Sheriff Cliff Howels
Sheriff Howels: The last thing I need is a couple of amateurs getting in the way of police work.
Penny: MacGyver's not an amateur.
MacGyver: Well, actually I am.
MacGyver: Whatever's going on around here has got nothing to do with ghosts, or goblins, or the supernatural. There is a purely logical explanation for everything.
Penny: Really? Well, that would sound a lot more reassuring if you weren't holding a human skull.
Penny: Don't tell me that you didn't hear them.
MacGyver: Oh... it's probably the plumbing.
Penny: The plumbing does not bang on walls and drag things around and moan.
Penny: MacGyver, you nearly scared me to death!
MacGyver: Well, we nearly went together.
Penny: The house is alive, I can feel it. It watches me, follows my every move. I'm doomed to wander here. Alone for all eternity. Alone with the monster.
Sheriff Howels: You an archaeologist, Mr. MacGyver?
MacGyver: No, not professionally.
Sheriff Howels: Growing up, used to hear stories about an old Indian burial ground around here. First time anybody's ever found part of it, though.
MacGyver: Well, I don't think the Indians had dentists. At least, none that used gold crowns.
Penny: I found it hidden in my Aunt Betty's music box. By the way, are you any good at fixing music boxes?
Penny: Chocolate mint and banana icing—you even remembered my favorite.
MacGyver: Yeah. Who could forget a combination like that?
MacGyver: You can see where the lime seeped into the rock here. That means the upper part of this wall is above ground.
Penny: MacGyver, we're all going to die, and you're giving us geology lessons!
Penny: Did you know my Aunt Betty?
Sylvia: Oh, everybody in town knew Crazy Betty.
Penny: "Crazy"? You mean like, fun-loving and carefree?
Sylvia: I mean crazy. Loopy as a loon.
MacGyver: Penny, I'm sorry, the supernatural is just an easy way to explain what we can't understand.
Penny: Anyway, he told me how Aunt Betty's estate goes to the nearest female relative on her 25th birthday. And today is my 25th birthday, and I'm the closest female relative, and before I know it, I'm an heiress! Isn't that wild?
MacGyver: There was a long story behind the way Penny came into her inheritance, and she was in no hurry to shorten it. In high school geometry, I learned the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but when telling a story, Penny always takes the scenic route. Hold it. I hear a point coming up.
MacGyver: You never know where life is gonna take you. This is especially true when you've got a friend like Penny Parker.
MacGyver: See? Told you. Nothing to be afraid of.
Penny: That's easy for you to say. I'm the one that found out that I'm related to a gangster and a madwoman.
MacGyver: Well, you know, that doesn't surprise me.
MacGyver: Uhh, what I mean is every family's got a black sheep in the pack.
Penny: Any black sheep in your family?
MacGyver: You're looking at him.
