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.

3.8 is ***1/2 -But No More Monkey Business, Please
13 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this was a very good episode, must Danno constantly keep referring to his daughter as monkey. She isn't one and this can be construed to be a racial statement by many. While his daughter isn't the prettiest of young ladies, this reference is definitely derogatory even though Danno doesn't mean it to be.

That being said, Danno relives his experience with the N.J. police department on that fateful day of September 11, 2011. Terrence Howard guest stars as a vicious dealer who corners Danny and his female partner and tragic consequences following.

All this is related in the squad car and while Danny is trying to be free as he has accidentally set a bomb to go off. Seems that terrorists have planted it while the Secretary of Defense is speaking at a Hawaiian event. The moments are tense and McGarrett and Danny show their friendship.
