  • This lame flashback episode is perhaps the one MacGyver episode where there was zero hope of it being good from the get-go.

  • Quotes (3)

    • Pete: I've been independent. I'm going to have to learn to live by a whole new set of rules. I'm going to have to learn to be very dependent. MacGyver: So what, what's the big deal? You and I have always been dependent on each other. Pete: Oh, yeah, sure. You provide the brains, and I come up with the paychecks.

    • Pete: Maybe I would like to handle this alone, okay? MacGyver: No! No, it's not okay! You've always been there for me. Friendship works two ways, you know?

    • MacGyver: Pete Thornton's room, please. Nurse Krandall: 211. MacGyver: How's he doin'? Nurse Krandall: If getting him into a hospital gown is any indication, terrible.

    • The following episodes are used in flashbacks: "Children of Light", "Deep Cover", "Passages", "Easy Target", "Brainwashed", "On a Wing and a Prayer", and "Cleo Rocks".

    • Previously played by Penelope Windust in "Family Matter", the role of Connie Thornton is now played by Linda Darlow.

    • The episode ends with Richard Dean Anderson appearing on-screen directing people to the National Society to Prevent Blindness.

    • The German episode title is "Lektion in Sachen Freundschaft", meaning "Lesson in Friendship". The Finnish episode title is "Katse taaksepäin", meaning "Looking Back". The French episode title is "Souvenirs", meaning "Memories". The Italian episode title is "L'uno per l'altro", meaning "One for the Other".

    Trivia (2)

    • The notes that Connie sends to Pete refers to him as "Peter," which he hates. She also refers to him that way when she arrives at the hospital. However, in "Family Matters" she called him "Pete" constantly from the moment they were reunited.

    • Pete's ex-wife claims the Phoenix Foundation was more important than his family, which can't be true since they'd been divorced before Pete worked for the foundation.
