Steve McGarrett: You hungry?
Adam Noshimuri: I don't know. Coach served a bag of these miniature pretzels. I think I had six of them.
Steve McGarrett: Good. I'm starving, too.

Adam Noshimuri: You don't cut her any slack, do you?
Steve McGarrett: Hell no. Doris? No. Danny sometimes; Doris never. We're not talking about my mother.

Adam Noshimuri: I-I'm telling you, trust me on this-- forget about the brick and mortar. Get yourself a food truck. If it doesn't work out, you can always drive it off a cliff and collect on the insurance.

Adam Noshimuri: How is Danny anyway?
Steve McGarrett: He's all right. He's cranky. He's the crankiest person I ever met.
Adam Noshimuri: Yeah, that sounds about right. Hey, did I hear you got a dog?
Steve McGarrett: I got a dog! His name's Eddie. He's unbelievable.
Adam Noshimuri: I thought you were a cat person?
Steve McGarrett: I was but, I don't know, he did something to me. I think he did a Jedi mind-trick on me.

Steve McGarrett: Where'd you get that gun?
Junior Reigns: Uh, your gun safe under your seat.
Steve McGarrett: It was locked.
Junior Reigns: Yeah, it was.

Adam Noshimuri: You got an extra gun?
Steve McGarrett: That's for protection only. You guys pull those triggers only if somebody else is shooting at you. Otherwise, they're paperweights.

Junior Reigns: Wait, hang on. I'm still stuck on ten million. I mean, I mean who deposits that kind of paper?
Adam Noshimuri: Organized crime.
Tani Rey: You talking from experience?
Adam Noshimuri: Yeah.
Jerry Ortega: His dad was, like, the OG of OGs.
Junior Reigns: Yakuza?
Adam Noshimuri: Yeah.
Junior Reigns: That's badass, man.

Lou Grover: Well, as my grandfather used to say...Bye!

Steve McGarrett: Hey, listen, um I know it's not the first time, but I really appreciated you having my back today. Thank you.
Adam Noshimuri: That's what ohana is for, right?

(Bloodies white dress shits)
Steve McGarrett: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Well, you're just, you're not taking these?
Adam Noshimuri: They're all yours.
Steve McGarrett: Don't think I won't wash the blood out and wear them out to a nice dinner.
