Episode Notes
This is the first episode in production order to introduce team leader Jim Phelps, the first new regular character to be introduced since the series premiere. As typical for almost all new characters introduced on the show, Phelps comes with no fanfare or introduction.

Joseph Sorokin received an Emmy nomination for Sound Editing for this episode.

Episode Goofs
in the tape briefing, the tape voice refers to the "Wilsons and Cardels." What it means is the "Stoners and Cardels," not Wilson Cardel.
