Quotes Edit

Steve McGarrett: Junior, what do you think about all this?
Junior Reigns: All due respect, sir, I'm just here to learn and observe.
Danny Williams: Why would you ask Switzerland?
Steve McGarrett: No, he's being polite. He knows I'm right.

Tani Rey: Oh, hello. Does this mean I finally have seniority over someone?
Steve McGarrett: Not quite. Junior's just shadowing us for the week.

Danny Williams: You know, I-I used to be terrified flying in these things, too. But statistically speaking, flying is-is a lot safer than driving.
Dr. Noelani Cunha: That's only true for planes. These things are actually more dangerous than cars. Based on hours, you're about 85 times more likely to die in a helicopter.
Danny Williams: Who told you that?
Dr. Noelani Cunha: Google.
Danny Williams: Steve, how come you never told me that?

Steve McGarrett: All right, so let's get to work.
Tani Rey: What's he doing?
Danny Williams: He's probably gonna eat the body. I don't know.

Steve McGarrett: That means that there's got to be some kind of vaccine or antidote out there.
Danny Williams: Nothing on him.
Tani Rey: Well, it was beautiful, that one small moment of hope that we had.

Junior Reigns: You're still walking, and talking. And you can stand, right? See, all of that means that you're still in the fight. And until you're not, then you don't give up.

Danny Williams: Hey, you know what the silver lining is (clears throat) that you haven't had to deal with this-this lunatic for the last seven years. Stuff like this happens all the time.

Tani Rey: Are you saying that it's a good thing that I'm dying today?
Danny Williams: No, I'm just saying you saved yourself a lot of stress over the last seven years, you know what I mean? Job ages you. Look at me. I used to be gorgeous.

Danny Williams: Do you want a paper bag or something?
Steve McGarrett: What?
Danny Williams: A very expensive bottle of champagne, you're drinking it like a wino. You're disgusting. Spitting all in the bottle and everything. What's the matter with you?
Steve McGarrett: So, I just want to get this straight. You're worried about my cooties now?
Danny Williams: That's a good point.

Danny Williams: Buddy, you got a six-pack. We get it. Relax, would you?
Junior Reigns: Yeah, just trying to stay in shape while we're stuck in here.

Danny Williams: What are you talking about? You liked the idea just fine the other day.
Steve McGarrett: No, I didn't, I hated it the minute it came out of your mouth, but I figured since we were all probably about to die, I didn't want to upset you

Steve McGarrett: You see what you just made me do?
Danny Williams: I made you bad at chess?
