      MacGyver: Jack, everybody's trying to kill us.

    • MacGyver: I think it's working.
      Shadow: What if it doesn't hold?
      MacGyver: Then we go to Plan B.
      Jack: What's Plan B?
      MacGyver: Let's see how Plan A goes first.

    • Jack: You know, being dead made me realize something.
      MacGyver: Jack, you were only in the coffin for half an hour.

    • Jack: Let me handle this. I've got this spy talk thing down to a science.
      (Jack and MacGyver walk over to Messenger)

      Messenger: Yes, I have your package here.
      (Messenger hands over package and hastily leaves)
      MacGyver: That's it, that's spy talk? Some science.

    • MacGyver: This is crazy! We're both wanted for murder! The CIA think we killed Light, the police think we killed Light.
