24 (2001–2010): Season 1, Episode 10 - 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. - full transcript

Jack is on the run after escaping custody. Nina receives a phone call from Teri and tries to trace the call. Palmer still wants to go ahead with the press conference despite objections. Alberta Green temporarily takes over as Director of CTU.

There are terrorists planning to
assassinate a presidential candidate.

My wife and daughter have been kidnapped.

And the people that I work with
may be involved in both.

I'm Federal Agent Jack Bauer.
This, is the longest day of my life.

This is Dave Thompson
in Jet Copter Three.

It's just 9:00 on Primary Day
in Southern California.

Freeways are looking pretty good.

Usual delays in the Sepulveda Pass
southbound, but it loosens up at Culver.

We'll have a complete report in six minutes.
Back to you, Bill.

Thanks, Dave.

In the news, we haven't learned
any more about the incident...

...at the San Clarita power plant where
Senator Palmer was rushed out this morning.

We're told the Senator was unharmed...

...but Secret Service and the FBI
haven't released any new information.

- Get the drip started.
- I'm on it.

Find me a pulse.

I've got a pulse. 140/30.

Pupils not reactive.
Respiration shallow. 48.

Let's start two large-bore IVs, bilateral.

She's lost a lot of blood.

- We should start the other line.
- All right.

Is it in?

Ready, one, two, three.



Excuse me.

- I've got the door.
- Okay.


...I'm sorry to tell you that Jamey Farrell
tried to commit suicide a few minutes ago.

Fortunately, she's still alive...

...and they're doing everything they
can to keep her that way.

I know it won't be easy to put this out
of our minds, but we have no choice.

There's still reason to believe
Senator Palmer's life is in danger...

...which means we all have
to get back to work, now.

- You wanna look at this?
- Not now.

Call Jamey's mom, explain what happened.
Have her pick up Kyle.

CTU, Myers.

Hey, it's me. Hold on.

- Okay.
- Did you get the car?

Yes, and I got the care package, too.

- Jack, Teri called.
- What?

About 20 minutes ago.

Where is She? What'd she say?

I don't know. She barely had time to
say her name before she got disconnected.

What happened?

She didn't call back and when I tried
to redial, the number was blocked.

She sounded Okay. She sounded all right.

The police have thrown a net
over this entire area.

There's nothing I can do to help
Teri until I get through it.

Maybe you should think about
turning yourself in.

- Tell your side of the story.
- No.

Gaines will keep Teri and Kim alive as
long as he thinks I can be useful to him.

If I'm in custody, I won't be.

Scan the police frequencies, see if you can
locate any of these roadblocks for me.

All right.

Just a minute.


Jamey give you anything else?


...Jamey tried to kill herself.

Jack, did you hear me?


Yeah, you said she tried?

We sent her to County,
but it doesn't look good.

Are you sure it was a suicide attempt?

Yeah, she slit her wrists.

Where was her son Kyle?

He didn't see anything.
We've already called Jamey's mom.

She's on her way to pick him up.

Okay, send someone down to County to
question Jamey in case she makes it.

Right now she's still our best
source of information.


- Damn it!
- What's wrong?

They set up a road block at Montana.

Nina, I could have used the heads-up here.

I'm sorry, they must have set it up
before I started scanning.

Find me another route.

All right, give me a second to
pull up LA traffic.

You go to the window. You let me
know if somebody comes.

Tony, Line 3, can you get it?


Okay, it looks like roadblocks
aren't your only problem.

They sent a description of you to
all the units in the area.

Nina, it's Teri Bauer.

Jack, hold on a minute.

- Teri?
- Nina, thank God.

Where are you?

I don't know, but I got ahold of a phone.

Okay, is Kim with you? Are you all right?

Yeah, I'm fine, Kimberly's fine.
Do you know where Jack is?

Yeah, listen, I'm gonna connect
you with him right now.

Leave the line open as long as you
can so we can set up a trace.

- Do you understand?
- Yeah.

Have Milo set up the trace on Line 3.

Jack? I've got Teri.

- Patch her through.
- Mom, someone's coming.

He's here!


What do you want from us?

I think I left my phone in here.
You seen it?

No, I haven't.

Jack, I've muted our side
of the conversation.

Have you set up a trace on the call?

Yeah. I told Teri to leave the line open.

Good. Keep our side muted. I don't
want to give away this phone.

You better not be lying, bitch.


They moved everything around in here.
Damn it!

Rick, you see it anywhere?


Got anything on that trace?

Latitude is somewhere north of the 10.

I should have a rough longitude
in a couple of minutes.

Triangulating the longitude is trickier.

This is Dave in Jet Copter 3.
We're seeing some congestion...

...in North Hollywood at Verdugo around
the Grant Street Elementary School.

Senator Palmer is due to make an
appearance there, and it looks like...

...supporters and media are
hoping to catch a glimpse...

...of the presidential candidate, who apparently,
is not letting this morning's incident...

...interfere with his schedule.

I don't understand the rationale
behind it. No, listen to me.

Why? Why defend something that
you don't need to defend?

Maureen Kingsley is not coming
out with the story today.

- She will.
- We don't know that.

Look, if not now, tomorrow.

If not her, someone else.
Our son is accused of murder.

- The story's too big to hide.
- Mike.

He's right, Sherry. We need to control
when and how this story comes out.

One hour ago, someone tried
to kill my husband.

That bought us time and we should use it.

The assassination attempt might
even work for us...

...if we break the story about Keith.

It might put the public in a more
forgiving frame of mind.

- You're making a mistake.
- It's my mistake to make.

No, it isn't, David, because you
didn't get here by yourself.

Do not go against me on this, Sherry!

Promise me.

I can't promise you anything.

Jack, we've got a preliminary read
on the trace. It's a pretty big area.

I'm listening.

North of the 10, east of the 405.

Did you hear me?

Yeah, that's a start.
Now get me through these cops.

Your best bet is east on Thurston.

I don't think you should move yet.

I'll get through the net somehow.

Nina, just stay on that trace and
help me find my family, please.

Tony, open an extra socket for me on 1.

Did you hear me?

Come here for a second.
You gotta check this out.

What is it?

I was checking Jamey's disk to see
if I could find any e-mails.

She was careful about cleaning up,
but she didn't have time for this one.

That's from this morning.

To an anonymous recipient.

- What about the encryption?
- I'll get Milo on that.

But you can still see the subject.

Ted Cofell. Find out who he is.

I'm busy.


I need you to do something for me.

I'm working on this trace.

You'll have to do two things at once.
I need this e-mail decrypted, all right?

CTU, Almeida.



Nina, that was the clinic.

Jamey didn't make it.

Mom, it's clear. They're gone.

Hello, Jack? Are you there?

Teri, it's Nina. You okay to talk?
I'll put you through to Jack.

Jack, I've got Teri.

- Teri?
- Jack? Can you talk? Where are you?

I'm on my way to get you out of
there, sweetheart. You okay?

- Yeah, I'm hanging in there.
- Good, thank God.

Nina's tracing the cellular signal
to your location.

How long will that take?


Twenty minutes.

Milo's narrowed the signal
to four repeater antennas...

...which is still about 500 square miles.

Oh, God.

Teri, don't worry, we're closing in on it.

Please pull over to the curb.


I'm still here, honey.

Is there anything you can tell us
that might help us find you?

I know we're at least a few miles
out of the city.

This is gonna take me about a minute.
Hold on.

11-8-19. Code 6 North.

11-8-19. North sector. Nothing so far.

Jack, are you all right?

- Jack?
- Yeah, I'm fine.

It would really help us out
if you could tell us...

...everything you know about where you are.

I don't know much. They blindfolded
me when they picked me up.

- Where was that?
- On Mulholland, near Coldwater.

How long did it take for you to get
from there to where you are now?

I'm not sure. Half an hour?

Surface streets or freeways?

- Freeways, I think.
- Milo.

Already on it.

Anything else, any sounds or smells?

Can you hear cars or airplanes? Anything?

No, it's pretty quiet.

There's hills, and some eucalyptus trees.

It may be the North Valley,
somewhere inland.

- It's pretty remote.
- That helps.

I've got it narrowed down to three sectors.

The closer we get, the longer each
iteration's gonna take.

What does that mean?

It's just techno-talk, Teri.

Don't worry, we're making good progress.

Jack, are you there?

Yeah, baby, I'm still here.

Teri, I'm gonna find you. I promise.

I know you will.

Nina's tracing the call right now.

We're gonna have your location
in a couple of minutes...

...but it's important you don't
hang up that phone, okay?

Even if you can't talk,
don't hang up the phone.

Sweetheart, are you sure you're all right?

They didn't hurt you, did they?

I'm fine. So is Kim.

- Is she there with you?
- Yeah, she's right here.

Put her on the phone
so both of you can hear.



Hey, sweetheart.

You okay?

Yeah. Who are these guys?
Why are they doing this?

I don't know honey, but I'm
gonna find out, I promise.

Right now I just want to make sure that
you and Mommy get home safely, okay?

Honey, look...

...I know I haven't always been
there when you've needed me.

You don't have to do this.

I want both of you to know
that I'm here for you now.

I love you more than
anything in the whole world...

...and I promise you, I am gonna
get you both out of there, okay?

So no matter what happens, don't give up.

We're a family, we're gonna get
through this like a family.


Sweetie, don't forget,
I'm coming to get you.

Sweetheart, stay on the phone.
I'm gonna be right back.

- Honey, you still there?
- Mom, he's coming back.

Jack, I need to get off the phone.
He's coming back.

Who's coming? Teri, keep the line open.

Dude, it's just a phone.

It's how Gaines gets ahold of
me when he needs me.

You already looked here.

Where is it?

I told you, I don't know.

- Where's my phone?
- She doesn't know either.

Stay away from her.
Stop it! What are you doing?

Don't you touch her!

Can't speak for yourself?

I don't know where your stupid...

Don't hurt her. Come on! Take it easy!

- Nina, what's going on?
- I don't know.

The signal's dying.

Who'd you call?

Who is this?

I'm the last thing that you'll ever see if
anything happens to my wife or my daughter.

Where you going?

To tell Gaines they called for help.

What do you think he's gonna do when
he finds out they used your phone?

Jack, get us out of here, please. Hurry!

Teri, I'm going to find you. I promise.

Think about it. They called on your phone.


Tell me you got that trace.

We didn't get it.

We've located Bauer's car.

Nina, it's Jack. You still there?

What's happening, Jack?

I got a car.
How close did Milo get with the trace?

Twenty-five mile radius.

- Damn it, that's not good enough.
- Sorry.

Look, I've gotta do something. Come on,
Nina, anything, please help me out.

What about Jamey?

She didn't make it, Jack.

I don't believe this. Nina, please,
I've got to find them.

Hold on.

Did you get anything yet
with that e-mail address?

- Yeah, it's coming through now.
- Patch into Line 2.

Hey, Jack, it's Tony.

I found something on Jamey's
computer that might be a lead.


The name, Ted Cofell.
I did a search of LA...

...and found Ted Cofell as a CEO of
an investment banking firm in Burbank.

That's it?

- So far..
- There's something..

Hold on. Speak one at a time.
Tony, you go first.

So far that's it. We have Milo
decoding the e-mail right now.

Fine. I'm gonna head to Cofell's office.
What's the address?

It's 21500 Riverside Drive.

21500 Riverside Drive, fine.

Tony, Gaines is gonna probably
try to contact Jamey.

He doesn't know she's dead. Make
sure you keep it that way, okay?

Nina, you help me navigate through traffic.

All right.


Hello, Ira.

Mr. Drazen. Where are you?

Flying into Los Angeles.

I'd like to know why the David Palmer
situation hasn't been taken care of.

I don't have to tell you, my brother
and I are very disappointed.

We had some bad luck, that's all.

Bad luck or bad management, we have
every reason to void the contract.

There's no need for that.

To have Jack Bauer and David Palmer
in the same city on the same day...

...and let them slip through our
fingers would be intolerable.

Don't worry. Palmer will be dead by
the end of the day, just as we agreed.


We still have Bauer's family as leverage.

We'll find Bauer and use him,
just like we did before.

If plan 'A' doesn't work,
you should have a plan 'B'.

Not plan 'A' recycled.

Like I said, we still have his family.

If we sit tight, there's a good
chance Bauer will find us.

Then we'll make him the
scapegoat, just as before.

My brother wants me to assess
the situation personally.

I land in half an hour.
I'll join you by 10:30.

Suit yourself.

If I don't see a substantial
improvement in things in the next hour...

...I'm going to ask Mr. Cofell
to empty the accounts.

You will get zero.

Mr. Drazen...

You may be in this for the money,
but for my family, it's personal.

- I realize that.
- Then realize this.

If things continue to go wrong...

...the money isn't all you'll lose.
You understand?

- This is Sherry Palmer.
- Hello, Sherry.

I'm sure you're just as surprised
as I am that I'm calling you.

I'm only surprised you waited this long.

I assume you're calling because David
still plans to make the announcement...

...about Keith, and you can't stop him.

So, now you want me to stop him?

You've lost whatever influence
you once had with David...

...so I'm sure that's gonna be a problem.

But you might be able
to stop Maureen Kingsley.


I don't know. I'm sure she has
a weakness somewhere.

Look, Carl, you don't need to ask
me for any advice on stuff like this.

As a matter of fact, I've already taken
care of the evidence against Keith.

Taken care of it? How?

That's all you really need to know.

I'm not sure I'm understanding you.

You don't have to.

But if we give David a way out
of this, make sure he takes it.

- Got it.
- Send it to me.

A wire transfer to Ira Gaines at 2:10 this
morning from a Swiss account: $1,000,000.

What does Cofell have to do with this?

I don't know. Maybe it was his money.

It makes sense. Cofell's in finance.

Yeah, it's Jack.

Jack, looks like we have the right Cofell.

Good. What have you got on him?

All right. Born in Philadelphia.
Went to Colgate.

MBA from UCLA in '88.

Worked in investment banking, started
his own firm about five years ago.

Net worth is in excess of $35 million.

Okay, good, patch me through to his office.

Cofell Enterprises.

Hi, is Ted there, please?

Mr. Cofell's in a meeting.
May I take a message?

I'm a friend from business school.

I'm in town today. I was hoping
we could get together.

As soon as he's out of the meeting,
he's going out of town.

That's too bad. How much longer will he
be in his office?

He plans to leave by 10:00.
Would you like to leave your name?


Tell Milo to be ready
in case Teri calls back.

Nina, Division gave me a heads-up.

They're sending in a provisional
replacement for Jack.

They didn't waste any time, did they?

Who is it?

Alberta Green.

Didn't she work for you over at Division?

Yes, she did. When's she coming?

Scheduled to arrive at 9:45.


CTU, Myers.

Cofell's there, but he's leaving at 10:00.

I'm passing Culver. What's the
traffic like moving east?

Hang on, I'll check.

Jack, there's another thing.

They're bringing in Alberta Green
to run things.

She's gonna be here in a few minutes.

Damn it! Whatever, look, we'll deal with it.

Tell me how to get out of this traffic.

You'll hit gridlock in about two miles.

How is Riverside?

It's a little better.
You might want to get off.

I'm getting off at the next exit.
I'm gonna cut over.

Mom, tell me what happened
between you and Dad.

Why did he move out?

Kim, let's not talk about this now.

Why not?

I mean, we both know
there might not be a later.

- Kim
- Please, Mom.

I wanna know.

I think your father is the
best man that I've ever known.

But he can be difficult...

...and his job doesn't help.

You remember a couple of years ago,
when he went away for a few weeks?

Yeah, for some.. training thing.

That's what he told us,
but I'm sure it was a mission.

He wouldn't say, and maybe he
probably couldn't.

Anyway, when he came back, he was...


He was distant and preoccupied...

...and other times he was just angry.

He did everything he could
to keep it from you...

...but things between us weren't so great.

I suppose I could have been more patient.

So we decided to try being apart.

But it didn't work.



I just want us to be together again.

Cofell is taking a private plane and we got
a copy of his flight plan from the FAA.

He's going to Denver.

- What does that tell us?
- We're not sure.

We're checking people in the Denver area
who have known terrorist connections.

So far we haven't got much.

- Hello, Nina.
- Hello, Alberta.

Nice to see you. You know why I'm here.


Gather everyone around, will you?

Could everyone stop what they're
doing for just a moment?

I have something to tell you.

I'd like to introduce you to Alberta Green.

Jack Bauer has been relieved of his
duties here indefinitely.

In the meantime, Alberta's been
appointed Acting Director of CTU.

Good morning. Things have been
out of control here today.

Starting now, they're back in control.

Most of you know an attempt was made
on Senator Palmer at 8:00 this morning.

You may not know that Jack Bauer was
apparently involved in that attempt.

The nature of his involvement isn't clear...

...but he has escaped custody,
and is considered a fugitive.

We therefore have two objectives:

Find Jack Bauer, and make a quick
and accurate assessment...

...of the threat, if any,
facing Senator Palmer.

I know most of you have been
up more than 24 hours.

Too bad.

Nobody so much as yawns until
we accomplish our objective.

If anyone has a problem with that,
now would be a good time to resign.

Good. Let's get back to work.

Specific assignments will be confirmed
or revised within the hour.

Obviously this is awkward, but we'll
get through this. We're pros.

Of course.

We'll talk later.

Hold on a minute.

Is it true you played basketball?

I sure did. Georgetown.

My daddy says Georgetown sucks!

I need to have a little talk
with your daddy.

My daddy also says there will never be
a black president in this country.


Would you give your daddy a message for me?

You tell him I understand where he's
coming from, but he's wrong...

...and I'm gonna prove it.

- Tell him that, okay?
- Okay.

I have Frank Ames on the phone.

- What does he want?
- He wouldn't tell me.

I'll call him back.

He said it was urgent.

He's your biggest contributor.
You can't just blow him off.

I am very sorry. Would you
excuse me for a minute?


Frank? This is kind of a bad time.

Well, it's about to get worse.

What do you mean?

I just got out of a meeting with Carl,
Phil Tuttle and Bob Jorgensen.

A meeting about what?

George Ferragamo, your son's therapist.

I know the three of you have given a
lot of money to my campaign...

...but that doesn't make my son's
therapist your business.

It is when he's accusing your son of murder.

He's a problem, and Tuttle and
Jorgensen don't like problems.

They told Carl to get rid of it,

I've played hardball all my life,
but this...

What are you trying to say?
They told Carl to...

Listen, I am washing my hands of
this and your whole campaign.

- Frank!
- I am out of it, David.

What was that about?

I need to talk to Carl, now.

You wanted to see me?

- Give us five minutes.
- Certainly.

I don't know where Jack is. I haven't
talked to him since this morning.

Since he escaped from
custody with a hostage?

- That's right.
- I'm not sure I believe you.

If you tell me where he is...

...I'll do what I can to make sure
nothing heavy falls on you.

I told you, I don't know.

From what I've heard, there are very
few secrets between you and Jack.

Jack doesn't trust anyone, including me.

Getting involved with Jack was one of
the biggest mistakes I've ever made.

Not that I'm judging you, Nina, but
there's a right way to do these things.

Let them screw you,
don't let them screw you over.

If you don't have any more pearls of
wisdom, I'd like to get back to work.

By all means.

Cofell Enterprises.

Hey, it's Ted's friend from
business school again.

I'm sorry, but I'm in the building.

I was hoping I could come up
and say a quick hello.

Is Ted gonna be there
for a few more minutes?

I'm sorry, sir, he's on his way out.

What floor is Cofell Enterprises on?


Thank you.

- Could you call my car please?
- Okay.

I should head to the airport
a little early today.

The radio said the traffic
was a little slow.

Mr. Cofell, a friend of yours from
business school is on the way to see you.

- On his way up now?
- I tried to stop him.

He say who it was?

He didn't give his name. He's
probably trying to sell you something.

- Don't give him my cell number.
- Have a good trip.

- Don't forget your phone.
- Great.

I just wanted to let you know that
Mr. Cofell is on his way down.

Excuse me, where's Mr. Cofell?

I'm so sorry, he just stepped
into the elevator.

Where was he going?
Down to the parking garage?

It's all right. Never mind.

There's nothing to worry about.

There's a 30-second reset, then we'll
continue down automatically.

It's probably a false alarm anyhow.

- Excuse me, are you Mr. Cofell's driver?
- Yeah, that's right.

I'm a Federal Agent.

- Where are you going today?
- To the airport.

On what business?

Look, I'm just his driver.

- Is there a problem here?
- Come with me a second.

- Thank you.
- Have a nice day, Mr. Cofell.


Mark, could you turn the air
on back here, please?

Then they began to laugh.

They began to say things like,
'You remember him, don't you?'

Doesn't he live with you?
Yeah, sure he does.'"

Are you okay?

Yeah, I'm fine. It's nothing.

- He hurt you, didn't he?
- No, honey. I'm fine.
