Jack Dalton: You swing like a little girl.
Cuban: (hit's him harder)
Jack Dalton: ...Yeah. That was more manly.

Cuban: Why are you looking for this man!
Jack Dalton: (mimicking accent) He datez my sister.

Cuban: What's so funny?!
Jack Dalton: (hits him in the face)
Angus MacGyver: You know, you could have hit him with your fists.
Jack Dalton:I know, but a headbutt sends a much clearer message.

Angus MacGyver: Anyways! With this watch my dad taught me, with the right parts you can make anything. Even time.

Samantha Cage: I'm yet to hear a question inside all that innuendo Jack!

Samantha Cage: I don't fish in the company pond. I never enter relationships with men or women I work with.

Jack Dalton: It's a fortress! it's probably got a drawbridge and a dungeon.
Angus MacGyver: Actually it's a hissar. One of the castles built by the Sultan during the Ottoman Empire between 1299 and 14..53? AD
Samantha Cage: Did you just man-splain to him?
Jack Dalton: It's no man-splaining if it's man-to-man. It's just splaining.

Samantha Cage: I played soccer from the time I was 4, all the way through college!
Jack Dalton: Yeah, yeah. And I was the kicker for my middle school team.

Wilt Bozer: Yeah, it'll take more than a knife-wielding psychopath to stop me. I mean, not much more, but...

Matilda Webber: Oversight has informed me that I need to officially need to warn you both about your role in this mission.
Angus MacGyver: ...Wai- An official warning, that's it?!
Angus MacGyver: (Looks over at Jack)
Angus MacGyver: That's it?!
Jack Dalton: I got so many warnings on my official record, I've lost count.

Matilda Webber: It'll go on your permanent file!
Jack Dalton: So what?!
