    • Pete: Great place to start day one of your vacation.
      MacGyver: Vacation nothing! This is a Phoenix-sponsored save-the-wilderness mapping expedition, and don't you forget it.

    • Pete: MacGyver, take care.
      MacGyver: I usually do.

    • MacGyver: This untracked wilderness reminded me of my Minnesota backwoods, full of the beauty of old Indian legends. I was only too happy to be a part of the Phoenix Foundation's effort to map it out and make it a National Preserve, and to be honest, it was just nice being here.

    • Joanna: It looks like your man MacGyver has some catching up to do.
      Pete: Don't worry. In a little while they'll be chasing his tail.
      Joanna: Sure have a lot of faith in this guy. What makes him so special?
      Pete: You know, I've known him for eight years now and I've never quite been able to put my finger on it. He just always comes through, no matter what.

    • MacGyver: One of my biggest problems is I can never leave a puzzle alone, and this ship sure qualified.

    • Karin: I'm sorry I was so afraid.
      MacGyver: You kidding? Did you see me jump off that ship? I hit the water running.
      Karin: Yes, but you took me with you.
      MacGyver: I needed company.

    • MacGyver: Well, I don't believe in ghosts. I believe in explanations. Reality is strange enough.

    • Joanna: You didn't really fall for that guy in the monkey suit, did you?
      MacGyver: Well, I don't know. What with all the evidence piling up over the years: sightings, footprints, stuff like that... Yeah, the guy had me going for a while.
      Joanna: Are you kidding? Big Foot?
      MacGyver: Why not? The legend has got to start someplace.
