Episode Quotes
Mrs. Wilson: You should leave that kind of work to me, Father Lafferty.
Father Pat Lafferty: It's almost Christmas, Mrs. Wilson. I have to work on my Brownie points somehow.

Pete: Both Santa and Phoenix deliver on time.

Carol: I bet your mother always wanted you to be a doctor.
MacGyver: Well, not exactly. But she did always say I was good with my hands.
Carol: She was right.

MacGyver: You know, every time I see you in that collar, I gotta remind myself that you're the same kid that used to run me into the boards during hockey practice.
Father Pat Lafferty: I remember it the other way around.
MacGyver: No way!

(Pete comes in dressed as Santa)
MacGyver: Now how'd you talk him into that?
