    • Ingers: Good evening, your Excellency, it's bound and gag time. Let's show the minister to his new quarters, shall we?

    • MacGyver: Let's take a look at his operations agenda. You got a password?
      Pete: Yeah. "Agenda".

    • Nikki: MacGyver was right about you.
      Webber: Well, if you value his opinion so much, maybe I can bury you side by side, my dear.

    • MacGyver: You know, you are sounding more like a bureaucrat every day.
      Nikki: I am one, damn it. Born and bred.
      MacGyver: Congratulations.
      Nikki: Look, MacGyver, I know enough to know when I'm getting the runaround. Now, why won't you deal with Matt Webber?

    • MacGyver: What are you going to do?
      Pete: Oh, well... I'm going to carry on; what do you think? Listen, I've got plenty to do. I've got more things to do than I'll ever get done.
      MacGyver: Like what?
      Pete: Oh, like, uh... write my book. Work on my boat. Go fishing.
      MacGyver: You hate fishing.

    • Ed: After spending our youth helping the DSX wage a Cold War, isn't it nice to be older, wiser, and part of the peace process?
      Pete: Yes, it is. Well, for me, that's what the Phoenix Foundation is all about.

    • MacGyver: Mankind is in the habit of creating its own monsters. And fortunately, once in a while, it also gets the chance to destroy them.

    • Matt Webber: (sarcastically) Greetings, Amunde. Welcome to This Is Your Life.
