Chuck and Sarah may have gotten ripped off last night to the tune of $26,000, but that doesn't mean your favorite Chuck Round Table panelists are going do the same to you. See what I did there? Yeah, a bad a joke.
Anyways, Chuck critic Dan, hilarious physician Dr. Toboggan, and your fearless Round Table leader (myself) are back with this week's edition to analyze "Chuck Versus the Wedding Planner." So take a seat while we fire up the overhead project and do this:
1. Favorite Chuck quotes of the evening?
Morgan: Today is the day John Casey.
Casey: What? You move out?
Morgan: No, who's gonna do your laundry?
Dr. Toboggan: Awesome: "Hey bro you're in neighborhood watch territory now. Go ahead, try and run, I will be faster because I have superior form."
Eric H: Mine is less of a quote and more of the ridiculous set up that led to pictures of Daphne Peralta posted up all throughout Castle as she was declared the country's biggest terrorist threat in three months.
2. Awesome with baby Clara strapped to his chest in a race against, well, anyone. Who's gonna win?!
Dan F: Let's be serious...I'm taking Usain Bolt against Awesome and the baby, but if it were Awesome and Clara against Jack Burton, I really would go with Awesome and not just because has superior form.
Dr. Toboggan: Whoops, well see above....it's no contest. Even with an infant strapped to his chest I do not want to get in his way, the guy's name is Awesome and let's not forget he has perfect running form.
Eric H: Fine, Dan, there may be an Olympic gold medalist or two that could defeat Awesome with baby Clara strapped to his chest. But even with that handicap, I'd put him up against any creepy perp coming in to that neighborhood. Put down baby Clara for a second? That man might be able to take down the Flash. Or at least Sheldon dressed as the Flash.3. How would you describe Chuck flashing?
Dan F: I like to compare it to the face Shia Labeouf used to make in his Even Stevens days when he was interested in a girl. It's kind of like your simultaneously scrunching up your face while un-scrunching it..
Dr. Toboggan: It's a mild seizure mixed with his tasting some fish that has sat out too long.
Eric H: I'm pretty sure Sarah nailed it with her cross-eyed, sour-puckering mouth.
4. Who did the better fake New York Jewish accent, Daphne Peralta or Sarah?
Dan F: Oh it has to be Sarah. Yvonne has an Australian accent, and was doing a straight American accented person doing a New York Jewish accent. One of the best we've seen since Robert Downey Jr. was an American playing an Australian playing an African-American playing an Asian during that one sequence of Tropic Thunder.
Dr. Toboggan: I guess Daphne by default. Sarah just went with the most stereotypical voice she could muster up and as a Jew if I wasn't so infatuated with her I might have even been offended, but probably not.
Eric H: I don't care how many accents Sarah is hiding behind, there was nothing saving that impression from hurting my hears. Unfortunately, Daphne and her Italian alias probably also should drop the accent. How did Sarah even get conned by her!? Anyways, I'm going to cheat and go with Mike Myers in his Coffee Talk skit.
5. Jeff recently went off on Chuck in TV On My Terms. Defend our favorite nerd!
Dan F: Wait! Who is our favorite nerd? Chuck? Or is it Jeffrey? While I completely understand where he's coming from, I'm still made that he chose to single out us loyal Chuck fans as the main culprit. Give us a little slack over here. What will we do without Morgan Grimes?!?
Dr. Toboggan: I understand what he is saying but I have to believe that eating all those Subway sandwiches was for more than just delicious nutrition. I am also the first one to admit the show is not what it once was but when the alternative is horrible reality shows (not including Jersey Shore or NYC Prep - Bravo please bring that show back) and singing competitions I have to think that NBC can continue to make money off a goofy, funny, family appropriate spy show with a good message at it's core.
Eric H: Geesh, Jeff, have you never heard of character development!? Sorry, Chuck lost you, but for the rest of us, no, we're not going to go outside and smell some roses or whatever when we can petition to watch Chuck! Need I remind you how many disgustingly mediocre Subway sandwiches I've eaten thanks to Chuck? Enough to make even Jared impressed. See what I did there? Gosh, who knew you guys were such a tough crowd. Anyways, let's go creep out some Nielsen households and stalk the hell out of them!
