There's got to be at least one person out there who noticed this too

I'm hoping that someone else in internet land paid close enough attention to The O.C. and also watches Chuck, so that I don't feel like the loneliest tv nerd in tv nerddom for having noticed that last night's episode of Chuck featured a scene that was a direct quote of a scene from The O.C. (episode: "The Countdown"). Both shows are helmed by Josh Schwartz, so it's some inside baseball/self mocking that really cracked me up. Here's the scene from The O.C.:

I can't find video of the clip from Chuck, but they played the same song ("Dice"), had the same set up -- the leading man running in slow motion to make it to a party on time before he was given up on... except rather than running to his paramour, he's running to his geeky best friend. And rather than getting there in time to return an "I love you" and share a midnight kiss on new years, he's getting there in time to be the butt in their annual sand worm halloween costume. Chuck's sister's Marissa-mirroring hair do was a nice touch.

Yes, you are the only nerd and your hippocampus is out of control.
MAN! The OC used to be good.
