Goofs

The C-47 aircraft in the episode had a "normal" maximum load of 6,000 pounds with an "emergency maximum load" of 7,000 pounds. The plane was transporting $100 million in gold bars. Even using $400/ounce, more than the 1989 maximum price, the gold would have weighed over 15,000 pounds. If it was the WW II value, the gold weight would have been over 190,000 pounds. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
MacGyver: I was ready for a lazy week of serious scuba diving off the Grand Keys. A Spanish galleon load with treasure had gone down over 4 centuries ago, and I was gonna spend my vacation lookin' for it. But, Pete Thorton had another idea. It also involved treasure hunting, but he told me I could leave my Hawaiian shirt at home.
