that I got sexy ladies (Oh!)" Someone asked last week who would be on my "I'm not gay, but if they insisted" list. Justin Timberlake is totally one of those people. Karolina Karkova, on the other hand, is on the "Please please please please dear God insist" list. Subtle, yet distinct differences.

More after the break!

Tweet 2: Overprotective Devon is awesome. #UnironicUseOfAwesome#ChuckItLive

Addendum: It's always important to note if you are using the word "awesome" ironically or unironically when dealing with the show Chuck. Please label your awesomes appropriately.

Tweet 3: Morgan knows Tristan & Isolde? #WTF #ChuckItLive

Addendum: There's no way that movie made enough at the box office to merit Morgan's recognition. (And yes I know it's classic literature, too, but that's even more unlikely!)

Tweet 4: Chuck do you remember how to date? #DumbMove #ChuckItLive

Addendum: To be fair, I kind of react like that whenever I see Victoria's Secret models in their swim attire, too. Even with my girlfriend around. Thankfully my girlfriend tends to react more like Chuck than I do.

Tweet 5: Casey: King of Undermining. #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Also king of projection, king of the one-liner, king of the lanes at the local bowling alley, and king of heavy weaponry.

Tweet 6: Of course Chuck would only know Versace from Bravo.#ChuckItLive

Addendum: Not that I'm any better. I only know Versace from rap songs.

Tweet 7: Um. Flash? #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Aren't you the Intersect? You're telling me they don't have general homemade bomb diffusing tips in that thing? That seems like an egregious oversight.

Tweet 8: Didn't someone just write this fic? #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Shout out to that rather amusing Morgan-takes-over-the-BuyMore fic, "A Reasonable Fascimile" by CaffieneKitty.

Tweet 9: No seriously someone wrote that fic. #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Written before vs. the Suitcase, it would require nary a word changed to be turned from a spec fic into an episode tag. That's impressive.

Tweet 10: HULKSMASH. #ChuckItLive

Addendum: C'mon, we don't even get to see Lou Ferrigno in green? Not fair.

Tweet 11: Creepy HULKSMASH. #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Someone needs to get on writing the ridiculous star-crossed lovers tale of those two Volkov agents pronto.

Tweet 12: Sarah gets some frakking quips this episode.#StillAPadawanThough #ChuckItLive

Addendum: "Put some clothes on"? Definitely channeling the king of the one-liner there.

Tweet 13: JEFFSTER POV. #Win #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Superfluous and inane as they often are, I just love myself some good hiding-out-in-a-van Jeffster antics. Also, "Jeffster POV" is the worst idea for an adult film ever.

Tweet 14: I am pretty sure they are letting Vik and Scott ad-lib and it's great.#ChuckItLive

Addendum: Letting comedians ad-lib can be a risky endeavor, especially in one-take affairs like those POV camera sessions were, but I think Vik and Scott did a pretty great job with their characters.

Tweet 15: Casey, c'mon. Don't you remember vs. The Beard? #ChuckItLive

Addendum: I am referring of course to Casey shooting Jeff with twenty tranq darts before he could be taken down. Clearly Casey doesn't remember Jeff traipsing into the BuyMore employee office and needing to take a huff of chloroform just to "get right."

Tweet 16: What a great, great question, Devon. #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Seriously, why would good looking people work at a BuyMore? EVER. Wait, I work at the real life equivalent of a BuyMore. I must therefor be unattractive. Damn.

Tweet 17: Baby Vegan food? Rock and roll. #ChuckItLive

Addendum: That baby is going to poop green forever.

Tweet 18: Chuck and Sarah: Together they become Sherlock Holmes?#ChuckItLive

Addendum: Seriously, did you see how fast they put that shit together right after their whole "we have to deal with our issues" spiel? They should just talk all of their issues out right now and solve poverty, hunger, and peace in the Middle East while they're at it.

Tweet 19: Catwalk Catfight. Never let it be said that sophmoric wordplay is lost on the #ChuckItLive writers.

Addendum: This was before the actual catfight started, but the point still stands.

Tweet 20: Rejected HULKSMASH! #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Words I never thought I'd hear in my own head: "Awwww! Poor Lou Ferrigno!"

Tweet 21: Really? Knives? Do you not know who you're dealing with?#ChuckItLive

Addendum: That's like challenging Chuck at Duck Hunt. Or Casey to a battle of snappy quips.

Tweet 22: Sarah Walker ALWAYS gets standing ovations when she has a bloody nose. #VsTheCougars #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Which, you know, is totally okay. I sometimes think she should get standing ovations just from people who pass her by on the street but maybe that's just me.

Tweet 23: Sarah Walker needs to be on more magazine covers. #TrueFacts #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Ditto to Yvonne Strahovski.

Tweet 24: I needed Jeff with his shirt off in THEWORSTWAY.#AllMeaningsOfThatPhrase #ChuckItLive

Addendum: All meanings of that phrase including: I wanted it incredibly bad; it was one of the worst things I've seen all day; oh my God that's some fluffy chest hair; Vik Sahay bringing back the Lester Fight Club glasses was ace.

Tweet 25: "Is there room in that womb for two?" #LineOfTheNight#ChuckItLive

Addendum: Oh God I remember what I love these guys for now.

Tweet 26: Awww, daddy Casey. #ChuckItLive

Addendum: More like this, plz.

Tweet 27: #SarahConnorBitches #ChuckItLive #OkayItsOnlyPicturesButStill

Addendum: I don't know if anyone else busted out that hashtag but if so, MOREPOWERTOYOU. I am not going to have it go quietly into that good night. Also, how sad was Ellie going through her family photos while Devon was sleeping? The answer to that question is "Really sad." Poor preggers Ellie.

Tweet 28: Okay she kept the old cover picture? #SOCUTE #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Yes, I squee'd. WHAT OF IT.

Tweet 29: Hahahaha. Sarah looked so freaked. #ChuckItLive

Addendum: Poor Chuck, wanting some commitment and dating someone whose longest commitment is probably to her gun, which she routinely breaks down into its component parts. That is your fate, Chuck. To be routinely broken down into your component parts. It'll be worth it when she rubs you with a soft, dry cloth and lovingly reassembles you, though.

Final note: As always, hit me up in the comments with some of your own Chuck vs. the Suitcase thoughts.


  1. Sparky28.9.10

    Didn't Ellie and Devon get married after 8-9 years of relationship?-i may be wrong- Sarah needs more time. Say 2-3 years?

    Moving in and wanting 2.4 or 1.8 kids are two different things. No wonder Sarah freaks out.

    We should have more blondes in the show. Sarah snark and jealousy is fun! "You still love me?!"

    And Casey! Glad to see him and his jokes about Sarah's love :P

  2. Alaster28.9.10

    I'd like to point out Chuck did say MAYBE. It's doubtful he'd push her. It did take her 8+ months to unpack(though the next episode appears to be very interesting)
    Casey being bench for stabbing "one guy with a stiletto", Casey dressing Chuck with weapons on his persons while undermining Chuck ans Sarah's relationship, Casey being Casey. It's good to see the core of his character.
    Chuck lying to Awesome and Ellie really seems to get to him. I'm hoping the guilt brings about the preview of him telling Ellie about the search for their mother soon.
    Insecure Sarah is always fun to watch. Yvonne Strahovski does a really good job on facial expression throughout the series.
    The Casey/Alex/Morgan is really going slowly. Nice job to Morgan for quickly deflecting Casey's comment (unintentionally or not) on him speaking with Alex.
    I'm going to love seeing how the Buymore crew reacts to their immaculate co-workers.

  3. Anonymous28.9.10

    I didn't like Chuck acting that interested in the picture of another woman right in front of Sarah...that seems OOC for him, especially at this point. He's not supposed to be a normal, run-of-the-mill guy in that department. He's supposed to be caring and sensitive. I know that characters are supposed to change...but don't we always want (hope) the main characters to change in positive directions? Maybe it's just me. -jwr

  4. Sparky28.9.10

    I liked Morgan and Ellie's new status quo. They are able to have friendly banter. Who would have thought this was possible 2 years ago?

    And Sarah seemed to e looking for guidance when talking about suitcase with Chuck.

    IMO,chuck is caring and sensitive but Sarah can always chose to crack the whip :)

  5. Tamara Burks28.9.10

    Sarah's a classic flight risk. I don't blame Chuck for being worried especially given the number of people who've left him.

    Devon does seem to do everything to the max. I hope he stays calmed down or MoodSwing Ellie might haul out her frying pan and clock him.

    I knew that Jeffster was coming back but the whole cizitenry of Buymoria? Bonus!

    It should be interesting to see how they interact.

    Another thing I thought of since Awesome was comparing them to himsel. They'd all be made in a minute in any spy situation like Awesome was (and he's not even a spy) . Guys like Jeff and Lester however would never be made even with thier van full of spy equipment (they weren't even noticed by the Ring members in American hero) .

    The slapping with Lou Ferrigno was funny but you felt sorry for his poor lovesick character.

    I'm thinking the pictures of Mama and Papa B were copies from thier personal picture albums.

  6. Nobody is talking about the most important part of the episode... Skip Johnson is back!!!!!

  7. Alaster28.9.10

    I think Chuck's reaction of the picture was for the quality of it and not because of the person in the photo. That picture truly was a good one. Magazine worthy even.

    Something that bothered me about this episode was that neither Devon nor Ellie addressed the fact that even though Sarah is Chuck's girlfriend that she's still a spy.

  8. Anonymous28.9.10

    Alaster...thanks for the suggestion about the picture...I think you may be right, and it seems to make more sense to me now. - jwr

  9. Sparky28.9.10

    I'm hoping for Sarah/Ellie talk. What does Ellie think about her?

  10. So I am pretty sure none of this has to do with how funny/awesome/poignant/true/brilliant my tweets are. Please adjust conversation accordingly.

  11. Anonymous28.9.10

    "Karolina Karkova, on the other hand, is on the "Please please please please dear God insist" list. Subtle, yet distinct differences."

    That made me giggle.

  12. Anonymous29.9.10

    well the intersect only works when Chuck's in control of him emotions, and he was kinda.. freaked with the bomb in his hand and Morgan's words in his head (i'd be freaked too).
