I just watched this episode on Sleuth. I just found out that Claudia is Larry Manetti's real wife. I think they met when they both were on Battlestar Galatica in the late seventies. Their son was born in 1980.
Great little tidbit, loved this episode. Loved the end when Rick asks Magnum if he was trying to get him shot. Magnum tells him I knew what I was doing, just trust me. :)

I thought I read that Larry's wife Nancy Decarl was on Battlestar Galactica,
but now I can't find it.
They met before she appeared on the episode "Computer Date" because their son was born in October or November of 1980.

Hey, thanks sophia. I didn't realize their son was born in 1980.

Ok, "Mac"s ID badge clearly says "Mac [space] Reynolds" in this episode. I always thought his last name was "MacReynolds" (first name unknown), with a nickname of "Mac". Based on this ID badge, are we to assume that his first name is "Mac" and his last name is "Reynolds"? Or would a military ID badge break out the "Mac" and "Reynolds" in spelling out the last name?

I don't know why his badge is like that, but I always thought his first
name was Mac.
I went back and
I think you are right about Mac being his nickname.
Never realized that one.
Oh well, you learn something new here everyday.

I think his name WAS MacReynolds, simply because when someone referred to him it was always as Lt. MacReynolds said together like it was one word (notables include Carol and Maggie). Also, to me, it would sound pretty strange if you called someone "Lt. Mack Reynolds". Why wouldn't you just call him "Lt. Reynolds"?

But then again, they always called Colonel Greene "Colonel Buck Greene"

:?

I'm totally contradicting myself, but my story is that MacReynolds is the name, and I'm stickin' to it!

Love the denouement in this one. Higgins is relieved to find out that Lady Ashley (whom he hasn't seen in "decades") is no longer "built like the Prince Albert Memorial" (LOL), and has aged in a similiar manner as him (i.e. she's put on a little weight). How surprised he must have been then, when in a couple of years (in "Echoes of the Mind"), she returns and sports the body of a runway model (and is about 6 inches taller)*! :shock:

* This is, of course, due to "Lady Ashley" being played by two different actresses, but still! ;)

One other thing, T.C. is seen wearing a hawaiian shirt in this episode. For the life of me, I can't recall seeing him wear a hawaiian shirt in any other episode. How about you guys?

Thanks for clearing up my confusion. I thought there were two different Lady Ashleys, but I was not certain that the two episodes were about the same character given how different they look. :wink:

Actually James,

I took it a bit differently that since she had the "travelling companion, Paolo" Higgins realized that it was pointless to be in shape to impress her and said "To heck with this", since she was already with another man.

Yeah, I got that Doc. I was just being ironically humorous. You know, sardonic-like*. ;)

* An "inside" joke, addressed to Doc.

Should never try to surf Magnum Mania in the process of doing billing.
