Imagine Danny wanting to propose to Steve. No big deal, except Danny is very old fashion he has to get permission from Steve’s family first. Except that poses a problem: Doris is AWOL, Mary is out of town with Joan on vacation and well, Steve’s dad John is dead. Danny thinks long and hard on who he would honestly like to ask this very important question to.
Danny sits in his car, just out of walking distance from his destination. He takes a deep breathe and then finally gets out of his car. He walks across the lawn until he stops where he needs to at the headstone of “John McGarrett”, then he begins.
“Sir, my name is Danny Williams. I know that we never met before your death but from what I have heard about you from Steve, Mary and Chin, I think we would have gotten along well. Being as you are Steve’s father and the most important thing in his life I thought I would come to you about this, alive or dead. Well in your case, dead-” he chuckles nervously, he must look crazy talking to a headstone in the middle of a cemetery.
“The way it is, is that I love your son. Even though he is a meat head neanderthal gorilla with no sense of danger, but I love him still. And even though as long as I have been with him I have been shot at or even shot at least two dozen times but again that is besides the point. The point is, I want to marry your son, make an honest man out of him, if you will. This is me asking you sir, if I have your blessing to marry your son.” He paused for a minute like he was waiting for some kind of response.
His phone started to ring with Steve’s ringtone a moment later. “Yeah babe?”
“Where are you at?” Steve asked.
“Oh I am just taking care of something. I will see you soon okay?” Danny said hanging up. As he said that a white dove appeared out of no where and dropped a flower on top of John’s headstone and then flew off.
A smile came across Danny’s face, “I’ll take that as a yes.” he said to the headstone. “Thank you, sir.”
