  • As pumped as I was to discover had a "lost episode" featuring Jack Dalton and set on the other side of the globe, I was a little disappointed by this one.

    • Baba: (on MacGyver) It is written, another stranger will follow the first. A resourceful man. He is drawn to this abomination and to our destiny. He will come from the sky, out of the West.

    • MacGyver: You're okay! Jack: You came for me. MacGyver: Thank God you're all right. Jack: Yeah, yeah. MacGyver: Nothing's broken. Jack: No. I'm fine. MacGyver: Oh great. Now I can break your neck!

    • MacGyver: What I can't figure is how you conned Pete and the entire Phoenix board into underwriting this scheme of yours. Jack: "Scheme?" Who said it was a scheme? MacGyver: I did. Just now. Didn't you hear me?

    • Jack: This is a mystical place. You got to go with the flow. MacGyver: Well for me, the flow is that way.

    • Mukti: Something wrong, MacGyver? MacGyver: Oh, not yet. But I can feel it coming.
