The sign at the Austrian border says " ... GEPACK UND DOCUMENTEN WERDEN CONTROLLIERT". Normally, we can speak and spell German even in the far north of the country. It is " ... GEPAECK UND DOKUMENTE WERDEN KONTROLLIERT". I think this shows that the scene was shot in an English-speaking country, because they don't have our letter (A with 2 dots on top), and that the producers didn't take foreign locations and languages too seriously.

I always get confused by the language and accent of the car driver who takes Mac and the girl past the border. At first I had the impression, that he had a Viennese (German) accent. Then he spoke Chech or Slovakian well, but later on he talked German again. hmm.bmp

Berni, maybe it was done by some ex-german-speaker living in USA (or an offspring)?
As to the "gepack", maybe they wrote it this way, just without umlaut-dots, like for example El Nino instead of El Nio.

As I am Polish i was listening to the Czech language (it's different but similiar, like, i don't know, German to Dutch). The writings seemed ok, but the hospital was a little too nice and well equipped as for the one in comunism block country. And this small Citroen car of theirs was a little fake, coz in these days, there were very few western (French) cars on our roads, even old.

For my "nit pick" candidate i would propose the scene near the ending, in the zoo, where Mac jumps on the bad guy from the little bridge. I mean the "floorer" hit - it was obviously dummy, by the face of this Zorkin.

when the 2 kgb agents arrive during the alarm the nurse realizes she doesnt have her keys they go running into the hall full of smoke where we just saw mag find dubcheck in the 3rd door. after a cut to mac in the room with dubcheck we see the kgb agents run around a corner that is back by the nurses staion with clean air. i think this scene should have preceded the one with the nurse and probably got swapped during editing.

Five hundred thousand dollars was the paycheck for this assignment. Diana said they would split it fifty-fifty which means 250.000 dollars for the both of them. Though Mac said he didn't had any interest in the money. At the end of the episode Diana looks at her share of the money. She said it was over 200.000 dollars. So I think we can assume it was the 250.000 dollars she was supposed to get. When Dubcek comes in he said someone donated 200.000 dollars for his cause. But unless I miss my guess the half of half a million dollars is a quarter of a million dollars. So... did Mac keep 50.000 dollars for himself or not? He did say something about any thing extra is extra. And he did say he was going to buy a new roll of ductape. Must be a very expensive roll than.

Oh and when Viera betrays Dubcek, Dubceks says MacGyver, Pete and Diana where there too, except he mispronounces Diana's name and says: Diane.

MacGyver probably wanted to give some of the money to other charities he supports, like the challengers club for example.

Good point.

Also what I forgot to post last time: Why would Diana actually bother to come back to the United States if she took the pictures of Dubcek being arrested? She makes the pictures, send them to Phoenix, travel all the way back to America to just meet MacGyver and take the next plane back to Chzechoslovakia? Don't you think she would be very jetlagged? Why couldn't Mac just meet her there?
