Vincent, Jack Bauer. You planning on seeing Kimberly tonight?
No way, man. We broke up, you know that.
I just wanted to make sure you knew that.
Chill, man. I don't know where she is. You've got my word.
That's a real comfort, Vincent, knowing I've got your word.
Tony. I need detailed background on everyone on Senator Palmer's staff now.
Because I think this is about him and I want us to be prepared.
If it leaks out that we're screening Senator Palmer, people might think it's because he's black.
Well, it is because he's black. It makes him the most likely target.
George. I need you to do me a favor. I need you to call your boss so I can get clearance on the identification of the source.
I thought we just agreed that it didn't matter.
Yeah, but I still have to call Walsh and tell him I did everything I could. I would like to cover my own ass.
Jack, you're finally learning how to play the game.
You can look the other way once, and it's no big deal, except it makes it easier for you to compromise the next time, and pretty soon that's all you're doing; compromising, because that's the way you think things are done. You know those guys I busted? You think they were the bad guys? Because they weren't, they weren't bad guys, they were just like you and me. Except they compromised... Once.
(Referring to Janet York) Well, err, maybe she wasn't quite dead.
Well, let me tell you Dan; You're either dead, or you're not dead. There's no such thing as 'sort of dead'. Here, let me show you. (Shoots Dan in the chest)
(To Rick) You've just been promoted, congratulations.
You probably don't think that I can force this towel down your throat. But trust me, I can. All the way. Except I'd hold onto this one little bit at the end. When your stomach starts to digest it, I pull it out. Taking your stomach lining with it. For most people it would take about a week to die. It's very painful.
Hey! Almeida. I'm on your side. Nina oughta be here right now, what does Jack need her for? You're busting your ass without any resources because she felt like taking a ride with him. If that works for you, great…
You know what works for me? You keeping out of my personal business, that works for me!
