  • Quotes

    • Andrew: Who are you?
      Hasan: I'm that man that's going to kill you if you don't follow my instructions.

    • Navi: We've spent years planning for this; waiting for this day to come. Now it's here and you have compromised everything.
      Behrooz: [Debbie] didn't see anything. I made sure of it.
      Navi: We'll see how much she knows. Call her and tell her to come here.
      Behrooz: Father, please don't do this, this is not necessary.
      Navi: I decide what's necessary, not you!

    • Ronnie: So, what's it like working in DC?
      Jack: For the most part, we solve problems in theory that will never come into play. You wouldn't be interested.
      Ronnie: Then why do it?
      Jack: I've got my reasons.

    • Driscoll: Has it occurred to you that we might be farther along if you trusted me half as much as you trust Jack Bauer?
      Chloe: You know what, Miss Driscoll? I'm really not in the mood to play the part of the scared student in the principal's office. I came to you with important information that my friend Andrew gave to me, and you chose to not respond to it.

    • Driscoll: It's a simple job, Ronnie. You pick up the subject and you bring him in.
      Ronnie: Bauer has not been in the field for a year and a half, okay? That has consequences! It's my ass that's...
      Driscoll: (interrupting) Which is why I need you to keep him on a tight leash. It's not optional; it's an order.

    • Ronnie: Okay, so let me understand this: Bauer illegally shoots a suspect and now you are going to let him back in the field?

    • Driscoll: I'm having you locked up for impeding my investigation.
      Jack: You do that, and I'll tell the President that you had Sherek in custody over half an hour before Secretary Heller was even kidnapped, and you couldn't break him. I did!
      Driscoll: Are you threatening me, Jack?
      Jack: I am asking you to let me help rescue Secretary Heller.

    • Chloe: I may have a way to find Heller.
      Jack: I'm being detained, why are you telling me?
      Chloe: Because I don't think Driscoll is handling this the right way and I don't trust her, I trust you.

    • Curtis: Chloe, I need you to move everything from the train bombing to the secondary server.
      Chloe: I did that already.
      Curtis: Good. Then re-key the databases so that the kidnapping and the bombing are synched up as well.
      Chloe: I did that too.
      Curtis: What haven't you done?
      Chloe: I haven't opened a pipe to the Army Criminal Division yet.
      Curtis: Do it.
      Chloe: I'm on my way to.

    • 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 accordance with our laws. Because we have nothing to hide, the world would have full access to these proceedings.

    • Terrorist: Take off your clothes.
      Heller: You first.

  • Notes

    • The scenes involving the compound where Heller and Audrey are held captive were filmed at Fort McArthur, located in San Pedro, California.

    • During several commercial breaks throughout the premiere event, loyal 24 fans got a sudden burst of nostalgia when former cast regular Dennis Haysbert (President "David Palmer") appeared on their TV screens. But Haysbert was a long way from his role as Commander-In-Chief, acting instead in his capacity as the official spokesman for Allstate Insurance. Allstate remained as one of the primary sponsors of the show throughout its fourth season.
