Wilt Bozer: Why are men like this always surrounded by big scary guys with big scary guns?
James MacGyver: Because it isn't deep-frying potatoes. This is the big leagues.
Wilt Bozer: Actually, sir, I used to fry potatoes, - and it wasn't that easy.
James MacGyver: I know that. That's why I rejected employing you twice.
Wilt Bozer: The hell?!
Jack Dalton: What's the plan?
Angus MacGyver: Get the hell out of here.
Jack Dalton: You know, I was kind of thinking since I'm the only reason you're even in power in the first place, maybe you could do us a solid and-and not kill our friend.
Jack Dalton: You need to put this personal BS with your old man to the side and realize this is exactly where you're supposed to be, on the razor's edge with your boy, cheating death.
