Quotes:
Major Mufta Ben-Kamal:[Major Ben-Mufta and Dr. Moffet are watching a scantily clad dancer in a nightclub] I don't understand what you Westerners see in women with such skinny bodies, in the desert a body like this would wither and die in a matter of hours.
Dr. Charles Henry Moffet:After a few hours with such a body, what would it matter?
Dr. Charles Henry Moffet:[watches the dancer intently] I want her...
Major Mufta Ben-Kamal:Ah... That will be difficult, we believe she is an American spy.
Dr. Charles Henry Moffet:Perhaps I can question her for you...
Major Mufta Ben-Kamal:I could do that... Of course, Brother Kadafi was most pleased with your exploits this afternoon against the French on behalf of our beleaguered freedom fighters in Chad. Your destruction of two French Mirage fighters will be told about in the camps of our people until the desert sand turns to water...
Dr. Charles Henry Moffet:But that's still not enough to pay for her?

Very Unique Hero, 1 March 2006
Author: AshenGrey from Baltimore, Maryland. United States

The great thing about the Airwolf series is the super-cool hero, Stringfellow Hawk. He's an ace helicopter pilot who is a cello player, art collector, and an environmentalist. He doesn't eat red meat. He's genuinely cool without any fake macho bull-crap.

I also like the way he blows away villains who really need killing, but generally spares the lives of low-end flunkies. The fact that Stringfellow does not own a television is a big bonus.

Stringfellow is proud without being arrogant. He is a thinking man's hero. Airwolf is a must-see.

It is a shame that the actor (Jan Michael Vincent) fell short of the heroic ideal of the character he played. I recall that they re-launched the show without him after he cracked up. I saw one episode, but it wasn't the same.
