President Palmer:
I can't wait for Ellis to get back to us. I've got to go.

Jack Bauer:
Senator, they're not going to let me continue to work here. I am technically still under arrest.

[pause]

President Palmer:
Come on.

[They exit the conference room, and enter the main CTU floor]

President Palmer:
Ryan!

Ryan Chappelle:
Yes, Senator?

President Palmer:
I understand you have Jack under arrest.

Jack Bauer:
I told the Senator I was being detained for questioning.

President Palmer:
There is an ongoing crisis that supersedes any charges that might be filed against him.

Ryan Chappelle:
But Senator...

President Palmer:
I want him reinstated to his previous position, effective immediately.

Alberta Green:
I'm sorry, sir, but you don't have the authority to make that decision.

Ryan Chappelle:
Alberta, please.

[Alberta stares at Palmer, then backs off]

Ryan Chappelle:
Sir, what you are asking isn't possible. The charges against Agent Bauer are serious. We would be held in contempt of agency regulations if we reinstated him without a hearing.

Jack Bauer:
Ryan, you don't have to reinstate me. Not permanantly. Look, nobody here has as much information about this situation as I do. Give me provisional status, just till the end of the day. Then you can take me back into custody, do whatever you want.

[pause; Chappelle looks at Palmer]

Ryan Chappelle:
Fine, Jack. You work the case out of CTU, but you answer to me. Good luck with your campaign, Senator.

[Chappelle walks off]

Jack Bauer:
Thank you.

[Jack stares at Green. Palmer then pulls Jack aside]
