Magnum, P.I. mistake picture

The Ugliest Dog in Hawaii - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: The car chase from the gas station to the banana plantation happens with the mobsters driving two cars passing as one. The first car is a Ford Sedan with single headlights and front and back license plate 3F-2890, but the car speeding up in most of the shots driving through the long roads is a similar model with double headlights, different grill and without a front license plate (7F-7594 is the back one, but you may need to freeze-frame for this last detail).

The Ugliest Dog in Hawaii - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: The position of TC's chopper on the helipad changes depending on the angle - in the wide angle with the camera pointing at the building, the skids are partially off the pad, they are within the boundaries in the other angle - and Magnum, the dog inspector and the dog hop on the chopper from a much larger platform in asphalt.

Of Sound Mind - S3-E12

Higgins: How fiendishly deceptive of you, Magnum. I could have sworn I was hearing the emasculation of a large rodent. To my great surprise, I see the sounds are emanating from what I thought was a harmless musical instrument.
Magnum: Cute Higgins, real cute.
Higgins: Why Magnum? Why do this terrible thing?
Magnum: Higgins, I'll have you know I used to be very good. I was the second best sax player in my High School band!
Higgins: Well, how many sax players were there?!
Magnum: ...Anyway. I just saw this in a pawn shop window and thought I'd like to try and get my chops back.
Higgins: May I suggest that your "chops" are irretrievable.
Magnum: Higgins, did you come here just to abuse me!?
