Episode Quotes
Lizzie: You're no hot dog maker!
Sarah: Bring it on, pita girl.

Captain Awesome: Way to go, Chuck. I always knew you could handle my family jewels.

Cultural References
General Beckman: The bug Chuck found is a GLG-20.

GLG-20 is a reference to the film, Spies Like Us. The film starred Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd where they played a pencil pusher and code breaker respectfully. They took a foreign service exam, poorly. But because they were so bad, they were chosen as decoys and given the rank of GLG-20.
