  • Trivia

    • Goof: Air Force One is shown landing in Orange County, but the only commercial airport in Orange County, California is John Wayne Airport, whose runways can not accommodate Boeing 747s (such as Air Force One). Presidents visiting Orange County normally land at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the nearest airport capable of handling a 747.

    • It is revealed that President Mackenzie's code name is "Victory".

    • Amy Calloway takes a copy of the Gettysburg Address from the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House.

  • Quotes

    • Templeton: You saved us from having to take a commercial flight.

    • Mac: So let me understand this - we have half the Secret Service at the airport, FBI, SWAT teams, we have a spy satellite that can read a license plate from space, and my major source of information is cable news? What if the Chinese invade? Am I going to hear it first on talk radio?

    • Templeton: One building can not contain the greatness of a man.
      Mac: Or Woman.

    • Templeton: My question is...why is the guy in the fuel truck still alive? They don't have a clean shot? Or is she afraid to give the order?

    • Mackenzie: Everyone off the plane?
      Pete: Yes, ma'am.
      Mackenzie: Give him five minutes, and then...take your first clear shot.

    • Kate Allen: It's been two hundred years since the White House burned down. Like to keep the streak alive.

    • Kate Allen: (To Rebecca who is complaining of being bored) Having your own movie theatre and bowling alley must be such a drag.

  • Notes

    • Music : Hard Fi - Hard to beat

    • Goof: In the shot of the President's motorcade on the highway, just after leaving the airport, the shot has been flipped left-to-right. All the license plates are backwards, and the steering wheels are on the right side of the vehicle instead of the left.
