  • Trivia

    • Roger Cross (Curtis) and William Devane (Heller) do not appear in this episode.

    • It is interesting to note that when (Vice) President Logan is sworn in he does not say "So help me God" at the end of the oath of office. It has been tradition (not official) that every president after George Washington say it after being sworn into office.

    • During the previouslies when Air Force One is hit, you hear a voice on a radio saying, "Air Force One has been fired on!" This dialogue did not appear in the previous episode.

    • When Jack says he's 20 minutes away from the crash site, the closed captioning says "30 minutes."

  • Quotes

    • Henchman: We've lost the signal.
      Marwan: How is that possible?
      Henchman: I don't know. Maybe it was damaged on impact.
      Marwan: And it just happens to malfunction now that we're getting closer?

    • Tony: Marwan gave us the football device for his freedom?
      Jack: Yeah, that doesn't sound right to me either.

  • Notes

    • Jason mentions wanting to give Kelly a "romantic weekend in the desert," which means that Day 4 starts on either a Friday or Saturday. However, it is more likely to be a Saturday as Behrooz and Debbie both weren't at school.

    • Jack gives Jason his direct cell number (310-597-3781.) This number is the same one that appeared on Debbie's caller ID in episode #77. It leads to the 24 "Fan Phone" that callers can use to talk to the cast and crew on the set.

    • If you watch the upper-left corner of the video feed coming from Air Force One, you will see the name Cassar. Jon Cassar is Co-Executive Producer, and directed this episode.

    • Jude Ciccolella ("Mike Novick") is back after being gone for 40 episodes. He was last seen in the second season finale (episode 48). He is the actor with the third-longest break between appearances. The second being Mia Kirshner ("Mandy") with 46 episodes and first being Eric Balfour ("Milo Pressman") with 104 episodes
