Ellie and Chuck are in the kitchen of their apartment. Chuck is planning on cooking Sarah dinner, Ellie is unsure about his cooking skills. Awesome and Ellie head out and I can't figure out the point of that scene except to give Ellie and Awesome some contractually obligated screen time. Chuck gets ready for dinner. Elsewhere, some anonymous Intelligence agents prepare the Cipher to be loaded into the Intersect. Meanwhile, Casey breaks into Chuck's apartment with a handgun fitted with a silencer. Chuck pours wine into the glasses because he likes dusty wine for his dates. The cipher is put into the Intersect. Ten men in black suits and sunglasses file into the room with the Intersect. They are joined by General Candyman. Casey creeps through Chuck's apartment. Chuck practices the speech he plans to make to Sarah. The men in sunglasses take off their sunglasses preparing to be loaded with Intersect data. General Candyman dons sunglasses to shield himself from the knowledge. The Intersect appears to be a Mac Classic with about 512k of memory. The Intersect is turned on. The lights and coded images fill the room. A message flashes on the screen: Fulcrum thanks you. The room explodes. No more General Candyman? Wait! Casey! Don't kill Chuck! He's the only Intersect left! Casey waits for his shot. Sarah rings the doorbell. When Chuck answers he knows something is wrong. Sarah explains that they have to call off the date because the Intersect was destroyed. The Cipher was merely a Trojan horse that destroyed everything the second it was engaged. Once again Chuck is the only Intersect. In the wings, Casey hears the news. He slinks away. Chuck is depressed.
At the Buy More, Lester harasses Chuck. He hasn't had any compliments about Chuck and in his mind that is the same thing as a complaint. As the assistant manager he is going to require more. Chuck and I ignore him. Morgan comes to cheer Chuck up. Chuck thought he was going places. He thought he was going to be somebody. Morgan knows Chuck will be going places, but before he goes he should know that Jeff just agreed to eat 90 Twinkies in three minutes. It's impossible. He could die. Chuck should really watch that. As Chuck hurries after Morgan, he sees Casey. He invites him to watch Jeff choke on a Twinkie and Casey jumps at the chance. Heh.
