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.

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

This is a really difficult question.

1. The Bamboo Ultralight Plane - Legend of Holy Rose
2. Flying Machine - Wasteland
3. Periscope from Rear view mirror and compact - The Gauntlet
4. Made bomb with camera flash - The Gauntlet
5. Defused bomb by vaporizing mercury with current - Hell Week

There were so many great ones, this list doesn't even do justice

EDIT: Nearly forgot the Explosive Nitroglycerin Paste in "For Love or Money"

The one where he took off his pants. Forget what it was and what it accomplished, but who cares? biggrin.gif

To answer seriously, I'd say the tear gas hot water bottle from Blowout was too cool.

He does that again in Deadly Silents.

Making a canon from a muffler in Three For The Road is also one of my favourites.

You’ve all come up with so good ones! The way he used the map in “The Gauntlet” is absolutely fabulous. And it’s so cool how he could turn the situation and use the gas that was supposed to kill them in “The Ten Percent Solution” to instead save them.

I like the ones when he uses simple things, like someone’s earrings or his precious duct tape. Especially I like when Mac stops the bomb from going off with his ticket in “Phoenix Under Siege”. His situation gets so hilarious; should he take his ticket and follow his grandpa to watch the ice hockey game, but risk blowing up the building, or just leave the ticket there and miss the game? happy.gif

What always gets me about that particular MacGyverism is the force at which the chair breaks through the wall does not match the speed or force the moving conveyer belt would generate. wink.gif

I guess you could argue that the pressure/force would have built up as the conveyer belt pulled harder and harder until the wall gave way.

Although I personally think the belt would have just stopped moving. Those belts only work on tension against the drive rollers I think so if something obstructs it the belt stops but the drive rollers can keep turning.

My favorite was in the pilot episode. Chocolate bar sealing an acid leak. It's always the first one I remember.

This is the one that I always remember first, too. Although, I probably would have eaten all the chocolate before I reached the leaking acid tank.

My favorite was in the pilot episode. Chocolate bar sealing an acid leak. It's always the first one I remember.

This is the one that I always remember first, too. Although, I probably would have eaten all the chocolate before I reached the leaking acid tank.

I still love the Human Factors MaGyverisms. The newspaper and the lense to make a scope, using the dust & jacket for the hand scanner. The rope for crossing the floor to the entrance & the magnets in the paper, setting them alight and throwing them on the heat seaking drones. Marvellous! laugh.gif

I really liked how he used the flare pistol to escape the small submarine after being locked in it by the villains in "Deep Cover" (Season 5 Ep. 17). Also, another favorite of mine is in "The Gauntlet" (Season 1 Ep. 4) when he slides the map under the door and then pushes the key out on the opposite side, landing on the map. He then pulls the map out from under the door with the key on it. While nowhere near as dangerous as some of the other ideas, I always thought this one demonstrated how powerful an idea can be when thinking in such a way to solve a problem that may sometimes seem difficult.

Those are both great MacG.gif In fact, I just posted the one with the map as one of my favorites too.

Totally agree. Those are the types of MacGyverisms which I like too.

One of my all time favorite MacGyverisms is from Lost Love where MacGyver is testing the security system of the Ming Dragon. The security guy says "They can't avoid the lasers because they can't see them" to which MacGyver grabs a hand full of soap powder out of a nearby cleaning cart and throws it into the laser making the beam visible and responds "They can now." and proceeds to climb between the now visible laser beams.

For me that scene is iconic to the show. Dressed in bomber jacket and light tan trousers, taking a simple every day item and using it imaginatively to overcome a situation without even blinking an eye.

I see that Macgyverism the same way. Some of the ideas that didn't directly involve any villains or immediate danger are just as important to me as the ones that did because of the way they demonstrate Mac's way of thinking so clearly. Of course, RDA wearing the classic outfit always helps too MacG.gif
