    • MacGyver: Are you familiar with the history of the Chinese in this country?
      Luke: Somewhat, I know they first came here as laborers.
      MacGyver: Yeah, they helped build the railroad. They were poorly paid and badly treated. And every once in a while, a bunch of vigilantes would try to show them who's boss.

    • Raymond: He will be as stubborn as his grandfather.
      Alasdair: If he is, he'll be just as dead.

    • Luke: In my grandfather's country, they say a man should not live under the same sky as his father's murderers.

    • Luke: (wearing a suit) So, what do you think?
      Pete: It looks perfect.
      MacGyver: Well, I don't know if "perfect"'s quite the word for it.
      Pete: What's wrong with it?
      MacGyver: He's wearing a tie.
      Pete: Well, what's wrong with a tie?
      MacGyver: It's a tie.

    • Luke: I've already learned so much. Especially from you, MacGyver.
      MacGyver: Yeah? What have you learned?
      Luke: I've learned... that I've got a lot to learn.

    • Luke: How do you know so much, MacGyver?
      MacGyver: Tell you what, Luke. I'll make a deal with you: I'll teach you about the principles of sonar, you teach me about jher-jun.

    • MacGyver: Now some men have hurt him. There's s reason to believe they may try to hurt you as well.
      Luke: But you came to get me, to take me to him.
      MacGyver: I came here to give you a choice.

    • Pete: A cartel is a little bit like a shadow government; it's very hard to tell who's running it.

    • Mr. Chung: Thank you, Raymond. But the vice-president of the company doesn't have to bring me tea, you know.
      Raymond: No, but a friend can.
