MacGyverisms

  1. Pulled bomb pin and motion sensor with fireman's badge
  2. Used walkie talkie magnet to prevent bomb circuit from connecting

Goofs: The shadow of the camera can be seen on the white wall (lower left side of the screen) as Mac walks out of a room at the newspaper office.

  • Obviously fake list of newspaper employees --- the first of three entries gives "Santa Luisa" as the town, then the second entry also has Santa Luisa and lists "1117" in the street address, and then the third address says "2117" in the street address.

 

"Oh I've heard about you! You're the guy who does the whatchamacallits, you know, MacGyverisms; turns one thing into another?"
