Trivia: The coordinates for the gold stash (62° 41' 19" N, 164° 19' 38" W) pinpoint an area about 20 miles from the coast of the Bering Sea next to the Yukon River in Alaska. It is entirely possible that such a route would be used flying from Russia to the U.S.
Blood disappears off a prop booby-trap that had previously been shown to have blood on it.
Natalia: MacGyver, he's going to kill us anyway. If I can't bring this gold to my people, I believe the next best thing is to just step off and take him with us. What do you think?
MacGyver: I think you shouldn't go Russian on me just yet.
Natalia: What do you mean, "Russian"?
MacGyver: You know, heroic, fatalistic. Russian.
Natalia: Oh, that Russian.
MacGyver: Well, he lived his life as a hero. Seems he died the same way.
Natalia: Why, MacGyver, you're beginning to sound Russian.
MacGyver: What do you mean, Russian?
Natalia: Poetic, philosophical. Russian.
Natalia: (to MacGyver) That is what I've always admired about you—the way you never let go of something worthwhile.
