INT. THORNTON'S OFFICE - DAY
MacGyver, Carrie and Thornton are awaiting Halley's arrival. Halley arrives. He remembers to face MacGyver and Carrie.
Congratulations. Thanks to the three of you we kept four kilos of pure coke off the streets. A street value of $15 million. We nailed Nicholas Alexander at his office last night. We caught him emptying the contents of his safe into his briefcase. We've been after him for the last five years. They all smile. They're pleased with their work.
One less dealer sellin' junk to kids.
The bad news is that for every dealer we arrest there are ten more waiting to take his place.
Thornton accidentally knocks something off his desk. It makes a loud noise when it hits the floor.
MacGyver's startled and jumps. Thornton's surprised.
Can you hear me?
Yes. When I woke up this morning I could hear.
ALL EXCEPT MACGYVER
That's great, MacGyver. Congratulations.
I'll never again take my hearing for granted.
I'm happy for you. Congratulations.
I never realized how much I missed and needed to hear all those little sounds we hear in the background but don't pay much attention to. I missed hearing the doorbell, the phone and especially voices. It was hard work to figure out what people were saying by using speechreading and their expressions. I never realized how hard it was until I had to do it.
