Episode Quotes
MacGyver: Growin' up fifteen hundred miles away from the ocean, you hardly ever get a really good sea breeze. So for a Minnesota boy like me, livin' on the water was kinda perfect.

Jimmy Kendall: In the old days I would have had a piece to even up the odds.
MacGyver: That's not the only way.
Jimmy Kendall: Yeah, and a couple of grenades, too.

Jimmy Kendall: That mop is not going to hold them long.
MacGyver: Sometimes you just have to think positive.
Jimmy Kendall: Okay, I'm positive we're dead.

Jimmy Kendall: This is it? This is where you live?
MacGyver: Yeah. What's wrong with it?
Jimmy Kendall: It's a houseboat. It's going to sink.
MacGyver: I'll get you a life jacket.

Susan Walker: It's no use, we're trapped.
Jimmy Kendall: Nah, they were tailing us, they would have been here already. And MacGyver, you can't kill him with an axe.

Susan Walker: Dad, no. Please.
Jimmy Kendall: That... I guess that's the only thing I ever wanted to hear.

Jimmy Kendall: Not many guys would take a bullet for a friend.
MacGyver: What do you say we don't make a habit of it... friend.
