Episode Guide



Chisel is the 9th episode of Season 1 in the remake version of the MacGyver.


With only a chisel and matchbook, MacGyver and team must defend themselves the U.S. embassy workers in Latvia from extremists who are attempting to retrieve their leader. Also, Bozer faces a big decision now that he knows who Mac really is.


Mac and the team head to Latvia to capture Janis Lapa, the leader of a terrorist organization. However, Janis sends an S.O.S out to the other members, who chase Mac, Janis, and the team to Latvia's U.S. Embassy. The team must protect the embassy from the terrorists for six hours. Meanwhile, Bozer, still upset at MacGyver, is held at the Phoenix Foundation to be assessed by Thornton. After learning about Bozer's prosthetic-making abilities, Thornton allows Mac to give Bozer a job at the Phoenix Foundation, which Bozer accepts.




Riley Davis: In prison, we call that a nark. Someone who's cooperated with Five-O. This is a reference to the show Hawaii Five-O.


Jack Dalton: WNo, no, wait. Hold on, don't tell me. Let me guess what it is this time. Uh... Chinese separatists, city of Madrid, with the candlestick.
Patricia Thornton: I thought we agreed not to use any Clue references during our briefings.
Jack Dalton: I would never agree to something like that. Milton Bradley was an American hero.

Jack Dalton: Well, just have him keep trying to kill you and I'll follow the sign of the shots.
MacGyver: Okay, I'll try not to die before you get here.

Riley Davis: In prison, we call that a nark. Someone who's cooperated with five-O.
