Trivia

A verbal and visual pun exists on this episode: the president of the country plans to sign a peace-agreement "at the summit" (i.e., after he rides the sky-car to the top of the mountain), and the negotiations he is having with Pete and Mac would be referred to as a "summit meeting". See more »

Goofs

There is no way that Mac could have recovered from his gunshot wound that fast, to be able to climb ladders and do sky-car "acrobatics" just a couple hours later, especially since he'd received no proper medical attention up to that point --- just a simple bandage wouldn't heal him up that easily/quickly.
