Episode Summary

EDIT
The Mission (1)
AIRED:

Harm and Mac return to the aircraft carrier USS Seahawk ("A New Life" & "Crossing the Line", among others) to brief the JAG officers on the new Rules of Engagement, following the escape of Taliban fighters as a result of a JAG officer's hesitation to determine if the target was legitimate.

While Harm is aboard the ship, the captain asks him to fly a bombing mission into Afghanistan. However, Harm's excitement changes to concern when his plane sustains critical damage from enemy fire.

Meanwhile, a jealous Lt. Singer sabotages Bud's case when she hears of his imminent promotion.

  • NO Skates!!!

    7.0
    While this episode is typical JAG--F-14 plus lawyer work--the absence of Harm's real and proper RIO, Skates adversely reduced the whole plot to nothing. The substitute RIO was useless.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Lt. Jorgenson: (to Harm) Things HAPPEN when you're around.

    • Harriet: It's a new assignment, it's not hard time at Leavenworth.
      Bud: Yeah, well, it feels like it.

    • Harm: You know what this means?
      Mac: A long flight with a sudden stop that jars the brain?
      Harm: Yeah, but then we'll be back on a carrier at war.
      Mac: With the 24-hour roar of jets, the wham of the catapult, and the constant stink of exhaust from aviation fuel.
      Harm: Yeah, I love it.

    • Harm (about his service record): There are some things in there that need explaining, sir.
      Captain Johnson: You have a gift for understatement.

    • (Harm is on the flight deck when Mac approaches)
      Harm: How'd you know I was here?
      Mac: Where else would you be on a carrier during ops?
      Harm: In the front seat of an F-14?

    • Harm: Civilian casualties are inevitable. Do you have a problem with that, Commander?
      Officer: Yes, sir.
      Mac: We all do, Commander. But we are a nation at war. It's a risk we have to take.

    • (On the USS Seahawk)
      Mac: Well, that explains your green eyes.
      Harm: What?
      Mac: Watching younger men do what you love best.
      Harm: Don't count me out yet.

    • (The pilot is told to verify that his targets are Al Qaeda members)
      Hawker Pilot: What do you want me to do, fly down and check their IDs?

  • NOTES (4)

    • International Episode Titles:
      Czech Republic: Bojovy ukol (Combat Mission)

    • Harm mentions working with Bobbi Latham's staff to investigate allegations that sarin gas was used on American troops during the Gulf War (it turned out to be a fabricated ZNN report). This happened in the episode "Mr. Rabb Goes To Washington".

    • Harm mentions his former RIO, Elizabeth "Skates" Hawkes. Mac and Harm describe how Harm saved Skates' life, defended her when she was wrongly accused, and was saved from hypothermia by her after they both got dumped in the ocean. These events happened during the episodes "Crossing The Line", "Mishap", and "Adrift (2)", respectively.

    • The hull number for the USS Seahawk, CVN-65, actually belongs in real-life to the USS Enterprise. Launched in September, 1960 & commissioned on 25 November, 1961 it was the worlds first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. This is the 8th Navy ship commissioned as the Enterprise.
