I got asked this question in a live radio interview a few months back with no prior warning. I kinda fumbled through it at the time, but ever since then, it comes back to haunt my thoughts from time to time of how I should have answered.. hind-sight is always 20-20.

Anyway it just popped back into my head now, so I wondered what you guys would have answered to this question with the briefing to keep answers as short and too the point as possible because they had to be translated into Spanish and your live on air.

Question: Whats your favorite MacGyverism?

Answer: ... ?

Hard to think of a best. Worst come to mind more easily (um...the pressure washer backpack things from 'The Stringer' volunteer)...I'd have to think on that. It'd probably be an early one...hm....no clue....

Tough one!

I love what Mac does with that monk's habit. It might not be the flashiest or most ingenius, but it is always the first thing I think of when someone asks me this question! biggrin.gif

Hmm... probably the glider from Legend of the Holy Rose and the flying apparatuses from The Wasteland and To Be a Man.

For some reason, there's just something I love about seeing someone make something like that that actually works.

"Give me a couple of buttons and your bobby pins..." (I'm paraphrasing here biggrin.gif ) The one where the term "MacGyverism" came from. Now if I could only recall the name of the episode... laugh.gif

Edit, got it..."Twice Stung" cool.jpg

All the different things he used the map for in the opening gambit of "The Gauntlet".
And the hot-air balloon he "improvised" in "GX-1".

Those are my favourites. Question is really tough though. I read your post last night so it took me very long to think of some favourites. And I can't decide on one as usual happy.gif
All the things you mentioned by now were great too clapping.gif

I've always liked the one where he attaches 2 rockets to an old jeep to make it run.

Or when he fixes a car's fuel line using a ball point pen (actually works)

Hmm, it would have to be when he puts the map on the hot air balloon that was shot. Love that one.
In fact, that entire episode from season one, don't know the name, he uses the map throughout the episode several times...to slide down the sand, to get a key out of a lock, etc. It's maybe the second or third episode. Anyway, I love it.
Why were you on a radio interview?

That's not an episode on it's own, its the opening Gambit to the Gauntlet episode. smile.gif

The interview was because the radio station was doing a look back at 80's TV shows and they contacted me through this site and asked if I could talk to them about MacGyver.

The scene in Partners where Mac uses the wrench, his shoe lace and a paper clip to create the escape mechanism for the car.

I also really like the gas cylinders used to push the heavy wine cask through the wall to rescue Pete. Very cool because gas cylinders really do rocket if the regulator valves are damaged.

He does it to an airplane in 'Wing and a Prayer'... but not a jeep.

I can't remember the name of the episode, but I remember Mac being stuck in a wooden shed with a 4X4 with no engine. He finds some explosives of some type, makes a rocket launcher and straps them on the back of the car. Once ignited, it has enough boost to crash through the locked shed's door and Mac escapes.

I like the one in "Target Macgyver" where he uses the pine stuff to make a mine. He was right. It burns a lot better than it tastes. I'll take his word that you can actually make make a mine out of it.

Top ten Favorite MacGyverisms:

1. Hershey bars to stop the acid leak in the pilot
2. The map in the Gauntlet
3. The escape from the car in Partners using shoelaces, a monkey wrench and a paper clip
4. The SOS call in the Widowmaker using Nikki braclet and the phone wire
5. The hot air balloon that he makes in GX-1
6. The reconstruction of the skull of Betty Parker in the Secret of Parker House
7. Mac's plan to get him and Pete out of the pit in Survivors with the rope and hammer.
8. His elaborate job in Deadly Dreams to show Dr. Zito's guilt--how Dr.Zito got the chemicals to Cross to cause his alcohlosis--using the roll of toilet paper
9. The plane with bamboo, duct tape in Legend of the Holy Rose
10. The stunning of the bad guys in Blind Faith

Another great one is in Halloween Knights with the melted wax and the fingerprint trick. The look on Murdoc's face when Mac tells him to melt wax is priceless!!

There are a lot of great MacGyverisms in 139 episodes & 2 movies. My preferable is the unbelievable way that Mac has passed the trapped wires using his gun and burning the gunpowder in "Strictly Business". That's amazing. When I was watching this scene for the first time I was stumped. I could'n imagine, before the scene, how will get over the obstacle. Excellent MacGyverism accompanied by great music clip in this scene.

I like the Two Percent Solution where he was being gassed to death and pulled the gas tube on through the wall, poked a hole in the door, stuck the gas line in the hole, and allowed the door to fill with gas. Then, of course, he busted the light bulb against the door, shattering the bulb and igniting the gas inside the door, blasting his way out to safety. Always will be my favorite. Pretty rough on the SAK, btw >_> sak.gif

My favorites are his timing devices, such as the one in Bushmaster with the machine gun. They are all about the same. I also like the one where he started a hovercraft with 2 bags of water and a couple of pieces of wood.

Favorite MacGyverism?

Probably Partners where Mac and we first meet Murdoc and then Mac uses a paper clip, a monkey wrench, a shoelace and Jack's cab to take out Murdoc's cronies who had bazookas.

I just realized that I haven't actually come up with an answer to this question yet, so after having had some time to think about it...

That scene in Lost Love where MacGyver sprinkles cleaning powder over the laser beams so he could climb in between them.

That whole scene epitomizers MacGyver for me.

The one where he uses the barrel of a ball point pen to fix a brake line. This one saved my hide once. Except I wasn't hanging on to the front of a speeding car when I did it. sak.gif

I like the jet powered jeep in Lost Treasure of Atlantis. How Mac was able to steer that thing I'll never know. But it was a cool trick. jeep.gif

I don't think it was as easy to drive as he made it out to be. ohmy.gif

Judging by the look on his face it wasn't easy! But I stick to my word, he is MacGyver and he can do anything! MacG.gif

Was there an instance where he's tied up, one hand loose and he opens the SAK one-handed? I was told he does that once, but I never managed to pinpoint what episode.

That alone is mega-cool in my book!

He does that in the Golden Triangle episode. When's he tied up on the rake, the kids gives him his SAK and he has to open it in one hand.

Very hard thing to do. I'm not even sure it's actually possible.

Neither was MacGyver I don't think.

He used the pen to fix a fuel line in Hell Fire and didn't he swap the oil leads around while hanging on the front of the car in The Enemy Within episode?

Definitely the hot-air balloon in the episode GX-1. As they were working on it's construction, it took me a bit to realize what they were making. When I did, I was incredulous!

Yeah I watched Mybusters last night which was a trubute to MacGyver and MacGyverisms and they tried to recreate the ultra light bamboo plane using the same stuff that Mac did----and flying it off a cliff ----without live human passengers---good thing too because it crashed!!! LOL.

Id you'd like a demonstration, I'd happily oblige smile.gif

And now that you mention it, I think that is my favorite scene as well- I wore that tape OUT- everything from the tape/knife trick over the vent getting in, to the remote winch, to the dust and lasers, to the picking the lock with a SAK(with the sole appearance of the Sportsman), to the huffing on the glass and writing numbers in it- that whole scene probably takes the cake for me too. The classic caper scenario, as only MacGyver could do it.

Oh, and speaking of that, I have something to add to the Mac/M:I thread smile.gif
