DURING THE HEIGHT OF MIAMI VICE'S POPULARITY, PHILIP MICHAEL THOMAS HAD A 5 YEAR PLAN TO WIN A EMMY, GRAMMY, OSCAR AND TONY (CALLED EGOT) HE HASNT BEEN NOMINATED FOR ANY OF THEM. HOW IRONIC THAT THE SECOND ACTOR TO PLAY RICARDO TUBBS, JAMIE FOXX, HAS WON AN EMMY, GRAMMY AND AN OSCAR!

WHERE DID TUBBS LIVE? ANSWER: NOWHERE. DURING THE 5 SEASONS MIAMI VICE WAS ON THE AIR, THE PRODUCERS NEVER GAVE TUBBS A HOUSE (I GUESS HE LIVED OUT OF HIS CADILLAC)

I thought in the episode "Rites of Passage", he and Valerie go to his apartment? Or is it just the hotel she's staying at? I think it can be assumed he lived in an apartment somewhere in Miami but they just never showed it.

BEFORE THE BURNETT TRILOGY, HOW MANY TIMES DID SONNY POINT HIS GUN AT RICARDO? TWICE IN THE PILOT. THE EPISODES, THE MAZE, BUDDIES, BACK IN THE WORLD AND PAYBACK....
