  • Quotes

    • Harry: My grandson lives in California. Seems like an awfully long way off sometimes. Wanna see his picture?
      Boy: Sure. He's your grandson? Boy, he's old! (Harry scowls) Uh, I mean, you don't look that old.
      Harry: Well, I'll let you in on a little secret. I don't feel that old either.

    • MacGyver: Are you gonna take me to 'em, or do I have to hunt all over this boat on my own, huh?
      Harry: I suppose changing your mind is out of the question.
      MacGyver: Yes, sir.
      Harry: You always were stubborn. Just like your grandma.
      MacGyver: Yeah, well, she used to say I got that from you.

    • MacGyver: Harry, you're a genius.
      Harry: I am? I'm gettin' a little slow, Bud. What's this idea of mine?

    • MacGyver: Death's not so scary. I don't think it's the end of anything. It's more like just another step along the way.
      Pete: That's a nice thought.
      MacGyver: Yeah. Just somethin' my grampa taught me.

    • Harry: Love's not some bill to be paid on holidays and weekends, Bud. You want to let somebody know you care, you do it when they're not around.
