MacGyver and Pete go to a genealogy store to meet with Pete's friend Irwin Malcolm. He traces the MacGyver clan back to the McIver clan and claims that one stemmed from the other. Ancestors in both dating back to the 14th century gave their sons the same first name as MacGyver. The lineage goes even further back to the 7th century where there are references to an Ian McIver who fell victim to a great evil and was imprisoned in a dungeon. That Ian's son also shares MacGyver's first name...

Episode Quotes
King Arthur: Merlin has demonstrated his power. Now you must offer proof of yours, or for having falsely claimed the gift, forfeit your life.
MacGyver: You guys don't mess around, do you?

King Arthur: Show us some good magic, Stranger. Some magic of creation. Or by this court you must die.
MacGyver: You guys are so strict.

MacGyver: I don't suppose anyone has a pestle?
Merlin: I am an alchemist. My cloak is my laboratory.

Merlin: Unhand me, I say, traitorous toadstools! Unhand me this instance or I'll turn you into dragon drunge!

Merlin: Dragon drunge.
MacGyver: You're going to have to tell me what that means some day.

MacGyver: So I'm making an electrophoresis.
Merlin: Is that Greek?
MacGyver: No, it's a machine.
Merlin: What's a machine?
MacGyver: I knew you were going to ask that.

MacGyver: All right, here goes nothing. Keep your fingers crossed.
Merlin: "Here goes nothing." "Keep your finger crossed." My life is in the balance and you talk riddles?
MacGyver: Cliches, actually.

Merlin: What kind of a fool do you take me for?
MacGyver: An innocent fool, Merlin.
