• IGN: I was just asking about that final line of dialogue and Sarah saying, "Kiss me, Chuck," and if there were thoughts about other things she might say…
  • Schwartz: "Fuck me, Chuck," right?

“[Sarah getting Intersected and losing her memory] came about at the end of last season. We started working out what would happen if Morgan had the Intersect and the more we talked about it, the more we thought it would be cool if the Intersect had a different effect on other people, especially this new version of the Intersect. And then we thought… The biggest part of the show was the Chuck/Sarah relationship and that there would be nothing as dramatic as what happens if one of them would have their memories [taken away] - that they would lose the relationships if something as traumatic as this could happen. And we thought it just infused a very big emotion into the final two episodes. It was part of our pitch to NBC and it was there from the get go.” — Fedak (source)


“…the other thing about that ending is that in the final moments of the show, it’s the emotional toughness. Chuck is there and he’s not telling Sarah, remember me, please remember me, he’s not crying, he’s not pleading with her. He’s just telling her that it’s going to be OK, that he’s going to help her. He’s there however she needs him. That was a big moment. Zac and Yvonne knew exactly what they were doing. We’ve been doing this for five years now. We talked about it for a second, and he knew this was the maturation moment. This was something totally internal and was Chuck being a real husband.” — Chris Fedak (source)


“The resounding truth about Chuck (its eternal legacy if you will) is that it’s not the amount of fans that matter, but the passion they hold. And the type of projects that get created, greenlit, and pushed forward should be the quality shows that have passionate fans. If your TV show isn’t at least one person’s favorite show, then you’re doing something wrong. And in the case of Chuck, Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak did something right.” — An excerpt from a review of the Chuck finale. (via yogaseal)


“Sarah tells Chuck to trust her in the pilot because she knows the spy world, but now Chuck has asked Sarah to trust him because he can teach her the world she doesn’t know. And it was beautiful.” — (via zachonnemongroncharahstelena)


“Whether or not Chuck’s kiss performs the Disney princess trick and breaks the evil spell all at once or not, it’s clear Sarah is coming back. She remembers how to stock the Wienerlicious counter. She remembers Irene Demova. She remembers them carving their names into the frame of their dream house. And as Chuck tells her the story of their great romance, you can see her slowly beginning to connect with the rest. If she’s not all the way back now, she will be eventually. He’s her Chuck, she’s his Sarah, and they get to fall in love all over again, and that’s pretty damn sweet. We may not know exactly what the future holds for those two, but we know that they’ll be together, and all the rest is details. Once upon a time, Sarah was Chuck’s guide into a strange new world, and now he gets to return the favor.” — Alan Sepinwall (via neuralmente)


“The last month felt like one of the biggest emotional roller coasters of my life. It was like breaking up with someone who you’ve been with so many years. It was like, who will be in my life now? And how the hell do I say goodbye to Sarah Walker and everything she stands for in my life? I knew it would be emotional, I just didn’t think it would be that emotional.” — Yvonne Strahovski [x] (via canbelieveme)


“And the final thing I’ll say is that this was the story of a guy who felt he had all this potential but never lived up to it. A guy who felt he had the promise to be something better than he was when we first met him. This underdog, this nerd, who’s thrust into this life and lives up to it and becomes a hero spoke to people. A lot of people saw themselves in Chuck, and want to believe that if given their own opportunity they could also become a hero.” —

“Sarah’s Intersect story allowed us to relive the reasons (and even the moments) we fell in love with this series in the first place. Her ability to believe Chuck, to tell him her feelings (or lack thereof), to want him to kiss her, to break through the memory-wiping and begin to remember, it just proves how much of an epic love story Chuck and Sarah are. Regardless of whether or not she had her memories back, Sarah had been affected by Chuck. Nothing could change that.” — Michael Collado (via nowhitenoise)


“The realization that there’s no more ‘Buy More,’ no more Chuck and Morgan, no more Chuck and Casey, no more Chuck and Sarah. That’s heady stuff. It really hit you like a ton of bricks towards the end. I spent more time with that cast and crew than my own friends and family. The last episode, in particular, was incredibly charged with emotion and reflection. I feel like we were able to offer the fans a finale that was fitting of the rest of the series, something that homages a lot to the beginnings of ‘Chuck’ the show, and Chuck the character.” — Zachary Levi [x] (via canbelieveme)
