McGarrett, desperate to convict medical quack C.L. Fremont, seeks evidence where she can be prosecuted for a more serious charge. Facing extremely long odds, he convinces the family of a former Fremont patient to have the body exhumed. However, the casket wasn't airtight. McGarrett and Zipser, an attorney for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, instead manage to trip up Fremont in court. The maneuver causes McGarrett's sister to realize her brother had been right all along. Written by Bill Koenig

Again, one of the best episodes of any TV series of this era
29 June 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Indeed, we do have lots of quacks out there even today, perhaps more than back then. Today, this woman could send people the self-test kit where they could FedEx the blood sample back, then they log on for online treatments while she bleeds their bank accounts. Hey, that's an idea for the new series remake!

The previous reviewer points out that we do not see whether the woman is convicted of the fraud charge. I would be inclined that she would be but since she had no prior record and since some followers would keep paying her lawyers, she would get off without any time while she appealed over years.

As for McGarrett kissing the records clerk after her assistance, that was then and this is now. Since when did anybody talk sexual harassment c. 1969?
