Jack: Stand down!
Omar: Stand back or Iíll kill her!
Jack: Stand down!
Omar: Stand back or Iíll kill her!
Jack: Put your gun down!
Omar: Stand back!
Jack: Drop it now!
Omar: Iíll kill her! I will kill her!
Audrey: Jack, when I was inside, I recognized one of the men.
Audrey: I donít know. I canít place him, but I know that I saw him before today.
Heller: Why did they think you were holding something back from them?
Richard: I will not tell these people things about my private life that they donít need to know.
Heller: That you donít think they need to know.
Behrooz: What are you doing here?
Tariq: Your mother told Marwan you took care of the American girl.
Tariq: Then youíll need help getting rid of the body.
Dina: Heís going to kill our son.
Behrooz: I took care of the girl! Marwan knows!
Tariq: Itís not Marwan wants you dead.
Behrooz: Who want me dead? Who?
Tariq: Your father.
Driscoll: Thank you so much for helping me out. They said Mayaís arrived.
Mark: Sheís in the exam area. Iím about to do her workup.
Driscoll: She suffers from schizophrenia.
Paul: I want us to be together again.
Audrey: Iím sorry, Paul. Iím seeing someone. Paul, this is Jack Bauer.
Jack: Nice to meet you.
Driscoll: What was your courier transporting?
Reese: Itís a Dobson type override.
Driscoll: What exactly does this override do?
Reese: Itís a combination of hardware and software that can remotely take control of the nuclear power facilities.
Jack: And the person in possession of this program? Can they do the opposite with it? Create a disaster in a plant, a meltdown?
Reese: Theoretically, yes.
Driscoll: How many nuclear power plants in this country would be vulnerable?
Reese: All of them.
Marianne: Itís me. They found out about the override.
The following takes place between 1:00 P.M. and 2:00 P.M.
[To save time, Jack wants to go by himself to ďFelsted SecurityĒ, the company that handled the dinner where Audrey first spotted the man from the compound.]
Audrey: Jack, did you get the surveillance footage from the Hyatt security?
Jack: No. The heritage dinner that you attended was monitored by a private company, ďFelsted SecurityĒ. I just got off the phone with them. Theyíve got the video tapes on file, but unfortunately, theyíre working off a close system. Iíve gotta go there, pick up the tapes, bring them back here for you to ID. Where are you on the guest list?
Audrey: Iím having it sent here.
Jack: Dammit, weíre running out of time.
Audrey: What do you mean? Is it that urgent?
Jack: Yes. As it turns out, your kidnapping was just a cover for a much larger attack. The terrorists used the broadcast of the trial to overload the internet, and divert all of our attention away from what they were really trying to do. I need a full tactical for my vehicle.
Man: Yes, sir.
Audrey: Which is what?
Jack: Theyíre in possession of a stolen device called an override. With that, theyíve gained control of 104 nuclear power plants across this country. The override device maintains heat levels within the reactors. Affectively, they can melt down every one of those plants.
Man: Here you go.
Audrey: My God.
Jack: Thank you.
Jack: The man you saw when you were being held captive Ė right now heís our only lead.
Audrey: Then let me come to ďFelsted SecurityĒ with you and make the ID there. It will be quicker.
Jack: Audrey, I canít. After what youíve been through today, Iím not gonna put you at risk.
Audrey: You just said our nationís nuclear power plants will melt down if we donít find that override, Jack. We canít afford to waste any more time.
Jack: Come with me.
Curtis: There are 104 nuclear power stations in the United States. Weíve just learned the terrorists are trying to covert all 104 nuclear cores into weapons.
Driscoll: Give us the worst case casualty scenarios, Curtis.
Curtis: This graphic represents a single meltdown scenario. Edgar, break it down for us.
Edgar: If we can rest control of the override, it will shut down the entire cooler system in the core amounts for the containment building. In the first three hours, the population within a ten mile radius will receive the highest doses of radiation. Those people will die within two days.
Curtis: Now, the smallest of these 104 cities represent 75 thousand people. Multiply that by a 104, weíre looking at 7.8 million casualties, and thatís conservative. The environmental impact will also be catastrophic. Thirty miles in all directions of each plant will be uninhabitable for at least five years.
Marianne: Donít these plants have multiple security systems to prevent this kind of breach?
Curtis: They do. But the overrideís already deactivated them.
Driscoll: And if we donít succeed, how long before these cores start to melt down?
Curtis: Projects in the first radiation shock waves in approximately three hours.
Driscoll: All right, I want everyone here from comm. and logistics to work on getting a handle on the software. The rest of you will handle support and conjunction with NRC personnel. Letís get to work.
Jack: Erin, weíre leaving now.
Heller: Where are you going, Jack?
Jack: Audreyís given us a significant lead. We need to follow it up.
Heller: What kind of lead?
Audrey: When we were being held I recognized someone. He was an American. I saw him at a function here in LA a couple of months ago.
Jack: Weíre going to view the surveillance tapes of the function at a private security company not far from here.
Heller: I donít want her going out now. Why canít you access the tapes here?
Jack: Sir, I wish we could. But theyíre off-line. They would have to record over four and a half hours of material for us to view. We donít have that time.
Audrey: Jack told me that these people retrains are nuclear power plants as weapons. We have to follow this lead, and we have to follow it now.
Jack: Sir, Audrey is the only person who can make this ID.
Heller: If anything happens, Jack, I will hold you personally responsible.
Jack: I understand.
Audrey: How far are we from this facility?
Jack: Not far, Burbank.
[Paul stops Audrey.]
Jack: Iíll get the team set up.
Paul: We need to talk.
Audrey: Weíll have to do it when I get back.
Paul: Back? From where?
Audrey: Weíre following up on something.
Audrey: Paul, please, can we just do this later?
Jack: How many on your team?
Man: Four of us.
Jack: Set up a weapons package. Iíll meet you in the motor-pool.
Paul: Look, I donít know about all of this, but I know about you and him, and I am not OK with it.
Audrey: Paul, you and I are not together any more.
Paul: I thought we were trying to work things out.
Audrey: Yeah, I tried that. But you kept putting it off, so I gave up. We havenít been together for over nine months. Weíre not trying to work out anything any more.
Jack: Mr. Rains, Iím sorry to interruptÖ
Paul: She is my wife.
Audrey: Paul, please. Excuse me.
Paul: Sheís my wife. Donít you forget that.
Jack: Yeah. Letís go.
Audrey: Jack, Iím sorry.
Jack: Itís fine.
[Marianne goes over to Sarah.]
Marianne: Hey. I just received these files from DOD, and I need to give them to Jack Bauer.
Sarah: Well, you canít. Jack just left.
Marianne: Oh. Well, umÖ can I forward them to him?
Sarah: No, he went with Audrey Raines to ďFelsted SecurityĒ to look at some archive footage.
Marianne: OK. Well, I guess I can just hold on to them for him.
Sarah: Yeah, thatíll be fine.
[Marianne looks up the location of Felsted on her computer.]
Paul: Jim, we need to talk.
Heller: Come here.
Paul: Do you know about Audrey and Jack Bauer?
Heller: Not until an hour ago.
Paul: Well, I gotta tell you, carrying it on right under your nose, itís pretty unprofessional, donít you think?
Heller: Look, I understand your feelings about this. But you and Audrey had been separated for almost a year. Paul, Iím sorry. Sheís a big girl. She can do what she wants.
Paul: What sheís doingÖ sheís breaking my heart.
[Sarah catches Marianne in the back area.]
Sarah: What are you doing back here?
Marianne: UmÖ Edgar asked me to do a manual reboot of hub 5.
Sarah: I can do that for him.
Marianne: No, no. Itís fine. I got it.
[Sarah leaves. Marianne secretly phones her contact Ė a man named Powell.]
Marianne: Bauer and Audrey Raines left here about five minutes ago.
Powell: Whereíd they go?
Marianne: ďFelsted SecurityĒ. 357 White Oak Boulevard. Itís in Burbank.
Powell: All right, good. Youíre going to need to set things up on your end.
Marianne: What are you talking about? I should be done here.
Powell: No. When Jack Bauer and Audrey Rained are killed, CTU is going to know that someone inside leaked their location.
Marianne: All right. What do I do?
Powell: Divert suspicion.
[Navi watches a news report about Hellerís rescue.]
News Reporter on TV: Iím standing live in an area just outside the perimeter. Unfortunately, the Pentagon is not commenting at this time, but what we do know is that at 12:10 P.M. Secretary Heller and his daughter Audrey Rains were successfully rescued. The number of fatalities is unknown, but sources say there might have been a total of 20 terrorists inside the building at the time. It appears there are no survivors among them.
Marwan: Any lost data?
Navi: It looks like all the critical instructions were uploaded before the assault.
Marwan: Good, then weíre all set?
Navi: Yes. The override has taken control of the nuclear power plants.
Dina: What about Behrooz? What about our son?
Navi: We have to be strong now. Weíll mourn him when this is over.
[Navi leaves the room. Dinaís cell phone rings.]
Dina: Behrooz? Are you all right?
Behrooz: Tariq tried to kill me. He was going to shoot me. I had to defend myself.
Dina: What did you do?
Behrooz: I killed him. You canít let father know.
Dina: Why not?
Behrooz: Because fatherís the one who told Tariq to do it. He wants me dead because I messed up with Debbie.
Dina: Behrooz, thatís not possible. Your father would never want to hurt you.
Behrooz: Itís true. Mom, I donít know what to do. You have to help me.
Dina: Where are you now?
Behrooz: Iím near the metroling station on Lawson in Chatsworth.
Dina: Are you using Tariqís car?
Dina: Hide it. Iíll pick you up there in a half hour.
[Navi enters the room.]
Navi: Who was on the phone?
Dina: It was nothing important.
[Navi grabs Dina.]
Navi: What did Behrooz do?
Dina: No, what did you do? Did you give the order?
Navi: Behrooz was not committed. It was just a matter of time before he turned against us.
Dina: You ordered Tariq to kill him. To kill our own son.
[Dina slaps Navi over and over.]
Dina: No! No! No! You sickÖ
[Navi pushes Dina against the wall.]
Navi: Whereís Tariq?!
Dina: Behrooz killed him.
Navi: Thatís imposible.
Dina: Because you think heís weak? Heís not.
Navi: Nothing, nothing will stand in the way of what needs to be done. Not him, not you. Where is he now?
Dina: Why? What are you going to do? Youíre hurting me.
Navi: I will do more than that. Now, you listen to me, woman. You will do exactly as you told him. You will pick him up in a half an hour.
[Audrey and Jack are on the way to ďFelsted SecurityĒ.]
Jack: What did you say to Paul?
Audrey: That Iím filing for divorce as soon as I get back to DC.
Jack: Are you sure thatís what you want?
Sarah: Do you have something?
Edgar: It looks like the hubs and the override device hasnít completely taken control of all the reactors. Iím just trying to get some response.
Sarah: What can I do?
Edgar: Nothing. Just stay off hub 5. I need it.
Sarah: I thought hub 5 was on for a reboot.
Edgar: No. Curtis, come here.
[Sarah confronts Marianne about her lie.]
Sarah: Can I talk to you for a minute?
Marianne: Actually, Iím kinda busy.
Sarah: You lied to me about doing a reboot for Edgar.
Marianne: Yes, I did.
Marianne: Sarah, I had a personal call to make, and I knew it would be inappropriate at the time of a crisis. I didnít want anyone to know.
Sarah: Then why did you do it in here? Why didnít you just go outside?
Marianne: I was trying to make it look like Iím working, OK? Iím sorry, it wonít happen again.
[Navi drives Dina to the train station. Naviís phone rings.]
Navi: Itís Marwan. Yes?
Marwan: Has Tariq taken care of your son?
Navi: I havenít spoken with Tariq yet. But Iím sure if there was a problem, he would have called.
Marwan: The fact that Iím even talking to you about this is a problem. The next two hours are crucial. I canít be distracted by this.
Navi: I understand. I promise I will personally oversee the situation to make sure it is resolved.
Marwan: Fix this, Navi.
Navi: Of course.
Dina: What is Marwan going to say if he finds out Behrooz killed Tariq?
Navi: Tariq is expendable, like we all are. Marwan understand that. All he cares about is that Behrooz is silenced.
Dina: I will not be able to look at you after today without thinking about what we did to him.
Edgar: I think I got it.
Edgar: The Dobson override. I think I got a piece of the code.
Curtis: What does that mean?
Edgar: This is really it. I can turn off the override and stop the remaining plants from melting down.
Curtis: What do you need?
Edgar: To get into the software cornel. But the NRC will never let me. Itís too dangerous.
Edgar: If I tinker in there and screw up, I can start a chain reaction.
Curtis: All right, Edgar. Iím gonna need you to present this to Heller. He can order NRC to let you in.
Edgar: Present to Heller?
Curtis: Yeah, heís in the situation room. What?
Edgar: I shouldnít do this, Curtis.
Curtis: Why not?
Edgar: I get feign. I feel very noxious, I have low blood sugar.
Curtis: Itís just Driscoll and Heller.
Edgar: Driscollís in there too?
Curtis: Youíll be fine.
[Curtis makes Edgar present the situation to Heller and Driscoll.]
Curtis: Excuse me, Mr. Secretary. Iím gonna have to interrupt you.
Heller: What is it?
Curtis: This is Edgar Stiles, our Chief Analyst. He is requesting access to the cornels of the power plants.
Heller: My understanding is that no one is to manipulate those cornels while the plants are on-line.
Edgar: Yes, but there is a way to do it if youíre careful. Iíd have to stay away from the pre-compiled headers while I was putting a software lock on the Dobson override code. But the chances of causing a load imbalanceÖ
Heller: I donít understand one thing youíre talking about. Just tell me what the downside is if the cornels are disrupted because of your manipulation.
Edgar: If I make a mistake, I can accelerate a core meltdown on some of the reactors. This is probably a bad idea. Maybe we shouldnít do it.
Heller: But if youíre successful, you can regain control of the reactors?
Driscoll: Edgar, what we need to know is can you do this without making a mistake?
Edgar: Yeah, I can do it.
Heller: Youíre not filling me with confidence, Edgar.
Edgar: Look, Iím just a little nervous, but if I say I can do it, I can do it.
[Navi is still driving Dina to the train station.]
Dina: Heíll run away the moment heíll see you.
Navi: He wonít see me. Youíll be the only one in the car when you pick him up.
[Dinaís phone rings.]
Dina: Itís Behrooz.
Navi: Answer him.
Behrooz: Are you almost here?
Behrooz: What did you tell dad?
Dina: I didnít, I just left. He was busy working.
Behrooz: What are we going to do? Wherever we go, heíll find us.
Dina: No, he wonít. I know a safe place.
Behrooz: I didnít understand until today what it would feel like doing these things. Theyíre wrong, mom. And I see it now.
Dina: Donít think about that any more. Youíll be safe now.
Behrooz: But I am thinking about it. Maybe I should go to the police and tell them everything I know.
Dina: Weíll talk about it when I get there.
Navi: You did well.
[Navi pulls over and gives Dina the keys. He gets in another car with a set of henchmen.]
Dina: Who are they?
Navi: Donít worry about it. Just make sure you take the second exit at Angeles Crests.
Dina: Heís going to ask me why Iím stopping.
Navi: Let him ask.
Dina: What do I tell him?
Navi: Donít tell him anything. Weíll meet you there.
Curtis: Erin. Weíre making good progress.
Driscoll: Tell me.
Curtis: Weíve been able to take 87 power plants off-line. Theyíre safe.
Driscoll: What about the other 17?
Curtis: Well, itís how weíd be able to use the override to block a shutdown. But everything weíre trying is being repelled.
Driscoll: What are we doing to get around it?
Curtis: Believe me, Erin, weíre trying everything. If thereís a way, weíll find it. Iíll keep you posted.
[Driscoll stops into the clinic to see Maya, who is anxious.]
Driscoll: How are you feeling?
Maya: Not good. I donít like these doctors, I want Doctor Aronowitz.
Driscoll: You canít see him today. You canít see him today.
Maya: Why not?
Driscoll: Because I canít leave here, and I want you close by.
Maya: Then stay here with me.
Driscoll: Iíll be back in a few minutes, I promise. But you have to do something for me, OK? I need you to do something. Look at me. Maya, look at me. You need to cooperate with the doctors. OK?
Maya: OK. OK.
Driscoll: OK. Come here. Iíll be back. I promise.
[Driscoll leaves the clinic.]
Nurse: Take these, please.
[The nurse hands Maya some pills.]
Curtis: Your son was in sensory disorientation for a total of two and a half hours.
Heller: What did he say when you took him off it?
Heller: You tortured my son for almost three hours and ended up yielding nothing?
Curtis: You gave the order, sir.
[Curtis and Heller get into the interrogation room where Richard is.]
Heller: Give us a moment, please.
Man: Yes, sir.
Heller: Iím sorry this had to happen, Richard, but we had to make sure that you werenít withholding anything from us.
Richard: I hate you. I never wanna see you again.
Heller: Please understand that I am responsible for the lives of millions of people.
Richard: You torture me, and now you want me to forgive you? It just confirms everything I always knew about you. Am I free to leave?
[Jack and Audrey are still in the car. Audreyís phone rings.]
Audrey: Yeah, Paul?
Paul: Audrey, do you have a minute?
Audrey: Sure. Whatís going on?
Paul: I just talked to your dad, and he said something to me that Iíve been thinking about a lot. He said that youíre a big girl, and I think Iíve been treating you like a child.
Audrey: I donít think that, Paul.
Paul: Well, whether it comes off that way or not, I need to respect your choices, respect who you are, andÖ Iíve been so stupid about all of this. Iíve lost sight of the things I love about you.
Audrey: Look, uhÖ I hear what youíre saying, but IÖ I donítÖ I donít really know how to respond to that.
Paul: Well, you donít have to. I just want you to know that Iíve been wrong about a lot of things, and IímÖ just before you make any big decisions, decisions that youíre entitled to make, let some time go by. Is that fair of me to ask?
Audrey: Yeah. Yeah, thatís fair.
Paul: OK, well, IíllÖ Iíll see you later.
Audrey: Yeah, see you later.
Jack: How far out are we?
Man: A few miles away, sir.
[Dina picks up Behrooz.]
Behrooz: Where are we gonna go?
Dina: Out of the city.
Behrooz: Why did father want to kill me? Iím his son!
Dina: Stop, Behrooz. You canít think about that now. Get in.
Behrooz: We killed two people today. I canít do this. Iím freaking out.
[Dina picks up Behrooz. She sees an oncoming train.]
Dina: Get in the train.
Dina: Your fatherís following us.
Dina: It was the only way I could save you. Now, dammit, Behrooz, get out. Go. Go! Obey Me!
[Suddenly, shots fire and the windshield shatters. Dina is hit in the arm.]
Behrooz: Mom! Mom!
Dina: Oh, God!
[Behrooz climbs back into the car and drives from the passenger side.]
[Navi and his men follow, but Behrooz eludes them in traffic.]
[Navi goes to see Marwan.]
Marwan: This has taken care of?
Navi: No. There is a problem. My wife and Behrooz have betrayed us.
Marwan: Where are they now?
Navi: I donít know. But Dinaís been wounded. Sheíll have to get medical attention.
Marwan: So you come to me, asking me for help with this mess?
Navi: I canít do it alone, Marwan. Iím ashamed of myself. Allow me to make this right.
Marwan: What would you need?
Navi: To monitor local hospitals. Iíll also need drivers, as well as access to police frequencies.
Marwan: You think sheíll go to the police?
Navi: No, no. But they may pick her up, if they find out sheís been shot.
Marwan: I told you. I canít be distracted by this right now. [To the man sitting next to them] Give him what he needs. Make sure the woman and child are captured before they can do us harm.
Navi: Thank you. Thank you.
Marwan: No matter what happen today, you will answer to this.
Navi: I understand.
[Jack and Audrey arrive at ďFelsted SecurityĒ.]
Marcy: Has she seen the tapes yet?
Jack: No, we just got here.
Marcy: Well, good. Iíll start putting the guest list together.
Jack: How long is it gonna take you to create the database?
Marcy: It shouldnít be long. Once weíve identified him, weíll be able to run him through.
Marcy: Iím working on it right now. Iíll let you know the second itís done.
Jack: OK, Marcy. Thanks. Our office just got a copy of the guest list from the dinner where you saw this guy. Once you make an ID on the surveillance tape, weíll be able to send it through a database and find out who it is.
Jack: Iím carrying.
[Jackís phone rings.]
Marianne: Jack, this is Marianne Taylor at CTU.
Jack: What is it, Marianne?
Marianne: Curtis wanted me to tell you that as soon as Audrey recognizes somebody from the surveillance video, he wants it sent directly to my system. Iím on 6-0-Casper.
Jack: Why didnít he tell me himself?
Marianne: Theyíre still trying to shut down all the remaining power plants, and everybody else is still working on that.
Jack: Are they gonna be able to control them in time?
Marianne: I donít know.
Jack: OK. Keep me informed.
Audrey: What is it?
Jack: We donít have a lot of time.
Doctor: She seems to be doing better now. Sheís sleeping.
Driscoll: Thatís very good news.
[Driscoll sees on Mayaís charts that she was given Haldol.]
Driscoll: Did you give her Haldol?
Doctor: Mm-hm. Why?
Driscoll: Sheís allergic to it, itís in her file.
[Driscoll runs up to Maya.]
Doctor: The date on this is old. This is the wrong file.
Driscoll: Maya! Maya! Sheís unconscious! Maya.
Doctor: Mary, we have a code! I need 25 ccís of epinephrine!
[The doctor attempts to revive Maya. Driscoll is terrified.]
Driscoll: How could youíve got the wrong file?
Doctor: Excuse me, please step out. I need that syringe now!
Mary: Doctor, 25 ccís.
[Sarah comes in to tell Driscoll that Heller is looking for her.]
Sarah: Ms. Driscoll, Secretary HellerÖ
Nurse: Are we charging? Letís go, Mary.
Doctor: Mary, make sure I get a crash cart.
Driscoll: What is it, Sarah? Sarah?
Sarah: Secretary Heller needs you.
Driscoll: For what?
Sarah: Heís going on-line with the President in a few minutes, and he wants to know about our progress on the reactors.
Driscoll: UmÖ tell him that Edgarís still trying to get control of the system cornel, and that weíll know more in 15 minutes.
Sarah: If we do stop the meltdown, he wants to know if thereís gonna be any system contamination.
Driscoll: I know there wonít be any contamination. Itíll take 36 hours to reboot the reactors. Is there anything else?
Sarah: No, thatís all.
Driscoll: All right, go.
[Jack and Audrey scan the surveillance footage from the dinner event.]
Gary: We had security cameras running on only two areas; one was covering the main ballroom and one was in the entrance.
Gary: All right.
Audrey: What time is that?
Audrey: No, thatís too early. I met him when I arrived, around 9:00, 9:15.
Gary: All right.
Audrey: Wait, stop. Can you back this up a few frames?
Audrey: Wait, wait. Stop there. I think thatís him. Can you enhance him right here?
Jack: That image wonít process. We need to make it clear.
Gary: Let me see if I can get that for you.
[Jack notices on Felstedís security camera that their guard is not at his post.]
Jack: Whoís supposed to be at that desk?
Gary: Oh, thatís Mitchell. He probably went out for another smoke.
Jack: The back doorís wide open. No oneís there.
[Jack radios for the CTU agents that accompanied him.]
Jack: Craig, do you copy? Craig? Rick? How many ways into this area of the building?
Jack: Put them up. Rick?
[Jack sees their dead bodies on the monitor. Then there are gunshots outside. Suddenly, the door blasts open and two men come in firing.]
Jack: Get down!
[The tech gets hit.]
Jack: Are you OK?
[Jack sees the wounded Gary lying on the ground.]
Jack: Dammit. Iím gonna call for help, OK? But first I need to know whereís the surveillance tape is? Where is the source?
Gary: The main serÖ servers.
Jack: How do I access it?
Gary: On the flash memory.
Jack: Watch the security monitors. Do you have sticks? Gary, do you have sticks?
Gary: In myÖ pocket.
[Jack takes the sticks out of Garyís pocket. He copies the data from the main servers into the stick.]
[Jack sees that Garyís dying. He tries to revive him.]
Jack: Stay with me. Heís gone.
[They see more men coming toward them.]
Audrey: Jack, theyíre coming.
Jack: Theyíre trying to seal us off.
Audrey: Shouldnít we call CTU?
Jack: No. CTUís gotta be compromised, thatís the only way theyíd know we were here. We gotta get out of here.
[Jack grabs the sticks, and he and Audrey make their way through the building.]
Jack: Move. Go! Go! Go. Go, go.
[Jack grabs a gun from one of the bodies and gives it to Audrey for backup.]
Jack: Thereís one other pipe, safetyís off.
Jack: You can do this. Weíll cover each other.
[Jack calls someone on his cell phone.]
Audrey: I thought you said CTUís been compromised.
Jack: It has been.
Audrey: Then who are you calling?
Jack: The only person I can trust right now.
[Heller briefs President Keeler on the situation.]
Keeler: And if there are 17 nuclear power plants about to melt down, I need to update an evacuation strategy.
Heller: I agree, sir. Iíve already laid the groundwork with the National Guard. Theyíre preparing to go into individual communities and effect a civil defense evacuation upon your command.
Keeler: And you say our worst case scenario gives up approximately three hours?
Heller: Thatís correct, sir.
Keeler: Erin, what are our chances of shutting down the remaining 17?
Driscoll: At this time, I would say itís less than 50 percent. But weíre trying something now that might improve those chances.
Keeler: When will you know more?
Driscoll: In the next 15 minutes.
Keeler: All right. Keep me updated.
Driscoll: Yes, Mr. President.
Heller: Letís find out from Jack and Audrey if theyíve come up with anything on their end.
Curtis: Yes, sir.
Driscoll: Mr. Secretary, I can have a room prepared for you to rest if you like. Youíve been under a great deal of stress in the past few hours.
Heller: Yeah. No, I donít think I can rest, but uhÖ thanks anyway. Erin.
Driscoll: Yes, sir?
Heller: I understand your daughterís down in the clinic.
Driscoll: Yes, but it wonít interfere with my work.
Heller: Iím sure of that. I was just wondering if everything was OK.
Driscoll: Itís something weíve lived with since she was six years old. There are good days and bad days. Todayís a bad one.
Heller: Iím sorry.
Jack: OK, go right.
[Jack sees someone approaching them.]
Jack: Come here.
[Jack shoots the man.]
Jack: Go. Move, come on.
[They get to the parking garage.]
Jack: Weíre clear.
[The door of the garage opens, and three men enter.]
Jack: Move. Move!
[Jack and Audrey hide. More men come inside. Jack starts shooting at them.]
Jack: OK. Weíre gonna get through this, but you gotta listen to me. I need to get that guyís weapon. I need you to provide cover. Save your ammunition. Space out your shots. Youíre ready?
[Jack runs, and Audrey starts shooting the men. Jack gets the guyís gun, ad start shooting at the men too.]
Jack: Audrey, get down!
Audrey: Iím out!
Jack: Stay down!
[Jack runs back to Audrey.]
Jack: Iím empty.
Jack: Iím empty!
[The men approach, looking for Jack and Audrey. Suddenly, Tony Almeida appears and shoots the rest of the henchmen.]
Tony: Youíre OK?
Jack: Yeah, weíre all right. Move. Move!
[The three run out of the building.]
[Heller and Driscoll watch as Edgar goes through the code to break the Override on the reactors.]
Driscoll: Edgarís just started the final sequence.
Heller: Has he gained the cornel yet?
Driscoll: Yes. This is where we canít make a mistake. If he does, heíll accelerate the meltdowns instead of stopping them.
Edgar: Sarah, look up the up course for the load-A registered condition.
Edgar: No, not the jump-A. I need the load-A. Dammit. Move. Thatís it. A-B-A-1. I think I got it.
Heller: What do you mean, ďyou thinkĒ?
Edgar: Iíd like to review it again before I send it, please.
Driscoll: How long will that take?
Edgar: Ten minutes.
Driscoll: We donít have time. You have to do it now.
Edgar: Let me just check the headers.
Curtis: Now, Edgar.
[Edgar sends it.]
Edgar: I did the best I could, sir. I hope it works.
Heller: So do I.
[Everyone at CTU wait to see what happens.]
Heller: Thereís no response.
Edgar: Come on.
[One by one, the reactors are turned off.]
Sarah: There they go.
Heller: Congratulations, Edgar.
Edgar: Thank you, sir.
[Of the seventeen, six are still immune to the kill sequence.]
Edgar: No, donít tell me that.
Driscoll: Edgar, whatís going on? Why are some of the reactors still not shutting down? Edgar, talk to me.
Edgar: Six of the reactors are immune to the kill sequence. The Dobson overrideís already taken over their system.
Driscoll: All six are gonna melt down?
Edgar: Their shutdown codes have been completely corrupted.
Heller: Contact Bauer. Either he finds the people responsible for planning the override, or weíre looking at a nuclear holocaust.
