    • Elaine: I don't suppose you know anything about delivering a baby? (MacGyver stares in horror) I didn't think so. MacGyver: I don't think right now is such a good time for that to be happening. Elaine: Tell that to this kid. MacGyver: (whispers to her stomach) Not now! Elaine: The contractions just stopped. MacGyver: Well-behaved kid.

    • Elaine: Can't wait to see how you'll get us out of this pit. MacGyver: Me, too.

    • Elaine: Are you ever wrong about anything? MacGyver: Never. Well, once. Maybe twice. Elaine: Once is all it takes to ruin your life.

    • MacGyver: Good thing about boats. Some of the stuff you find on them work just as well on land as they do on sea.

    • MacGyver: Do you know who's following us? Elaine: Friends of my husband. MacGyver: Any reason why? Elaine: I'm having a girl, and he wanted a son. Could you step on it, please?!
