Quotes Edit

(To Dr. Karen Harmon)
Higgins: The role of architect as artist has been sorely neglected. Where the painter has oils, the sculpter marble or clay, the poet words, the architect has only space - that immaterial essence that painters "suggest" and the sculpter "fills", the architect "envelops". But listen to me rattling on. How can I help you?

Magnum: Well, I'm not gonna get into a spitting contest with a snake. You hassle Karen again, anytime, anywhere, you're going to answer to me.
Eric Daniels: Excuse me, is that a threat?
Magnum: You bet. (smiles)

Magnum: I knew if he had a revolver he only had 6 shots. Course if he had an automatic he could have 7...or 8. Then he could have one of those 13 shot automatics. Or he could have two guns. Oh well....
