MacGyver (TV Series 1985–1992) Poster


Richard Dean Anderson: MacGyver



  • MacGyver : If I had some duct tape, I could fix that.

  • [MacGyver's answering machine message] 

    MacGyver : Hi, this is MacGyver. We all know how these things work, so when you hear the beep, go for it.

  • MacGyver : A paperclip can be a wondrous thing. More times than I can remember, one of these has gotten me out of a tight spot.

  • Pete : Boy, don't you ever dust this place?

    MacGyver : Twice a year, like clockwork.

  • Pete : Mac, whatever you do...

    MacGyver : I know, I know, Pete, stay out of trouble, keep the expenses down and don't get killed.

    Pete : Took the words right out of my mouth.

  • MacGyver : I'm not gonna take it in the back, and I'm not gonna take it laying down, so you're just gonna have to shoot me face to face. I can't believe I said that...

  • MacGyver : For the past seven years I have done nothing but travel around the world getting shot up, locked up, blown up... and all I have to show for it are a couple of empty rolls of duct tape.

  • Pete : Are you okay?

    MacGyver : No. But I'll live.

  • MacGyver : Old Minnesota wisdom - if you don't wanna be touched, look downright untouchable.

  • MacGyver : You guys are missing out on a good deal if you kill me. See, I'm kind of an expert with just about everything.

  • MacGyver : Egg whites are good for a lot of things - lemon meringue pie, angel food cake, and clogging up radiators.

  • MacGyver : Sometimes I just hate it when I'm right.

  • MacGyver : Well, when it comes down to me against a situation, I don't like the situation to win.

  • [repeated line] 

    MacGyver : What uh-oh?

  • MacGyver : When James Bond gets an assignment, he probably ends up on the Riviera, up to his 007's in bikinis. Me? I end up 80 miles past nowhere.

  • MacGyver : Bold and nosy. I'm famous for that.

  • MacGyver : Brace yourself. This could be fun.

  • MacGyver : [Pete has just knocked out someone about to kill MacGyver]  What took you so long?

    Pete : Well... I wanted to see who was gonna win.

  • MacGyver : You can do anything you want to do, if you put your mind to it.

  • MacGyver : Trouble just never lets up, does it?

  • MacGyver : [Pete walks in]  Hi Pete, office hours are over... Loosen your tie and have some yogurt.

  • [MacGyver is waving a large, black plastic spider at Pete Thornton] 

    MacGyver : Pete, you have no taste.

  • [repeated line] 

    [grumbling to himself under his breath] 

    MacGyver : Ah, man.
