  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (6)

    • MacGyver: Ah, Siberia. Not known for its tourist trade or over-population. That's exactly why it's such a popular place for political prisoners. And nuclear facilities.

    • Yuri: You can't get me through the gates without paper. They'll stop us. They'll shoot! MacGyver: Who said anything about going through?

    • MacGyver: Penny, do you have any relatives or friends? Penny: I have you.

    • Yuri: As Patrick Henry once said, "Give me liberty, or give me death." Lyle: I vote for death.

    • Penny: I'm an actress; it's my job to study people.

    • Yuri's comment, "You and me, it's like Butch and Sundance," refers to George Roy Hill's 1969 Western, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The movie is loosely based on historical fact and chronicles the final days of the two bank and train robbers.
