  • Quotes

    • Magnum: How come every time there's a crummy job to be done, I'm in charge of security, but every time there's big money to be spent, or credit to be taken, you're in charge?
      Higgins: Because that is the order of the universe.

    • Magnum: One of the pleasanter aftereffects of nearly meeting your maker is a renewed sense of the value of all life; of every creature's right to realize its full potential. In fact, I was quite pleased recently when I managed to avoid stepping on an ordinary garden snail. Pleased that it could crawl on to fulfill its full garden snail potential.

    • Rita Parks: Um, do you supply a gun, or should I bring my own?
