    • Jonathan: First a witness, now a hostage. You are a very able man, Mr. Thornton.

    • Pete: Listen, that man was skiing like he owned the whole darn mountain. MacGyver: Pete! That man does own "the whole darn mountain." Pete: Well, that's still no excuse for him to swing on me.

    • Lt. Col Chambers: Do you realize you've just destroyed a multi-million dollar piece of top-secret military hardware? MacGyver: Sorry.

    • MacGyver: It's occurred to me that some friendships are like a good game of hockey. The right balance of teamwork and smooth skating generally adds up to a winning combination.
