Quotes Edit

Higgins: I say, did someone die?
Magnum: What?
Higgins: You're almost wearing a suit. I should think the only occasion for which you would do that would be a funeral.

Higgins: The last time I saw Penelope, I was considerably ... different looking.
Magnum: Well, so was she. You're probably not the only one who got fat.

Magnum: Normally, the chance to make Higgins sweat would have seemed like a lot of fun. Today, it barely raised a smile.

(To Magnum)
T.C.: What's with this ethical madness?

(To Magnum)
Rick: This is a private club! Unless you've got membership money pal I suggest you leave, and leave now!
