    • Steve: What's your problem? You don't like guns? You got one on your hip.
      Danny: This is a necessity of the job, okay, but I do not love guns the way you love guns.
      Norm: If purchased legally and used responsibly, they're a civilian's best friend.
      Danny: I thought that was a dog.
      Norm: They're better than dogs. You get the physical protection, you don't have walk it, don't have to feed it.

    • Danny: You know the difference between cover and concealment? One hides you from bullets, the other hides you from sight. Here I have both.
      Steve: Yes, I know the difference between cover and concealment.
      Danny: You do? Because right now, you the Navy SEAL, you got neither.

    • Steve: Hey, McKinney, you come out or we're coming in.
      McKinney: The door's wide open, cop! (starts the shootig)
      Danny: What are you doing?
      Steve: What am I doing? I'm going to smoke him out.
      Danny: Okay, Steve, stop. Okay? SWAT is on their way, right now. Can we, please, please give them the professional courtesy that they deserve and let them do their job?
      Steve: You done?
      Danny: I'm done, why?

    Trivia (2)

    • This episode is a remake of Hookman, the sixth-season premiere of the original Hawaii Five-O (first broadcast September 11, 1973). In tribute, the episode's title and guest stars are featured in the same yellow typeface as the original series. This also makes it the first episode of the new series to display the episode title, and the first episode to have a non-Hawaiian language title.

    • Goof: When McKinney shows up to meet Stoner to buy the gun, he starts out by asking him, "Are you a cop?". He then says that it's the law that Stoner must tell him if he asks if he is a cop. This is an age old myth in TV cop shows. There never has been any such law. If there was, it would be impossible for the police to ever do undercover work.

      Anyone any idea what the song at the start of the episode is called?

      Nine Inch Nails Everyday Is Exactly The Same

    • IrisGray Feb 05, 2013

      It's a remake. Total remake, same setup and everything, except that Kono wasn't in the original.

    • KatelynSligar Feb 05, 2013

      It was meant to be a full remake of the original episode...are you saying that it was a good episode (they did well at remaking it) or that you didn't like it because it was a total remake?

    • TheOutcaste Jan 30, 2013

      Wonder if this is a remake of the original series Season 6 opener (also titled Hookman, airs at noon Feb 4th on Me-TV), or a continuation, 30 years later, get revenge on McGarrett's son. I beleive this is the first episode to have an English title instead of Hawaiian.

    • KatelynSligar Feb 05, 2013

      I heard that it was a remake not a continuation like the episodes that had Ed Asner in them. This was meant to pretty much copy exactly the original episode :)

    • SarahMohammed2 Feb 03, 2013

      It is the first episode to have an english title..... i guess there is no Hawaiian for Hookman

    • Indru_mai Feb 10, 2013

      It has an english title BECAUSE it's a remake. It pays tribute to the original.

    • crimegirl12 Jan 25, 2013

      I was looking at the description of this episode and it says steve's father at the endd of it. Steve's father is dead.

    • Lizzie01 Jan 30, 2013

      He is taking it out on Steve not his father. I had to read it twice too.

    • crimegirl12 Jan 30, 2013

      Thank you for clearing that up. It just confused me.
