  • Quotes (9)

    • MacGyver: And to track an eagle, you've sort of got to become one. Get up there with 'em.

    • Darin: I just want to do things. She won't let me. MacGyver: Did you talk to her about it? Try? Darin: She doesn't listen. MacGyver: Well, if you don't talk, what's she going to listen to? Just a thought.

    • MacGyver: You know, the only arguments I ever had with my mother were about bed time. I finally had to let her stay up until ten.

    • MacGyver: Nature gives people and animal instincts that help them to survive. But up on the mountain, a part of nature was in danger of disappear, and instinct alone wasn't going to save it.

    • MacGyver: It took a little doing, but I figured out in a hurry the things a climber really needs: a pair of strong hands, a set of steady nerves, and a paid-up insurance policy.
