His name is MacGyver. He can fix anything. He could fix a computer with a hairpin and a piece of duct tape. - Pete Thornton

A paperclip can be a wondrous thing. More times than I can remember, one of these has gotten me out of a tight spot. - MacGyver

Recs for MacGyverisms from first season episodes for the pervertible square on my kink bingo card

Pilot epsiode

Mac uses chocolate bars to stop an acid leak. "To you they're milk chocolate. To sulphuric acid, it's lactose and sucrose, C12H22O11, disaccharides. The acid will react with the sugar to form an elemental carbon and a thick gummy residue."
He also uses a paper clip to disarm a missile.

Barbara: "Don't tell me you know how to make a bomb out of a stick of chewing gum"

Mac: "Why, have you got some?"

Golden Triangle

MacGyver creates an irritating smoke screen with a bamboo pipe, ash, alcohol and a car’s exhaust.

Thief of Budapest

MacGyver uses salt combined with sugar and weed killer to create dynamite with a battery acid trigger.

Trumbo's World

MacGyver makes an arc welder out of a generator, some jumper cables, and two coins. He also uses fertilizer, plant bark and a drip or two of acid to make nitromannite to make a bomb.


MacGyver uses the spring from a ballpoint pen as a replacement for a throttle linkage spring in a truck's engine.

He fixes a blown fuse by joining the two contacts with a foil gum wrapper.

The Gauntlet

Duct tape seals a bullet hole in hot air balloon and makes a periscope using bus mirrors.

The Prodigal

Mac used cleaning fluid, mothballs, a telescope, pulley, rope and metal rod to make a harpoon launcher.

Target MacGyver

MacGyver pinecones and pine pitch as grenades.


Mac uses a gum wrapper as fishing lure


Mac creates a motor out of a battery pack, some rubber bands and an electric whisk.

The enemy within

Mac uses two metal candleholders, a floor mat, and a power cord to make a defibrillator.

Ugly Duckling

MacGyver uses a cactus as a makeshift battery to power a radio.

Slow Death

MacGyver makes a lie detector out of a sphygmomanometer, a wire and an alarm clock.

Prisoner of Conscience

“…caulking compound mixed with the proper hardening agent makes a unique version of Russian Crazy Glue." - MacGyver
