  • Season 2 Episode 22: Chuck Versus the Ring

  • The film Tron (1982) is referenced throughout the series (Chuck's poster in his room etc.) As a nod to the film, the actor who actually played Tron in the movie, Bruce Boxleitner, makes a guest appearance in this episode as Devon's father, Woody.

  • In the beginning of this episode, General Beckman tells Sarah and Bryce that they are supposed to leave for Zurich (Switzerland) the next morning.
    She ends her speech by saying "Auf Wiedersehen" which is "goodbye" in German, one of the four national languages of Switzerland.

  • Towards the end of the episode, Chuck drops into an all white room which contains the Intersect computer and re-downloads an updated version of the Intersect back into his head then destroys it. This scene mirrors the scene in the pilot episode that introduces Bryce Larkin.

  • Bryce lies bleeding in the all white room; but when he is moved, there is no blood seen anywhere in this room.

    "Creature Fear" by Bon Iver (Chuck and Sarah wake up)

  • During the episode Emmett has labeled Morgan as his assistant manager or "ass man". This was also a running joke during "Chuck Versus the Seduction", where Chuck leapt from the Buy More off of a "new assistant manager" banner. After it was ripped down and put back up it read "new ass man".

  • Season 2 Episode 19: Chuck Versus the Dream Job

  • The episode has a smattering of indirect references to Silicon Valley execs. The whole NextExpo is a reference to Steve Job's second computer company "NeXT Computer". During the Expo, Ted Roark brags about money similar to Larry Ellison's wealth. The entire casual dress and office atmosphere is reminiscent of Google and others. The line where Ted states to Chucks father "I always had the way with the girls" is a reference to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Woz was always the computer guy who could create anything while Jobs was the master salesman. Ted's glasses, monster image and goals to taking over the world seem to be a reference to Bill Gates and Microsoft.

  • Featured Music:
    "Highschool Hoodlums" by The Datsuns (Chuck shows up for his interview/Chuck meets Ted Roark)
    "Around The Bend" by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour (NextExpo kicks off)

    "Daddy's Gone" by Glasvegas (Chuck gets a free pass/closing scene)

  • At the end when Ellie tells Chuck that their Dad's gone, the song "Daddy's Gone" by Glasvegas is playing in a non-censored version, as the f-word is audible just after Ellie says "I guess".

  • Chuck's father tells Chuck "Aces, Charles." This was said by Chuck's sister Ellie in the pilot episode where Chuck replied, "A dad quote, I'm impressed."
