    • Pete: Boy, you don't know how glad I am to see you.
      MacGyver: Gee, thanks. You know how much I love conventions.

    • MacGyver: Who made this mess?
      Pete: Why? Is it terrible? (MacGyver holds up the mess he's made) Well, I tried to fix it myself. I was desperate.

    • Pete: You believe that? She can't be more than 16.
      MacGyver: Yeah. Going on 40.

    • Jennifer: Look, I'm just doing this for my boyfriend.
      MacGyver: Yeah, right.
      Jennifer: He needs the money to get new mags for his car.
      MacGyver: It sounds like he loves his car.
      Jennifer: He loves me. Sometimes you love somebody, you do things you wouldn't normally do.
      MacGyver: That's not a boyfriend, that's a pimp.

    • Bag Lady: Back off, or I mace the face!
      MacGyver: That's not mace. That's hairspray.
      Bag Lady: Whatever.

    • MacGyver: How you fixed for cash?
      Bag Lady: Fine. I'm the heir to the Rockefeller fortune.
      MacGyver: Ah, well, then I guess you wouldn't be interested in an extra... $20?
      Bag Lady: Well...
      MacGyver: In case the inheritance doesn't come in right away.

    • Jennifer: Hi.
      Pete: Hi, there.

      Jennifer: Sure, let's go for it.
