Jack is living a low-rent neighborhood after the failure of his most recent scheme and introduces MacGyver to his neighbor Jamie Two Eagles. Two Eagles has been mugged but Jack says that his friend will be fine and thanks MacGyver for the ride home. Jack makes Two Eagles breakfast and asks how he can help. As he talks, Two Eagles gets out an Indian "talking staff" and remembers a totem pole and his father giving him the necklace of the eagle as a child. He tells Jack of the Mask of the Illacom, and how his grandfather made a sacred place where the Mask of Illacom was located, on the Kaqwani Indian Reservation. Two Eagles says he must go there one last time, and that his people have been the keepers of the Mask. He asks Jack for help, saying he will be the first white person to see the powers of the mask...

Episode Quotes
MacGyver: Some people spend their lives trying to move up in the world. My friend Jack Dalton was at the top of that list. A dreamer who wakes up every morning with a new idea that'll rocket him to the top of the economic ladder. The trouble is, because he was always in such a big hurry to get there, he'd take the kind of shortcuts that would drop him a rung lower.

Jack Dalton: What is it? You don't like eggs with chocolate sauce?
Two Eagles: You make a better nurse than a chef.

Two Eagles: My time has passed. My people are scattered, lost. No one knows about the old ways anymore. The ways of the wolf spirit.
Jack Dalton: So, you're a little down in the dumps...

Jack Dalton: Oh come on, Mac. Where's your sense of adventure? What happened to that will o' the wisp guy I've come to know and love?
MacGyver: He's skiing. At a resort, where the greatest danger is an overpopulated hot tub.

Jack Dalton: Well I didn't come here to be shunned. I wouldn't shun you. Why would you shun me? I hate being shunned.

Two Eagles: You would sell out your own people?
Perry: What have they done for me lately? I look out for number one.

Grant: We can make this a very unpleasant trip for you, Chief.
Two Eagles: I'm too old to be afraid.
Grant: Yeah, but you're not too old to be history.

Perry: My father was a fool, like you. He followed the trap lines until he died in his tracks out here. That's not going to happen to me. I work for Grant. I drive a Camaro.
Two Eagles: Bad trade for your soul.

Perry: It's not just the old man. The spirit of the wolf is part of my people.
Grant: Aw, since when? Perry, you and I have been stealing beads and trinkets out of the graves of your people for three years

Jack Dalton: Hey, we're not dead yet! MacGyver's going to get us out of here. Aren't you, MacGyver?
MacGyver: Haven't got a clue.
Jack Dalton: Mac, that's not like you.
MacGyver: This door is over a foot thick!
