  • Jack: It doesn't look like me, does it? MacGyver: "Him", Jack, not "it". "Him". And as a matter of fact, with a little mustache, a forked tongue, a twitching eye, there's a strong possibility.

  • MacGyver: So you pick up the phone. Who do you call? Jack: My telephone's been temporarily disconnected for the last year or so.

  • MacGyver: You've been in a coma all your life. Even when you are awake, you don't do anything right. I send you to the store for a few necessities, and you come back with chips and beer instead of talcum powder and diapers. Jack: They were sold out. In case you haven't heard, the yuppies are breedin' like guppies in these parts.

  • Jack: I'm not wild about havin' a baby dumped on us, but at least it was darn decent of her to leave some child support. MacGyver: What, ninety-five thousand dollars' worth? You said she was a waitress at the Officers' Club. Call me skeptical, but I don't think her tips were quite that good.

  • Pete: You guys are pathetic, you know that? Where did you learn to diaper a baby, in a fish market?

  • Pete: You building this for the kid or yourself? MacGyver: Little of both.

  • Jack: I think this little fellow could be my kid. Well, I mean, he loves to fly, he's got a great belch, and I can tell by the gleam in his eye he's gonna be dynamite with the ladies.

  • Pete: This little boy's going to need a family. Some family. MacGyver: Yeah, like uncles. Lots of uncles. Three. Three uncles. Jack: Yeah. Somebody to take him fishing. Throw him a football. Fly him to Panama...
