#H50 Trivia Time: Loa Aloha (The Long Good-bye) 1×18

Aloha! Do you think some Trivia Time might keep us occupied for the next few days until S5 starts? Here’s the deal, though: I provide the trivia post, which you will hopefully enjoy a little, and in return, you find me a picture of Scott Caan arriving at Sunset on the Beach on his bike!! Anybody? Me and some of my tweeps NEED this. Ok, you can enjoy the Trivia Time whether or not you have a pic. But if you know where I can find one, let me know!!!

Today’s episode goes all the way back to S1, episode 18. Loa Aloha, The Long Goodbye. The episode where we met Danny’s little brother Matt. You know I’m a Danny fan, but yes, I did laugh over the little brother being about 8 feet taller.

Trivia Time: 4×01 Aloha ke kahi i ke kahi (We Need Each Other) #H50

It’s August! And do you know what that means? Yes, next month The Show returns!!!!

On a sort-of personal note, I am now halfway to my MBA. I just finished my 6th class and have 6 more to go. I would like to finish next spring. I wish I could do it faster, but I also have to earn a living, and those silly people who pay me actually want me to do stuff! Why is it only sort-of personal? Because all of that studying really cuts into my fangirling time! 😦

Are you interested in some trivia? Let’s take a closer look at 4×01 Aloha ke kahi i ke kahi (We Need Each Other).

Trivia Time: Huaka’ i kula (Field Trip) #H50

Are you ready for some trivia? This time we’re going to take a closer look at the 10th episode from season 3, Huaka’ i kula (Field Trip). Although, as Max would probably remind us, it was actually more of a jungle trip, as Danny and Steve go camping with Grace and her Aloha Girls entourage.

1. The show starts with Steve telling stories to the girls by a campfire. Aw, so cute! Warm, cozy storytelling by firelight. Just makes me feel fuzzy and comfy inside! What was the topic of his bedtime story?

A. A lovely fairy tale about fluffy clouds and sprinkles of sparkles.
B. That time that he beat Danny at Pac-man, so Danny had to wear sparkly pink cargo pants for a week
C. How he once saw a wild boar kill a tiger in India

2. Danny suggested they teach the girls how to make pillows out of flowers, but Steve asked if they would rather learn something else. He even demonstrated his idea! What was it?

A. Duh…how to beat Danny at Pac-man.
B. How to throw a knife and stab a tree (Hey, those wild trees can run pretty fast! This is a handy skill! I have to chase a pine tree at least once a week.)
C. How to use glitter effectively when scrapbooking

3. As usually happens with Our Boys, they got into some trouble. There was a crazy man named Ron nearby, and he took Steve and Lucy, one of the Aloha Girls, hostage. He also shot Danny in the shoulder! This gave the Aloha Girls leader, Madeline, a chance to teach the girls something, too. What did she teach them?

A. How to remove a bullet from a gunshot wound
B. How to search the internet for wild boar and wild tree recipes
C. How to roast marshmallows with a Bic lighter.

4. Later in the show, Danny prepares to hike into the jungle to find Ron, Steve, and Lucy. Madeline insists on going with him, even though he declines her help. She asks him some questions to see if he knows enough to safely trounce through the jungle on his own. What does she ask?

A. How can I accessorize sparkly pink cargo pants without looking like a teenager? What size do you wear in case I want to borrow those sparkly pink cargo pants? Would you go hiking into the jungle with my friend Rocsfan sometime, too?
B. Which way is north? How do you start a fire without matches? What are you going to do when you run into a bear?
C. What is your name? What is your favorite color? Who played Thor in The Avengers?

5. Grace earned an Aloha Girls patch for the camping trip. Which patch?

A. The SEAL of Approval, of course 🙂
B. The Scrapbooking with Glitter Patch
C. The Wilderness Survival Patch

Bonus observation: Steve revealed where the vulnerable spot on a wild boar is! Right between the shoulder blades. Coincidentally, this spot on my body would also be vulnerable to Steve! How did he know?
