    • Gregory: The degree to which well-dressed, seemingly sensible human beings carry on about 24 continues to astonish me. [The cast] had an after-hours tour of the Supreme Court.

    • Gregory Itzin: (on his role as President Charles Logan in 24) I tried to do that because at the beginning, I had high hopes that I would be a President to admire.
