Magnifying Glass

Fish Scaler is the 14th episode of Season 1 in the remake version of MacGyver.


Using a fish scaler and some fishing wire, Mac and Jack must track down a corrupt FBI agent who has framed a man for murder. Also, everyone on the team is terrified to get their first performance review from Matty, their tough new boss.


Mac and Jack track down an FBI fugitive, who claims that he was forced to work for a dirty agent. The two must protect the fugitive while the team figures out who is the dirty FBI agent. Meanwhile, Bozer and Riley must meet with Matty for their first evaluation.




  • None



Wilt Bozer: Yeah, but you don't not know that she's not going to not care.
Angus MacGyver: Was that a quadruple negative?
Wilt Bozer: I don't know. I lost count.

Riley Davis: Any idea what happened between them?
Angus MacGyver: No, he won't tell me.
Wilt Bozer: Which means whatever it is... it's got to be his fault.
Angus MacGyver: It also means that unless Matty was your station chief for 18 months in South America, these evaluations are nothing to worry about.
Riley Davis: Oh, really? Is that why yours keeps getting postponed?
Wilt Bozer: Postponed?
Riley Davis: Oh, yeah. Twice. First, a coffee machine mysteriously catches fire. Then, a well-placed gum wrapper puts Phoenix's entire security system on lockdown.
Angus MacGyver: I know, it's weird. I wonder how that got wedged in there.

Jack Dalton: Points for originality, but this only counts as an escape if we don't die.
