#3 - Chuck The Prophet
Why is Chuck so high? Heâ€™s a prophet for Godâ€™s sake! An ordinary, average sad sack loser who was chosen by someone high above (maybe even God himself) to see and write the all important story of â€œThe new New Testament.â€ Heâ€™s instantly earned protection from an archangel and canâ€™t even kill himself, for angels have that covered too.
Oh, but poor Chuck. Heâ€™s a loveable guy that didnâ€™t take the news of his holy destiny very well. Who would though? I mean, what happens when you write an entire series of novels on fictional brothers saving the world only to have them show up on your doorstep one day? What do you do when you end up writing yourself into the story because you see it during your â€œprocess,â€ but omit pertinent details like one brother drinking demon blood to make him look less sympathetic and to leave out the fact youâ€™re a prophet to avoid â€œM. Nightâ€ level of douchiness?
Itâ€™s all a bit too much for Chuck, who when called upon to perform heroics balks at it entirely. Eventually he caves to intimidation by Dean. He does save the day though, so no matter how heâ€™s pushed, he scores big. Heâ€™s far less reluctant when asked to give the location of Sam in the finale, probably because he knows the end is coming. His attempt to order a night with 20 high priced hookers lets on he knows something we donâ€™t. In the face of danger though, he stands beside Castiel in solidarity against the archangel, even if Castiel doesnâ€™t care for the shoulder grab. Angels are so damned touchy!
"Look, uh, I appreciate your enthusiasm. Really, I do. It's always nice to hear from a fan. But for your own good I strongly suggest you get a life."
Chuck: Oh. wow. Wow. That sounds...moist. Uh, what are your rates?
Woman: (on the phone): We can get you one girl, one hour -- $1,000.
Chuck: Okay. Then, uh, I'll take 20 girls for the whole night.
Woman: Um, sir, I'm not sure you can afford that.
Chuck: Lady, sometimes you got to live like there's no tomorrow.
