  • Quotes

    • Ellen: What? Look at your face. Have I changed that much?
      MacGyver: Well, just for the better.
      Ellen: Good answer.

    • Nikolai: What they told us about American before glasnost, about how all of you are selfish monsters, is totally bogus.
      MacGyver: Well, I guess dudes are dudes all over the world.

    • MacGyver: Are you okay?
      Nikolai: Is that American sense of humor? Sure, I'm not bad, for a guy who's going to be toast.

    • Ellen: So tell me what you do at the Phoenix Foundation.
      MacGyver: Oh, I'm kind of a troubleshooter, I guess. They ask me to go somewhere, I do what I can to help.
      Ellen: MacGyver, I have never know anyone who could make such a mystery of everything.
      MacGyver: No, no, I'm not trying to be mysterious about it, it's just that what I do is tough to explain.

    • MacGyver: Nikolai, do you have any idea what's in those [hot dogs]?
      Nikolai: No.
      MacGyver: Neither does anyone else.
