    2. Same episode, same scene, Kono says, "Are those lizard shoes he wears, or does he just go barefoot?"

    3. On being told that a suspect says that he was with a blonde, playing gin, Danno says, "He was with a blonde, but I can't vouch for what they were playing." from "Along Came Joey."

    4. "Sorry to disappoint you, but it was a package deal." Danno in "Heads, You're Dead."

    5. "Feel free to use my phone anytime, Danno." Steve teasing Danny in "Double Exposure."

    6. Chin goes poking around the auto parts at Oscar's shop. Oscar tells Chin, "I have extraordinary powers." Chin pulls out his five-0 badge and says, "So do I." from "Turkey Shoot at Makapuu."

    10. "What do you want, you venerable pain in the ancestor?" Lanikai (whom Mike G. describes and the Hawaiian Elvis imitator) punk to Chin Ho Kelly in "Yesterday Died, Tomorrow Won't Be Born."

    13. "It's my job to uncover the truth, wherever it lies, wherever it's buried." McGarrett to Vera Miles in "Dear Enemy." Actually, this one went to least favorite quotes.

    14. "Cheer up, Danno. There are 800 women on the Singapore police force." McGarret in "Year of the Horse."

    15. "Thank you for your suggestion, Mr. McGarrett. We continue to benefit from your experience." Manu Tupou deadpans after Steve "suggests" what the Singapore police should do to tail a suspect. From "Year of the Horse."

    For whatever reason, I'm thinking "Murder--Eyes Only" for the Wo Fat quote.

    Number 38 was uttered by Miller, played by Andrew Duggan.

    I’m almost positive the Wo Fat quote is said to Soon Taik-Oh in “The Jinn Who Clears the Way”. Love it!!!!!!!!!

    I also love when Wo says to the incompetent stooge Wong Tu (Danny Kamekona) “You could be... but you’ll not be” (meaning on the next flight out of here) before having him killed.

    I love all the dialogue in “Mutual Concern” but can anyone explain these two??? I’m assuming the first has something to do with Tasi stealing all their tooth fillings, because it’s precious metal or gold maybe????

    And then what about the second one? That Tasi is barely human??? More like a reptile? An uncivilized animal???

    Just my guesses LOL! I could be completely off.

    And with that, Ringfire is back I missed you! I think you're right Ringfire, now that you typed that I'm sure that's the episode.

    Uh, people, it really isn't necessary to "reply with quote," because I'm sure we can all see the previous part of the discussion.

    Seeing the multiple included quotes above is making me start twitching, recalling what used to happen with the Yahoo H50FC discussion group, where there would be dozens of quotes and then someone would make a one-word or one-line comment.

    If you really want to include the previous quote, your message can be edited to include it if it is REALLY necessary.

    Please!!

    Sorry Mr. Mike. I just read your latest project...are you getting a sick sense of deja vu?

    Ringfire - you had it mostly right. Correct episode, it was to Danny Kamekona (the same guy he told wasn't going to make the flight)

    Any ideas about those 2 quotes from “Mutual Concern”? Are my musings valid or am I off-base?

    Ringfire, your comments on 06-04-2020, 07:28 AM regarding an interpretation for those two quotes are absolutely correct, in my opinion.

  13. #13
    Ok good to know that I’m interpreting those lines more or less as they were intended.

    The highlight of the episode’s dialogue, however, comes at the end at the War Natatorium between Li Wing and Kim Lo Lang. The former tries to bargain with the latter regarding all his possessions (all the way down to $1.00 if I recall correctly) and Kim just uses one great zinger after another to shoot the old man down. Classic stuff!!
