24 (2001–2010): Season 1, Episode 9 - 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. - full transcript
On the day of the California Presidential Primary, between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM, Jack Bauer is arrested but escapes handcuffed from the secret service. He hijacks a car with the waitress Lauren, goes to a construction and talks to Nina and Tony. Sherry calls Maureen and promises the story of the assassination attempt and conspiracy in the government if she postpones the news about Keith. Teri is sexually abused by one of the kidnappers to protect Kim and she steals his cellular. Tony and Nina press Jamey and she tries to commit suicide.
...terrorists are plotting to
assassinate a presidential candidate.
My teenage daughter is missing...
...and people that I work with
may be involved in both.
I'm Federal Agent Jack Bauer.
Today is going to be the
longest day of my life.
Senator, stay with the
team until I secure the area.
- Let's get him out.
- All right, we're on the move.
Berkin, stay with the senator.
- Hold on there.
- Sir, wait right here.
Senator, we're clear. Let's go.
Let's go, inside.
- This is Bauer?
You got to help me out.
I understand you're obliged to follow
procedure, but please, hear me out.
- I did this intentionally.
- That I believe.
I didn't mean it like that.
You called me at 6:30 this morning...
...in order to get clearance to
bring a weapon into the breakfast.
Exactly, If I wanted to shoot someone
I would have used my own gun.
I didn't need his.
I spotted him, walked over,
...when I told him I had to take
him in, he went for my gun.
I wasn't going for his gun. I created
a scene to get Palmer out of the room.
If you wanted to get him out of the room,
why didn't you just tell
us there was a problem?
I can't tell you.
I have a restricted mandate.
Cut the crap, Bauer. Your own people
called you in as a suspect.
Tony Almeida from your office
called one of my men...
...and told us you presented a threat.
He doesn't have the same
information that I've got.
Look, you guys are running out of time.
You have a shooter disguised
as a photographer in here.
He's escaped, he's still at large.
Palmer's life is still in danger.
Frank, don't go. I've got to get
out of here. Come on!
Get me Palmer's security.
Work up a list of the photographers
we checked in this morning.
Yeah, I'll wait.
You sold classified information.
People are dead because of you.
The only chance you got of helping
yourself is by talking to us now.
The guy you work for, what's his name?
I call him Gaines.
I don't know if that's his real name.
Do you have any idea where he
might be holding Teri and Kim?
Jamey, stay with us here.
I needed the money, that's all.
I didn't think anyone would die.
Yeah, well, they did.
So you'd better get it together fast,
if you want to help yourself here.
Is Gaines the one watching us
through our surveillance?
And you set that up?
OK, I can't do anything here.
I have to get on the floor.
We can't cut their video off,
Gaines will get suspicious...
...when he sees you walking around.
I know what to say to him.
- Did Jonathan get a shot off?
- He hasn't checked in!
Find him, tell him to get over here.
I need to know what happened!
What the hell is going on?
Why are you using the phone?
We're clear. I had to remove
our tap on the surveillance.
What the hell is happening?
You know that new engineer they
brought in, Milo Pressman?
He was close to finding my entry
point to the surveillance.
You said you could take care
of this for me, Jamey!
And I did.
I removed the tap.
You don't need it anymore.
I'm just trying to protect you.
You want to protect me? Get me Bauer!
They're taking him to Division.
Division? I've got to get him back!
And you will.
When? I need him now.
And if that's not going to happen,
I will move on.
Look, don't do anything
until I call over there...
...and find out what's happening.
All right, get back to me.
He's not waiting around much longer.
I'm going to work up the name Gaines.
- Where've you been?
- I had to go out.
Have you seen this?
There was an incident with Palmer.
We're working on it. What are you doing?
Nothing. I'm waiting for
the key card from Tony.
Forget about that. You're taking
over all of Jamey's projects.
- It doesn't matter.
She's no longer on the team.
Okay, fine, but...
...if I'm gonna to take over an entire
department, I want a bump in pay.
Just do it, Milo. You'll be taken care of.
- That's all we have.
- All right, Mike.
Call me the minute you find out.
What did he say?
Just that they have someone in custody.
They don't know who.
I don't know why you just didn't
listen to Secret Service...
...the first time they told you
to just get out of there.
- Remember Annapolis?
When they pulled me out of the auditorium?
But it turned out to be nothing.
Yeah, well, it doesn't mean this is nothing.
Oh, David, I really don't think we
should be taking chances today.
I've been tracking this assassin since
midnight! 15 minutes ago he was here!
I know what he looks like,
I can help you bring him down but,
you've gotta let me get
in touch with my people!
- Sit down, Bauer!
- Back off!
Alan, it's okay. I got it.
You're not helping yourself, here, Jack.
I need to get back on this case.
That's not going to happen.
I have no choice but to
turn you over to the FBI.
Can I speak to you off the record?
We can talk on the record.
I know you're a good agent, Bauer.
You wanna tell me what's going on here?
If you ever repeat what I'm about
to tell you, I will deny it.
You'll understand as soon as I explain.
My wife and daughter are being held hostage.
If I do not get myself out of this
situation, they will be killed.
Who's holding them?
Same people that want Palmer dead.
They used me to smuggle
a weapon through security...
...and put it in the hands of the assassin.
I'm not sure you want me
to believe that, Jack.
I had to. They were going to kill my family.
But I got Palmer out of the room.
I saved his life.
Look, Frank, I know this sounds crazy...
...but you've got to believe me.
Phone My house,
send a cruiser over to my house.
My family is gone. They have been taken.
You have to let me go.
If I can get back out there,
I can be the conduit...
...to these people,
and I can bring them down.
Even if I wanted to, I don't have
the authority to release you.
I'll turn you over to District for a
debrief. Tell 'em what you've told me.
Maybe they can help you
out of your situation.
Alan, you and Mitchell take him down.
You will be if Palmer dies.
I'll take him.
Hold it, whoa.
All right. Go ahead.
Hold it right there!
Get on the ground!
Don't shoot! It'll explode!
Do not fire!
We don't need an explosion here.
Get out of the way!
- Open the passenger door!
- Don't shoot!
Open the door! Don't panic!
I don't want to hurt you.
Don't hurt me!
- Drive the car.
Drive the car!
Turn left in this driveway now.
Make a right at the end of the parking lot.
- Turn right!
Back it up.
No, no, no.
- Back up the other way.
- All right.
Go into the construction site.
Slow down. Let this truck pass.
Turn in there, through the gates.
The parking spot on the left. Take it.
Calm down. I just need to make one
phone call, and then I'll let you go.
Put the car in park.
Now, get out of the car.
Please, get out of the car.
Get out of the car.
Get under the scaffolding.
Up the stairs, quick. Go.
Open the door.
How could you do this?
Betray your country?
Be responsible for the death
of the people you work with?
I told you, I didn't know any of that
was going to happen.
Oh, that's right.
You were just tapping on
your keyboard, right?
How much they paying you?
You know, I could use $300,000 bucks.
Everybody here could use some extra cash.
I had a husband who left me and
my son with nothing.
I had to do something.
- And this is what you did?
- Yeah, that's right.
I work twice as hard as anyone here
and I make half as much.
Do you think that's fair?
You didn't have to take the job.
You don't know what kind
of pressure I'm under.
I got Milo working on the name Gaines.
What else has she given you?
We got to keep Gaines calm.
Call and tell him that Jack's on his
way back to CTU from division.
- Keep him on the phone as long as you...
I'm not saying anything till I get immunity.
In writing, signed by Chappelle.
Thank God you're all right.
They wanted me to kill you.
That's why I put the flak jacket on.
I couldn't think of anything else.
Why did they want me killed?
Because you started piecing everything
together. Nina, I am so sorry.
It's okay. I'm fine.
What's happening with Teri and Kim?
They're being held hostage.
They said they would kill them if I
didn't help them take out Palmer.
Where are you now?
Secret Service had me in custody but
I just got away. Where are you?
Back at CTU.
They've tapped into surveillance.
Get out of sight
We took care of it. We found their
inside person. It's Jamey.
No, that's not possible. Walsh cleared her.
We've got her right here.
She's already confessed.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
She had access to everything.
Did she say anything about Teri or Kim?
She doesn't know their location.
She knows there's someone named Gaines.
- What else?
- She's not cooperating.
She wants a letter of immunity
signed by Chappelle...
...before she says anything else.
Is she there?
- Put her on the phone.
- Talk to him.
- I'm not going to talk to him.
I know Nina and Tony don't understand
what you're going through right now.
But you know me.
I don't care about protocol
and I am true to my word.
If you help me bring down Gaines...
...and help me get my wife
and daughter back safely...
...I promise you,
I will get you out of this.
You don't have the power to do that.
Of course I do.
Right now only four of us know about this.
I can take care of Nina and Tony.
I can get this done.
- Jamey, please.
- No. You'll say anything.
I want the immunity first.
What do you want me to do, Jack?
She has a son named Kyle.
Bring him in.
No, wait a minute, Jack, you can't do that.
- You got to be careful.
- I also need a car.
Put a CTU com unit in it...
...a box of 9 mm ammunition,
a locksmith kit, the whole package.
I'm going to get myself out of this.
I'm going to go find Teri and Kim.
Where do you want the car?
The corner of Temple and Mercer.
Who are you? What's going on?
A few hours ago, someone kidnapped
my wife and daughter.
I don't get it then. Why are you
running from the police?
What's your name? Lauren?
I work for a special branch
of the government.
Last night, I was given a very
Right now someone is trying to
stop me from doing it.
You don't believe me, do you?
If I were you I wouldn't
believe me either.
What I want to know is
why do you have me here?
You got a car, you got a place to hide.
I can't afford to be
taken back into custody.
If they get close enough,
I have to make them believe...
I'm willing to do something really crazy.
Like shoot me?
I'm not gonna shoot you.
You know something?
I think I believe you.
What are you doing?
You're not the only one
who has problems, Jack.
You know, I just came off
of a hellacious night shift.
I'm due in court in 45 minutes...
...on a DUI charge of which I'm guilty.
So, you know, good luck
with your crisis, okay?
Lauren, I have killed two
people since midnight.
I have not slept for over 24 hours.
So, maybe... maybe you should be
a little more afraid...
...of me than you are right now.
Are you okay?
Everything's all right.
No need to worry.
We heard there was someone with a gun?
It's not clear what happened.
I'm afraid I'm intact and
as grouchy as ever.
So, folks, let's all get back to work.
He left about a half-hour ago.
- Did he say where?
Look, I'm a little worried about him.
He wasn't being himself. He stormed
out like he was angry.
I'm sure he'll be all right, Anna, thanks.
Should we send someone after him?
No, he's okay.
He just needs some time alone.
I'll call Secret Service.
I know how you feel about telling
our side of the story first.
But right now there is no time for that.
Maureen is gonna go on air at 9:00.
That's 40 minutes from right now.
Isn't there anything we can do to stop her?
She won't budge.
And why would she?
"Candidate's son faces murder charges."
It's a huge story.
I cannot believe you are just going to
accept this without putting up a fight.
There's nothing to fight.
In fact, it doesn't matter who
breaks the story, me or Maureen.
We're just going to have to
deal with it and get past it.
I've seen you do the impossible
for your career.
I'm just asking you now
to do it for your son.
You're asking me to rewrite history.
If you wanted my help, you would've
asked me for it seven years ago.
Oh, for crying out loud, David.
I need today's schedule in my office.
Yes, sir, right away.
Tony, it's Jack. Where's Nina?
She's on the floor working up some
information we got from Jamey.
- Is Kyle there yet?
- Not yet.
What about the car?
Nina sent it. It should
be there in 10 minutes.
Good. Anything else from Jamey?
Nothing useful, no.
Tony, Secret Service told me
you were the one who called...
...and told them to take me out of play.
Yeah. I felt I had to, Jack.
Given the information you had,
I think you made the right choice.
I didn't realize what you were
going through earlier tonight.
The last thing you needed
was me giving you attitude.
I appreciate that.
I wish I knew earlier who
I could trust.
I'm just really glad you were there
when Nina came back to CTU.
I'll call you when I get to the car.
- Talk to you later.
Lauren, come here to the window.
See that tool down there,
looks like a hedge trimmer?
- What, the bolt cutters?
- Yes, the bolt cutters.
Could you get them for me, please?
I'll be watching you.
You're gonna do it with a burst.
Give it everything you got.
I know how to use bolt cutters.
That was Frank Simes
from the Secret Service.
What are you doing?
Pouring myself a drink, Mike.
It's not even 9:00 in the morning.
What did Simes say?
The CTU agent who created the disturbance
at the power plant...
...was named Jack Bauer.
He tried to take the gun off one of the
Secret Service agents...
...but claimed the gesture
Maybe it was.
As Bauer was being taken into
custody, he escaped.
How the hell did he do that?
I don't know...
...but they haven't found
him yet. He's still out there.
You know him?
I've heard the name.
What are you doing?
Don't worry. I'm not gonna hurt her.
Get up and go in the other room.
Don't you even think about touching her.
Don't touch her!
You stay out of this or I will hurt her.
No! Get away!
I won't fight you.
It's going to be all right, honey.
- Come on.
- All right.
Maureen, hi. Thanks for getting back to me.
I'm about to go on the air, Sherry.
- Don't go with the story.
- Excuse me?
The story about Keith. Just leave it
alone for right now.
Hold on, please.
Can you give me one minute? Thanks.
The story about Keith is exclusive
and it's documented.
I'm not making false allegations
about your son.
There was an assassination attempt
this morning on my husband.
But it's being covered up.
The man they arrested works
for the government...
...and he may not have been acting alone.
Are you telling me there's a conspiracy...
...inside the government
to kill your husband?
I'm telling you something's going on
that hasn't been reported...
...and if you give me a couple of hours...
...I'll milk some of my sources.
Okay, I won't kill the story about Keith.
I'm not asking you to. Just...
Hold off on it for a couple of days.
I'm sorry. This is all my fault.
No. It's okay, honey.
If I hadn't snuck out
this wouldn't have happened.
Kimberly, listen to me.
We are going to get through this.
We're gonna be a family again.
You and me and Dad are gonna
have our lives back.
This isn't gonna be a part of that life.
Understand what I'm saying?
You're not gonna tell Dad?
Where did you get that?
- CTU. Myers.
- Nina, listen, it's Teri.
Teri. Where are you?
The number's blocked.
Stand in that corner.
No, I don't want to go on
with the governor.
Put him on first. If he's got a
problem, have him talk to Mike.
It looks like he's introducing you.
Well, good. I want it to look that way.
- Dave, I'll talk to you later.
Where'd you go?
I just went out.
- You okay?
- Yeah, I'm fine.
You didn't tell the press about me.
It's going to come out soon anyway.
Look, I talked to my lawyer...
...and he's got his best
people working on it.
- "His best people," right.
- Keith, don't be this way.
You're going to be cleared...
...then you're going to get on with
your life without it hanging over you.
You ready to go?
Kingsley's gonna break the story
in about ten minutes.
- Have we prepared something?
- No longer necessary.
What do you mean?
I just got off the phone with Kingsley.
She's going to sit on the story for now.
Why would she do that?
Don't know, she didn't say.
Maybe you got through to her.
No, I didn't.
It's something else.
Maureen Kingsley's decided to hold
off on the story for some reason.
Thank God, David.
Have any idea why she'd do that?
No. Maybe her sources weren't as solid...
...as she said they were?
What? Aren't you relieved?
I want to talk to her.
After she gets off the air, I'll call her.
Don't you think that it's
smarter just to let things be?
I think it's smarter to know
Come on. Let's go.
Where do you work?
Cable's Coffee Shop on Ventura.
Home of the $3.99 all-day breakfast.
I used to be.
But my sister moved in with us...
...after she got in a really
bad car accident.
She couldn't take care of herself.
My husband Henry told me I had to choose.
You chose the sister.
- This your first DUI?
- First in a couple years.
- You got a problem?
- What, a drinking problem?
I wish it were that simple. At least
then I'd have a support group.
Nope. What I'm afraid
all I have is bad luck.
Sorry I had to get you involved in all this.
Just let me go.
As soon as I get my car.
As soon as I get my car.
I used to be in the military.
Used to do fieldwork for the CIA.
I've been to some horrible places.
I've seen some pretty terrible things.
I don't think I've ever been
this scared in my whole life.
No, I told you, I'm not saying any more
until I get counsel.
I think you will.
Why do you think that?
'Cause we're bringing Kyle here.
I'll kill you if you touch my son.
We're not going to lay
a finger on him.
If you don't give us something
to help us find Gaines...
...we have no choice but to bring him here.
No. You won't.
We will, Jamey.
Imagine the effect it'll have on him...
...seeing his mother in restraints.
- Arrested for being a traitor.
- No. This is not fair.
That's a picture he's going to carry
with him the rest of his life.
Don't do this. Kyle can't see
me like this. Please, Nina.
He doesn't have to.
You just have to start talking to us.
The bottom line is, Jamey...
...the best thing you can do for your son...
...is to help us get Gaines now.
Once we have you in custody...
...Gaines is going to do anything
he can to keep you from testifying.
And if he can't get to you directly,
where's he going next?
Your son, right?
I'm just so...
I need time to think.
Take a couple minutes.
I'm in big trouble here
and I need your help, please.
I've got to get to a car.
I step out of this trailer
they'll take me into custody.
You want me to pick it up?
Yes, and bring it back here. I need
you to park it around the side.
Why didn't you have your
friend drop it off here...
Complicated. The person dropping
off the car was following orders.
He couldn't know it was for me.
Do you realize how insane this sounds?
Yes, I do.
Okay, let's just say for the
sake of argument I believe half of it.
Just tell me one thing. Is your wife
and daughter really in trouble?
Yes, they are.
Where's the car?
Over on the corner of Temple and Mercer.
Silver sedan, government plates.
The keys'll be in it.
Keep going, Lauren.
Keep going, come on.
- Excuse me!
He's out the window! I see him!
All right, this is Hayes.
I got a 20 on Bauer.
What have you got?
I tried Gaines under many spellings
and I came up with a long list...
...of those with records and those
with criminal associations.
Crosscheck it with everything
else we've gotten tonight.
Plane crash, Alan York, Penticoff.
She's had enough time to think about it.
Jamey's son Kyle is being brought in.
Call me in ITS when he gets here.
What kind of trouble is she in?
Don't treat me like I'm stupid.
You told me to take over her stuff
You don't tell me you're gone.
Now you're bringing her son in?
She's in trouble...
Milo, you're not an Internal Affairs agent
Keep quiet, call us when
Kyle gets here, okay?
He's going to figure it out.
It's not going to be a
secret much longer, anyway.
You're right, we'll bring Milo in
because what Jamey gives...
...he'll be the one to work it up.
I hope it's something substantial.
Oh, my God!
- Get her out of those!
What's the number!
- C'mon, now.
- We need medical help.
Yes. We're in ITS.
Watch her head.
What have you done?
It's Milo. Jamey's son
just arrived. Bring him in?
No. Keep him out of here.
