Goofs

If Mac's jeep had run out of gas, he would not be able to just start it immediately after adding the gas and drive away as is shown in the movie. He would either have to pump the accelerator and crank the engine a few times (carburetor) or click on the key and let the fuel pump run a few seconds (fuel injection) to get the new gas through the empty fuel line to reach the cylinders.

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?
