Goofs

Lynn Valley and Jericho Point, seen on the map on which the power station is indicated, are part of a northeastern suburb of North Vancouver, BC. If the Phoenix Foundation, as previously established, is in Los Angeles, then North Vancouver, let alone its surrounding ski resorts, would be much too far for MacGyver and Pete to drive out to for a *weekend* ski trip.

Quotes

[first lines]
MacGyver: [narration] It's occurred to me that some friendships are like a good game of hockey. The right balance of team work and smooth skating generally adds up to a winning combination. Like me and Pete Thornton. Partner, boss, friend - you can't do much better than that. But sometimes things come up that test the best of friendships, and this weekend of skiing was one of them.
Pete Thornton: It wasn't my fault!
MacGyver: Whose fault was it?
Pete Thornton: The guy cut me off, what was I supposed to do?
