  • Quotes (5)

    • MacGyver: Where're the boys? Mama Colton: Well, Frank and Jesse got called on a big-job bail case. Right in the middle of the family reunion. And my mother won't let Billy come just now. Do you know, he had nerve enough to tell her he liked her cooking better than mine? MacGyver: Ouch.

    • MacGyver: So you're a baseball fan. Wendy: I'm not a fan, I'm a product. MacGyver: Product? Wendy: I love baseball and hate anything that ruins it.

    • Novus: She's brought some real bozos around here. Wendy: Sorry, MacGyver, subtlety's not a Reilly family trait. Novus: I guess my daughter's definitely proof of that.

    • Mama Colton: MacGyver, you're just like my boys. Get Mama to do the networking.

    • Wendy: Hey, big guy, I have a feeling you and I could wreck some havoc together. I'm Wendy. MacGyver: MacGyver, and I don't have time to wreck havoc right now.
