Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In the first courtroom scene, the attorney general (Morgan White) mistakenly refers to Tokura as Tokuru.

    • The license plate number on McGarrett's car is F6-3958.

    • McGarrett and Chin Ho use the word "bushido" incorrectly in this episode. According to the American Heritage Dictionary, the word is a noun meaning "The traditional code of the Japanese samurai, stressing honor, self-discipline, bravery, and simple living." McGarrett refers to individual modern-day samurai as bushido, when the word should only be used to refer to the code that the samurai follow.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Tokura: If you have pressing affairs elsewhere, Mr. McGarrett, we will quite understand.
      McGarrett: As a matter of fact, I have. I'm about to order a medal -- for the next bushido who comes to chop you down.
