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

Pete says MacGyver has never fired a gun at anybody in his life. Yet at least twice in the series MacGyver has been seen firing a gun at the enemy, including for a brief couple seconds in the opening of the pilot. See more »

MacGyver: Yep.
