  • Quotes

    • Wrightman: This is no longer your land. The government took it through eminent domain. You were paid. You were paid a fair price.
      Mr. Miller: We returned the money.

    • Elizabeth: Which one is it?
      MacGyver: The long cylindrical one there.
      Elizabeth: Is this it?
      MacGyver: Yep. It's perfect. We'll make a greasy monkey out of you yet.
      Elizabeth: "Grease monkey"?
      MacGyver: Grease monkey. It's a joke. (the Amish stare) A very small, bad joke.

    • Wrightman: I don't quite know what to say. The man who destroyed your derrick is in jail. I'll pay for the damage.
      John: First you pay me for land that I do not wish to sell. Now you want to pay me for a drilling derrick which you're going to tear down anyway. I do not understand you, sir, and I do not want your money.

    • Wrightman: Have you ever done anything like this before?
      MacGyver: Do you want the truth?
      Wrightman: No.

    • Christy: Are you scared?
      Jacob: No.
      Christy: So am I.

    • Wrightman: What do you know about this?
      Stevens: What, you gonna listen to him?!
      Wrightman: You and me are the only ones with a key to that shack.

    • Stevens: You got no proof we had anything to do with it. Half the town wants those Amish out of there.
      MacGyver: Yeah, well, half the town doesn't have access to dynamite.

    • Elizabeth: He will be one of us again… someday.
      MacGyver: How long does that take?
      Elizabeth: A year. Perhaps two.
      MacGyver: That's an awful long time to be alone. Must be kinda tough on his family.
      Elizabeth: It is. William is my brother.

    • Elizabeth: He is hard on the outside, but he has a good heart.
      MacGyver: He kind of reminds me of Mr. Simpson. . . . Ah, it's a teacher I had in the third grade. He kept makin' me stand in the corner.
      Elizabeth: And did you deserve this?
      MacGyver: Most of the time.

    • MacGyver: What's the matter?
      Elizabeth: Nothing. It is breakfast time.
      MacGyver: It's the middle of the night.
      Elizabeth: This is a farm. We start early.

    • Stevens: Now they got a cripple to fight their battles for 'em.
      MacGyver: Yeah, well, if you'd go after a little boy with an ax, then I'm probably just about your speed.

    • Elizabeth: Do you remember what happened?
      MacGyver: My Jeep went over a cliff… I died… and went to Thanksgiving?
      Elizabeth: You… you did go over a cliff, but you did not die. Our clothing is Amish.
      MacGyver: Ah, that's a relief.

    • MacGyver: There's just something about the Pennsylvania countryside. It smells clean and innocent. And after four weeks crammed inside a stuffy space simulator testing lab, my senses needed to get reacquainted with nature.
