MacGyver “Pilot” (part 3 of 4)
Once MacGyver climbs down the elevator shaft to the next level, he finds himself in a corridor which has caved in at one end. He wanders around looking manly for a while, then hears a tapping sound coming from the pile of wreckage. He uses a nearby shoe to tap on a girder at the top. He hears an answering tap, and figures out that there’s someone else down there, but the girder is in the way.
He radios up to the guys in the computer room and explains the situation. In response, he hears a slurping noise, caused by Gant taking a sip of water. “Water…” MacGyver muses. I know, it’s so easy to forget about the existence of water unless someone reminds you, isn’t it?
He runs back down the corridor and finds a firehose, which he brings up to the girder. He then cuts the end off, and ties a knot in the hose before burying it under the girder, and then he turns on the water. This makes the hose swell up, which lifts the girder up by several inches, enabling MacGyver to push it out of the way, and is it just me or is that nonsensical?
He falls down onto the other side of the rubble, where there are a bunch of people waiting to be rescued (including that Spencer chick from before). Everyone shambles off back towards the elevator shaft, which apparently now contains a rope ladder that they can climb up.
As MacGyver talks with Colson over the radio, Spencer overhears him mentioning Marlowe and Stubens, and she offers to take him to them. MacGyver tries to make her turn back, on account of she’s a nice pretty lady, but she insists.
