  • Quotes

    • Pete: They're never going to find you in Montana.
      Jimmy: Montana? What the hell is in Montana? Buffalo chips and blizzards. Why not Miami?
      MacGyver: You like it warm, you get snow; you like the beach, you climb a mountain; you like baseball, you take up golf. Jimmy, I'm sorry but I'm serious, this is going to be a totally different life for you.

    • MacGyver: What, a friend can't help?
      Jimmy: Boy, you're really thickheaded, you know that?
      MacGyver: You know something? You're right.

    • Jimmy: In the old days I would have had a piece to even up the odds.
      MacGyver: That's not the only way.
      Jimmy: Yeah, and a couple of grenades, too.

    • Jimmy: That mop is not going to hold them long.
      MacGyver: Sometimes you just have to think positive.
      Jimmy: Okay, I'm positive we're dead.

    • Jimmy: This is it? This is where you live?
      MacGyver: Yeah. What's wrong with it?
      Jimmy: It's a houseboat. It's going to sink.
      MacGyver: I'll get you a life jacket.

    • Susan: It's no use, we're trapped.
      Jimmy: Nah, they were tailing us, they would have been here already. And MacGyver, you can't kill him with an axe.

    • Susan: Dad, no. Please.
      Jimmy: That—I guess that's the only thing I ever wanted to hear.

    • Jimmy: Not many guys would take a bullet for a friend.
      MacGyver: What do you say we don't make a habit of it... friend?

    • MacGyver: Growin' up fifteen hundred miles away from the ocean, you hardly ever get a really good sea breeze. So for a Minnesota boy like me, livin' on the water was kinda perfect.
