    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When McGarrett walks down a hallway to get to his office he passes a sign that states "Hawaii Five-0 Temporary Offices."  The words Hawaii Five-0 are written in the same font as the series with white letters and red outline.  The sign may actually have been made to show the location of the series offices (which were temporary as well) rather than the fictional Five-0 offices.

      • In this story, the offices of Five-O move from the Iolani Palace to the old Hawaii Territorial Building. The move and the scaffolding around the Palace are seen early in the episode. There are also short sequences in the partly unpacked new offices.

    • NOTES (4)

      • The official syndication number for this episode is 7601-1.

      • The opening teaser returns in this season and the rest of the series, but this time it shows short tidbits of the episode before the main opening credits.

      • With this episode, Herman Wedemeyer (as Duke Lukela) is added to the opening credits. Though he was a series regular in Season 8, he was still billed as a guest star.

        In the Season 4 episode "... And I Want Some Candy And A Gun That Shoots", Herman Wedemeyer played an HPD officer named Duke Kanaha, the first time he appeared as a character named "Duke." In a later Season 4 episode ("While You're At It, Bring In The Moon"), he played a character named "Duke."

        Beginning with the first episode of Season 5 ("Death Is A Company Policy"), he would play the character of Edward D. "Duke" Lukela, a recurring character in Seasons 5 through 8. Wedemeyer became one of the main cast members for Seasons 9 through 12. Duke Lukela was an HPD officer who rises up through the ranks to become a detective with the Five-O unit.
