    This summary of this episode suprised me as I didn\'t realize it was the first episode. All the characters (event the bad guys) are in character from the beginning to the end of the series. This goes a long ways to show the value of putting time and thought into a show\'s bible.



    Most shocking was seeing Tim O\'Kelly playing the role of Danny Williams. While Tim O\'Kelly looks like a young Robert Kennedy (who was popular at the time), I\'m more comfortable with Danny Williams in the number two role.

    • (Governor sees McGarrett in dirty work clothes)
      Governor: What's the get-up for?
      McGarrett: Well, sir...

    • Rosemary: Well, what shall we drink to, Steven?

      Rosemary: To cops.
      McGarrett: To hippies.
      Rosemary: Peace?

    • Chin: I don't like it. One stray shot on that deck and "Pow" -- 250,000 barrels of diesel. All of Honolulu harbor could go up.

      Chin: Uh-huh. I sure do.

  • NOTES (5)

    • The Wo Fat Chop Sui Restaurant in downtown Honolulu provided series creator Leonard Freeman the inspiration for the name of McGarrett's archenemy Wo Fat. It is the oldest restaurant on Oahu.

    • Tim O'Kelly was mistakenly credited as Tim O'Kelley in the closing credits.

    • This story originally aired as a 2-hour television movie under the name of "Hawaii Five-O-Cocoon" on September 20, 1968, six days before the first regular episode was broadcast. According to the 2007 DVD set, this was an unusual practice at the time.

      "Cocoon" was later re-edited and split into two one-hour episodes. Part 1 aired on June 4, 1969. Part 2 aired on June 11, 1969.

    • The official syndication number for this episode is 6825.

    • The closing credits end with the Hawaiian word "Pau," which is accompanied by its English interpretation -- "The End."
