24 (2001–2010): Season 1, Episode 4 - 3:00 a.m.-4:00 a.m. - full transcript

On the day of the California Presidential Primary, between 3:00 AM and 4:00 AM, Janet is left injured on the road, but later they decide to return and execute her. Nina is absolutely upset with Jack Bauer, but she seems to understand his reasons and together with Jamey they try to disclose the scheme and the conspirator in the CTU. However, District Director George Mason is called by Tony Almeida and shuts down the agency. Jack escapes of the lock-down to follow a lead in the key card and Nina and Jamie cover him in spite of being pressed by Mason. The secret service tells the assassination threat to David Palmer, and he tells his wife that a reporter called him telling that Keith had murdered the boy that raped Nicole, and his therapist George Ferragano would have told the truth to the journalist. Jack chases and captures a criminal and he tells that Kim has been kidnapped.

Are you stupid? What are
you doing in the street?

What are you, an idiot?


- Keep moving!
- No!

Come on, get her!

Shut up!

Put her down.

Keep moving.

Shut up! Let's go. Keep going.

Help me.

- We have to go back.
- There's no point, she's dead.

- You don't know that.
- Get in!

Take it easy!

Know what, you better decide
whose side you're on.

We can't leave her in the
middle of the street.


Nina, I know you're upset.

Of course I'm upset, Jack.
What do you expect?

I'm sorry.

The reason why I had to leave the office
is because I got a call from Walsh.

He was meeting another one
of our agents. Scott Baylor.

- He said he had evidence that
- That led you to me.

I know, Jack, but you should
have thought it through.

Nina, listen to me.

Richard Walsh is dead.


He was shot. I watched him die.

What is going on?

He was killed because he had proof...

...that people from our own agency
are behind the hit on Palmer.

- Who?
- I don't know yet.

Right before Richard died,
he gave me that keycard.

I'm hoping that's going to tell us.
Jamey's trying to break it down now.

- You trust Jamey?
- He did. I trust you.

Which means the three of us
have to work together.

From this point forward, we have to
assume that we can trust nobody else.

- I understand.
- Good.

- Are you all right?
- Yeah.

Work the card with Jamey.
I have to make a call.

Thank you.

Senator, Agent Pierce wanted to talk
to you as soon as you got back.

Fine. Just give me a minute.

It's important, there's a security issue.

A minute!

- Yeah.
- Did you find anything out yet?

David, it's barely been half an hour
since you told me about it.

Carl, I need you to find out
the source of this story.

Not first thing in the morning. Now!

I understand, but this can't be
done over the phone.

I have to talk to some people in person.

It's five after three.
I want to hear something by 4:00.

David, you've got to let me...

- Where were you?
- I went for a drive.

A drive. Alone, at this time of night?

I just needed to get away for a while.

Away from what, David?


Wait a minute.
They haven't told you, have they?

There has been an assassination threat.

That's what all the fuss is about?


I thought it was something serious.


I'm screening the passenger list,
something doesn't add up.

- What?
- 2B

Manifest shows an empty seat.


According to the ticketing file...

...first class was full,
plus there is a waiting list.

Why would the plane take
off with an empty seat?

Doesn't make sense.

This is good, let's work it.

- What time does Rayburn get in?
- 6:00.

Then wake him up, bring him in now.


We've got something off the keycard.

The encryption is complex.

I've asked Jamey to isolate sectors
and she's managed to extract one.

Just part of one, actually.

That's it, just an address. What's
that got to do with Palmer?

It doesn't say.

Crosscheck it with his
schedule for tomorrow.

He's not going anywhere near it.

Has he been anywhere near it
since he came to Los Angeles?


How about previous visits, connection
to family members, associates, anything?

I can check. It will take time.

No. Let's see what we can
peel off. Start in here.

Still just the address on San Fernando Road.

How long is it going to take to access
the next level? Minutes or hours?

- Hours most likely.
- We don't have hours.

I'll check out the address myself.

- You want some backup?
- No. I need you here.

- What's wrong?
- I don't know.

Suddenly I can't access
our decryption software.

Phones are down, too.

It's a lockdown.

It's Mason. Hide the keycard.

NI'll handle this.

Hello, Nina.

These men are with Internal Investigations.
You are now on official lockdown.

- On what authority?
- District Office.

Trying to stop an assassination, George.

Can't you find anything
better to do than this?

Two agents died tonight.

Lockdown is standard procedure
until we get some answers.

Where's Jack?

I don't know.

Station 2, coming your way.

Lockdown, nobody leaves.

- Lockdown, are you serious?
- No, I'm kidding.

I gotta get some work from my car.

You know the drill.

Fine, you take the keys.

All right, I assume you're all familiar
with lockdown procedures.

You remain in the building. All
communications will be monitored.

Any incoming call without secure
access codes will be blocked.

In the meantime, you can continue to work on
systems available to you 'til notified otherwise.

Anyone currently assigned...

Who called them in, Tony. You?

Yeah. Me.


Somebody had to. Jack's out of control.

Meaning what?

Two agents are down, Jack was
there when it happened.

You can't believe he had
anything to do with that.

To tell you the truth,
I don't know what to believe.

I'd hate to think this has
anything to do with me.

You think what you want.

All right, get comfortable,
could be here for quite a while.

He got past me.

All right, Nina, where'd he go?

I already told you, I don't know.

As soon as you tell me, we can
get things up and running.

I'm really sorry, George,
I can't help you out.

Me, too.

Senator, could I have a word with you?

I'm not sure you appreciate
the seriousness of this threat.

I get serious threats every
morning with my orange juice.

With all due respect,
this one's different.

It's a pro from overseas.

- Who's behind it?
- We don't know.

But as I'm sure you're aware...

...an airliner exploded about an hour and
a half ago outside LA. No survivors.

Are you saying there's some connection?

Again, we don't know.

- We're looking into it.
- What do we know?

That these are serious people,
and they want you dead, today.

What about my family?

The threat appears to be against you only.

But, of course, we'll increase
security for your family as well.

The main thing is your schedule.

Today is Primary Day, I'm not
gonna hide in my hotel room.

Understood. But we are
recommending some changes.

The breakfast, for example.

The breakfast is important.

The top labor leaders in the
state are going to be there.

We're trying to keep you alive, Senator.

And I'm trying to win an election.

Mom said you wanted to see me.

Wanted to make sure you're all right.
What are you doing up?

If I'm not sleeping by
3:00, I'm not sleeping.

Actually, I was gonna watch
some tube, you wanna join me?

Is anything on this time of night?

Nothing good.

I guess I'll pass.

Heard about the threat.

Don't worry about it.
They'll take good care of me.

They better.

Better get some rest.

I'm telling you, we have to
go back and get Janet.

Are you gonna tell your girlfriend
to shut her mouth or not?

She's probably dead, there's no point.

And what if she's not?
She might need help.

Why do always do what he tells you?

Why don't you think for yourself?

Just leave it alone, okay.

I can't, she's my friend.

You know, she may be right after all.

We should go back.

If she's alive, she can I.D. us.

We have to shut her up for good.

What? What are you saying?

You're gonna kill Janet?
Is that what you're gonna do?

Be quiet! Close her mouth! Now!

I'm not gonna let you
tie me up. Let me out.

Sounds like she's gonna tie you up.

Shut up!

I just hope the girls are still there.

Oh, no.

I don't believe this.

Stay in your car, sir. Back in the car.

Keep your hands where I can see 'em.

Do you have any idea
how fast you were going?

Yes. Officer, our daughters are missing.

We got a phone call, we are on our way
to pick them up. Please.

- Can I see your license and registration?
- Did you hear what I said?

Your license and registration, please.

I'm Teri Bauer, he's telling the
truth. We really could use your help here.

My daughter just phoned
from Platt's Auto Body.

Different last names.
One's married, one's not.

Out together in the middle of the night.

I called 911 fifteen minutes
ago, verify it if you want.

You know what, I'm gonna do that.

Yeah, why don't you do that.

All right.

Hey, listen, I asked you
to remain in the car.

I understand that.

Can we speed things up? Write us
tickets, we'll be on our way.

The woman asked me to verify the 911.
That's what I'm trying to do.

You know, You are a real piece
of work, you know that?

My daughter is in trouble.
We're finished here.

Take your hands off me!
What are you doing?

Take it easy, relax, everyone.

Get your hands off me!

Stop, don't do that.

Calm down. Take it easy.

Ma'am, he just disobeyed a direct
order from a police officer.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to
place him under arrest.

- You've got to be kidding me.
- Come on.

Oh, my God.

What was your name?

Excuse me!

You know Richard Walsh
was killed tonight.

Scott Baylor, too.

Did you know Jack was there
when it happened?

I don't know anything about it.

And you have no idea where he is right now?


- You're making a big mistake, Nina.
- No, you are.

When this lockdown is over, I'm gonna
have a little talk with the Double-I team...

...about some highly irregular banking transactions
which were traced to your account.

Trust me. The trouble Jack's in right now...

...my bank accounts won't even
raise an eyebrow.

He's going down, Nina. That doesn't
mean you have to go down with him.

True love is a beautiful thing, but...

...why go to extremes?

I know about the affair.

See, Jack talks about it all the time.

Sure he does.

How else would I know about it?

It is possible, that Jack's not the
shining knight you think he is.

Want to try again?

Where is Jack now?

This is Mary 1-3-8.

Need a transportation unit
at the Fifth Street bridge.


Please. Would you listen to me...

Repeat location with full request.

1-Mary-3-8. I need transportation
unit at the Fifth Street bridge

Copy, 1-Mary-3-8.

It's Teri. Leave a message after
the beep and I'll call you back.

Honey, it's me, I'm just checking
up on Kim. I'll call you back soon.

Don't move.

Damn it.

2-Adam-1-4, reporting shots fired at
18166 San Fernando Road.

Request backup.

2-Adam-14, backup's on the way.

18166 San Fernando.

Stop! Police.

- Hold it right there.
- Federal Agent!

Your badge, nice and slow.

Putting my gun down.

"CTU." What the hell is that?

Counter Terrorist Unit.

This guy is not waiting around for me.

You better shoot me or help. Decide now.

All right, I'll help you.

I'm picking up my gun.


You be careful with that gun.
I need him alive.

Throw me your flashlight.

Take cover!

2-Adam-1-4, backup's on the way.

2-Adam-1-4, copy.

Turn off your radio.

I wish you hadn't called for backup.


Because cops have to play by the rules.

I may have to break a few with this guy.

Who is he?

To sum it up, Jack leaves his wife...

...shacks up with you for a while...

...gets bored and then moves back home,
leaving you out in the cold.

My personal life is not your concern.

It is if it affects your work.

It doesn't affect my work.

How long you been with the Agency, Nina?
Six years, seven?

Seven years.

I remember when you first joined.

You were going places. Everybody knew it.

It hasn't quite happened
for you yet, has it?

You ever wonder why?

I've done all right.

But you could have done so much better.

You had a great reputation, once.

You know what your reputation is now?

Jack's flunky. His lap dog.

This is your chance to get
back on track, Nina.

He's a loose cannon. Rules don't
apply to Jack Bauer.

He does what he wants, when he wants and
he doesn't care whose life it affects.

He shot me with a tranq gun here
in the office, for God's sakes.

That's because you withheld
crucial information.

I was following orders.

Maybe he's following orders.
Orders you don't know about.

He violated lockdown and
left you holding the bag.

If he cared about you, he wouldn't
have put you in that position.

Let me ask you...

...would you have done that to him?

The fact is, I'm just asking you to
do your job and tell me where he is.

I don't know.

Get out!

Maybe she's dead after all.

We have to be sure.

Let's just put her in the van.



Shut up!

Move it.


Mason's going to want to talk to you.

What you want me to say?

Jack's made it clear that the three
of us work in confidence.

But doesn't Mason supersede Jack?


What we're doing came from Walsh.

George will say anything
to get you to talk.

Do not be intimidated by him.


Cross me.

The other building.

This place is like a maze.

All right, I've got a name.

George Ferragamo. Know him?

Yeah. I know the name.

You find anything else, leave a
message on the 802 number only.

Okay, you got it.

Thanks, Carl.

You've been spending an awful lot of time...

...behind closed doors, making phone calls.

Have I?

What's going on, David?

The phone call, earlier tonight,
from Maureen Kingsley...

She's digging up old history.

Bad history.

Just tell me.

She claims that Keith murdered
the boy who raped Nicole.


First, Lyle Gibson was no boy, he was 19.

Second, he killed himself.
The coroner's report proved it.

Maureen has new evidence.

What evidence?

I put Carl on it.

He came up with a name... George Ferragamo.

That's the therapist Keith
went to, what about him?

He claims that...

He's not claiming that Keith
confessed in therapy?

- Apparently.
- Well, then he's lying.

You've got to get our lawyers
on this right away.

Yeah, I know and I will.

- But you know...
- What is it, David?

I just don't understand it.

Maureen's always been very responsible.

One of the few real professionals left.

I'd call this unprofessional.


...you can't seriously think that
our son might be a killer?

No. Of course not.

- Look, I apologized.
- You don't get it, do you?

You've committed a serious crime.

Officer, please. Clearly,
he's upset. We both are.

If you could just give us
a break? Please?


1-Mary-3-8, go.

1-Mary-38, an emergency call...

...was placed at that location,
approximately 30 minutes ago.

Copy. Thanks.

That still doesn't justify you
disobeying a police officer.


Here's the backup. Ground units
are on their way.

I need him now to claim jurisdiction.

Where do you want me?

Keep him pinned down at the exit. I'll
try to go around the other side.

- Don't hit him.
- I won't.

Don't hit me, either.

This is the police.
Drop your weapon.

I told you to stay put.

Over here.

You want me, come and get me.

Don't do it! He'll kill both of us!

Don't do it!

Come out!

- Drop the gun!
- Don't!

Step out where I can see you,
and throw down the gun!

- Don't do it.
- Drop it!

I'm gonna drop the gun but you gotta relax!

Don't do it. He'll kill us both.

Shut up! Put down the gun! Drop it!

Speak English, asshole.

The gun is going down.
I'm putting down the gun.

The gun's going down.

Good work, throw me your cuffs.

Oh, my God.

I think it might be
up here, swing to the right.

Yeah, maybe.

There is someone up ahead, maybe they saw
something. Roll down your window.

Excuse me, could you tell me
what happened here, please.

It might involve our children.

You shouldn't let your children
come down here.

Yeah, I know that, but could you just
please tell me what happened?

Girl was hit by a car.

Ma'am, do you know where they took her?

St. Mark's is closest.

Was she alive?

She didn't look good.


Hey, it's Gaines.

Where's the other one?

She was a problem, so we killed her.

The body?

No one'll find it.

- She been any trouble?
- Not at all.

You're with me now.

Be good, you'll be back at
the mall in a day or two.

Be bad, and you won't. Clear?


Agent Farrell, come with me, please.


I've already told these men
I don't know anything.

Trying to protect Jack and Nina?

Don't be naive.


Let me tell you how the game is played.

First thing they do is to tell you that
you're the only one they can trust.

That's flattering and it makes you
trust them in return. Right?

Then they get you to do something
you shouldn't.

Say you don't know where
Jack went, for example.

Then the next thing you know, Jack's gone...

...Nina's stonewalling, and you're
in the hot seat. Sound familiar?

You're being used. I've seen
it a million times.

If you help me out, I'll help you out.

If you hold out...


Really? Good.

I'm on my way.

It seems our boy has surfaced. His name
popped up on a police frequency.

Not that I'm surprised.

Is he in trouble?

Off the record, just out of curiosity...

...what's so special about Jack Bauer?

All right, we found Bauer. We're
pulling out. Lockdown's over.

I hope you give some thought
to what we talked about.

Call it in as a DOA.

Pedestrian hit by vehicle.

Everything checked out, here you go.

What was her name?

Jessie Hampton.

You know anything about this guy?

No. But I got to take him for questioning.

Maybe you didn't notice,
but he killed a cop.

Of course I did, but there's
something else at stake here.

Not to me. Not to these guys.

All right.

Can I at least have a few minutes with him?


Thank you.

Get up.

If you tell me who you are,
I might be able to help you.

Don't let them take me.
If they do, I'm dead.

They seem in control.

I'm not worried about them.

Who are you worried about?

First you spring me, then I talk.

- That's not gonna happen.
- That's too bad...


Bauer? How do you know my name?

Time's up.

I know more than that.

If you ever want to see your daughter again,
get me out of this.

What do you know about my daughter?

I'm fine.
