At the apartment, Captain Awesome and his cronies (does that sound like a band, or is that just me?) are playing football in the really small courtyard. Apparently, the UCLA frat boys are driving up to the football game at (can you guess?) Stanford! Captain Awesome throws the ball at Chuck's balls and totally hits 'em! What is this, The Three Stooges? To make up for the crippling injury, the so-called doctor offers Chuck two tickets to the game. Do they teach that in med school, "Doctor"? Chuck says he would rather get hit in the produce again than go back to Stanford. Ellie thinks Chuck should go. Which is really weird, in my opinion. Why does no one, not even Ellie, his supposed surrogate mother, realize that getting kicked out of hoity-toity Stanford and being forced to work at the Buy More might be kind of painful for Chuck? Why do they insist on bringing it up all the time and rubbing it in his face? Is it just my WASPy repression that makes it seem like bringing it up all the freakin' time is wrong? Whatever. Chuck still doesn't want to go.
Chuck goes to his room and pulls out a box of Stanford memories. He finds a picture of Bryce, and while Oasis's "Don't Look Back in Anger" plays, Chuck has a flashback to 2003. Apparently the writers have been watching a lot of Cold Case. In the flashback, Chuck has packed up his belongings and is leaving the frat house, which, of course, raises the question: since when do they let gamer/D&D/Star Wars aficionado-types into frats? Oh, right, this is Stanford. They're all like that. As Chuck leaves the frat, he sees Bryce staring down a pool ball. Chuck asks why he is doing this, and Bryce tells Chuck he did it to himself. Back in real time, Chuck heads to the dumpster and throws his Stanford memories away. He drops his ID, and when he picks it up to throw it out, he flashes on himself. He looks freaked and goes to knock on Casey's door. Casey obviously has his gun out (what better way to ward off those pesky door-knocking assassins? Not to mention Mormons!) Chuck wants to know why he is in the national security computers. Casey and Sarah don't know. Maybe if they find the missing Professor, he can tell them. You think? The CIA interviewed witnesses who identified the Angry Aryan as an Icelandic spy. And, yes, Iceland has spies, although unofficially. And this spy? The crossbow is his favorite weapon. Can you guess where this is going?
