Aloha Ke Kahi I Ke Kahi (We Need Each Another) [4.1][edit]

[Wo Fat has been recaptured and now tasked for transport to a Supermax prison in the States. McGarrett talks to him one more time]
Wo Fat: Coach is even worse than I imagined.
Steve: Why don't you cut the crap? I just saved your life. Now, tell me, why did my mother come and visit you in prison?
Wo Fat: She came to apologize.
Steve: Apologize for what?
Wo Fat: For killing my father.
Steve: You killed her husband-- my father-- and then you hunted her for 20 years. Why would my mother ever apologize to you?
Wo Fat: That is a question only she can answer.
Steve: I was afraid you were going to say that.
Wo Fat: [calls out McGarrett as he leaves] What are you doing, Steve? What do you think you're going to find? The truth? You don't want to know the truth!

Aʻale Maʻa Wau (Fish Out of Water) [4.2][edit]

[Danny shows Steve his new Camaro]
Danny: Beautiful, huh?
Steve: Looks nice. [grabs the keys from Danny and gets into the driver's seat]
Danny: What are you doing?
Steve: Let's go.
Danny: That sounds good. You're not gonna let me drive my new car? [no response from Steve, gets into the car] You're a real jerk, you know that?
[Steve pushes on the gas pedal]
Danny: You're grinding the thing. Would you please?!
Steve: [interrupts] I'm not grinding the thing. What are you talking about? This thing is an animal. Let me tell you about Zero to 60 in under five. Under five, okay?
Danny: Mm-hmm.
Steve: Corners like it's stuck to the road. It's a dream. I love this car.
Danny: Are you enjoying yourself?
Steve: I am. [smirks at Danny] I am.

[Danny is trying to dissuade Steve from letting Catherine work with her ex-boyfriend and his fellow SEAL Billy.]
Danny: You see, that is why you will never see it coming, pal. You are complacent, okay? You need to fortify your position. At all times, at all times, you need to protect your queen like, uh, chess.
Steve: No, not like in chess, Danny. In chess, the queen is a fighting piece, and you use her to protect the king.
Danny: What are you talking about?
Steve: Okay, okay. It was a metaphor.
Danny: It was a metaphor for you losing the best thing that ever happened to you.

Danny: [watches Steve and Catherine kissing at the side during the game] There's no kissing in baseball, Steve.

Kaʻoia iʻo Ma Loko (The Truth Within) [4.3][edit]

[Steve and Catherine have some time together]
Steve: You nervous about today?
Catherine: I just can't believe after so many years, today's the last day that I'm going to be putting on a uniform.
Steve: Look, I'm not gonna lie to you and tell you it's an easy transition, because it's not, okay? But you're gonna be fine. I mean, you should be excited. This is, uh It's like a new chapter in your life. It's-it's the beginning of an adventure.
Catherine: Are you sure it doesn't bother you?
Steve: What?
Catherine: Billy being my new boss?
Steve: Why, because he's your ex? No, it doesn't bother me.I'm fine.
Catherine: You're lying.
Steve: Totally lying. Well, of course I'm lying. Look, I trust you, okay? That's all I need.

[Danny gets wind of Catherine's new job]
Danny: Law of nature says that if you take a boy rabbit, and you take a girl rabbit, and you put 'em into a cage together over a long period of time, what do you think is going to happen?
Steve : Are you real––are you really doing it? Are you really gonna compare Billy and Catherine to rabbits?
Danny: We're all animals.
Steve: We're not rabbits.
Danny: But we are animals, and this is my point. It is a fact, after these long nights, long, hardworking nights, bad Chinese food, law of nature says, these two people are going to have a moment
Steve: A moment?
Danny: A moment.
Steve: A moment.
Danny: A moment where they look at each other in the eye, and bing, just like that, everything comes back. All those old feelings and you're gonna have nobody else to blame but yourself, because you let her take a job with her ex-boyfriend.

Steve: [introducing Jerry to Catherine] This is Jerry-- he is our special consultant.
Danny: Yeah, Roswell division.
Catherine: It's nice to meet you, Jerry, I'm Catherine. Uh, why don't you guys come this way?
Jerry: [whispers to Danny] She'll do.
Danny: Oh, no, no, no, listen, her, uh, boyfriend is a complete animal. You want to stay away from that one, trust me.

A ia la aku (From This Day Forward) [4.4][edit]

[Steve and Danny are watching a movie with Catherine and Gabby]
Steve: What, did I miss something? I mean, the music just went all sad.
Danny: That's because that's how the filmmakers want you to feel. Sad. See?
Steve: Well, no, this is supposed to be a romantic comedy. This is neither romantic nor funny. I don't understand what's happening.

Danny: Weddings, I tell you, every time. It's a bad idea. You got dysfunctional family members. Bunch of bitter friends. And they're all fueled by an open bar. Something terrible is bound to happen.
Steve: And you wonder why you're divorced.

Danny: [hypothesizing about cause of death] This guy and another guy, they get into a beef over, uh, I don't know, let's say they brought it to the reception. They end up back in the room here, uh, get into a little fisticuffs. Uh, this guy doesn't realize his buddy has a gun. Bang, here he is.
Chin Ho: Interesting. Very detailed theory. I particularly enjoyed your use of the word "fisticuffs".

Steve: Let me ask you a question then. If Gabby asked you to put your career on hold and move to Denver, would you do that?
Danny: No, I wouldn't do that. But I got a daughter who lives here. It's not the same thing.
Steve: Plus you'd miss me too much.
Danny: Plus I'd miss you too much.
Steve: There you go.

[Catherine Rollins, now a private security operator, asks Steve for help in threat assessments for a Saudi diplomat she and Billy are protecting]
Steve: I don't know how I feel about allocating Five-0 resources to a private security job.
Catherine: Okay. Um, remind me again how many satellites I have repositioned for you over the years. Hmm? [grins] You owe me.
Steve: [smiles] Okay, okay, okay. Relax. Come on, I'll log you in! [shows her the Five-0 screen]

Kupuʻeu (Fallen Hero) [4.5][edit]

[A medical orderly at the hospital comes to a room where Joe White sees Billy Harrington's corpse]
Orderly: Boss said you wanted to see me.
Joe White: This man's name is William Harrington. Former Lieutenant Commander, SEAL Team VII. He saw action in lraq and Afghanistan. He served his country with courage and distinction.
Orderly: I'll take good care of him, sir.
Joe: I'm sure you will. I just wanted you to know who he is.

Joe White: You wanna go for a ride?
Danny: Yeah, sure.
Joe: But I'm driving.
Danny: Oh, yeah, yeah, the story of my life.

[Joe calls out Danny over his habit of arguing with Steve while in the car]
Joe: Well, look, how about if I change the subject?
Danny That-that would be fine.
Joe: Steve asked me to get in touch with Doris.
Danny: Okay, well, I-I mean, that makes sense. You know, he's got questions, and she may have the answers.
Joe: Yeah, well, what I didn't tell him was I've been trying to find her for over a month. I haven't talked to her since she put Adam and Kono on that freighter that night. And the chatter is that once she left the country, old enemies came out of the woodwork.
Danny: What, she's on the run?
Joe: Or worse.
Danny: Or worse? Well, what are you gonna tell Steve?
Joe: I can't tell him anything. I don't have any confirmation. What I'm hoping is that you will tell him to stand down on this and let this go. Because we start turning over rocks, God knows what might crawl out.
Danny: Yeah, so I'll just talk to Steve. What makes you think he's gonna listen to me?
Joe: Because he trusts you. He looks at me, he sees ulterior motives. He looks at you, he just sees a friend.
Danny: Ah, okay. Well, I could tell Steve whatever you want me to tell him and he's gonna say, "Okay, sounds good," and he's gonna go off and do whatever he wants to do. And you know that. So my advice to you is, please, get confirmation on these rumors, and get the truth, and share that truth with Steve. Because you know and I know that he's not gonna stop until he gets it.

[Joe White is browsing through Steve's Champion toolbox and sees a tape recorder. He plays it]
John McGarrett: [recorded voice] When he was five years old, I asked my son Steve what he wanted to be when he grew up. "I want to be a cop, Dad, like you." I told him to... be anything but that.

[Abby Maxwell's assistant has just been unmasked as John Cutler's killer]
Andrew: You should've let me die.
Abby Maxwell: Andrew, why would you do this?
Andrew: I'm in love with you, Abby. I've always loved you. I just wanted you to stop. [taken away]]
Catherine: Unrequited love. Second oldest motive there is.

Kupouli ʻla (Broken) [4.6][edit]

Danny: It's a violation however you look at it. The sanctity of my home has been violated.
Steve: It's toilet paper, Danny. It's a couple of kids having fun on Halloween. What's the big deal?
Danny: The big deal is, in my opinion, this is how most decent kids turn to a life of corruption.
Steve: [looks at Danny in disbelief] Excuse me?
Danny: Yeah. TP-ing is a gateway crime. Ok? It starts with toilet paper and then next thing you know, armed robbery.
Steve: You know what, Danny, if that's the case, I really hope you catch these hardened criminals and I'm sure it's gonna be a career case for you.
Danny: You're making fun.
Steve: I'm not making fun. I'm serious.

Steve: Hey, let's go.
Danny: No...I, uh...I can't go. Can't do it. Sorry.
Steve: Can't do what?
Danny: I can't do caves or tunnels or cramped spaces, anything where I feel like a rat. I can't.
Steve: [surprised] You're claustrophobic?
Danny: A little bit. Yeah.
Steve: [looks into tunnel and then at Danny] Ok...well, uh...wait here.
Danny: Ok. I'm sorry. I just...I can't.
Steve: [shrugs it off] No...I mean, what are you gonna do right?
Danny: Thanks.
[Steve goes into the tunnel but stops and turns back.]
Steve: Hey, Danny. How did it take me four years to learn that about you?
Danny: I don't know. Maybe you don't pay such close attention to me.

Ua Nalohia (In Deep) [4.7][edit]

Danny: Buddy, listen to me, the way I see it, Mary didn't adopt a kid; you did. All right, 'cause it's only a matter of time before that poor, unfortunate child is looking for some suckling at 3:00 a.m. It's gonna be looking to you.
Steve: No, there's gonna be no suckling, okay?
Danny: No?
Steve: 'Cause that baby is going back.
Danny: Oh, you're gonna send it back, what, to the orphanage? With a bunch of other kids that nobody wants? What? Yeah, no, it's a good idea. I mean, it's probably a better idea than leaving it with your sister.
Steve: Wait a minute, I thought you didn't approve?
Danny: I don't approve.
Steve: Okay, whose side are you on then?
Danny: I'm on the side where the kid has a chance of being loved.

Steve: This morning, where were you?
Jason Decker: Complying with the state's own constitutional invasion of my physical sovereignty.
Danny: [confused] Come again?
Decker: I was peeing in a cup for my PO.

Mary: I'll just call Child Protective Services and Joan will have to be placed in foster care for a while. I just hope that the trauma doesn't affect her cognitive development.
Steve: "Cognitive"? You don't even know what that word means.
Mary: You're a horrible uncle, you know that?
[Later, Steve walks into the Five-O headquarters with baby Joan strapped in a carrier. Danny sees him and starts laughing.]
Steve: Is this funny to you?
Danny: Yeah!
Steve: So when you're through amusing yourself, I need you to wipe down and change her pads, please.
Danny: [smirks] Not at all. I'm retired, you see. And it's gonna be way too entertaining to see Uncle Steve on diaper duty, so go ahead.
Chin: Hey, why is there a baby attached to your chest?

Danny: [to Joan] Once upon a time there was a very handsome prince. And this, uh, handsome prince had a very beautiful black stallion. And this black stallion was, uh, was admired by everybody in the kingdom. He was the fastest and fairest stallion in the land, about 528 horsepower, very nice stallion, anyway. Uh, one day, uh, this incredibly handsome prince Yeah, he was, he was out of sight, let me tell you. He was partnered up with a mean ogre. A disgusting, hairy ogre. It was not a match made in heaven. They would slay dragons together from time to time. And they'd argue all the time and, of course, the brilliant charming prince would win those arguments because the ogre was a dope. Despite their, uh, victories, there was a dark cloud that loomed. Because the dopey ogre coveted the handsome prince's stallion, okay? And he was a very greedy, selfish ogre with major control issues. And he would never let the handsome prince ride his own stallion.

Decker: Where's my money?
Steve: Where's your money? Good news is, we got your money and your guns. Bad news is, we got your money and your guns.

Akanahe (Reluctant Partners) [4.8][edit]

Lou Grover: Damn it!
Steve: What's wrong?
Lou: Was I talking to you?
Steve: You have a very angry disposition, you know that?
Lou: Oh, well, maybe it's 'cause I'm with you.
[Lou is frantically holding up his cellphone hoping to get a signal]
Steve: [annoyed] Would you stop doing that? You look like a flying giraffe.
Lou: How can there be no cell reception up here?
Steve: Welcome to Waimanalo.

Lou: You know, McGarrett, I got to ask you, why is it that you are the constant variable in every pile of crap I step in?
Steve: [sarcastically] Oh, that's good; this is my fault.
Lou: I'm just calling it like I see it, man. Wherever you go, trouble follows.
Steve: That's funny coming from you.
Lou: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Steve: You don't think I did my homework, huh? HPD hires a new SWAT commander, you don't think I'm gonna check you out? It's not every day that a 20-year vet on track to becoming superintendent up and moves to a rock in the middle of the Pacific. Unless he's running from something.
Lou: Oh, by night, he's a Navy SEAL, by day, he's a shrink.

Haʻuoli La Hoʻomoaikaʻi (Happy Thanksgiving) [4.9][edit]

Aunt Deb: Well, look at you. Let me see. I see a little gray fleck up there. I think it makes you look very distinguished.
Steve: [smiles] Thank you very much.
Deb: [looks down and frowns at the tattoos on Steve's biceps] The tattoos, not so much.

[Deb is buying turkey at the supermarket but is given a small one.]
Deb: That's the best you got? The runt of the litter?
Butcher: Next time, plan ahead.
Deb: Oh thank you for that sage advice.

[Aunt Deb has been arrested]
Steve: Do you wanna tell me what happened?
Deb: [sheepishly] Well...I needed some grass and, uh, how was I supposed to know the guy was a narc [a HPD Narcotics officer]?
Steve: What?
Deb: I wouldn't even be here if it weren't for those fascists at the dispensary. They wouldn't take my card.

Deb: [to Catherine] You know, Steve has that "tough guy" act down pat but underneath it all he's still that vulnerable little guy who thought he lost his mom and had to grow up too soon. And Mary, she's the only one who really gets that about him because she lived it too. Once I'm gone, they're gonna need each other more than ever, even though they both won't want to admit it. They're like kids.

Steve: What the matter? You're all right?
Danny: Why wouldn't I be all right?
Lou Grover: Well, you do seem a little nervous.
Danny: Nervous? We're about to meet the President. Why are you so zen? That's a better question. All of you.
Steve: I was nervous too, the first time.
Danny: The first time? When did you meet the President?
Steve: I can't tell you that. That's classified.
Danny: Oh, it's classified, huh? Was it during Operation Strawberry Fields?
Steve: [mumbles to himself] I've already said too much.

Hoʻonani Makuakane (Honor Thy Father) [4.10][edit]

Narrator of US military newsreel: Look at them go! Our ever-ready servicemen enjoying a little R&R on the exotic island of Oahu, the gathering place of the Hawaiian Islands, where a veritable tropical paradise meets a bustling metropolis. But after a day of sand and surf, it's back to work for these lucky boys serving Uncle Sam on the most beautiful place on Earth. Keep up the good work, fellas! America's proud of you!

Ezra Clark: Leave before I call the cops!
Steve: Uh, sir, we are the cops.
Clark: I've never heard of "Five-O".
Steve: Ok, how about...here, I'll show you my badge again. [takes out his badge]
Clark: [indignantly] Son, are you implying I can't see or read?!

Danny: I see what's happening. You know what you're becoming, right?
Steve: But you're gonna tell me, aren't you.
Danny: A big softie.
Steve: [mutters to himself] I was right.
Danny: With a bleeding heart. Which somehow you don't have. I don't know, maybe you're becoming a human being, Steve.

[at the former site of the Honouliuli Internment Camp, ex-internee David Toriyama tries to recall memories of his father's death]
David Toriyama: [describing place as he walks] The main guard tower was here. An American soldier sat up there behind a 30-caliber machine gun. Someone was watching our every move. This is where my mother had her garden. The ground was so sandy. She could only grow root vegetables- parsnips, carrots, radishes. And this is where she collapsed when we got the news that Kenji had been killed in Italy. Listen. Can you hear her cry? I still can. Here. Right here. This is the place. This is where we lived.

[Steve has a moment of silence facing the Arizona Memorial and sees David Toriyama behind him]
David Toriyama: I remembered why your grandfather's picture was in our family photo album. There was this young serviceman who used to come to our house for tutoring. He and his wife were about to have another child and he wanted better for them, so he asked my father to help him prepare for an officer aptitude test. For three months, he would come over after dinner, and when he had spare time, he'd play catch with me. That man was your grandfather, Steven McGarrett. And the last time I saw him was December 6, 1941. The night he gave me this. [gives Steve a catcher's mitt; Steve tests its grip] It was a gift for my father's help. You have his heart. That's how I remembered.
Steve McGarrett: Mahalo.

Pukana (Keepsake) [4.11][edit]

Danny: [surprised to see Lou Grover and his daughter Samantha] What's up, Lou? What, uh, what are you doing here?
Lou: Well, we're doing a little community service as penance for someone's recent transgression. [glares at Samantha]
Danny: Ah.
Samantha: Daddy, I said I was sorry.
Lou: Yeah, I remember. [Samantha rolls her eyes in response] [turns to Danny] Do yourself a favor. Don't let yours grow up.
Danny: No, I don't want her to grow up at all.

Chin Ho: [chuckles at the sight of Danny in a t-shirt and denim shorts] Guess it's casual Friday. Must have missed the memo.
Danny: Oh, that'd be funny if it wasn't Tuesday.
Steve: [to Chin] Annual beach cleanup at Gracie's school.
Danny: Right. Which I'd much rather be spending my Christmas Eve over there than with a dead guy, all right? So if we could speed this up, that'd be nice.

[Steve and Danny enter the morgue and see Max trying to extract a bullet from the victim]
Steve: Hey, Max.
Max: Oh, gentlemen, come on in. You are just in time.
Danny: Time for what? A game of Operation?
Max: I would prefer if you would refrain from making your mildly entertaining witticisms as this takes complete concentration.
Danny: Yeah, no, I know you don't want to make the buzzer go off, right?
Max: [looks at Steve] I don't envy you, Commander.

[Steve and Danny walk into Steve's office and catch Kamekona singing "Tiny Bubbles" and playing his ukelele]
Danny: What are you, uh, what are you doing?
Kamekona: "Tiny Bubbles." Written by Leon Pober, released by Don Ho in 1966.
Danny: Ah, and butchered by you here in 2013.
Steve: [grins] I liked it.
Kamekona: [grumbles under his breath] "Butchered". [hands Steve his ukelele and a piece of paper] This is for you, brah.
Steve: What is it?
Kamekona: Cost of doing business.
Steve: [looks at paper] No. This is this-this is $300. [Kamekona looks at him] What do you–– $300 for a ukulele?!
Kamekona: That's koa wood, brah. And good information does not come cheap. Especially during the holiday season.
[Steve grudgingly takes out his wallet and pays Kamekona]
Danny: Wow. You actually have a wallet.

Lou: Oh, you buying?
Catherine: Yeah.
Steve: Who invited you?
Lou: This Grinch act of yours, just-just stop it. You know you like me. You just have difficulty expressing your feelings.
Danny: [to Lou] I don't know how he feels about you, but he definitely likes a free meal. That I know.
Steve: [turns to Danny] What's that supposed to mean??
Danny: [to Steve] Well, I don't want to put a fine point on it, but you are cheap.
Lou: [under his breath] Yeah. Oops.

O kela me keia Manawa (Now and Then) [4.12][edit]

[Steve and Lou are in the car to interview suspects, Danny is in his car]
Steve: [on the phone with Danny] How about you?
Danny: Me? I'm sick.
Steve: I mean, she's only gonna be gone for a couple of days, Danny, okay?
Danny: You're missing the point. She did the drop-and-run, Steve, okay? Not even barely a kiss on the cheek. All right? And this is not the first time. This is not the first time that I have looked in my girl's eyes and seen something different. I don't know what it is. It's like her innocence is, uh, floating off into space or something. I don't know what.
Steve: Ah, well, she's growing up, ok? What are you gonna do?
Danny: Build a time machine. I'm gonna go back in time when she was just a baby, before I met you, to a happy time in my life.
Steve: Ok. Good luck with that.
Danny: [unamused] You think this is funny, don't you?
[Lou signals for Steve to pass the phone to him]
Lou: Yeah, listen, it gets worse. Oh, yeah. Yeah, wait till she asks you to take her bra shopping, huh. Or when the first boyfriend shows up. You're gonna love that. You ain't seen nothing yet, pal, so put on your big-boy pants because Father Time is not your friend.
Danny: Will you put Steve back on, please? [Lou passes the phone back to Steve]
Steve: Yeah.
Danny: Do not, under any circumstances, ever do that to me again.
Lou: [shouts into phone] Truth hurts, don't it?
Danny: Okay, put him back on.
Steve: Okay. [passes phone to Lou]
Lou: I'll tell you something else... [Danny hangs up on them]

Steve: I can slow down if you, uh, if you can't keep up.
Lou: You know, my old man once told me never mistake somebody who's moving fast with somebody who knows where they're going.
Steve: Yeah, all due respect, your old man didn't know me. I move fast and I know where I'm going.
Lou: [sarcastically] Boy, I wish I was half as good as you think you are. [swats an insect near his ear] Ouch!
Steve: [takes a drink from his water bottle] Long way from Chicago, huh?

Steve: I know you're not gonna go home, sit in your rocking chair and wait on a call from me, okay? You're gonna be out here making a mess of things, you know? Get in my way, so I figured I'd do myself a favor, right? Save myself the trouble. But you're only half right. Catherine Rollins is on reserve duty. I got Danno on the North Shore, I'm short-handed so I thought about it and figured you were competent enough to tag along.
Lou: Competent enough? Well, you ain't exactly Mount Rushmore material yourself, you know.

Danny: [sees Lou at the dinner table] What's, uh what's going on here?
Steve: What are you talking about?
Danny: Well, you know, first you invite him over for Thanksgiving. Then you guys, uh you guys partner up. Now he's in the kitchen cooking chili, watching the game. People are gonna think you two like each other or something.
Steve: I don't know. H-He's not that bad.
Danny: No?
Steve: No, he's not that bad. I mean, he's, uh he's a bit he's a bit thick-headed, but he makes a great chili.
Danny: Oh, that's good. So he's like you, but he can cook.

Kamekona: Bruddah, I don't think it's chili unless you have spam in it.
Lou: Where I come from, spam is a controlled substance. Eat up.

Hana Lokomaikaʻi (The Favor) [4.13][edit]

[John McGarrett eulogizes Kam Tong Kelly]
John McGarrett: In Ecclesiastes, we're told to everything there is a season. A time to every purpose under heaven. Time to be born. Time to die. Time to laugh. Time to weep. This is one such time. Kam Tong Kelly was the best man I ever knew. His love of life was exceeded only by his love of family, which everyone here today was a member. A life full of commendations and awards meant nothing to him compared to the pride that he felt when his eldest son, Chin Ho, enrolled in the police academy. It is through him that Kam Tong's legacy continues. A legacy that embraces all of us who were lucky enough to have known him.

Na Hala a ka makua (Sins of the Father) [4.14][edit]

[As Roy Parrish holds McGarrett and Danno at gunpoint, they talk about their daughters]
Roy Parrish: How old's your daughter? Eleven? Twelve? Where were you when she was born? I bet you were right there. You probably held her in your arms and heard her first little cry. Wouldn't be surprised if you cut the cord. You probably did, didn't you? You know where I was?
Danny Wiliams: No.
Parrish: Max seg, Otter Creek, Wheelwright, Kentucky. By the time I was released, my little girl was already six years old. With my record I was lucky if I could see her a couple hours every weekend. I'd take her to the park and push her on a swing and buy a shaved ice. You know what that's life. I was there every Saturday, no matter what, until I till I went up again. The years kept piling up, one after another. By the time I got out, she wasn't a little girl anymore. Already made up her mind what kind of man I was. I figured that new job I had was my chance to make a little bit of money. Maybe put her in college, do something right for once in my life.

[Roy Parrish's daughter reads one of her father's letters]
Roy Parrish: I'm still holding out hope that one day you'll read these letters. Because my biggest fear isn't that I'll spend the rest of my life in prison for a crime I didn't do, it's that I'll die in here without getting the chance to tell you how proud I am of you and how much you mean to me. The time we spent together were the happiest moments of my life. And I want you to know that there's nothing that's made me happier than being your daddy.

Paleʻla (Buried Secrets) [4.15][edit]

Hoku Welowelo (Fire in the Sky) [4.16][edit]

Steve: I've been thinking a lot about our last conversation. How you wanted to know what brought me back to Hawaii. Well, a month ago, I would've told you it was to find the man who killed my father. I realized it was about more than that. I lost somebody. Somebody really close to me. He, um he gave his life to save mine.
Lou Grover: What was his name?
Steve: His name was Freddie Hart. He was a team guy. We went through BUD/S together. We always had each other's back. He was my brother. More than anything else in this world, Freddie wanted to be a father. That was it. He would've been a great father, too. Anyway, after he died, um the Navy didn't feel the same. When the governor offered me Five-O I jumped at it.
Lou: You ran away.
Steve: Yeah.

[After Danny kicks up a fuss about Steve arranging for his mom Clara to ride along with Lou without his knowledge.]
Danny: Just stop for one second, okay? All I am saying is that a heads-up would've been nice. Okay? That's all.
Steve: You're so worked up about this.
Danny: Oh, oh, okay, listen, um, I know this may seem like a foreign concept to you, but the idea of my mother being in harm's way-- it does not sit well with me.
Steve: You got to give her more credit, Danny. I mean, she survived you.
Danny: [deadpan] Ah. You're not a good friend. In fact, you're no longer my friend.

Clara: So, Captain, I really appreciate you showing me around. Well But I'm a little old for a babysitter. I mean, I loved going to the police museum, and the M.E. was riveting. But I was kind of hoping for something, you know, a little more adventurous.
Lou: Well, I hate to disappoint, but, uh, me taking you into the middle of a dangerous situation...
Clara: That's not gonna happen?
Lou: You know that's not gonna happen.
Clara: Not even, like, a sketchy donut shop or something?
Lou: I see where that boy of yours gets his bite.

Lou: I figure we ought to get you guys a Five-O Grover signal. That way, you can just throw it up in the sky when you need me.
Steve: Trust me, nobody wants to see your name in lights.
Danny: Yeah, and nobody on the planet wants to see you in tights.

Ha Lalo o ka ʻili (Beneath the Surface) [4.17][edit]

[To prevent his parents from a divorce, Danny has brought them together at home with a living room set up like the Italian restaurant they went to on their first date. Some things have to be said though]
Clara Williams: You really hurt me, you know.
Eddie Williams: I'm sorry. I love you, I miss you and I want you to come home.
Clara: [laughs] Well, that's not gonna do it. You can't just come here and say you're sorry and expect me to go running back home. Why didn't you call me?
Eddie: I must have had the phone in my hand at least a dozen times, I swear I did, but...
Clara: But what?
Eddie: [sighs] I was embarrassed and ashamed. I was confused.
Clara: Confused about what?
Eddie: About everything. You see, for more than half of my life, that firehouse has been my world. I had someplace to go every day. I had a purpose. Then [sighs] one day, I just age out. And they throw me a nice dinner and they send me on my way with a shiny plaque. You have no idea what it's like to have something like that taken away to-to feel like, to feel like you just don't matter anymore.
Clara: Oh, you think so? I know exactly what it feels like to not matter anymore, but I missed you, I missed you all the time, and I really thought that when you retired, that it would be our time again. We wouldn't have the kids, and we can fall in love all over again and be romantic and be a couple and have a good time, but you made me feel like I didn't matter at all.
Eddie: Oh, Clara, that's not true. I realize that you're all that matters. If I could, I'd go back and I would treat you like the princess that you are. [laughs softly;stands] I, uh ... I came here to get you back. [kneels and holds her hand] And I'm not leaving without you. 'Cause the truth is, I'm nothing without you. [kisses hand]
Clara: I love you. [they kiss]

[Steve meets a certain CIA official over coordinates he and Jerry figured out on the Champion toolbox, but the official is rather uncooperative]
Sam Connors: [looks at map] It's a grave.
Steve: It's a grave. Okay. Whose grave? Who's buried here?
Connors: I'm done talking. I've already said enough.
Steve: [stops him] Listen to me. What you say here stays here. It stays between us. I'm not going to do anything to jeopardize your career.
Connors: [shrugs off Steve] It's not my career that I'm worried about. [leaves]

Hoʻi Hou (Reunited) [4.18][edit]

[at the Kukui High Class 1989 reunion, Chin Ho reacquaints with a classmate]
Nani: We should go on a ride-along sometime.
Chin Ho: Actually, we don't do those things. That's HPD.
Nani: Oh. Well, that's okay. 'Cause I actually meant ride-along in the car, to a bar. There's a great new place that just opened on Merchant Street.
Chin Ho: I'll call you.
Nani: Okay. [leaves]
Jerry: [sees her leave; to Chin Ho] Naughty Nani. "Most likely to be married five times."
Chin Ho: She just dumped number six.
Jerry: Ooh. An opening. I got a shot. [sees Chin Ho's doubtful face] What?
Chin Ho: Nothing.

[At the hospital, Chin Ho's batchmate Alan Lim wakes up with handcuffs]
Alan Lim: What the hell's this? What's going on?
Chin Ho Kelly: We recovered Corey's body, Alan. He probably looks a little different than when you and Bradley buried him in the maze 25 years ago.
Alan: I don't know anyone named Corey.
Chin Ho: Sure you do. Laura knew him, too. In fact, Laura liked him. Didn't she? She liked him a lot. That's why he's dead, isn't it, Alan? You knew that she had a thing for Corey, but you were too much of a coward to confront him by yourself. You needed Bradley to help you.
Alan: You know what? If that's where you found the body, maybe you should go ask Bradley how it got there.
Chin Ho: Why don't you ask him yourself. [cops bring in Bradley Richmond]
Bradley Richmond: It's over. I told them everything.
Alan: Why? Why would you do that?
Bradley: You killed Laura. That's my sister.
Alan: She was going to go to the cops. I have a family. I have a life! [sniffles] She wanted to ruin everything.
Bradley: No. All she wanted to do was tell the truth about what happened that night. She couldn't live with the guilt anymore.
Alan: We all swore that we would never tell anyone what happened. You swore to me!
Bradley: We were just a bunch of kids. Alan, we were scared. We didn't want to go to jail.
Alan: It was an accident. We just wanted to teach him a lesson. Rough Corey up a little bit so that he would stay away from Laura. but it got out of control. I slugged him, then Corey, he-he he fell and hit his head on a rock. There was blood everywhere. He was dead. And there was nothing that any of us could do to change that.

[At Kamekona's, the gang pore over Jerry's Kukui '89 yearbook and sees Chin Ho's picture]
Jerry: Ah, there he is. [everyone laughs at Chin's pic]
Danny Williams: What a goofball. What-what is that? You got the fencing team, you're in the band, and look at this.
Catherine Rollins: Uh, mathletes? Junior mathletes? It's amazing.
Chin Ho: I had a wide variety of interests, okay? And don't forget QB1 and captain of the football team.
Kono: All right. What about you, Jerry?
Jerry: Mm, there I am.
Catherine: Oh, yeah, buddy.
Kono: Whoo! "Most likely to be abducted by aliens".
Catherine: It's not too late. You all right?
Jerry: [reads dedication] "Don't ever stop asking questions. The world needs more people like you." Laura wrote that.

Ku I Ka Pili Koko (Blood Brothers) [4.19][edit]

[while trapped under the rubble, McGarrett and Danny talk to ease the tension, and suddenly Amber is brought up]
Danny: Yeah, I'll probably screw it up like I do everything else. Right? Not in my DNA to be happy.
Steve: I didn't mean that. That's not what I meant.
Danny: No, I'm officially agreeing with you. There is something wrong with the way that I am built. I-I can't, uh I can't just enjoy happiness like regular people, you know?
Steve: You don't think you're being a little hard on yourself?
Danny: No, I don't. When I was a kid, my parents would go out to eat dinner. If they were late coming home, I used to imagine that they died in a car wreck, just 'cause they were 15 minutes late and I used to talk to God and beg him. I said, "Please just take my dad, not my mom." 'Cause I couldn't live without my mom. mean, every time something good happens in my life, I-I just I think of when it's gonna end. That's all I can think about.
Steve: You for real?
Danny: Yeah.
Steve: That's not normal.
Danny: I know it's not normal. Listen to this. On my wedding day, I'm looking at Rachel, just about to say "I do," and all I can see is the day she's gonna serve me with divorce papers. No joke. And I-I don't know, man. The only sustained happiness I ever felt in my life so far is Grace. And, you know, it's just a matter of time before she turns 18, and then she's out the door and she marries some schmuck. I don't know.
Steve: You got to change, man. You can't live like that.
Danny: Well, I'd like very much to change. It's just not so simple, you know?
Steve: Take Amber, all right? Start small. Instead of pushing her away, like you always do, fixate on how she's gonna break your heart, she's gonna destroy your life bring her in, bring her closer.
Danny: All right, I'll give it a shot.
Steve: What?
Danny: I said I'll give it a shot. I make it out of here alive, I'll give it a shot.

[McGarrett has discovered who set up the carpark bombing and he's not happy]
Edward Cobb: Looks like you had a bad day, Commander.
Steve: Not as bad as you would've liked. I know you set me up to keep me quiet about Cambodia, but I'm still here.
Cobb: Question is: have you gotten the message?
Steve: No. That's pretty clever. They would've pulled three bodies out of that rubble, assumed that Dekker's brother was killed for payback and Five-O got caught in the middle. No one ever would've suspected that this was all about keeping me from asking questions you didn't want answered.
Cobb: You should've listened to Sam, left this alone.
Steve: An innocent man died today. For no reason. And dozens, dozens of innocent lives were put in danger, all to clean up a mess that you made 40 years ago. Now, what happened in Cambodia? Who was buried in that grave?
Cobb: Consider your next move very carefully.
Steve: You consider yours. I still got DNA from that grave, and I'm gonna run it, so you might as well tell me who it belongs to.
Cobb: Lei Kuan Fat. Wo Fat's mother.
Steve: Why would you cover that up?
Cobb: Because it wasn't supposed to be her in that grave. Our target was Wo Fat's father, but the op went bad. My agent on the ground disappeared, leaving me to clean up her mess.
Steve: That agent was my mother, but she went on to work for the agency, while you were forced out. She didn't botch the job. You ordered an unsanctioned hit that went bad. Wo Fat's father is still alive, isn't he? Do you have any idea the fallout if that ever came to light? Where is he?
Cobb: Sit down. I'll tell you. [tries to pull out pistol but gets killed by Steve]

Peʻepeʻe Kanaka (Those Among Us) [4.20][edit]

[After some prodding by Chin Ho at spearfishing, Lou Grover dives down and catches a big fish]
Lou Grover: "A city boy", my ass.
Chin Ho: Take a look at that sucker.
Lou: How many did McGarrett get on his first try, you say?
Chin Ho: Half a dozen.
Lou: Oh.
Chin Ho: But I'll tell you what that's three times bigger than anything he caught.
Lou: You got your phone?
Chin Ho: Yeah.
Lou: Take a picture and send it to him.
Chin Ho: Oh, come on. You sure you want to kick up that hornet's nest?
Lou: Oh, hell yeah, I do! Come on, just take a picture.
Chin Ho: [as Lou poses] All right. All right. All right. Ready? Smile.

Steve: Physical therapy appointment huh?
Danny: Yeah, yeah, my mandatory hour of joy with Nurse Ratchet, thanks to you.
Steve: Thanks to me?
Danny: Uh-huh.
Steve: What, you're gonna blame that building collapsing on us on me?
Danny: I am.
Steve: And how exactly am I responsible?
Danny: Well, about four years ago, you can knocking on my door and told me that I had no choice but to work with you, so I figured everything that's terrible that happened to me since was your fault. You're like a cloud, a dark cloud, that never goes away.
Steve: Do me a favor, when you see Nurse Ratchet, have her, uh, check your head while she works the rest of you over, 'cause you got some damage up there, too.

Lou Grover: Well, excuse me, Jacques Cousteau. You know, jealousy is an ugly cloak, my friend. You do not wear it well.
Steve: "Jealousy"? No, no, no. Look, that fish was probably old, depressed, you know, maybe a little, uh, senile, you know, swimming around looking for a tiger shark to end his days, and then bumped into you.
Lou: A senile, depressed fish?
Steve: [deadpan] That's right.
Lou: [smirks] You are some piece of work, McGarrett, you know that?

Steve: [removes a bullet from Lou's bullet-proof vest] Look at that. Lucky twice in one day.
Lou: Only you can see getting shot as being lucky.

[Steve tries to talk some sense into Dawn Hatfield in the interrogation room]
Steve McGarrett: There was enough hardware in that house to make three bombs, Dawn. Why don't you tell me your plan? Maybe detonate an IED on the road leading into the Air Force base? Wipe out some innocent soldiers, then what, a couple of secondary devices to shred up the first responders? That sound about right?
Dawn Hatfield: "Innocent" soldiers? They drop bombs thousands of feet in the air, killing innocent women and children like cowards!
Steve: Cowards? You want to talk about cowards? You should have said so. Okay, let's talk about cowards. Why don't we start with your boy Nazaria, your mentor? Let's start with him. Where is he? He's hiding in a cave in the mountains of Yemen. You think that traitor cares about you? You think that piece of garbage gives a damn that your friends are dead and that you're gonna spend the rest of your God-forsaken life rotting in some federal prison?
Dawn: Muhammed Nazaria is a warrior; he's a soldier of God, pursuer of the truth and the light, okay? He is the leader!
Steve: Leaders lead from the front. And I don't see him, do you? Where is he? Don't you get it, Dawn? They found you, okay? Because they look for people like you. They look for people who are vulnerable, people who are emotionally fragile, who have a big wound on the inside, who are trying to get back at somebody for something. And they make you feel like you're an important part of something, a cause a cause bigger than you. So big, in fact, that it's worth giving your life for.
Dawn: I am a soldier of Allah, and we must fight you as you fight us. Those of us that believe must fight in the cause of God!
Steve: What are you talking about? These words that are coming out of your mouth, they're not even your words! They're phrases that have been cherry-picked from a holy book and tailored to fit the lies they've told you. Listen to me, all right? I get that it was rough growing up, your mom was alcoholic, your old man, he was never around, I get it. How old were you when he died? You were, like, eight or nine, right? I lost my old man, too. I know what it's like to lose a parent.
Dawn: I didn't lose him. He died, okay? He died fighting your imperialistic war against the peaceful children of Allah!
Steve: You're wrong. Your dad was a hero, okay? He was a patriot, a soldier fighting for his country, Dawn. You gotta remember him. What would he make of all this? You gotta know, somewhere inside you, that this is wrong. Some shred of regret.
Dawn: My only regret is that you stopped me.

Makani ʻOlu a Holo Malie (Fair Winds and Following Seas) [4.21][edit]

Lou: [notices Danny smiling] What are you smiling about?
Danny: Well, taking down a couple corporate scumbags...perfect way to end the day, right?
Lou: Yes, sir.

[A Taliban member prepares to behead Steve in an execution video]
Taliban Militant: Peace be upon those who believe. And to those who do not, know this: until you bow to His will you will never be safe. We shall bring the fight to your shores. Blood will be spilt in your streets and men like this [gestures to Steve] they cannot protect you. America is full of nothing but lies and debauchery. You are a nation without values. A nation of infidels. And now let this man's death be a lesson to you all. This is what- [video is interrupted by SEALS raiding the room and killing them]

[Catherine has told Steve she's staying in Afghanistan to find Najib]
Steve McGarrett: I'm gonna come back, all right? I'm gonna come back. We can do this together. I'll help you find him.
Catherine Rollins: Steve, no.
Steve McGarrett: Catherine...
Catherine: No, listen to me. You've helped me enough, okay? It's better for me to do this alone. I can keep a low profile that way. It's just easier. You know I'm right. You understand why I need to do this, don't you?
Steve: [sniffles] Yeah, of course I do. You just promise me...
Catherine: I promise you I'll be careful. I'll be careful, okay?
Steve: I love you, you know.
Catherine:I love you, too.
Steve: Okay.
Catherine: All right.
Steve: Good luck, Cath.

O ka PiliʻOhana ka ʻOi (Family Comes First) [4.22][edit]

[As Lou Grover talks to his daughter, Ian Wright cuts in on Samantha's end]
Lou Grover: Let me talk to my daughter.
Ian Wright: Oh, whatever you say, Pops.
Samantha Grover: Daddy, what's going on?
Lou: Samantha, honey, I want you to listen to me very carefully. The man that you're with is a very dangerous fugitive.
Samantha: Now, he's gonna want to hurt you Daddy, I'm scared.
Lou: Now-Now I know you're scared, but I need you to be strong. I'm gonna find you. I promise you. I'm gonna find you.
Ian: Now you got her all freaked out. All right? That's not going to help this thing at all.
Lou: You little son of a bitch. What do you want?
Ian: Stay close to your phone, I'll be in touch. And obviously, this stays between us. Tell any of your cop buddies about this, and you'll be using your daughter's college fund to pay for a funeral.

[Lou Grover is angry that an entrapment operation did not go well]
Lou Grover: It's not? You see any money in there? Because I don't! And without that money, my daughter is just as good as dead! [slams door] Aw! [sighs] Oh, God, she's just a baby. I'm-I'm so sorry, Samantha. [walks away and cries]
Danny Williams: [comes over to comfort him] Listen to me. A few years ago, uh, this guy that I thought I knew, he took my daughter. And, uh you know, I remember back then thinking I got two choices now. I can, uh, I can shut down, start mourning my daughter, or I could do anything and everything it took to run over whatever stood in my way to get my daughter back.
Lou: I can't stop thinking about her. I can't stop thinking about what she must be going through.
Danny: Right now you need to put that on hold. If you want to see Samantha, you stay focused on ending this son of a bitch. You understand?
Lou: Yeah.
Danny: Let's go get this guy.

McGarrett: How's forced retirement?
Lou: Well, the governor said that my actions were a gross abuse of power by a sworn officer of the law and my misuse of HPD resources was unprecedented.
McGarrett: So basically nothing I wouldn't have done under the same circumstances. [Lou chuckles]
