Jack Dalton: Hey... are you sure this is quicksand?
MacGyver: Yeah. I'm pretty sure this is still quicksand.
Jack Dalton: Okay, all right. There's no reason to get spicy about it. I'm just asking. Drowning in quicksand... this ain't going to be fun, bro. This has got to be, like, one of the worst ways to die.
MacGyver: Well, you'll be happy to know that most people don't even die from drowning in quicksand. It's a colloid hydrogel. It's made of sand, clay, and water.
Jack Dalton: I was wrong. Drowning in quicksand while getting a science lecture, that's the worst way to die.

MacGyver: Give me your phone.
Jack Dalton: No way, man. Every time I give you my phone, I end up at the Genius bar, explaining to them why my phone is glued to a football or wired to a vacuum cleaner.
