What's funny to me in the opening scene is that Taphie saying "Five years of high school for nothing." is supposed to denote an airhead personality, but technically the joke only works in places where there are middle/junior high schools with grades going to 6-9, etc.. In places without them, high schools usually go from grades 8-12, probably making a few people wonder what the joke is. :P

I think this is a fun episode but have a question I'm hoping someone can clear up for me.

I see at least 2 scenes in this one that are also in the opening show introduction which started in season 1. How can this be?

Higgins in the beginning picking up the rubber chicken when talking to Magnum about the softball game and Robin and Buzzes bet.

TC playing first base and smacking his glove.

These are both definitely in the intro which started after the first few episodes of season 1. Were they shot way back then and simply re used in these episodes? Or perhaps were also used in other, earlier episodes? Not sure but just confuses me time wise.

Anyway, fun episode. Love the bet, the Robin scenes, Buzz and his Buzzetes (wow!) and Mickey cracked me up as well. I love seeing Magnum in action, you can tell he was a stud player! And making Higgins the coach and Rick an awful player was hilarious as well. I love all the sports themed episodes other than season 3's Basket Case with basketball playing Willie which I find to be awful.

If you saw this on TV, it's probably a syndicated print (with Magnum font), which uses the intro from I believe season seven, with the scenes you describe above. :) Having watched it in syndication for many years, it's still a little weird to see scenes in the intros on DVD that I never remember from before. :P
