Pic for the day – Mick and his rosy lips

Alex: (His favorite thing about his character Mick in Moonlight) My favorite thing about him I think is his ability to overcome extreme drama and duress and not lose sight of the lighter side of life, which essentially stems back to the humanity that he clings to, which is fundamentally extended in his heart. So I think without sounding sanctimonious or sentimental, my favorite thing about this character is his heart.

After handling a tough case where the team nearly lost Chin to a serial killer, they all go their separate ways for Christmas. Steve and Cath visit John’s grave. The holiday’s is a time for family, laughter and fun. It is kind of sad that the only family ‘near’ Steve at the time, is his dead father……….

The Steve McGarrett Story – No #81

We continue our story from here

Steve and Cath attend the National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day ceremony.

Steve: I tell you, Pearl Harbor day, it always gets to me, every year. Every single one of these veterans here, they are the definition of the word hero. They experienced all the horrors of war, then they come home, drop the duffel bags off and then they go back to work supporting their family’s the next day, like nothing happened.

Cath: They certainly set the bar high.

The team helps David Toriyama, to find his father’s killer. He died 70 years ago, in the Japanese Internment camp in Hawaii.

While going through David’s old family album, Steve spots a picture of his Grandfather in it. He wonders what his connection with the family might be.

David: I remember why your grandfather’s picture was in our family’s photo album. There was this young service man who used to come to our house for tutoring. He and his wife were about to have another child and he wanted better for them. So he asked my father to help him prepare for an officer aptitude test. For three months he would come over after dinner and when he had spare time he played catch with me. That man was your grandfather, Steven McGarrett. And the last time I saw him was December 6th, 1941, the night he gave me this. It was a gift for my father’s help. You have his heart, that’s how I remembered.

Steve: Mahalo.

Just a personal view about what could have been done with the backgound of a wonderful episode about history like this. Grandma McGarrett must have been a very special person as well. Having a small child and then losing her husband just 3 months before their son is born. I know she did not live in Hawaii and that makes such a story difficult – but it would have been nice, if she was brought in as somebody who organised some help and support for the Japanese families in those camps – that for me, would have really hit a home run, much more than the glove story did.

Sometimes the women and families back home and who survived these hero’s are forgotten. Those who had to carry on after losing those men (and women) that day in Pearl Harbor. Like I said Grandma McGarrett had to raise the father, that Steve loved so much, all on her own. Would love to hear about her courage as well some day. :smile:

The Steve McGarrett Story – No #80

We continue our story from here

It is Thanksgiving and it seems Steve invited everybody he knows to dinner. :grin: A surprise guest arrives at his doorstep. Deb, their aunt who lives on the mainland and who raised Mary, decided to pay them a visit. Deb is John McGarrett’s older sister, who put her own life on hold to look after Mary, when Doris faked her death and John abandoned his children.

It turns out that she is there to say goodbye to them, because she was diagnosed with brain cancer.

It seems that Deb’s greatest worry is Steve and Mary’s welfare, after she is gone. While they are alone, she asks Cath’s help  to look after them.

Deb: Dear Catherine, I’ve got a feeling you’re gonna be sticking around for a while. So, can I ask you a favour?

Cath: Of course

Deb: Well you know Steve has that tough guy act now, but underneath it all he’s still that vulnerable little guy who thought he lost his mom and had to grow up too soon. And Mary, she’s the only one who really gets that about him, because she lived that too. Once I’m gone, they’re going to need each other more than ever, although they both won’t want to admit it – stubborn kids. So, maybe you can see to it that they stay close.

Cath: I will. I promise.

Deb: Thanks

Back at the office, Steve shares his problem with Danny.

Steve: I need some advice. It’s about my Aunt. Aunt Deb, she’s sick.

Danny: Sick, sick, ah?

Steve: She’s sick. She’s got a brain tumour.

Danny: Agh. I’m sorry man. What are they going to do?

Steve: It’s inoperable, but she is refusing any other kind of treatment.

Danny: I guess that’s her choice, right.

Steve: Yeah, it’s her choice, but there’s the thing, it’s not her who´s gonna be affected by this. I mean Mary, Mary is gonna be destroyed, if we lose her, okay. First mom pulls her famous disappearing act again, and now this. What do I do? How do I get her to change her mind?

Danny: I don’t think, ah….. I don’t think you do try to change her mind. No, I mean look, if this is your last Thanksgiving together, do you want to spend it arguing?

Steve: No.

Danny: No, you wanna to try to make some memories. Good memories. Some that’s gonna last. Some that gonna bring you through whatever’s coming next. That’s my opinion. I’m sorry man.

Steve: Yeah.

 

After Aunt Deb tells Mary about her being sick, Steve tries to console her.

Steve: We’re gonna get through this…….you hear that.

Mary: I just feel so bad for Joan. She’s still too young to remember her aunt.

Steve: We’ll tell her all about Aunt Deb. And tell her all about how much she loved us.

Steve takes them all out to Thanksgiving dinner and they make some special memories……….
