Quotes Edit

Ellie Clayton: When I was a kid, my dad owned a bar. One night, someone came in to rob it, and he was killed. Your father investigated.
Steve McGarrett: I'm sorry.
Ellie Clayton: He never found who did it, but your dad, he stayed in my life. Every few weeks he'd checked in, and on the anniversary of my father's death, he'd take me to lunch. We'd get some shave ice and walk on this beach. It meant a lot to me. It made a difficult day a little bit easier. I'll always be grateful for that. So, now, on the anniversary of his death, I come to pay my respects, honor his memory.
Steve McGarrett: When was the last time you guys spoke?
Ellie Clayton: It was shorty before he died, actually. He called me to tell he might have a new lead in the case.
Steve McGarrett: Did he say what it was?
Ellie Clayton: No. He followed a lot of leads over the years. None of them ever came to much. You know, no matter how many setbacks, your dad, he never gave up.
Steve McGarrett: Yeah. He was stubborn like that.
