  • I Work Alone: Sunspot doesn't want help from any of the other characters. He later learns his lesson though.

  • Scaling the Summit: Jet and the gang join Sunspot on his expedition to climb to the top of Mt. Sharp.
  • Shout-Out: The episode title is a reference to the Marvin Gaye song "Ain't No Mountain High Enough".
