Storyline

To Mac's surprise, for the first time in 20 years his grandpa Harry, who raised the genius after his parents's untimely death in a car accident, accepted on that anniversary to join him for a hockey game. However Mac forgot the tickets, so they look for them in Pete's office, just when the Phoenix Foundation building is penetrated by ruthless killer Victoria James alias Susan Murphy, who was hired by the terrorist Liberation Front to plant a bomb which Mac disarmed in Kuwait and now wants to destroy it with its record before it's traced to her. After noticing Mac, she negotiates the front to pay her $100,000 extra to kill him and uses the Front stooges she planned to kill anyhow, but a few Macgyverisms overcome their clumsy attempts to imprison and kill Mac, while she deletes the bomb's inventory file and holds Harry hostage. The duel to the death is on... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

The locking-bar is braced against the same windowed door that Mac is peering out of, so the subsequent shot of the door and the lock shows the wrong angle to be a representation of what Mac sees --- Mac's view would be an inverted image of the top end of the locking-bar and its shaft jutting out at a slight angle down to its suction-cup floor-base, not a wide-angle right-side-up "standard" view of the door and lock as seen from across the hallway, as it is shown.

Quotes

[first lines]
MacGyver: When I was about ten I got my first chemistry set. I had been a beaker and test-tube nut ever since. My mom said I was going to come up with a formula that would either improve the world, or; blow up the house.
