    • Jack: Call it and get it. He's your friend, he looks the other way. You borrow the Dragon as bait to get Lisa and Kossov out, up up and away.
      MacGyver: How?
      Jack: You'll come up with something. That's what you're good at.

    • MacGyver: Jack, doesn't this remind you of the time you were climbing through that Mayan pyramid full of snakes and spiders?
      Jack: Did I tell you about that?
      MacGyver: In great detail.
      Jack: Well, actually, I didn't exactly participate in that crawl. But I saw the movie.
      MacGyver: That's a comfort.

    • Lisa: You were both unbelievable.
      Jack: Ah, shucks, ma'am, you're just saying that because it's true.

    • Pete: MacGyver, you're a genius.
      Jack: That's a matter of opinion.

    • Jack: Houdini was an amateur.

    • Lisa: I was ordered to attract you, yes. It was my job. But you must know, MacGyver. It was not all lies. There were real feelings, too.
      MacGyver: I wish I could believe that.

    • Lisa: There's a great deal I want to tell you.
      MacGyver: Why bother?

    • Lisa: I will take care of MacGyver.
      Kossov: Why?
      MacGyver: Good question.
      Lisa: In case you have forgotten, Major, we are not really married. This is my business.

    • Jack: You almost got killed for this thing. Worse, I almost got killed!

    • Racoubian: But Nicholai attempted to escape. A fatal mistake.
      MacGyver: Are you telling me he's dead?
      Racoubian: Very.

    • MacGyver: Arnold Palmer's birthday. Pete's hero.
      Jack: How in God's name can you know Arnold Palmer's birthday?!
      MacGyver: Doesn't everyone?

    • Jack: (talking with a flashlight in his mouth) Haw muff fuffa?
      MacGyver: You studyin' Russian?

    • Jack: Wouldn't it have been easier just to check in?
      MacGyver: Yeah, but not half as much fun.

    • MacGyver: We have to steal the dragon.
      Jack: What you mean, "we", Kemo sabe?

    • Jack: Why can't you just knock or say hello like everybody else?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Jack's comment, "Well, this is another fine mess you've gotten me into," rendered in an English accent, is a take on Norvelle "Oliver" Hardy, a heavyset American comedy actor sporting a black derby and mustache who is best known for starring with Stan Laurel in dozens of movies from 1927 through 1951. Hardy typically delivers the line after his partner Stan has gotten them both into some kind of trouble.
