Albert was forgetful. While it didn't annoy Angus he nevertheless was always coming up with something to get Albert out of trouble.
Like the time Albert forgot the map he was supposed to use as Angus's co-pilot on a cross-country car trip. Using a paper clip, toothpicks and a beany cap propeller, somehow Angus was able to construct a compass to guide them on their western journey and get them safely to the "other" coast.
Then there was the time Angus was supposed to go grocery shopping with a list prepared by Albert. But Albert forgot to give the list to Angus. However, when Angus returned from the grocery store he had everything on the list. "How in the world did you do that?" asked Albert. "Carbon paper" replied Angus. "You think I could trust you to remember to give me the list? I made a copy."
Angus always came through. And he never belittled his good friend Albert, no matter how forgetful he got.
One day, Albert and Angus decided to go on a little trip to Vail Colorado and get in a little skiing. They packed all the necessities: winter clothes, sweaters, toiletries, a book or two, their smart phones and iPads.
As they unpacked in their room in the lodge on the mountainside, Albert realized he'd forgotten the charger for their iPads and phones. "Damn" said Albert. "Looks like I've screwed up again." "Don't worry" said Angus, smiling. "I think I have a remedy." And with that he went to the kitchen fetched two forks, tied them together and stuck one end into the iPad charging slot.
"What the heck are you going to do?" said Albert. "I'm going to plug the other end into that electrical outlet" replied Angus. "Oh that's supposed to be bad luck" exclaimed Albert. "In fact it could be fatal."
"Relax" said Angus. "Angus MacGyver has been gerrymandering thousands of things over seven seasons. What's one more? Now watch this" he said as he leaned down to the electrical outlet.
And that my friends is when MacGyver got cancelled...literally.
