Higgins: To the untrained eye this may appear to be just another suburban lawn. For your information, we are standing on a scientifically formulated carpet of Bahia, Kentucky Bluegrass, and an African Zoysia. One doesn't just "mow it"!

Magnum: Hi, guys!

Magnum: You were supposed to kill me?
Mr. Jansen: Nothing personal. We're only doing our job, that's all.
Mr. Harms: So, ah, no hard feelings right?!
Magnum: Wrong.

Higgins: For some reason you're being intentionally obtuse!
Magnum: Obtuse?!
Higgins: Vague!
Magnum: I know what it means Higgins!
