Storyline

A reclusive, Howard Hughes-type billionaire is implicated in the murder of one of his associates. The businessman abducts McGarrett, who was on his way to the scene of the murder. The businessman is afraid of germs and has elaborate decontamination procedures on his yacht. The businessman tells McGarrett that he is innocent and being framed. The businessman wants to sell off his various companies to concentrate on developing a "steam car" that will run on natural gas and have few emissions. The business associates opposed the move and the leading opponent is the one who has turned up dead. McGarrett doesn't trust the billionaire but Five-O's investigation also turns up evidence that the killing was not as simple as it appeared. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

The billionaire Morgan Hilliard is meant to remind the viewer of Howard Hughes, who was also reclusive and afraid of germs. In this story he battles his partners about building a steam powered car. Early in his career Hughes also tried to build a steam powered car. It so happens that Ed Flanders had also played Hughes' right hand man in the TV biopic The Amazing Howard Hughes. See more »

Goofs

McGarrett's suits changed inconsistently. In this story he wears only two suits, a tan one and his customary blue one. Every time he's at the Hilliard estate he's wearing the tan suit making it look like he inexplicably changes from his blue suit just to go to the estate. It's likely that all of the scenes at the estate were filmed at one time without McGarrett changing his clothes to maintain the continuity of the blue suit he wore in his office. See more »
