Quotes Edit

Dr. Shaw: Eddie, you want a treat?
Danny Williams: Doc, what? He didn't get a treat? He wasn't a good boy? Did he pee on the floor? He bite you? What'd he do?

Danny Williams: What, uh what did he say?
Steve McGarrett: He said I should take up golf to reduce stress.
Danny Williams: Oh, yes, that-that that would work, for sure.
Steve McGarrett: The idea of beating you with a five iron sounds pretty relaxing.

Steve McGarrett: Tommy Boyle.
Danny Williams: That's a wise guy from Boston, moved out here a couple years ago. He's a big-shot guy, right?
Steve McGarrett: Danny, if it's the same Tommy Boyle, we got trouble.
Danny Williams: Why?
Steve McGarrett: Danny, you get the exact same HPD daily briefs each morning that I do, do you not?
Danny Williams: I do, uh, but I also feed, uh, two children and take them to school. Plus, I don't like to read

Danny Williams: Have you ever heard the expression, “As welcome as a cop at an Irish mobster's wake”?
Steve McGarrett: No, That's not an expression. You just made that up.
Danny Williams: I did just make it up.

Jin Leung: You appear to be an intelligent young man.
Danny Williams: Thanks.
Jin Leung: But when you open your mouth, the effect disappears.

Jin Leung: Your father, I knew, so you may stay. You may sit down.
Danny Williams: Thank you.
Jin Leung: Not you. You go to the back row and be quiet.
Danny Williams: Okay.

Steve McGarrett: If it's any consolation, I'd rather it was me who was gonna take this beating, all right, but he chose you.
Danny Williams: I'm sorry. Did you say ‘beating’? I'm not taking a beating.
Steve McGarrett: Hey, stop talking. You're embarrassing me now.
I'm embarrassing you?

Steve McGarrett: Come on, let's go. Let's go.
Danny Williams: Don't touch me ever.

Lou Grover: What'd you do, take the scenic route or something?
LDanny Williams: long story short-- this idiot made me get into a kung fu fight with another idiot.
Tani Rey: Ugh, I want to come with you guys next time. You have more fun.

Tani Rey: That's not what she wanted. She wanted you to live.
