  • MacGyver: He's making the buy. Pete: "Making the buy"? MacGyver: Ehh, it's cop talk.

  • Zito: I think you'll find Mr. Cross to have anticipated most everything. MacGyver: That so? Zito: He's quite an unusual man, you see. It will be very difficult to stop him. To solve his deadly riddle, so to speak. His cunning is so complex, you have to be intellectually superior, exceptionally persistent, and possess an abundance of ingenuity to even get close to him. Are you all of these things, Mr. MacGyver? Yes, I know your name. Does that frighten you? MacGyver: Should it?

  • Zito: Back again, Mr. MacGyver? MacGyver: You're good. Zito: Yes, I know.

  • MacGyver: See the question is, why would you help somebody escape? Zito: I could have dozens of reasons. Humanity, for one. Did you think of that? MacGyver: Humanity? No, I don't think that's the reason. Zito: Oh? What makes you so sure? MacGyver: I've seen your file. You are a self-centered egotistical psychopath who has to have control of everything. Zito: Umm. Aren't we perceptive?

  • MacGyver: You okay? Murphy: Talk about being just in time. MacGyver: Oh, nonsense, we had a good 32 seconds to spare.

  • MacGyver: You helped Eric Cross escape. Zito: So. Now what? Are you going to have them take away my library card?

  • Zito: My, my, my, my, my. It's all so brilliant, isn't it? MacGyver: Thought you might say that.

  • Murphy: I got inside the artist's head and when it was over, I spent three months in therapy. I couldn't even read about him in the newspaper. Can you understand that? If I... deal with it any more, if I even look at Zito... I'll lose my mind.
