    They tried some but still to little.

    Again he calls girl us navy ship how direct can do what he wants, ok bad security and so in America but not that bad.

    The guy with the cane that he sometime have in his left hand and some times in his right hand, with leg is it you have a problem with and they are 5 working there with is not likely and they have what 100 different cars, they change car every scene.

    There is no one that answers the phones no one that help them look for this or that and the corner Mr Hero that plays piano and that way solves crime.moreless
  • A young woman is found dead in Wakiki Bay. The governor calls in McGarrett and his team because the girl was the daughter of the US Ambassador to the Phillipines. To make matters worse, the deceased's sister is missing.moreless

    There may be some hope for "Hawaii Five-O." This episode is the best of the season up to this point. It has a very well written storyline that has a number of clever twists and turns. You think you know where things are going until yet another curve is thrown at you. That helped me enjoy this episode even more. The episode still suffers from the problem of cliche but to a much lesser degree than the ones before it. The odd doctor is one such cliche. McGarret's sister is also. Despite that this episode manages to deliver. Strong episode.moreless
  • I knew I wasn't going to like the sister!

    But apart from that it was a pretty good story this week.



    I like the angle, even if the tie to the Governor was pretty lame. I'd like to see more of a role, more involvement for Jean Smart's character. But I'll take this start.



    I have been on that lame submarine ride and my tour of the rejuvenating reefs off Waikiki were not this eventful I can assure you. The choice of places to dump the body was not well thought out by the culprits...or perhaps it was. Creepy.



    Not as creepy as the creep in the nightclub. I loved that they made him drink the bomb, and I love the loud interrogation! That whole idea of drugging girls at bars is a nightmare, having daughters myself. I love that they beat the "specialists" at their own specialty, and I love that they found a window of opportunity to at least temporarily close that loophole of sanctioned obstruction.



    Yep. Five-0 seems infallible, just as in the old days. Little sister is going to get hers, and deserve it. And McGarrett's love life?: you know, he can do better...moreless

    • Goof: Danny has a bad left leg and throughout the episode he is using the walking stick with his left hand. But in the last scene where he escorts Ellison away he is using his right hand.

    • Goof: The bedroom scene with McGarrett and Catherine opens with McGarrett hitting the alarm clock and knocking it over when the alarm sounds. Minutes later, in a wider shot, the clock is upright again on the bedside table.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Danny: Do you have a black light?
      Dr. Max Bergman: Oh, it's called an ALS wand and I don't like people touching my equipment.
      Danny: Can I just have the wand, please?
      Dr. Max Bergman: Fine! (Gives him the wand)

    • Danny: There's something different about you today. You, uh, you get a new haircut?
      Steve: No.
      Danny: New cargo pants? (Steve smiles)What was that?
      Steve: What?
      Danny: I believe you just smiled. You-you almost appear to be happy.

    • (Steve arresting Ellison for obstructing a criminal investigation)
      Steve: It's gonna take your firm at least 24 hours to get a lawyer out here from Los Angeles. I'm gonna make sure you spent that time in jail. Book him, Danno.
      Danny: You know, I gotta be honest; I actually didn't even mind that one.
      Steve: Really?
      Danny: Yup.

    • Danny: (To a young woman) Put the drink down, it's time for you to go to the bathroom.
      Jordan: Dude, who do you think you are? Huh?
      Steve: What's that? Who do I think I am? (Steve moves his shirt to reveal his badge and weapon.)I think I might be a guy who just saw another guy put something into a lady's drink.
      Jordan:I don't know what you're talking about.
      Danny: You don't?
      Jordan: I didn't put anything in her drink.
      Danny: You didn't put anything….. Then drink it.
      Jordan: What?
      Danny: Drink it. Drink that drink or I'm gonna bust your teeth and pour it down your throat.
      Steve: I would drink it.

    • (At the Zephyr Lounge, looking for a suspect)
      Danny: Looks like this place got eyes on you.
      Steve: Would you focus please? Just-just once, focus?
      Danny: Okay. Wait a minute, let me ask you a question.
      Steve: Go ahead.
      Danny: Two very attractive ladies are eye-humping you, respectfully, and what? Nothing? Nothing? I mean, should I check for a pulse? You alive? Hello?

    • Steve: The Zephyr Lounge, it's a nightclub, just sent us a link to remotely access their closed circuit feeds.
      Danny: That's really good… Impressive… Did you learn that in SEAL school?
      Steve: Yes, it's called using the internet. People have been doing it since the early '90s. You may have heard of it.
      Danny: I wouldn't know, I was still playing Ms. Pac-man.
      Steve: Oh yeah?
      Danny: Yeah.
      Steve: Ever make it to the double pretzel level?
      Danny: Triple banana, bitch.
