    • Pete: They're never going to find you in Montana. Jimmy: Montana? What the hell is in Montana? Buffalo chips and blizzards. Why not Miami? MacGyver: You like it warm, you get snow; you like the beach, you climb a mountain; you like baseball, you take up golf. Jimmy, I'm sorry but I'm serious, this is going to be a totally different life for you.

    • MacGyver: What, a friend can't help? Jimmy: Boy, you're really thickheaded, you know that? MacGyver: You know something? You're right.

    • Jimmy: In the old days I would have had a piece to even up the odds. MacGyver: That's not the only way. Jimmy: Yeah, and a couple of grenades, too.

    • Jimmy: That mop is not going to hold them long. MacGyver: Sometimes you just have to think positive. Jimmy: Okay, I'm positive we're dead.

    • Jimmy: This is it? This is where you live? MacGyver: Yeah. What's wrong with it? Jimmy: It's a houseboat. It's going to sink. MacGyver: I'll get you a life jacket.
