Did You Know?


Although the episode shows as taking place starting on October 20, 2001 (this is the first episode to take place in JAG time after 9-11-01), the only references to the 9-11 attacks are a scene showing heightened security at the JAG HQ and a character mentioning someone was at the World Trade Center. It appears the bulk of the episode was filmed before the attacks took place. See more »


During the flight with the stealth plane, Harm says they are at "Angels 50" or 50,000 feet. Neither he nor his RIO are wearing oxygen masks, which would have been necessary at that altitude. They are shown wearing them in a subsequent scene. See more »
