Added DiffLines:

** When Magnum accuses him of really being Robin Masters, Higgins has an epic belly laugh.


Added DiffLines:

* FreudianSlip: On occasion, Higgins refers to Robin Masters's possessions as his own. Towards the end of the series, Magnum uses this as justification for his suspicion that Higgins really is Robin.


Added DiffLines:

* WithFriendsLikeThese: As strong as their bonds are, Rick and T.C. are frequently irritated with Magnum and for good reason. He constantly owes them money (helicopter expenses, bar tabs, etc.), drags them into his cases to do assorted work, borrows their belongings (sometimes damaging or losing them in the process), and has a habit of not making good on promises or debts.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: Creator/BruceForsyth once appeared, appropriately enough playing a game show host (ironically, the same year his only American game, ''Series/HotStreak'', both went on the air ''and'' got cancelled, lasting 4 months).

* BlackBestFriend: T.C.--who is the [[OnlySaneMan most normal and likable of the group.]] He is also {{Badass}} enough to pull a ScaryBlackMan on occasion.

* LeaveNoWitnesses: The main reason why [[spoiler: Wendy Wright in "Distant Relative"]] and [[spoiler: Marti Jensen in "L.A."]] are murdered, as they both had witnessed a crime being committed, whether knowingly or not. Even worse, [[spoiler: Magnum was with both of them right before they were killed.]]
