MacGyver is burnt out because of the Phoenix Foundation's demanding tasks and decides to take a leave. Also, in his answering machine, there are messages from Jack, who has yet another crazy fortune-making idea, and Penny, who is asking for a favor. MacGyver tries to watch a western on TV, but falls asleep on the couch. In his dream, he is in post-Emancipation Old West, arriving in a town called Serenity. There he meets incarnations of Jack, Penny, Wilt Bozer, Milt Bozer, Billy Colton, and, of course, his nemesis, Murdoc... But the Bad Guy is Pete! Written by

Wilt Bozer's addressing Mac as "pilgrim" and asking sarcastically what type of milk he wants is an obvious reference to John Wayne, since Wayne addresses someone as "pilgrim" in two of his westerns, and also references the famous line, "Get off your horse and drink your milk" that is also attributed to Wayne, even though The Duke never actually said this in any of his movies.
