Episode Quotes
Paul Moran: So, you like the car I had waiting for you?
MacGyver: Well, it's, uh, red, but very nice, thanks.
Paul Moran: Well, at least you didn't roll it this time.
MacGyver: It's early.

Paul Moran: MacGyver and I spent the 70s brainstorming solutions to save the world.
Natalia Krim: What a shame they didn't work.
MacGyver: We're still trying.

MacGyver: All right, look, you move like a cat, you handle a gun like a pro, and you've got a poison cartridge pen in your purse. Is there anything you want to tell me about your "unique qualifications"?
Natalia Krim: There's nothing to tell.

Tony Graves: Well, you can't go in without it, MacGyver. If you don't wear a wire, we'll have no way of knowing if anything goes wrong.
MacGyver: I don't like wires. If something does go wrong, they're impossible to explain.

Natalia Krim: You are very stubborn.
MacGyver: Really?
Natalia Krim: It's part of your charm.

Natalia Krim: You don't understand; you could never understand. No one's ever stolen your government, discarded your beliefs, left your people without dignity, with nothing.

Elise Moran: My father cared so much for this planet. He just wanted to do some good.
MacGyver: He did. The world's a safer place because of Paul.
Elise Moran: Maybe. But my father—your friend—he's gone.
MacGyver: Then I guess it's up to us.
