Trivia

Deborah performs a clever "getting into character mode" action --- using a multi-tool instead of an ordinary flat-tipped screwdriver to install the bug inside the wall-socket --- to better understand what makes the Swiss-Army-knife-toting MacGyver tick. See more »

Goofs

The line-by-line entries in Debbie's list of options on how to "handle" MacGyver are fairly close together (only one space between lines) on the computer screen, yet when the final "Kill him off?" entry is displayed by itself, there is far too much "blank-screen" space above the entry for it to be part of the same double-spaced list.

Quotes

[first lines]
Remick: MacGyver.
MacGyver: Mr. Remick.
Remick: Its beautiful, isn't it? And it won't change, you know. I mean, I - I don't know what you think you're protecting. We don't want to see it change, either. The beauty of this land enhances the value of our own investment. I mean, you think we're fools; act against our own interests?
MacGyver: I think your company's first priority is to get your marina built.
