Added DiffLines:

* Jim "Mac" Bonnick gets one in "On the Fly", doubling a bit as a PetTheDog moment given his usual behavior, saving Magnum's life by shooting the [[spoiler: fake Mexican federal agent]] about to shoot him. Then he makes a pretty badass escape from the episode's villain and his men in an airplane. [[spoiler: Unfortunately he gets shot right after and Magnum has to take the controls himself.]]

* The last ten seconds of the the third-season premiere, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7vW1oEKP1k "Did You See the Sunrise?"]] One of Magnum's friends has been killed by a car-bomb meant for Magnum; the last thing he said before starting the car was a suggestion that he, Magnum, and a third person with them drive up to a lookout point and watch the sunrise. At the end of the episode Magnum contrived to be alone with the killer, a Soviet agent known as "Ivan." After a mildly civilized discussion Ivan, who has diplomatic immunity and is on his way out of the country, walks away, passing Magnum so that the two men have their backs to each other. After a pause, Magnum asks a question:

* Magnum ''finally'' [[ThisIsUnforgivable standing up for himself]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and calling Pamela Higgins out]] in "Novel Connection" because no one trusts him. Her bullying him over his gruff appearance and constantly calling him a bum basically sets him off on a tirade- and Higgins doesn't help matters.

** This is so awesome that [[WesternAnimation/{{Archer}} Sterling Archer]] set a up a similar scene when he went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge in one episode. As in set up a camera and filmed it to show over and again to his co-workers. And despite ''Archer'' doing its usual mockery of action and spy tropes, it was ''still'' awesome.

-->'''[[SmugSnake Pamela]]''': If Jessica needs help, then you're hired... for [[TakeThat muscle...]] [[ShootTheShaggyDog cleanup...]] whatever.
-->'''Magnum''': ''Muscle?'' [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne ''MOPUP?'']]
-->'''Higgins''': Magnum...
-->'''Magnum''': [[BigNo No!]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Higgins, that's it! I have had it! NO MORE ABUSE! Now, I have tried to put up with it because I thought there might be a real problem here! But if there is, nobody wants to talk about it! Amy won't talk! Joan has absolutely nothing to say! And you, Miss Bates, have never even offered a reason why somebody would want to kill you!]] [[AccentuateTheNegative I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO'S BEEN SHOT AT!!!]]
-->'''Higgins''': [[WhatTheHellHero Magnum, sit down and be calm.]]

** And Thomas Magnum, the hero of a tv detective show in 1982, when heroes still didn't ''do'' morally questionable things on television, turns around with something ''wrong'' with his eyes, and fires a single shot, with the episode ending on a freeze-frame of the muzzle flash.

It may be the greatest moment this troper, born in 1957, has ever seen on television. And then the screen goes black and the words "Executive Producer[=:=] Donald P. Bellisario" appear, and that made it the Crowning Moment of Awesome for ''him'', and makes this troper forgive anything he's done wrong since then, even the end of ''Quantum Leap.''
