- This one line between MacGyver and the episodes' damsel from the pilot episode stands out as the joke that works as the perfect Establishing Series Moment for this particular show.
Barbara Spencer: Blow an opening. With what? Don't tell me you know how to make a bomb out of a stick of chewing gum?MacGyver: Why, you got some?
- The coach in "Legend of the Holy Rose". He turns Large Ham Up to Eleven: "Your department won't only be broke, it'll be ANNIHILATED!!!!"
- MacGyver and his guard in "Last Stand", mainly when the guard asks him about the item he's using to make his latest contraption work.
MacGyver: Lateral... cranial... impact... enhancer. (he then smacks the guard across the head with said item)
- In one episode, MacGyver and another man are saved from being processed on a conveyor belt by being shunted... into a container of fish. The man's response?
