  • Angus MacGyver and Jack Dalton walked past the front of the red pick-up truck towards Mammas but in the next shot, Mac was beside it on the right side, picking up his phone from underneath.

Jack Dalton: Hey... Are you sure this is quicksand?
MacGyver: Yeah. I'm pretty sure this is still quicksand.
Jack Dalton: Okay, all right. There's no reason to get spicy about it. I'm just asking. Drowning in quicksand... this ain't going to be fun, bro. This has got to be, like, one of the worst ways to die.
MacGyver: Well, you'll be happy to know that most people don't even die from drowning in quicksand. It's a colloid hydrogel. It's made of sand, clay and water.
Jack Dalton: Oh, I was wrong. Drowning in quicksand while getting a science lecture...That's the worst way to die.

Matilda Webber: When police checked his trunk, they found three body bags, a shovel, and a whole lot of bleach..
Angus MacGyver: To be fair, though, there's, like, 12 different things he could've been doing with that.
Matilda Webber: (Stares of Mac)
Angus MacGyver: Yeah, you're right, though, he's probably just burying bodies.

Billy Colton: Amazing how many friends you can buy - with a free round of drinks.
Jack Dalton: Just one round? Well, what a cheapskate.

Angus MacGyver: Give me your phone.
Jack Dalton: No way, man. Every time I hand you my phone, I end up at the Genius Bar, explaining to them why my phone's glued to a football or wired to a vacuum cleaner.

Angus MacGyver: Hey, if this guy's at another stuck stop-
Jack Dalton: We're buying everyone two rounds of beers!
Angus MacGyver: Exactly.

(being handcuffed)
Jack Dalton: Owww, I can see you’ve done this before.
Jesse Colton: It’s my favorite part of the job.

Jack Dalton: Seriously, Billy, why do you smell like a pooper?
Billy Colton You got one more time!
Jack Dalton: K

Jack Dalton: Ooh, the rough stuff. I like that. You're really sweet. Cute, too.

Jack Dalton: What can I tell you, Matty. Heavy is the head that wears the crown.
