"Hawaii Five-0: Ohana (#1.2)" (2010)
Jack McGarrett: [On a tape] When he was 5 years old, I asked my son Steve what he wanted to be when he grew up. He said "I want to be a cop, dad, like you." I told him to be anything but that. The life of a cop is - is not easy. It's not that I'm not proud of the work I did. But more than anything, I have - I have regrets. The toll it took on my family, the way it hurt them. It's uh, it's something I think about everyday. Now, uh, I'm alone here. Losing my wife was almost unbearable. Giving up my kids, that uh, that just broke me. I'm so proud of them, but they'd never know it. I've missed so much of their lives. Watching them growing up and all. I guess this is the way it has to be until I figure this out.

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!

Young Steve McGarrett: What kind of man are you? Breaking up our family.
Jack McGarrett: I"m the kind of man that can't walk away from a fight. My first responsibility is not my safety - it's yours. And you don't have to like it. I just hope someday you can understand that. Steve - you may not hear from me in a while. If anything happens, you can always trust your Uncle Joe.
