    Labyrinth (I'm fairly sure).

    Edit: nope, an Office (US) episode, "Cafe Disco," Season 5 Ep 25. (http://www.officequotes.net/no5-25.php) - although apparently the quote should be "we HAVE talking walls."

    Excellent episode!

    Ellie needs to grow some balls. Grow up and let the birdie fly. I pity her kids. "no you can't go play outside, some germ might hurt you" I liked her in the beginning of the show but now, Awesome is much better. And team Awesome/Morgan was a riot.

    Please kill him. Please. PLEEEAAASSSEEE!!!

    I could see Morgan doing it because it's what spies do. Go Morgan!!!!

    Thank you! It was torturing me! I had just started to believe it was from the office--though I was hearing Dwight's voice (it was actually Michael)--but google just returned jschuur threads.

    The Star Wars reference with the general was awesome. This is such a great show.

    and the "It's OK we're here to rescue you" and "Alex, I'm your father"

    Ausiello has his armchair casting open for MamaB, here are my thoughts


    Carrie Fischer-Obvious geek cred, unfortunately hard living has made her a bit more androgenous.

    Gates McFadden-More geek cred, also played the mother of a gifted child, though she may not be acting anymore

    Kate Mulgrew-OK, Voyager wasn't the best, but 2 Starfleet captains as Chuck's parents, how much more geeky, and Robert Duncan McNeil has worked with her in the past ;p

    Nancy Wilson, out of left field, but what teenage boy from the late 80's didn't tug to her? She's about the right age and she's acted a bit...

    Claudia Christian, also about the right age, less well known with B5 vs Trek, a bit more active in acting after B5 vs Mulgrew after Voyager...

    There's been a suggestion or two of Lynda Carter as well.

    Edit: whoops, didn't read the article first. :eek:

    How about a one-off (in two ways): Melissa Gilbert. Small but critical role in B5 for geek cred. And married to Bruce Boxlitner, who also played Awesome's father.

    What a great ep and it was written so they could close it there or even add that last scene to continue to next season.

    Can someone explain to me, did Chuck get Intersect Alfa (or maybe Beta) as a kid? If so why didn't he flash anytime from then to when he got 1.0 from Bryce?

    Also anyone else think the knock on the door was daddy coming back? This show does have a history of having dead characters return.

    I've always loved Morgan, but they've done some great things with his character this season. It started with his reaction to the finding out that Chuck had been a spy all this time, and he was like "Awesome!" instead of taking the typical TV angsty "I can't believe he's been hiding this from me!" route. And then the pairing with Casey was a stroke of genius by the writers, because those two are hysterical together for oh so many reasons.

    His reaction after breaking both thumbs in order to get to the fire alarm, and then have the alarm go off right before he got there, was priceless. Loved it.

    There wasn't much in there. I suspect it's why he was such a computer wiz.

    I think Dad was just experimenting at that point, and there wasn't anything in there that was flash worthy. Perhaps Dad hadn't even known what application it would be used for. But when Chuck "downloaded" all that information, and Dad saw that he was still OK, perhaps that's what gave him the idea to put relevant spy-related info into the download so that it could be recalled at a later time.

    Yeah I certainly think dad could still be alive. If The Ring could bring Shaw back from the dead with several bullet holes in him and fallen into that river, they could certainly bring back papa bartowski. Especially since they could use his intelligence as well.

    He can come back from the dead. In fact, he happened to get shot just one room over from the tissue regeneration laboratory...

    I was for sure that it was him when the knock on the door happened. I still think he is alive and will resurface at somepoint.

    He'll resurface via the computer talking to Chuck for a bit...as for him coming back...I'm sure they'd save that for when Chuck actually gets that close to finding out who his mother is. The locket will tie into this.

    This little detail is why I won't be surprised to see him next season. If Shaw can be shot 3 times, fall into a river, be flown from France to this secret lab in LA, and still survive, it should be a no-brainer that the Ring or next season's Very Bad People would use that lab to save his life. What super-secret baddie spy group could resist having Orion in their grasp?

    I loved Lesters facial expression when Jeff said that Ellie was Chuck with girl parts.

    I was totally expecting the last 6 episodes of this season to be pretty much stand-alone since they were added on after they had pretty much given us a season-finale episode in Paris. I figured they'd get Shaw, Chuck would get the governor (which would never be mentioned again) and next season would start just as it would have if these last 6 episodes hadn't happened. Chuck actually quitting the CIA and finding his dad's secret lair is a huge change though. It'll be really interesting to see how Sarah, Casey, and even General Beckman will figure into his probably new life of freelance bad-guy busting.

    I'm not entirely sure that the Buy More is really gone. They blew it up right after Jeff and Lester suggested burning it down to save it. I think there's more to it than having those two clowns on the run, although that might make for some entertaining encounters with them next season.

    I thought it sounded more like "Moo-haha" when he said it. :p

    Agreed! It was a pretty blatant bit of product placement, but not too horribly out of character for Big Mike. Considering that they played no small part in Chuck's renewal, I'm all for more Subway placements.
