MacGyver: There's a pretty simple reason why fishermen get up at the crack of dawn; that's when the fish get up. But even when I'm not going fishing, I like to drive across the city that early in the morning, when there's no one else around. You can really feel the silence. (car zooms past) Most of the time.
MacGyver: Do you know who's following us?
Elaine Harryman: Friends of my husband.
MacGyver: Any reason why?
Elaine Harryman: I'm having a girl, and he wanted a son. Could you step on it, please?
MacGyver: I supposed I could've tested this ramp before I drove over it.
Elaine Harryman: And they talk about woman drivers.
Elaine Harryman: I don't suppose you know anything about delivering a baby? (MacGyver stares) I didn't think so.
MacGyver: I don't think right now is such a good time for that to be happening.
Elaine Harryman: Tell that to this kid.
MacGyver: (whispers to her stomach) Not now!
Elaine Harryman: The contractions just stopped.
MacGyver: Well-behaved kid.
Elaine Harryman: Can't wait to see how you'll get us out of this pit.
MacGyver: Me too.
MacGyver: I think if you try hard enough and make the best of a situation, the situation won't get the best of you.
Elaine Harryman: Are you ever wrong about anything?
MacGyver: Never. Well, once. Maybe twice.
Elaine Harryman: Once is all it takes to ruin your life.
MacGyver: Good thing about boats. Some of the stuff you find on them work just as well on land as they do on sea.
