Behrooz: Why? Because I don’t wanna kill innocent people?
Navi: Because you’re weak, and you stand for nothing!
Marwan: Is there a problem, Navi?
Navi: Government agents have arrested Dina and surrounded the building that I’m in. How much more time do you need till you melt down the remaining nuclear power plants?
Marwan: One hour, maybe two.
Jack: I don’t wanna have to kill you, but I will. I have the suspect in custody. I need assistance.
Jack: I need you to take Dina Araz and her son back to CTU and head up the interrogation.
Tony: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a second, Jack. They’d never let me set my foot in CTU even if I wanted to.
Jack: If I press hard enough, I can get you reinstated but I need to know now: is that what you want?
Tony: Ms. Driscoll, I’m sure you’re aware of my history here.
Driscoll: Not an issue. Jack Bauer and Secretary Heller both vouched for you. That’s enough for me.
Curtis: Did Powell work directly for the terrorists?
Marianne: I told you, I don’t know.
Curtis: I need names. People who can get us to the override. This place may not be as empty as it seems.
Marianne: What, you think this is some kinda trap?
Curtis: Yes, I do.
Marianne: I didn’t give them anything. I…
Forbes: What does CTU know about the override?
Jack: Audrey, it’s me.
Audrey: Hey. Did you find anything at the address?
Jack: Yeah. The company that owns the building – it’s called “Galaxy Financial Services”. Have you ever heard of them?
Audrey: No. Should I have?
Jack: Your husband’s a chief financial officer.
Paul: What are you doing here? What’s really going on? What are you, are you spying on me?
Audrey: Are you doing something worth spying on?
Paul: What is that supposed to mean?
Jack: Get your hands off of her!
Paul: You set me up!
Jack: Put your hands on your head now!
Paul: What do you want?
Jack: I want some answers.
The following takes place between 5:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M.
Jack: I think it would be better if you left the room while I question your husband. You can wait just outside with the backup team.
Audrey: What are you gonna do to him?
Jack: Whatever I have to.
Audrey: I’m staying.
[Jack goes to wake the unconscious Paul up.]
Jack: Look at me, Paul. Look at me.
Paul: I’ve got nothing to say to you.
Jack: Here’s what you need to know, Paul: there are five nuclear power plants ready to melt down. All I care about right now is making sure that that doesn’t happen. Your name is on a lease in a building in Chatsworth that was used by the terrorists to plan today’s attack. That makes you a prime suspect. I’m gonna treat you like one, do you understand that?
Paul: My name is on at least 50 different leases. I own ten different corporations. I don’t know anything about some building in Chatsworth.
Jack: I don’t believe you. The lease of that building was notarized. There’s documentation of your ID. CTU verified your signature. Paul, you need to start talking to me now.
Paul: I’ve got nothing to say to you.
[Jack isn’t sure of the truth, and he cuts the electrical cord from a lamp to shock Paul. Audrey is horrified.]
Audrey: Jack. I don’t think that Paul would be a traitor to this country.
Jack: Right now Paul is a prime suspect, and he’s not cooperating with me and I don’t have time to do this any other way. I need to know for sure.
[Jack goes over to Paul.]
Jack: Paul. This is the last chance you’ve got to talk to me before I have to hurt you. Tell me about 24878 Alvord Street in Chatsworth. Why’s your name on the lease?
Audrey: Jack, please…
Jack: Audrey, don’t interfere! If you need to step outside of this room, do it. Why is your name on the lease?
Paul: You’re bluffing.
[Jack shock Paul with the electrical cord.]
Jack: I need that information, Paul. I need it now. Come on, Paul, just tell me what’s your connection to the terrorists.
Audrey: Jack, please don’t.
[Jack shock Paul with the electrical cord again.]
Paul: I don’t… I don’t know the specific building you’re talking about. I… I can find out.
Paul: The corporate records are still in my laptop. If… If that address is under my name, then… then it’ll come up. Maybe there’s someone else involved I don’t know about.
Jack: What’s your user ID and login number?
Paul: It… It’ll be much quicker if I just do it. Please.
[Marwan arrives at the Rockland Building where Powell’s office is located.]
Ali: I’m sorry I had to call you here, Marwan, but I had no choice. CTU is trying to disable the override using a dreen-filled mode tool. They’ve already shut down over 90 reactors.
Marwan: I always knew they’d stop some of them. The important thing is that one of the reactors has melted down. As long as the override has control of the other five, I can do the rest from here.
Ali: Everything is ready for you upstairs.
Marwan: Will anyone in that office be suspicious?
Ali: I reported a system failure. If anyone asks, tell them you’re from IT, restoring my hard drive. My desk is in the last row, three from the end, C-8-6. The override is well-disguised inside the desk. Here is the key.
Ali: How much time will you need?
Marwan: 45 minutes to melt down the remaining reactors.
Forbes: He’s out. He’s not gonna tell us anything. What does Marwan want us to do with him?
Ali: Finish him off, then get rid of the body.
Forbes: Take care of it.
Henchman #1: He came with a woman and two other agents. Where are their bodies?
Henchman #2: They’re in the van.
[The men unchain Curtis’s limp body and carry him. Curtis was only faking, and kills them with his bare hands. He takes their guns and walks out into the building. The doors are all locked by security codes.]
[Paul uncovers his computer files on “Galaxy Financial Services”.]
Paul: Yeah, here it is. “Galaxy Financial Services”.
Jack: What kind of a company is it?
Paul: It’s um… a failing service. It was about to dissolve, and then someone came in with an offer to buy 51 percent of the shares. Some 800,000 grand, something like that. Yeah, “Harris Barnes, Director”.
Jack: Who is Harris Barnes?
Paul: I, uh… don’t remember.
Jack: What do you mean, you don’t remember?
Paul: I’m involved with over 30 companies. I don’t deal directly with most of them.
Jack: Explain to me, Paul, how your name got on the lease.
Paul: I don’t know.
Jack: You expect me to believe that you entered into a business deal worth hundreds of thousands of dollars with someone that you’ve never met?
Paul: My attorney handles most of the…
Jack: Paul, I don’t believe you!
Audrey: Jack, it’s possible. Paul has put together a lot of deals through his attorneys.
[Jack calls CTU.]
Sarah: This is Sarah.
Jack: Hey, it’s me. I need you to run a name for me.
Sarah: Go ahead.
Jack: Harris Barnes. He’s the Director of a Californian corporation “Galaxy Financial Services”.
Sarah: What am I looking for?
Jack: Where he lives, his business, anything we could possibly connect with any terrorist activity.
Sarah: All right, give me a minute.
Jack: I’ll be here.
[Jack hangs up.]
Jack: She’s calling me right back. Excuse me.
[Jack leaves the room.]
Paul: Your boyfriend is just a thug with a badge.
Audrey: Paul, why is your name on that lease?
Paul: Unbelievable. An hour ago I was sitting here feeling sorry for myself that you didn’t want me back. And now… you think I’m a terrorist. You think I had something to do with you and your father’s kidnapping?
Audrey: I don’t know what to believe anymore.
[Jack comes back inside the room. His cell phone rings.]
Sarah: OK, I ran down the name Harris Barnes and a lot of data came up, but it was inconsistent, so I went into the IRS records and found out that Harris Barnes did end up here on their logs until two years ago.
Jack: So it’s an alias?
Sarah: As far as I can tell, it’s a watched ID. It devours a social security number and credit card history. Interpol back-traced the name and provided a list of four nationals who’ve used it in the past.
Jack: Who used it most recently?
Sarah: A man named Habib Marwan.
Jack: We need to find him.
Sarah: I think we already have.
Jack: What do you mean?
Sarah: Marwan used the name Harris Barnes to lease more office space here in LA. It turns out the same address was given to us an hour ago by Marianne Taylor. She and Curtis are there now.
Jack: What’s the address?
Sarah: It’s the 29th floor at the Rockland building downtown.
Jack: Right now it’s our only lead. If he is, that’s where the override is. I’ll get back to you.
[Driscoll and Sarah watch Tony interrogate Dina.]
Tony: I want you to tell me who’s still out there. I want the name of anyone who could help us find that override to stop the plans from melting down.
Dina: My husband kept all of this from me. I only helped.
Tony: That’s a bunch of crap! Now, we know you were just as involved as your husband. Listen, we’re quite aware that the only reason you’re helping us is because of your son. But believe me, it’s not too late for us to change our minds about how we treat him.
Dina: There are a few men whose names I heard Navi mention. They might know what you want. But I don’t know how to find them.
Tony: All right. Why don’t you start by writing their names down?
[Tony gives Dina a pen and a piece of paper. Still watching from the observation room, Sarah briefs Driscoll on the situation.]
Sarah: As far as we can tell, this Habib Marwan’s been controlling the override.
Driscoll: Jack’s on his way there now?
Driscoll: Curtis and his team are already at that building.
Sarah: I know, but we haven’t been able to reach him or his team members. He’s not answering his cell.
Driscoll: How far is Jack?
Sarah: About 15 minutes out.
Driscoll: Keep trying Curtis. Tell him Jack’s on the way. We have to coordinate the two and find that override.
[Sarah leaves the observation room. Through an earpiece, Driscoll instructs Tony.]
Driscoll: Tony, ask her about a man named Habib Marwan.
Tony: Who’s Habib Marwan?
Dina: I heard Navi speak of him a few times. He’s an engineer. Beyond that, I don’t know.
[At the observation room the intercom rings.]
Nurse: Ms. Driscoll?
Nurse: This is Nurse Carlson in the clinic. There’s a problem with your daughter, Maya. I think you should get down here as soon as you can.
Driscoll: I’ll be right there.
Nurse: Thank you.
[Sarah tries to reach Curtis on his cell phone again. At the office building, Ali sees Curtis’ cell phone ring but doesn’t answer it.]
Forbes: The CTU agent’s phone. What should we do?
Ali: Nothing. Let them wonder where he is. By the time they realize what’s happened it’ll be too late. Find out if Adam and Jason have disposed of the body. They should have been back by now.
Forbes: All right.
[Forbes leaves to check up on his henchmen. Ali watches a news report on TV.]
News Reporter on TV: We’re speaking of radiation. Can you tell us a bit more about that?
Guy on TV: Well, that’s right, that’s right. The government spokesman confirmed…
[Forbes finds his gunmen dead, and he calls Ali.]
News Reporter on TV: How well is the evacuation moving?
[Ali’s phone rings.]
Forbes: Ali, Adam and Jason are dead.
Ali: Did the agent escape?
Forbes: No. I checked the door. It’s still armed. He’s still on this floor.
Ali: Find him.
[Ali calls to notify Marwan.]
Ali: The CTU agent is loose on this floor.
Marwan: How did he escape?
Ali: He killed two of our men.
Marwan: Does he know the override is in the building?
Ali: I don’t think so, and he can’t get to it. We have the exits covered.
Marwan: Disconnect all the hard lines. He can’t be allowed to contact CTU.
Ali: I will.
[Curtis watches as Ali pulls the phone lines from the wall.]
[At the clinic, Maya is fighting with the doctor.]
Maya: No, no! You can’t keep me here!
Doctor: Maya. Maya.
Doctor: Please, we just wanna help you feel better.
Maya: You better get out of my face!
[Driscoll arrives at the clinic.]
Maya: What took you so long?
Driscoll: I thought she was given a sedative.
Doctor: We did. She’s fighting it.
Driscoll: Give me a few minutes with her.
Doctor: Sure. Ruth.
[The doctor and the nurse leave.]
Driscoll: Come on. Honey. I brought you here so that you could be near me, isn’t that what you wanted?
Maya: I want for us to go home.
Driscoll: Maya, we will, honey, but we can’t just yet. Honey.
[Maya starts tearing up medical reports.]
Maya: I don’t like these people here.
Driscoll: Maya. Maya. That’s not gonna make you feel better.
[Paul apologizes to Audrey, devastated by what he may have done. Audrey touches Paul’s shoulder tenderly. Jack notices the moment between them.]
[Tony briefs Driscoll on his findings.]
Tony: All right. So far every name Dina has given us has checked out as a mid-level cell member.
Driscoll: But what’s interesting is that Marwan, who she claims to have never met, is connected to everyone on this list. It looks like all roads lead to him.
Tony: This must be his operation, which means she definitely knows more than she’s telling us.
Driscoll: What do you wanna do to make her talk?
Tony: I just need you to give me a little bit of rope.
Driscoll: Do it.
[Tony enters the interrogation room.]
Tony: Why don’t you tell me about Habib Marwan?
Dina: I already told you.
Tony: No. You told me you never met him.
Dina: I haven’t.
Tony: Danny, could you come in here, please?
[Danny comes in the interrogation room.]
Tony: I’m gonna need all video and audio monitoring this room disconnected. Thank you.
Dina: I’m not a stupid woman. What are you trying to prove with this?
Tony: I’m not trying to prove anything. I just don’t want what about to say to be recorded.
[Danny disconnects the video and audio in the interrogation room.]
Dina: I don’t believe you.
[Tony grabs Dina.]
Tony: Open the door!
[Tony physically pushes Dina into the observation room.]
Tony: Everybody out. Get out, now! Everyone, Erin.
[Dina witnesses all the techies and Erin Driscoll as they leave the room. Tony takes Dina back to the interrogation room and pusher her against the wall.]
Tony: Unless you tell me the whole truth right now, that deal you made to save your son is over and he goes to prison for murder and treason!
Dina: You can’t do that. The President signed an agreement.
Tony: If that deal gets in the way of protecting this country, you think the President’s gonna stand behind it? He’s gonna tear it up, and your son goes to prison for the rest of his life. And I’ll tell you a little something about prison and based on the conditions of his confinement I’ll tell you right now – I give Behrooz about three months before he commits suicide. And by the way, I’m gonna make it my personal mission to make sure you’ll never hear word-one about what happens to him. Ever.
[Tony lets go of Dina and starts to leave.]
Dina: Wait. Habib Marwan is the man our cell reported to in the Unites States.
Tony: You aid your cell. How many other cells reported to him?
Dina: I don’t know.
Tony: But there are others.
Tony: How many?
Dina: I told you, I don’t know. The cells are not in contact with one another. Marwan thought it was safer that way.
Tony: What about the override? Is it in his possession right now?
Tony: Definitely? Why definitely?
Dina: Your programmers are trying to interfere with the meltdown sequence. Marwan is the only one capable of stopping them.
Tony: And he’s trying to do this by controlling it directly?
Tony: Where? Where?!
Dina: Somewhere in downtown.
Tony: The Rockland building?
[Tony calls to notify Jack.]
Sarah: Sarah Gavin.
Tony: Sarah, get me Jack Bauer on the phone.
Sarah: You got it.
[Tony leaves the interrogation room.]
Tony: Place her back in holding. Erin, Dina just confirmed Marwan’s got the override. He’s at the Rockland building.
Driscoll: Everyone, listen up! The address where Curtis is and where Jack Bauer is heading is the location of the override. I want every station to focus on this location. I want field teams ready. Rework your assault tactics on the building factoring in this new information.
[Sarah has Jack on the phone.]
Jack: Let me speak to Tony.
Sarah: Hold on a second. Tony, I’ve got Jack.
Tony: We have confirmation Habib Marwan’s controlling the override. He’s at the address you’re headed to.
Jack: What about Curtis?
Tony: No, we haven’t been able to reach him yet.
Jack: Have you changed the assault profiles?
Tony: We’re working on it. Look, Marwan’s gird of this. He can’t know we’re coming, or he’ll take off with the override. Also, we’re running out of time. We have about 20 minutes before these plants start to melt down.
Jack: OK. Tell Castle to prep for a low-profile assault. Tell him I’m on my way.
Tony: Copy that. Get me Castle.
[Marwan comes down to the floor where Ali is because he is worried about Curtis’s disappearance.]
Marwan: Have you found him yet?
Ali: Marwan, it was not necessary for you to come down.
Marwan: Not necessary?
Ali: We will find him.
Marwan: If I’m captured, it’ll end everything we’ve been working for.
Ali: We control the floor. He can’t get far.
Marwan: Don’t tell me what he can’t do. He’s already killed two of our men.
[Ali’s cell phone rings.]
Ali: What is it, Forbes?
[Marwan takes the phone from Ali.]
Marwan: Tell me you’ve got him.
Forbes: No, I’m sorry, Marwan. He may have gotten away.
Marwan: How is that possible? Ali says the floor is locked off.
Driscoll: Our people will be ready, sir, once we find it.
Keeler: All right. I don’t have to remind both of you of the consequences if we fail.
Heller: Everyone here understands what’s at stake, sir.
[Keeler shuts of the video feed. The intercom rings.]
Woman: Excuse me, Ms. Driscoll. Doctor Sanford’s on line 2.
Driscoll: Excuse me, sir.
Heller: I’ll meet you on the floor.
[Heller leaves the conference room. Erin takes the call from the doctor.]
Driscoll: Yes, Doctor?
Doctor Sanford: I’m sorry to bother you, but Maya’s acting out again.
Driscoll: What is she doing?
Doctor Sanford: She’s being abusive to my staff. She’s broken a few things. She doesn’t settle down. I’m gonna have to move her to a private hospital. We’re just not equipped to handle a patient like Maya.
Driscoll: All right. Don’t do anything. I’ll be right there.
[Driscoll heads toward the clinic.]
Sarah: Excuse me.
Driscoll: Is Edgar still online with NRC?
Driscoll: Find any alternate ways to stop the meltdowns?
Sarah: Not without the override, no.
Driscoll: What’s happening at the Rockland building?
Sarah: Castle just called in. His teams are spread out on the perimeter.
Driscoll: What about Curtis?
Sarah: He’s about to meet up with Jack inside the building.
Driscoll: Where are you monitoring?
Sarah: Station 3.
Driscoll: All right. I’ll be there in a few minutes. Make sure everything’s ready in comm if Jack and Curtis get their hands on the override.
[At the clinic, Maya is out of control.]
Maya: You’re a cruel person, do you know that?
Nurse: Maya. Maya, please. This is a restricted area. You have to stay in your bed.
Maya: Stay in my bed? What am I, a baby?
[Driscoll arrives at the clinic.]
Maya: What do you want, mother?
Driscoll: Don’t! Please, don’t treat these people disrespectfully.
Maya: Please, don’t tell me what to do!
Driscoll: I’ll stop telling you what to do when you stop behaving like a child.
Driscoll: You heard me. There are other people in this world besides you, and they have problems too. Now, are you gonna get a grip on yourself or am I gonna have to call security and have them restrain you?
Maya: You’re pathetic, you know that?
Driscoll: I will not allow you to talk to me like this! I will not!
Driscoll: And I will take you home, but I have something I have to finish first.
Driscoll: OK? Are we clear?
Driscoll: Good. That’s my girl.
[Driscoll leaves the clinic.]
[Jack and a team of agents ride the elevator up and meet Curtis.]
Jack: We’ve got a man down. Take the wall.
[Jack sees Curtis.]
Jack: Are you OK?
Curtis: Yeah. I overheard a phone conversation between Marwan and one of his men. We have less than 15 minutes.
Castle: How many are still alive?
Curtis: I’m not sure, but at least four.
Jack: Have your men secure the floor. Curtis and I are going after the override. Which way?
Curtis: This way.
Castle: What about backup?
Jack: No backup. We can’t let Marwan know we’re coming. What’s upstairs?
Curtis: IDS status systems. My guess is Marwan’s cell inserted a sleeper into the company.
Jack: He must have used their servers to download the virus into the nuclear power plants.
Curtis: By putting it back on IDS hardware.
Jack: Yeah. Take the door.
Curtis: All right. Clear.
[Jack and Curtis go up the stairs to IDS. A woman gets out of the office. They warn her.]
Jack: Step away from the door, Ma’am.
Curtis: I need you to exit the building. It’s an emergency.
Jack: You’re ready?
Jack: Let’s go.
[Jack and Curtis enter the office to find a sea of cubicles and workers. They have no idea which one is Marwan.]
Curtis: Did we get a description on him?
Curtis: He could be anyone.
[Jack and Curtis attempt to blend in on the busy floor as they search for Marwan. Jack sees a likely suspect and motions to Curtis. They move in. The phone in the man’s workstation rings. The guy is merely playing solitaire on his computer.]
Man: What’s up? What’s going on?
[Jack sees this and signals Curtis not to move in on him. Outside, a CTU agent spots Ali.]
Agent: Hold it!
[Ali sees the CTU agents on his floor and he rushes out. He quickly calls Marwan.]
Ali: Marwan, it’s Ali. We’ve been discovered.
[The agents run after Ali and fire. Marwan hears the gunshots over the phone.]
Solarz: Make sure all the exits are covered on the work floors.
Castle: Roger that. Last man down.
[Marwan grabs his gun, and looks around suspiciously. Jack notices this, and he approaches Marwan’s desk.
[Marwan sees this and fires his gun in the air. The office workers scream and flee. Marwan runs out.]
Jack: Stay down!
Curtis: Stay down! Stay down! Get out of the way! Stay where you are!
Jack: Stay down!
Curtis: I got the suspect!
Jack: You got him?
[Curtis notices the override.]
Curtis: Jack, I have the override!
Jack: Secure it! Call CTU now! Now!
[Jack notices Marwan running off.]
Jack: I got him!
[Jack takes off after Marwan. Curtis calls CTU.]
Curtis: Erin, it’s Curtis. I have the override. Put Edgar on.
Driscoll: Edgar! Line 1, it’s Curtis. He has the override.
Edgar: This is Edgar Stiles. Is the override logged in?
Edgar: Send it to channel 11.
Curtis: I can’t.
Edgar: What do you mean, “You can’t”?
Curtis: All the fields are right-protected.
Edgar: That’s not supposed to be. If you are directly plugged into the override, you should be able to do anything you want.
Curtis: I’m telling you, it’s locked up. What do you want me to do?
Agent: Ms. Driscoll, the clinic just called.
Driscoll: Tell them they’re gonna have to wait.
Agent: They said it was…
Driscoll: Tell them! Edgar, we’re out of time. If you’re gonna do something, do it now.
Edgar: Marwan was an engineer on the project. He must have modified the override to do this.
Sarah: The NRC screen is showing the meltdown stages already beginning.
Driscoll: Edgar, do something.
Edgar: Curtis, there must be a hot key.
Curtis: Yeah, there’s a lot of keys, Edgar. I can’t just try around the combinations. It’ll take too long.
Edgar: Press the function keys one at a time. The status line on the bottom will light up when you get to an active one.
Edgar: Good. Hold it down and press Escape.
Edgar: Try F5, Shift, Escape.
Curtis: OK, responding.
Edgar: Good. Set it to channel 11. Hurry up.
Sarah: Edgar, now they have three plants in meltdown initiation.
[Edgar does what he can on his end.]
Driscoll: Did you get it?
Edgar: I hope so.
[The reactors finally respond and begin to retreat on meltdowns.]
Curtis: It’s starting to respond.
Edgar: Yes! Yes!
Sarah: The temperature is dropping in all remaining power plants.
