Quotes Edit

Higgins: It is eminently satisfying, Magnum, to know that as a result of this, a few heads will roll in Moscow. You know, when I was in Vienna, the Sovjets tried to recruit me as an agent. Unbelievable crude, I came home one night to find a naked woman in my bed. I knew immediately she was Russian. They use stainless steel
(taps his teeth)
Higgins: instead of gold.

Yuri Dolgof: You're a private investigator?
Magnum: Yes.
(laughs amiably while drying his hair with a towel)
Yuri Dolgof: You are wearing a swimsuit.
Magnum: Don't worry, I got a whole closet full of pants.

Magnum: Remember I told ya I didn't like getting egg on my face? Well right now, I'm wearing a whole omelet.

Magnum: Oh, come on, TC, is it too much to ask to get my slides right side up?
TC: Not a problem, not a problem, not to worry. I forgot what a nasty C.O. you can be...

Magnum: [attempting to bribe the house detective] Look, couldn't we settle this with a little green piece of paper, you know the kind with Andrew Jackson's picture on it?
