  • Quotes (8)

    • Starkoss: You're a serious man, you're an intellectual man, you're a man of the mind. Why feel such guilt? It's alright. She understands. Your mother, she forgives you. MacGyver: What? Starkoss: It's alright. She understands you could not go to the funeral. She forgives you, you do not forgive yourself. But she forgives you. MacGyver: What kind of dossier do you people have me?

    • Nikki: [Starkoss] knew! He knew about my feet. I mean, I've got blisters; I didn't tell him that. MacGyver: Nikki, you're wearing oversized boots. Blisters are a given. Nikki: He knew you were carrying explosives. MacGyver: He knew I came here to destroy the pieces of the plane when I found them. Obviously I'm not going to truck them off the mountain in my backpack.

    • Nikki: Well, I suppose your Swiss miss could have done better. MacGyver: Heidi happens to be extremely competent, intelligent, and articulate. Nikki: Not to mention a great body. MacGyver: That's not her fault!

    • MacGyver: Look, I said, "nothing personal," but those mountains are rugged, and I don't want to be saddled— Nikki: You don't want to be stuck dragging a woman around. MacGyver: Well, I wouldn't have put it quite like that.

    • MacGyver: One thing you gotta know when you're ballooning is how to land. Simply put, you just cut the heat, and let gravity do the rest.
