MacGyver storms into his houseboat only to discover that Jack Dalton and Penny Parker have left him messages asking him for help. Jack wants him to help buy a ranch and Penny wants him to hear her new number she's doing at a frontier park. MacGyver erases them and puts in a tape of Gunfight at the O.K. Corral
. However, he doses off in front of the television and dreams.....Read the full recap
Pete: I told the board you would do it. I gave them my word. I made a commitment.
MacGyver: You committed me! Without asking me, without giving me a chance to say yes or no. Now, come on, Pete, look at me! I'm a hurtin' guy, I'm beat up. I need a month's worth of sleep... and I need a haircut!
Emmenthaler: But a man needs a gun.
MacGyver: You know, I can't figure why. I wasn't born with one. Surely don't plan on dying with one.
Emmenthaler: My friend, you will die much quicker without one. You will be the only man in Montana without a gun. How will you defend yourself?
MacGyver: I'll just have to think of something.
MacGyver: Well, the problem there is I'm not much of a drinker, but I'd be willing to pay for the food and settle for a bottle of milk.
Wilt Bozer: Milk?
Milt Bozer: What kind, pilgrim? Cow? Horse? Goat? Or mother's?
Jack Dalton: Dalton. Andrew Jackson Dalton. No relation to the Dalton Gang. Call me Jack.
Penny Parker: First or last?
Murdoc: I understand you have work for me.
Pete: I hear you're good.
Murdoc: To be precise, I'm the best.
MacGyver: You think the marshal in Serenity will stand up to Murdoc?
Pete: Wyatt? He's about as tough as a bucket of warm spit. Nobody in town's going to help us. They're all scared of Murdoc.
MacGyver: That's reasonable. So am I.
