"Hawaii Five-0: Pilot (#1.1)" (2010)
Jack McGarrett: Listen to me, Champ.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Dad? I"m going to get you out of there, all right? Don't worry about it.
Jack McGarrett: I'm sorry that I lied to you.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Wha ? - Lied to me about what, dad? What are you talking about?
Jack McGarrett: I love you son. I didn't say it enough. Whatever these people want, Steve, don't give it to them! DON'T YOU GIVE IT TO THEM!

Victor Hesse: Put Anton on the phone... My brother's dead, isn't he?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Victor, listen.
Victor Hesse: ISN'T HE?... Then so's your father.
[Victor shoots Jack]
Det. Steve McGarrett: NO!

Governor Pat Jameson: I can help you find this son-of-a-bitch with full immunity and means. Your taskforce will have blanket authority to go after guys like Hesse, and *get them the HELL off my island*. Your rules, my backing, no red tape. And I promise you, Commander, what you see with me is what you get.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Here's what I see. An election year coming up and a politician who needs the PR. Who's willing to do whatever it takes, including bringing me down here to Pearl Harbor where my grandfather was killed. So I might feel some kind of obligation to fulfill my family destiny. Is that about right, governor?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [On his cellphone] Governor, I'll take the job. Let's just say I found something that changed my mind. No. No. No. Immediately. I'll transfer to the reserves and I'll run your taskforce. What? Right now?
[McGarrett raises his right hand]
Det. Steve McGarrett: I, Steven J. McGarrett, do solemnly declare upon my honor and conscience that I will act at all times to the best of my ability and knowledge in a manner befitting an officer of the law.

Det. Danny Williams: Yeah, but you know what? It's guy that think they can do everything better and that *only* makes my job harder.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You got no choice detective. The governor gave me jurisdiction. I'm making you my partner. We're gonna get along great.

Det. Danny Williams: [as McGarret exits the car] Hey. Hey! HEY! This guy Doran's a shooter, all right? We shouldn't be doing this without back up.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You *are* the backup.
Det. Danny Williams: I'm the back up? I hate him. I hate him so much.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett has Williams immobilized] Now, you don't have to like me. But right now, there's no one else to do this job.
Det. Danny Williams: Okay. Let me go.
[McGarret releases Williams]
Det. Steve McGarrett: All right, look, we have to find these human traffickers -
[Williams punches McGarrett]
Det. Danny Williams: You're right. I don't like you.

Det. Chin Ho Kelly: HPD accuesed me of taking payoffs. So I'm the last person the Department wants to see wearing a badge. I gotta go.
[Kelly starts to leave]
Det. Danny Williams: This is going really well.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Did you take the money?
Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Excuse me?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Did you... take the money?
Det. Chin Ho Kelly: No!
Det. Steve McGarrett: The come with us. And we don't need to talk about this again - ever. This is your ticket back into the game. Call it payback. Call it whatever you want. But I need you.
Det. Chin Ho Kelly: How do you know you can trust me?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Because my old man did.

Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Define "leverage."
Det. Steve McGarrett: Simple bait-and-trap. Wire up and undercover. Send him in.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Only one problem melihini. That might work well on the mainland. But we're on an island with under a million people. Which means the bad guys know the the good guys. So we need to look for our bait outside the box.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I take it, you got the perfect guy in mind.
Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Oh yeah!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Chin Ho about Kona] You sure she's ready for this? She's got no street experience.
Kona Kalakaua: [to a surfer who cut her off] Ho, brah.
[Kona punches the surfer]
Kona Kalakaua: Think twice next time you want to drop in on someone's wave.

Kona Kalakaua: [after the team bursts into the building with their van] You're early.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You all right?

Sang Min: What kind of cops are you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: The new kind.

Det. Steve McGarrett: There's something you should know about your brother.
Victor Hesse: What about him?
Det. Steve McGarrett: He died the same way you did.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Hey, get the Coast Guard to find that body.
Det. Danny Williams: What do you want me to do with this one?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Book 'em, Danno.

[approaching a suspect's house]
Det. Danny Williams: I really don't think we should be doing this without backup.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You ARE the backup.

Det. Chin Ho Kelly: How do you know you can trust me?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Because my old man did.

Steve McGarrett: I think I might know why your wife left you.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Really?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, you're very sensitive.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm sensitive, huh?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You think I'm sensitive?
Steve McGarrett: A little bit.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: When did you come to the conclusion that I was sensitive, huh? Was it when a bullet was tearing through my flesh? Is that when I seemed sensitive to you, huh? I am really happy you are not afraid of anything, okay? I'm glad you have that GI Joe thousand-yard stare from chasing shoe bombers around the world, okay? But in Civilized Society, we have rules, all right? It is the unspoken glue that separates us from jackals and hyenas, all right?
Steve McGarrett: "Jackals and hyenas?"
Danny 'Danno' Williams: "Animal Planet," whatever, okay? The point is, Rule #1: if you get somebody shot, you apologize!
Steve McGarrett: I'm sorry.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You don't wait for a special occasion, okay?
Steve McGarrett: I'm sorry.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Like birthdays, or friggin' President's Day!
Steve McGarrett: Hey, man, I'm sorry, okay? I said I'm sorry. I'm sincerely sorry. That what I was trying to tell you last year, when this conversation started.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Your, uh, apology is noted. Acceptance is pending.

Det. Steve McGarrett: I take it your marriage didn't end well.
Det. Danny Williams: No, it would have, had my ex not remarried and dragged my daughter to this pineapple-infested hellhole.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You don't like the beach?
Det. Danny Williams: No, I don't like the beach.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Who doesn't like the beach?
Det. Danny Williams: I like cities, you know, skyscrapers, no tsunamis, no jellyfish.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Tell me you can swim.
Det. Danny Williams: Can I swim?
Det. Steve McGarrett: You don't know how to swim.
Det. Danny Williams: I know... how... I swim... I swim for survival, not for fun.

Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Laser audio surveillance. You don't need a wire to get a confession out of your hupo ass.
Sang Min: [scoffs] I'm gonna sue you for entrapment. And when I'm done collecting, I'm gonna find that little hottie you sent in here, and this time, I'm gonna be less of a gentleman.
[Chin Ho backhands Sang Min with a cigarette ashtray; Steve enters]
Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Sorry, boss.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I didn't see anything.
Sang Min: You didn't see anything? Son of a bitch hit me!
Det. Steve McGarrett: You wanna file a report, you're gonna need a witness.

Det. Danny Williams: [explaining what "Danno" means] Gracie was three. She tried to say my name, and all that she could say was "Danno". That's all that came out. Danno, okay?
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's it?
Det. Danny Williams: That's it. That's it.
Det. Steve McGarrett: [pause] It's cute.
Det. Danny Williams: Shut up!


"Hawaii Five-O: The Late John Louisiana (#3.9)" (1970)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Looking at Tigner's body] You know something Danno?... Harry Quon finally made a mistake.
Danny: We've been waiting a long time.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [about Tigner] Two questions... Why did they bury him and then wipe the place clean?

Danny: What do you think, Steve?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Somebody went to a lot of trouble to walk away.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Two years, Danno, two years... And this is the first crack in Harry Quon's operation.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Harry Quon] How's business, Harry?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Harry Quon] Your boy Tigner... We found him in a hole in the ground over on Maui.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Harry Quon] You've had a long run, Harry... But this time you're finished.

Harry Quon: Someday... Somebody's gonna write a contract on you, McGarrett.
Det. Steve McGarrett: ...And when they do, tell that somebody not to miss.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danny after visiting Harry Quon] I had the feeling that Harry Quon didn't know Tigner was dead until I told him.

Che Fong: [Che has just lifted a thumbprint] Looks like a lady's thumbprint
Det. Steve McGarrett: Until you tell me who she is... You haven't told me anything, Bruddah.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Kono] If someone is moving in on Harry Quon, I wanna know about it... All about it.

Danny: [They have identified Julie's fingerprint] She was supposed to have died two years ago.
Det. Steve McGarrett: If that was Julie Grant's fingerprint... She was alive two days ago.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Looking for something, Nick?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Nick] You can tell Harry Quon that his smokescreen didn't work.

Det. Steve McGarrett: You get the contract again, Nick?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Julie about Nick] He's Harry Quon's number one trigger boy, and he's good at it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Julie] You got away from Harry Quon twice... And the odds are against you doing that again.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Charlie is dead] What's the matter, Harry?... Not what you expected?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Julie will testify against Harry Quon] You were right, Harry... The party is over.


"Hawaii Five-O: Good Night, Baby - Time to Die! (#4.21)" (1972)
Carol Rhodes: Have a drink, would you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, no thanks.
Carol Rhodes: Be human, c'mon. I just can't imagine a guy with a name like McGarrett not having one drink.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Hawaii became a state in 1959. That's when the governor appointed me to Five-O. By 1968 I was tired. So I took a vacation, got as far away as I could, to the snow in Switzerland.

Carol Rhodes: Well, I see you do your homework.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Always.

Carol Rhodes: [McGarrett closes the drapes in Carol's apartment] What are you doing?
Det. Steve McGarrett: L.B.'s out
Carol Rhodes: He's out... How?
Det. Steve McGarrett: He escaped.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Carol is planning to leave Hawaii] If you stay, we can protect you... If you run, he'll kill you.

Carol Rhodes: [McGarrett picks up a file folder] What's that?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Police file... I was away when L.B. Barker killed his partner, McCabe, and was convicted.
Carol Rhodes: What's in the second one?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Beckmann Museum jewel robbery... Ring a bell? That happened 30 days before McCabe was killed.
Carol Rhodes: And the third one?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I don't think this would interest you.
[McGarrett lays the folder down]
Det. Steve McGarrett: Here, it's yours.
[Carol's name appears on the file tab]

Carol Rhodes: [to McGarrett] Why were you away when it all happened?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I was tired.
Carol Rhodes: That's very funny... I never thought about policemen being tired.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Tell me about you.
Carol Rhodes: Tell you about me?... Well, I was what they called an abandoned child.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Carol] This robbery took place over a month before L.B. killed McCabe... No clues, no traces... Over a million in gemstones taken, some of them historically famous... Perfect entry, perfect getaway.

Carol Rhodes: [Carol is drunk] McGarrett, you're so serious... Look at me. I know I'm not that hard to look at.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You're not that hard to look at at all... But right now, I'm more interested in L.B. Barker... The more I know about him, the safer you are.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is suspicious of Carol] Funny thing about L.B. Barker's record... Lots of robberies, bad checks, stolen credit cards... But no assault, no violence. Not until he killed his partner, McCabe.

Carol Rhodes: I think you have a cop's mind... That's what I think.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's right.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Carol] I have a cop's mind, and that cop's mind keeps telling me something like this: Curator of a museum is found with two bullets in him... Three days before, that same museum is burglarized. Over a million in gemstones taken... Thirty days later, two known thieves have a shootout over something valuable... Now could it be?... Could it be that all three were involved?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Carol who is holding a picture of Townsend] Even gentle, educated men... When they're in love, when they need money for the girls they love, even they commit crimes... They forge, they embezzle, they steal.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [L.B. is calling] Now cry, plead, do anything... But stall.

Carol Rhodes: [Carol is suspicious of McGarrett] You're after something.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... I'm after the truth.

Danny Williams: [a stake out is prepared for L.B] We're ready for him.
Det. Steve McGarrett: We'd better be.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [L.B. flies at Carol in a rage, and McGarrett pulls him away] Don't blow it!... Don't blow it, L.B., you're off the hook.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan after playing back a tape that proves Carol killed Townsend] Book her... See you in court, L.B.

"Hawaii Five-O: R & R & R (#4.24)" (1972)
Doc Bergman: [Doc wants to remove Mrs. Syzmanski's body] Can we take her now?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, Doc... But as soon as you can, tell me something... Will you?
Doc Bergman: I can tell you something right now, about the murder weapon... A bayonet.
Det. Steve McGarrett: How do you figure?
Doc Bergman: Four years in the Medical Corps, that's how I figure... You see quite a few of these punctures in a field hospital.

Doc Bergman: Steve, your guy's cool under fire... Look at that
[a towel in the bathroom has blood on it]
Doc Bergman: He took the time to wipe the blade.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Thanks, Doc... I noticed.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Che is going over the door lock] Che, what have you got?
Che Fong: Crude job... Tried to jimmy the lock, but didn't know how.
Det. Steve McGarrett: What do you think?... Random kill, psycho, What?
Che Fong: Random, maybe... But he knew enough to wear gloves.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve has just told Augie that his wife was murdered] How was the marriage going?
Augie Syzmanski: Strong... Strong, beautiful and forever.

Doc Bergman: [Doc his giving his autopsy report on Mrs. Syzmanski to Steve] Stabbed her once, just below the sternum, using an upward thrust, penetrating the right ventricle, right atrium and aorta... The main chambers of the heart,.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Quick and sure, huh?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is discussing Mrs. Syzmanski's murder] It's as if she was struck by lightning... No rhyme or reason... If the guy was a psycho, where's his ego?... His mark?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Colonel Hart has arrived] Victim was Ella Syzmanski... She was waiting for her husband to arrive on rest-and-recouperation leave from Vietnam.
Colonel Ken Hart: How long had she been waiting?
Betty Hurlburt: Four days... Four long days.

Colonel Ken Hart: [Looking over Mrs. NIchols' body] Why stab her.?... It would have been easier to make it look like suicide here.
Det. Steve McGarrett: This way, he leaves us his message... Premeditated murder.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is getting really frustrated with the case] We're getting everything but leads.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Lt. Nichols] The killer knew that your name on that cable would bring Mrs. Carter here... Now, what is it that ties you and you and Lieutenant Carter together?
Augie Syzmanski: We were in the same outfit.
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, something more than that... and we've got two hours and 40 minutes to find out what it is.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Lt. Nichols] I'd say you were more interested in keeping that sharp outfit looking sharp... The guy needed a head doctor, and you give him a transfer... And you call that as an error in judgement?
Captain Dan Nichols: [Slams his fist on the table] That's what is was, McGarrett, and I've paid for it!... All right, maybe he did start flipping out , but when you and Victor Charlie are out in the boonies every night trying to kill each other, we all get a little weird!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Mrs. Carter;s plane lands, and she finds out from McGarrett that her husband was killed in action] What can I say, Mrs. Carter?... My deepest sympathy and my apology for being so brusque, but your own life is in danger right now.

Danny Williams: [Ralston called Mrs. Carter and hung up] Steve, why do you think he called, and didn't show up?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, that's just what's on my mind, and I don't like it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve and his men are escorting Cathy, posing as Mrs. Carter to the R and R center] Kono, when you get to De Russy, you make two rights to the R and R center.
Kono: Right... I know the place.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I want you at the door of that cab when Cathy gets out... And remember, Chin is going to the south door.
Kono: I remember exactly... I have a photogenic memory.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's photographic, Kono.
Kono: That's what I said.
[This triggers something Mrs. Carter said to Steve, and he turns his car around, and goes back to the airport]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve enters the plane, and Ralston has a gun on Mrs. Carter] Is that the way you won the DSC?... By killing women?
Thomas Robert Ralston: That sounds like the lint-free round-mouthed voice of justice... Where's that little handgun you dudes carry?
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Opening his jacket] I don't need one.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Ralston] No need to kill a widow.
Thomas Robert Ralston: A widow?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Lieutenant Carter was killed in action yesterday... Now the score is settled.
Thomas Robert Ralston: That's what's known as a right-quick Sunday lie.
Amy Carter: [being choked by Ralston] It's true.
Det. Steve McGarrett: The only lie around here is you, Ralston... You being a hero

Thomas Robert Ralston: [Ralston has been shot by McGarrett, and is dying] You didn't need one?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I was wrong.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve was cut by Ralston on his hand, and Mrs. Carter wraps the wound] Long day.
Amy Carter: The longest.
[Last lines]


"Hawaii Five-O: While You're at It, Bring in the Moon (#4.19)" (1972)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan] Let's go... We got a big one, Bruddah.

Morgan Hilliard: [McGarrett has been brought aboard Morgan Hillaird's yacht] Mr. McGarrett, I'm Morgan Hilliard.
Det. Steve McGarrett: And you're in a lot of trouble.
Morgan Hilliard: Not if you're the man I think you are.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett has been taken aboard Morgan Hilliard's yacht] Look, let's get one thing straight, Mr. Hilliard... Nobody takes me under duress and gets away with it... Nobody!
Morgan Hilliard: Duress?... You're not here under duress, Mr. McGarrett... You're here to work.

Morgan Hilliard: [Talking to McGarrett about the murder] I was a witness to the murder and I know you have questions... Go right ahead.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Here?... Without seeing the body or the scene of the crime?... No, it doesn't work that way, Hilliard.

Morgan Hilliard: Even now, I'm extremely uncomfortable in your presence.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well... To tell you the truth, I'm not exactly overjoyed to be in yours either.

Morgan Hilliard: [to McGarrett] So, have we reached an understanding?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No... No, you still think you're a privileged character.
Morgan Hilliard: Oh, but I am... I'm a very privileged character.

Morgan Hilliard: [to McGarrett] What you fail to grasp, Mr. McGarrett, is that we're on the same side in this thing.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Are we?... Aside from the dead man back there, so far I got you down for kidnapping and obstruction of justice.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [as he is leaving Hilliard's yacht] Tell your spies to stay out of my way.

Danny Williams: [McGarrett is surveying the crime scene] We recovered six of the seven slugs, Steve.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Six slugs and only two spent shells... That's lousy arithmetic.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett makes a recording to Hilliard] Hilliard, this is McGarrett... I'm going to the Attorney General to get a warrant for your arrest... Now, you can sit on that yacht of yours for as long as you wish, but it won't get that steam car built and it won't get you off the hook... You've gotta show up and face indictment... Cooperate, understand? Just like any other suspect... If you're clean, you can beat the charges... If you don't show up, we're gonna come and get you, and then we'll all know killed Felton, right?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Chin] Four suspects... What could be simpler?

Morgan Hilliard: [Hilliard is on the phone with McGarrett] What are you trying to prove anyway?... You must know by now that I didn't kill anyone. You're too smart not to.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, maybe I'm just a dumb cop, because I'm still not convinced.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Chin] Maybe we're not looking for a marksman... Our man could be an engineer.
[Cut to a picture of Byers on McGarrett's board]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett meets with Byers] Where is it, Byers?
Byers: What?
Det. Steve McGarrett: The rifle
Byers: [Holding a remote control in his hand] Well... If you must know, it's zeroed in, I'd say just about the base of your skull.

Det. Steve McGarrett: I hope that isn't a hair trigger.
Byers: [Holding remote control] Oh, but it is.

Morgan Hilliard: [Hilliard has been cleared] How can I thank you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Say thanks.
Morgan Hilliard: No, no, no... I wanna do something for you.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Just say thanks.
Morgan Hilliard: Anything you want... Just name it.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Hilliard, you haven't got the price.
Morgan Hilliard: I'll send you the first steam car off the line... How about that?
[McGarrett walks off]
Morgan Hilliard: McGarrett!... McGarrett!... MCGARRETT!
[McGarrett turns around]
Morgan Hilliard: Thanks!
[McGarrett flashes a shaka]


"Hawaii Five-0: Ke Kinohi (#1.13)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: How many were there?
Steve McGarrett: Three.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Three, okay, good, cuz I was wondering how one little burglar comes in and takes advantage of a Navy SEAL.
Steve McGarrett: They weren't burglars. Okay? They were professionals. They were organized and precise.

Steve McGarrett: Something's wrong.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Do me a favor, please. Will you not go there, okay? You don't know anything. Maybe she went out last night. Maybe she got a little goofy. She's sleeping it off. Let me be a little honest about something. If first thing in the morning, I see your face pop up on my phone, I might not answer it either.
Steve McGarrett: They didn't break into the house, Danny. And the only other person who has a key is Mary.

Steve McGarrett: How do you know Cop Shorthand?
Mary Ann McGarrett: Um, because I had this incident once in L.A.
Steve McGarrett: What incident?
Mary Ann McGarrett: It doesn't matter, all right?

Steve McGarrett: Because we busted a mole in there a while back. And if he found out you were there asking questions. He could've passed it on to all the wrong people. I mean, I can't believe you did all this, Mary.
Mary Ann McGarrett: Well, I mean, dad's a cop. You're like a freaking ninja. The least I could do was dial a phone.
Steve McGarrett: You're something else.

Mary Ann McGarrett: You know why dad shipped us away now. It's because mom was killed. He was trying to protect us. How are you going to find these guys Steve?
Steve McGarrett: I don't know. But the only other evidence that we had was in that toolbox, and now it's gone.
Mary Ann McGarrett: Wait.
[Mary takes her cell phone out of her poçket]
Mary Ann McGarrett: Not exactly.

Steve McGarrett: This is it. My dad was getting closer. He wanted to uncover the identity of the local oyabon, the boss. That's why they targeted him. The Yakuza wanted him dead. So they planted a bomb under his car. Only they didn't bet on my mother driving the car that day. And that's why my dad wanted me to find that toolbox. To finish this investigation that he started.

Steve McGarrett: Let me tell you something. I know who you are. I know what you've done to me and my family. And I'm here to tell you - no amount of money or manpower is gonna save you.
Hiro Noshimuri: Save me?... From what?
Steve McGarrett: From me.
Hiro Noshimuri: What did you say your name was?
Governor Pat Jameson: [Entering] McGarrett?

Governor Pat Jameson: If what you say is true, and you're gonna go after someone as powerful and as connected as Hiro Noshimuri, you better be damn certain you've got rock solid evidence and proceed with extreme caution.
Steve McGarrett: Duly noted.
Governor Pat Jameson: Because if you don't, I don't think I'm going to be able to protect you.

Steve McGarrett: [to Koji] I know you rigged that car. I don't have any proof. But I will. I'm going to do whatever it takes. I'm going to be on you 24/7. I'm going to dig up every skeleton, in every closet. And then I'm coming after you...
[Notices Wo Fat]
Steve McGarrett: You - what's your name?
Wo Fat: Wo Fat.
Steve McGarrett: Game's over. Go home.
Wo Fat: Yes sir.

Mary Ann McGarrett: This is so stupid. I didn't even want to be here. Now I don't want to go. It started to feel like home again.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about? This is always going to be your home. But while Koji is a free man, and until this is over and I know it's safe for you to be here.
Mary Ann McGarrett: I'm having a deja vu moment.
[Mary sniffles]
Mary Ann McGarrett: It's just like before when dad brought us both here but put us on different planes back to the mainland. I haven't talked to you in 10 years. And I never saw dad again.
Steve McGarrett: Hey. Hey. We're going to see each other again, okay? We will.
Mary Ann McGarrett: You promise?
Steve McGarrett: Yes. I promise.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Hiro's brother, Koji, was found dead an hour ago.
Steve McGarrett: How?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Car accident. Do you believe it?
Steve McGarrett: No.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [tracking Mary's cell phone] Chin, get a location?
Chin Ho Kelly: I couldn't get a lock. But the last signal that came from her cell phone bounced off a transponder near Punchbowl.
Steve McGarrett: All right, Chin, listen. It's coming from the trunk of a car, climbing upwards, all right?
Chin Ho Kelly: That's gotta be the Pali Highway. There are dirt roads that lead to the forest reserves right before Maunaili.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah.
[Steve turns on his siren and spins the car around]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Hey! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Pali Highway's that way.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, what? Why are you going this way?
Steve McGarrett: 'Cause we can't get there fast enough by car.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [after seeing Governor Jameson storm into McGarrett's office] That, uh, looked like it went really well. Should I pack now for Jersey?
Steve McGarrett: Not getting off that easy. I wanna know everything there is to know about Hiro Noshimuri, okay? I wanna know every business he runs, who all his employees are. All his family members, every friend he has. I wanna know where he eats, I wanna know where he sleeps. I want it all, okay? We're gonna tear into this guy's life and we're gonna rip it all apart.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I have never liked you more than in this moment right now. It's beautiful.

Steve McGarrett: My dad was a total pack rat. Kept everything from his days as a cop. If he's got a copy of his district picture, it's gonna be here.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: They make every officer take one. I blinked during mine; I look like I'm sleeping. Grace thinks it's hysterical.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: So you know, I have an amazing, amazing amount of respect for your memory, all right? But without hard evidence - hello? - without hard evidence, we cannot - NOT - go after Hiro or his brother. And I am sure your father was in the same position eighteen years go.
Steve McGarrett: Listen to me. I am not my father, okay? I don't have a wife and kids to protect.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That doesn't give you license to go out and do something stupid!
Steve McGarrett: Like what, put bullets in Koji and Hiro's heads?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, that would qualify.

Governor Pat Jameson: Is there any beer in this office?
Steve McGarrett: What?
Governor Pat Jameson: I have never known a Navy man who couldn't find a lady a beer.
Steve McGarrett: Uh, yeah, of course.
[Gets a bottle of beer out of his mini fridge]
Steve McGarrett: I'll, uh, scrounge up a glass.
Governor Pat Jameson: Eh.
[Governor extends her arm... Steve pops the cap and hands her the bottle]
Governor Pat Jameson: Thank you.
[Governor takes a swig straight from the bottle]


"Hawaii Five-0: Ne Me'e Laua Na Paio (#1.19)" (2011)
Jenna Kaye: I'm sorry, but this matter has been classified as above your pay grade.
Steve McGarrett: Why don't you unclassify it? And I won't even ask for a raise.
Jenna Kaye: Would you like me to have the director call the governor to compel you to hand over the files?
Steve McGarrett: ...
[Quietly]
Steve McGarrett: Are you threatening me?
Jenna Kaye: I just want to know if you want to make this hard on yourself or are we gonna get along?

Jenna Kaye: You obviously already know, I'm not on an *official* assignment.
Steve McGarrett: You're not even a field agent. You're a low level analyst. And that suit you wore this morning playing grown ups with me in my office probably cost you 2 weeks salary. I bet... I bet you've never even left your desk before.
Jenna Kaye: You need to leave.
Steve McGarrett: I think you've gone rogue to hunt down a man named Wo Fat. Couple months ago I met him on the 18th hole. He was playing a round of golf with the man that killed my mother. And if he's working with them, you need to tell me right now.

Steve McGarrett: Are you trying to tell me that Wo Fat ordered my dad's murder?
Jenna Kaye: I believe so.

Jenna Kaye: After 3 years of dead ends, I finally picked up a solid lead. Discovered that Wo Fat was here in Hawaii. So... I took leave from the CIA to track him down.
Steve McGarrett: Let me ask you a question: what are you going to do when you find him?
Jenna Kaye: Same thing you would do.
Steve McGarrett: Wait here.
[McGarret goes to his office]

Steve McGarrett: I plan to find Wo Fat. And if he's as elusive as you're saying he is. I'm going to need all the help I can get. You and I will meet tomorrow at Onofun Noodle House - it's on Leweres. 8 PM.
Jenna Kaye: I'll be there.
Steve McGarrett: Be there... Oh, and Kaye?
Jenna Kaye: Yeah?
Steve McGarrett: We'll get along just fine.

Chin Ho Kelly: [after Johnny shreds all 4 of his tires. Chin Ho chuckles slightly in disbelief] Did he really just do that?
[During a low speed chase]
Chin Ho Kelly: Oh put him out of his misery.
Steve McGarrett: All right.
[They block Johnny's path. Johnny gets out]
Johnny D.: Is there a problem officer?

Steve McGarrett: What makes you think I won't kill you right here in this restaurant?
Wo Fat: "The man who strikes first admits that his ideas have given out."-Old Chinese proverb.
Steve McGarrett: [McGarret pulls out his weapon and has it aimed at Wo Fat under the table] "Say hello to my little friend." - Old American proverb.

Steve McGarrett: What do you want?
Wo Fat: To know the man who is trying to know me.
Steve McGarrett: Well, what I know is that Hiro and Hesse both answer to you. Which means at the very least, you're an accomplice to my parent's murder. And at the most, you're directly responsible.
Wo Fat: Interesting theory.
Steve McGarrett: If that theory pans out. I promise you, I will find you, and next time - it will be on my terms.
Wo Fat: A little friendly advice, I wouldn't dig too deeply into your family's past. You might not like what you find.
[Pulls out some money]
Wo Fat: Dinner's on me.

Jenna Kaye: [McGarrett has kicked in her motel room door] I really wish you would have knocked.
Steve McGarrett: I did. Twice.

Steve McGarrett: That's my father's voice recorder. How'd you get that?
Jenna Kaye: How'd you lose it?
Steve McGarrett: It was stolen by a local Yakuza boss.
Jenna Kaye: Hiro Noshimuri.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, you can stop asking me questions you know the answers to.

Steve McGarrett: [holding a snow globe] Why would you steal this?
Johnny D.: I always wanted to go to Paris.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [in disbelief] You...?
Steve McGarrett: [laughs] You know what? It's a beautiful city. And if you ever make it, you should get yourself a snow globe, because this is Seattle.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's the Space Needle, not the Eiffel Tower, you schmuck.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: This is the CIA we are dealing with here. Okay, they wrote the book on advanced interrogation techniques which I am absolutely positive you have sitting on your bedside table right now. Okay? Just so you know, I understand. Okay, I would not mind a little one on one session with Jenna Kaye. The thought does stimulate my imagination, too.
Steve McGarrett: Legally the CIA can only interrogate foreign nationals.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [softly] Why do you do that? I had a little fantasy worked out. I mean, you're like a devourer of dreams. You know what I mean?
[He makes an eating motion with his hand while Steve sighs heavily]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Like, you eat them. You're like a little pacman in cargo pants.

Steve McGarrett: [At the scene of the victim dressed up as a super hero] Alright, let me guess. This guy thought he could fly.
Dr. Max Bergman: Ah. A common misconception. Although Captain Fallout dons a cape, he is not capable of actual flight. Merely super human leaping abilities.
Steve McGarrett: Max. Who's Captain Fallout?
Dr. Max Bergman: The fearless leader of the Wonder Seven.
[At Steve and Danny's blank looks, he explains]
Dr. Max Bergman: He acquired his powers when he was attacked by one of Hitler's radioactive German shepherds during the Battle of the Bulge.
[Steve and Danny still show no recognition]
Dr. Max Bergman: Huh? Wow. You guys need to brush up on your classics.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, no, no. We don't need to brush up on anything. You need to bring us all back to reality, here on Earth, and answer the obvious question of why this took a dive wearing tights.

Steve McGarrett: [Referring to Wo Fat] I got the highlights in your investigation file. He worked counter intelligence at the 6th bureau. He reached the rank of Colonel and then he suddenly disappeared, right?
Jenna Kaye: [Chewing gum] Disappeared for years. Whatever he was doing, he must have realized that government work doesn't pay too well because when he resurfaced, he was already a major player in the criminal underworld.
[She takes the gum out of her mouth and sticks it underneath the computer platform]
Steve McGarrett: [In complete disbelief] I'm sorry, what- what'd you just do?
Jenna Kaye: I'm sorry. What?
Steve McGarrett: [Pointing at the computer] That. What was that?
Jenna Kaye: Oh, you mean my gum?
Steve McGarrett: [His eyebrows shoot up] Yeah, your gum. This is a computer. It's not your high school desk.
[Waits until she removes the gum]
Steve McGarrett: Thank you.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to someone dressed as a dog in a vest at the comic book convention] What's up, dog?
[Smiling, he smacks Steve on the chest as Steve cracks a smile]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Funny, right?
Steve McGarrett: That is funny.


"Hawaii Five-O: No Bottles... No Cans... No People (#4.2)" (1971)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Arriving at crime scene] Another one?
Danny Williams: Looks like... That'll make five.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Who is it this time?
Danny Williams: Phil Hurley... Small time pimp and all-around good fellow.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Any other witnesses?
Kono: Maybe, but nobody's jumping up to volunteer.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to bartender] In the last month, four other guys in Phil Hurley's business walked out of joints and were never heard of again... Now, nobody ever saw anything then either.
Bartender: Is that right?

Johnny Oporta: [McGarrett has been visiting Johnny Oporta] Stop by anytime, McGarrett... My door is always open.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Not for long.

Johnny Oporta: [McGarrett arrives at Johnny Oporta's office] Is this a social call?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No... No, Johnny... It's business.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett wants an ID on Peter Yano's body] I want an ID, Doc... And I want it fast.
Doc: It won't be easy.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, you're always telling us you're the best... Prove it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Sally about Peter's murder] We're investigating right now... Every angle, every possibility.
Sally: Angles?... It's a straight line, McGarrett... I know it, you know it, everybody knows it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarett knows Johnny had something to do with Sally's disappearance] A word of advice, Johnny... If Sally Hodges doesn't show up very soon, feeling fine... I'd start worrying a lot.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is leaving Johnny Oporta's office] Hang loose, Johnny... While you still can.

Furtado: [to McGarrett] Got some more questions?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Just one... How many?
Furtado: How many what?
Det. Steve McGarrett: How many bodies have you taken care of for Johnny Oporta?

Johnny Oporta: You got nothing, McGarrett.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I've got you, Johnny... with a lock on it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is taking Johnny Oporta into custody] Book him, Danno.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Che finds the metal pin that was inserted in Sally's arm in the ashes] That's my corpus dilecti, Che.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to the syndicate man working with Johnny] That plane's leaving in 15 minutes... You have a ticket, be on it... And tell your friends in Detroit the deal is off... Permanently.
[Last lines]

Danny Williams: [Danny has found a lot of money in Furtado's car] Steve, you know that old car of Furtado's?... It turns out it's valuable, worth $27,500 in small bills.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well done, Danno... Well done.


"Hawaii Five-O: Bait Once, Bait Twice (#4.15)" (1972)
Manicote: [Steve phones Manicote looking for Howard Miller] Hello, Steve... What's up?
Det. Steve McGarrett: John, I don't have much time, We're looking for a man named Howard Miller... I understand that you've been in touch with him... Is that true?
Manicote: Yeah.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Good... Now, do you know where he is?
Manicote: Uhh...
Det. Steve McGarrett: John, are you there?
Manicote: Yeah, I'm here... I'm just thinking...
Det. Steve McGarrett: Thinking?... What are you thinking about?. I told you it's urgent... I need him.
Manicote: It's not that simple... Why don't you come over here, and I'll explain it to you.
Det. Steve McGarrett: No... No dice, no time... Now look, John... I don't know what's going on in your head, but at this moment, Miller's fiancee is on a ledge 18 stories up, and is threatening to kill herself... Now, he's the only one who can save her... Where is he?
Manicote: That's Millers... That's Miller's girl on that ledge?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yes
Manicote: All right... You meet me at HPD headquarters in five minutes.
Det. Steve McGarrett: What does HPD have to do with it?
Manicote: You want Miller?... Meet me there in 5 minutes.

Manicote: [to Steve who is about to take Howard Miller out of protective custody] It's on your head... You wanna take that responsibility?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yes, hold me responsible...
[He looks at Miller]
Det. Steve McGarrett: Unless Mr. Miller doesn't give a damn about what happens to his girl, in which case he can just sit here nice and secure.
Howard Miller: Let's go.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is giving instructions to his men while taking Miller out of protective custody] Keep your eyes peeled... This gentleman is hot... No sirens, don't exceed the legal limit, and we stop for all red lights... Okay, let's go.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan, while checking the room the Pro was in] Get Che up here... He's not gonna find anything, but get him started anyway.

Danny Williams: Steve, do you realize the guy had a dead bead on you the whole time you were in that window?
Det. Steve McGarrett: [In deep thought] Yeah... But he wasn't looking for me.

Manicote: [after Miller has been murdered] What shall I say, Steve... A mistake in judgement?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Look, don't tell me I made a mistake!, I'll tell you... I blew it top to bottom! Somebody counted on me to deliver the body, and I did!... That building wasn't picked by accident. Somebody knew my routine down to the fact that I went to that barber every Tuesday!... They knew I could get to the girl first. They knew that I could deliver Miller faster than anybody else... I was twisted, manipulated, used... Now, you want Bonamo?, I'll give you Bonamo on a plate... But not for gambling
[Raps his hand on the desk]
Det. Steve McGarrett: Murder... Murder one!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Mrs. Landers, who is in the hospital] I don't know if you realize it, but at this moment you are an accessory to a murder.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Questioning Mrs. Landers, who is in the hospital] Do you know who Barry Bonomo is?
Betty: He's the gambler, isn't he?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, a man who will go to very great lengths to collect a debt.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [after he shows Barry Bonamo the evidence against him] Okay, the DA wants you badly, almost as badly as I do... Maybe you can make a deal with him to cop a plea, but not with me... I just wanted you to see a beautiful lock... Kono, book him... Murder one.

Bonamo: [to McGarrett as he is about to be booked] McGarrett, I didn't do it.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Can you refute the evidence?
Bonamo: No, but I didn't do it... It's a frame.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Ah, frame... I was waiting for that golden word... GET HIM OUTTA HERE!

Bonamo: McGarrett, if there's a guy in this town who should know a frame, it's you... So you gotta get me off.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I've gotta get you off?... BOOK HIM!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Danny has a puzzled look on his face] What's bothering you?
Danny Williams: The evidence... It's almost too good... Mostly, if Bonomo wanted to hit the hit man, why would he plant $10,000 on him with his fingerprints all over it?

Mariss: [after being apprehended by Dan] Bait?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, bait... For the second time... Pretty good trick you dreamed up, Mariss... Good enough for us to use it.

Betty: [Mariss tried to kill Mrs. Landers, and has been arrested] Does it ever go away?
Det. Steve McGarrett: What?
Betty: Being afraid.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, it goes away... It goes away
[Last lines]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett and Dan are going through the car where the hitman was found] Did you check this?
[He points to money]
Danny Williams: Yeah... Didn't count it, but there's thousands of dollars... Bonamo?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, Bonamo!... I'm gonna peel his hide... Bring him in.


"Hawaii Five-O: Skinhead (#4.18)" (1972)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett arrives at the hospital, and wants to know Nora's condition] Is she conscious?
Danny Williams: She is now.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Nora] Is there anything you can tell us that might help us find him... Anything you might remember about him?
Nora: He was bald.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Completely bald?
Nora: His head was shaven.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan] Any decent description of the skinhead?
Danny Williams: Practically the same as hers... Big, strong, bald as an egg.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Dan and Chin] I want him!... I want this guy!... I've heard a hundred different reasons for murder, but whan a man beats a girl like that and rapes her, there's only one reason... He's turned animal... He's gone rabid. Now, we're dealing with a mad dog... And I wanna nail him and put him away before he attacks somebody else.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan and Chin] Can you think of a better place to look for a skinhead than in the military?

Manicote: [Steve and John are discussing the case against Kenner] You find me that other customer, and I'll hand you the conviction on a tray
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Shaking hands with John] Shine up that tray, John

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to bar owner] Know what's gonna be bad for your business?... You! Know what's gonna cause you to lose your license or go broke?... You! Because I'm gonna put a man in here starting tonight and every night, and he's gonna be waiting and watching... And the minute one beer goes across this bar to somebody one day underage... The minute some pothead lights up a joint in the can or the minute there is one fight or some drunk gets served a drink when he should have been sent home... WHAM!, there goes your license!

Det. Steve McGarrett: Chin, crank up the computer... I wanna find a gas station attendant named Chris.
Chin Ho: No last name?
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's why we need the computer.

Mitch: [to McGarrett] I don't know what you're so upset about... She's not even white.
[Kono flies at Kenner in a rage]
Det. Steve McGarrett: [after pulling Kono off of Kenner] Lots of luck with your client, Mr. Tosaki... You're defending a real doll.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett thinks Kenner's actions are strange] Kenner is calm and smirking... Acting like he just won the push-up contest at Muscle Beach.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett knows they missed something about Kenner] Let's have a look at that record.
Chin Ho: Well, we've looked at it backwards, forwards, and sideways, Steve.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well then, let's look at it upward and downward... Because something is missing.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [after he reveals that Luke was the real rapist] You wanna make a statement, Luke?... You raped that girl after Kenner beat her senseless!

Luke: [Sobbing] I'm sick.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Boy, are you ever.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Kenner] Why would you risk 25 years for something you didn't do?
Mitch: 25 years?... I'd risk 50 years to keep the guys in the outfit from finding out that I'm not a man anymore.
Det. Steve McGarrett: A man?... Do you know the meaning of that word?... You haven't got a clue, have you?... You haven't got a clue.
[Last lines]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is discussing Kenner's medical condition with his men] In August of 1969 in Rochester, New York, while thoroughly juiced, Kenner slammed his car into a thru-way overpass at about 90 miles per hour... He fractured his pelvis and he ruptured his posterior urethra. He spent three months in a Rochester hospital... Rochester Central... The pelvic fracture knitted properly, and the urethra was surgically repaired... But, in the accident, Mitch Kenner suffered irreparable perineal nerve damage, resulting in impotence... Doctor Camden-Smith of Toronto is an expert in the reversal of the condition and the restoration of potency... He's also expensive. Mitch Kenner has been paying for the four operations ever since.
Danny Williams: [Looking shocked] You mean he's still impotent?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Totally and permanently.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Chin, you're gonna make a speech tomorrow.
Chin Ho: Me? What do I talk about?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Law and order.
Chin Ho: For or against?

Mary Ann Whalen: Dr. Fremont is a saint. A medical genius. And she's curing Tommy!
Det. Steve McGarrett: She's a quack. She couldn't cure a ham.

Frank Zipser: Mr. McGarrett, we are so to speak, in business.
Det. Steve McGarrett: We are in business.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [talking to his sister] I'm a cop, remember sis?

Det. Steve McGarrett: My sister did the Paul Revere bit, huh?
Dr. C.L. Fremont: Uh huh... The cops are coming.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dr. Fremont] You sold me that treatment machine because I laid 700 bucks under your greedy little nose!

Dr. C.L. Fremont: Even now, I feel something for you... You feel it too, come on admit it.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'd rather take up housekeeping with a cobra.

Dr. C.L. Fremont: "Know thine enemy", Napoleon... Good advice.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Who am I to argue with Napoleon?

Dr. C.L. Fremont: McGarrett, look... I'm not looking for an ally, just a truce.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Not a chance!

Mary Ann Whalen: [Refuses to believe that Dr. Fremont is a quack] Look, Steve... I don't believe you, and I never will!
Det. Steve McGarrett: The court will!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett has just found out that his sisters baby has died] How right can you be, Danno?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Danny about Dr. Fremont] On this one it otta be murder on a hundred counts!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to cab driver] This smog could choke a skunk.

Dr. C.L. Fremont: A man irresistible... I think that's why I sold you that machine.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You sold me that machine because I laid 700 bucks under your greedy little nose!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to his sister about Dr. Fremont's machine] You could plug that stupid thing into any wall socket and that two-bit transformer drops it down to 32 volts... Just enough to give the sucker that deep therapy hum...
Mary Ann Whalen: That's a terrible thing to say, Steve!


"Hawaii Five-O: A Matter of Mutual Concern (#4.11)" (1971)
Tasi: [Tasi is caught by McGarrett after killing Afuso] The speedometer on this car says it goes up to 120 miles an hour, but I was flooring it and it wouldn't go past 90!
Det. Steve McGarrett: Call Ralph Nader!

Danny Williams: [Looking at French McCoy's ID] Francis J. McCoy, Miami Beach, Florida... Francis J.?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, French McCoy
Danny Williams: One of Big Uncles's men.

Det. Steve McGarrett: French McCoy doesn't take vacations... When he travels, it's strictly business.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan as they are recovering French McCoy's body] I wonder how Big Uncle is gonna take this.

Danny Williams: [Looking at French McCoy's body] Too bad he can't tell us who knifed him.
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Noticing French McCoy's finger missing] Maybe he has.

Tasi: [McGarrett has Tasi in his office] Are you going to arrest me, McGarrett?
Det. Steve McGarrett: NOT A CHANCE!... I'm not gonna do you any favors!

Det. Steve McGarrett: When that finger gets back to Miami, you're a marked man, Tasi... Think about it.
[McGarrett points to his head]

Tasi: [Tasi is leaving McGarrett's office] Oh... In order to aid the man that you will send to follow me... I'll go at once to my bowling alley... I will not go to visit that stupid Jap, that powdery Chinaman, or that Gook slob.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Wait a minute... This is Hawaii, U.S.A... It's time for your English lesson... Repeat slowly: Japanese, Chinese, Korean.
Tasi: You know what you can do with your English lesson
[Tasi spits]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to his men, fearing a gang war on the island] Well, they're not gonna turn this island into their battlefield!

Det. Steve McGarrett: Come on, Kono... We're gonna pay a visit.
Kono: To who?
Det. Steve McGarrett: That powdery Chinaman.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve wants to inspects Jake's bag for weapons] Open it.
Jake: That's unreasonable search and seizure.
Chin Ho: He's memorized the constitution.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Jake is being escorted back to his plane] Aloha, Mr. Hirsh.
Jake: Aloha to you pal... And ram it!
[McGarrett smiles]

Det. Steve McGarrett: Kono, go get Li Wing and Kim Lo Lang... I want them here in this office right away.
Kono: What are you gonna do, Boss?

Det. Steve McGarrett: Che, make it fast will ya? They've got the feathers ready, and the tar is about to come to a boil.

Det. Steve McGarrett: The noose is getting tighter... It's perfect, not a flaw in it. You can forget about any local hoods... A frame this ingenius is beyond them. Somebody's been building this for at least three years. Expert forgers, all that money. Why? Who?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is lying in an upside down car] Danno, is that you?... What happened?
Danny Williams: We don't know.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is inside an upside down car, and talking to Dan in a weak voice] I know I was in the office at midnight, Danno... I know I was in the office at midnight, Danno...

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is in the hospital, and is paralyzed] Diagnosis, Doc?
Dr. Shimel: Nothing certain at this time, Mr. McGarrett.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Best guess?
Doc Bergman: You might as well level with him, George... He'll hound you until you tell him.
Dr. Shimel: You have an injury to your spinal column.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is talking to Dan, and realizes he is not paralyzed anymore] Look at my hands! I can... I can move them Danno!, I can move them!

Danny Williams: Steve, they found your car parked and locked in Benny Jalor's driveway.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Oh, this is a too well-planned a frame for the car keys to be anyplace but in my own coat.
[Steve opens the closet and finds the keys in his coat pocket]

Che Fong: [to Steve] You know Lieutenant Commander Smallitt?
Det. Steve McGarrett: For just about 15 years... How are you, George?
Lt. Cmdr. Smallitt: Hip-deep in an old code: 326J
Det. Steve McGarrett: Jaybird?... That code was retired just before Panmunjom.
Lt. Cmdr. Smallitt: Somebody's been using it.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Who?
Lt. Cmdr. Smallitt: You, Steve.

Danny Williams: Somebody spent an awful lot of time on this.
Kono: And money... Two million ain't a little bit.
Det. Steve McGarrett: How many people can you think of with that much money, that much time, first-rate counterfeiter, patience, access to the nerve gas they used on me, and the technical skill to rig and handle it... I can think of only one man...
[Cut to Wo Fat climbing out of a submarine]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is briefing the governor on who he thinks is behind the frame] It's got to be Wo Fat... He's the only man with the cunning, the resources, and the finances to build a frame like this.
Governor: But why, Steve?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I don't know, Sir.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve meets his double] Well, I'll be damned.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett's double has been shot, and is dying] Who are you?
McGarrett Imposter: Rip... Rip van Winkle.

Karl Albrecht: [after McGarrett's double dies] Finished?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Just beginning.

Danny Williams: In court, I'd have to say the entries were made by you.


"Hawaii Five-O: Is This Any Way to Run a Paradise? (#4.13)" (1971)
Kono: They sure knew what they were doing.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That kind of turns you on, eh, Kono?
Kono: Yeah. It's the first time anybody's done anything about these big smudge pots!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Reading the note] "Stop poisoning the air. Kaili wants the sky to be blue. E Ku Kaili Moku."
[Looks to Kono for a translation]
Kono: "E Ku Kaili Moku." Kaili is risen.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Kaili?
Kono: One of our ancient Hawaiian gods. The god of battle.

Det. Steve McGarrett: You mean one guy carried all that weight up a hundred-and-forty-two-foot stack?
Chin Ho: Yeah. A guy like that can go bear hunting with chop sticks.

Clyde Finley: Look at this town, McGarrett. We have a scenic view of high rises and traffic jams. We have the beginnings of Los Angeles smog and a New York indifference. Now I ask you, is this any way to run a paradise?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, but do you think Kaili's tactics are the best way to clean up these islands?
Clyde Finley: No, I don't. But I know human history began with an act of disobedience, and that it's likely to end with an act of obedience.

Fire Chief Maka: [to Steve watching Danny climb the smokestack] How did that yo-yo get up there?
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's my yo-yo, Chief.

Kono: [after Steve reads the note left by Kaili] E KU KAILI MOKU... Kaili has risen,
Det. Steve McGarrett: Kaili?
Kono: One of our ancient Hawaiian gods... The god of battle.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is trying to find out about the feathers found on the war mask] Perhaps you can tell me where this bird comes from.
Miss Weston: Well. there are only two nests left at Rabbit Island... There used to be hundreds.
Det. Steve McGarrett: What's happening to the species?
Miss Weston: Between oil spills, pesticides, and sewerage, the white tern's been virtually annihilated.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Miss Weston about the white tern] You seem to have a particular interest in this bird.
Miss Weston: I have a particular interest in all breeds, Mr, McGarrett.

Det. Steve McGarrett: One of these days, I may just take up bird watching.
Miss Weston: When you do, let me know.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Upon hearing that someone carried a steel plate weighing more than a hundred pounds up a 140 foot smokestack] You mean one guy carried all that weight up a 142 foot stack?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Commenting about Kaili] Maybe we're overreacting... Maybe some guy just has a thing about incinerators.

Kono: [Talking about Kaili] I got a hunch we're gonna be hearing more from him.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Are you hunching or hoping, Kono?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [a man claiming to be Kaili is being led away by Dan] That gentleman could use a seven day examination in the state rubber room, Jenny.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Holding goggles of the crop duster pilot that Kaili shot down] This... This is attempted murder.


"Hawaii Five-O: Wednesday, Ladies Free (#4.3)" (1971)
Det. Steve McGarrett: I want every particle of dust, every piece of paper in her desk, contents of her pocketbook - everything! Then I want to know everything about the girl. Then get me the information on the other five and a couple gallons of coffee. Don't make any plans for tonight or tomorrow because we're not gonna leave the office until something breaks. Tell Chin and the others.
Danny Williams: I don't see Jerry around.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You better believe it!

Det. Steve McGarrett: Book him. Murder One.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Arrives at crime scene] Another twist of the knife?... Who's number five?
Danny Williams: Angela Waring.

Kono: [Looking at victim's face all made up] Really weird, the way he makes each one look the same.
Chin Ho: Yeah... Like a painted doll.
Det. Steve McGarrett: ...Or a hooker.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Jerry] If you have to bleed, bleed in private... I - I don't wanna watch it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Jerry] If you were on the force, I wouldn't let you near this... and you know it.

Jerry Rhodes: [to Steve] So, what do you want me to do... Go back to my office?... Set up a divorce raid?... Maybe find a missing person?
Det. Steve McGarrett: It's your business, Jerry.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to his men] We know two things about how the killer gets in... One, that it's impossible... Two, that he does it.

Jerry Rhodes: [Steve bursts into Jerry's apartment] Steve, what's the matter?
Det. Steve McGarrett: You held out on me... And I don't like it!
Jerry Rhodes: I don't read you.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Oh, you read me.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Jerry] You want to find this guy, and you wanna kill him!... And I'm not gonna let you!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Dan at a car wash] All right, you're a killer in search of a victim, what do you do?
Danny Williams: [Pulls out a name tag] I've got a name, and I got an address.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... And I've got a key.
[Presses key into clay, making a duplicate]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Jerry has just killed the psycho] You get an A for marksmanship, Jerry... Three shots, three hits.

Danny Williams: Jerry, you got your car?... Need a lift?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, Danno. No... We'll be giving Jerry a lift... Book him, Murder one.
[Last lines]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Jerry] You're off the case!... No special privileges, no police information... Nothing!


"Hawaii Five-0: Ho'apono (#1.7)" (2010)
Steve McGarrett: You okay?
Boatswain's Mate, Ed McKay, 1st Class: Getting shot hurts.
Steve McGarrett: [laughs]

Laura Hills: Now ususally SWAT would handle something like this, but the Governor seems to think with your background as a SEAL, you'd be better equiped to handle this situation.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Him? And me - I'm here for what? The entertainment or what?
Steve McGarrett: Well, you can tell SWAT to sit tight. I'm going in alone.

Steve McGarrett: Graham's a SEAL. He's been trained in close-quarter combat which means right now, he has the high ground. You send in SWAT in blind, they're going to take heavy losses and more than likely get multiple hostages killed. If this guy didn't kill his wife, he deserves at least a conversation before we go in guns blazing. If he did, and he's gonna kill again, I'll take him out myself. But if you want my help today, you get in my way. I'm going in alone!

Steve McGarrett: Now listen, I'll have my phone on me, but don't call me, I'll call you, okay?
Kono Kalakaua: Bet you've used that line before.
Steve McGarrett: I'll initiated contact once I'm in a secure location.
Chin Ho Kelly: That one too.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay, all right, listen. I know this guy is a SEAL, all right? Brothers-in-arms, the whole thing. I get that. But that does not mean he did not kill his wife.
Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett sighs] You're right. You're right but I promised him we would investigate this murder.

Steve McGarrett: I thought I told you to stay put.
Boatswain's Mate, Ed McKay, 1st Class: Hmm? I'm an old man. I don't always hear so good. Hmm?

Steve McGarrett: My team's motto is "Leave no man behind." Now we just need to find him.

Boatswain's Mate, Ed McKay, 1st Class: I lied about my age to enlist, you know. I was 16 at the time. They found out. But the officers liked me. They kept me around as a runner. So that's what I was doing December 7, 1941. Running messages to the army at Fort Shafter across the harbor. I could see those explosions, those men I admired so greatly. They gave their lives for all of us. And I couldn't do a damn thing for them. I walk past the Arizona Memorial everyday, and I am reminded of their sacrifice. The man you are named after was a real hero. You should be very proud.
Steve McGarrett: I am proud.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: *You* need to end this hostage situation, and whatever you do - please - under no circumstances tell this guy about his daughter.
Steve McGarrett: He should know.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, no. He shouldn't know! He shouldn't know. Trust me, as a father, the last thing you want to hear about, is that something happened to your kid. And you add that to his irrational state of mind, things are only going to get worse.
Steve McGarrett: Copy that.

Steve McGarrett: I need my pack. This has gone on *way* too long. It ends now!

Steve McGarrett: You okay?
Boatswain's Mate, Ed McKay, 1st Class: Getting shot hurts.
Steve McGarrett: What were you thinking?
Boatswain's Mate, Ed McKay, 1st Class: Well, "Leave no man behind."

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay. Uh, let's say I am you and you are the bad guy here, okay? I would know that all the ways onto the ship are visible somehow. So how would you outsmart yourself and get yourself onto that ship without yourself seeing yourself?
Steve McGarrett: Okay, was that an actual attempt at a question or are you just kind of throwing words at each other and hoping they make sense?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: How are you gonna get on the ship without Graham seeing you? That's all.
Steve McGarrett: Graham's expecting a threat from land, not from the water. I'm just gonna go for a swim.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [laughing] You're gonna go for a swim?
[Steve pulls his shirt off]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You're serious? And now you're shirtless. That's great.
Steve McGarrett: Believe it or not, I've done this before.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You've done this before? You've snuck onto a floating museum to rescue a bunch of tourists who're being held captive by a man who is accused of killing his wife?
Steve McGarrett: Well, I didn't mean this literally, but... look, I can't see any other way of stopping this thing from escalating. We only have four hours.

Steve McGarrett: So, uh, we've got abductors. We've got a witness that puts another man in the house at the time of the murder. And we got somebody else's prints on the blade. You know what, Danny, this is really starting to look like
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [interrupting] Graham didn't do it. I know. But it's not over yet.
Steve McGarrett: We need to find a match on that print, Danny.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: *You* need to end this hostage situation. And-and whatever you do, please, under no circumstance tell this guy about his daughter.
Steve McGarrett: He should know.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, no. He shouldn't know. He shouldn't know. Trust me, as a father, the last thing you wanna hear about is that something happened to your kid.


"Hawaii Five-O: 3,000 Crooked Miles to Honolulu (#4.4)" (1971)
Det. Steve McGarrett: Aloha. Aloha, suckers!
[Last lines]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Upon looking at the list of stolen travelers checks] Mobs must be slipping... Fencing this stuff is like trying to sell hot badges at a policemen's picnic.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is discussing the stolen traveler's checks with Frank] How do you figure something like this?
Frank Okawa: Who knows?... There's always somebody who thinks he can beat us... Til they find out they're wrong.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [the teacher on the plane was just murdered] What have we got, Chin?
Chin Ho: He caught two in the head from a piece with a silencer... No witnesses, nobody heard anything... A professional job.

Det. Steve McGarrett: A college professor gets sick on a plane, and gets hit less than an hour after he lands in Hawaii... Why?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Dan has information on the teacher that was murdered] Checks in Philly?
Danny Williams: Yeah... That and a rundown on the murder victim from the California State Police.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Let's have it.
Danny Williams: Whitney Davis, age 40, unmarried, economics instructor, Pacific Western College... Now away on a summer vacation. It all checks out, except for one thing.
Det. Steve McGarrett: What's that?
Danny Williams: The real Whitney Davis just sent his brother a postcard from Paris.

Danny Williams: [to Steve] The report just came in on the dead man's fingerprints... Guess who just became a school teacher?
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Reading from file] Real name, Floyd F.X. O'Neal... Alias Foxy O'Neal, alias Francis Rogers, alias Harpy Wilton... Hometown Chicago, five arrests, three convictions... Embezzlement, bunco, and fraud.

Det. Steve McGarrett: A Chicago hood comes over here with a teacher's group, and he gets hit by a syndicate torpedo who also happens to be in Hawaii. Now why?... Why?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Chin] Well, it's a jigsaw puzzle... But I can't see the picture yet.

Professor Ambrose Pierce: [On hearing McGarrett's theory that there may be crooks within his club] Your theory is highly unlikely.
Det. Steve McGarrett: But possible, you will admit... Huh?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Chin about the scheme] Of course this was inevitable... Just like every other part of this crazy jigsaw puzzle's inevitable... What a scheme.

Det. Steve McGarrett: First, the heist in Denver, three quarter of a million dollars in traveler's checks... Then they peel off 10,000 dollars and plant them in Philly to make it look like the gang headed east, but really comes here to Honolulu... On a weekend when all the banks are closed.
Chin Ho: A hundred fifty crooks with phony teacher's ID cards.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I assume they're all phony, except the Professor's. Which means it's probably his plan... With the backing of the mob. A perfect plan. But then...
Chin Ho: Guy gets sick.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, he's taken to a hospital babbling... Mob is afraid he'll give them away.
Chin Ho: So, they hit him quick... That stops the babbling.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Picture complete!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [On plane's intercom] Ladies and gentlemen, this is not your Captain. There will be no departure time, and you trip will average 20 to 30 years... And if you're tempted to try anything foolish, just look out the windows of both sides of the plane.
[Police cars and a paddy wagon are arriving]


"Hawaii Five-O: ...And I Want Some Candy and a Gun That Shoots (#4.6)" (1971)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Upon arriving at sniping scene] Danno, Better get a chopper in here... We're gonna need some eyes.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Duke, I want every available man out here.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Gunman fires rifle] Duke, I figure that rifle has an effective range of at least 500 yards... I don't want any man close enough to take one if he opens up.
Duke Kanaha: Right.
Det. Steve McGarrett: And Duke, contact Army Engineers... I need blueprints, any specs they may have of those bunkers... Get them for me.
Duke Kanaha: Got it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan about the sniper] He couldn't have picked a better place to hole up if he'd combed the whole island.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Dan about the sniper] There was a medal of honor winner a couple of months ago... He held a hill just like that all by himself for 15 to 16 hours... Reports credit him with 41 dead and 60 some-odd wounded, and the guy said he was a lousy shot... Our sniper is a marksman, you imagine what he can do?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Trying to get a rundown on the sniper] What do you know that I don't, Danno?
Danny Williams: I just talked to Chin... He searched Shiner's apartment. Found a collection of marksmanship trophies and a drawer full of loaded weapons.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That figures.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Doctor Fernando about the sniper] How many does he have to kill before he quits!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Realizing they might have to shoot it out with the sniper] Danno, you better have Duke unpack the bulletproof vets, and the small cans of tear gas.

Sue: Are you Bill's momma?
Ann: [to McGarrett] Who is this tramp?
Det. Steve McGarrett: She's your son's wife.

Danny Williams: [Dan misses the sniper, and is shot] Steve, I missed.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Hold on, Danno, hold on... We're coming up.
Danny Williams: He'll chop you up.

Danny Williams: [Dan has killed the sniper] I got him.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Danno!... Danno!, are you alright?
Danny Williams: I'll live.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... Yeah, I think you will... Well done, Danno.
[Last lines]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Duke, surveying the bunker where the sniper is holed up] Tunnel, ammunition storage, dead ends to the heart of the mountain... Four feet of reinforced concrete on every side... He sure picked the perfect spot.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Mrs. Shem, that sniper on top of the hill was hospitalized sometime between February and May... Did your son contact you during that time?
Ann: He seldom comes to Maui, and I never come to this pesthole.


"Hawaii Five-O: Run, Johnny, Run (#2.17)" (1970)
Napua Mala: If John is trapped, he will fight.
Det. Steve McGarrett: And the Navy will fight back... I won't. Mrs. Mala, unless there's no other way.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Mrs. Mala] The state of Hawaii has no capital punishment... The Navy does.

Napua Mala: I need time.
Det. Steve McGarrett: So do I... The more you take, the less I have.

Det. Steve McGarrett: What are you doing up this late?
Kono: You know this Hawaiian... Never sleeps.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That'll be the day.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan] My friend, John Mala, just overpowered two guards, and grabbed himself a loaded .38... And he's out on the town.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Commander Anderson] When I was in the Navy, they taught us that an officer's job was to take the objective with minimal cost... Now, have they changed the rules?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Commander Anderson] Are you gonna give up 10 of your men to take one that might have been talked down?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Trying to get John to surrender] John... I'm not a mountain goat!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [trying to get John to surrender] John... There's a whole squadron of SP's down there... And they're aching to get at you!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve comes in all dirty] Jenny, get me a clean suit, shirt, tie, the works... But get me the D.A. first.

Danny: [Steve comes into his office all dirty] Steve, what happened to you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I ran into a rhino.

John Mala: I'll take whatever the Navy dishes out... And come up grinning.
Det. Steve McGarrett: The Navy dishes out nothing... You get out what you put into it.


"Hawaii Five-O: Rest in Peace, Somebody (#4.10)" (1971)
Danny Williams: [Talking about the phone call Steve received] Steve, you don't think this could be a crank call, do you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Oh, how many cranks could walk in here and plant that book in my desk?... No, Danno, no... This is no crank.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve's private line rings, and he addresses his men] It's my private line... It could be our boy again... I'll try to hold him off for as long as I can.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to the governor when he finds out Cameron is out to kill him] Sir, if I had another thousand men and a month more to prepare, I couldn't begin to cover you for that parade.

Governor: [McGarrett and the governor are discussing Cameron's record] Just out of curiosity, what kind of record did he have in other areas?... Was there a giveaway?
Det. Steve McGarrett: You could cut your finger on the creases of his trousers... Fifth in his class at the academy, first in marksmanship.
Governor: That's not a comforting thought.
Det. Steve McGarrett: It wasn't meant to be, sir.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is discussing Cameron with the governor] I'll deal the cards straight up. If Cameron gets a shot at you, he'll hit you... There's no question.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Kono has been shot, and is on his way to the hospital] Some guys will do anything to get Kamehameha Day off.
[Last lines]

Cameron: [Cameron is on the phone with Steve] So, how close are you to nailing me?
Det. Steve McGarrett: You'll know that when I put my hand on your shoulder.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is talking to Cameron on the phone] Are you ready to tell me who the target is yet?
Cameron: Maybe... Could be Danny... Have you checked the trunk of his car yet?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett arrives for work,finds an envelope with a key and receives his first call from "Mona"] Hello.
Cameron: Morning, Steve... Did you get the note I sent you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, I just got it... Who is this?
Cameron: Funny you should ask. I'm an an anonymous caller... Got your tape recorder going yet?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah.
Cameron: Curious how I got your present number?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, how did you get it?
Cameron: I was in your office, and copied it down... No big thing, easy... Anyhow, why I called is to find out if you know what that key fits.
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, I don't... Do you wanna tell me?
Cameron: I'm a sport... But you're such a big detective, I want you to dazzle me with your brilliant powers of deduction... I want you to figure out whose door the magic key fits.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Why is that?
Cameron: Because I'm gonna kill him... Listen, while I got you on the phone, call Eddie at the Advertiser and ask him to read you Mona's letter... That's about it, Steve. So long. See you later.
[Mona hangs up]

Det. Steve McGarrett: ["Mona" calls Steve in his office] McGarrett.
Cameron: Hello, Steve, do you think you can foul me up by holding the story back from the press?... There's no way! I can send them all the story... I'm gonna be in the evening papers and all over the TV news tonight... How do you like that, hot shot?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I don't
Cameron: Well, that's tragic, but people have a right to know the news... And just because you're screwing up is no reason to hold out on them is it?... When the governor drops, everybody should know how bad you blew it, right?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Right... What are you hung up on?
Cameron: Dumbness!
Det. Steve McGarrett: But you're smart.
Cameron: I know you got an automatic trace going on any calls on this line, Steve... You're not gonna stall me until a blue-and-white gets here.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, I was just trying to let you down easy because you're not so smart after all.
Cameron: That's why I'm already apprehended, right?... Get off it, dummy. You'll never find me unless I want to be found. I'm gonna tell you why, Steve... You got two bad habits. You think you got brains... That's one. And second... Forget it, it wouldn't help.
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, tell me... Or are you worried that HPD is moving in on you right now?
Cameron: I'm not stupid!... It's you that's stupid. But that doesn't stop you, does it?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Stop me from what?
Cameron: Playing judge! Tin idol!... Judging better men than you are!
["Mona" hangs up]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is discussing protecting the governor] What good is a dead governor, Sir?
Governor: What good is a governor who concedes to threats?

Danny Williams: [Dan, Chin and Kono are discussing "Mona's" motives] What would you do if you put yourself in somebody's place who wanted to hurt you?... I mean really put you through torture? What would you do?... In their place, I wouldn't kill you... It's too easy, too fast. But what happens to you if I kill the governor?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... Yeah, a lot of things go down the drain... Five-O's reputation, mine.
Danny Williams: Because you were personally responsible for the governor's safety.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Marty] We know all about your "legitimate businesses", Marty... What are you doing in Honolulu?... Taking over a local racket?... Meeting with the boys from Miami and New York?... What's going on, Marty?
Mauritany: Now look, McGarrett, you have a subpoena, you lay it right here. If not, get out!
Det. Steve McGarrett: All right, now hear this, mister... You can stay in Hawaii. But one slip, one schtick... And you're gonna feel like Kilauea went off right under those sixty dollar shoes... That's a volcano. You got the message?

[last lines]
Det. Steve McGarrett: Let's go. We'll send your bags, home.
Bonnie: Won't we need our clothes?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Oh, you won't need much. You'll find that prison denim wears like iron.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Martin Mauritany, big syndicate man from Chicago... Track record in gambling, narcotics and extortion... Now headed for Honolulu.
Chin Ho: With bodyguards.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, Why?... Why?
Danny Williams: Guy like Mauritany wings here with muscle... Gotta be bad news.
Chin Ho: For whom?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Kono, run down to Hotel and Maunakea Street... Put your ear to the coconut wireless and see if you can pick up any static... Chin, check the airlines, big hotels... See if anyone else in Mauritany's leage is headed in.
Chin Ho: You figure a syndicate meet?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Could be... He's due to arrive at 1:30... Danno, let's run out to the airport... The man comes to Hawaii, he should have a welcoming committee.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Clem and Frank have been brought in for questioning, and Steve must leave] Give them something to read.
Danny Williams: What?... The new pension plan?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Arriving at the scene of Marty's murder] Chin, anybody hear anything?
Chin Ho: Negative... No one saw, no one heard... Not even next door.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Silencer.
Chin Ho: Yeah... Strictly pro all the way.

Che Fong: I must be living right... Got an easy one for a change.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Fingerprints?
Che Fong: Right... Four sets, nothing light, nothing smudged... They could all win picture contests.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett emerges from the basement, and Charlie is driving a forklift] Hello, Charlie
Charlie Saunders: What do you want, McGarrett?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I didn't know you were out.
Charlie Saunders: If you're trying to get me fired, you're wasting your time... They know all about my record here... They beleive in giving people a chance.
Det. Steve McGarrett: So do I, Charlie... So do I.

Kono: [to Steve about Charlie] Didn't you work on that case, Steve?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Worked on it, slept on it, put him away.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Chin thinks there may be a connection between Chang and Charlie] Charlie's strictly a loner... Never worked with anyone in his life.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is trying to find the connection between Chang and Charlie Saunders] What's the link?... What's the link?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett catches Charlie and Chang escaping into the tunnel to the bank] Using Clem and his truck was a smart diversion, Charlie... But there was a hole in your plan.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is briefing his men after Marty's murder] All three confirmed alibis... In other words, gentlemen, we're batting zero.
Danny Williams: Zero minus two... Mauritany's bodyguards were picked up last night at the Wiki Wiki Bar on Kulamanu Street... They were there from 4:30 to 8... Absolutely confirmed by dozen witnesses.


"Hawaii Five-O: Odd Man In (#4.14)" (1971)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett gets a phone call from Filer] McGarrett.
Lewis Avery Filer: There you are, McGarrett... Tell me, have you got your tape going?
Det. Steve McGarrett: You better believe it... What's the game this time, Filer?
Lewis Avery Filer: Oh, I wouldn't think of telling you... You'd much rather work it out for yourself, but I will give you a hint... Exactly 2.3 miles off Kaena Point on Route 93. Have you got that?... Just where the blacktop begins.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, go on.
Lewis Avery Filer: I suggest you be there by 4:15 this afternoon... Look for a red and white helicopter flying low under radar... That would be roughly northeast.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, and why should I do that?
Lewis Avery Filer: Because you've kept this island remarkably clean of hard stuff, McGarrett... I'm sure you want it to stay that way.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Look, Filer... Don't con me, just get to the point.
Lewis Avery Filer: The point is narcotics... A thoroughly rotten business. I'm sure we can agree on that.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, and that's about all.
Lewis Avery Filer: Perhaps, but that is enough because it means you'll be there. I know you, McGarrett... You can't sit still and watch $4 million worth of cocaine land on this island, can you?... Well. aloha.
[Filer hangs up]

Danny Williams: [Filer has disappeared] No trace of him, Steve.
Det. Steve McGarrett: No... Of course not.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to himself after Filer has disappeared] Okay, Filer... Score one for you.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan] Goro Shibata... How long have we been trying to nail him?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to his men when he finds out Goro Shibata was in Hong Kong] You can buy anything in Hong Kong... Cocaine included.

Danny Williams: [to Steve] Why would Filer impersonate Zeigler?... I mean, considering the risks... What's the point?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Maybe Shibata is in the market for a trouble shooter... Zeigler was the best.

Danny Williams: [to Steve] I wonder if Filer knows what he's getting into.
Det. Steve McGarrett: He better, Danno... Or he'll end up dead.

Lewis Avery Filer: [McGarrett gets another phone call from Filer] Ah, there you are McGarrett.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, and getting closer all the time.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan after talking to Filer] He's not after the cocaine... Apparently he never was. It's the money he wants, all of it... All four million.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Filer holding the money intended for the warden] This did you in, you know... You could have mailed it.
Lewis Avery Filer: What?... and trust the mails?

Lewis Avery Filer: [McGarrett is about to take Filer into custody] I'm surprised at you, Mr. McGarrett.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'm surprised at you, Mr. Filer.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is taking Filer into custody] Federal prisons are harder to break out of, you know.
Lewis Avery Filer: Yes... I'm rather looking forward to that.


"Hawaii Five-O: Cloth of Gold (#4.20)" (1972)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan upon arriving at the crime scene] Better get started inside, Danno.

Det. Steve McGarrett: All right, Doc... What's the story?
Doc Bergman: I'm not sure... Very strange. Something hit his central nervous system... Turned the lights out, but fast.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Nervous system?... What does that mean?
Doc Bergman: Some sort of cerebrovascular accident... We'll have to put the pieces together. It will make for an interesting autopsy.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Not for Mingo.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Looking around at the people attending the party] The cream of society, Eh Danno?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Referring to Mingo] What happened to your partner?
Wallis: He got sick... He just got sick and died.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Referring to Mingo's death] Black magic?
Akamai: You figure it out, pal... That's your job.

Det. Steve McGarrett: You three are partners, is that right?... Who gets Mingo's piece of your real estate shill game?
Wallis: Oh no, McGarrett... that's no way to talk to respectable businessmen.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Wallis] How many people have you swindled?
Wallis: Now, now, McGarrett... No unsubstantiated charges.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Okay, I'll put it another way... How many phony real estate lots have you sold?
Wallis: Oh, have it your way... Four thousand, give or take a few.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to the attendees at the party] All right, the party's over... Let's all go home. And no sudden departures from this rock.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is talking about the scam Mingo and his partners were running] A guy in Indiana buys a lot from these people... Never seen, of course... Buys it from a description in a brochure... Finds out that he bought a quarter acre of lava rock.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve and Kono are after Manoa] Manoa had it planned very well... He had the shell out of the tank before we put a watch on it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve boards Manoa's boat] I'm sorry about your daughter, Manoa... But I've gotta take you in... You've already killed three men.
Manoa: How can you arrest a dead man?
[Manoa presses the cloth of gold against his chest, and falls overboard]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve and Kono are looking for Manoa] Kono, if you wanted to hide in a canebreak, what island would you head for?
Kono: Hawaii... The big island.


"Hawaii Five-0: Ho'opa'i (#1.21)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Please don't do that.
Steve McGarrett: What?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Please don't put both hands on the wheel. Everytime you do that something terrible happens and I have to pray. Please.
Steve McGarrett: Just hang on to something.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Wait. Wait.
[Danny buckles his seat belt]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: So we need to call HPD. Radio silence on this case = right now!
Steve McGarrett: Hold up a sec. Wait a minute. We know he's listening in on the radio, right? Well, why go silent? Why not give him something to listen to?

Steve McGarrett: Well, if you decide to raise him out here, let me know. I could use a man with your skillset.
Chin Ho Kelly: I'm down with that.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, as long as you don't mind getting shot at, never getting to drive your own car.
Reggie Cole: Well, I'm going to bring Cannon down first. I may come back and take you up on your offer. Thank you - all of you.

Steve McGarrett: Okay, so everything you're gonna cook for me this week is gonna have Spam in it?
Kamekona: Of course. It's Hawaiian steak. The nectar of the islands.
Steve McGarrett: Do you know what's in Spam? Okay, I'll tell you. It's processed pork parts, salt, and meat stock.
Kamekona: That's what give 'em the glaze. Taste.
Steve McGarrett: I don't wanna taste!

Steve McGarrett: Something's missing.
Kono Kalakaua: Yeah. Answers.
Chin Ho Kelly: [a truck pulls up, and an agent approaches them] Looks like we're about to get some.
Agent Allison Marsh: You Five-o?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, I'm Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett.

Agent Allison Marsh: Well, gentlemen, this is an FBI matter now. And the FBI will be taking over the case. Thanks for your effort.
Steve McGarrett: First of all - you're welcome. Second of all - a little boy's going to grow up without a mother because of a leak in your agency!
Agent Allison Marsh: Listen to me. You *cannot* go after Jimmy Cannon.
Steve McGarrett: Watch me!

Reggie Cole: Look my job was to get Jimmy Cannon. I don't know who shot me. I don't know who set me up. All I know is that Jimmy Cannon ordered the hit! Now look - look I know you guys are trying to do your jobs... but Jimmy Cannon killed my wife. He killed a Federal Agent. You don't know who you're dealing with. He's going to put walls up in front of you wherever you go.
Steve McGarrett: We're going to go wherever the case takes us. And let me tell you, you want guys like us on this, because we'll go through those walls.

Agent Allison Marsh: I want to talk to your boss.
Steve McGarrett: Lady, I answer to God and to the Governor. Neither of whom are going to help you out right now. So take a seat!

Chin Ho Kelly: If you go to this much trouble to kill somebody, why use a bullet at half its force.
Kono Kalakaua: [Flashback] This one's got a pulse.
Steve McGarrett: [Present] You wouldn't, unless you didn't want them killed. You only wanted to wound, and give them an alibi that no one would question.
Reggie Cole: Now you got it.

Steve McGarrett: Let me tell you how this is gonna go, okay. You're gonna tell us *exactly* what we want to know, or I'm gonna leave you in the room alone with Reggie for a while. What do you think? It's your choice.

Steve McGarrett: You thought Richard was the only good and clean thing in your life, didn't you Jimmy?
Reggie Cole: Your time is up, Jimmy. I'm going to hunt you down like a dog. Everytime you go outside, everytime you hear the siren, everytime the wind blows, you know that I'm coming. You believe I'm coming.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Alright, listen. We know who Jimmy Cannon is. What we do not know is who Reggie Cole is going to be if he finds out who the leak is or if he tracks down one of the shooters.
Steve McGarrett: You were married. You have a daughter. What would you do?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Well, I- I would like to just kill everybody. But, I would never do that, okay, I would not risk going to prison. I could not do that to Grace. You. Forget it. I don't even wanna know what you would do.
Steve McGarrett: I would be by the book.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [In complete disbelief] The- the book?
Steve McGarrett: I would be by the book.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Which book would that be? I ask. Huh? The Patriot Act for Dummies? Hm? How to Nuke Your Enemies? War and Peace? Minus the peace part?


"Hawaii Five-0: Malama Ka Aina (#1.3)" (2010)
Steve McGarrett: [Danny covers Grace's ears] What's wrong with tennis, Danny?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'll tell you what's wrong with tennis. It can be played on a table which makes it an activity not a sport. You throw the ball to me, I catch the ball. *That's* a sport. It's my duty as a father to teach my daughter the difference.
Grace: Dad, I can still hear you.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Uncovers Grace's ears] You're not supposed to be listening to me, because you're supposed to be paying attention to football. It's a sport.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [On his phone to his ex] That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my life. Violence follows me? I mean, how do you even come up with something like that. No, what happened here has nothing to with my job. In fact, it's just the opposite, okay? She *is* safe because I *am* a cop... H uh? I can't - I can't even do this right now. She'll be there in 5 minutes an officer's bringing her home. Yeah. Goodbye.
[Ends the call]
Steve McGarrett: Can't wait to meet your ex.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah. Two of you can plan my demise.

Steve McGarrett: You know when I was a kis, this island seemed like it was the safest place on earth.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's the great thing about being a kid, you don't know any better.
Steve McGarrett: You could leave your door unlocked. No one would bother you. And if people had a beef, they'd settle it with their fists, not guns.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Back home, you win a fight. You go home, lock the door *twice*. Because you know someone's coming after you with a gun.
Steve McGarrett: God.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Think maybe Hawaii's catching up with the times.
Steve McGarrett: Maybe.

Steve McGarrett: Let me break it down for you, okay? Kids with guns kill innocent people and cops!
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Right.
Steve McGarrett: Now that kid, maybe he's going to finish a math assignment. More likely, he's looking for another gun so he can shoot someone. Why? Because you convinently decided to forget about the law!
Danny 'Danno' Williams: He's angry because someone killed a member of his family today and he feels like if he doesn't do something about it, nobody will. So let's prove him wrong. Come on, we have a job to do.

Steve McGarrett: Law enforcement is Chin's family business. So when he lost his badge, he lost his family. If he wants to wear a badge, he has to be able to deal with things like this.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You weren't held as a baby, were you?
Steve McGarrett: It's called tough love.

Steve McGarrett: Let me ask you something. How far deep did you have to dig? I mean how much of your sould did you lose by actually appreciating me?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Uh, measuring.
Steve McGarrett: Right. Maybe you're not alone around here as you think, Danno.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I just got one question: What's a quarterback doing with the number fifty?
Steve McGarrett: No. It's five - oh.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah.
Steve McGarrett: NO, it's not fifty, it's five-oh. It's what my dad used to call our family because we weren't native Hawaiians. So he nicknamed us "Five-oh's." After the fiftyth state in the union, I don't know. I guess it was his way of making us feel like we belonged, I guess.
Kono Kalakaua: Hmm. I like that. Five-oh.

Kono Kalakaua: [at a high school football game] How did you miss that face mask call, ref? He only tried to gouge the kid's eyes out. You suck!
Steve McGarrett: Ah, glad she's on our team.
Chin Ho Kelly: No, she's just getting warmed up.

Chin Ho Kelly: [watching an old tape of McGarrett playing football] See, now I gotta admit. That was a beautiful play.
Steve McGarrett: Thank you.
Chin Ho Kelly: Your dad couldn't stop screaming.
Steve McGarrett: You were there with my dad?
Chin Ho Kelly: [stopping the tape] Yeah. I was fresh out of the academy, he was my training officer. I'll tell you, any day that Steve McGarrett was starting at quarterback was an official day off.

Steve McGarrett: Law enforcement is Chin's family business. So, when he lost his badge, he lost his family. If he wants to wear a badge, he has to be able to deal with things like this.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You weren't held when you were a baby, were you?
Steve McGarrett: It's called tough love, partner.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Ah.
Steve McGarrett: Oh and, by the way, I was held. Okay? I have photos if you want proof.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Photo shop.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Referring to a pizza restaurant that is delivering guns] This town could use a good slice. It's a shame we gotta put 'em outta business.
Steve McGarrett: You should try Ialani's in Waikiki. They have the best ham and pineapple in the world.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh! Oh!
Steve McGarrett: What?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Let me... explain something to you, okay? Pizza... is mutz, sauce and dough. That is it. Alright? You, uh, wanna put a pepperoni on your slice, that's fine. But, ham? Out! Fruit? Out! Okay? I don't care where we are. Pizza and pineapple do not belong in the same air space.
Steve McGarrett: I guess you feel quite strongly about this.

Steve McGarrett: [When Danny's cell phone rings with the Star Wars Storm Trooper theme] That's cute. Your ex get a new ring tone?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, it's... the miserable attorney.
[Answers the call]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yes, Lord Vader.


"Hawaii Five-0: Po'ipu (#1.9)" (2010)
Laura Hills: It is critical that General Pak attend this summit, McGarrett. That's why the governor has you on this. You're to find Atwater's killer and assist in protecting General Pak and his family when they arrive.
Steve McGarrett: I'm sorry. Assist? Whom am I assisting?
Laura Hills: [Taylor starts to enter] This is...
Steve McGarrett: No way! What's up, Bullfrog?
Nick Taylor: Smooth Dog, been a while.

Steve McGarrett: No foreign dignitary has ever been killed on US soil. General Pak is not about to be the first.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah well, I just want you to know something. When I took an oath to protect people, General Pak was not who I had in mind.
Steve McGarrett: Me neither.

Steve McGarrett: [after being yelled at by a woman in Burmese] What did she just say?
Nae Shan: She wants to know why the police are protecting a monster like General Pak. She asked how a man can do that and still call himself a man.

Kono Kalakaua: It's a locked NFN file. National security. Even you don't have the clearance to view it.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh good. So the killer is C.I.A.
Steve McGarrett: *Ex*-C.I.A. is my bet.
Kono Kalakaua: So does anyone know someone who can open a locked C.I.A. file?
Steve McGarrett: I might.

General Pak: I'm going to testify at the U.N., against the Military Junta, and my chairman. I'm going to admit to the world what I've done and pay for the crimes I've committed.
Steve McGarrett: Oh that's - that's good. But you should have told us, okay? Somebody should have told us.
General Pak: The information was too dangerous.
Steve McGarrett: THAT INFORMATION IS MORE DANGEROUS IF I DON'T HAVE IT! MY ENTIRE TEAM COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED, NOT TO MENTION YOUR FAMILY.
General Pak: MY TESTIMONY WILL END THE WAR! The suffering. Save me and my family, and you save a country.

Steve McGarrett: Longboards on me?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Absolutely... Could I see your wallet, please? Last time you offered to buy me drinks, you convinently left your wallet. I got stuck with the - You don't have your wallet, do you?
Steve McGarrett: It's like I said, you have good instincts.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: You have got to start doing a better job picking your friends.
Steve McGarrett: Tell me about it. I chose you, didn't I?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah.

Steve McGarrett: What is that?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That is a picture of Grace.
Steve McGarrett: Not that. THAT.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh, that's a visual aid. A reminder of a better place.
Steve McGarrett: A visual aid? Danny, this is a postcard of New Jersey.

Steve McGarrett: General Pak has a lot of people who hate him. So don't confuse making a threat with being one. Forget the cranks and focus on the people who actually have the means to pull something like this off.

Steve McGarrett: Why'd you run?
Nae Shan: I don't like police.
Steve McGarrett: [sarcastically, to Kono] That's original.


"Hawaii Five-O: Sweet Terror (#2.7)" (1969)
Det. Steve McGarrett: Either we nail Stoss now or we'll be growing toadstools instead of cane!

Det. Steve McGarrett: How come someone from Five-o missed a pretty girl?
Danny: I guess I was thinking of the beast.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well... As of now, we think of beauty and the beast, huh?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Doc has just done an autopsy] Doc, do you mind telling me, or should I read about in in the medical journal?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Hendricks] Men like Stoss, wherever they go, bring death and destruction... Why did he come to Hawaii, WHY!... I can't figure that out!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is apologizing to Danny] I guess the Beast is on my back.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is visiting Mariana in the hospital] We'll meet again.
Mariana de Nava: Will we?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... I have a strong feeling that Erich Stoss will bring us together.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Mariana has just died] She was killed... By a Beast.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Stoss wants to use Steve to escape] Oh, we make a deal?
Prof. Erich Stoss: Let us say a compromise we can both live with.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Stoss] A beast belongs in a cage!

Prof. Erich Stoss: I do expect justice.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You'll get it Stoss... Life without parole.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Hendricks] You tell me, I'm in!... You don't, I'm out!... Now name the players and tell me the stakes... That's all I ask!


"Hawaii Five-O: Follow the White Brick Road (#4.23)" (1972)
Danny Williams: Steve, ship's empty except for a token watch. What do we do?
Det. Steve McGarrett: What do we always do, Danno? We wait. We wait.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Five-O. Now talk fast - who's the dealer?
Hard Hat: I don't know, I don't know anything!
Det. Steve McGarrett: What do you mean you don't know?
Hard Hat: I don't know. Just two-hundred bucks for the pick-up, that's all I know! That's honest!
Det. Steve McGarrett: You're in trouble, buddy. Ten to twenty hard time. Now talk fast - who's the dealer?

Adm. Sample: Steve, what would you say to planting one of your men aboard the Haskell?
Det. Steve McGarrett: My very thoughts, sir.

Governor: Well, Steve... It looks like your gonna get your reserve training early this year.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'd like to hold that ace until we need it, Governor.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Doc has found a chemical in Woodley's system] Let me understand this... You mean a single drop on a man's sweaty hand, for instance, could cause death?
Doc Bergman: In less than an hour.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Claude, who is John Haskell?... Dealer, Supplier?... Nobody we know.
Claude Wells: I do... The USS John Haskell leaves Subic Bay tomorrow morning... Coming back from a tour with the Seventh Fleet.

Claude Wells: [Woodley delivered a kilo of heroin] Woodley delivered that kilo, pure.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... 10,000 jolts floating around.

Claude Wells: Nothing here, Steve... Nothing at all.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, he collects tattoos... That rose on his arm is a fresh one... Danno, get Kono on it. Every artist has a signature... I wanna know who left that one on the kid.

John Dillon: [Dan opens Dillon's bag, and finds a lot of money] I won it playing craps.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Sure... You're under arrest, sailor... We'll check your fingerprints... You'll have a good time explaining how Surigao got aboard the Haskell to shoot craps... You're out of the dirty junk business, sailor, like 5 to 10 at Portsmouth.

Surigao: [McGarrett seizes all of Surigao's money] Please leave it alone... Don't take it away from me!... THAT'S MY MONEY!
Det. Steve McGarrett: Shut up!... Sure, it's your money... You can spend what's left after back taxes and penalties... Maybe you can spend every cent after you get out of the federal pen... Maybe in 50 years.

Claude Wells: [Steve, Claude, The Admiral and Governor are discussing an undervoer assignment] A good cover would be an assistant to the Chief Medical Corpsman... That way he could work closely with Franklyn.
Adm. Sample: We could put him aboard at Subic...
[to Steve]
Adm. Sample: Got a man who qualifies?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yes sir, I have just the one.


"Hawaii Five-0: Ua Hiki Mai Kapalena Pau (#1.23)" (2011)
Steve McGarrett: Gearing up, huh?
Jenna Kaye: Yeah.
Steve McGarrett: Good for you. Forgot one thing though.
[McGarret pulls out his handcuffs]
Jenna Kaye: What are you doing?
[McGarrett handcuffs Kaye to the police car]
Jenna Kaye: WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THOSE?
Steve McGarrett: You're not a field agent, okay? You're an analyst.

Steve McGarrett: Correct me if I'm wrong. But wasn't there a car attached to you?
Jenna Kaye: Oh weird.

Steve McGarrett: I'm guess that bomb on the door was intended for Wo Fat.
Sang Min: Doesn't matter now, does it? We both missed our shot. But I might be able to give you a second chance. What's it worth if I help you find him?
Steve McGarrett: "What's it worth?" Not much, okay? Considering you've already burned us once.
Sang Min: Well, the situation has changed.
Steve McGarrett: All right, you want to make a deal? Great. Here's what I'm prepared to offer you.
[McGarrett ends the call]

Steve McGarrett: How you feeling?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh, I don't know. I feel like everything hurts. My head feels like it's gonna explode - like the worst hangover I ever had.
Grace Williams: What's a hangover?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: It's uh - you'll figure it out. You'll learn about it one day, when you're about 35?
Steve McGarrett: 35 - 30 - 60.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: 40 years olds.

Jenna Kaye: You shifted in your chair and touched your face as you were answering the question. Those are both signs of deception. Plus you added unnecessary details about delivering the papers just to make your lies sound more credible.
Steve McGarrett: Does Jeff know that you're using his house to cheat on his sister?
Elliott Connor: What? That's absurd!
Jenna Kaye: Wow. Mock outrange - that's a bad one.

Chin Ho Kelly: You've got your money back. Let it go!
Chairman David Akahoshi: I'm sorry but I can't do that. I know you were just trying to protect your family. Which is why I am not going to charge you with obstruction of justice. I'm not even going to ask where you got that money. Your uncle stole from the Honolulu Police Department which means he stole from the people of Hawaii, and he's going to have to answer for that.
[Akahoshi leaves]
Steve McGarrett: I, myself, am going to ask where you got this money.
Chin Ho Kelly: Markum.

Chin Ho Kelly: Steve... I didn't have a choice.
Steve McGarrett: Listen to me, all right? You did this for your uncle. You don't have to explain anything else to me.

[last lines]
Sang Min: You don't understand. I'll plead to any charge. Take the maximum sentence. As long as you put me in protective custody.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh yeah? What happened?
Sang Min: Wo Fat. I tried to make things right with him.
Steve McGarrett: What did he say?
Sang Min: He told me he's not gonna rest until I'm dead. And then when I am, he's gonna come after you next.

Steve McGarrett: Hey, Gracie.
Grace Williams: Uncle Steve!
Steve McGarrett: Hey.
[they hug]
Steve McGarrett: Hey, kiddo.
Grace Williams: Where's daddy?
Steve McGarrett: Listen, Gracie, Danno's, uh... Danno's not feeling the best, okay? So I'm gonna take you to the hospital. We're gonna go see him.
Grace Williams: Is he gonna be okay?
Steve McGarrett: "Is he gonna be okay"? Let me tell you something about your father. He might not talk like it, but he is one tough guy. And he's brave, as well. Can you be brave like Danno?
[Grace nods]
Steve McGarrett: Are you sure? Then we should go see him.

Chin Ho Kelly: [after Kono has called him back over to Danny who is starting to convulse] He's starting to convulse!
Steve McGarrett: Danny? Stay with me, Danny. Danny?
[Camera shows Danny coughing and shaking]

Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know, we have become very close.
Steve McGarrett: Did you say gotten very close? We've gotten very close?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah.
Steve McGarrett: One near death experience and you go all warm and cuddly on me?


"Hawaii Five-0: Nalowale (#1.5)" (2010)
Steve McGarrett: You don't think I'm a happy person?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know - heh. You know I'm sure you have your moments. You know like when Guns and Ammo puts out their holiday gift guide, or a Rambo retrospective comes on TV. But when the Governor calls us down to the ME's on a *Saturday*, I ask you: what is it that you could be so happy about?

Steve McGarrett: You could have told this on the phone.
M.E. Max Bergman: I don't trust phones.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Observing a suspect in a bar] Let me tell what I would like to do. If that was my daughter. I would bust every single one of his fingers - one-at-a-time.
Danny 'Danno' Williams, Steve McGarrett: [They wath him put a pill in a woman's drink] OH!
Danny 'Danno' Williams: God. Thank you for the excuse.

Steve McGarrett: How'd you get her to talk?
Kono Kalakaua: Told her the dog would be put down once she went down to lock up. Promised I'd find it a home *if* she cooperated.
[Steve and Chin Ho stare at her]
Kono Kalakaua: What? It's not like it's the dog's fault.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know. It's amazing. Now she-she catches bad guys for you, and she... sleeps with you. Does she cook too?
Steve McGarrett: Yes, she does. Great cook.

Russell Ellison: We're running out of options. We gotta move in!
Steve McGarrett: "We" don't have to do anything. *You* need to pull your men out so my partner and I can clean up *your* mess... Move out now. I'm not gonna tell you again!
Russell Ellison: [to his men] Come on.

Russell Ellison: All right. Listen, I'm man enough to know when I'm wrong. Thank you. You both have uh, great instincts.
[Russell hands Danny a card]
Russell Ellison: And uh, if you ever consider coming down to the private sector, you should give me call. Men with your skillsets deserve to be compensated.
Steve McGarrett: I thank you very much. I totally agree.
[Steve walks behind Russell and puts him in handcuffs]
Russell Ellison: Whoa! What are you doing?
Steve McGarrett: I'm getting compensation. You obstructed a criminal investiation. That is an arrestable offense.

Governor Pat Jameson: You saved a girl's life today.
Steve McGarrett: Just doing the job you hired me for.
Governor Pat Jameson: Maybe so. But I made a promise to a friend. You let me keep it. Thank you.

Steve McGarrett: Zephyr Lounge. It's a nightclub. Just sent us a link to remotely access their closed-circuit feeds.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's really good. It's impressive. Did you learn that in SEAL school?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, it's called using the internet. People have been doing it since the early 90s. You might have heard.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I wouldn't know. I was still playing Ms. Pac-Man.
Steve McGarrett: Oh, yeah?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah.
Steve McGarrett: Ever make it to double pretzel level?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Triple banana, bitch.
Steve McGarrett: You're a liar.

Steve McGarrett: Take a look at Casanova over there at 6:00.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's our boy. Let me tell you what I'd like to do. If that was my daughter, I would bust every single one of his fingers one at a time.
[Jordan drops a roofie pill into the girl's drink]
Steve McGarrett, Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh!
Danny 'Danno' Williams: God, thank you for the excuse.

Russell Ellison: I'm man enough to know when I'm wrong. Thank you. You both have, uh, great instincts. And if you ever consider coming down to the private sector, you should give me a call. Men with your skill sets deserve to be compensated.
Steve McGarrett: Well, thank you very much. I totally agree.
[McGarrett starts cuffing Ellison]
Russell Ellison: Whoa. What are you doing?
Steve McGarrett: I'm getting compensation. You obstructed a criminal investigation. That is an arrestable offense.
Russell Ellison: But you and I both know the charges will never stick.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, maybe not. But it's gonna take your firm at least twenty-four hours to get a lawyer here from Los Angeles. I'm gonna make sure that you spend that time in jail. Book him, Danno.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know, I got to be honest. Actually, I didn't mind that one.
Steve McGarrett: Really?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah.
[pushing Ellison forward with his cane]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Move.


"Hawaii Five-0: Kai e' e (#1.15)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Are you sure this is a good idea?
Steve McGarrett: He looked after my sister.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, I know. And she ran away.
Kamekona: Hey, that's bulei, bro. She tricked me. Playing on my emotional vulnerabilities.

Steve McGarrett: Just do what they say, Mamo, okay? There's a tsunami coming. It's not safe to be on the beach.
Mamo Kahike: Steve, I was here in '60, '64 and '75. I've seen 'em all. There's no tsunami today.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, I hear you, but you gotta get out of there just in case, all right?
Mamo Kahike: Okay, brah, but I'm telling you. Someone's blowing smoke up somebody's o'hole.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: You cannot create a tsunami.
Steve McGarrett: That's right... unless you can!

Catherine Rollins: [Answering her cellphone] What do you need?
Steve McGarrett: Why can't I just be calling to say "hello?"
Catherine Rollins: Theorhetically it's possible, sure. Butt you never have before and it's an odd time to start.
Steve McGarrett: That's a fair point.

Chin Ho Kelly: We've got a problem.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What is that?
Chin Ho Kelly: The wave's just picked up speed. It's coming in faster than they thought.
Steve McGarrett: How much faster?
Chin Ho Kelly: It's coming in right now!

Danny 'Danno' Williams: We go bust these guys, HPD does an inventory on that money. They are gonna see that $10 million is missing.
Kono Kalakaua: It doesn't ncessarily trace back to us.
Steve McGarrett: We asked the governor to borrow $10 million, and she turned us down. As soon as the HPD tells her how much exactly is missing, she'll put it all together. But what's the alternative.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: We could let them go. Get a clean slate... But I'd never look at my daughter's face again... Let's go.

Commander Sam Hale: Coast Guard tracked that drug deal for 6 months. It was supposed to be our take down. But then HPD swooped in and took the credit. Now I'm being pushed out before my 20. No pension. No benefits. My country owes me.
Steve McGarrett: Hey, let's clear things right now. You swore to defend, and support this country no matter the cost. She doesn't owe you anything.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: It's uh, gonna be your last chance to say it. Come on.
Steve McGarrett: ...Book 'em, Danno.

Steve McGarrett: She wanted to thank us. Actually to - to uh, congratulate us on another job well done.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm - I'm sorry. What?
Chin Ho Kelly: Allright, what about the money?
Steve McGarrett: 28 million. It's all present and accounted for.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Hmmm.
Kono Kalakaua: Whoa. I don't understand.
Steve McGarrett: The money's all there.

Steve McGarrett: I need to know who's sending these e-mails.
Tanya: How am I supposed to know that?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You're a hacker.
[Danny hands Tanya her laptop]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Hack.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [about a dead suspect] You couldn't have walked him down the steps?
Steve McGarrett: What's in his hand, Danny? He drew his gun on me. Okay?


"Hawaii Five-O: The Burning Ice (#4.9)" (1971)
Det. Steve McGarrett: Tell me, doctor... Do you know of anyone who had a reason to kill your wife?
Dr. Alexander Southmore: I don't understand, Mr. McGarrett. She was robbed... Isn't it obvious why she was killed?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well... The obvious always bothers me, doctor.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Looking at tire tracks] Okay, get me photographs and plaster casts... Maybe we'll get lucky.

David Harper: [Harper is arrested for killing Mrs. Southmore] I don't need a lawyer.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'll tell you something, Mr. Harper... I've been a cop a long time, and I've never seen a man who needed a lawyer more.

Resident: [to McGarrett after David Harper has died] He's dead, apparently from a brain hemorrhage... But that's academic.
Det. Steve McGarrett: What do you mean, "That's academic"?
Resident: He' d have died anyway... In a matter of weeks.
Det. Steve McGarrett: What makes you say that?
Resident: David Harper was a patient here a few months ago... He insisted on being released when he was told there was nothing that could be done for him... He had leukemia.

Dr. Alexander Southmore: Mr. McGarrett, I detect a reluctance on your part to accept his confession... Why is that?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, doctor... Have you ever ran all the tests you can run on a patient, gotten all the facts, and still feel the diagnosis is wrong somehow?... That there's something missing?
Dr. Alexander Southmore: Yes, that happens.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That answers your question, doesn't it?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Chin brings McGarrett some Japanese food] I thought your uncle was Chinese?
Chin Ho: Well, he is... But his joint is in a Japanese neighborhood, so he's passing.

Chin Ho: Steve, Lieutenant Rice wants to know if you want him to go on looking for the gun.
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Realizing that Southmore killed his wife] no... NO!... Tell him I just found it!

Danny Williams: [Dan is at the hospital, researching information on Dr. Southmore] A couple of months ago, Southmore went through the files looking for male patients with terminal illnesses.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's good enough, Danno... Come on in.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [as Southmore is apprehended] Book him!

Doc Bergman: [Giving McGarrett a rundown on the shots that killed Mrs. Southmore] There were two shots fired... One in the chest, and one through the left temple. Powder burns indicate the second shot was fired with the gun right against the head.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Sort of a coup de grace, huh?
Doc Bergman: Right.


"Hawaii Five-0: Powa Maka Moana (#1.17)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny yelling at Steve after Steve uses a grenade to explode open a locked door inside Big Lono's pawn shop] Come on! What is the matter with you? You need help! I will pay for it!
[Steve stares at him silently before walking away and back to the shop door]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny looks up to sky] Why?
Steve McGarrett: [to Big Lono in shop after grenade exploded] Let me see your hands. What did I tell you? All right, you see how that worked?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny re-enters the shop in a cloud of explosive dust] This could have been avoided.

Sergeant Duke Lukela: How did you know she was in on it?
Steve McGarrett: The guy I talked to. He called Susan by her name, and he said he saw her picture in the newspaper.
[Steve takes out the newspaper article and unfolds it]
Steve McGarrett: Except her name was never listed in the newspaper. For Susan's safety, we asked them not to publish it.

Steve McGarrett: Would you like to steer?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Huh?
Steve McGarrett: [Danny stops pushing] Whoa. Whoa.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Do I want to steer? No. I don't want to steer. I want to continue to push this 3 ton piece of metal up a hill in 95 degree weather. That's what I want to do. No, I don't want to steer. Yes, I want to steer. Thank you!... 9 miles
[Danny laughs]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: 9 miles. 9 miles. You've been working on your dad's old wreck for 6 months and you get 9 miles out of it. I'm very impressed.
Steve McGarrett: This is a classic car. And classic cars are tempermental, okay?

Danny 'Danno' Williams: So-so that means either Max is dead wrong or we are dealing with a Tongun zombie pirate.
Steve McGarrett: It's possible.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, it's not possible. I was kidding.
Steve McGarrett: No, listen, what I'm saying is if our Tongun pirate was killed a full day earlier, he could've been dumped on the boat.

Big Lono: [McGarrett's counting to 5 to the store owner] You can't come in here without a warrant!
Steve McGarrett: Five.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Time's up.
Steve McGarrett: You gonna open the door?
Big Lono: Not a chance?
Steve McGarrett: [to Danny] I'll be back.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Steve] "I'll be back?" - that...
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Big Lono] He's done a lot better, trust me.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Steve] That's all you can come up with is, "I'll be back? "
Steve McGarrett: I got somethin. I got somethin' good.
[Steve heads to the door]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Steve walking out the door] What are you gonna do? Drive the car through the, uh... Hey, I got the keys.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Big Lono] You see what you did? I don't know what he's gonna do, but if I were you, I'd run. Out the back, side, roof... Go!
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Steve re-enters] A grenade.
[to Big Lono]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: He has a grenade.
[to Steve]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Why do you have a grenade?
[to Big Lono]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: He's got a grenade. You see this? You see this? He's not bluffing. He will pull the pin and blow everybody up. Will you trust me? Please?

Big Lono: [Watches Steve prepare grenade for action] That thing's not even real.
Steve McGarrett: All right. Are you gonna open the door?
Big Lono: Not a chance.
Steve McGarrett: Okay.
[Steve unwraps the grenade]
Steve McGarrett: You sure?
[Big Lono just stares at him]
Steve McGarrett: Okay.
[Steve places the grenade on the door handle]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Steve indicates to Danno to run for cover] You're not blu- You're bluffing... You're not -
[Danno starts running out]
Steve McGarrett: Go! Go!
[Steve pulls the pin and runs out]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That is so sick!

Steve McGarrett: As soon as we know something significant, you will be the first to know. You have my word.
Morris Brown: So what you're really saying is that you - you don't know anything.

Kono Kalakaua: What are the real chances of getting these kids back alive?
Steve McGarrett: ...When my father was kidnapped, I knew from prior experience that no matter what I did that day, the results would not be good, okay? In these situations they rarely are... We're gonna change that. We're gonna get these kids back. We're gonna get them back alive!

Kono Kalakaua: [Kidnappers want Susan to drop off the money] You're not seriously considering using Susan, are you?
Steve McGarrett: She's the only one who can do this job.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny is pushing Steve's dead car uphill while Steve is steering it] All right, right here.
Steve McGarrett: No, no, no. Shoulder's too thin. Another 20 feet and we're good.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Another 20 feet, I'm gonna be in traction.
Steve McGarrett: You wanna steer?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Huh?
[Danny stops pushing]
Steve McGarrett: [the car stàrts rolling backward] Whoa, whoa.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Do I wanna steer? No. I don't wanna steer. I wanna continue to push this 3-ton hunk of metal up a hill in 95 degree weather. That's what I want to do! No. I don't want to steer. Yes, I'll steer. Thank you.
[Danny walks to driver's door to steering wheel as Steve goes to back of car to push]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Nine miles. Ha, ha. Nine miles. Nine miles. You been working on your dad's old wreck for six months, and you get nine miles out of it. I'm very impressed.
Steve McGarrett: This is a classic car, and classic cars are temperamental, okay?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Temperamental?
Steve McGarrett: Just like you.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, no, no. That is an excuse. That is an excuse for poor automobile maintenance, my friend. Okay? This is a car. It is not temperamental. It is a product. When it stops working, you get another one! You understand?
Steve McGarrett: What happened to you, man? I mean, where's your sentimental side? There's nothing in there.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I don't have a sentimental side, okay? And if I did, it would be reserved for human beings, not dopey machines.
Steve McGarrett: Classic machines.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, I know. One person's classic is another person's scrap metal.
Steve McGarrett: Well, thank you very much, Socrates.


"Hawaii Five-O: Highest Castle, Deepest Grave (#4.1)" (1971)
Professor: We call them John & Mary, babes in the woods compared to the others... They have only been dead nine or ten years. The curious fact, each one shows osteal damage. Bone splintering, caused by, foreign small object!
Det. Steve McGarrett: Bullet...?
Professor: That's your department Steve. We call it, death, caused by Induced Traumatic Insult.
Det. Steve McGarrett: We call it Murder!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve suspects a murder may have taken place] Danno, I want missing persons checked for two people who vanished about 10 years ago... A man and a woman.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Mondrago] When people won't talk to me, I have them subpoenaed before a grand jury.
Mondrago: The meeting starts well... I like a man who stands up to me.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Dan is giving Steve a run down on Mondrago, his wife, and Mr. Parker] What are you thinking?... Triangle?

Mondrago: Go fight other windmills, McGarrett... This one might break your arm.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Oh... That's been tried.

Danny Williams: What have you got, Steve?
Det. Steve McGarrett: One woman too many, Danno.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve gets a phone call from the Big Island concerning Duncan] Our friend, Duncan, the artist... Found drunk in Hilo with $50,000 in his pocket.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Danny walks in] It's quarter to five in the morning, Danno.
Danny Williams: I know.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I just got back from the big island... What's your excuse?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Mondrago] It wasn't your wife's medical file you were trying to hide... It was your daughter's psychiatric file wasn't it?

Det. Steve McGarrett: Pending a hearing, you're free to go Mr. Mondrago. Your only crime was one of concealment... I have a feeling the courts will understand.


"Hawaii Five-0: Alaheo Pau'ole (#2.12)" (2011)
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: I know you took my passport.
Steve McGarrett: [handing said passport back] What are you doing in Japan?
[Joe doesn't answer]
Steve McGarrett: You know what, Joe? You might as well tell me. 'Cause I'm not gonna give up. I'm not gonna stop asking.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: I was hoping you wouldn't say that.

Lieutenant Commander Joe White: I am telling you, son. I have run the name Shelburne through all my contacts: NSA, Interpol, FBI, CIA, DOD - every acronym you can think of. I have come up with exactly zero. Shelburne is a ghost.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, well this ghost has Wo Fat spooked, okay? If we want to catch that son-of-a-bitch, finding Shelburne is the way to do it.

Steve McGarrett: [Knocking on Danny's door] Come on. We're gonna be late for the tux fitting. Let's go. Chin's wedding this Saturday, remember?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No. No. Hey, we're busy. Come back later. Please. Thanks.
Steve McGarrett: I'm sorry. You're busy? I can't come back later, Daniel. I'm the best man. I gotta make sure the groomsmen are in their monkeysuits. Let's go! Open the door. Come on.
Danny 'Danno' Williams, Lori Weston: [the door opens revealing Danny and Lori handcuffed together] Hey.

Steve McGarrett: And the uh... the handcuffs?
Lori Weston: Oh uh, Danny was showing me the uh... the uh, Jersey Slip.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Jersey slip.
Steve McGarrett: Jersey slip?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: The hood rat cuff slip. Yeah. All the kids are doing it back East. So thought I'd show her.
Lori Weston: Yeah, and um, we, ahem, lost the keys somewhere. I think in the couch.
Steve McGarrett: The couch?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, so maybe you wanna set up a search grid, call a K-9 unit.

Steve McGarrett: Now hold on. Hold on a second. Isn't this a beach wedding, Chin? What's wrong with boardies and - and slippers?
Chin Ho Kelly: Mn-hm. Yeah. What's wrong with them, is that they do not match the bridesmaid's dresses.
Steve McGarrett: Oh.
Chin Ho Kelly: And for the record, Danny: neither do handcuffs.
Kamekona: I was gonna ask about those.
Steve McGarrett: Show 'em the Jersey slip, Danno.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: I offered to shoot them off.
Kamekona: No key? No problem, brah.
[He takes neck chain off his neck]
Kamekona: Bring, bring, bring.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny extends his cuffed wrist to Kamekona, who proceeds to release the lock with a key on his neck chain] Wow!
[Everyone smiles]
Kamekona: It's an old island trick.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Impressive. Yeah.

Steve McGarrett: Do you know who Shelburne is, Joe?
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: Ask me another question.
Steve McGarrett: Do you or do you not know who Shelburne is?
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: I'm not gonna answer that... When your father sent you away, I promised to look after you, and that's a promise I intend to keep.
Steve McGarrett: Oh yeah? By lying to me?
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: No. By containing this Shelburne thing before you get caught up in it.
Steve McGarrett: Just be careful.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: Always am.

Capt. Vincent Fryer: [Captain Fryer and his team storm through the door of Dennis Archer's hotel and discover the Five-O team] McGarrett.
Steve McGarrett: Captain Fryer. What're you doing here?
Capt. Vincent Fryer: You tell me, man.
Steve McGarrett: We're working a case.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: We're working a case too.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You're working a case?
Capt. Vincent Fryer: Yeah.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You see, this whole time, I'd think that the promotion to chief of detectives is a desk-jockey job.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: No, the chief of D should be out catching cases. Okay? I'm old school like that.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, good. Well this is our catch, and it's our case. You got it?
Capt. Vincent Fryer: [Notices the photo in Steve's hand] This is our Jane Doe.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about? Huh?
Capt. Vincent Fryer: This is mine. I found her body in the trunk of a car rented by a guy named, uh, Dennis Archer. I traced the card he used to rent the car to this room.
Steve McGarrett: And here we are.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: Here you are, doing what exactly?
Kono Kalakaua: We're working the Dennis Archer case.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: The Dennis Archer case?
Steve McGarrett: Okay, we found his body. He was shot and left for dead in a bunker outside of Pearl City.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: He's at the hospital in a coma right now.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: He's in a coma?
Steve McGarrett: Yes. Coma.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: He's in a coma. Huh. Last I checked, homicide takes precedence over attempted homicide.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay. Hold on. Alright. Look, you got a case. We got a case.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: He's right. Let's let bygones be bygones. Let's pool our resources and work this case together.

Capt. Vincent Fryer: Let's let bygones be bygones. Let's pool our resources and work this case together.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, fine.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: All right, good. All right, this is nice. Maybe you guys wanna hug it out a little bit, fist bump, something like that...
Capt. Vincent Fryer: Um. No. Let's just work the case, okay?

Steve McGarrett: What's the situation, Kono?
Kono Kalakaua: Couple of kids broke into one of the bunkers to explore a lava tube. And they found a body.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What happened to skateboarding and stickball?
Kono Kalakaua: [Kono gets pulled away by another officer]
[to the Five-0 team]
Kono Kalakaua: Go ahead. Max is inside.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [They enter the bunker] There's the hole.
Chin Ho Kelly: This whole valley has hundreds of these unexplored lava tubes.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm thinking there's a reason they're unexplored.
Dr. Max Bergman: [Max pops up wearing a headlamp] Actually...
[Startles Steve, who shines his handheld flashlight onto Max]
Dr. Max Bergman: This system has been explored, just not mapped by the Underground Paradise Spelunking Club, of which I am a founding member and treasurer.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh. Well, thank you, Captain Caveman.
Chin Ho Kelly: That looks deep.
Dr. Max Bergman: I estimate the floor to be at a depth of 30 meters.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Thirty meters. Well, this definitely looks like a job for a Navy SEAL.
[Danny shines the flashlight on Steve's face as Steve is unpacking his climbing gear that he brought in a duffel bag]
Dr. Max Bergman: Well, I took the liberty of anchoring our rappel line.
Steve McGarrett: You wanna come down there with me?
Dr. Max Bergman: Oh, absolutely. Let's spelunk.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay. First thing we need to do is ID your Jane Doe, find out what her connection was to Dennis Archer.
Steve McGarrett: I know where to start. She worked at the Paradise Cove Luau.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: Really? How do you know that?
Steve McGarrett: How do I know? Chief of detectives, look at the photo of your Jane Doe.
[Steve takes photo out of Fryer's hand]
Steve McGarrett: She's wearing their uniform. You see? I know that cuz I went there a couple of weeks ago for umbrella drinks with Joe. He likes umbrella drinks.
[Danny and Kono smile at each other]
Capt. Vincent Fryer: Good times.
Steve McGarrett: Put your grass skirt on, *partner*. We got work to do.


"Hawaii Five-0: Hana 'a'a Makehewa (#1.12)" (2010)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Can I ask you a question? Why are you always driving my car?
Steve McGarrett: I like to drive.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, Rain Man liked to drive. You have control issues.

Chin Ho Kelly: [Chin Ho has a bomb strapped to him] You need to be in suits.
Steve McGarrett: You're not wearing one, neither are we.

Steve McGarrett: [to his cellphone] Steve McGarrett here. Give me the governor. I don't care what she's doing. Pull her out of the meeting. Tell her the man who killed my father is still alive.

Steve McGarrett: How is Victor Hesse even alive? I mean I put two shots straight through the guy's chest.
Chin Ho Kelly: The guy's a cockroach. It's what they do. They come back from the dead. Next time you step on him, don't take your foot off.

Steve McGarrett: We found out Victor Hesse is still alive.
Sang Min: You're not a very good shot, are you?

Victor Hesse: Do you realize the last time we spoke, I killed your father.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, and I killed your brother. Score's been settled.
Victor Hesse: Would be if I believed in the Law of Retaliation. Eye-for-an-eye just not my style, Steve.

Steve McGarrett: I know what you're going to say, all right? We're cops. We don't steal. There's gotta be another way. There is no other way to do this, Danny. Look around! Okay? And by the way, I'm not a cop. I'm a SEAL!

Victor Hesse: This was never about the money, Steve. This is about honor. It's about unfinished business. This is about looking into your eyes when I kill a man who serves under you. A man that you are responsible for.
Steve McGarrett: You told me you weren't interested in getting even.
Victor Hesse: I lied!

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Can I ask you a question: why are you always driving *my* car?
Steve McGarrett: ...I like to drive.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, no, no. Rain Man likes to drive. You have control issues.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Whoa, whoa, whoa, alright? For me. I just wanna know. Are we really gonna go break into a police station and steal drug money?
Steve McGarrett: I know what you're gonna say. Alright? We're cops. We don't steal. There's gotta be another way to do this. There's not another way to do this, Danny. Look around! Okay? And, by the way, I'm not a cop. I'm a SEAL!
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay. Would you relax? Don't get me wrong. Okay? Superman, bring it down. Just a notch. Alright? Our boy's in trouble. We do what we gotta do. I understand that. I'm just trying to measure the level of insanity we're dealing with.
Steve McGarrett: [Intensely] High. High. Very high.


"Hawaii Five-O: F.O.B. Honolulu: Part II (#3.19)" (1971)
Jonathan Kay: [Commander Nicholson has the plates] The president is waiting for word right now... Where do we go from here?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'm gonna press them hard, all of them... They don't trust each other, none of them... And that can be our most effective weapon.

Nicole Fleming: [to McGarrett] I appreciate your concern... I really do.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Oh... it's nothing.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Tony Madrid] Be very careful, because Wo Fat does not like to leave loose ends walking around.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Misha] How is the weather this time of year in Siberia?

Nicole Fleming: [Nicole has the case with the plates] It's worth a million dollars to you!
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Grabs the case away from Nicole] It's worth murder one... Book her!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Trying to get Misha to help him] You can't win... But, you don't have to lose.

Misha the Bear: [to McGarrett at the airport] The plates?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Safely back in Washington.
Misha the Bear: Wo Fat?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Probably in Peking.
Misha the Bear: Then all is as it should be.

Danny: [Looking at Wo Fat's blood in the Chinese temple] He's probably hit bad.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, and that makes him even more dangerous.

Misha the Bear: [McGarrett sees Misha off at the airport] tell me, do you come down to the airport to say farewell to all visitors to Hawaii?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Only some, and all colonels in the KGB... I know, it's purely an honorary title.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Jonathan is angry at Steve for not recognizing that NIcholson was as traitor] Are you finished yet?
Jonathan Kay: NO... I AM NOT FINISHED!

Chin Ho Kelly: First rule of Spear Fishing: you kill what you eat, you eat what you kill.
Steve McGarrett: [Holding up his catch] Guess what's for lunch today.

Chin Ho Kelly: You know your dad took me fishing a couple of times. He and some of the vets would rent a boat for the day.
Steve McGarrett: Where? In Kalalua Bay?
Chin Ho Kelly: Yeah.
Steve McGarrett: Oh man! When I was a kid, I *always* wanted him to take me.
Chin Ho Kelly: Back when I was a rookie, very eager to please, took me 5 minutes to realize it was less about the fishing, and more about the drinking.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, that was my dad.

Kurt Miller: I am not saying anything without my counsel here. So book me if you have to.
[McGarrett turns his head to Danny]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Do not say it!... Thank you.
Steve McGarrett: We book you, it's gonna be for murder one.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: My first week out of the academy, we get a call, drive-by shooting. And an 8-year-old kid gets shot in the crossfire. And it is my job to go tell this kid's mother that she has lost her son. I remember that moment. It was brutal. I remember sitting there thinking, "Things have got to get easier," you know?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, but it doesn't... I was 16. My mom was late for dinner. Mom was never late. And, uh, the doorbell rang and from the minute I saw that cop's face, I knew right away.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: How'd it happen?
Steve McGarrett: It was a car accident, drunk driver. You know, my dad used to say he felt sorry for the cop who had to come and tell us. And I never understood what he meant by that, until the day came that I had to do it myself.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I guess the day you get used to it, is the day you hang it up, right?
[Steve and Danny both look pensive, draw deep breaths, sigh]
Steve McGarrett: Radio?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah

Steve McGarrett: Take the tie off. No one on a cruise ship wears a tie.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh yes they do. They do it all the time. So they can hang themselves when they get bored.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, well, put it in your pocket and you can kill yourself later.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Wedding and engagement rings. Matinsky took him off his victims. These are trophies of his kills.
Steve McGarrett: This guy is beyond disturbed, okay? I bet he even eats from the buffet line.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [During a high speed chase] All right. May 18, 1996.
Steve McGarrett: What is that?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: It's the last time I puked. All right? Don't make me break my streak!
Steve McGarrett: You will not puke in this car. You will *not* puke in this car! If you're gonna be sick in here, crack that window. This is a loaner.

Nancy Harris: I don't know that I can do this.
Steve McGarrett: I don't think you can afford not to. You accused your daughter-in-law of some pretty terrible things. She has every reason to hate you right now. But - the truth is she needs you. You both loved him, and despite everything, you're family. That should stand for something.
Nancy Harris: Do you really think she'll forgive me?
Steve McGarrett: You'll never know unless you try.

Steve McGarrett: Okay, uh, why - why would somebody steal my mother's accident report?
Chin Ho Kelly: Because according to this, it wasn't an accident report.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about, Chin?
Chin Ho Kelly: It was a homicide.
Steve McGarrett: You're saying that my mother was murdered?
Chin Ho Kelly: I think that was what your father was investigating.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Matinsky] I do! Alright. I know what it's like to have somebody you love walk away from you.
Steve McGarrett: What are you doing?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What?
Steve McGarrett: What are you doing? The guy is clearly a psychopath. You're trying to make friends with him. You're trying to *connect*?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: He's standing right in front of us! He can hear you.
Steve McGarrett: I see he's standing right here, Danny. But you're a cop. You're not a therapist, you know?
[Steve lowers his gun and turns halfway to Danny]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Hey hey hey! I've been trained for this kind of thing, okay?
Steve McGarrett: What - what to bore people into submission?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Matinsky] Don't listen to him, okay. His idea of communication is - is he drops a witty one-liner and then shoots you in the face. Don't worry about it!
Steve McGarrett: [to Danny while watching Matinsky from the corner of his eye] You know what - I might shoot this guy just so he doesn't have to listen to you talk.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Why don't you do your thing? I'll do mine, alright?
[Steve shoots Matinsky who had lowered the knife he was holding close to the woman's throat since he got confused by their talk]


"Hawaii Five-0: Kuka'awale (#5.17)" (2015)
Steve McGarrett: Tell her you need another 24 hours to get the money.
Barry Burns: I already stalled her once. If I don't give her the money, she'll shoot me in the face!
Steve McGarrett: That's a risk we're willing to take.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [In an apartment on a stakeout] It smells in here. It's like, uh, loneliness... and despair.
Steve McGarrett: It's moth balls.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Draws his gun as a cat runs by out of nowhere] Whoa!
Steve McGarrett: Hey! Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you- what is the matter with you?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What's the matter with me? The thing jumped out of nowhere. I got scared. What do you want?
Steve McGarrett: What do I want you to do? Maybe react like a grown man. How 'bout that? It's a cat.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay. Lemme explain something to you that you do not know.
[Points at himself]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I don't like-
[Looks down, realizes he is pointing his own gun at his chest and holsters his weapon]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I don't like cats.

Steve McGarrett: Yeah, I love cats. Who doesn't love cats? They're awesome. They're like little adorable ninjas. They're smart. They're fast. And they're cute and cuddly at the same time.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Walks to the window that has a view of their female suspect] We got a situation here.
Steve McGarrett: [Follows Danny] What do we got?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Their female suspect is stripping down to her underwear. They start talking over each other] I mean this...? What do we do? I mean, I don't- What's the protocol here? Do we watch? Do we not watch?
Steve McGarrett: [In a very reasonable tone] That's what we're here for. We gotta watch.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: It's our job as far as I'm concerned...
Steve McGarrett: I mean, I don't- It's not like...
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [She pulls the curtains closed and they suddenly stop talking, sighing in disappointment] Lost visual.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I fell asleep. I miss anything?
[Steve leans over to their equipment and turns it up so they hear sounds of the two women making love]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Apparently not.
Steve McGarrett: They stopped for a water break about a half an hour ago.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's good. You gotta stay hydrated.
Steve McGarrett: Very important.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [They see the women's shadows through the curtains next door] See this... this is bad for us men in general. This is what gives us a bad name. Twenty, thirty minutes. That includes a drink. Takes us three hours.
Steve McGarrett: Impossible.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: They make us look terrible.
Steve McGarrett: It's impossible.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: We can't do this.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I have seen you personally put yourself in every conceivable life-threatening situation without batting an eye. Like it's nothing. But, when it comes to talking about your feelings, forget about it. You'd rather choose cyanide.
[Steve looks away]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Huh? Forget it. Wake me up if they stop, or do something interesting... open up that curtain.
Steve McGarrett: [after a long pause] You wanna know why I don't play guitar anymore?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yes. I would like to know why you don't play guitar anymore.
Steve McGarrett: [Another pause] Tenth grade talent show. I signed up to perform. I practiced this song every day for months and months, and the day finally came around. I was standing in the wings. My guitar was in tune. They called me my name. I walked out on stage... and turned around and looked at all those people... And I couldn't do it... I couldn't do it, so I walked off and I never played the guitar again.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's it?
Steve McGarrett: That's it.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Tenth grade. You had stage fright. So, you never played the guitar again?
Steve McGarrett: I didn't have stage fright. It was bigger than that. I'm tellin' you, man, it was a, uh... I don't know. I guess it was an existential crisis. I just, in that moment, I couldn't handle... the, the vulnerability that I was experiencing. I couldn't handle how *exposed*... I felt. I felt like I couldn't breathe, and I thought it was gonna kill me. Look, man. I was raised differently than you, okay? I wasn't raised in a house with a supportive family, encouraging me to share my feelings. And, in your case, every feeling. The McGarrett men are a different breed. They- To them, showing emotions is showing weakness. You know? I mean, it's stupid, but it's just the way it is.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I understand that. I just figured after everything we've been through... you know... your father, my brother. Everything. I figured maybe I was, you know... somebody that you could open up to, is all.
Steve McGarrett: I just did.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: You called a drug dealer to find Mr. Pickles?
Steve McGarrett: And why did I have to do that, Danny?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, no, no. Don't do this, okay? It's not my fault. It's your fault.
Steve McGarrett: How is this *my* fault, Mr. Pickles got out? You're the reason. You left the window open.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Well, I wouldn't have had to leave the window open if you hadn't decided it was a good idea to make a microwave omelet!
Steve McGarrett: You know what? This whole passive aggressive thing? I'm done. I'm tired. It's tiring.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Alright, let's do *aggressive* aggressive! You want that?

Steve McGarrett: I gotta go, guys. I got somethin' with Danny I gotta take care of.
Lou Grover: You late for an argument? Oh, the marriage counselor! How's that goin'?
Kono Kalakaua: Yeah, you rekindling your romance?

Steve McGarrett: [Danny just gave him a guitar] Hey, man, thank you.
[as Danny walks around his car to the passenger side]
Steve McGarrett: Oh, listen, by the way.
[Steve tosses the keys to Danny]
Steve McGarrett: Why don't you drive?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I drive. Wow. Definitely a break through, Steven.
Steve McGarrett: Don't get too excited, alright. I'm still controlling the radio.
[They get in, and Steve tunes the radio to classic rock. The Boys Are Back in Town starts playing as they drive away]

Danny: Where to?
Det. Steve McGarrett: According to the governor... To head off World War III.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Sarpa] I just wanna get one thing straight, Mr. Sarpa... Are you more interested in finding Mr. Rostov's violin, or on getting as much political mileage as you can out of this so-called incident?

Det. Steve McGarrett: Mr. Gifford's car has been found.
Dmitri Rostov: And the Guarnerius?
Det. Steve McGarrett: It's gone.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Sarpa] If anyone contacts you about the violin, I wanna know about it immediately.
Josef Sarpa: I'll have to think about this.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, you think about it... And while you're at it, think about this... These men have killed once, they'll kill again.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Sarpa] If you arrange to meet them alone, you could end up in a basket.

Kono: Steve, where you going?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'll let you know after I've been there... No sense all of us getting scalped.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Rostov] I want Mazzini's killers so badly that I'm willing to put my head on the chopping block.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Enlisting Rostov's help] If there's any heat, any heat at all... I give you my word, I'll take it.

Dmitri Rostov: [Rostov has recovered his violin] Mr. McGarrett... I have decided to play the concert tomorrow night... And I would like to dedicate it to Mr. Mazzini.
Det. Steve McGarrett: My turn... Thank You.
[Last lines]

Danny: Associated Press is on the phone... There's been a leak. News story out of Washington quoting an anonymous Soviet Embassy source... Says the violin was stolen by American facists as an act of political vengeance against the Soviet Union.

"Hawaii Five-O: Strangers in Our Own Land (#1.2)" (1968)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [about Tommy Kapali] One smart boy to make a bomb like that.
Kono: Smart?... I call that one dumb Hawaiian.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to the governor about Nathan Manu] Doesn't it seem strange that nobody was at at the airport to meet him?... Nobody from his staff, not even his wife?

Chin Ho: You looking for a graft angle?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Right now, I'm looking for anything.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking about Tommy Kapali] You're pretty uptight about this, aren't you?
David Milner: Yeah well, I've never seen a race of people die out anywhere when they had good jobs and money in the bank.

Chin Ho: I just came from the medical examiner... The cause of Tommy's death was fractures of the first and second vertebrae, massive trauma...
Det. Steve McGarrett: Wait a minute, wait a minute... Plain language, Chin.
Chin Ho: Broken neck.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking about medical examiner] Doctor drives me up the wall.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [talking about the case against Tommy] No, no... It's all too pat... It's all too pat... All the pieces fit together... You could put a ribbon around this one and mail it in.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Benny about Nathan Manu] Whoever pulled the pin on him killed a walking dead man.

May: [Steve and Kono have been working all night] Does it ever occur to you, Mr. McGarrett, that very few people work on Sunday?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Unless you're a cop...
May: Or a cops secretary.

Steve McGarrett: You mean this?
Kamekona: You get what you paid for, brah. This stuff don't grow on trees.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know, I just had a thought.
Steve McGarrett: Don't hurt yourself.

Steve McGarrett: What is with you today? Your phone is blowing up.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: It's Rachel, all right? The lawyers have decided that since we "activate" each other, that email would be a better form of communication- except I *hate* email. I'm never at a computer. And I can't type on this thing because I have goofy thumbs.

Rachel: The two of you can do what you like. I'm picking up Grace from school and checking into a hotel.
Steve McGarrett: Uh, you can't do that.
Rachel: I'm not your suspect
Steve McGarrett: I understand that. But we all just need to act normal. Uh, if you start breaking routines, then they get suspicious.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh Rachel, I got an idea. Why don't you take Gracie over to Laura's for a sleepover? 'Cause she only be asking for, I don't know, 3 months.
Rachel: And I'm supposed to just stay here?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm not thrilled about the situation either. This? No.

Steve McGarrett: She's cool, man. She's cool. I don't know how you got her.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: How did I get her? Hey. I am a good catch.
Steve McGarrett: No, really. How did you get her?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny sighs] Seriously? Uh, she hit me.

Steve McGarrett: [as Danny is searching the suspect's house] So what happened to you two anyway?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Happened to you two who?
Steve McGarrett: You and Rachel.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny grabs a bag of chips and starts crunching the chips] Breaking up. I can't hear you.

Steve McGarrett: You know, um, you don't have to worry. Danny's a great cop. He - he knows what he's doing.
Rachel: I know. I used to tell myself that everyday when he went to work.
Steve McGarrett: Did it help?
Rachel: Not really.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: What's the matter with you, huh? We got a situation. I've been calling you like you owe me money.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about? I didn't hear my phone.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I called like five, six times.
Steve McGarrett: I believe you. I didn't hear my phone. I left it right over here. Where's my phone? Have you seen my phone?
[Kamekona grimaces, leans over and pulls said phone out from under his butt]
Kamekona: Oh, sorry.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You didn't feel that vibrating? Ever?
Kamekona: Oh, that's what it was.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: What are the odds, huh? He gets a bullet in the dome, goes through four hours of brain surgery and he survives, yet a hundred and fifty people die every year from falling coconuts.
[Steve gives him a questioning look]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's a fact. I read it online.
Steve McGarrett: Oh, so now you're not gonna let Grace go near coconut trees?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Not without a helmet, I'm not.

Ben Cunningham: But they're not gonna listen!
Det. Steve McGarrett: Make them!

Danny Williams: Cunningham bought us some time... Thirty six hours.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, that's better than nothing.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Cunningham after the shootout on the pier] You're a man of your word, aren't you?... You're really beautiful!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Melanasian consul] I can make this the biggest, dirtiest front page story in the international press!... Or you can cooperate!

Claire Cunningham: [after being rescued] It was all over the last shipment of guns, wasn't it?
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's right... I guess the guns are legally yours now.

Che Fong: Death by immersion, Steve.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is leaving] Mrs. Whiting, my job is to dig up the truth... Wherever it lies, wherever it's buried.

Fred Whiting: [Holding cufflink] McGarrett, this little piece of gold... Is it gonna change anything?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [about Detrich] I'm beginning to get worried, Danno... Why would he be making copies of the most valuable gemstone in the island?
Danny: Maybe he liked to practice.

Governor: [Steve wants the Governor to delay Kamehameha Day festivities] What you're asking me to do is to postpone the presentation solely on a personal apprehension?
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Shakes his head no] Cop instinct,,,It's more a sharp feeling in the gut, Sir.

Pawnshop Owner: [Talking about the necklace that Thurman brought to his shop] That stuff smelled hot to me.

Det. Steve McGarrett: We have your record, Miss Carver... Or is it Miss Kinsgton?... A few light fingered moments... Kansas, Illinois, Several years ago.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: No. How's the date going, buddy?
Steve McGarrett: Chin.
Chin Ho Kelly: You didn't answer Danny's question.
Steve McGarrett: I will take that as no sign of Porter.

Steve McGarrett: Yeah. Your whining.
Officer Lori Weston: How long have you two been married?

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [During a gun fight] Whoa. Whoa. Please can we... try... not... to kill everybody in the compound? One of these hippies might know where Jen is. All right?

Det. Steve McGarrett: No, no... So far as we're concerned, Kellum is right back where he started from.
Freda Cowan: But I just told you what Ted saw.

Jonathan Kaye: No, we're not gonna touch Wo Fat.

Walter Carter: [Steve, Walter and Jonathan are discussing Vogler] The question is, can we trust him to do it?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, I'm sure of it.
Jonathan Kaye: How can you be that sure?
Det. Steve McGarrett: For two reasons... His daughter's life depends on it, and he's managed to fool our entire security system for 2 years... He can steal 2 hours from Wo Fat.

Danny Williams: [the crisis is over, and Danny and Steve are having a cup of coffee] What about Dr. Vogler?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, he got his daughter back, and he'll be transferred in a couple of months to an unclassified assignment... And he'll probably get a medal.
Danny Williams: What about clearing you, Steve?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Tomorrow, the governor's supposed to have a press conference and give the details of the frame-up... Then I'll be back... I guess as if nothing happened.

Eadie Jordan: Your problem.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Our problem.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve thinks Mike is using heroin] Eadie, talk some sense into Mike... Tell him to help us nail Partch... Because if you don't, one way or the other, you're gonna end up needing a new piano player.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve realizes that Eadie is the real junkie] I missed the whole point of the story.

Mike Martin: That has nothing to do with me.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Good... Because if you are back on. You're liable to catch yourself a bummer that you didn't figure on.

Che Fong: [Che is giving Steve his report] Every autopsy shows arsenic mixed in with the heroin.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Edie Hastings?
Professor David Stone: Wonderful girl. Beautiful child.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You knew she was on drugs?
Professor David Stone: I knew she was searching for who she was. The light. Joy. The vision of truth. The central experience.
Det. Steve McGarrett: By turning on and tuning out?
Professor David Stone: Out of the rat race? The sordid little games you people play and call life? Yes, Mr. McGarrett, dropping out.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Awaiting a report from Kono] Okay, Kono... What has your boiler room come up with.
Kono: Four alcoholics, three adulterers, and one ex-bookie.

Che Fong: [Che and Steve are figuring out how the cargo ring operates] I see what you're doing... They get their messages, and we've got our copy.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Right... You make voice prints of all those spotters... They'll be our fingerprints.
Che Fong: Very clever... And you're not even Chinese.

Grayson: What will happen to whoever killed my Joanna?
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's up to the courts.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Sullivan] You're under arrest.
Sullivan: Your noble act just destroyed all the evidence.

Sullivan: Rhetoric, Mr. McGarrett!
Det. Steve McGarrett: Don't bet on it!... From what I know of John Malcolm, He'd be glad to trade his life for yours.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danny] While I'm away, squeeze Ravasco... Sit on him. I want him kept so busy I'll have Nicole Wylie back here before he knows I'm gone.

Inspector Fong: [Warning McGarrett] Mr. McGarrett, exotic Singapore is often called the jewel of the Orient by you Americans... But it is also many other things. It is a city of sinister entanglements... The night shadows hide great dangers.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Thank you, Inspector.

Nicole Wylie: Have I changed that much?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, it's a long way from Honolulu to Singapore.
Nicole Wylie: And every mile shows, right?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Inspector Fong has a gun drawn on McGarrett] Why the gun?
Inspector Fong: I warned you, Mr. McGarrett, that our streets are paved with treachery.

Det. Steve McGarrett: What would you like for our four day anniversary?

Det. Steve McGarrett: You got it!... You got it!

"Hawaii Five-0: Kame'e (#2.3)" (2011)
Joe White: The island seemed like a - pretty good place to wind it down.
Steve McGarrett: The thing is, Joe, I mean you're not a - you're not a fun-in-the-sun hang loose aloha type.
Joe White: They let you stay.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, they did.

Dr. Max Bergman: Do you have any extenuating evidence that might suggest that this might not be a suicide?
Steve McGarrett: No.
Dr. Max Bergman: Okay, well, then I'm going to need a little bit more than that in order to reopen the case. Considering that my *boss*, the Senior Medical Examiner was the one who performed the autopsy. There is an unwritten rule that you don't mess with the boss's toe tags.

Joe White: Hawaii's not exactly the place for IEDs.
Steve McGarrett: It is if you want to keep your investment safe.
[Points to a marijuana field]

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Steve about Lori] Hey. Hey. Hey. She follows orders. She likes sports. I mean, if she was into blowing stuff up and romantic getaways at the DMZ, I'd say we are looking at a love connection.
Steve McGarrett: That's funny.
[Back on task without skipping a beat]
Steve McGarrett: Garcia's wife give you anything?

Steve McGarrett: Listen, we're up and running on this investigation, understand? By the time the Provost Marshall get saavy, more SEALS could be in danger, if not dead.

Steve McGarrett: What'd you say?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Operation: Strawberry Field. It's got a picture of you here. Your name, photo of you.
[Steve grabs the folder]
Steve McGarrett: That's classified.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh, I apologize.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: El Chameleon just unclassified it.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: So, what, you're not gonna tell me about Operation Strawberry Field?
Steve McGarrett: No.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No? No. Cause you'd have to kill me, if you told me.
Steve McGarrett: [Glances at Danny] Keep thàt up.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Ahem. I'm just curious, though. Is there an Operation Abbey Road? Are you the Walrus?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Joe turns around and glares at Danny] Time to shut up?
Joe White: Roger that.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay.
Joe White: [Addresses everyone before entering Situation Room door] You ready for The Magical Mystery Tour?

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Watching some SEALS in action] You did this stuff?
Steve McGarrett: I neither confirm nor deny.
Chin Ho Kelly: Glad you're on our team.
Officer Lori Weston: ...Me too.


"Hawaii Five-0: Lanakila (#1.4)" (2010)
Mary Ann McGarrett: [laugh] You know, the last time I saw you was at *mom's* funeral. I guess that's how we do family reunions. Cause I was thinking it could've been cool to have a picnic in between or something, you know?
Steve McGarrett: Picnic?
Mary Ann McGarrett: Yeah. Picnic. Something that, I don't know, normal families do.

Steve McGarrett: Billy, so help me God, you answer incorrectly one more time, I gonna put those scrubs on you myself and then drop you in general population. How long do you think you'll last there?
Billy Omana: [Scoffs] You can't do that.
Steve McGarrett: [Showing his badge] This here says I can.

Mary Ann McGarrett: I mean we were invisible to that man. I-I would have taken anything from him, even disappointment. Because it would've been something.
Steve McGarrett: Listen, Mare, I know this is really hard for you to accept, okay? But dad loved us. He just - didn't know how to show it, I guess.

Mary Ann McGarrett: A tie? Seriously?
[Steve and Mary laugh]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah. What is it with you people and ties?
Mary Ann McGarrett, Steve McGarrett: We're in Hawaii.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Wow. In stereo. That's great. Thanks.

Catherine Rollins: Yeah, look this could raise some flags.
Steve McGarrett: Classify it as an NSA request for a Black Ops Drop Box, okay? Come on, Cath. I need this.
Catherine Rollins: You know, you're like the good looking guy in high school who knows how cute he is and won't take no for an answer.

Chin Ho Kelly: You got her to use a Miltary Recon Satellite and then you made a date?
Steve McGarrett: I'm a multi-tasker.
Chin Ho Kelly: ...Impressive.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh yeah play basketball, it's not like we have a killer to catch or anything.
Steve McGarrett: Clocks tickin' he's our best lead.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay, alright, time out, time out. You've never played basketball have you?
Steve McGarrett: I've played once or twice.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, yeah I'm mean I could see that, it looked like I was watching Lebron maybe he's just this much better.
Steve McGarrett: You know what football was my sport okay.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah now you tell me.


"Hawaii Five-O: The Second Shot (#3.3)" (1970)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve wants chin to find the missing bullet] Chin, see if you can find that bullet.
Chin Ho: How come I always get stuck with these jobs?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Because you're so good at it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Anything at the airport?
Kono: So far, no trace anywhere... No one saw anything, no one heard anything... Looks very professional.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Maybe... Except pros don't get paid for missing.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [after being briefed by the Governor about Klaus] Why the VIP treatment?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is visiting Klaus in the hospital] The Doctor tells me you're a very lucky man.
Klaus Marburg: Am I?... I certainly don't feel that way right now.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, at least you're feeling lucky, huh?

Kono: [Looking at gear left behind by the assassin] That's some fancy job.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... You won't find that in any mail order catalog.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danny] When a pro sets up a hit, he works out all the details... That's why he survives... But this, no... This is amateur night.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve has just shot Klaus] Is he dead?
Dr. Gregorios Lemira: Yes... Perhaps a quarter of an inch higher, and he might have lived.
[Last lines]

Det. Steve McGarrett: I've posted a police guard outside your door.
Klaus Marburg: So you haven't caught the assassin yet?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, not yet.
Klaus Marburg: I am flattered... It seems that when it concerns Dr. Lemira, they send only the very, very best.


"Hawaii Five-O: Ten Thousand Diamonds and a Heart (#3.16)" (1971)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Dan] Check the streets, Danno, see who's buying talent... With Orwell on the loose, well, who knows.

Danny: [Surveying crime scene with two dead bodies] Where does Orwell fit in?... You think he did this?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, no... He's no executioner, he's a mastermind... And he never goes after anything small.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Kono] Well, the prison doctor confirms Orwell has heart trouble.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking about Orwell] Sheldon Orwell... You know, once, just to prove a point, he crossed the Atlantic in a 21 foot boat?... Expert on burglar alarms, chemistry, explosives, police techniques... And now he's out there somewhere planning a big one.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Kono has found out that a woman purchased cigars] Cigars for a Roxie Newton?... Either she's got a boyfriend, or women's liberation is working overtime.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Where's Orwell?
Willard Lennox: Dead... Back in the meat wagon.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Mcgarrett catches up with Orwell] This is getting to be a habit, Orwell.
Sheldon Orwell: Well, I was going to say I don't believe it... But on second thought, I still don't.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to his staff] So what do we got? Ashes and dust... Cigar ashes and marble dust.


"Hawaii Five-0: Pu'olo (#2.14)" (2012)
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, but you know who hired you. Listen to me, you lead us to them, we work out what was in the package and maybe figure out who else would've wanted it. Get it?
Lee Dolan: Yeah, but there's one problem with that. I only dealt with one guy.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah? Who was the guy?
[Lee indicates the dead guy behind him]
Steve McGarrett: That's the guy?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That is a problem.
[Danny's phone rings]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: This day keeps getting better and better.
[Danny answers his phone]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Hello Rachel.

Steve McGarrett: [Steve laughs at San Ming] I'm sorry. I know you want to do the whole dramatic stare down thing, but I can't take you seriously in that get up.

Steve McGarrett: We've uh, we've sprung Sang Min before to help with a case.
Lori Weston: Yeah? How'd that go?
Steve McGarrett: Well, he escaped custody and uh, he went on the lam for a few months. But we - we recaptured him.
Kono Kalakaua: Uh, technically, he surrendered himself.

Kono Kalakaua: [after Nicky Chang's men pat down Sang Min] Good job hiding the wire. Where'd you place it, boss?
Steve McGarrett: Well, put it this way. once we're done, he can keep it.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I don't know. Waiting - waiting is the hardest part.
Steve McGarrett: You know something, I heard that labor pains are the worst part, Danny.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Please keep in mind, I'm helping my ex-wife deliver another man's baby. So cut me some slack, please. Thank you.
Steve McGarrett: Good point. I'm sorry.

Adam Noshimuri: He should've told me.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: He wanted to, but he knew that would only put you in jeopardy as well. His fight would become your fight. So he had to make a choice. Tell you the truth - risk your life or tell you a lie - keep you safe. You ask me, he chose wisely.
Adam Noshimuri: No. I need to see him. He wouldn't tell me where he is. But you're going to.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: No, I can't. I made Hiro a promise. What's important right now is that you proceed as if your father is dead. No one can know he's alive. But quietly, we will make inroads to Wo Fat's organization until we find him - and kill him.
Steve McGarrett: We just need to know if you're in or out.

Steve McGarrett: Okay, all right, if it was an investigation into the Yakuza, then why does Wo Fat care so much about Shelburne.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: Because Shelburne killed his father.
Steve McGarrett: And by Shelburne, you mean my father.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: No, it was me. I killed him.

Lieutenant Commander Joe White: When your father died, there was nothing you wouldn't have done to find the man who killed him. It's the same with Wo Fat. He's driven by revenge. Nothing's going to stop him from coming after me.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, fine. We'll find him first and take him down, Joe. That's what we do.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: One day we will. We will. But right now, as long as I'm here, you and everyone you care about is in danger.


"Hawaii Five-0: He Kane Hewa' Ole (#1.14)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You bought it online?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah. I bought - why?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What are you a schmuck? What's the matter with you? You don't order anything off the internet.
Steve McGarrett: Danny, it's the 21st century.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Says the guy with no master cylinder.
Steve McGarrett: All right, you got a point.

Steve McGarrett: Hey Danny, it's a TV cop fantasy. Why you gotta ruin it with statistics?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: All right, fine. It's a TV cop fantasy. In my TV cop fantasy, I'm Erik Estrada. You're the other guy.
Steve McGarrett: I don't think so, baby.

Steve McGarrett: Okay, what about our John Doe #2?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You mean Jack?
Steve McGarrett: You got an id?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No Ja - his head was in a box. Jack.
Chin Ho Kelly: That ain't right, bro.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Too soon?
Steve McGarrett: Little bit.

Chin Ho Kelly: He's travelling with a female companion by the name of Erin Barret. But I can't find any information on her.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, you won't. It's an alias!
Steve McGarrett: How'd you get so smart?

Steve McGarrett: He'd also be an accomplice to murder. But Han Chi is dead now because of you. And you know what else? A little boy lost his father today because you wanted to take the easy way out. I really really hope you spend the rest of your life in a jail cell thinking about that.

Steve McGarrett: Hey Danny.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah?
Steve McGarrett: You need to get this woman away from me.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Chin ran a background on Robert Rovin, okay? And it turns out that he's related to our head in the box. He's Henry Duncan's father-in-law.
Steve McGarrett: Nicole's father?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah. Since he never filed a missing persons report, that means one of two things. Either he knows what's going on, or we are on our way to make a death notification.

Steve McGarrett: What about Han Chi? Where does he fit into all of this?
Nicole Duncan: Who?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: "Who"? What are you, an owl? Han Chi, the guy you paid to bring the head of your ex-husband to your father.
Nicole Duncan: I don't know. Just some day laborer Spenser hired. He used to cut his lawn.
Steve McGarrett: You just figured you'd use him again.
Nicole Duncan: Spenser wanted somebody who didn't ask any questions. And this guy needed the work. Spenser rented him a car, plugged the address into the GPS. All he had to do was drop off the box.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Right. When he didn't, Spenser reported the car stolen. And then you figured that we'd think that Han was the killer.
Nicole Duncan: If that guy hadn't messed up, we'd be on our way to Paris right now. And he'd have some money in his pocket.
Steve McGarrett: He'd also be an accomplice to a murder. But Han Chi is dead now because of you. And you know what else? A little boy lost a father today because you wanted to take the easy way out. I really, really hope that you spend the rest of your life rotting in a jail cell thinking about that.

Officer Lori Weston, Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny and Steve notice Lori walking by looking like Sandy from Grease, and race after] Excuse me. Excuse me. Hey, hey! What the hell are you wearing? I wholeheartedly approve. I'm just curious.
Officer Lori Weston: It's theme movie night at Max's. We're all invited.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I wasn't invited.
Steve McGarrett: I wasn't invited either.
Officer Lori Weston: Oh, yes, you were. See?
[She pulls out her phone and shows Max's email invite]
Steve McGarrett, Danny 'Danno' Williams: Max is Doc@spacetrekkie?
Officer Lori Weston: Yeah. It's his personal email.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: It's a little too personal. I thought it was spam.
Steve McGarrett: Me too. I just - that's why...
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I knew this was your fault.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about? This is why he's been acting so crazy. Why's it my fault?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: It's your fault. Because I'm not good with the emails.
Steve McGarrett: [Max comes around the corner portraying Danny of Grease] Max, I'm sorry we didn't respond to your invitation.
Dr. Max Bergman: Lori.
[He holds his arm for her to take]
Officer Lori Weston: [Linking her arm with Max's] Ha-ha-ha. Tell me about it, Stud.
[They walk away arm in arm as Danny and Steve stare in disbelief]

Dr. Max Bergman: No wallet was found on the victim though. So I am attempting to -
[Notices Steve and Danny]
Dr. Max Bergman: How nice of you to arrive.
Steve McGarrett: Max, you - you okay? Something wrong?
Dr. Max Bergman: As I was saying, I'm attempting to get his fingerprints. But it seems all of his fingerprints have been sanded off. So we will have to find another way to identify him.

Dr. Max Bergman: Yes. I was able to recover a 9mm bullet from our victim's thorasic cavity, and send it over to ballistics.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, were they able to find a match?
[Max is ignoring Steve and Danny]
Officer Lori Weston: ...Did they, uh, find a match, Max?
Dr. Max Bergman: Unfortunately, the search for a match proved unsuccessful.

Officer Lori Weston: Great. Thanks, Max.
Steve McGarrett: Thanks Max.
Dr. Max Bergman: [Ignoring Steve] You're welcome, Agent Weston. Anything to help a friend.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Max walks between Steve and Danny, ignoring them]
[Danny to Steve]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What did you do to him?
Steve McGarrett: I'm sorry. What did I - ? Why me?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Well, he's obviously upset about something.
Steve McGarrett: Evidently. You automatically assume it's me. That's ridiculous.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Well, I know it wasn't me.
Steve McGarrett: You offend more people than I offend.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I don't think that's true.
Officer Lori Weston: [Trying to interrupt them] Guys. I'm gonna have to give you a timeout. Let's get out of here. We got a murderer to catch. Come on.

Steve McGarrett: [On the phone to Max] Say Max, uh is it possible that you're upset with us, perhaps Danny, for some reason?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Did he just hang up on us?
Steve McGarrett: I think he did. Max? yeah.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Definitely something you did.

Dr. Max Bergman: [Offering his arm to Lori] Lori.
Officer Lori Weston: [Lori laughs and takes Max's arm] Tell me about it, stud.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny is crashing at Steve's house, sleeping on the couch. Steve is kept awake by the TV left on downstairs. He goes down to see what's going on and turns the TV off]
[from under a blanket]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I was watching that.
Steve McGarrett: Through the blanket.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [pushes the blanket down] Oh well. I was listening anyway.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, I mean, because there's nothing more soothing than the sound of someone trying to sell you gold coins. Right?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know, I needed something to block out the sound of the ocean because the waves keep crashing over and over and over again... Steven.
Steve McGarrett: [holding on to his patience] Some would say it's a relaxing sound, Danny.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah. Some people would. And others like myself would say it's Hawaiian water torture. Okay. Two weeks now. I can't take it anymore.
Steve McGarrett: Okay. You know I don't mind you crashing with me until you find your own place. Right?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I appreciate that.
Steve McGarrett: Okay. But I can't sleep with the TV on.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I can't sleep with the TV off.
Steve McGarrett: We discussed that, uh, before you moved in.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, we did. I think I remember that it's, uh... McGarrett house rule number 32. No TV after midnight.
Steve McGarrett: I'm sorry the hotel didn't work out for you.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Wait a minute. Whoa, whoa. The hotel didn't not work out. Okay? It became infested with black mold. There's a difference. That's a sign from God.
Steve McGarrett: But... I have become accustomed to doing things a certain way.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, I know. And your way, your way is completely insane. It's- it's nuts. Who can take a shower in under three minutes? Huh?
Steve McGarrett: [all patience gone] Did you ever hear of a navy shower, Danny?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No!
Steve McGarrett: A navy shower?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Where do you think I woulda heard of something like that? A navy shower!
Steve McGarrett: Three minutes is a luxury!
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm not in the navy!
Steve McGarrett: A navy shower! Danny!


"Hawaii Five-O: Six Kilos (#1.22)" (1969)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danny] I cracked a few safes for naval intelligence... But as a professional I'd starve.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Takes gun away from Swanson] Ok genius, your turn... Sit Down!

Carl Swanson: The man isn't gonna like this!
Det. Steve McGarrett: [as Harry Brown] The man wants me checked... He checks himself!

Det. Steve McGarrett: Is this the whole welcoming committee?
Carl Swanson: What do you want... Chimes?

Margi Carstairs: Forgetting the job, what about the payoff?... Do you believe in that?
Det. Steve McGarrett: [as Harry Brown] I only believe in what I can hold in my hands, Baby.

Carl Swanson: Come on, Brown... We got things to do.
Det. Steve McGarrett: [as Harry Brown] Not with me you don't, Pretty Boy.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steves pulls a gun on Margi] You're not going anywhere, Honey!

Margi Carstairs: [Thinking McGarrett is Brown] Harry K. Brown?
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Shakes his head no] Steve McGarrett, Hawaii Five O... You're under arrest.


"Hawaii Five-O: All the King's Horses (#2.10)" (1969)
Det. Steve McGarrett: Finney paid his debt, in prison. When does a man stop paying for his past?
Senator John Oishi: That's a difficult question.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Is it? Seems to me the Constitution guarantees a citizen freedom from harassment.
Senator John Oishi: In 1941 I was also imprisoned. Interned by the government as an enemy alien. I was a Jap for five years an oriental for another ten. Now, I'm an American, but it was a long time before people stopped looking at me as if I were still the enemy.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is on his way to see the Governor] The key word, gentlemen is neutral, strictly neutral.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [after throwing Fletcher out of his office] Open the windows Danno... It's rank in here!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Fletcher has been killed in Finney's office] It looks like some of your old mainland pals are getting nervous.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is interrogating Watson] You're a slob, Mr. Watson... You've been snookered.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Finney] You wanna write your will?... Don't do it on my time!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Mike Finney has died] He left you his prize orchid, Danno.
Kono: Said to water it once a week, and no more.

Danny: [after Finney dies] He never got a second chance.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, not in this world anyway.


"Hawaii Five-0: Lapa'au (#2.8)" (2011)
Steve McGarrett: You kill a cop on this island, and we're gonna take it really personal.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Do me a favor, please, okay? This is obviously temporary until I find something different. More important that this place isn't haunted.
Steve McGarrett: Not haunted? You run a blue light over this place last thing you have to worry about is ghosts, my friend. You know what I'm saing?

Steve McGarrett: [Danny's putting a leash on the dog] Hey, what are you doing?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What do you mean, what am I doing? CSU's on the way right now. This guy's contaminating the scene. We gotta take him with us.
Steve McGarrett: He's not riding in the car with us.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What do you want me to do? Tie him to the bumper?

Steve McGarrett: Can you explain to me again why I'm sitting in the back and the dog's riding shotgun?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Well, I already told you he needs the window open.
Steve McGarrett: Oh, yes. Right. How else is he going to enjoy his tour of Waikiki?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know, for your information, dogs get car sick.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I lost the dog in the divorce. Rachel got custody of *my* dog.
Steve McGarrett: What happened to it?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: He was old. He died in the quarantine process. Which is another reason I hate this miserable island.
[the dog barks]
Steve McGarrett: Guess that's two of you.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to the dog] Yeah, buddy. I knew there was a reason I liked you.

Jeff Campbell: By the way, if you were thinking of going into your offfice, I just, a little warning. It's not a small dog, and uh, I'd watch my step.
Steve McGarrett: He went in my office?
Jeff Campbell: Yeah. Landmines all over the office.
Steve McGarrett: Danny...
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm going to take him for a walk.

Steve McGarrett: Where's Dr. Yang? Where is he?
Liam Miller: Dr. Yang's in the process of learning what it's like to be helpless.

Liam Miller: Why don't you shoot me, Agent Morrison? I can see it in your eyes that you want to.
Steve McGarrett: [to Dr. Yang] Hey, you hear me? You hear me? You're okay.
Liam Miller: I'm a dead man anyway. Go ahead. Draw your weapon. Shoot me. Come on. Draw your weapon and shoot me. You'd be doing me a favor.
Steve McGarrett: [McGarret moves towards them] You ain't getting off that easy.


"Hawaii Five-O: ...And They Painted Daisies on His Coffin (#1.5)" (1968)
Danny: It's a stinking job.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Who said it was anything else?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Trying to get Danny's statement] A cop pulls a gun he better remember every single detail! There's always trouble when you pull a gun, more if you fire it!... You hit somebody, and you're up to your hip pockets in it!... And if a cop kills somebody, every single fact better jibe or he's nailed to the wall!... He's guilty until he proves himself innocent!... Now that's backwards, ugly and unfair, But that's the way it is!... Now we gotta know everything there is to know right now!... So think!

Danny: He was just a boy, Steve!... A boy!... He probably never even had to shave!
Det. Steve McGarrett: You think it's easier to kill a grown man? You think the next one will be easier than this one? God help you if you do!... It better hurt every time!... It better tear your guts out every time you pull that gun, whether you use it or not!... You learn to live with it, but don't get used to it!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Georgie is swinging a chain at McGarrett] Unless you wanna swallow that chain, you better sit down... DIG?

Det. Steve McGarrett: Do you like this life Annie?... Shoving a needle in your arm?... Waking up with your stomach in knots?... Cold sweats?

Kono: [about Danny] You really gave it to him, Boss... Too hard maybe?
Det. Steve McGarrett: How hard is too hard?
Kono: Just asking.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Don't.

Det. Steve McGarrett: I'm gonna nail you, Chicken. You'll miss some angle... You stay smug, and I'll stay patient, and I'm gonna nail you.
Big Chicken: Never, Mr. McGarrett... No chance you'll ever... No way... Peace!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Arresting Big Chicken] Ain't no big thing bruddah!... But it's enough to close that iron gate on you forever!


"Hawaii Five-O: A Death in the Family (#10.24)" (1978)
Det. Steve McGarrett: Danno, hold it. I want to book this one! I think Chin would have liked that.
[the last line of the show]

Jimmy Rego: Why don't we settle this just between us?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Oh... Don't Tempt Me!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett has been questioning Rego] Don't you ever call me "cop"!... The name's McGarrett, and my title is Mister!

Det. Steve McGarrett: One day, I'll get you Pahoa... And your friends in high places.

Cappy Pahoa: [McGarrett is leaving] Perhaps one day, we'll meet again.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Meet is not what I had in mind.

Cappy Pahoa: I have friends in high places.
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Raps his hand on Pahoa's desk] And so do I!

[In the next scene after the death of Chin Ho Kelly, Steve is staring out the window with the shades closed. There's a knock on the door]
Det. Steve McGarrett: [solemn] Come in.
[Danno and Duke Lukela walk inside Steve's office]
Det. Steve McGarrett: I've just phoned Chin's daughter in San Francisco. She'll be here for the funeral.
Dan Williams: How did Suzy take it?
Det. Steve McGarrett: How would any daughter take it, Danno, and yet, to tell her that her old man's just been murdered? It broke her heart. I shouldn't have let him go undercover. He was too well known.
Duke: Steve... don't blame yourself. Chin wanted the job.
Dan Williams: He was the only one who could get any cooperation with the Chinese community.
Duke: The tip about the new protection racket came from one of Chin's snitches.
Det. Steve McGarrett: [sadly] Yeah.
[sighs]
Det. Steve McGarrett: I should've had a back-up on it at all times.
Dan Williams: It wouldn't have worked, Steve. You know how suspicious those Chinese merchants are? One man... alone... had a chance.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Did he, Danno?
[voice breaks whilst furious]
Det. Steve McGarrett: So help me God... I will not rest... until I get the man who killed him.
[Steve sobs in tears]

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Chin is undercover, and Steve is worried] Chin, for God's sake be careful.
Chin Ho: I can handle it.


"Hawaii Five-0: Ka Iwi Kapu (#2.7)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: All right, where's Weston?
Kono Kalakaua: She was, uh - she had to change into something more appropriate.
Steve McGarrett: Meaning she was wearing something inappropriate?
Kono Kalakaua: No. No. No. Uh, that's not what I said.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Kinda what you said.
[Kono sighs uncomfortably]
Steve McGarrett: Oh - she was wearing a costume.
Kono Kalakaua: Please don't tell her I told you.
Steve McGarrett: You didn't tell me. I guessed it.
Kono Kalakaua: Yeah. Right.
[Lori comes around the corner of the MEDIC vehicle a little out of breath]
Officer Lori Weston: Hey. Hey. Okay, let's get started.
[Steve and Danny smile and stare at Lori saying nothing]
Officer Lori Weston: [Lori to Kono] Oh, you told them.
Kono Kalakaua: They guessed.
Officer Lori Weston: Okay.
Steve McGarrett: Oh, this is fascinating.
Officer Lori Weston: I was at a Halloween party. What's so fascinating?
Steve McGarrett: The party isn't fascinating. What's fascinating is that you're not - you don't wanna tell us about it. You're kind of being all secretive. That's kind of weird.
Officer Lori Weston: Oh. Weird? Really? Not secretive. No. It's just my private life. And I can have a private life like you all have.
[Kono nods in affirmation]
Officer Lori Weston: [Lori looks at Danny] Why are you staring at me?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Uh, because I am just imagining, uh, who Lori Westin's alter ego might be. Uh, Wonder Woman.
Officer Lori Weston: No.
[Lori and Kono walk away and towards the crime scene]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Slutty Wonder Woman?
Officer Lori Weston: Stop it, Danno!

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Ah! Everybody. I have found an ancient, Hawaiian artifact.
[Holding up a video camera as evidence in the heiau before the priest has arrived]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Look at that. Huh? Maybe they got a picgure of their killer. Uh, evil spirits. Are they gonna come and curse me now or what?
[Cut to Danny's car, where he is angrily staring at his windshield that has been smashed with a huge boulder]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Steve, who is standing behind him] Do not!
Steve McGarrett: Should've waited for the priest, buddy.
[Pats Danny on the back]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Shut up!

Dr. Max Bergman: Well, I have some good news and... weird news. Take a look at this. See the marks under her right eye - fingerprint bruising.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, he grabbed her face.
Dr. Max Bergman: Exactly, and when he did that, he very kindly left a print.
[Max holds up a pair of glasses]
Dr. Max Bergman: A nice one on the right lens. I ran it through the system, and found a match. A man by the name of Greg Straithan.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Nice work, Max. I'm impressed.
Dr. Max Bergman: Now the weird news: our suspect, Greg Straithan... is dead.

Officer Lori Weston: Damn it! He got the drop on me. Sorry.
Steve McGarrett: Don't say sorry. He could've killed you.

Steve McGarrett: Hey, I'm sorry to interrupt trick-or-treating.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No. It's fine. Grace was thrilled. She hates that hotel. I've got to find an apartment.
Steve McGarrett: Well, you found 10 apartments, Danny. None are good enough.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Well, it's called taste and standards, buddy.

Steve McGarrett: Hey, I'm sorry to interrupt trick-or-treating.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No. It's fine. Grace was thrilled. She hates that hotel. I've got to find an apartment.
Steve McGarrett: Well, you found 10 apartments, Danny. None are good enough.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Well, it's called taste and standards, buddy.
Steve McGarrett: No, it's...
[interrupted by homeless man]
Samuel Lee: Go!
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'd like to. Thank you.
Samuel Lee: You're forbidden to be here.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [to Steve] It's like New Jersey.
[Back to the homeless man]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Sleep it off, buddy, huh?

Steve McGarrett: [after questioning a woman in a mental institution] Okay, so your professional assessment: is she just a great liar?
Officer Lori Weston: In the course of five minutes, we witnessed aphasia, dermàtillomania, paranoia, vivid hallucinations. My professional assessment: that girl is off her rocker.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah. A little bit. But if is she telling the truth? Did she shoot Straithan?
Officer Lori Weston: Well, she thinks she did. But there's no way to tell if she shot him or somebody else.


"Hawaii Five-O: Time and Memories (#3.4)" (1970)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Cathy wakes up Steve with a phone call] Cathy... Cathy is that you?
Cathy Wallis: I'm sorry, Steve... I Shouldn't have called.
[Cathy hangs up]

Det. Steve McGarrett: Frank Wallis brings a lot of new industry to Hawaii... He's a very important man.
Danny: ...Was.

Cathy Wallis: [to Steve during a flashback] You do understand what I have to do, don't you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No... And I never will.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is about to arrest Cathy] I'm sorry, Cathy... Sorry to do this... You're under arrest for the murder of your husband.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Cathy and Joan about Arthur] It was a brilliant ploy... He found out he could be in Honolulu, and call someone else in Honolulu by way of San Francisco, and create a foolproof alibi for himself.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [about Cathy] Kono, how's she holding up?
Kono: One first class lady... Taking it okay

Arthur Dixon: [Talking to Steve about his law education] Stanford Law
Det. Steve McGarrett: Good school.
Arthur Dixon: Yeah, don't remind me... Years of classes by day, driving a cab at night... Studying in between, sleeping when and if there was any time in between.


"Hawaii Five-O: Pray Love Remember, Pray Love Remember (#1.12)" (1969)
Danny: You're always one step ahead.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's why I've got the big office, Danno.
Danny: [Danno flashes McGarrett the peace sign] Peace and love, strong brother.
Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett flashes him back] Peace.

Che Fong: From the depth of that print, I'd say he weighed between 210 to 260.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Little fella, huh?

Danny: Guess who's 6 feet 6, strong as a bull, and wears size 14 and a half EEE shoes?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Sir Lancelot, John Hayes... Who else?

Kono: You got something against having an easy case once in a while, Boss?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Let's find John Hayes first and see how easy it is, huh?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [John Hays can't recall what he did] You better remember mister!... YOU BETTER BUST A GUT REMEMBERING!

Danny: [Steve has put an APB on 2 fish] Did I hear you right, Steve?... Are you putting me on?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Do I look like I'm making jokes?... I said I wanted to put out an all points for 2 fish, and that's what I meant... 2 fish.
Kono: What names do they go by, boss?

Det. Steve McGarrett: Kono, how much weight are you carrying?
Kono: About 245.
Det. Steve McGarrett: What size shoes do you wear?
Kono: I got teeny little feet... Size 13.


"Hawaii Five-O: Face of the Dragon (#1.15)" (1969)
Colonel Tyler: [McGarrett shows Col. Tyler a recovered schematic that had been stolen] We had our best security on this operation. Have we been penetrated?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Colonel, you've been stabbed.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is surprised by how easily they managed to find the missing top secret military equipment] I don't believe it.
Danny: I may not believe in Santa Claus but I never send back any Christmas presents.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [trying to a diagnosis of a patient] All right, come... What is it... Voo Doo, poison dart?... What's the mystery?
Doc: I said rare, McGarrett... Try bubonic plague.

Doc: [Talking about dead patient] He could have infected thousands before we found him.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's a happy thought.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Did you write these prescriptions?
Dr. Leo Kuh: I did... Do you find something sinister about them?

Horace Sibley: It's about martini time, isn't it McGarrett?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Not a chance.

Det. Steve McGarrett: You look tired, doctor.
Dr. Alexandra Kemp: Have you looked in the mirror lately?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Only when I shave... And I do that running.


"Hawaii Five-O: Most Likely to Murder (#2.21)" (1970)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve wants to know how Lou is] How is he?
Danny: Bad.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett won't let Lou work on the case] There's no place in a homicide for emotion, Lou... You know that.

Chin Ho: [Chin is reading off Gary Oliver's rap sheet] One suspended sentence, 18 months at Illinois State Reformatory, two years at Joliet. One bad customer... Prime suspect?
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Slams fist on his desk] You bet he is!... In spades!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Trying to find Gary Oliver] Innocent people don't jump out of windows, honey.
Annette Barnes: Man... When you have a record, you learn to jump!

Det. Steve McGarrett: What's going on?
Kono: [Kono and Chin are watching Miss Warren leave] Just waiting for the mailman, Steve.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Lou after Lou has killed Gary Oliver] Every cop on this island has been working overtime to help you... And you just kicked every one of them in the teeth!... Now they'll have to work double time to prove to the public that they're not all a bunch of killers hiding behind a badge!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Lou has been charged with murder] I want you to understand something, Lou... You'll no longer be a grief stricken husband throwing himself on the mercy of the court.

Det. Steve McGarrett: There's a soldier on the Rock.

Willy Stone: I did it.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Did what, Willy?
Willy Stone: Busted up the kid's hand to keep him from gettin' his head busted up like mine... Robby woulda ended up just like me, just like me. He woulda! He woulda!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Edmonds has just arrived in Hawaii, and Steve is showing his ID] Mr. Edmonds?... Steve McGarrett, Hawaii Five-O.
Edmonds: You know... I expected dancing girls, flowers, a kiss on the cheek... And all I get is a cop.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Edmonds] How long do you plan to be here?
Edmonds: Well. that doesn't sound friendly... I came here for some sun and some broads, and as soon as I get my fill...
Det. Steve McGarrett: In the future, let me suggest you find your action in Detroit... And use a sunlamp.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Edmonds] Let me give you some advice... Don't spit on the sidewalk.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Edmonds] Let me make you a promise... If anything happens to Willy Strone, anything... And it will be a long time before you get back to Detroit.

Professor Akbar Savang: Well, Jhakal's theft has been exposed, and the money is safe. We accomplished what we set out to do... as you did. No apologies, Mr. McGarrett. No regrets.
Luang Koryo: Thank you for your help.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Don't thank me. You're both under arrest. Book 'em.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Danno, get out to the airport, check normal security... Find out how many additional men we'll need to cover every entrance... I'll join you at the field as soon as I'm done.
Danny: Doing what?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Trying to keep one match away from the fuse.

Luang Koryo: Mr. McGarrett, you are a policeman, not a politician!
Det. Steve McGarrett: Exactly!... And I'm concerned with facts not opinions!

Luang Koryo: I consider this very unprofessional!
Det. Steve McGarrett: And I consider this a lot of work!

Luang Koryo: [McGarrett is frisking Koryo] How dare you!... I have diplomatic immunity!
Det. Steve McGarrett: As the President says, I am a cautious man.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danno] Jhakal doesn't trust anyone, and neither do I.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danny] When I was a kid, my old man taught us a rhyme..."He had six honest serving men, they taught him all they knew... Their names were Where and When and What and Why and How and Who".

I work for the State of Hawaii, not the federal government... Now, are you gonna tell me what's going on here?

Johnny Fargo: How do you play it... With cards or dice?

Al: [about Kim Tung Chang] One thing... He always came in at the end of the month and paid his bill... Gotta give him a few points for that.
Det. Steve McGarrett: He just killed the mother of a ten month old baby... How many points do we give him for that?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Phil Gray] What are you gonna get from a guy who just died inside?

Steve McGarrett: Looks like our witness is a fighter.
[Shows Kono hairspray, ignitor and burn marks]
Steve McGarrett: She hurt one of them.
Kono Kalakaua: Good for her!

Steve McGarrett: [to some HPD officers] The witness comes back, you take her straight to the courthouse. The shooters come back... you put them down. And you make sure they stay down.

Steve McGarrett: Julie. Julie, put down the weapon, okay? Put down the weapon and walk towards me. We're cops.
Julie Masters: So were the last two.

Julie Masters: Why aren't you coming with us?
Steve McGarrett: I'm gonna hunt down the guys that have been trying to hurt you.
[McGarrett leaves]
Chin Ho Kelly: Some guys... They're just born without the fear gene.

Steve McGarrett: I may not be able to see you, okay. But I can hear you. And you have a tone.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Tone? I don't have a tone. I don't have a tone.
Steve McGarrett: You say I have a face. You, my friend, you have a tone. You have a tone, okay? And it's a tone that says "I'm gonna hit somebody."

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Grace and Rachel got carjacked.
Kono Kalakaua: Are they okay?

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I gotta go.
Steve McGarrett: Go, go, go.

Chin Ho Kelly: [tracking the assassins after their witness] How do you know they went this way?
Steve McGarrett: Tracking humans in terrain like this is about one thing: seeing what's out of context in nature and knowing what caused it. Like that flat, overturned rock back up there. It would have taken a two-hundred pound man running downhill to do that. That rock also indicates they're about an hour ahead of us.
Chin Ho Kelly: Really? The rock told you that?

Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, you pinpointed the area... Thanks, Danno.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is trying to talk Frank down] Frank, listen to me please... I'm not talking to you as a cop. I'm not just looking to take you in... I understand how it is with you. I understand how it is with your people... Now, I know it's your land. I feel ashamed of what's being done in the name of progress... But we can't turn back the clock.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Frank] Frank, I can't promise you that you can keep your ranch, or any part of it... But I can promise you a fair trial, and a recommendation for leniency. You have a daughter and a grandson who love you.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Frank has just been killed] He finally made it.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Frank] What your looking for up here, Frank, it's gone... It's pau.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Harry about Joe Matsukino] You're the only man alive that knows as much about him as he does himself.

Helen Kadison: [about the birth of her son] Too bad... He never got to know his father.
Det. Steve McGarrett: He will... Through your eyes.

Joseph Matsukino: The latest medical journals are fascinating.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Maybe you missed a beat yourself Matsukino... You should have read further. The new treatments are even more fascinating than the diseases.

Joseph Matsukino: Whats with the ambulance?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Has to be some way to get my star witness here.

Harry Cardonus: 10 years I've been with Joe Matsukino... Nothing could stop him when he decided to kill someone.
Det. Steve McGarrett: You wanna bet?
Harry Cardonus: That's a suckers bet. You might as well throw your money away to charity.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Then what have you got to lose?

Peter Willis: How do we forget about Charlie Cadison?
Det. Steve McGarrett: We don't.

Det. Steve McGarrett: I promised you, Matsukino... Oahu State Prison for life!... Lets go!


"Hawaii Five-0: Ko'olauloa (#1.6)" (2010)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: This place is crazy. All these people, you'd think it was the Super Bowl.
Steve McGarrett: That's Hawaii. The Coral Prince Championship *is* our Super Bowl.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Grace keeps asking me for surfing lessons. I told her no chance.
Steve McGarrett: What, you got something against surfing now?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, I don't have anything against surfing. I have something against sharks, skin cancer, anything involving my daughter wearing a bikini.

Steve McGarrett: You okay?
Kono Kalakaua: Yeah. I want to go to the Coral Prince House. Talk to the team. Get some statements.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Kono, we can cover this one for you.
Kono Kalakaua: No. I want this one.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm sorry. Is that - are you speaking English?
Surfer: Hey no need for get agro.
Steve McGarrett: He caught it on land, brah... Danno don't surf.
Surfer: Shoots.
[Surfer leaves]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I dare you to tell me what he just said. I'm done.

Steve McGarrett: Okay. So the shot was fired from Papaukea Ridgeline above the houses.
Chin Ho Kelly: Yeah. Problem is there's no roads in or out of there.
Steve McGarrett: ...We don't need roads.

Steve McGarrett: On this Island, there is an easy way to do things and a hard way. With the Kapu, talking to Ka Wika *before* we go after Levi and Diego is the easy way.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Ah, so what's uh, throwing somebody in a shark tank and then hanging another guy off a roof?
Steve McGarrett: Those guys were from out of town.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You're a sick person, you know that?
Steve McGarrett: In the best possible way though, right?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, no, not in the best possible way. In a very terrible way. It's not a compliment. You understand?

Steve McGarrett: Trust me I know this road.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: This is not a road. A road has asphault, two lanes. This is dirt on a cliff, okay? It's a long way down.
Steve McGarrett: Scared?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No. I am not scared. I am rationally concerned.

Steve McGarrett: You know when I say "Book 'im Danno." It's a term of enderment.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay, do it everyday. I like it.


"Hawaii Five-O: The Reunion (#3.8)" (1970)
Det. Steve McGarrett: When was the last time you saw this Rashiri?
Frank Epstein: February 17, 1945. It was sunset, they had just lowered their flag for the last time. As a final gesture, Rashiri ordered one of us hung from the flagpole. Does that fix the time for you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: So that means you haven't seen him for 25 years or more?
Frank Epstein: *This*
[thumps his crutch on the ground]
Frank Epstein: is one of his souvenirs! If you had plastic toes, think you'd ever forget his face? I'm not mistaken!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Questioning Shigato] Any enemies?
Shigato: A man who reaches 60 without making a few enemies... I doubt he has any friends.

Danny: [Someone has put a bomb in Shigato's car] Think it's a joker, Steve?
Det. Steve McGarrett: If it isn't... Somebody just served Shigato a death warrant.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danny] Whoever it is wants to put Shigato through a wringer... Before they kill him.

Frank Epstein: [to McGarrett while visiting Mitch in jail] Where are the rubber hoses?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Great sense of humor, Mr. Epstein... After you're finished, come to my office.
Frank Epstein: If I get lost, I'm sure one of your watchdogs will show me the way.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danny] Shigato's our man... He's got to be Rashiri!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [trying to get Frank to drop his gun] He tried to break you 25 years ago, and he couldn't... Are you going to let him break you now?


"Hawaii Five-0: Ha'i'ole (#2.1)" (2011)
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: Let me guess: the Governor had it coming.
Steve McGarrett: Hmph. You didn't have to come down here, sir.

Chin Ho Kelly: [about the Police car used when he escaped] I'll take it up to the North Shore. Distract HPD.
Steve McGarrett: You are HPD, Chin. Remember?
Chin Ho Kelly: Just cause the badge says HPD, doesn't mean I'm not Five-O. You know that.
Steve McGarrett: You did what you had to do, okay? Right now I want to find Wo Fat.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Please, please listen to me. Is there *any* way I can talk you out of this?
Steve McGarrett: Has it ever worked before, Danny?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, so - let's go.

Lt. Governor Sam Denning: Commander McGarrett, you have my sincerest apologies for everything you've been through.
Steve McGarrett: With all due respect, sir, I don't need your apologies. What I need you to do is re-instate my Five-O Task Force so we can go after this son-of-a-bitch right here.
Lt. Governor Sam Denning: ...Well no doubt, that Five-O had an impact on crime. So as Lt. Governor I'll grant your request.
Steve McGarrett: All right! Thank you, sir.
Lt. Governor Sam Denning: But there are conditioins.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What conditions?
Lt. Governor Sam Denning: Governor Jameson gave you full immunity to basically run roughshod over every single law on the State's books. That's not gonna happen on my watch. You cross the line you answer to me.
Steve McGarrett: Understood, sir. But just so your clear. Sometimes we get put in positions where lives are on the line, and we have to make split second decisions. The line you're talking about gets a little hard to see.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [after hearing a tip from Joe] Is there any way I can talk you out of this?
Steve McGarrett: When has it worked before Danny?

[last lines]
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: Everything alright?
Steve McGarrett: No. We need to talk to Victor Hesse. Whatever deal Wo Fat is making with my father, he might know somethin' about it.


"Hawaii Five-O: Not That Much Different (#1.21)" (1969)
Det. Steve McGarrett: Chinese say, "All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today." I think we got some pretty good seeds in those other kids, Danno, don't you?

Ned Horvath: [McGarrett has just finished questioning a group of anti-war activists] Mr. McGarrett, we've got nothing against you personally, it's just what you represent that bugs us. You do understand that?
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'm not even going to try.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to protesters] Look, I don't feel any need to defend my position or professon, but I'd like to mention a few names. John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and before them Mahatma Gandhi. Ever heard of them?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Carole] I abhor violence in any form... I think that violence breeds violence on any level.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Ned] Lesson one... Nobody is loved by everybody.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [about Lannie] She didn't kill Julian.
Danny: How can you be so sure?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Cop instinct.


"Hawaii Five-0: Mana'o (#1.8)" (2010)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Yelling] Our job is to go after the suspect! Not the victim! Not the previously convicted! The suspect, Ochoa. He deal drugs and he's dangerous. That's what I'm gonna focus on, okay?
Steve McGarrett: [Sarcastically] I am so glad you're not a hothead. I would hate to work with someone like that.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: So uh, just a question: things go bad: which one of these guys do you want?
Steve McGarrett: I'll, uh, take the ugly one.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's good. They're both ugly.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Where is Ochoa?
Bastille: I'm not saying a word. Not one single word.
Steve McGarrett: You wanted to do it the hard way, you should have just said so.

Steve McGarrett: [Bastille's on the hood of Danny's car] Just for the record, if I pulled something like this, you would be reading me the riot act on proper police procedure.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No. I'd probably just arrest you.
Steve McGarrett: Compared to this, hanging a guy off a roof and throwing a guy in a shark tank is pretty tame.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know what? I disagree. Shark cage is way worse.
Steve McGarrett: Whatever. You're wrong. I'm just saying, to be clear, next time I get a free pass, okay?

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I appreciate you being here. I know you didn't know him.
Steve McGarrett: I know you.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Thank you.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: What's with the face?
Steve McGarrett: I don't have a face.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yes, you do. You have a face, okay? I am a detective. It's what I do. I read people.
Steve McGarrett: All right.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: And you, my friend, have a face.
Steve McGarrett: All right. I wanna ask you something, but I know it's gonna piss you off.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Would you not always be so judgmental?


"Hawaii Five-O: The One with the Gun (#2.19)" (1970)
Lorenzo Corman: The bullet that killed my brother will match... The one in my shoulder.
Det. Steve McGarrett: One man is dead because you decided personal revenge is more important than due process of law. Too bad you don't know as much about law and justice, as you know about guns and bullets. Let's go.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Lorenzo is leaving] You just said you had something for me.
Lorenzo Corman: I said I can fight back!... that's what I said!

Kono: [Mcgarrett has leads on the case] I wish I was as slim as those leads.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Maybe you will be by the time you run them down.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Maggie] Lorenzo got his revenge.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Lorenzo has hung up the phone] You can tell him for me if he contacts you again that there no way he can get off this rock!... Every police officer on the street is looking for him, and they know he is armed and dangerous!
Maggie Corman: Even if he is innocent?

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett is looking at a chart of the poker game] Who could be Mr. D?
Danny: Why are you so interested in D?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Because he's the one who killed Peter... It wasn't Enright.


"Hawaii Five-O: The Ransom (#3.6)" (1970)
Nelson Blake: [McGarrett returns Timmy] How?... How'd you do it?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Kono... Kono cut him loose.
Nelson Blake: Kono?... Where is he?... Can I talk to him?
Det. Steve McGarrett: They grabbed him.
Nelson Blake: That was a very courageous thing he did.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... Yeah, he's a good cop.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [the kidnappers have Kono] Danno, I swear, that if they kill that big Hawaiian, I'm gonna get them! No matter where they go, no matter how long it takes... I'm gonna get them!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Chin about the kidnappers] They can't get out, we can't get in... If we rush the place, they kill Kono.

Kono: [Kono has been rescued] Steve!... I knew you'd get here Steve!
Det. Steve McGarrett: How are you, You big Kanaka?
Kono: Starved!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Blake is going to pay the ransom for his son] No, Mr. Blake, please don't try to do this youself... You can't handle it.
Nelson Blake: Why not?... I've handled bigger deals before.

Nelson Blake: [On the phone with the kidnappers] They want the money, or they'll kill...
Det. Steve McGarrett: ...Kono


"Hawaii Five-O: Force of Waves (#3.7)" (1970)
Danny: [Steve has been a boat explosion] Take it easy, Steve... You're gonna be alright.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Danno... Who pulled me out?
Danny: Cal.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is on the way to the hospital] Find out what happened here, Danno.

Danny: [Danny is briefing Steve] Che Fong examined the wreckage... It was a directional bomb placed right under the helm.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Lucky I went forward to cast off on that bowline.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [the nurse is making Steve use a wheelchair] Regulations.
[smiles]

Det. Steve McGarrett: You know something, Danno?... You're a pretty good cop.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is questioning Cal] 1967... You were in Maui in 1967, weren't you Cal?
Cal Anderson: I don't know.


"Hawaii Five-0: Ma Ke Kahakai (#1.20)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: With all due respect, what's wrong with an old fashioned baseball game, Steve? Huh?
Steve McGarrett: Never been to a professional baseball game.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That doesn't surprise me at all.

Steve McGarrett: Maybe someone's trying to lead me to Wo Fat.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Maybe Wo Fat's trying to lure you.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [They need to search some fish for evidence] Go ahead, babe. After you.
Steve McGarrett: It's all you, babe. I can't get my cast wet.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's low. That's really low.

Steve McGarrett: You see this? I'm going to put my weapon away, okay? Don't shoot me now. You shoot me, he's gonna shoot you. It's gonna be a big mess.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: This is not a hike, Steven. Your dad used to bring you up here when you were a kid?
Steve McGarrett: Every year.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, well, that would explain a lot.
Steve McGarrett: You can bring Gracie up here when she gets a bit older.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Listen to me, Gracie wants to go get a manicure and a pedicure, okay? She's not interested in going to look at old graffiti on rocks, okay? This is basically child abuse.
Steve McGarrett: They're called petroglyphs, Danny. They're called petroglyphs.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That is a fancy name for graffiti etched in rocks, okay?

Steve McGarrett: [Showing Danny petroglyphs on the rocks during a hike] It's pretty cool, huh? Better than a Yankees game?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Deadly serious] It's not even close to as good as a Yankees game. But... it's nice.


"Hawaii Five-0: Oia'i'o (#1.24)" (2011)
Steve McGarrett: Are you going to ask her out?
Chin Ho Kelly: Who? Miss Hills?
Steve McGarrett: No, the governor. Who do you think? Everytime we see Lauren, she's sexting you with her eyes.
Chin Ho Kelly: Wha?... Come on.
Steve McGarrett: What? Are you kidding me? For a great detective, you're really clueless sometimes.

Jenna Kaye: Think about it. You took out Victor Hess, and the Yakuza here, his right and left hands. You made it personal.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah? Well, he's really going to be pissed when I toss his ass in jail for the rest of his life, isn't he?

Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Entering Dale O'Reilly store] Well, hope you like it. This is what it's gonna look like when you die. This is your own Heaven. Want anything while we're here? New ammo belt? Night vision goggles? Ooo. Ooo. Powered eggs.
Steve McGarrett: Let me tell you something, I'll take powered eggs over your eggs any day.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: My eggs?... You love me eggs.
Steve McGarrett: Terrible, Danny.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Let me make a statement, okay? Out of the top ten dopiest suggestions you've ever had, this is number one with a bullet.
Chin Ho Kelly: What idea is that?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Oh, I tell you, he, uh, he wants to break into the Governor's Mansion.
Kono Kalakaua: What?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: All those who think that's a certifiably demented idea raise your hand.
[Chin, Kono raise their hands. To Jenna]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Please raise your hand.
Jenna Kaye: I'm new. I didn't think I got a vote.
Steve McGarrett: You don't get a vote, okay? The rest of you are forgetting this isn't a democracy. It's a benevolent dictatorship.

Kamekona: I'm a parolee, brah. You know that! And possession of a firearm can send me back to jail. Besides you're a cop. Where's your gun?
Steve McGarrett: I'm not a cop anymore! I need your help... Please.
Kamekona: Come on. This way.

Steve McGarrett: Stop lying to me! You created Five-O so you could keep an eye on me. So I wouldn't pick up where my father left off. Isn't that right? You keep your friends close, but your enemies even closer.
Governor Pat Jameson: I am not the enemy, Steve. I have always been loyal to the people who are loyal to me.
Steve McGarrett: Really? Is that why you had Lauren Hills murdered? Because she was disloyal.
Governor Pat Jameson: Yes.

Det. Steve McGarrett: We're working on it, Mrs. Watson

Det. Steve McGarrett: Curious... Very curious.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [No one shows up to get the ranson] I have a feeling we've been had, Danno.
Danny: Yeah, but by what, and by whom?... Or is it who?

Det. Steve McGarrett: How are your corns, Chin?
Chin Ho: Killing me, Boss.

Dr. Wong: [Ted is improving] Perhaps the bee hasn't hurt him too much.
Det. Steve McGarrett: What about the bee?
Dr. Wong: [Points to Danno] He knows about the bee.

Lewis Avery Filer: I want to report a robbery in progress... Kams Jewelery... Oh
[hurts himself removing his makeup]
Lewis Avery Filer: Sorry, hiccups... Kams Jewelers, The Jewelry Mart, at the corner of South and Curts.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah, go on.
Lewis Avery Filer: Go on?... Isn't that enough?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, you said "in progress"... How do you know?... Who is this anyway?
Lewis Avery Filer: Why, the thief, of course!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Surveying crime scene] We ought to book this guy for littering.

Chin Ho: Is this guy a thief or a committee?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Well, I'll tell you one thing... He's no beginner.

Lewis Avery Filer: You know, McGarrett... You're too smart to be a cop.
Det. Steve McGarrett: And you're too smart to be a thief.

Lewis Avery Filer: [after Mcgarrett scrapes dirt from his shoe] That's not fair, McGarrett
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'll apologize in court.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [after he catches Filer retrieving the money] Time is always on my side, Mr Filer... You should know that.

Attorney General: Your plan's no good, Steve. You can't use kid gloves on a rogue cop.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Phil Kalama's no rogue cop.
Attorney General: The facts say otherwise.
Det. Steve McGarrett: The facts say he's a grieving father.
Attorney General: He's still a cop, Steve. And no peace officer has the right to use his badge or his gun to... to work out his own personal problems.
Det. Steve McGarrett: We all know that, sir, but we have no proof that he's doing it.
Attorney General: You yourself said that he roughed up Morgan. There's an eyewitness who said she saw Kalama push Nat Keller off the stairway of a ten-story building. Now, what more do you want?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Proof. Proof!
Attorney General: You know the code, Steve. Phil Kalama's a cop.
Det. Steve McGarrett: He's more. He's a *good* cop. Twenty-three years on the force. I don't want that twenty-three years destroyed. I don't want Phil Kalama destroyed.
Attorney General: Better he be destroyed than the public trust in every man that wears a badge.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'm trying to preserve that trust, by preventing the crucifixion of an innocent man.
Attorney General: If he's innocent.
Det. Steve McGarrett: "If" he's innocent? Don't we *assume* he's innocent until proven guilty?

Det. Steve McGarrett: What have we got, Danno?
Danny: Heartbreaker. Two guys get out of a parked car, start clobbering Joey Kalama. No reason.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Always a reason, Danno.

Lois Walker: That rock ya a little, McGarrett? Joey and I planning to get married?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Nothing rocks me anymore, honey.

Steve McGarrett: No, he didn't.
Lori Weston: Yeah, he did. My mom too. It was great.
Steve McGarrett: What, was he a eunuch?

Steve McGarrett: Mrs. Preston, we know he has a record.
Barb Preston: Heh. That. That was a family thing. Luke borrowed the Porsche without permission, so I called the cops. You know, just to teach him a lesson. He's 18 so it went on his record.
Kono Kalakaua: Okay, you do realize that using law enforcement as a disciplinary tool is a bad idea, right?

Chin Ho Kelly: I know you trust him.
Steve McGarrett: Of course I trust him! I mean, he's like a father to me. When my father wasn't around, he was - for years.
Chin Ho Kelly: That was a long time ago, Steve. People change. How much do you really know about his life over the last 10 years?

Lieutenant Commander Joe White: You're interfering with something that you don't understand.
Steve McGarrett: Then why don't you explain it to me, Joe? Tell me what the Hell's going on!... You gotta wake up. The walls are closing in on you. HPD wants answers. The Yakuza wants blood. Shelburne - is he worth this? Is he worth going to jail for? Is he worth dying for?
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: People are already dying, son. I'M TRYING TO MAKE IT STOP!

Steve McGarrett: I was tortured over Shelburne. I was tortured! Joe, Jenna Kaye paid with her life. I deserve answers. I want answers. I want them right now!
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: You know, son. There was a time when I'd have had you up on charges of insubordination for that.
Steve McGarrett: You know, we're not in the service anymore, Joe. And you're not my commanding officer.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: You're right.
[Joe unbuckles his seat belt]
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: I'm not.
[Joe exits the car]

Owen Sutherland: They know about Donovan. About the pay off.
Bob Ledford: That's on you. I never asked you to pay anyone off.

Bob Ledford: You stupid son of a bitch!
[Ledford punches Sutherland which leaves him dangling from a steel girder off the open side of the building]

Steve McGarrett: NCIS, huh?
Kensi Blye: Yep.
Steve McGarrett: You tell Sam, I haven't forgotten about that steak dinner I owe him, but he's gotta come out here to collect, okay?
Kensi Blye: I'd start saving up. Man can put away the protein.

Steve McGarrett: There something I should know?
Kensi Blye: Um, basically I owe Joe one. He pulled some strings and got me out of a sticky situation in Jakarta. So uh, yeah, you can trust me.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: You weren't supposed to be in Jakarta.
Kensi Blye: You weren't supposed to *know* I was in Jakarata.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: Point taken.

Lieutenant Commander Joe White: [about Kensi Blye] Steve, she's young enough to be my daughter.
Steve McGarrett: You know something Joe, she kind of reminds me of wife number 2. Tall, dark, lethal. Seems to be your type.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: Sorry, you're breaking up.

Vitor Boriero: Yo McGarrett. Thanks for taking my spot on the card. Jake wouldn't want the fans to be cheated out of a fight.
Steve McGarrett: It's all for the kids, bro. I'll try to put on a good show for you... Besides, I'm the one who, um, dislocated your shoulder.
Vitor Boriero: Yeah, I didn't forget. Hit 'em hard bro.

Lieutenant Commander Joe White: [after finding Mokoto's body] We did this.
Steve McGarrett: What?
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: Our questions got Mokoto killed.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Kline wouldn't reveal where he hid the vial] All right gentlemen, is that it?... Have we exhausted all possibilities?

Jonathan Kaye: [McGarrett is letting Kline go] If you lose him, McGarrett... It's your responsibility.
Det. Steve McGarrett: If I lose him, Mr. Kaye... Do you think it really matters?

Jonathan Kaye: [Kaye wants Kline's strain] When we find the strain, if we find it... I don't want it destroyed unless it's absolutely necessary.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's not your decision or mine, Mr. Kaye.

Jonathan Kaye: [Kaye wants to save Klines Q strain] Kline's Q strain is the only one of its kind... It could be the ultimate safeguard of our national defense.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'm not gonna risk their lives to save your defensive capability kit.

Danny Williams: How does this not end with both of us dying? You're gonna blow something up?
Steve McGarrett: Called a direction charge. Sends explosive energy in one direction. Anything that's behind it, theoretically, is reasonably safe.
Danny Williams: It's reasonably... nothing of what you just said sounds reasonable.

Danny Williams: Well, I don't know what the hell I was doing coming here getting relationship advice from you. What do you know?
Steve McGarrett: I know people.
Danny Williams: You know how to *kill* people. There's a big difference.

Danny Williams: [Steve is about to cause an explosion that he hopes will create an opening for them to escape through] Hold on. Before we do this, I just want you to know one thing.
Steve McGarrett: What?
Danny Williams: Whatever happens, I really, *really*... from the bottom of my heart... hate you so much.
[He laughs and Steve joins him]
Steve McGarrett: I love you, too, pal.

Danny Williams: [He and Steve have just been rescued from the collapsed building] Well, if this is the, uh... power of positive thinking, I like it. It's good.
Steve McGarrett: You know, that's the same as you, uh... you admitting that I was right. I don't wanna put words in your mouth or anything.

Danny Williams: When we were in there, you said, uh... you know, before you did the thing with the bomb, you said what you said. I want you to know I... I feel the same way.
Steve McGarrett: [Knowing full well what he is referring to] How is that exactly?
Danny Williams: You gonna make me say it?
[Steve just looks at him and waits]
Danny Williams: C'mere.
[They hug]
Danny Williams: I love ya.


"Hawaii Five-0: Mea Makamae (#2.4)" (2011)
Joe White: Jambalaya's got some kick. Try it.
[Steve samples the Jambalaya. Steve starts coughing]
Steve McGarret: You've got a cast iron stomach. That should be weaponized.
[to Kamekona]
Steve McGarret: You got some water in there?
Kamekona: Sparkling or flat?
Steve McGarret: Seriously, I can't breathe right now. Anything.

Danny 'Dan-o' Williams: It's amazing. I mean one day you're the King of the Ocean, right? Next thing you know you are hanging from the ceiling at a museum with little children looking at your private parts.
Steve McGarret: Yep. Kind of puts things in perspective.

Steve McGarret: Coffee is not a relationship. It's a beverage.
Danny 'Dan-o' Williams: That's not true. Every single relationship starts with a cup of coffee. Then it's dinner and a movie, okay? Next thing you know, you're divorced, you're moving to Hawaii so you can see your daughter every other weekend.
Steve McGarret: You need to talk to someone professionally.
Danny 'Dan-o' Williams: I do. You. And now the sessions over.

Steve McGarret: Listen Lori, I can make the notification.
Officer Lori Weston: Thanks, no. I need to do this on my own. It's not the first time I've had to tell a parent they've lost a child. I just hoped that I'd never have to do it again.

[last lines]
Steve McGarret: You never gave that video to the DOD, did you Joe?
Joe White: ...No.
Steve McGarret: You know what? I know he was your friend, but he was *my* father. Whatever it is you're trying to protect me from I can handle it. You understand me?
Joe White: Did you ever think that maybe you're not the only one I'm trying to protect?
Steve McGarret: What are you talking about?
Joe White: Risk versus reward, Steve. How much damage are you willing to do to your family - to your family's name - because whatever's on that video, it's not going to bring your father back.
Steve McGarret: I need to know


"Hawaii Five-O: The Ways of Love (#1.7)" (1968)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Danny] Stay with this... We're in trouble.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is working on a stolen jewel case] If Washington claims this case is important, then maybe they can pull some strings.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Dave Barca has taken Steve's radio] You gone sick or something, pal?... You sick?

Dave Barca: [Barca needs Steve's help] I'll make you rich.
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's pretty big talk for a piggy bank robber.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Barca needs Crowley's help] I think you're using me for some kinda patsy.


"Hawaii Five-0: Lekio (#2.18)" (2012)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay. First of all, please slow down.
[Steve is driving Danny's car at speed with Max in the back seat]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay? We don't even know which way they went.
Steve McGarrett: This road is the only way out of the marina.
[He swerves in and out of traffic]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Easy. Please. Easy, Speed Racer, huh?
Dr. Max Bergman: Actually, this vehicle was engineered to be driven in this manner.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Could you stop, Max? You're not helping!

Steve McGarrett: Why don't you tell me what happened at the Hilton today?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Nothing happened at the Hilton.
Steve McGarrett: Cuz you... seem upset... to me.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You became a shrink all of a sudden?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah. And you can take a seat in the back there, uh, if you, if you'd be more comfortable lying down. Or, you can stay where you're sitting and tell me what happened cuz either way I'm gonna keep asking you, so it's up to you.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay. Sigmund. You wanna know what's bothering me?
Steve McGarrett: [Dramatic pause while he slowly nods his head once] It's your hour.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay. I'll tell you, by the pool, there was this very, very, creepy, *creepy* child.
Steve McGarrett: Okay.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I mean, a real, real malcontent. Okay?
Steve McGarrett: Mm-hmm.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: And you shoulda seen Grace. I mean, she was giggling like a school girl every time this kid opens his mouth.
Steve McGarrett: Uh. Grace *is* a school girl.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah. And this guy's a stalker. Okay? A stalker. He fits the profile.
Steve McGarrett: Profile?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: He called her five times in three days.
Steve McGarrett: How do you know that?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Because I dumped her phone.
Steve McGarrett: You dumped your kid's phone?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yes.
Steve McGarrett: And this stalker... Ten? Is he ten years old?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Ted Bundy was ten once.
Steve McGarrett: [Gives Danny a look] Yes, he was, Danny. Yes, he was.

Tony Archer: Listen. Whoa. Just listen.
[He and McGarrett are in a stand off on Tony's boat]
Tony Archer: I see no reason for one of us to get shot. We don't have to do this. What we should do is maybe, uh, put our little pea shooters down at the same time.
Steve McGarrett: Oh yeah? How's that done, huh?
Tony Archer: Uh. We'll count. One, two, three.
Steve McGarrett: Count of three, put our guns down. Huh?
Tony Archer: You got it.
Steve McGarrett: You want me to start?
Tony Archer: That would be nice.
Steve McGarrett: Alright. One.
[pause]
Tony Archer: You're doin' good. Keep goin'.
Steve McGarrett: Two. Three.
[They lower their guns. Steve holsters his, but Tony points his at Steve]
Tony Archer: Learned a big lesson, didn't ya, pal?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Cocks his gun and puts it against Tony's neck from behind] Think you learned a big lesson too, ol' man. Huh?

Steve McGarrett: [Tony has just brought out pizza flown in from New York] That's a... that's a good piece of pizza right there.
Tony Archer: No, no, no, no. See, where we come from we don't say piece. It's a slice. We call it a slice.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [waving his hand] No, don't say that.
[pointing to Steve]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Not domesticated. He's an animal.
[Tony chuckles]
Steve McGarrett: What do you mean, animal?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You were born an animal.
Steve McGarrett: I'm eating pizza here. You're callin' me an animal.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You'll be an animal the rest of your life.
Tony Archer: Hold it. Hold it. Hold it. Hold it!
Steve McGarrett: Huh?
Tony Archer: Lemme ask ya something. Do you two hens peck at each other like this all the time? All the time.
Steve McGarrett: Nahh...
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah. Absolutely.
Steve McGarrett: No. No. Well...

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Tony, do me a favour.
Tony Archer: Do you what favour?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: If you ever touch my hair again, I'm gonna shoot you, OK?
Tony Archer: Oh, did I touch it again?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You touched it a little bit.
Tony Archer: You have a funny thing with your hair, don't you?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Little bit.
Tony Archer: Well, I ain't got a lot of it.
[Points to his hair]
Tony Archer: You know what this is called? Ought to have been hair.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Ought to have been on...
Tony Archer: Ought to have been on a donkey's ass.
[laughs]
Steve McGarrett: I didn't want to say anything but, you know.
Tony Archer: Well, I'm glad you didn't.
Steve McGarrett: [Points to his hair] What do you call this?
Tony Archer: I call that shit.
Steve McGarrett: We don't need to talk about it.


"Hawaii Five-O: F.O.B. Honolulu: Part I (#3.18)" (1971)
Det. Steve McGarrett: [Dan is checking the body of Cpl. Kurtz] What does it look like, Danno?
Danny: Ugly... Marine corporal just returned from Vietnam, R and R... Still had his travel orders and his airplane ticket stub in his pocket.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to his staff] What was in that Buddha?

Misha the Bear: [to McGarrett upon arriving in Hawaii] Tell me, do you come down to the airport to greet all visitors to Hawaii?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Only some... But all colonels in the KGB.
Misha the Bear: Purely an honorary title.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [after the assault on Wo Fat's base of operations] Maybe they didn't cover all their tracks.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Commander Nicholson shows up unannounced] What are you doing here, Ron?
Ron Nicholson: Well, It looks like we're going to be working together again, Steve
Det. Steve McGarrett: On what?
Ron Nicholson: Well, I could tell you...
Det. Steve McGarrett: But you're not.
Ron Nicholson: Right... Somebody else is waiting to do that.

Steve McGarrett: [Reading a magazine cover] "Worship me?"
Kono Kalakaua: What is this? Life imitating art?
Steve McGarrett: Let me tell you something: Anybody who burns somebody alive and make them suffer the way he suffered. This was personal.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm going to talk to these models.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, well just stay with the questions that relate to the case.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What's that supposed to mean?
Steve McGarrett: That means I know you. Just stick to the case.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Hey. Hey. They're just women.
Chin Ho Kelly: Who happen to be insanely hot and make millions of dollars.

Steve McGarrett: Look Chin, listen this is gonna clear your name.
Chin Ho Kelly: Yeah, it will. But at what cost? My uncle was a righteous cop, Steve. In his 25 years, he put away hundreds of criminals. Guys that deserved to be off the streets. And if he's found guilty, they'll enact judicial review. All of his past convictions will be called into question. Guilty men will walk straight out of prison.
Steve McGarrett: Let me call the Governor.
Chin Ho Kelly: No. This is my problem. I'll handle it.

Steve McGarrett: Chin's been carrying this secret so long, he'd rather live with it than see his uncle go to prison.

Steve McGarrett: Okay, good. Let's go get one of Marcum's clients to give him up.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, I got the perfect guy. A real whale.
Steve McGarrett: Oh yeah? High stakes gambler?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, he's literally a whale.

Danny: No...
[McGarrett looks at Danny]
Danny: But I have a feeling You're gonna change all that.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Army, Navy, Marines... Take your pick.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Danny has a hangover] You know, you really didn't have to drink that booze, Danno.
Danny: What do you do with it?
Det. Steve McGarrett: You pour it into the plant.
Danny: Steve, do you really expect me to go around killing plants?
Det. Steve McGarrett: It's better than killing yourself.

Sgt. Simms: What's bugging you?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Death, Sergeant... Death always bugs me.

Det. Steve McGarrett: As you say, Sergeant... I'm gonna keep charging right up that hill.
Sgt. Simms: Hey McGarrett, to tell you the truth, I wouldn't have it any other way... When you get to the top, I'll be waiting for you.


"Hawaii Five-0: Ma'eme'e (#2.5)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: This is my point: What the perks for being a cop? Pay sucks. The hours suck. Sometime I get - no, no. Not sometimes - all the time. I get shot at all the time.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about? You never - you hardly ever get shot at?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Are you making a joke?
Steve McGarrett: When's the last time you got clipped?

Steve McGarrett: How'd it get this far, huh? Why didn't she come to us?
Chin Ho Kelly: I don't know what she's into. I don't know how deep she's in.
Steve McGarrett: I don't know if I can protect her anymore! You understand that?
Chin Ho Kelly: I know. I should have told you. I should've I'm sorry.

Capt. Vincent Fryer: No, she's mine.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about she's yours? This has nothing to do with IA.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: Wrong again. She's working for me.

Kono Kalakaua: Look, I don't like what he did. But I understand why he targetted me.
Chin Ho Kelly: You don't understand! Do you know who Frank Delano's partner was when he was on the job? Do you? It was Fryer!
[McGarret and Fryer enter]
Chin Ho Kelly: Delano almost took Fryer down with him when he lost his badge. Don't you get it? Fryer's using you. He's using you to get revenge.
Steve McGarrett: ...
[to Fryer]
Steve McGarrett: That's true? Delano was your partner?
[Fryer nods]
Steve McGarrett: You're going after your ex-partner?
Capt. Vincent Fryer: My history with Delano has nothing to do with this.
Steve McGarrett: This isn't about going after bad guys, okay? This is about getting even, right? You put Kono's life in danger to settle a personal score. Not just Kono's life, but an innocent civilan's who's still out there.

Steve McGarrett: Hey, Fryer.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: Yeah?
Steve McGarrett: Listen
[McGarret punches Fryer]
Steve McGarrett: Nobody messes with my team.
Capt. Vincent Fryer: Duly noted, Commander.

Elpidio Acuna: Just one question... You could have killed me before, why didn't you?... If I could have, I would have killed you... Why?... You always kill the enemy.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Just like that?

Det. Steve McGarrett: How did you get into Hawaii?
Elpidio Acuna: There are ways.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Acuna] I'm gonna close this island tight as a rock, and I'm gonna hunt down the people who came with you... You can bet on it!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Talking to Danny about Acuna] He's not an ordinary man, Danno... I wouldn't give him an inch.


"Hawaii Five-O: The Big Kahuna (#1.23)" (1969)
Det. Steve McGarrett: My father used to say, "It's easier for the generous to forgive, than for offense to ask it."

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Sam's niece has fallen to her death] Easy, Sam... It's all over.
Sam Kalakua: But Pele is not mortal... She cannot die!
Det. Steve McGarrett: But your niece is... And she has died.

Sam Kalakua: What happened last night was not a police matter!
Det. Steve McGarrett: You fired a gun, you were arrested... That's a police matter.
Sam Kalakua: A mans home is his castle... And this is mine in the most literal sense!

Danny: [about Sam] You know something?... They'll have to kill that old man to get him out of there.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I think they tried.

Eleanor Kalakua: [McGarrett won't swim or drink with Eleanor] No swim, no drink... there must be some reason you've come to see me.

[Colonel Farraday relents and tosses the rifle to McGarrett]
Colonel Farraday: [referring to his son, Jay] Get him off my land!
Det. Steve McGarrett: [referring to Colonel Farraday] Book him too, Danno. Kidnapping.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Danno? Have you ever met Colonel Farraday?
Dan Williams: Never had the pleasure.
Det. Steve McGarrett: He owns and operates one of the largest cattle ranches in the world, over 200,000 acres. It's an empire and he's often been accused of running it like an emperor. Don't let him intimidate anybody.
Dan Williams: Gotcha.

Jay Farraday: The Colonel's at the stallion barn. You can only get there by riding a horse, or you can walk... Walking is about five miles on that road. Riding's maybe three.
[Steve McGarrett takes off his tie and unbuttons the top button of his shirt]
Det. Steve McGarrett: I'll ride.

Colonel Farraday: And by what authority do you come on my land and ask me anything?
Det. Steve McGarrett: In case it missed your notice, your land is still part of the sovereign state of Hawaii whether you like it or not.
Colonel Farraday: In case it missed your notice, McGarrett, my land was here a long time before the state of Hawaii. It was a royal grant from King Kamehameha, dating back to 1810.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Thanks for the history lesson, Colonel, but my question is still unanswered.

Det. Steve McGarrett: You're a rich and powerful man, Colonel. But no one... no one is rich or powerful enough to take the law into his own hands.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [McGarrett opens a birthday gift] Yeah, just what I need... A Hawaiian dictionary.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to the doctor] I've been poked and jabbed and needled till my skin feels like a bulletin board.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve wants to leave the hospital] I have a job to do doctor, I have to find someone who is trying to kill me... And I don't intend to sit here waiting for him with a tin cup and dark glasses.

Det. Steve McGarrett: Could somebody call my office and tell them I want a car?
Edith Lavallo: There's a phone on the table by the bed... Why don't you do it yourself?
Det. Steve McGarrett: Thank you Florence Nightengale.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Steve is on the phone with Nurse Lavallo] Look, Lavallo... You,re really too much, you really are... May I at least ask your first name?

Ossie Connors: I guess this means we head back to paradise, huh?
Det. Steve McGarrett: That's where you're gonna be living, brother, for the next 199 years. If you can call it living.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Connors as he departs] Connors... I got a long arm, don't make me reach out for you.

Ossie Connors: You are still trying to tie me to that currency exchange robbery.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Yeah... And add two murders to that.
Ossie Connors: And you can't prove a thing, right?
Det. Steve McGarrett: No, not yet... But I'm gonna bust a gut trying.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [to Connors] You get a bigger charge out of giving us the needle than pulling a job.

Det. Steve McGarrett: [Questioning Chester] I need the truth.
Mama Grant: Chester wouldn't know the truth if it sat next to him in church on Sunday morning.


"Hawaii Five-0: Pahele (#2.11)" (2011)
Steve McGarrett: Book 'em, Danno.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You gonna start that again?

Steve McGarrett: This my fault, Joe.
Lieutenant Commander Joe White: No, my actions are my responsibility. So how about you treat me to a shrimp jumbalaya, and we'll call it square?
Steve McGarrett: Let me tell you something, okay? You're the only man on the planet who would see shrimp jambalya as a fair trade to the end of his career, you know that?

Governor Denning: What makes you think if you deliver they'll release the hostages?
Steve McGarrett: ...We don't.
Lori Weston: But right now, it's the only way we can buy enough time to find those kids.

Steve McGarrett: They did it. And they didn't just blow up the drugs. They blew up our evidence.
Lori Weston: Destroying evidence makes sense if we have a high value suspect in custody. But that bust we made on the docks, we didn't get anybody worth this much trouble.
Steve McGarrett: Or did we?

Jerry Ortega: [Lou let's Jerry out to check on drone] Go, go. Stop that plane. I got this.
Chin Ho Kelly: Jerry, check the transmission log. It'll tell us where the pilot's operating from.
Jerry Ortega: Copy, copy.
Chin Ho Kelly: One will suffice.
Jerry Ortega: Copy.

Steve McGarrett: It's taking off.
[Referring to the plane with the bad guys in it trying to escape]
Lou Grover: No way we're gonna stop that now.
Jerry Ortega: [Drone flies over Lou's and Danny's cars in pursuit of plane] Relax, partners, I got this.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Jerry, what are you doing?
Jerry Ortega: Feeling the force. Just like Skywalker on the trench run. Hang on.
[the drone explodes at the plane, forcing it to crash to a stop]
Jerry Ortega: Yeah!
Steve McGarrett: Son of a bitch. He really did it.

Lou Grover: [the Five-O team is accompanying McGarrett as he sits in a wheel chair being pushed by Danny, leaving the hospital after being shot] You know, you oughta look into whether they got some kind of a loyalty program. Like they'll give you a card, then every fifth bullet extraction is free. Heh heh.
Dr. Max Bergman: Well, I'm certain that such a program doesn't exist, Captain.
Chin Ho Kelly: I believe he was joking, Max.
Dr. Max Bergman: Ah. I can see how that was an attempt at humor.
Lou Grover: Oh, keep it up, wise guy. You might see an attempt at murder.
Kono Kalakaua: Lou, he wasn't being rude. He's just Max. And you'll learn that.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know, that reminds me, Max. It's been killing me all day. What did you tell your new protégé about me?
Dr. Max Bergman: I beg your pardon?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You said you gave her a head's up. Head's up about what? What did you say?
Dr. Max Bergman: Ah, yes. I just explained to Dr. Shaw that Commander McGarrett is the leader of Five-O and that you're his deeply cynical, misanthropic, short-tempered partner.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What?
Lou Grover: You know, I think I see what you mean about him.
Dr. Max Bergman: Now, Dr. Shaw agreed with my assessment. However, she did think you were cute.
Steve McGarrett: Hey!
[Lifts his right fist for a bump with Danny]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Aha! Well, she's got a point, right? I can live with that.
Kamekona: [Kamekona and Flippa come around the corner to present Steve with a shrimp meal and Get Well balloons] What? Brother, I thought you were shot!
Steve McGarrett: I was. In my thigh.
Flippa: Your thigh. That don't count.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: For you? No, for you, it would not.
Kamekona: I though you was down for the count. I brought you some garlic shrimp and some balloons.
[Pan to silver balloon that says, Get Bettah, and a yellow one with Kamekona's face on it]
Steve McGarrett: Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you. Maybe next time, they can hit a vital organ.
[Steve grabs the bag of food and balloon ribbons in consternation]
Kamekona: We be back.

"Hawaii Five-0: Ho'i Hou (#4.18)" (2014)
Steve McGarrett: [to Chin] I'd ask you how the reunion was going, but the body bag kind of gives it away.

Chin Ho Kelly: [Holding up an ace of spades card] How do you explain this?

[Disconnects the call and starts to walk away]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Whoa, whoa. Whoa, whoa, stop. Why are you not upset by this news?

Kono: Man, that would take a whole lot of imagination!

Det. Steve McGarrett: [briefing Tyloer Skaggs on the disappearance of Marth Finch] I can tell you this much... When somebody vanishes as completely as this for this amount of time... Either Martha Finch wanted to disappear, or she's dead.

Steve McGarrett: You know what? We should come and do one of these tactical simulations sometime. It's fantastic for team building.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No. No. No. Listen, working with you is harrowing enough, okay? I do not need you hunting me for sport.
Steve McGarrett: You're right. It wouldn't be much of a challenge.

Steve McGarrett: What?
Lou Grover: You weren't really born a crazy son-of-a-bitch. This is the guy that taught you.

Steve McGarrett: [after Joe drove the van into the harbor to neutralize the virus] Could you be any more dramatic?

Jerry Ortega: How many people we lookin' at?
Kono Kalakaua: Maybe a dozen. Possibly more.
Steve McGarrett: Right, and it'd need to be a place that has the resources to sustain a community like that for a long period of time.
Jerry Ortega: So, you're sayin' like if Amelia Earhart had come to Hawaii to fake her death instead of Howland Island.

Nick 'Valentine' Mercer: Something happened when I got that new heart. I began thinking of the people I was asked to kill. Their loved ones. Their families. What did they do to deserve me?
Steve McGarrett: Okay. Well, if your story's true, that can't have made Mr. Bagosa happy.

Kono Kalakaua: Good work, Jerry.
Jerry Ortega: Thanks, sistah.
Steve McGarrett: [Over the closed team radio] Jerry, we got movement.
Jerry Ortega: [to the team] One diversion, coming right up.
[Radio transmission for another lure]
Jerry Ortega: Hey, have you seen my pocket knife?
Steve McGarrett: [More voices from various rooms. Grover takes out his guy in a workroom. Chin takes out a guy in the kitchen. Danny ambushes a guy from a bathroom stall. Steve and his guy come busting out of a door fighting and Steve is getting pummeled on the grass] A little help here!

Albert Bagosa: Do you have any idea what you're doing, Valentine?
Nick 'Valentine' Mercer: Asking you politely to put down your gun. You know me better than anyone. I'll blow your damn head off right here.
Steve McGarrett: [Bagosa lowers his gun, Steve takes it out of his hand, and Valentine clicks his gun to show Bargosa that it was not loaded. Steve instructs Chin after cuffing his guy] Take him away.

Ahe Makino: This ain't the Shriners Club. Okay? We don't have business cards.
Steve McGarrett: You know what the Shriners Club is, but you've never seen Top Gun?

Steve McGarrett: [Kamekona asked them to wear his advertising T-shirts during the Tough Mudder] I can't. It absorbs water, slows me down.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: No, I... I would. I just don't want to.


"Hawaii Five-0: Ua Hopu (#2.22)" (2012)
Steve McGarrett: What'd you do to piss off the Yakuza, anyway?

Steve McGarrett: Sorry Danny that's classified

Steve McGarrett: No I'm not kidding
Danny Williams: Okay, uh well when are you bringing him back?
Steve McGarrett: I can't tell you that either Danny I can't tell you these things over an unsecured line you understand? It's a security issue
Danny Williams: Okay you know what I think? I think that you think, that saying stuff like that is cool. It's not cool it's actually the opposite of cool
Steve McGarrett: Danny...

[Looking at the remains of Frank's helicopter]
Steve McGarrett: What happened?
Frank Bama: Honey buzzards.

"Hawaii Five-0: Loa Aloha (#1.18)" (2011)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [about Matt] Well, be warned. Mr. Wallstreet has quite a personality.

Kono Kalakaua: Yeah, a lot of them. Found by a couple kids in a horror campout.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: A what?
Kono Kalakaua: It's an interactive adventure. People pay good money to spend the night outdoors while a bunch of actors in masks scare the hell out of them and chase them around.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know, a couple streets in Camden, you get the same experience free of charge.

Steve McGarrett: [after finding Max reviewing the file of his biological mother's murder] Max, uh... it's none of my business. So, forgive me, but that file that you're reading. You're not going to find your mother in there.

Steve McGarrett: She's in here.


"Hawaii Five-0: Ua ola loko i ke aloha (#6.12)" (2016)

Catherine Rollins: Then you're coming with me.

[Steve tackles a suspect, taking him over a bridge and landing in the canal]

"Hawaii Five-0: No ke ali'i wahine a me ka 'aina (#7.2)" (2016)
Harry Langford: Mr. Rabab, we have unfortunately run out of time. Which means your opportunity to engage in a civilized exchange is no longer on the table. And because I am bound to specific rules of conduct, our time is at an end... Unfortunately for you, those same rules do not apply to my friend from the United States.
Steve McGarrett: Last chance, Amir? Where's the hacker with the Greystone?
[McGarret sparks some cables]
Harry Langford: Cheers, then.
[Langford leaves]

Danny Williams: Revenge? This thing is all about revenge? I mean you're gonna walk into certain death, potentially give up the Greystone so you can settle the score with El Hamadi?
Steve McGarrett: Sorry, Harry. I can't let you do that. We have a kill or capture order on El Hamadi. He's a high value target to our government too... Which is why we're coming with you.


"Hawaii Five-0: Na Ki'i (#3.18)" (2013)
Steve McGarrett: I just thought you and Mick were going away this week.

Steve McGarrett: Look mom, about that, I'm sorry.
Doris McGarrett: What kind of son hires a PI to keep tabs on his mother?

Danny 'Danno' Williams: Wow. Okay, um, I'm not really getting anything from Crimson Bride, Dirty Damsel, Ivana Kiss, or any of the other ladies.

Steve McGarrett: Is there something I should know?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah, I like to wear dresses. What, you always go for the cheap shot?
Steve McGarrett: Well, subtlety doesn't work with you. A hammer is always best. I'm just hoping you got something with a nice plunging neckline so you can show off that Chewbacca chest.


"Hawaii Five-0: Waiwai (#6.17)" (2016)
Steve McGarrett: I, uh, need a minute with Oleg.
Danny Williams: That's fine with me.
[Steve enters Oleg's room. Danny to the security detail]

"Hawaii Five-0: Ho'oma'ike (#5.6)" (2014)

Lou Grover: Well, for starters, you're swinging like a gorilla.


"Hawaii Five-0: Hookman (#3.15)" (2013)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You know the difference between cover and concealment? One hides you from bullets, the other hides you from sight. Here I have both.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: You do? Because right now, you the Navy SEAL, you got neither.

Steve McGarrett: [gives Danny a disbelieving look] You realize that hurts me when you say that.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [softly] I- I didn't mean to hurt you. I'm sorry. I was literally just trying to be helpful. I mean, I know you can't get in touch with her anyway. She avoids you like crazy.
Steve McGarrett: Stop being helpful!


"Hawaii Five-0: Mohai (#3.5)" (2012)
Danny 'Danno' Williams: She ditched me.
Steve McGarrett: Please come in.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: My own daughter ditched me.
Steve McGarrett: Huh?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: It's Halloween, we're supposed to go trick or treating. She says "Dad, is it okay if I go with my friends instead." What am I supposed to do, huh? What am I supposed to do? Say "No, I command you to spend Halloween with your father?" It doesn't sound so bad, I should have said it.
Steve McGarrett: [Trying to get rid of Danny] Hey, want some candy?


"Hawaii Five-O: A Capitol Crime (#9.17)" (1977)
Mary Beth Rogers: Stay right where you are, Pops.

[Danny laughs]
Savannah Walker: Wait. Wait, wait. What's so funny?

"Hawaii Five-0: Lana I Ka Moana (#3.3)" (2012)

Steve McGarrett: Technically, it's a dinghy, but we're not sinking. Okay?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I stand corrected. We are stranded in a slowly leaking dinghy.
Steve McGarrett: We're not stranded.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Hey, Steve, I don't know if you've noticed but we're in the middle of the ocean. How... How is that not stranded?

Det. Steve McGarrett: It had to be Wo Fat. No other mind could have conceived of this.
Dan Williams: [into radio] All units, red alert.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Hold it, Danno. Knowing our old friend, he's gone. Maybe we should just settle for the safety of the minister and his grandson this time. But we'll get another crack at Wo Fat. Bet on it.


"Hawaii Five-O: McGarrett Is Missing (#8.2)" (1975)

Danny 'Danno' Williams: You don't wanna talk.
Foley: You're smarter than you look, mate.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Okay.
[Danny chuckles]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Here's the thing. You like orphaning little kids. I like shooting bad guys.
[Danny pulls out his weapon]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Everybody goes home happy, right?
[to Steve]
Danny 'Danno' Williams: You okay with this?
Steve McGarrett: 100%.


"Hawaii Five-O: The Flight of the Jewels (#12.15)" (1980)

"Hawaii Five-O: 30,000 Rooms and I Have the Key (#6.24)" (1974)

Det. Steve McGarrett: That's exactly what I think.


"Hawaii Five-0: Ka Haunaele (#6.20)" (2016)

Steve McGarrett: Yeah, that's right.
Danny Williams: "That's right?" What are - what are you nuts. This man that we are chasing is wearing an indestructible suit, and not even you big dumb head can penetrate.
Steve McGarrett: Right.
Danny Williams: You got a plan? You want to tell me the plan?
Steve McGarrett: Sure, as soon as I figure it out, you'll be the first to know.

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm gonna need a vest. Vest, please.
Steve McGarrett: You don't know what my plan is.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That is true, but I know you. And I know that any plan you have is going to involve me in potential serious bodily harm.
Steve McGarrett: What are you talking about?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I'm talking about this. Let's just say that over the years, our marriage has become predictable.

Lou Grover: You were right. That was the ATA
[American Thoroughbred Association]
Lou Grover: . Blood from Keone's, direct DNA match to Urban Myth.
Danny Williams: Uhuh. Okay, and that sample was taken a couple of days ago. That means that horse is on this island.
Kono Kalakaua: Keone must have come into contact with him, and then reached out to Harrison to let him know he found his missing horse.
Lou Grover: Harrison tells Keone to get a blood sample so that he can confirm.
Danny Williams: And then whoever has Urban Myth realizes that somebody's on to him and realizes he has to clip 'em both.
Lou Grover: We gotta figure out who's got that horse.
Kono Kalakaua: Okay. The thing I don't get is this. Why would you steal a racehorse and not ransom it? I mean, it's not like you can run it anywhere.
Danny Williams: No. But you could put it out to stud, and make a lot of money.
Chin Ho Kelly: [Chin and Steve are at Five-O headquarters at the computer table] Okay. So we checked, and there are only three stud farms on the entire island. But one of them, Nakata Ranch, was right on Keone's delivery route.
Kono Kalakaua: [Kono, Danny, and Lou on speaker phone at the hospital] That must be where he saw Urban Myth.
Danny Williams: Okay. What do we know about this place?
Chin Ho Kelly: Owner's name is Al Mokuau.
