  • Quotes

    • MacGyver: You are a nightmare, you know that. First you pull off a week of my life hunting up cheap pottery in every tourist trap from Tampico to Tijuana. Then you just about get us killed. I can't believe it.
      Jack: I can't believe you would dump my entire life's savings all over the Sierra Madre.
      MacGyver: I had to dump the cargo or we would have ended up scattered all over Mexico.
      Jack: Oh come on, Mac, it was just a little downdraft. We weren't that close to the trees. (MacGyver removes a tree branch from the landing gear) I had the situation completely under control.

    • Henderson: Let's talk.
      MacGyver: (as Dexter the nerd) That's a gun.
      Henderson: That's a car. Let's move it.

    • Jack: Okay, okay, you got me. Just no stabbing, or shooting... Nothing, nothing that hurts.
