  • The cliched and predictable race in the finale keeps the episode stuck in marginal gear by this series' standards.

    • Reporter: Which means you have to beat Stone on Sunday and you have to win the race to take the championship. What makes you think you can do it? Visser: I don't know how to lose. MacGyver: How do you respond to that, Jeff? Jeff: I'll respond during the race.

    • MacGyver: Needs work. Engine, fresh rubber, new brakes, drive train, heats, everything. Pete: Well, actually, I've seen you do a lot more... with a lot less.

    • Pete: It's like you said. "Good ole clever MacGyver, he can fix anything." Maybe it's time he fixed himself.

    • MacGyver: Eight years ago in Europe, I was leading a race. A car clipped me from behind. I spun into another car. The driver was killed. Pete: It wasn't your fault. MacGyver: Pete, the car that clipped me—the driver was Hans Visser. Pete: Okay. So, now you'll know what to expect. You'll be ready for him.

    • Charlie: He told me that what he did for a living was dangerous, but... if you let yourself be afraid of dying, you're just gonna end up being afraid of living.
