I'd recommend one of the best Higgins-centric episodes
Letter to a Duchess
While Magnum prepares for an annual surf-ski race, Higgins has his hands
full hiding the beautiful Lady Wilkerson from two shady pursuers. Smitten by
the maiden in distress, Higgins sends her a letter expressing his feelings,
but she mistakenly thinks the amorous words are from Magnum. It quickly
becomes a case of romance on the run when the duchess is kidnapped and the
two "Romeos" must spring into action to save her.
