Episode Quotes
MacGyver: I'll brief you on each of the next four days as we go along. Any questions?
Chuck Laraby: Yeah, what's for dinner?
MacGyver: A gourmet selection of the finest freeze-dried food known to man.

(at a high bridge)
Chuck Laraby: The brochure said this was going to be a stress-free weekend.
Tony Parisio: Come on, Chuck, you're not afraid of falling, are you?
Chuck Laraby: No, it's the sudden stop at the bottom that worries me.

MacGyver: Acrophobia wasn't on your application for this program. Are you hiding anything else?
Chuck Laraby: Just my pride.

Tony Parisio: You know, one of these days you're gonna wake up dead if you don't learn to relax.

Henry Colter: You don't actually think we look like convicts?
Liz: You tell me. What's a convict look like?
Henry Colter: Actually, we look pretty bad. (laughs)
