Did You Know?


Sam tells G that the Five-0 guys are not The Skipper and Gilligan. Gilligans Island was filmed in Hawaii and it also set sail from Hawaii. See more »


When Hetty prepared to give Deeks, Chin Ho Kelly, and Danny Williams the smallpox vaccine, she prepare to give it as a standard injection. The smallpox vaccine is given as a series of skin pricks using bifurcated (two-pronged) needle that is dipped into the vaccine solution. This is the vaccine that is responsible for that small round scar on the upper arm of most Americans born before 1972 (when the US stopped routine vaccinations). It also takes several days before one develops a skin reaction so Deeks' pain isn't accurate either. See more »


Marty Deeks: [appealing his case to his colleagues] I just want you to stop and think what this place would be like without me.
Henrietta 'Hetty' Lange: [grins] Let me see. Peaceful, professional, sanitary... .. feel free to stop me at any time, Mr Deeks.
