Quotes[]

Marge: Great costume!
Magnum: Oh, this isn't a costume.
Nolan: Really?! You wear that shirt in public?

Higgins: Magnum, I'm very busy placating the guests. Now, will you please send Rick and T.C. away and assume the character of a reasonably competent security person? Only you and I will know you're acting.

Magnum: Higgins, cut it out! The playacting is for the guests.
Higgins: Higgins? My ingnorant lad, that was Richard III. G.B. Shaw begged me to do the Pygmalion role, but, of course, I have no time for comedy.
Magnum: Higgins, come on. Stop kidding around and get back to bed!
Higgins: Back! Back, rogue! "Onward for God, England, and Saint George!"
