  • A very solidly crafted episode that takes views from Point A to Point B in the most shocking and unorthodox way.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (5)

    • MacGyver: Quite a painting, huh? Laura: Peter Paul Rubens. The hills north of Antwerp. About 1625. MacGyver: 1625? I wouldn't give you $15 for it. Sorry. Laura: I know where you can get a great deal on a matador painting. On black velvet. MacGyver: Now you're talking art.

    • Laura: You know, Rubens painted a lot of Antwerp landscapes, Mr. Bolinski. Are you sure this one is yours? Sam: Listen, doctor, this painting used to hang over our fireplace. As a boy, I would stare into it and wonder what was behind that hill, what was beyond those trees. I grew up in this painting, Dr. Sand. It is part of me.

    • Laura: Those are historic documents. Madame Brandenburg: And now they're historic ashes.

    • MacGyver: Hi, Pete. Pete: MacGyver, you look terrific. You should wear tux more often. MacGyver: Strictly camouflage. As long as I have to be here I might as well blend in.

    • Sam: Changing your name, you can do. But changing who you are... this you can never do.
