MacGyver parachutes into Kabustan and uses a Phoenix radio tracker to locate a downed airplane. As he explores the wreckage, he hears someone whistling. Jack Dalton strolls in. MacGyver is thrilled to have him alive, but less than thrilled to be sent in to rescue Jack from another of his scams. Jack says that he's there on legitimate Phoenix Foundation business, but MacGyver wonders how he convinced the board to underwrite his plan to find the Fountain of Youth. Jack claims the army isn't interested in the area, and that there's a spring in Amakash Valley that reverses aging. MacGyver isn't convinced despite the fact Jack's eye isn't twitching. The helicopter will be there in four hours, but Jack insists on going to find the spring. MacGyver reluctantly goes along with him despite his suspicions...

Episode Quotes
(about MacGyver)
Baba: It is written, another stranger will follow the first. A resourceful man. He is drawn to this abomination and to our destiny. He will come from the sky, out of the West.

MacGyver: You're okay!
Jack Dalton: You came for me.
MacGyver: Thank God you're all right.
Jack Dalton: Yeah, yeah.
MacGyver: Nothing's broken.
Jack Dalton: No. I'm fine.
MacGyver: Oh great. Now I can break your neck!

MacGyver: What I can't figure is how you conned Pete and the entire Phoenix board into underwriting this scheme of yours.
Jack Dalton: Scheme? Who said it was a scheme?
MacGyver: I did. Just now. Didn't you hear me?

Jack Dalton: This is a mystical place. You got to go with the flow.
MacGyver: Well for me, the flow is that way.

Mukti: Something wrong, MacGyver?
MacGyver: Oh, not yet. But I can feel it coming.

Jack Dalton: You're getting us involved in trouble, Mac.
MacGyver: Well, that's kind of a switch, isn't it?

Mukti: What do these h-bombs do?
Jack Dalton: Kill people. Just one will wipe out a city the size of New York.
Mukti: Why would the Kabustanis want such a fearsome device?
Jack Dalton: Power. Greed.
MacGyver: Insanity. Welcome to our world.

MacGyver: I'll be right back.
Jack Dalton: I hate it when he says that. I hate it!

MacGyver: You lied to me, Jack.
Jack Dalton: Never. About what?

MacGyver: If I don't make it back, that tape has got to make it to the UN.
Jack Dalton: And you trust me? What a switch!
