  • good episode...

    By Fwirrel, May 06, 2008

  • An epic production is largely wasted on a ho-hum script.

  • One of the best season 5 episodes....

  • Quotes (9)

    • Pete: I told the board you would do it. I gave them my word. I made a commitment. MacGyver: You committed me! Without asking me, without giving me a chance to say yes or no. Now, come on, Pete, look at me! I'm a hurtin' guy, I'm beat up. I need a month's worth of sleep... and I need a haircut!

    • Pete: Well what am I going to tell the board? MacGyver: Tell them you made a big mistake. Pete: Mistake, what mistake? MacGyver: You forgot to ask me!

    • MacGyver: Mister...? Jack: Dalton. Andrew Jackson Dalton. No relation to the Dalton Gang. Call me Jack. MacGyver: MacGyver. Penny: First or last? MacGyver: Yep.

    • MacGyver: You think the marshal in Serenity will stand up to Murdoc? Pete: Wyatt? He's about as tough as a bucket of warm spit. Nobody in town's going to help us. They're all scared of Murdoc. MacGyver: That's reasonable. So am I.

    • Pete: (at Colton's grave) I'm responsible; can we talk? MacGyver: Your timing's a bit irregular. (walks away)

    Notes (2)

    • The German episode title is "Im Wilden Westen", meaning "In the Wild West". The Finnish episode title is "Rauhan tyyssija", meaning "Peaceful Retreat". The Italian episode title is "Sogno o realtà", meaning "Dream or Reality".

    • The opening guest and crew credits use a different font. The end credits are in the regular font but a more Western-like version of the MacGyver theme tune is played.
