1. "Chuck Versus The Intersect"
The pilot episode of Chuck never gets old. Bask in the early days when Sarah and Casey were enemies, Chuck had no idea what he wanted out of life, and the Buy More was still just a big box entertainment store instead of a spy hub.
2. "Chuck Versus The Imported Hard Salami"
This episode has everything you could possibly want. The first appearance of Rachel Bilson as Lou is priceless, but the part that makes this hour a classic is the intense bomb-diffusing scene that leads to Chuck and Sarah's first kiss.
3. "Chuck Versus Tom Sawyer"
Few shows have ever understood early '00s geek culture quite like Chuck, and "Chuck Versus Tom Sawyer" illustrates that perfectly. The episode mixes classic video games with classic rock, while also offering an origin story for one of the show's most unusual characters, Jeff. The end result is a funny, exciting hour that builds to a moment where winning a video game means saving the world.
4. "Chuck Versus the Suburbs"
Chuck and Sarah go undercover as a married couple in a way too normal not to be evil suburban neighborhood. This hour doesn't make a huge impact on the show's mythology, but it's so much fun to watch thanks to Casey's grumpiness and the couple-y goodness of it all.
5. "Chuck Versus the Ring"
Awesome and Ellie's wedding is one of the show's emotional highlights. There are plenty of fun moments — like Jeffster's performance — but at the heart of the episode is Chuck's drive to give Ellie the wedding she always wanted. The fact that he accomplishes it totally by accident somehow only makes it better.
6. "Chuck Versus Operation Awesome"
Awesome becoming the first person in Chuck's family to find out about his spy life is an inspired choice. And it's one that leads to a strong episode as Awesome, the guy Chuck looks up to and admires, reveals to Chuck that the feeling has always been mutual.
7. "Chuck Versus The Beard"
Chuck telling Awesome the truth leads to one of the show's funniest episodes, but Chuck telling Morgan is a four-hankie event. The friendship between the two characters was always one of the show's strongest assets, and it's never better utilized than it is here.
8. "Chuck Versus The Honeymooners"
It's amazing to see that when Chuck and Sarah finally get together for real, they ultimately decide to choose the spy life together. Seeing them admit to each other just how much they love their work is a big step for the characters, and it gave the show a clear path forward after Chuck and Sarah finally made things official.
9. "Chuck Versus The Push Mix"
Casey and Alex start to bond, Ellie and Awesome meet their daughter, and in an entirely silent, unbelievably moving scene, Chuck proposes to Sarah. It doesn't get much better than that.
10. "Chuck Versus The Cliffhanger"
After four seasons, Chuck and Sarah finally say "I do," and honestly, how could any list be complete without this episode? Fans wanted nothing more than to see these two together, and seeing them get married is just as satisfying as everyone hoped it would be.
11. "Chuck Versus The Goodbye"
The final episode of Chuck was divisive thanks to Sarah's memory loss, but there's no denying that it offered each of the characters a fitting end to their journey. And it's definitely well worth revisiting.
Chuck may be over, but true fans know that they can always go home again by queuing up one of these must-see episodes.
