Quotes Edit

Steve McGarrett: All I'm asking is for you to cut through a little red tape and let us see that video as a professional courtesy.
Agent Callahan: Look, don't take this the wrong way, Commander, Detective, but unless a crime has been committed, we're the sole investigators on this case. That means that we don't have to share anything with anyone. Especially if you're gonna come in here and question my team's work. But I would be more than happy to keep you guys in the loop from here on out. As a professional courtesy.

Danny Williams: Pre-radioactive Steve would have punched that guy right in the mouth. Proud of you.
Steve McGarrett: Oh, you think I didn't want to punch him in the mouth? Let me tell you something, this guy making a call like that without a crucial piece of evidence, one of two things-- either he's a complete idiot, or he's hiding something.

Steve McGarrett: You okay?
Tani Rey: Yeah.
Steve McGarrett: You know, they say every murder has two victims. The deceased and the family they leave in the wake. It's good to care, Tani.

Tani Rey: I Can see why you two were friends.

Steve McGarrett: That was almost unpleasant.
Danny Williams: That was definitely almost unpleasant!

Steve McGarrett: Wait a minute. Were you worried about me, Danny?
Danny Williams: Just put the plane on the ground, please, maniac.
Steve McGarrett: Hey, I'm sorry. Did you just call me a Maverick? 'Cause if you did, that's, like, the greatest compliment you've ever given me. Thank you. I love you.
Danny Williams: Land the plane, you idiot.

Steve McGarrett: Permission to buzz the tower...

Steve McGarrett: Dead last? Dead last? Dead last.
Danny Williams: Yeah, dead last. It's better than dead period, right? You know what? These guys, these flyboys, they do this for a living. You thought you were gonna I mean, you're you, and they're them.

Jerry Ortega: Conspira-Soar. What do you think? Catchy.
Junior Reigns: You like dinosaurs?
Jerry Ortega: No, it's not a dinosaur name.

Steve McGarrett: I feel the need, the need for Steve.
Jerry Ortega: You heard about that?
Junior Reigns: Everyone heard about that.
Tani Rey: That's okay. Boss man's your hero.
