  • Catchphrase: "Book'em, Danno."
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Jerry, the man that Five-0 consults. Whatever you do, do not mention JFK or UFOs.
  • Hawaiian-Shirted Tourist: Jerry's disguise whenever he goes out and about.
  • Hero Stole My Bike: A villainous variant, and subverted. One of the bad guys steals a bike from a museum display to escape. He dismounts from his bike in front of HPD officers with their guns pointed at him.

  • Title Drop: The English translation of the episode is dropped while reading a coded message storing the MacGuffin.
  • Written-In Absence: Kono does not appear in the episode, as she and Adam have gone into hiding, although Chin got off the phone with Kono.
