Here are a few more things I noticed while watching this episode:
1) When Carol is on the phone, just before the lights go out in her office, she tells someone on the phone that Chelsea is a "pekinese... golden, brown, and white"
, so it is not a dog
at all... more like a furry football!
(a little more detail for your episode page, James).
2) We do not know from this episode whether Carol's father was an ADA, like Carol, or the DA, but it was a high profile case (Lazarus) so he may actually have headed the office. In fact, when Magnum gets the info from Rick about Moody, he says that the address is the "City Prosecutor's Office". The address on the second package that Carol receives, the one containing the stuffed dog, is clearly visible as:
Ms. Carol Baldwin
City Prosecutors Office
Honolulu, Hawaii 96815
That would make Carol, and, presumably, her dad as well, city prosecutors and not district attorneys at all! Is this a flub? Has anyone ever referred to Carol specifically as a district attorney?
3) In addition to learning why Higgins left Sandhurst, we also learn in this episode who was actually responsible for the accident for which Higgins was blamed. Did you leave this out because it is a spoiler, James?
4) We learn from Higgins that Lord Binkie Smythe-White's real name is Archibald, but, for some unexplained reason, he would rather be called Binkie than Archibald, or even Archie!
