Steve McGarrett: What is it?
Danny Williams: My-my my Uncle Vito has agreed to bottle water-- bottle tap water for our restaurant.
Steve McGarrett: That's the stupidest thing you've ever said.

Steve McGarrett: You asked me to be your business partner. It's like a marriage. It's gotta be 50/50 if it's gonna work.
Danny Williams: What do you know about marriage? You been married?
Steve McGarrett: No, never been divorced either.

Danny Williams: You're like a sensitive flower.

Danny Williams: You heard from Kono?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, I have. Yeah, I spoke to her a couple days ago. Seems like, every time she locks up a perp, they get new Intel that leads to another arrest. She's even brought in Chin's San Fran task force to handle the West Coast operations. What?
Danny Williams: No, it's just weird. I mean, I miss those guys, you know?
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, me too. Look who's a sensitive little flower now.

Danny Williams: Shoot a dog, you're going to hell. Period.

Roger Niles: I had a partner once. It lasted all of 18 months.
Lou Grover: What happened to him?
Roger Niles: Heart attack. He was 42.
Lou Grover: How old are you?
Steve McGarrett: 41!

(Breaking plates looking for drugs)
Danny Williams: Should've called my ex-wife. She loves to break stuff. Coffee mugs, ashtrays, all kinds of stuff.

Danny Williams: I want every last one opened up and examined. Okay.
Worker: Does that mean you're gonna break more of my stuff?
Danny Williams: Odds are pretty good, yeah.

Jerry Ortega: We just made the biggest drug bust in Hawaiian history.

Tani Rey: Look who's a dog person now.
Lou Grover: No. I'm a "this dog" person.
