    • MacGyver: Now, give me your wallet.
      Pinky: What are you going to do, rob me or save me?
      MacGyver: Just give me the wallet!

    • Neil: (watching MacGyver escape a death trap) Whoa! Oh whoa! This dude is like so fully awesome.
      Karl: Don't start a fan club just yet, Neil.

    • MacGyver: Now's not the time to panic, Pinky.
      Pinky: Oh, you kidding? Now's the perfect time to panic.

    • Karl: (setting a trap for MacGyver and Pinky) No one will ever know that you drowned on my father's old lot.
      Neil: I like it.
      Karl: Gee, that means the world to me, Neil.

    • Neil: Hey, what are you going to do with your share of the film profits?
      Karl: I don't know. Maybe start a special effects house.
      Neil: I hope it comes out better than the stunts you rigged here.
      Karl: I will not be laughed at by a man whose chief ambition in life is to produce slasher films.
      Neil: Chill out, dude. You're losing your sense of humor.

    • Pinky: MacGyver, I gotta stop. One of these days I'm going to tell you how old I am, and it's going to scare you to death.

    • MacGyver: You did it, Pinky!
      Pinky: No, it wasn't me. Nuh-uh. It was you and me. As a team, a great team, that's what it was. It was, well it was like Laurel and Hardy. Or the Marx Brothers. Or Abbott & Costello. Oh yeah, they're here, they're all here. Can't you hear them? It's movie magic. Oh god, I love this business.
