Juliett Higgins: [after Robin's yacht is hijacked] Magnum, they're getting away.
Thomas Magnum: I couldn't stop them and help you.
Juliett Higgins: I'm fine. I'm just nicked in the arm.
Thomas Magnum: [seeing the wound] That's not a nick. The bullet could have hit your artery. We need to dress that immediately.

Oh, my Gawd!

The song is "Lil Bebe" by DaniLeigh and Lil Baby. The episode was so boring, I resorted to Shazam. Wouldn't Higgins have been in agony with an open wound in salt water? Just sayin. I hadn't watched this show in months, and it hasn't improved. With a cast this good, they really need to pick up the pace--or something. Isn't it a bit early for a flashback episode? But it's a pleasant enough time-passer.

Somebody asked about the name of the boat. Riddle me this: I assume it was named for Dudley Sutton's character on Lovejoy, by way of J. M. Barrie, of course. If you still don't get it, maybe you should ask Walt Disney? Magnum is the image of a grown-up Peter Pan, and his crew are the Lost Boys. Does that make Perdita Wendy? Barrie also wrote "The Admirable Crichton," which is about a group of people stranded on an island. But the reference here seems to be closer to "Swept Away." All right, put down your pencils and submit your answers.
