* PullingTheRugOut: In "Three for the Money", Mac tries to talk down a belligerent drunk who is spoiling for a fight. When it becomes obvious, he cannot get away from the fight, Mac tales off his leather jacket and lays it on the ground; saying he doesn't want it to get damaged in the fight. Predictably, the drunk immediately stands on the jacket. Mac then yanks it out from under his feet, dropping the drunk and stopping the fight before it starts.

* ActionPrologue: Most of the time, as can be expected from a show like this. Parodied in "Children Of Light", which opens with the implication that MacGyver is defusing a bomb that's set to go off in a minute with Pete present...but it turns out he's just fixing Pete's alarm clock radio with the alarm set to go off in a minute, which is why he's rushing MacGyver.
