* BerserkButton: "The Arrow That is Not Aimed": Higgins ''really'' loses it when Magnum's found to have dog repellent in his possession yet again, leading to the DrawSwordDrawBlood below.



* DrawSwordDrawBlood: In the tag of one episode, Magnum's being a pain to Higgins, and mentions this trope in reference to Higgins unsheathing a katana. Then Higgins gets this crazy gleam in his eye and says "I know."

* ADayInTheLimelight: The eponymous Hall of Records clerk in "Ms. Jones", who hires Magnum to find her missing husband.



* MeaningfulName: Discussed by Carol InUniverse regarding her mentor Judge Hannibal Kearns in "Death of the Flowers":
-->'''Carol:''' Thomas, you know Hannibal, the other Hannibal, [[spoiler: he committed suicide rather than surrender to the Roman army.]]
** Subverted later when Magnum determines that Judge Kearns' [[spoiler: [[NeverSuicide murder was made to look like a suicide.]]]]



* [[PerFumigation Perfumigation]]: "Patchismo" cologne for Magnum, unfortunately, in "The Legacy of Garwood Huddle".



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The beginning of "Laura" is the only time we see the title character's babysitter in the episode, talking on the phone (and paying no attention) while Laura is seen leaving the apartment. Considering that Laura eventually [[spoiler: ends up murdered]], you would think said babysitter would at least be ''mentioned'' again.

* ReliablyUnreliableGuns: In "A Girl Named Sue", Magnum says he "bent the firing pin" of his gun hammering his way out of the locked storeroom. If one considered it to be a Colt MKIV/Series 70 9 millimeter (the model in real life, as opposed to the .45 it was called on the show), this would be absolutely impossible to do.

* BaseballEpisode: There's an American football episode in season 2 ("One More Summer"), a tennis episode in season 3 ("Mixed Doubles"), and a softball episode in season 4 ("Squeeze Play"). The last one is noteworthy in that Robin Masters bets a year's use of his estate on the game [[spoiler: and Magnum's team loses. The bet is rendered invalid in the end, though.]]
