MacGyver's watch vanishes in one shot when he makes the stairway trap.
MacGyver: This problem's kinda tricky: no place to go, and no way to get there.
MacGyver: Lots of people think a car runs on gas. Only one-third correct. A car also runs on air and water.
MacGyver: I know a brick wall when it falls on me.
MacGyver: Oh, I get it. You're willing to break the law in order to uphold it!
MacGyver: He's worried about his mother.
Joey: I'll worry about his mother; you tell Frank to worry about his brother. Then give him my love.
Joey: No trouble, right? Not here… but I owe you.
MacGyver: I'd love to collect sometime.
Frank: Who elected you my conscience?
MacGyver: Well, somebody's gotta do it.
MacGyver: (after saving Frank) I had to get you out. You forgot to pay for your coffee
Frank: We're brothers, Joey. It's just a word: it stopped meaning anything a long time ago.
MacGyver: There's got to be a gigantic secret factory somewhere puttin' out nothing but junk mail.
MacGyver: There's nothing like waking up at home for a change. Take a look around my own world - sort of ease into the day.
MacGyver: Now, technically I'm driving a stolen car, following a kidnapping . . . and I still haven't had my first cup of coffee.
MacGyver: I do what I do the way I do it.
