Mrs. Wilson: You should leave that kind of work to me, Father Lafferty.
Father Lafferty: It's almost Christmas, Mrs. Wilson. I have to work on my Brownie points somehow.
Pete: Both Santa and Phoenix deliver on time.
Carol: I bet your mother always wanted you to be a doctor.
MacGyver: Well, not exactly. But she did always say I was good with my hands.
Carol: She was right.
MacGyver: You know, every time I see you in that collar, I gotta remind myself that you're the same kid that used to run me into the boards during hockey practice.
Father Lafferty: I remember it the other way around.
MacGyver: No way!
(Pete enters as Santa)
MacGyver: Now how'd you talk him into that?
Cynthia: Christmas dinner at my place.
MacGyver: But you were going to invite him anyway.
Cynthia: He didn't know that.
Pete: I think Santa's giving me a hernia for Christmas.
