  1. Date unconfirmed.
  2. Ellie Bartowski was born 1978 making Linda Hamilton 22 when Ellie was born. That would make Mary Bartowski 21 when becoming pregnant with Ellie .
  3. In Chuck Versus the Couch Lock, Casey's driver's license is shown as expiring 0X-Y7-12. Considering Adam Baldwin was born 02-27-62, that is probably the day of the year. For the license to expire in 2012, he probably was born 1961 or 1966, with 1961 being closer.
  4. Chuck Versus the Undercover Lover
  5. Ellie is first year medical student in 2000 in Chuck Versus Angel of Death flashback.
  6. Chuck Versus Agent X
  7. Drivers License in Chuck Versus the Honeymooners expired 5-19-12. By that, he would have been 31 in 2012, so 1981. That's could also be required for Morgan to be in the same grad as Chuck, unless he skipped a grade or Chuck was held back.
  8. In Feb 2009, Bolonia Grimes says Morgan is 26 in "Chuck vs the Suburbs," though that could be to make herself seem younger because it doesn't match the driver's license and would mean either Morgan skipped a grade, Chuck was held back for being ready to graduate Stanford as an honors student in 3 years, or maybe they weren't in the same grade in school.
  9. Verbanski Corp. Dossier of Walker had month and year, but no date (Chuck Versus the Bearded Bandit), not realistic.
  10. Chuck Versus the Cougars.
  11. Sarah's on the run, living under fake identities, so her age is unknown. Most likely, Jenny was thought to be 18 when Jack was arrested. Otherwise, someone from school would have sent CPS to collect her.
  12. Chuck Versus Tom Sawyer, 2x04. Original timeline date was 1983, with an unknown reference. Missile Command came out July 1980. Super Missile Attack and Liberator came out in 1981 and 1982, so while a televised result could have been those years, it was probably not much later. Missile Command peaked as the 10th highest grossing in Japan in 1980. (US rankings for that year are not available.)
  13. Chuck Versus the Living Dead
  14. Chuck Versus the Wedding Planner
  15. Chuck Versus the Balcony.
  16. 16.0 16.1 16.2 16.3 Chuck Versus the Tic Tac
  17. Chuck Versus Seduction Impossible (more than 21 years later). According to the end of the episode, they met in Budapest of Spring 2020, which was 20 years later without a "twenty years later" argument.
  18. Chuck Versus the DeLorean, 2x10
  19. Unknown reference
  20. Unknown reference
  21. Chuck Versus the Ring Part 2
  22. 22.0 22.1 22.2 22.3 Last report on Project Isis, recovered in Chuck Versus the Aisle of Terror
  23. Chuck Verus the Best Friend, 2x14
  24. Flashback at begging of Chuck Versus the Anniversary, in which Mary reads story about the Frost Queen to young Chuck.
  25. Chuck Versus the Sensei, 2x09
  26. Unknown reference
  27. Chuck Versus the Bearded Bandit
  28. 28.0 28.1 Chuck Versus the Cougars, 2x04
  29. Unknown reference. In Chuck Versus the CAT Squad. Sarah says the CATS hunted the Gentle Hand for years. That means they started hunting the Gentle Hand 2001 or earlier, and they likely existed before then.
  30. Chuck Versus the Alma Mater, 1x07
  31. Chuck Versus the Alma Mater, 1x07. C++ would be an unusual course for a first semester Freshman. Other computer programming courses would be first to teach concepts. C++ would be Sophomore year at the earliest.
  32. Chuck Versus the Couch Lock
  33. Chuck Versus the Angel of Death
  34. Chuck Versus the Gravitron, 2x08
  35. Chuck Versus the Alma Mater Flemming's recruitment video
  36. 36.0 36.1 Chuck Versus the Alma Mater, 1x07
  37. Eight years ago, the CATS went after the Gentle Hand. Chuck Versus the CAT Squad
  38. Unknown reference
  39. Chuck Versus the Undercover Lover, 1x12
  40. Unconfirmed. "Five years ago," before Chuck Versus First Class
  41. Unknown reference
  42. Chuck Versus the Break-Up, 2x03
  43. Chuck Versus the Intersect
  44. Chuck Versus the Baby; "Five years ago" years before "Chuck Versus the Baby," making this December 2006, but the episode indicates this was immediately before events of "Chuck Versus the Intersect" because the Intersect mission to investigate Chuck in Burbank was Sarah's next assignment.
  45. Chuck Versus the Baby - redacted file about Ryker
  46. 46.0 46.1 46.2 46.3 46.4 46.5 46.6 46.7 46.8 Air dates often cannot be episode dates in the timeline because of things like events on holidays and the fact that most episodes are more than one day. Air dates cannot line up with possible dates in the timeline because of two episodes sometimes aired on the same date and there were breaks in the schedule. When there's no limitation, they are a good starting point. Ranges are when dates cannot be nailed down definitively. Sometimes, days of the week limitations are provided with the ranges. Many episodes are time-compressed, with too many events happening in one day. When this is the case the "Events" entry has "(time compressed). Also travel time can be an issue because it was generally ignored, often the case in TV shows.
  47. Various sources, assuming Chuck's party and the email were on his birthday
  48. Newspaper article seen by Ellie said both that he died in a robbery and that he died in an automobile crash during a fishing expedition. on 9/23. Since he died in Alexandria, VA, there would not be a photo in an LA paper and not that soon.
  49. With Bryce 1. being from Connecticut (Chuck said in Chuck Versus the Intersect when he learned about Bryce being a spy from Sarah; article in newspaper in Chuck Versus the Helicopter), 2. living in "Washington" - presumably Washington, DC, not the state (article in newspaper in Chuck Versus the Helicopter) 3. being killed in Alexandria, VA (article in newspaper in Chuck Versus the Helicopter) a funeral in Southern California is not likely. Even if he was buried there, the body would not be there in a day, especially after a car crash or robbery. That means this is time compressed. This is the day, considering what happened in the episode.
  50. Day 1 of Sarah's Mission Log, Chuck Versus Sarah
  51. Jeff's newspaper said Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Chuck said the art auction is "tomorrow."
  52. Day 21 of Sarah's Mission Log
  53. Both Chuck and Sarah wore different clothes.
  54. Day 49 of Sarah's Mission Log
  55. The Club Ares flyer which Chuck flashed on during Chuck and Lou's first date says Friday. Considering the end of the previous episode and Sarah's mission log date, then the Friday must be for a different party, with Chuck and Lou going to Club Ares on Saturday, different than the party on the Flyer. (Or it was a bad prop.)
  56. Day 56 of Sarah's Mission Log
  57. Potentially same day as previous.
  58. 1x11
  59. Show implied this was day after Bryce invited Sarah to go with him, but then party would be 11/27 and dreidel would be before Hanukkah. Hanukkah was 12/4/07-12/12/07. Sarah's alarm could have been a bad morning later.
  60. Chuck said he was going to stay landlocked "tonight" implying the cruise was for the same day. Chuck was still working, but Morgan and Anna were not, implying they had a shorter shift or Morgan was asking Chuck and Sarah to ditch work.
  61. Big Mike says party is on Friday. It wouldn't be close to Christmas at a retail store.
  62. Wedding probably Saturday
  63. 29 schwarma orders that month
  64. Date +8, Mighty Jocks are playing Madden, so it is probably football season, but Chuck's birthday is not mentioned over next 10 days, so it is after that.
  65. "Bruce" was Sarah's original cover-name of her ex to Chuck. After he knew it was Bryce, Ellie thought it was still Bruce.
  66. Before Bartowski Mother's Day.
  67. from the back, so she couldn't ID him
  68. reunions on Saturdays
  69. 69.0 69.1 Conference on weekday
  70. 70.0 70.1 Unusual because no Christmas decorations are up in retail store, even in early December, but they would be up even then. Early is more likely.
  71. Chuck Verses the Nancho Sampler when Shaw questions Sarah about the gap in her timeline, testing her as a possible Ring agent.
  72. Flashback in Chuck Versus the Pink Slip at Castle. Sarah told Chuck to meet her in three weeks.
  73. Best Friend was preempted for a Presidental Address. The broadcast order of Best Friend and Suburbs were reversed to put the Valentine's Day episode (Suburbs) closer to 2/14. The reverse order was maintained on DVDs. However, the original planned order makes more sense. (Why break up immediately after the Africa/best friend moment. In the original order, that moment made Valentine's Day awkward and the Suburbs led to a break up, without the Charah "best friends" moment in between.
  74. Date on survillience phot of Cole arriving in LA
  75. Chuck would be out of unnecessary cast, so probably at least a week
  76. Next Expo flyer
  77. Day 564 of Sarah's Mission Log
  78. Chuck Versus the Pink Slip
  79. Chuck Versus the Beard when Casey texts Shaw that the mission was a setup.
  80. Chuck's perscription renewal with Dr. Feldman filled in Paris.
  81. At new DWB location in Conga, Ellie says she has seen more patients in "two weeks."
  82. Congo is 9 hours ahead of LA, so it couldn't be dinner during the Otto mission and would be a different day.
  83. Chuck wore different shirt for final message from Stephen, but the same shirt when going to the Orion Cave the first time as when he told Morgan about it.
  84. One boarding pass for "Charles Carmichael" said December 27, which is not possible.
  85. The map showing where Chuck and Morgan search had 26-28 locations.
  86. Sarah said she hadn't seen Chuck "in months" implying this is > 60 days, which is possible.
  87. Both scenes were at night, so this had to be the next day.
  88. Time compressed. Two interviews the same day would be unusual. Five on short notice and before going to the Buy More is not possible,
  89. This implied Morgan and Alex were not together, or at least not exclusive.
  90. This is not possible, considering it is before Chuck Versus the Suitcase, when Ellie is 13 weeks pregnant and gives birth to Clara in January 2911.
  91. Conversation with Devon and Ellie at beginning of Chuck Versus the Suitcase.
  92. Ellie 13 weeks pregant, so ~27 weeks before Clara born. This is not possible, considering it is after Chuck Versus the Anniversary, which is 6-9 months after Chuck and Sarah got together and Clara was born in January 2011.
  93. Milan Fashion week was February 22-26, 2010.
  94. At least 2nd day of Milan Fashion Week. Video on Day 184 after blowing up Buy More.
  95. Flights from Milan to LA and back are time compressed.
  96. Time compressed because physical magazine could not be produced so quickly after cat fight.
  97. Video games are release on Tuesday.
  98. Not the 9/14 to avoid Chuck's birthday on subsequent date because it would have been mentioned.
  99. Before 35 weeks of Ellie's pregnancy to fly
  100. Morgan's vest from the previous season would not fit Big Mike.
  101. Two weeks before beginning of beginning of Chuck Versus the Aisle of Terror
  102. 10/29, when considering Halloween decorations not being up in Buy More in Chuck Versus the First Fight, with with Chuck Versus the Fear of Death having 31 days of testing, it has to be earlier. Aisle of Terror put up in Buy More, so this is October 2010,
  103. It would not be ready in a day unless it was planned and the decorations had been acquired.
  104. No Halloween or Christmas decorations in Buy More, so this seems like November, but Chuck Versus the Fear of Death had 31 days of testing, and it was several days before the day after Thanksgiving in Chuck Versus the Leftovers. It makes more sense for the Aisle of Terror to be so offensive, Morgan ordered all decorations to be taken down. (Ignoring obvious problems in which the timeline simply does not work.)
  105. This is what emphasizes that Buy More Halloween decorations were taken down mid-October. (either because of the offensive Aisle of Terror or not seen in Chuck Versus the First Fight) If Chuck Versus the Fear of Death started in November, based on Buy More decorations, then training started 11/5. In the show, it said week 4, which could be 22 days or 11/27. In the show, Chuck said day 31, which is 12/7. Next was Rye training, the Switzerland mission, and Chuck Versus Phase. That's 5 days, making it 12/2 or 12/12 for the leftovers. However, Chuck Versus the Leftovers, ended the day after Thanksgiving, 11/27. All this means it is more likely that either Halloween decorations were taken down early in October or were not seen in Chuck Versus the First Fight.
  106. Embassy is in DC. The Consulate would be in LA, and it's not Thai soil.
  107. 2+ days because of travel time and time zones
  108. Lester's "Tuesday trapeze class" had been canceled.
  109. Presumably, this was not Thanksgiving.
  110. Day after Thanksgiving
  111. Chuck Versus the Push Mix aired January 31, but the subsequent episode dictated the subsequent Friday, making it January 30.
  112. Show implied this was the same day, but it had to be the next day because of travel time.
  113. Amy's pre-mission dialogue has Carinval, aka Mardis Gras, which was 3/8/2011. However, this episode is before Valentine's Day at the beginning of the next episode, which had Morgan move out of Chuck and Sarah's apartment at the end.
  114. 4x16 started Valentine's Day, but 4x15 took place over Carnival (aka Mardi Gras) in Rio, which was in 3/8 that year, so they were out of order chronologically.
  115. Beckman said party was "tonight," but it was already the next day in England, so this had to be the next night.
  116. Based on Ellie's statement about how long Clara had been sleeping in Ellie and Devon's room and not the nursery, but it couldn't be even three weeks.
  117. Chuck Versus the Bullet Train
  118. View from the Bluff
  119. This might be possible over 2 days, with a break before the Bale mission started, but in the episode, Woodley says the party is the next night. It appeared he came to Castle the same day as the Jean-Claude mission. As is, Morgan had no time to create the T.I.T.S. binder.
  120. Originally planned air-date was 10/28, before Halloween, not 11/4, a week later. It was delayed because 5x01 was delayed. (It took place June-July anyway.)
  121. Halloween decorations are up.
  122. Big Mike mentioned "International Pancake Day," but that is not likely, so it is a throwaway line about the Buy More being empty. National Pancake Day is September 26, so that is closer, though a little early for Halloween decorations. In many countries, "Pancake Day" is another name for "Shrove Tuesday," the 47 days before Easter.
  123. A commercial isn't likely to start on a Sunday, but that entire plot-line on the previous day was unrealistically time-compressed. It is not possible to start filming several bad ads, recruit a new actor, film a commerical, and air the commercial so customers come in one day.
  124. 5x03 appeared to be two days, so this had to be before it.
  125. Halloween decorations not up.
  126. Lester said the convention was during the weekend at Riverside.
  127. There would not be a CIA Christmas party on Christmas Eve.
  128. Date picked because otherwise, New Year's Eve night would have been mentioned.
  129. New Year's Eve night was not mentioned.
  130. Buy More is open, so it can't be 1/1.
  131. Movie night was postponed until "next week," but the schedule is too tight, so this is 4 days later instead of 7.
  132. "Few months" after Morgan's Frosted Tips trip to Vail, CO.
  133. Day lost because time to get from night in LA to daytime in Japan.
  134. Time to get from Daytime in Japan to night in LA
  135. Two weeks after end of 5x12.
  136. The beach scene is traditional thought to be 1/27, the air date of the final. However, because unmentioned holidays and other episodes, it cannot be then. This is unlike the "time compressed" episodes because there are a limited number of possible days. Removing travel time and time zones between LA and Japan only saves 2 days. However, if the "two weeks later" gap because Chuck Versus Sarah and Chuck Versus the Goodbye is shortened from 14 days to 8 days, then it can work.
  137. Valentine's Day was not mentioned.
  138. They didn't appear to own the store before, but put up a sign that day? Business sales and sign production isn't that fast.
