  • Quotes

    • Pete: Each time a different face, name, ID.
      MacGyver: Guy sounds kind of nervous.

    • MacGyver: I was told you were coming, and problems are my specialty.
      Piedra: That's funny. Mine too.

    • MacGyver: What took you so long?
      Pete: Well, I wanted to see who was gonna win.
      MacGyver: I had him right where I wanted him.

    • Terry: What scares me is, I almost killed you.
      MacGyver: Nah, Terry, if you were that kind of person, you'd have pulled the trigger on me.
      Terry: No, you don't understand. I wanted to hear him beg. I wanted to watch his face as he died.

    • Terry: Don't you trust me?
      MacGyver: I don't trust anybody.

    • MacGyver: Name's MacGyver. I'm on a government assignment taking Piedra's place, he's in custody. Terry, think about it for a second. If I was Piedra, you'd be dead by now wouldn't ya? Piedra is in a cell, believe me he's gone. All wrapped up and stashed away some place, he's history. It's over.

    • MacGyver: We all are going to die. The trick is not to rush it.

    • Pete: You all right?
      MacGyver: Yeah.
      Pete: What happened?
      MacGyver: The wages of sin, I think.

    • Pete: And Piedra's dead, fair enough.
      MacGyver: Yeah, almost.
      Pete: What does that mean?
      MacGyver: Well, it's just that I'll never know for sure.
      Pete: Ohhh.
      Terry: Know what?
      Pete: (laughs) Whether or not he could of taken him.
