If you don't count the episode quote at the beginning, this is a double drabble. If you do; it isn't.

Book 'Em, Danno

A tag to Episode 1.02, "Ohana"

Book 'em, Danno."

"Really, I mean, is that gonna be a thing now?" Danny asked.

It was the second time he said it. The first might have been a joke. Now, apparently, it was becoming a habit.

Danny climbed into the passenger seat of (his!) Camaro.

"Don't think you're fooling me. I know why you say it," Danny told Steve.


"You mean, 'book 'em, Danno?' I think it's catchy."

"Not the Danno part. You do that out of your infantile need to annoy me, because you think that raising my blood pressure is good for my heart. No, I meant the 'book 'em' part."
"I don't know what you mean," Steve said evasively, focusing much more than necessary, on driving out of the parking lot.

Danny, of course, couldn't let it go. "You need me to 'book 'em' because you don't know how!" the detective accused triumphantly. "You have no idea of the proper procedures for booking a suspect!"

Steve surrendered. "Have a heart. I've only been a cop for a week."

"Then you'd better come with me to HPD, lieutenant commander," Danny said primly. "Maybe you'll learn something."

"OK, but I don't promise to never say, 'Book 'em, Danno,' even if I know how to do it myself."

Danny rolled his eyes.
