  • Quotes

    • Max: It might be difficult.
      Jack: Money's no object.
      Pete: Jack!
      Max: In that case, two of them have already checked out of their hotels.
      Pete: You didn't tell me that.
      Max: You didn't mention that money was no object.

    • Jack: Here they come. I anticipate champagne, flashbulbs, and with any luck, local beauty queens panting after my highly-trained pilot's body.

    • Jack: Welcome home!
      MacGyver: No.
      Jack: Ah, the man's overcome with emotion.
      MacGyver: No, just overcome.

    • Pete: We've got to sneak in.
      Jack: Disguised as what, Mother Teresa and a leper?

    • Pete: Jack, having you as a friend is a little bit like owning a pet disease.
      Jack: Why, Pete, old pal, are you trying to hint you're upset?

    • MacGyver: Maybe we should consider a different way out.
      Leann: That door is steel. It is cross-braced and double-locked.
      MacGyver: I never said it was going to be easy.

    • Leann: I believe in honesty. At least, when I'm contemplating my own death.

    • MacGyver: Looks like at least two armed guards on duty.
      Jack: Okay... so I guess knockin' on the front door is out.

    • MacGyver: We're officially crooks until we square with the police. Which means we should get a line on those jewels.
      Jack: MacGyver, we're wanted criminals; we just broke out of a torture chamber by slugging an inspector of police and the head of security for the richest woman in the universe.
      MacGyver: We've got no choice. Either we're innocent—or we're dead.

    • MacGyver: My grandfather used to say, "if you're afraid of the answer, don't ask the question."

    • Elena: You would probably give them to a campaign for hunger.
      MacGyver: Yeah.
      Elena: And save a few lives for what, six months, a year? Until they breed more starving children and the money runs out, and then what?
      MacGyver: Then you'd have bought another year. You can do a lot in a year.

    • Elena: Dalton told me about you. Apparently you would rather give $32 million to medial research.
      MacGyver: Yeah... but then that's probably why you own the plane, and I'm just flying it.

    • Jack: The plane's there. We're signed up.
      MacGyver: What about her flight crew?
      Jack: Lost. Strayed. Stolen. Who cares?

    • Jack: I just taped over some old movie.
      MacGyver: My classic western collection!

    • MacGyver: Jack, the answer is no: no rescue missions, no buried treasure, no sunken gold, no oil wells. No!

    • MacGyver: Three and a half weeks, two continents, five countries, one island, about nine thousand miles, and I was wasted. Right now, I was looking forward to miles and miles of nothing happening—except sleep.
