Did You Know?

Goofs

When MacGyver and Dalton stop to see Jack's contact dead, one of the police officers, an undercover bad guy, says they're the ones who killed the contact and then calls them by name: Dalton and MacGyver. Yet while he had seen MacGyver earlier in the episode, he had not heard his name and therefore would not know it. See more »
