Jack: This is Bauer.

Palmer: Jack, this is David Palmer.

Jack: Mr. President.

Palmer: CTU tells me you got something from Lee.

Jack: We got a location on Habib Marwan. We’re on route with tactical teams now. We’re hopeful we can put an end to this soon.

Palmer: I hope you’re right, Jack. This warhead can detonate any moment now.

Jack: We know, sir.

Palmer: Jack, tell me about the representative from the Chinese consulate, Cheng. Is he still at CTU?

Jack: He was there when we left.

Palmer: Are we OK there?

Jack: They have a surveillance photo of one of my team members. We told them that we didn’t think the photo was clear enough to be conclusive evidence. That’s gonna hold them off for a while.

Palmer: I see. Thank you, Jack.

Jack: Thank you, Mr. President.

Palmer: And good luck.

Jack: Thank you, sir.

[Palmer hangs up.]

Palmer: All right, mike. I’m gonna need you to advise the President that Cheng has to leave CTU now.

Mike: President Logan was clear that he wanted Cheng to have access there.

Palmer: And he has. But now Cheng is slowing them down. He’s got to go. CTU needs to be able to do their job without the added pressure of a cover-up. You think you can get President Logan to sign off on that?

Mike: I’ll see what I can do.

[Mike goes into the President’s office.]

Logan (over the phone): Yes. No, not now, Keith. I have too many things to deal with first. Yes, you do that. Thank you.

[Logan hangs up.]

Logan: What is it, Mike?

Mike: Mr. President, the Chinese Security Officer, Cheng, is still at CTU, and he seems to be slowing things down.

Logan: He wouldn’t be there at all if Palmer hadn’t authorized an attack on his consulate.

Mike: It’s too late to change that now, sir.

Logan: Yes. Yes, it is. If we order Cheng to leave CTU now, it’ll look like we’ve got something to hide, and we’ll just be giving the Chinese all the justification they need to escalate this crisis.

Mike: Mr. President, if we don’t find that warhead before it’s deployed, ten million Americans could face annihilation.

Logan: And we could be at war with a billion Chinese.

Mike: My advice, sir, is to worry about the Americans now and the Chinese later.

Logan: Your advice or David Palmer’s advice?

Mike: Both of ours.

Logan: When I agreed to let you bring Palmer in, it wasn’t so the two of you could form an alliance against me.

Mike: Sir, that’s not what’s happening.

Logan: No? Why don’t you tell me what’s happening. You and David Palmer are running this country while I’m taking phone calls from mid-level staffers.

Mike: Would you like me to ask President Palmer to leave?

Logan: No. Call CTU. Tell Bill Buchanan to escort Mr. Cheng out of the building.

Mike: Yes, Mr. President.


[Jack and Curtis pull up to the location.]

Jack: Curtis, put Michaels in play now.

[Jack radios Chloe.]

Jack: Chloe, this is Jack. We’re at the perimeter outside the factory. Our men are getting into position. Can you confirm that Marwan’s in the building?

Chloe: I can’t say for sure, but I’m detecting a microwave uplink to the building.

Jack: Can you intercept it?

Chloe: No. It’s got encryption.

Jack: OK, thanks. Are we ready?

Curtis: Yeah. How are we gonna confirm Marwan’s inside there?

Jack: We don’t. We’re out of time. We move now. Give all teams a go.

Curtis: All right. All teams, it’s a go.


[Buchanan escorts Cheng out of the building.]

Cheng: So you know, Mr. Buchanan, this matter will be pursued. I will return with a formal order for a more extensive investigation.

Buchanan: I understand. In the meantime, if I were you, I’d focus my attention on the “People’s Freedom Coalition”. I’m quite sure they are your perpetrators. We’ll do everything we can to help you.

Tony: Sir.

Buchanan: Excuse me.

Tony: Jack’s team is at the staging area outside the building.

Buchanan: I’ll be right there. Mr. Cheng, excuse me, please. I have to get back. My men will escort you from the building.

Cheng: Thank you.

[As Cheng being led out of the building he hears someone address Edgar, and approaches him.]

Woman: Edgar.

Cheng: Excuse me. Edgar Stiles, Communication Analyst, right?

Edgar: Yeah. I’m busy.

Cheng: I forgot to ask Mr. Buchanan one last thing. Maybe you could help me.

Edgar: I can’t help you. You should ask him.

Cheng: It’s not classified. Audrey Raines had mentioned to me that you were helping her earlier with some DOD files.

Edgar: Yeah, until she was called down to the clinic.

Cheng: So it was just you and Jack then?

Edgar: What?

Chloe: Edgar, come here.

Edgar: I have to go. Bye.

Cheng: Thank you.

Chloe: You idiot.

Edgar: What?

Chloe: Just keep your mouth shut.

Edgar: I didn’t say anything.

[Cheng makes a phone call.]

Cheng: The man who led the attack on our consulate was Jack Bauer. Pull up all his files. I want to look at them when I get back.


Jack: Michaels, are you in position?

Michaels: Roger that.

Jack: He’s at your two O’clock. Take him out.

Michaels: Copy that.

[Marwan orders the sequence to start. As the countdown begins, he shuts down the computer and leaves with his men.]

Morrison: We’re ready.

Marwan: Start the sequence. We’re done here. Get the car.

[Jack and the SWAT team stealthily enter the building. They take out Marwan’s guards.]

Jack: He’s cornered in this room. Counter-flank and push him back to me.

Curtis: Copy.

[Marwan tries to escape.]

Curtis: Freeze.

[Curtis pushes Marwan to Jack.]

Jack: I’ve been waiting for this.

Marwan: You’re too late.

[Jack shoots Marwan in the arm, and he falls to the ground.]

Jack: That hurts, doesn’t it?

[Jack is about to kill Marwan.]

Curtis: Jack. Jack, what are you doing? We still need him.

Marwan: Go ahead, kill me. That won’t stop the missile.

Jack: What are you talking about? What are you talking about?

[Curtis goes over to the computer.]

Curtis: Jack, we got a problem. Come here and look at this.

Jack: Secure the prisoner.

[Jack sees a live feed of a missile on the computer.]

Jack: Oh, my God, they’ve got a missile. Have you got your com unit? Patch it through to the computer. Tony, it’s Jack. Can you hear me?

Tony: Yeah, Jack. What’s going on?

Jack: I’m looking at a live feed of the warhead. It’s been mounted on a missile.

Tony: A missile? How can that be?

Jack: I don’t know. We’re trying to get the feed over to you now. Hold on.

Man: Logging on. We got it. Put it up on the screen.

Jack: Have you got it?

Curtis: Yeah.

Jack: How much time have we got?

Curtis: 51 seconds.

Jack: Tony, can you see this?

Tony: Yeah.

Jack: Can you get a source of the transmission?

Tony: Hang on a second. No, Jack. It’s on an encrypted uplink. There’s no way to trace it.

Jack: Do a geographic scan. See if you can pull a location.

Tony: Chloe, anything specific on the visual?

Chloe: It looks like a forest area, trees, a structure.

Jack: Tony, we’re out of time.

Tony: We’re trying, Jack. We can’t ID the location. It’s too general.

Buchanan: Edgar, see if you can pick up a heat signature from the point of ignition.

Edgar: I’ll try, but it’s a wide radius.

Chloe: There’s not gonna be enough time to stop this launch.

Tony: Chloe, do you have anything?

Chloe: I’m trying the four band satellite, but it’s not working either.

[The missile fires and leaves its launch pad, carrying the warhead to an unknown location.]

Previously on 24:

Logan: David, what have you done?

Palmer: Excuse me, sir?

Logan: I just got a call from the Secretary of State telling me about a covert action against the Chinese consulate in Los Angeles.

Palmer: That’s correct. I sanctioned it.

Logan: You authorized an attack on their consulate! That’s a military engagement.

Palmer: It was a covert operation.

Logan: We marched onto Chinese soil, we kidnapped one of their nationals, and in the process the Chinese consul was killed.

Mike: Mr. President, if we don’t find that warhead before it’s deployed, ten million Americans could face annihilation.

Logan: And we could be at war with a billion Chinese.


Jack: Is he gonna make it?

Doctor Basin: We’re gonna do the best we can.

Jack: I just need him coherent long enough to get the information about Marwan and the missing warhead.

Doctor Basin: I know, Jack. You already made me aware of that when you forced me to sacrifice Paul Raines’ life.


Jack: I’m so sorry.

Audrey: You made a choice that killed Paul, and I’m trying to deal with it. We both have a job, let’s just do it.


Jack: I know that he worked with Marwan on the warhead. Now he needs to tell us where it is.

Melissa: He doesn’t know. But he knows where Marwan might be. A factory on Sixth.


Marwan: They’re looking for the warhead in their cities. They have no idea that it’s gonna be delivered by a missile. Start the sequence. We’re done here. They can’t stop us now.

Jack: I’ve been waiting for this.

Marwan: You’re too late. Kill me. That won’t stop the missile.

Jack: Tony, can you see this?

Tony: Yeah.

Jack: Can you get a source of the transmission?

Tony: No, Jack. It’s on an encrypted uplink. There’s no way to trace it.


The following takes place between 4:00 A.M. and 5:00 A.M.

[Since it has stealth technology, the missile can’t be traced.]

Jack: Tony, it’s Jack. Have you got a lock on the missile?

Tony: No, we’re still trying to find it, Jack. What are you gonna do with Marwan?

Jack: We’re gonna scan the building one more time, then I’m gonna bring him into CTU. I want you to prep a holding room. Tony, I’m going off of com. If you need me, get me on my cell.

Tony: All right, you got it.

[Jack pulls the earpiece out of his ear.]

Jack: I want you to try and decode his files. I’m gonna go prep a team to scan the building.


Buchanan: Unbelievable. How the hell did they manage to assemble a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead?

Michelle: S-series cruise missile, stealth technology. They must have smuggled it in piece by piece and then assembled it onsite.

Buchanan: If it’s stealth, we can’t track it by radar. What about the targets?

Michelle (to Edgar): Pull it up. An S-series has a range of 18,000 miles, which means the warhead could be delivered from the Midwest to anywhere in the continental United States.

Tony: This missile’s traveling at a speed of 600 miles an hour, which means it can hit the target in either coast in under three hours.

Buchanan: That’s assuming it’s headed for the coast. If it’s not, it could hit its target at any time.


Curtis: There are no files on this. He just used it to unscramble down like.

Jack: What else did you find?

Curtis: Nothing, it was clean. Just the laptop and the cell phone.

Jack: OK. Take the sim card out of the phone, upload it to CTU, see if any of it’s traceable.

Curtis: You got it.

[Jack’s cell phone rings.]

Jack: This is Bauer.

Logan: Jack, this is President Logan. I’ve just been told a cruise missile was launched containing the nuclear warhead.

Jack: Yes, sir, that’s correct. Our millitary tracking devices are doing everything they can to find the trajectory of the missile, but we don’t have a lot to go on.

Palmer: What about Marwan, Jack? You think he’ll break?

Jack: That won’t be easy, sir. He’s planned and organized everything that’s happened today. He’s committed to his cause. He’s prepared to die.

Palmer: I know you’ll do your best. Keep me posted.

Jack: Yes, sir, I will.

[They hang up the call.]

Palmer: Let the Joint Chiefs know of the situation, but tell him that this should be limited to the intelligence community only.

Mike: Sir, if a nuclear missile has been launched, we have to assume that Washington is its target.

Logan: What are our options?

Mike: We don’t have many. Our first priority is to establish a continuative government and start a quiet evacuation of government personnel in the city.

Palmer: Bring the cabinet members and the speaker of the house to the bunker. The Congress and the Pentagon should be taken to the mountain safety facility.

Mike: Right.

Palmer: Mike, let them know that this is category one emergency. Tell them nothing more. We can’t afford an information leak.

Logan: David, the public needs to be warned, cities need to be evacuated.

Palmer: Not yet. Let’s see what Bauer comes up with first.


Curtis: He’ll die before he talks to us.

Jack: I know.

[With time slipping away, Jack confronts Marwan to find out what he had hoped to accomplish.]

Jack: Stand down. You and I both know all I wanna do right now is to kill you. But I have my orders. We’ve ran out of time. You win. I’ve been instructed to ask you what you want.

Marwan: What I want is already happening.

Jack: The death and destruction of innocent life is a means to an end. Why don’t we just skip to the end?

Marwan: To the end?

Jack: Everything that you did today, you did for a reason - for your people. What do you want to change?

Marwan: I have no interest in having a political discussion with you.

Jack: I am in a unique position to make things happen. I have the ear of the President of the United States right now. You have the power to make any kind of deal that you want, and I promise you - you’ll do more for you and your people if you cooperate with me than if you let that missile hit its target. You tell me where the missile’s headed, you help me to stop it, and I guarantee you that you’ll talk to the President and he will listen to you, he has no choice. Right here, right now. You have the chance to get what you want.

Marwan: I already have, agent Bauer. After this day every elected official and citizen of America will know that America cannot intervene in our lives or countries with impunity. Besides, your President sees me in only one dimension - evil.

Jack: As you see us.

Marwan: Yes, and vulnerable.


[Edgar shows Chloe calls pulled up on Marwan’s cell phone.]

Edgar: Chloe, come here.

Chloe: What?

Edgar: You’re never gonna believe what I just found. I got names off some calls received on Marwan’s cell phone. Take a look.

Chloe: Richard Heller?

Edgar: That’s right, Secretary of Defense Heller’s son called Marwan a week ago.

Chloe: Did you tell anyone yet?

Edgar: No, just you.

Chloe: I’ll let Buchanan know.

[Chloe tells Buchanan and his staff about the connection with Richard Heller.]

Buchanan: With every minute that passes, the missile’s target zone widens. We need to get updates from regional teams.

Chloe: I’m sorry to interrupt, but you need to hear this. Edgar just pulled a name off Marwan’s cell phone. It was from a call he received last week.

Buchanan: Who called him?

Chloe: Richard Heller.

Buchanan: Are you sure?

Chloe: Yeah. We ran the number and it came up as originating from Richard Heller’s cell phone.

Tony: That must be how Marwan knew where Secretary Heller was gonna be yesterday morning.

Chloe: You think Richard helped to plan his own dad’s kidnapping?

Tony: I don’t know.

Buchanan: Where is he now?

Chloe: Well, it’s 4:00 A.M. He’s at home asleep, I guess.

Buchanan: Where does he live, Chloe?

Chloe: Van Nuys.

Buchanan: Do we have field teams in the area?

Chloe: I don’t know. I’ll pull it up on the IP phone. Yes, we do.

Buchanan: Dispatch them. I’ll call Secretary Heller, tell him his son’s being brought back in.

Tony: Chloe, does Audrey know about this?

Chloe: No. It’s more of a management conversation, don’t you think? (Over the phone) This is O’Brian. Your team has been issued new orders. You are to dispatch immediately to van Nuys.

[Tony goes over to Audrey.]

Tony: Audrey, you got a minute?

Audrey: Yeah, sure. What is it?

Tony: It’s about your brother, Richard.

Audrey: Is he all right?

Tony: I assume he is, yeah.

Audrey: What do you mean?

Tony: We just found out that Habib Marwan got a call from Richard’s cell phone a week ago.

Audrey: I’m sorry, but that’s absurd.

Tony: We don’t know what it means yet, but Buchanan is sending a team over to pick Richard up right now.

Audrey: Tony, my brother was already brought in once today and he was cleared.

Tony: Yeah, I know. But this call definitely connects him to Marwan and the missile.

Audrey: Look, I don’t know how he got mixed up in this, but my brother is not a terrorist.

Tony: Audrey, Richard’s phone number was found on a received registry of Marwan’s sim card.

Audrey: Does my father know about this?

Tony: Buchanan’s calling him right now.

Audrey: All right.

Tony: I’m sorry.


Curtis (over the phone): All right. I’ll tell him. Yeah.

[Curtis hangs up.]

Curtis: Jack, we got something.

Jack: What?

Curtis: Richard Heller called Marwan a week ago.

Jack: We’re sure about this?

Curtis: Yeah, they’re bringing him to CTU.

Jack: I wanna question this kid myself. We need to get back there now. Put the suspect in the vehicle. We’re headed back to CTU now.

Marwan: It doesn’t matter where you take me.

Jack: Yeah, we’ll see about that.

[Jack’s cell phone rings.]

Jack: This is Bauer.

Buchanan: Jack, were you able to get anything out of Marwan?

Jack: No, we’re gonna take him back to CTU. We got a better chance of breaking him there. We’re about ten minutes out.

[As the agents load Marwan into the SUV, a rocket-propelled grenade streaks past Jack and explodes one of the CTU cars. The agents fire back at the snipers above]

Jack: Curtis, are you OK?

Curtis: Yeah.

[A terrorist climbs into the SUV that Marwan is in and peels out.]

Jack: Can you see the shooters?

Curtis: They’re on the roof behind us.

Jack: Go! Notify the perimeter we no longer have Marwan in custody!

Curtis: Perimeter teams, Marwan’s escaped! He’s headed towards the southwest sector.


Buchanan: Chloe, what have you got on Marwan?

Chloe: Nothing. He already ditched the transport vehicle. We can’t find him on satellite.

Buchanan: How did his people get into that area?

Chloe: They didn’t; they must have been there before us. Marwan secured the location.

Buchanan: All right, have perimeter teams cover nearby buildings for remaining hostiles, then shift personnel to tracking the missile.

Tony: We lost him, Jack.

Jack: Dammit, Tony, how?

Tony: They dumped their vehicle on the freeway. In the chaos, Marwan must have gotten into another car and driven off. We’re trying to analyze the satellite right now, but the images are too noisy.

Jack: How does Buchanan wanna handle this?

Buchanan: I’m here, Jack. Finding Marwan is becoming less likely. With that missile in the air, we have to follow primary leads only; Right now that’s Richard Heller.

Jack: Has he arrived yet?

Buchanan: No, our team’s on the way to get him. He’ll be back here momentarily.

Jack: Bill, I wanna interrogate this kid myself.

Buchanan: I understand. I’ll have him ready for you.

Jack: OK, we’re on our way in.

[Jack hangs up.]

Jack: Curtis, we need to get back to CTU. They lost Marwan. We’re gonna have to track him from there.

Curtis: What did Buchanan say?

Jack: Richard Heller’s at first position. We’re gonna interrogate him.


[The President addresses the Cabinet assembled in the White House bunker on the nuclear missile threat.]

Man: Mr. President.

Logan: Please, everybody, be seated. I would like to apologize for the abruptness of your removal from your homes and your offices. Please know that every precaution had to be taken to ensure the secrecy of your arrival. The U.S. has been thrown into a category one emergency. A cruise missile containing a nuclear warhead has been launched and is now headed for, we believe, a major U.S. city, very possibly Washington D.C. Now, all branches of the military have been alerted and they’re doing everything in their power to locate the missile and to intercept it.

Ashton: Excuse me, sir. You’re saying that not only do we not know what the missile’s target is, but you don’t even know where the missile is?

Logan: That’s correct.

Ashton: When do you plan to inform the public?

Logan: As of this time, we feel that informing the public wouldn’t be in the country’s best interest.

Ashton: “We” meaning who, Mr. President?

Logan: I feel that way, Mr. Speaker.

Ashton: Doesn’t the public have a right to know the truth?

Logan: That’s all I have for now. When I know more, an update will be given. Thank you.

[Logan turns to leave.]

Logan: Gentlemen.

Ashton: Mr. President.

Logan: Yes, Don?

Ashton: Sir, I do not wish to question your decision in front of the cabinet, but I think that you’re making a grave mistake in not alerting the public.

Logan: Look, I’ve thought a lot about this and I’m certain it’s the right course.

Ashton: Well, if I may say so, sir, you do not seem certain.

Logan: It’s a difficult day for all of us, Don. Now, if you’ll excuse me.

[Logan leaves to confer with Palmer, and Ashton notices the body language between the two men. It’s clear that Palmer is in the dominant, confident position to Logan.]

Ashton: Mike, what’s going on here?

Mike: Meaning what?

Ashton: Logan was sworn in a few hours ago, we’re under a massive terrorist attack. He needs all the help he can get.

Mike: He understands that and he’s seeking advice from everywhere.

Ashton: Not from his cabinet or the congressional leadership.

Mike: Give it time, Don. Give it time.


Tony: Tactical’s at Richard’s house. They’re going through his things right now.

Michelle: What about Jack?

Tony: Jack and Curtis are on their way back.

Michelle: Someone has to tell Audrey that Jack’s going to be interrogating her brother.

Tony: Audrey’s not gonna wanna let Jack near her brother.

Michelle: It can’t be helped. I mean, if Richard knows something about that missile…

Tony: It’s funny, this morning Jack and Audrey were planning their future. Now he’s responsible for her husband’s death, and he may have to torture her brother.

Michelle: And yet every move he’s made has been the right one.

Tony: Not if he wanted to be with her. Look, Michelle… Everything that’s happened here today, it’s been hard going through it with you again.
