Quotes

[first lines]
MacGyver: [voice-over narration] I have this recurring nightmare. I'm on a game show and the $100,000 question is, "What's the opposite of Swissair?" And before I can think, I answer, Dalton Airways. Jack Dalton's dream, my nightmare, and at the moment, we were both living it. He'd picked up this lame duck at a drug enforcement auction in Mexico, at a bargain basement price, of course. Even drug-dealing desperadoes draw the line at what they'll fly. But not Jack. Oh, no.
