Pop Culture: When Chuck cuts the wire on the Herder's self-destruct, the timer stops at 7 seconds. This echoes the scene in Goldfinger when Bond disarms a bomb set to explode inside Fort Knox, which also stops at 7 seconds.
However the Herder's timer has an extra digit, making the time read 00:07 rather than 0:07 (Double-Oh 7). The film Goldfinger was discussed on several occasions leading up to this scene.
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.
