Dan (Danno) Williams, while off-duty, pursues a gun-wielding crime suspect to the man's apartment. While shooting open the lock, Danno believes he inadvertently wounds the suspect fatally. While attending to the man, the wounded suspect's girlfriend takes a gun the suspect had fired at Danny, and flees the apartment. Danno is soon indicted and jailed. McGarrett races to find the woman and exonerate Danno. It is later discovered that she is connected to Big Chicken, a narcotics dealer in Honolulu. Written by

"Ain't No Big Thing" was almost an unofficial second theme song for the first season. It was written by Kui Lee and recorded by many performers, including Don Ho, the Brothers Cazimero and Kawika Crowley. McGarrett alludes to the song in "....And They Painted Daisies On His Coffin" (#1.5) when he tells Big Chicken, "Ain't no big thing, brother." In "No Blue Skies" (#1.8), Joey sings the optimistic chorus. In "The Box" (#1.16) Big Chicken sings it in the shower. In "Tiger by the Tail" (#1.3) Bobby George sings it during his nightclub act.
