Chuck and Sarah are arriving back at the apartment complex, and Chuck says he knows it's not real, but he's excited for this job. She tells him to remember it's just an assignment. He knows, but he wished he'd gotten a job like this sooner, and maybe he wouldn't have been the Intersect, and then when his dad came back, he'd be doing something better than working at the Buy More. Sarah reminds him that he is, and they walk inside. Ellie, Awesome, Bakula and Morgan are sitting around the table. Bakula asks where Chuck's been, and Chuck says he's been working. Ellie toasts to family, about how grateful they are to have him home. He returns the toast, to Ellie and Awesome, hoping they're happy together. He asks when the bachelor party is, and Ellie immediately stiffens. Awesome says he had it already, but doesn't want to talk about it. So Morgan says he has a toast: to Chuck's new job. Chuck looks shocked. Ellie wonders what's up. Morgan says Lester tells him that Chuck's leaving his friends and the Buy More behind to work for Roark. Ellie thinks it's amazing, but Bakula looks hurt and asks if Chuck's going to work for the man who stole everything from him.
Chuck shows up for work as NextExpo's getting started. He greets a geeked-up Sarah and Casey mockingly, but Sarah explains they're going in to retrieve the source of the operating system so that Roark can't release the virus-infected software. Casey says it will take some time, though, so Chuck needs to keep an eye on Roark in case anything goes wrong. Chuck tries to protest, but Casey just says, "Have a nice first day." Chuck goes in, and Casey and Sarah sneak off.
Chuck enters the auditorium where they'll apparently launch the software. Jeff and Lester see Chuck and try to wave at him, but he is flashing on a Fulcrum agent behind them, which to them looks like he's looking right at them and ignoring them. They say he's already forgotten them. Poor Jester. Chuck calls Sarah and Casey to tell them he flashed on a Fulcrum computer terrorist. At the apartment, Bakula turns on a live feed to watch the launch, since it's Chuck's first day. Roark's introduced and welcomes everyone. He makes a lot of lame jokes about how great he is, then says the operating system, RIOS, will change the world. Sarah and Casey are encountering very tough security [The touch screens talk in Chevy Chase's voice. Creepy! - Z], and even set off an alarm, so they tell Chuck he has to stop the release. He doesn't want to get fired, but Casey reminds him it's not a real job. So Chuck jumps on stage and yells, "Wait!" Roark asks what the hell he's doing. Ellie tells Bakula that Chuck must have gotten promoted, which is a totally cute Ellie thing to think. Chuck whispers to Roark about the CIA thinking the software's been infected with a virus. Roark tells Chuck he sounds crazy, and he doesn't believe him. He moves on, so Chuck grabs his launch button and runs. People boo him, but Lester and Jeff cheer for him, and even help him knock out some of the guys chasing him. At home, Sarah yells "No, Chuck!" as Bakula cheers him on. Chuck's ultimately knocked out by the dweeb who hired him. He gives the launch button back to Roark, who launches the thing. The world doesn't end. Just like Y2K.
