Sen. Oishi: You have many friends and, uh, many enemies.
McGarrett: My old man used to say the way to avoid criticism is to say nothing, to do nothing, and to be nothing.
McGarrett: Finney paid his debt in prison. When does a man stop paying for his past?
Senator John Oishi: That's a difficult question.
McGarrett: Is it? Seems to me the Constitution guarantees a citizen freedom from harassment.
Senator John Oishi: In 1941, I was also imprisoned. Interned by the government as an enemy alien. I was a "Jap" for five years. An "Oriental" for another ten. Now I'm an American. But it was a long time before people stopped looking at me as if I were the enemy.... This will not happen again, Steve.
