    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The time of the bombing in Chicago is given as 8:03 am Central Standard Time. The date of the bombing is September 12th, which in present day is during Central Daylight Time in Chicago.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Cyrus Miller: Within hours of the attack, we were getting workable intelligence that a Saudi Arabian fundamentalist group was behind it. The plutonium used had been traced to a reactor in Mebina, and a Saudi militant had been spotted in Montreal, where the van containing the bomb had been rented the week before. It was a slam dunk, intelligence-wise. The joint chiefs were recommending a retaliatory strike. But the President didn't think it was enough. He said, if history teaches us anything, it's that you don't invade a sovereign nation, without irrefutable proof. But we'd been attacked. And no one wanted to sit around and do nothing

      • Narrator: He never saw it coming, and he was never the same.

      • Cyrus Miller: Some of America's greatest moments have occured when our leaders have had the wisdom, and benevolence, not to act.

      • Cyrus Miller: It's human to want someone to blame and it's American to want to feel that someone's throat ripped in your hands.

      • Nate: Could you, um... would you possibly consider getting me like a bath towel? Preferably a really big one.
        Courtney: Oh, I was thinking a wash cloth.

      • Marcus: (to Jack) You're a legend in your own mind, aren't you?

      • Cyrus Miller: (voice over while showing Jack) The true power of a nuclear bomb is not nuclear, it's psychological. That kind of attack triggers a primal fear in people. Some are paralyzed by it...most are enraged. It's the type of rage that starts as a whisper and builds to a scream.

    • NOTES (3)

      • The character Cyrus Miller is credited as the National Security Advisor (2041-2044) for President McCallister.

      • This episode marks the return of Jack & Bobby after a short hiatus. In December through most of January the WB network decided to air the reality series Big Man on Campus and deflect away from J&B reruns which don't perform well in the ratings at this point.

      • This episode begins Mike Erwin's recurring role as character Nate Edmonds, Courtney's (Jessica Pare) love interest in the series. Mike Erwin was a recurring character on the other WB show Everwood during its first two seasons, playing the character of "Colin Hart".

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Jack: Isn't there something you can give me? They shot Curt Schilling up with something.

        Curt Schilling is a starting pitching for Boston Red Sox, whose heroics in the 2004 American Championship Series and World Series were legendary.

        After he dislocated the tendon in his ankle in the 2004 Wild Card series his availability for the rest of the post-season was doubtful but the Red Sox medical staff devised a special surgical procedure that allowed him to take the mound. Despite blood seeping through the sutures, leaving his sock bloody, he pitched a terrific game 6 in the ALCS and game 1 in the World Series, allowing the Red Sox to win both games and helping the Red Sox win their first World Series in 86 years.
