A classic, legendary episode with a shocking denouement. This episode has it all - action, humor, drama, mystery, great characters, and a great story. Higgins' half-brother (played by John Hillerman), the hardscrabble Irish priest Paddy McGuinness, steals the show. The scene where Higgins visits the run-down "Low Surf Motel" (with Bellisario's only cameo on the show) is priceless. A wonderful finale for Season Three.

Okay, need some eagle eyes here. I was just watching this one on Sleuth tonight, and in the scene where Clarence the boxer tells TC and TM that he wants proof of his wife's infidelity so he can divorce her first, WHAT IS THE LOGO on TC's hat? To me it looks very much like the black bird of the Atlanta Falcons logo.

Can anyone else see it any better to identify it?

One of my favorite episodes features a "shocking" flub. When Magnum and TC go to the Gym to meet Clarence (Magnum's boxer-client) to give him a report on his wife's infidelity, TC is standing next to Magnum without a hat on. There is no hat in sight, not in his hand, etc. The camera turns and focuses on the boxer and when they turn back to Magnum and TC, TC has an Atlanta Falcons hat on.

Good one IH!

I actually remember noticing this when I "revisited" this episode last year, but I didn't write it down, then forgot about it.

As Sam mentioned in this other thread, the "Low Surf Hotel" where the meeting of Higgins and Father Paddy McGuiness takes place is the Hotel Renew. (gm link) The lobby shots and rooftop scene (and Higgins driving up to the hotel) all appear to be at the same hotel.

Here's some links to illustrate the main hotels seen in the background:
Waikiki Banyan tower 2
Pacific Beach Hotel (on right)
Queen Kapiolani Hotel

Three in one:
Marriott Waikiki Beach Resort Kealohilani tower on left
Pacific Beach Hotel in middle
Marriott Waikiki Beach Resort Paoakalani tower on right

(notice the shot set in the lower right picture in this first collage)

And the valley in which Father Paddy McGuiness' Northern Ireland church, "The Crozier of St Patrick" is situated is the same one which reminds TC "of the one north of Quan Loi"

The valley is known as Kaaawa (or Kaʻaʻawa, or Kualoa because of the owner) and is owned by Kualoa Ranch. (wiki link)

Here's a nice picture.

Thanks RC,

In 2003 my wife and I were having a cocktail at Tiki's,Waikiki Beach Hotel.It was a bartender there who told us of the location.
Nice job of laying it out,very easy to see from your pics.

I found another picture of the lobby.



and one of the front desk.It seems the more things change,the more they stay the same. :lol:

Hi RC,

Hollywood is fickle so I guess Don tries to keep his hand in the hotel business.You just never know when you'll need a job.

First trip was in 88 but haven't been back since 06.Maybe 14 or 15 in between.
