His voice was in Widowmaker... does that count?

My first reaction is no.

But then they would have credited him for doing the voice work I guess.. so..um... I guess...maybe... *shrugs*

what do you think is the best gag/prank Jack played on MacGyver?


Definitely hands down it'd have to be emptying all the stuff from his apartment in "Jack of Lies" just to get his attention! laugh.gif biggrin.gif

And Murdoc was the one who did it the second time in "Halloween Knights" (and of course, MacGyver immediately suspected Jack Dalton.)
Though if anyone would have done this prank more than once to MacGyver, I could certainly believe Jack might have pulled it off!

Though the gag in the "Friends" episode was pretty good too- as well as building a plane in Mac's apartment in "The Odd Triple"- hard to top that one! laugh.gif

But let's see- all the Jack Dalton episodes (without looking)
2nd. Season
"Jack of Lies"
"Dalton, Jack of Spies"
"Partners"
"Friends"

3rd. Season
"Lost Love" (Part 1)
"Lost Love" (Part 2)
"Jack in the Box"
"The Widowmaker" (if you count Jack's voice on Mac's answering machine and his picture in MacGyver's houseboat)
"The Odd Triple"
"Mask of the Wolf"
"Rock the Cradle"

4th. Season
"On a Wing and a Prayer"
"Ma Dalton"
"Brainwashed"
"Unfinished Business"

5th. Season
"Halloween Knights" (though we don't see Jack Dalton, he's at least referenced because Murdoc has stolen his pilot's cap and pin to lure MacGyver)
"Serenity" (in MacGyver's Western dream)
"Jenny's Chance"

6th. Season
"Hind-Sight" (in flashbacks)

7th. Season
"The Mountain of Youth"

Well, IMBd does credit him on Widowmaker's voice work, but not Hollywood Knights. So, MacGyver wins the Gold Star! dancemachine.gif

Looks like MacGyver was his longest gig as far as television appearances go.

And I agree with the emptying of the apartment... It's what stands out when I think of Jack.

"Hollywood Knights"? Hmm, haven't heard of that one. Maybe they should do that for a reunion movie though. Yeah, I can see it now- "MacGyver Goes to the Movies"!!! (Come on- RDA on the big screen in his internationally best known role ever (and best role!)- Angus MacGyver!!!) smile.gif

Oops... Halloween Knights! What was I thinking...?

I guess in flashback scenes they get paid.

QUOTE (Mac @ 24 May 2007 - 12:17 PM)
He brings out this side of Mac that few other people do; a petty, meanish, sarcastic, exasperated side that really fills out Mac's character.

Jack is more complex than he's often given credit for, capable of real emotion and noble sacrifice, all couched in his apparent self-centredness. His exuberance, enthusiasm, and zest for life lend themselves well to Jack's unique brand of humour. He's a comic, but rarely a clown.

I think you really hit the nail on the head here! Not a whole lot I can add to what's already been said, but Jack is my favorite character outside of MacGyver. I love every episode with Jack in it!

unsure.gif Does anyone else here Mac and Jack conversations in their head? lol...sometimes it's tipped off by the strangest things, but then suddenly something will remind me of those two and they're bantering in my head... laugh.gif

Not necessarily Mac and Jack conversations, but yeah, sometimes I can really hear Mac in my head happy.gif
Something happens or people say something and my brain goes like "Didn't Mac say something like that once?" or "What would Mac say?" or "Hm, what was that trick Jack played on Mac?"

And then I imagine meeting Mac and make up my own Mac and Berni conversations
tongue.gif That's great fun too.

I'm a pretty normal person though, I've just got a lot of imagination and I love daydreaming biggrin.gif tongue.gif

I think so too. Including the scene in the hangar where he pretends to fall down and Mac wants to catch him roller.gif clapping.gif
Sooo mean. Imagine your best friend falling down and thinking he is going to die. What a shock! ohno-smiley.gif

I love how they developed Jack further to reveal other sides to him than just the comic relief. He has the potential to be a two-dimensional character in the wrong writer's hands, but in episodes like Ma Dalton, you get to see more of his emotional depth. He may seem like an unethical schemer sometimes, but he has a sense of integrity and nobility about him as well, though it may not be as obvious. wink.gif

LOVE Jack and part of it is how great of an actor Bruce McGill is. He's still in movies and TV everywhere. Talented guy.
My favorite quote was when he and MacGyver were mining for that crooked sheriff and MacGyver put dynamite inside the suitcase with five million bucks.
He screams, "No, no not the money, not the money!!!"
It blows up, Jack stares, "Five Million bucks..."
Mac says something along the lines of , "Forget it, Jack. It's only money..." The look on Dalton's face is priceless as he ponders that....
LOVE him.

Jack Dalton. Funny thing, my second name is Dalton too, although I'm not Jack. I think that his best episodes are, Partners, Dalton, Jack of lies adn Dalton, Jack of spies. I like the last one a lot:

"I've decided to lay low for a while"
"Don't you think that six feet under ground is lying low a bit too much?"

He does know how to have fun, but that eye of his is a real problem. Remember when he tryed to impress Peny Parker in the second season?

"Truth hurts, doesn't jack?"
"Especially when your not used to it"



In my oppinion, Graham Bell has a lot to answer for. It gets harder and harder to escape from the world, the news and worst of all, people.

I can only put this one way.

Jack. Dalton. Is. The. Best. (Next to Mac MacG.gif wub.gif biggrin.gif )

I love all the episodes with Jack in them. The relationship between him and Mac is so sweet and brotherly, yet at the same time, they also have arguments and fights... it made the whole Mac Jack relationship believeable.

QUOTE

I'd say when he stole Mac's furniture, then when he jumped off the ceiling support.

I also like when he fakes his death, that entire scene is so funny. Last time I watched that episode, I nearly fell off my bed laughing roller.gif . The look on Mac's face when 'dead' Jack Dalton's eye starts twitching, then when Mac slammed the coffin lid shut and said "I hate seeing him when he looks like this." to the drunks in the back. roller.gif Hilairous!

Hey ScreamingBansheila, the line from Steven Wright about the toast and the cat made me laugh roller.gif roller.gif That is a riot!! I also love the scene with Mac's furniture getting taken: priceless, almost as funny as the cat with the toast on its back getting dropped. Not that I would actually do it though, even though my daughter's cat might deserve it by the end of the night.

Yeah, when I first saw the quote, it made me laugh too. I have a cat, and even thought I love him to death wub.gif , he can still be a major pain in the... neck. dry.gif happy.gif.

Yeah, I still can only say that this scene is one of the best pranks that Jack has played on Mac. The look on his face is priceless! And the note Jack leaves...

If you ever want to see your fridge alive, meet me at the west end of the airport, hangar 13.
Come alone or the fridge fries."

No, can't say i know all the episodes Jack appeared in off the top of my head. but then i've yet to finish season 7 on DVD.

I love the way Jack rubbed MacGyver the wrong way with his practical gags and jokes. The look on Mac's face was always priceless when he realized it was Jack who was responsible.

what do you think is the best gag/prank Jack played on MacGyver?


i would say when he removed everything out of MacGyvers place and lead him to a werehouse, where he riged the door and faked himself falling off the raffters. too funny.

Jack is great.  Overall, I like him better than Mac.

This is Jack Dalton (MacGyver's friend) we're talking about here, not Jack O'Neill right?

Maybe Jack is Mac's other half (personality wise)
