Zachary Levi: You know, honestly I wish I had a much more thought-through intelligent answer to this, but when we were shooting that what it basically came down to was that, you know, because we’re this kind of Geek Squad competitor, I guess, you know, we’re very much like the Geek Squad but we’re not the Geek Squad. I just thought it would be funny to have a moment where, you know, if she calls us a geek, maybe that’s something that we take personally because we’re not the Geek Squad, we’re the Nerd Herd.
Zachary Levi: What a great question.
Josh Schwartz: What a great problem to have.
So anything that feels like it’s a flirtation or a chemistry between them, you know, Chuck is always wondering, well, is this real, is this part of the cover, you know, where do we stand.
And then because of Chuck’s spy-infested world that he finds himself in, maybe this Rachel Bilson character isn’t exactly who she says she is after all dot dot dot.
Chit Chat Gal: Josh, you’re working on both Chuck and Gossip Girl. How are you finding time to sleep?
Josh Schwartz: It’s really fun. I mean, I ‘m really lucky that I have a great group of writers on Chuck starting with Chris Fedak who is co-creator of the show with me and who is awesome, and, you know, Gossip Girl I’m working with Stephanie Savage, so there’s just great teams all the way around and it makes my life a lot easier.
