"I just miss HARM... that tall handsome all-American hero with the 40-Kilowatt smile, oh-so-hot-in-a-uniform bod,
sexy laugh, drown-in-me eyes, protect-me-forever arms, truth-n-justice heart, and cocky
but slightly clueless jet-jockey personality.... *SIGH* If it weren't for Harm, I wouldn't have been here since the beginning,
making friends, having fun, debating, speculating, etc." The Chief
Funny JAG Moments -- SammyB, 20:23:49 09/30/07 Sun
I've been having a JAGathon this evening with watching my season 4 dvd and I've been having a great laugh at certain moments such as Buds and Harriet trying to get Bud into his santa suit, the Admiral playing with the robot, Chloe mentioning Mac's fantasies to Harm. Mac's comment about 'Mind if I strip it down?' 'huh?' 'your pistol? mind if I clean it?' (lol my pervy mind). Plus there are great moments in earlier and later seasons. I love the sceane from 'What If' where they are arguing in court and mac goes 'Your honour he didn't make the bed in two years' and when they are at the house 'I could sell tickets to this museam of adolecene' and from season one 'You want me to put in my report that we were chasing little green men sir?' What are your favourite moments?
"I need another wife like my camel needs pants" - then the look on Harm's face when he tells Mac he can't leave her behind. - Black Jet - Season 4 (NT) -- chris k, 21:24:58 09/30/07 Sun
Of course I love all the Harm and Mac scenes. However some of the earlier scenes with Bud are hysterical. In the episode Vanished all the Bermuda Triangle talk. When Bud made the symbol of a triangle with his hand when they first got on the boat, and Harm teasing Bud about a secret Navy vortex that sucks ships and planes like"rubber duckies". There are so many scenes in that episode. (NT) -- Eileen, 21:28:43 09/30/07 Sun
Not to mention Bud's secret password: "STUD" LOL And Harm's line "I peeked...twice". (NT) -- JAG Junkie (Ronda)--just watched Vanished yesterday, 22:10:14 09/30/07 Sun
And Harm "going along" with the secretive UFO watchers by enticing them with top secret access at the Pentagon "beyond the purple water cooler"! LOL When JAG writers were good, they were GOOD! (NT) -- The Chief, 10:25:18 10/01/07 Mon
Don't forget Bud telling the girl at the archives that he and Harriet are researching the USS Horny... (NT) -- JAGNikJen, 14:41:37 10/01/07 Mon
Ooops that was for Ghost Ship, not Vanished. Sorry - it's been a rough couple of weeks. (NT) -- JAGNikJen (the long-suffering), 14:47:25 10/01/07 Mon
I have another moment that had me almost wetting myself with laughter with the episode 'Silent Service' (I'm watching it right now) when the master cheif was explaining to Mac how to use the head that was a priceless moment.. And then there was Harm's conversation with Bud when Bud asks him what's it like to be on a sub and Harm tells him that when he goes home to remove all of his fresh fruit and vegetables, but oil in the air conditioning and sleeping on a shelve in his wardrobe. (NT) -- SammyB, 22:28:48 09/30/07 Sun
There's a season ten episode where Cresswell says something about JAG being like working in an institution. That cracked Mary (of the numbers) and me up when we were watching it at Judi's. Bud singing Delilah was pretty funny. Also when Harm and Mac are in a courtroom overseas and he says if he messes up protocol for her to just kick him. They say something in court and he just can't keep quiet. After he says his piece he sits back down and Mac kicks him in the shins. LOL! (NT) -- Theresa, 22:33:57 09/30/07 Sun
That second one is from "Innocence", Theresa. (just watched it recently) (NT) -- The Chief, 10:26:54 10/01/07 Mon
Yeah baby when Bud tells Tiner to get his own pregnant wife and AJ interrupts then holds up a snow globe, tells tiner this is a man's brain, then shakes it and says this is a man's brain during fatherhood. (NT) -- chris k, 22:39:25 09/30/07 Sun
I also crack up during Silent Service, when the Master Chief is trying to explain to Mac on how to use the "head" LOL. (It looks like MAE was having a hard time trying to not bust out laughing). I also like when she chews out the Petty Officer, and then turns around and gives Harm the death look. (NT) -- jagfanincalif, 23:00:06 09/30/07 Sun
The funniest scene in all ten years, INMO, was the scene from the two-parter "Boomerang" when Harm and Mic "bust" Bud's jaw--Patrick played that scene to comedic perfection!! (NT) -- highplainswoman, 06:30:50 10/01/07 Mon
Mac defending the dog, followed by the real life Judge Advocate General (RADM Don Guter) telling AJ he wouldn't take his job for anything! (NT) -- Janlaw, 08:20:56 10/01/07 Mon
What about the scene in "Rogue" when Harm meets up with his old buddy, Raglan, at the bar and Raglan lifts Harm's wallet during their hand shake. Raglan thinks he's got it all going on, but when he opens his own wallet, there's nothing in it but a note that says "arrest this man" in Harm's handwriting LOL (at least, I THINK that's what happens! LOL) (NT) -- The Chief (also, I love how gorgeous Harm looks in that scene in the leather jacket and the soft lighting... YUM!), 10:30:51 10/01/07 Mon
In "Close Quarters"Harm is helping a veteran (Ossie Davis), hte vet has no where to go-H&M getting on the elevator at Jag HQ. & M is talking to H & H says I got it taken care of & Mac then says "He's on your couch". Just the way she says it cracks me up. (NT) -- Jagcharmed2, 13:52:59 10/01/07 Mon
I also love the scene(can't remember what episode) when Mac figures out that Bud and Harriett are "hot bunking" and Harm is clueless. the way Bud and Harriett walk in and Harm asks "what is with these two"? then Mac does her little detective work, and then tells Harm "Pay up Flyboy" When Harm responds "you're good" my mind wanders!! (NT) -- Eileen, 14:49:41 10/01/07 Mon
Actually, Harm says 'he's good for it' as he sees someone he wants to talk to about a case and takes off. That is, of course, if I am remembering correctly. (NT) -- JAGNikJen (--foggy brained), 14:59:13 10/01/07 Mon
And if I'm not remembering correctly, then my apologies... (NT) -- JAGNikJen ~ who wouldn't mind crawling into bed and watching it just because..., 15:02:10 10/01/07 Mon
Yes I think you are right, he does say "he's good for it". Although I thought maybe when she figures it out he said "you're good". Maybe just wishful thinking on my part. I will definitely have to watch it again. Do you remember the name of the episode? (NT) -- Eileen, 18:30:38 10/01/07 Mon
it's from season 3 but for the life of me I can't remember the title it's from the second half of the season. I'll have a look in a moment and see what episode it was. (NT) -- SammyB, 18:43:36 10/01/07 Mon
he does 'you're good' to Mac when she figures it out - it's all just in the order of the dialogue - It's just when she tells him to pay up he says (to quote it properly this time), "I'm good for it..." I don't know if there's anything more, like 'see ya' when he takes off... but there you have it. I still want to crawl in my bed and watch, watch, watch... sigh... (NT) -- JAGNikJen, 19:44:55 10/01/07 Mon
No one has mentioned the Code Blue scene? When the lady says "I haven't got anything you haven't seen!" and he say " I can honestly say I have never seen that before" or something to that effect. Then she says "get back down there and don't come up until you give me double digits!" LOL! I loved that. And from Retreat Hell "Sir, have you considered and MRI?" And Harm to Bud "I'm losing brain cells every minute" (NT) -- Shell, 23:31:06 10/01/07 Mon
There are a lot of funny moments in 'Yeah Baby' (inside) -- SammyB, 10:47:36 10/02/07 Tue
Mac's face in Retreat Hell when it looks like he's going to manually check her bra size. LOL! (NT) -- Theresa, 11:44:43 10/02/07 Tue
Throwback Thursday -- usmgrad, have an early start in the morning so posting tonight, 22:03:20 08/19/15 Wed People vs Mac from season four, first shown on Nov. 17, 1998. This episode is the only one I remember having scenes actually shots in Washington DC. Just wish it would have started and ended better, more shipper! Instead we got Harm answering the phone and saying "Renee" and Mac thinking about going out with Mic.
Rewrite a JAG moment -- Alicia, 19:29:50 08/08/15 Sat
In S5 JAG episode The Bridge at Kang So Ri, Harm almost had to choose between protecting Renee or protecting Mac. Mac revealed herself, saving Harm from the choice. What if she hadn't? Rewrite a JAG moment. Who would Harm have chosen and why? What would have been the result?
Mac:What were you gonna do?
Harm: Do about what?
Mac: When Solla had the gun on Renee, who were you gonna protect, her or me?
Harm: Well, you stepped forward, Mac. I guess we'll never know.
Did you know that August is National Eye Exam Month? Eye sight is an important thing for a pilot. Didn't Harm once boast about his 20/20 vision? (or did I dream that) There were a few episodes where eye sight and eye exams were important, can you name them? -- usmgrad, 22:23:01 08/04/15 Tue
Super Saturday -- usmgrad, 15:44:55 08/01/15 Sat
This week's Super Saturday is a game called Scrabble - JAG Style. It's a very simple game, listed below are ten JAG episode titles. All you have to do is unscramble the letters and to reveal the actual title. Bonus "points" if you can identify the season and episode number for each. To keep others "guessing" post your "answers" inside.
1. doce elub
4. ctuoh adn og
6. ybdo lakt
9. otw otwsn
10. ni niht ira
Reminder: To post inside - type a one or two words in the 'message subject' box but put your answers in 'type your message here' box.
Throwback Thursday -- usmgrad, 08:01:45 07/30/15 Thu The Brotherhood from season one, first shown on Feb 3, 1996. During a simulated attack, a seriously wounded Marine is found on the beach. JAG is called in to investigate. Harm and Meg follow two theories: an executed Code Red or a brawl. After finding a box with drugs on the beach and learning that the wounded Marine's brother Tyler is in a gang, it seems there's more behind the incident.
Do you remember the nicknames the gang called Harm and Meg?
What was it about the hand gesture that got everyone "talking"?
Throwback Thursday -- usmgrad, 22:47:37 07/22/15 Wed
Early morning for me tomorrow so I'm posting TBT tonight. Need help with this one, I captured the picture but don't remember the episode or the name of the bar.
National Ice Cream Day -- usmgrad, 12:59:21 07/19/15 Sun
Today is National Ice Cream Day, so in celebration a little JAG trivia quiz. (I actually 'borrowed' this from a post AJ did on the for DJE fans message board last year - thanks AJ)
1. In what JAG episode did Harm and Mac enjoy some ice cream together on a hot night? (Also remember the two flavors?)
2. In what JAG episode did Harm eat an orange, while his table companion had ice cream? (Who was the companion and what was that flavor?)
3. In what JAG episode did Harm and Mac assist with a melting ice cream problem, by both eating a helping or two? (Recall this flavor and why there was an ice cream problem?)
Post your answers inside. I'll post pictures and answers Monday night.
Unscramble each of the clue words. (Hint: they are all from Harm through the Alphabet letter "B") Take the letters that appear in the circles and unscramble them for the final message. Remember put your answers inside so everyone can play!
Throwback Thursday -- usmgrad, 07:59:58 07/16/15 Thu Deja Vu from season one, first shown on Oct. 21, 1995. The fifth episode in the series, we hear and see in flashbacks about Harm's 'trip' to Vietnam to look for his father. Do you think the story was believable? If he hadn't gone to Vietnam when he was 16 do you think he would have gone later, possibly messing up his chance to go to the Academy? What was it that drove Harm to look for his father, the fact that he was missing or was there another factor? Just a few questions to ponder while we remember back to 1995 and the excitement of a "new" man in our lives.
Below is a quote by Harm. It's one we all know. All you have to do is decode it! Each number has a letter counterpart, once you figure out the number-letter relationship you can decode the quote. Please place your answer "inside" so others can play too. (I've given you two hints to get you started)
JAG Coin -- judi, 13:18:01 07/06/15 Mon
Hey everyone, I just happened upon a JAG coin (just like the one pictured above). I was wondering if anyone wanted it. I'd be glad to send it to the first person who emails me.
Can you identify the episode by the summary below AND identify the season? Did you know the 'interesting' tidbit at the end of the summary?
Harm and Mac engage in a tense courtroom battle when a Navy SEAL is accused of murdering his friend during a mission,
and Harm goes way overboard to prove a point about firearms, firing a machine gun the court room.
This is the first episode of the series in which a trial takes place in the JAG HQ courtroom.
Place your answer 'inside' your message response so everyone can have a chance at guessing.
Birthday question -- usmgrad, 19:56:30 06/30/15 Tue
If you were to receive a birthday post from Harm, what form would it be in? A single picture, a collage, something created just for you or a generic Harm birthday greeting? Would you want it on your birthday or at the beginning of your birthday month, week?
Just thinking of ways to liven up the board. I could use input.
Super Saturday -- usmgrad, 11:25:50 06/27/15 Sat
This week's Super Saturday is "Harm and the letter . . .". Two years ago we described "Harm through the alphabet". It's time to revisit those lists. Today we have "Harm and the letter 'A' ". There are 10 words we used to describe Harm hidden in the puzzle. All begin with the letter 'A'. See how many you can find!
A D V O C A T E V E F A V N K
W A D V X G A W A V I A T O R

A friendly marathon for charity amongst the staff of JAG office becomes much more than that as grudges and pride come into play. Harm and Mac reconcile their friendship after finishing joint second in the race, behind Sturgis. Harm runs into a man who keeps impersonating Navy officers.
Wednesday's Words of Wisdom -- usmgrad, 08:13:19 06/24/15 Wed
"Words of Wisdom" = quotes from a particular episode. Were they true to the characters, totally off base or did they just promote more 'woulda, coulda, shoulda'?
This weeks "words of wisdom" are from JAG-a-thon. It was one of those episodes where Harm managed to put his foot in his mouth a few times. Four conversations each relating to the other until finally . . .
Sturgis: Do you two always get this personal?
(speaking at the same time) Mac: Yes. Harm: No.
Sturgis: Or is it me?
(speaking at the same time) Mac: No. Harm: Yes.
Sturgis: Look, this is clearly none of my business but don't you think you might want to deal with it?
Mac: Deal with what?
Sturgis: Whatever is going on here.
Mac: What do you think that is?
Sturgis: I'm not sure.
Harm: (to Mac) He doesn't know anything.
Sturgis: Is there something to know? Because when I asked you the last time you wouldn't answer me.
Mac: What are you expecting to hear?
Sturgis: Are you two involved with each other?
Mac: That's what this is about? You think that Harm would cheat on Renee?
Sturgis: I'm talking since he split with-- (he realises she doesn't know about it)
Mac: (to Harm) You split?
Harm: Mac and I are just friends.
Sturgis: I didn't say you weren't.
Harm: I know.
Sturgis: Is there some reason to believe otherwise?
Sturgis: Because you seem to be suggesting--
Harm: I'm not suggesting anything.
Sturgis: Were you ever a couple?
Sturgis: Did it come up? (Harm remains silent) Harm, are you involved with her?
Harm: I'm not!
Sturgis: You're sure?
Harm: Look, anyone who's ever been involved with Mac is either dead or feels like they are.
(The elevator door opens and Mac is standing there)
Admiral Chegwidden: I have some concerns about the Colonel. I was wondering if you might have some insights.
Harm: What sort of concerns, sir?
Admiral Chegwidden: Well, she seems upset.
Harm: Today in particular?
Admiral Chegwidden: Yes.
Harm: Well, it might have to do something with me not agreeing to settle on a case.
Admiral Chegwidden: But I'm also getting a sense of hurt--
Harm: Oh, that may also have to do with an indiscreet comment I made, sir.
Admiral Chegwidden: And anger?
Harm: We were discussing the Jagathon, Admiral.
Admiral Chegwidden: You're responsible for this?
Harm: It's one of those days, I guess. I seem to be pushing her buttons, sir.
Admiral Chegwidden: Commander, can you stop doing that?
Harm: I am trying, Admiral.
Mac: So where does that leave us?
Harm: I don't know, Mac. At the end, I guess.
Mac: How about back at the beginning?
Who was correct Harm or Mac? Was it really the end or beginning? How would you have changed the "out come" for the rest of the series?

David and Joel Gretsch -- Karoline, 15:00:41 06/19/15 Fri
Hi guys, I remember the first time I saw Joel on TV was in JAG, never seen him before, he was great in JAG, now he has done more on TV, more series and movies. If you are in touch with David, could you please ask David how was working with Joel?? any anecdotes between them while working together?? especially in the scene where Chief Hodge(Joel) struck Harm(David)in the throat and injected him sedation, the fight scenes. Hope you can ask David please, thanks a lot, they are both wonderful actors.
Texas JAGmeet 2015 -- Sarahsue, 15:41:41 06/15/15 Mon
Here's the group photo from this year's meet. Forgive me if I blow up the board, it's been years since I've posted on Voy. This was late Saturday afternoon and we had fun with the self-timer on my new camera.
Episode of the week -- usmgrad, 07:38:37 06/15/15 Mon
This week's episode is Dog Robber parts 1 & 2. They can be seen tonight on POP from 7-9 Central time, or on DVD, Season Seven disc 2.
Time line: first shown November 20 and 27, 2001, just after the attach of the twin towers in New York (9-11-01). That headline is a theme through out the episode. Especially in part one when Boone is called back to active service and Gunny requests a transfer to a combat unit.
Part 1 - Admiral Boone is called out of retirement to handle a diplomatic incident when a U.S. PC-3 Orion in the Taiwan Strait collides with a Chinese fighter jet and is then forced to make an emergency landing in China. Mac deals with two Naval Academy midshipmen who staged a duel.
Part 2 - When a Naval aviator, on his own initiative, destroys the captured PC-3 Orion with missiles fired from an F-18 Hornet, Harm has to keep the incident from sparking a conflict between the USA and China. Mac investigates a Marine commander at Marine Corps Combat Development Command who has been accused of sexism and discrimination of female marines.
What do you remember about the episodes? Images, lines, conversations? There were some great ones! Which do you thing was more interesting, the "A" story line with Harm and CAG or "B" story line with Mac.
dog robber as defined by Tom Boone "CAG": an officer's aide with the ability to get things done, usually off the record and under the radar.

Vacation Time! -- usmgrad, 07:53:37 06/10/15 Wed
It's that time of year, time to think about where to go for a summer vacation, or maybe a winter vacation for our friends south of the equator. This year let Harm help. It's simple really, you pick your vacation spot from one of the many locations we saw Harm either work or visit during the 10 years we spent with him. Let's see how many Harm friendly locations we can name and then you can pick your vacation spot! Who knows maybe you will see Harm!
Post below a location where Harm spent some time. Once the list begins to grow, when you find your "ideal" spot for a little rest and relaxation reply to that post with a Harm related "announcement" like
'this is the spot - me and Harm' or 'I'll be here, will Harm?'
What's old is new again! -- usmrgad, 22:06:32 06/07/15 Sun
Just because JAG and Harm no longer give us "new" things to talk about doesn't mean we don't have anything left to say. This community has been around a long time, through Annie, Jordan and Dalton, we even survived Brumby and the video princess and are still going strong 10 years after Fair Winds and Following Seas. From "in five years" to "you know the reason" to "I love you" this friendship has survived. So I say what's old is new again! If fashion can recycle ideas (I swear I'm wearing skirts right out of the Hippie 60's!) then so can we!
If you have an idea post it below or start a new thread. If it's something we've done in the past post it, let's do it again! We can have special "days" like Blue Monday and Throwback Thursday, maybe there's one you would like to introduce. We could have a different "theme" for each day of the week if you like. I have a few ideas, but I can't do it all. This is everyone's board. Really with a subject like HARM how hard can it be? (innuendo intended). So let's have it ladies, what are your ideas?
On a side note I'm easy to reach, click on my name and my email will pop up (oh look another innuendo, this is turning into a really blue post). Make sure to put Harmy Board or HB Friend in the subject line so I'll know it's from you. I don't mind emails, kind of breaks up the workday and give me something to do at night since there is NOTHING on TV these days and the kids are all grown and gone.
Looking forward to being Board Mom instead of bored mom.
Here's an interesting 'thought' about where Harm might be now. (inside) -- mj (always hopeful!), 02:54:13 05/29/15 Fri
Check out the MB and the pics of HAE in his new role for the movie 'Battle Scars' which was just featured at the GI Film Festival in Washington DC. On CindyG's fordjefans website are 2 pics which, imo, could definitely be images of our beloved Harm today. This is a role where HAE is retired military. I know Mr. HAE was trying to get away from being typecast, but I think it's not so much that he can't act beyond a certain range, but more he just looks the part of a squared-away fit and authoritative officer. It suits him very well and if ever a JAG reunion should happen, it's great news HAE still looks so great and our beloved Harm can still be there and I think the other original characters need and can be there, imo!
We need a new board mom. -- Cece (Danaher), 19:01:32 05/21/15 Thu
As the oldies no doubt know, judi, aka RDOL, used to run the HB pertal, I was her second banana, and the Chief was also a moderator. In fact, we still are moderators, though mostly inactive. Judi gave the board over to Araninda, who ran it very well for a few years. I don't know what happened, but maybe she just got tired.
I still "look after" the HBX if needed and virtually all of the collages, and HBX web sites are running off my server at my expense. I'm having problems with spam with one of the sites, but have had little time to deal with it.
I do not like deserting the HB, and actually loved coming in as a poster, and not a moderator. We loved the boards, but we used to spend hours setting up the other boards, doing collages, settling fights, and fixing problems that occurred from time to time.
On Novemeber 17th, 2001, a group of us from Maeve's JAGnik central, who called ourselves the Blue Angels, set up the HB (just one board), not having any idea of how successful it was to become. Yes we did have a lot of fun, and discussions too, as well as some heated contentious issues. Many of us met at the Fanfests in LA, but they ended in 2005, when JAG ended.
As it stands, I do not have DVDs of JAG, just every episode on VHS, so with it not running here in Canada, the interest just fell by the wayside.
But the HB was firstly, a community, and it is the people I miss. Yes, many of us are on Facebook, but in my opinion, the format of FB is extremely annoying and inefficient. I loved this format, where you could have a good argument all under one thread, and look things up in 10 pages of archives. It's so easy to miss stuff on FB. I can't always find something I've just posted. I only use it now for relatives and close friends, and I have made the decision not to read or respond to any contentious, negative, political or religious, opinion. I have a very negative view of social media, and believe it is a place for global bullies who don't care if they destroy the lives of strangers.
I haven't been to the HB in the past few weeks, in part because I've been away with not much internet, and in part because I've been too busy.
I don't like to see it fade away, and would rather see it close down than be a ghost town. However, if there is still enough interest in any of the boards, we do need a new board Mom, and some helpers who can properly moderate. I promise I will stick around, and will try to become more active. I just don't want to be the go to person, because I can no longer give that commitment. I will be willing to turn over the "keys" so to speak, so that the new moderators know how to fix problems, or even tweak the format if they and the posters want. The mods should be able to delete spam, and fix errors, and delete or add boards. For that they need the password and a knowledge of basic html.
The Chief (Heather) was the second or third Blue Angel, and is still around. Perhaps she has some ideas about the board, and she certainly should be consulted about a new moderator. I see that usmgrad is very active and would make a great board mom. But there are others who might want to help, so I'm hoping that someone will come forward.
As for the HBX, I may have to take the challenge boards down, but I will not do so without plenty of warning, so that posters can copy stories. I know longer have the originals on my hard drive, as that one crashed a couple of years ago.
So let's give it a few weeks to make any permanent decision. If you know posters who would like to come back, let them know. So we need your input. Also, if you want to email me, please feel free to do so.
Scrolling down I realize how much I miss because folks post on threads down the page -
Since we've all gotten used to facebook that rolls things up to the top when someone new comments on a thread - Does anyone besides me think that changing the setting on the HB so that a comment rolls a thread to the top might be a good experiment?
Harm's mother was mentioned in many episodes but only appeared in three, can you name them? What was the "occasion" for each visit? Who was the one doing the visiting? Was Harm a lousy son as Mac once claimed he was?
