Not Just a Morality Tale – A Challenge

Hawaii Five-0 may be known as a serious police procedural, but don't be fooled. There's a lot of humor to be found in unexpected places. Chin Ho's uncle was serving Chinese food in a Japanese neighborhood. "He's passing," Chin explained. Kono wears size 13 shoes. "I have tiny little feet," he explained. While tailing drug dealer Dillon, Steve and Danno enjoyed the trade winds in Danno's white Mustang convertible. Of course, Steve wore one of Jack's bright aloha shirts. I wonder what the governor would have thought if he had seen them.

So, here’s your challenge: Give one example of the use of humor that you enjoyed in an episode of Hawaii Five-0.
