Aired Monday 8:00 PM Feb 27, 2006 on FOX



  • Trivia

    • Carlos Bernard (Tony) does not appear in this episode.

    • After Jack enters Christopher's office, he's tasered. Soon after, he's already waking up. If this is a real-time show, how did Christopher drag Jack to the desk, grab the gun, wake up Jack in only one second?

    • While arguing with Audrey, Lynn says "My people are not going to chase that white elephant". He means "wild goose", as a white elephant is an expensive liability, not a false trail.

    • After the motorcade attack fails, Novick says, "We need to prepare ourselves for the terrorists' retaliation." However, the closed-captioning says "...Bierko's retaliation" which is an error since since at this point they don't know the name of the head terrorist.

    • A secret service agent walks into Logan's office and hands Mike a phone while the two men are talking about President Suvarov's imminent death. Shouldn't he have been just a little bit more suspicious?

    • Omicron's building is obviously not very secure. Despite Jack needing to check in with security, the guard never gave Jack a badge, or screened Jack into the building. It appears that he walked straight through.

  • Quotes

    • McGill: (referring to Suvarov) My people are not going to chase that white elephant.

    • Henderson: So who is the honcho over at CTU now?
      Jack: Bill Buchanan.
      Henderson: Buchanan? What a stiff! No wonder why everything is going to hell over there. You guys keep getting rid of everyone who can do their job.

    • Henderson: The one thing that hurts me is that you didn't believe me.
      Jack: You made it impossible to believe you.

    • Curtis: If you try to carry out that command, I will draw my weapon.

    • Henderson: (to Jack) Just for the record, I never believed you were dead.

  • Notes

    • Jane Espenson, Audrey's alias when calling Henderson's secretary, is a real person, best known for her writing on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. David Fury, who is a Co-Executive Producer on 24, also worked with Espenson on Buffy and slipped her name in as an in-joke.

    • Beginning with this episode, Sean Astin is credited as Special Guest Star.

    • Throughout Season 5, Peter Weller receives the "and" credit.

  • Allusions

    • It is revealed that Jack implicated Henderson in an Internal Affairs investigation resulting in his resignation for taking bribes, a reference to Season 1 when Jack was harassed by Teddy Hanlin for implicating his partner Seth Campbell and 'two others' for bribe taking. Henderson was one of the other two.

    • Henderson makes reference to Nina Myers and George Mason, two main characters from Season 1 of the series.
