  • Quotes

    • MacGyver: And to track an eagle, you've sort of got to become one. Get up there with 'em.

    • Darin: I just want to do things. She won't let me.
      MacGyver: Did you talk to her about it? Try?
      Darin: She doesn't listen.
      MacGyver: Well, if you don't talk, what's she going to listen to? Just a thought.

    • MacGyver: You know, the only arguments I ever had with my mother were about bed time. I finally had to let her stay up until ten.

    • MacGyver: Nature gives people and animal instincts that help them to survive. But up on the mountain, a part of nature was in danger of disappear, and instinct alone wasn't going to save it.

    • MacGyver: It took a little doing, but I figured out in a hurry the things a climber really needs: a pair of strong hands, a set of steady nerves, and a paid-up insurance policy.

    • MacGyver: They say drowning men see their lives flash before them. Falling men do, too. At least, this man did. And what I saw was about fifty years too short.

    • MacGyver: I personally don't know which is more dangerous. Falling off a wedge of ice down the side of a mountain, or falling into a thousand foot crevasse. And I really don't want to know.

    • MacGyver: I really wanted to get that eagle down to the cabin. But then I remembered there's only one kind of climber who tries to get down a mountain in the middle of a snowstorm—the kind you never hear from again.

    • MacGyver: I guess the way you look at the world depends on where you are. From up here it looked like a pretty nice place.
