Quotes Edit

Wilt Bozer: I won't let you down, Matty.
Matilda Webber: You won't have a job if you do.

Jack Dalton: You have zero respect for my stuff, dude! (watched Mac switch the painting with his boot)
Jack Dalton: Oh, wait, wait, I see what you're doing, Dr. Jones. Yeah, I'm with you.

Angus MacGyver: You don't cut an original Franz Marc!
Jack Dalton: Why not?!
Angus MacGyver: Because it's a Franz Marc.

Jack Dalton: Oh, so what? I don't know what color horses are in Franz's world, but in Texas, they damn sure ain't- (alarm sounds)
Angus MacGyver: What did you just do?!
Jack Dalton: Nothing, I just sat in this chair.
Angus MacGyver: It's not a chair, it's art.
Jack Dalton: It's a chair.
Angus MacGyver: It's-It's art! Get out of it!

Jack Dalton: Since when is a chair art?
Angus MacGyver: Since it was made in the 18th century.
Jack Dalton: Oh, so if something's old, it's just automatically art?
Angus MacGyver: Yes!
Jack Dalton: Than I'm a millionaire two times over!

Riley Davis: Guys, you're gonna make me throw up, just get out of there.

Jack Dalton: Chairs are not art, okay? They're just not! They're just chairs. All you do is sit in them.

Jack Dalton: Every newbie starts seeing secret agents lurking in the shadows, man.
Angus MacGyver: Just take a deep breath, don't get sidetracked, focus on your training, and stay out of trouble, will you?
(Sam walks in the boys bathroom)
Jack Dalton: Boundaries!

Samantha Cage: Wheels up in 20... Wrap it up in here, girls.
Jack Dalton: Well, you heard the lady.

Wilt Bozer: Oh Oh, one more thing, totally unrelated. Remember when we were ten, and we broke into my uncle's tool shed? How'd you get through that giant padlock?
Angus MacGyver: That is not totally unrelated. I'm not gonna help you break into some poor guy's garage...Have fun at training.

Leanna Martin: What are you doing in someone's backyard?
Wilt Bozer: It's, uh Well, uh It's a long story.
Leanna Martin: Any story with some light B and E is worth a listen.

Matilda Webber: You lost the Franz Marc. That's what you're telling me?
Angus MacGyver: I mean, it was really elegant in its simplicity..The real Franz Marc, it goes into a machine, and then they show us an X-ray image, congratulate us on the authenticity, then pull out a fake. It's just sleight of hand, but at its finest.
Matilda Webber: Oh. I'm glad you're all so impressed by their con.

Samantha Cage: Perhaps we should focus on the mission, hash this out later? Open comms mean Mac and I can hear every word.
Angus MacGyver: Yeah, but Jack's gonna tell me about this at the house later on, so this saves me time.

Jack Dalton: Of course he'll have to walk by that giant bronze statue they erected of me there I'm kind of a legend.
Angus MacGyver: Didn't they kick you out after the whole septic tank incident?
Jack Dalton: I'll tell you the same thing I told my instructor: I thought it was a dummy grenade. And I didn't get kicked out, I graduated early.
Riley Davis: Does that mean you never graduated?
