  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Magnum: (narrating chasing a Ferrari-joyriding Mad Buck) I was looking at several very grim possibilities involving the destruction of Buck, the Ferrari, innocent bystanders, and any combination thereof.

    • Magnum: (reflecting on Vietnam) Well... it's not that we're old, it's... just that we're not young anymore.

    • Magnum: (narrating) You know, there's some quotations that would make good rules to live by. For instance, "never drive behind an old man wearing a hat," or another, "it's always brightest just before the storm." If I'd've remembered that one, I'd've really been on my guard, because the afternoon it all started, was a truly beautiful day.
