Flashes: Chuck then flashes on the building where the visiting General Stanfield is giving an address and puts together all the pieces from the flashes he had been having: the stranger in the Large Mart is a demolitions expert and has set a bomb to destroy the conference.

Goof--During the car chase, the NSA's black SUV rams into Chuck's little car. The front license plate breaks off and is hanging on by one corner. When it's backing down the stairs, the plate has somehow reattached itself perfectly to the bumper.

  • The size of the laser aimed at Chuck during the rooftop standoff changes in every shot.
  • Although it is later revealed that Sarah is the intruder, the person fighting is male.
  • When Chuck and the female CIA agent are running through a pool of water - she has been wearing stiletto heels all night but while running out of the pool she is wearing flats.

Trivia--The scene at the hotel which shows Chuck, Sarah and Casey running through the fountain is taken from TV series "The O.C.", which is also produced by Josh Schwartz.

Allusions: In the scene where agent Bryce is trying to evade capture before his death, he uses free running or "parkour" to escape. This is new trend of extreme sports started in France and is seen most notably in the film, District B13.  copied district 13 sequence completely.

Chuck Bartowski was just your average computer geek until the day he got an e-mail from an old college friend/enemy who had gone to work for the CIA. It contained an entire server of government secrets subliminally encoded to download into his brain. Now, he has two government agents protecting him, one posing as a co-worker and the other as his new girlfriend. Though they're just as likely to shoot him if he makes the wrong move.
