* The final scene of "Going Home" crossed with {{Tearjerker}}, where Magnum visits the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to say goodbye to his half-brother Joey, who was killed in Vietnam, while Joe Cocker's rendition of Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" plays, perfectly setting the mood, especially when Magnum says "Goodbye, Joey" in the end.

** Zeus and Apollo are devastated by Higgins leaving and just lie there on the beach, so Magnum tries to cheer them up by getting them to chase him. They don't move a muscle, but later, they begin following him around the estate and refuse to leave his side. Magnum is both irritated and sympathetic.

** To get an idea of how much they've warmed to each other, compare earlier episodes like "J. 'Digger' Doyle" (where Magnum and Higgins ''really'' don't get along) to later ones like "I Never Wanted to Go to France, Anyway...", where at the end, Higgins, without hesitation, tries going back in to rescue Magnum from the [[spoiler: fire set by the villain. It's only when Magnum's shown to have already escaped that Higgins stops.]]

* "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" is one of those times where Higgins doesn't even try to hide his fondness for Magnum. Saying he's leaving the estate for good, he gives Magnum one of his belongings (a popsicle stick bridge).
-->'''Higgins:''' Please take it as a gift.\\
'''Magnum:''' But I don't have anything to give you.\\
'''Higgins:''' You have been my friend.

* "Rembrandt's Girl": Despite being trapped in a bank vault for the better part of a weekend, Magnum and Susan finding they have a lot in common and eventually falling asleep adorably together definitely counts. The great chemistry (and, at the end, unique laughs) of Creator/TomSelleck and Creator/CarolBurnett is at least partly why.
