  • Interesting case, pretty scenery as always, and...

    ...finally, an episode Grace Park can sink her teeth into, and her "Kono" can sink her killer round-house kick into. I liked how she took down that biker, winning the battle, only to lose the war. Well, with the biker anyway.

    Nice scene at Waimea at the end, though definitely not in surf season! And that sounded like Iz singing in the background. :o}

    I think I had an inkling that somehow Carlton Bass would be involved. Ben was too obvious a choice to actually be the baddie, though who would have thought it would come down to who owned the right DNA?!

    However, am I imagining it or was the whole thing a little slower than usual? A little less intense? Well, other than the almost total destruction of that Mustang, that is...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • A lot of Hawaiian surfer lingo is used in this episode: "brah" is a friend or buddy, "eating it" means to fall off one's surfboard (wipe-out), "dakine" means good or the best, "aggro" describes a person who is aggressive in the water and "howzit" is short for "How's it going?".

    • Goof: When Ian's assistant shows Coral Prince's recent expenditures to Chin Ho, he asks her who the Gillis Brothers are. However, there's nothing on screen that gives any indication who payments were made to, just check numbers, amounts, and a basic category. It's not until several seconds later that the assistant then brings up further details of a specific payment, at which point the Gillis Brothers name is actually revealed.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Danny: I don't have anything against surfing. I'm against sharks, skin cancer and anything involving my daughter with bikinis.

    • (A surfer dude walks up to Danny, looking quizzically at his clothing.)
      Surfer: Oh, brah, where'd you eat it?
      Danny: I'm sorry, what? Excuse me?
      Surfer: The kine, brah.
      Danny: I'm sorry. Are you speaking English?
      Surfer: Hey, no need for get agro.
      Steve: He caught it on land, brah. Danno don't surf.
      (Surfer dude looks disgusted and walks away.)
      Surfer: Shoots.
      Danny: I dare you to tell me what he just said. I'm done.

    • (Danny is pouring sand out of his shoe)
      Chin: Next time, try flip flops brah.
      Danny: I'm going to pretend you didn't say that.

    • Danny: (to Kono) The boss told you to beat it. Look, I really don't want to see that face he makes when we don't do what he tells us to do. I call it his constipated look.

    • Danny: Can I just ask you what were doing here?
      Steve: I swear to God, Danny, you ask me that again, I'm going to shoot you.
      Danny: Then shoot me, seriously, just shoot me. Because I'm not taking another step until you explain it to me again.
      Steve: I've explained it three times.
      Danny: Which is an indication of how ridiculous this detour is.

    • Steve: On this island, there is an easy way to do things and a hard way. With the Kapu, talking to Ka Wika before we go after Levi and Diego is the easy way.
      Danny: Ah. So, what's throwing somebody in a shark tank and hanging another guy off a roof?
      Steve: (Thinks about it) Those guys were from out of town.
      Danny: You're a sick person, you know that, right.

    • Danny: You're a sick person, you know that?
      Steve: In the best possible way though, right?
      Danny: No, no ,no not in the best possible way. In every terrible way.

    • Danny: There it is again, the H-word. You know it's Detective Williams or Danny
      Ka Wika: I've got other words but they all mean, "Don't tell me what to do on my island".

    • Diego: We're not scared of you.
      Danny: Now, how do you think that makes me feel? Here I am, a duly sworn officer of the law and you are showing me zero respect. I mean, it's hurtful. Really. (Truck pulls up)
      Levi: Who's that?
      Steve: That, that is someone you are scared of.

    • (Chasing suspects through backroads)
      Danny: Okay, I have a daughter.
      Steve: Trust me, I know these roads.
      Danny: This is not a road, roads have asphault and two lanes. This is dirt on a cliff and it's a long way down!
      Steve: Scared?
      Danny: I'm not scared, I'm rationally concerned.

    • Steve: When I say 'Book 'em, Danno', it's a term of endearment.
      Danny: In that case, do it every day. I like it.
