Jack: Andrew, my name is Jack Bauer. I work for Secretary of Defense Heller. Secretary Heller was kidnapped less than half an hour ago. I believe the same people that kidnapped him are the ones that are chasing you now. The safest thing for you to do right now is let me bring you in.
Kalil: I found the person who stumbled onto our server.
Navi: Is he with you now?
Kalil: No. I’ll have him shortly.
Navi: Find out who he’s talked to.
Andrew: Who are you?
Kalil: I’m the man that’s going to kill you if you don’t follow my instructions.
Dina: This is a simple task, Behrooz. But these are the ones where mistakes can be made.
Behrooz: Debbie, what are you doing here?
Debbie: I followed you.
Navi: Omar saw you with someone outside the compound.
Behrooz: She didn’t see anything, I made sure of it.
Navi: We’ve spent years planning for this, waiting for this day to come. Now it’s here, and you’ve compromised everything.
Driscoll: It’s a simple job, Ronnie. You pick up the subject, and you bring him in.
Driscoll: Which is why I need you to keep him on a tight leash.
Ronnie: For the record, Jack, I think Driscoll made a mistake by letting you come along.
Ronnie: You get the gate, I’ll get the kid out of the car.
Richard: My father is the Secretary of Defense.
Curtis: Richard, right now you’re the only witness to your father and your sister’s kidnapping. We need your help. You don’t have anything to hide, do you?
Heller: We’ll be fine, honey. We’re still on U.S. soil.
Audrey: What are they gonna do to us?
Heller: I don’t know, but if they wanted me dead, they would have killed me at Richard’s house.
Omar: Our soldiers have taken the terrorist James Heller into custody. In three hours Heller will be tried for war crimes against humanity. If he is proven guilty, he will be executed in a curvet with our laws.
The following takes place between 9:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M.
Keeler: As you are all aware, the Secretary of Defense and his daughter have been kidnapped by a terrorist cell. The terrorists have announced that they will put Jim on trial for war crimes, then execute him. All of it broadcasted to the world. Make no mistake; this country is under attack. Foreign terrorists are operating on our soil. And intelligence indicates that the kidnapping may be some kind of trigger; a first step in a series of larger attacks. Mark, what kind of protective actions are being taken?
Mark: We changed all the codes and protocols the Secretary has knowledge of. Also, the other cabinet members have been sequestered.
Keeler: All right. Melissa, where are we with trying to keep these people from broadcasting this?
Melissa: The media outlets will all cooperate and not air it, but the terrorists have announced that they will use the internet. And we cannot control that. They’re using technology that makes their feed untraceable, and we can’t shut down the internet without disabling the command and control functions of the government in the economy.
Mark: Mr. President, the only way to stop this is at the source. We have to find the terrorists and rescue Secretary Heller.
Keeler: Erin, where is CTU on this?
Driscoll: We have search teams out in force and we’re working a few active leads, Sir.
Keeler: Anything promising?
Driscoll: We’ll know very shortly, Mr. President.
Keeler: Keep us closely posted. Ladies and gentlemen, nothing takes priority over finding the people who have Jim Heller and stopping them. Thank you.
Driscoll: Where are we with Heller’s son?
Curtis: We’re still trying to find out what he knows.
Driscoll: If he had anything to do with his father’s abduction, we need to know. Get on it.
Chloe: Well, try his emergency frequency.
Driscoll: What’s going on? Where’s Ronnie and Bauer with the witness?
Chloe: We don’t know.
Chloe: I just got off the phone with transit police. The hostile intercepted Andrew Paige at the station. We can’t reach Ronnie or Jack.
Driscoll: What do you mean, you can’t reach them?
Chloe: They’re not answering their phones and there’s been a report of a shooting at the station. I’m checking for an update right now.
Driscoll: Get recent pictures of Andrew Paige and get them to our people on the ground. Also, set up a security grid around the station.
Sarah: My system’s already logged on to the station. I can get it faster.
Driscoll: All right, fine. You do tactical with me. Let’s go, Edgar.
[The phone at Edgar’s workstation rings.]
Edgar: Edgar Stiles.
Jack: It’s Jack. Let me speak to Erin.
Edgar: Ms. Driscoll, Jack Bauer’s on line 1.
[Erin picks up the phone.]
Driscoll: Where are you? Why have you and Ronnie not been in contact?
Jack: Erin, Ronnie’s been killed.
Driscoll: What are you talking about?
Jack: He was shot by a hostile who kidnapped Andrew Paige.
Driscoll: Where are you now?
Jack: I’m in transit. I’m tracking them. But he doesn’t know it.
Driscoll: Give me your location. I’ll send backup to apprehend him.
Jack: Erin, I don’t think that’s the right call. I believe that if I follow them, they’re gonna lead me to Secretary Heller and the men who kidnapped him.
Driscoll: Listen to me. The terrorists have just announced that they are going to try and execute Heller in less than three hours. Bring the man in now!
Jack: Right now this is our best chance of finding him by then.
Driscoll: Jack, we had a deal!
Jack: Erin, you’re breaking up. Listen, have SWAT and rescue teams standing by. I’ll call you as soon as the hostile reaches his destination.
[Jack hangs up the call.]
Driscoll: That call - do you have a location?
Edgar: No, it had a block on it.
Driscoll: I’ve just been informed that Ronnie Lobell has been killed in the line of duty. The killer was a hostile connected to Heller’s abduction. At this point, Jack Bauer is no longer cooperating with this investigation. All departments need to be working on the location and capture of Jack Bauer and the hostile that he’s tracking down. Sarah, I need you to reconfigure the grid and to include roots away from the station. I want all ground teams on this.
[Chloe calls the MTA.]
Guy: MTA downtown.
Chloe: This is Chloe O’Brien from CTU. Do you have any new information about the kid who was abducted from your station?
Guy: No. We told you everything had a few minutes ago.
Chloe: What about surveillance cams? I can access them if you give me the port codes.
Guy: We’re looking at them right now, Ms. O’Brien. There’s nothing.
[Chloe hangs up. Sarah calls her.]
Sarah: What are you doing there? I need you to help me with this grid.
Chloe: What kind of help do you need?
Sarah: The northeast quadrant has passed coding, and I don’t…
Chloe: That’s the log in.
Sarah: Chloe, could you just get back here?
Chloe: My friend Andrew, who I promised would be OK, do you mind if I try to find him?
[Kalil calls Omar.]
Kalil: I have the programmer.
Omar: Good. We need to know what he told CTU as soon as possible. Proceed as planned.
Kalil: Understood. There was a problem at the train station.
Dina: Debbie saw the warehouse where we’re holding Heller?
Behrooz: Yes. But there wasn’t anything I could do about it.
Dina: You could have broken up with her a month ago, like your father and I told you to.
Behrooz: I know I made a mistake, but father found out she was with me and now he wants me to get her over here. You know what that means. If he thinks there’s the slightest chance she could expose what we’re doing…
Dina: I didn’t realize you felt so strongly about her.
Behrooz: She’s not going to mess anything up, I swear to you.
Dina: What do you want me to do?
Behrooz: Talk to him. He’ll listen to you. Please.
Dina: OK. Your father is on his way to a meeting. I’ll try to reach him.
Behrooz: Thanks, mom.
Richard: When can I get out of here?
Curtis: This is Darren.
Richard: What the hell are you doing? Get your hands off me!
Curtis: Who else knew your father would be at your house this morning?
Richard: I told you, no one.
[Darren gets a syringe out of his briefcase.]
Richard: What are you, crazy?
Curtis: It’s worsening your retransmitted level. Makes every nerve within your body feels like it’s on fire.
Richard: You’re bluffing. I know you can’t get away with this.
Curtis: By the time you’re released, the mark on your arm will be gone. It’ll be just your word against mine.
Richard: My father’s the Secretary of Defense, for God’s sake!
Curtis: I thought you hated him. Now he’s “dear old dad”?
Richard: Help me! Stop! Please! Help me! Help…!
[Curtis goes out to the observation room where Driscoll has been watching.]
Curtis: I can’t do that. I’m not Darren work on Richard Heller.
Driscoll: Why not?
Curtis: Maybe he’s protecting a friend. But he doesn’t know anything about the involvement of the terrorists. It’s an inappropriate use of force.
Driscoll: I gave you an order.
Curtis: Then give it to me in writing, Erin.
Driscoll: What are you suggesting, Curtis? That we release him?
Curtis: No. I’ve seen good results with sensory disorientation. Cut off his sight. It’s non-invasive.
Driscoll: Fine. Try it.
[Dina calls Navi as he is entering a restaurant.]
Dina: I just spoke with Behrooz. He told me about the problem with his girlfriend. He’s really upset, Navi.
Navi: That’s not concerns me. He has feelings for this girl despite what he told us. Now she’s seen the warehouse.
Dina: I know. It’s very troubling.
Navi: I told him to get her over to the house so we can question her. Did he make her come?
Dina: No. He asked me to talk to you instead. [Whispers to Behrooz]: Go upstairs.
Navi: What are we going to do?
Behrooz: Are you talking to father?
Dina [to Navi]: I’ll talk to you soon.
Navi: You’ll take care of this?
Navi: Thank you.
Behrooz: What did he say? Do I still have to call Debbie and get her over here?
Behrooz: Thank you.
Kalil [to Andrew]: I’m gonna pull over soon and we’re gonna talk, OK? Good. There’s some things I need you to know. Today is not about me, or you. It’s about something bigger. What I need to know with certainty is that whatever you saw on the internet will not interfere with what we have planned. You have to convince me of that.
[Jack’s phone rings. It is Chloe.]
Chloe: It’s gonna be a while on the satellite. Ever since Heller was taken, the load is through the roof.
Jack: How much longer?
Chloe: I’m not sure yet. What is your current position exactly? I need it to update the request.
Jack: The suspect pulled over just past Mile murk at 31.
Chloe: What did he get off for? There’s nothing there.
Jack: I don’t know. Chloe, I gotta go. Get back to me as soon as you’ve got the satellite coverage.
[Kalil’s men start beating up Andrew.]
Henchman: Get up.
Chloe: Jack, I’m watching this.
Chloe: On Caltrans traffic cam. You gotta stop this.
Jack: If I intercede right now we lose our opportunity to find Secretary Heller.
Kalil: What did you tell CTU?
Andrew: That someone was preparing to distribute some kind of positioning code on the internet.
Kalil: What else?
Andrew: I tried to dig deeper, but everything was in some kind of Arabic. I couldn’t read it.
Kalil: That’s all you told CTU?
Andrew: Yes, I promise.
Kalil: Are you sure?
Chloe: Jack, stop them. Just stop them.
Andrew: That’s all I know, I swear, I promise. Please, just don’t hurt me anymore. Please.
[Kalil calls Omar.]
Kalil: I talked to the programmer. I don’t think there’s a problem. He didn’t tell CTU enough to be able to stop us.
Omar: Are you sure?
Kalil: Yes. He only got a brief glimpse of the code. He was never logged onto our server.
Omar: I need you here. Get back on the road. Have them see what else they can find out, and then get rid of the body.
Kalil: I will see you soon.
[Back at CTU, Sarah comes up to Chloe.]
Sarah: Chloe, have you opened a secure pipe to Division?
Chloe: Ask Edgar.
Sarah: I did. He’s busy.
Chloe: Well, I’m busy too.
Sarah: Why are you always so impatient with everybody?
Chloe: Not everybody, just you. Now please go away.
Chloe: Jack, what’s happening?
Jack: The hostile’s moving. I’ve gotta follow him.
[Kalil drives off. Chloe watches as the other two men prepare to kill Andrew. Jack quickly shoots both of them.]
Chloe: Jack? Jack?
Chloe: Is Andrew alive?
Jack: Yes. Dispatch an ambulance to this location. Get me the damn satellite coverage.
Chloe: That’s right. Just off the road, next to the 31 mile marker. Please get there as fast as you can.
[Chloe goes to the bathroom to break down in tears.]
Curtis: What’s wrong?
Heller: When the trial begins you may have an opportunity to escape. You have to take it even if it’s dangerous.
Audrey: Maybe we’ll have a chance before then.
Heller: They’re never going to take their eyes off of me. It has to be when their attention is on the trial.
Audrey: I don’t wanna get out of here without you.
Heller: Forget about me. You have to take every chance. Promise me.
Audrey: Dad, I… I can’t.
Heller: Yes, you can. You can. I want you to live your life, a full life. I want you to have a family. That’s all I care about. You’re my baby.
Audrey: I can’t do it.
Heller: Yes, you can. You can do it. Come on now.
[Jack calls Chloe.]
Sarah: Chloe, you want me to get that?
Chloe: No. O’Brien.
Jack: Chloe, it’s me.
Chloe: I was just looking at the CHP dispatch report. Andrew is in really bad shape. I will never forgive you, do you hear me?
Jack: Chloe, I understand how you feel, but you’ve gotta think through this clearly. We have terrorists on U.S. soil. They’ve bombed a train, and they’ve kidnapped the Secretary of Defense. Right now our only chance is to follow this hostile and hope that he leads us to Secretary Heller.
Chloe: No, I’m not listening to you anymore. This is over. I’m going to Driscoll.
Jack: No, you won’t, Chloe, ‘cause you know I’m right.
Chloe: No, I don’t.
Jack: Chloe, if you didn’t believe in what I was doing, you’d have turned me in already.
Chloe: I hate that this is happening.
Jack: So do I. Chloe, I can’t do this without you. I need your help to stop them. Chloe.
Jack: Are you with me?
Chloe: Yeah. I’ll call you as soon as I have the satellite.
Jack: Thank you.
Sarah: Ms. Driscoll, this is Marianne Taylor.
Driscoll: Thank you. Miss Taylor.
Marianne: I’m very excited to have this opportunity to help you here. Hello, Curtis.
Driscoll: Curtis, take Marianne to an empty station. Get her started on the data sorts.
Curtis: I need you to build a firewall around station 4.
Chloe: Who’s that?
Curtis: Her name’s Marianne. I just wanna make sure she doesn’t stray outside the area for her assignment.
[The phone at Chloe’s workstation rings.]
Chloe: Fine. O’Brien.
Jack: Chloe, what’s going on?
Chloe: I don’t think I can do this, Jack.
Jack: Why? What’s the matter?
Chloe: Curtis has me spread too thin, and I’ve gotta get you a satellite under an overloaded system. I need more time.
Jack: We don’t have more time. In five minutes we’re gonna be coming up on Route 11. It’s a two-lane road. We’re gonna be the only cars for miles. There’s no way I can follow him without being seen.
Chloe: All right. I think I know a way to speed this up. I’ll get back to you.
[Edgar calls Chloe.]
Edgar: Chloe, the satellite subsystem’s stuck, and Driscoll wants these updates right now.
Chloe: OK, I’ll be right there. I hope Driscoll doesn’t get too upset. She really overreacts sometimes. Oh, this happened to me a few days ago. You can retrieve all your files through the auto backup in the server room.
Edgar: Good idea.
[Chloe calls Jack.]
Chloe: All right, I managed to steal your block in time, but there’s no continues coverage in the area you’re in. I’ll have to order reposition.
Jack: Fine, then do it. Hold on. It looks like we’re catching a break. He’s pulling into a gas station.
