  • Nothing to necessarily complain about, but a relatively routine episode.

    • Bailiff: Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? Bird Lady: I never lie. Judge: Put her answer down as "yes".

    • Jake Baron: Tell me, MacGyver, is she responsible for the gross miscarriage of justice that occurred here today, or does the DA deserve to share some of the blame? MacGyver: Man... No, actually, I think you're to blame. Jake Baron: I beg your pardon? MacGyver: People like you rush to judgment or make snap accusations before you get all the facts. Who gets hurt doesn't seem to matter to you people as long as you get a few more rating points. Jake Baron: Sounds like you're against a free and democratic press. MacGyver: No, sir. Just people who abuse it. Like you, Mr. Baron. Jake Baron: Well, all I can say is I'm glad the rest of America doesn't think like you. MacGyver: You never know.

    • MacGyver: What is it with you people? Why are you so afraid of going after the truth?
