The H50 team investigate when a man on vacation with his family is gunned down in his hotel room by a mysterious figure, only to discover that the victim wasn't who he appeared to be. Kono and Chin later go undercover to retrieve some stolen paintings but the operation later becomes a hostage situation. Meanwhile, Kamekona trains with an Iron Chef, Masaharu Morimoto.
- When giving a rundown of the suspects and their positions McGarrett says "We've got six threats all armed with Steyr machine pistols...". Janssen is armed with a 9mm pistol and at least two other of the robbers are armed with Mini-Uzi submachine guns. An experienced SEAL/cop like McGarrett would have known the difference.
(Kamekona is outside the shrimp truck, aggressively trying to get to Flippa but being held back by 2 people)
(Flippa is in the shrimp truck using a small frying pan to defend himself)
KameKona: (pissed off) O - Kill you! Why you did that?
Flippa: (apologetic) I'm sorry!
KameKona: What makes you the boss?!
Flippa: I love you! I'm sorry! I l..
Flippa: I love you!
(Steve shows up in his truck and goes to see what is going on)
Flippa: I'm sorry!
KameKona: You son of a gun.
Steve McGarrett: Hey, hey, hey! What the hell's going on here?
Flippa: Thank God you're here. You got to talk some sense into him.
Steve McGarrett: What are you doing?
KameKona: Flippa decided to enter us into Shrimpapalooza.
Steve McGarrett: Is that.. Is that a real thing?
Flippa: Oh-oh, it's legit. It's this shrimp cook-off that was started by one of the food blogs. We win that, our Yelp rating will explode.
Steve McGarrett: Well, that's great. It sounds like it would be great for business, no?
KameKona: Yeah, except the part he forgot to mention. We're competing against Choy.
Steve McGarrett: Sam Choy? The Sam Choy, celebrity chef?
KameKona: And godfather of Hawaiian cuisine.
(Steve gets the Ohh - Dang" face)
KameKona: And when we lose to him, it's gonna kill our rep and my business.
Steve McGarrett: Listen to me, you're losing to a local culinary legend, there's no shame in that.
KameKona: Bruddah, read the sign. No one's gonna eat second best shrimp. (angry) Ugh, I'm gonna kill you.
Steve McGarrett: Is that gonna solve.. gonna solve anything? Huh?
KameKona: It won't. But it gonna feel real good.
Steve McGarrett: Listen, I might know somebody who can help. But do you think you can refrain from murdering Flippa while I make a call?
KameKona: Yeah. Can I mess him up just a little bit?
(Steve and Flippa look at each other)
Steve McGarrett: No.
Kono Kalakaua: Okay, what about security cameras?
Duke Lukela: Got my best guy poring through the footage as we speak.
Kono Kalakaua: Great.
(scene shifts to the hotel security office)
(Kono walks in)
Kono Kalakaua: Officer Kai, back in the saddle.
(view Pua reviewing the security camera feed on the video screens)
Pua Kai: I told Gene here I used to work this gig over at the Marriott. He was kind enough to let me take the wheel.
Kono Kalakaua: Well, you still got the touch, I see.
Pua Kai: Indeed, I do. But, full disclosure, your window of opportunity has finally closed. I've.. been in an exclusive relationship for three weeks.
Kono Kalakaua: Really? Hmm, well, who's the lucky girl?
Pua Kai: Her name is Brenda. Met her at a karaoke bar. My rendition of "Love Is a Battlefield" closed the deal.
Kono Kalakaua: Bold choice. I'm sure you hit those high notes.
Steve McGarrett: I got to rain-check today, chef. But, uh, I was kind of hoping you could do my friend Kamekona a favor.
KameKona: Right, well, you see, chef, I'm competing in a shrimp cook-off and the competition is mad intense. I'm gonna really have to bring it to have a chance. So we figured, who better to help me step up my game than an actual Iron Chef.
Masaharu Morimoto: Oh, you want me to teach you how to cook?
KameKona: No. I want you to teach me how to win. Be my sensei. Like Mr. Myagi in Karate Kid. The movie? Ralph Macchio?
Masaharu Morimoto: Yes, Pat Morita. (making the arm movements) Wax on. Wax off.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah, "paint the fence," yeah.
- Scott Caan (Danny Williams) and Masi Oka (Max Bergman) were both credited, but does not appear.
- Chin Ho Kelly's undercover name was Mr. Park and Kono Kalakaua's under cover name was Miss Kim, a reference to each other's real names, Grace Park and Daniel Dae Kim.
- Willie Garson, who played Gerard Hirsch, is well known for playing Mozzie in the show White Collar. White Collar is a show about an art thief/con artist who makes a deal with the FBI to help them catch other white collar criminals in exchange for his freedom.
