As in, 25 + 25 = 50. As in, 50 miles per hour, the speed after which the bomb on the bus becomes armed. Get it?

Now, it's certainly possible that this was a mere coincidence, but it would indeed have to be quite the bout of luck considering the immaculate attention-to-detail employed by de Bont in basically every aspect of the film's production.
