Season 4, Episode 9 Transcript:

Previously on 24:

Marwan: The Americans have been able to shut down most of the reactors. Iím gonna have to manage the override personally. Make sure those six melt down on schedule.
Navi: Is there anything I can do?
Marwan: Take care of your mess.
Navi: I give you my word: my wife and son will be dead by the end of this day.
------------------------
Behrooz: Iím not afraid of father.
Dina: You should be.
Behrooz: He tried to kill me, and then he did this to you.
------------------------
Powell: Youíre going to need to set things up on your end.
Marianne: All right. What do I do?
Powell: Divert suspicion.
------------------------
Heller: Someone inside CTU is leaking information to someone on the outside.
Sarah: Ms. Driscoll, whatís going on?
Heller: Youíre under arrest, Gavin.
Sarah: For what?
Driscoll: Youíve been passing classified information. Thousands of peopleís lives are at stake. Where are the people who control the override?
Sarah: I swear I donít know anything.
------------------------
Jack: Yeah?
Driscoll: They got a match, Jack. His name is Henry Powell. Heís a computer consultant that used to work for ďMcLennen ForsterĒ.
Jack: Theyíre the Defense contractors that designed the override device controlling the power plants.
------------------------
Powell: Youíre going to fly me out of here.
Jack: Drop the weapon now! Now! Put him in the back.
Tony: Heís dead, Jack.
Jack: Dammit!
------------------------
Edgar: You got the wrong person. Sarahís not guilty of anything. Itís Marianne Taylor.
Curtis: Youíre under arrest.
------------------------
The following takes place between 3:00 P.M. and 4:00 P.M.
[Curtis goes up to Driscollís office.]
Agent: Excuse me, Curtis?
Curtis: Not now.
Driscoll (over phone): Coordinate that with NRC, and copy me on 6-0-B. Fine.
[Driscoll hangs up.]
Curtis: I warned you about her.
Driscoll: What are you talking bout?
Curtis: Marianne Taylor. I told you she was trouble and it was a mistake to let her work here.
Driscoll: No. You told me that you were uncomfortable working with her. You didnít tell me you were having a relationship with a corporate spy.
Curtis: How could I have possibly known that, Erin? Donít play that card with me.
Driscoll: Fine, then donít walk in here with that ďI told you soĒ attitude. Because now we both have to deal with this.
Curtis: You mean Division.
Driscoll: Thatís right. Theyíre gonna want a complete timeline Ė everything from how Marianne got to the front door down to the highest security files that she was able to access in a very short period of time.
Curtis: Can we have a conversation off the book?
Driscoll: Go ahead.
Curtis: Thereís no point in neither of us compromising on authority in the eyes of Division, agreed or disagreed?
Driscoll: Agreed.
Curtis: Marianne did an excellent job in establishing her credentials. All we need to do is leave out some of the details on how she managed to leverage her way in here.
Driscoll: I donít like anyone holding something over me.
Curtis: Neither do I.
Driscoll: How long will it take you to adjust her files?
Curtis: Two minutes.
Driscoll: Iíll call Division in five.
------------------------
[President Keeler grills Heller about Marianne.]
Keeler: Explain to me how this mole Marianne Taylor was able to infiltrate CTU.
Heller: Weíre still investigating, Mr. President.
Keeler: Who does she work for?
Heller: We donít know.
Keeler: Find out.
Heller: We will, as soon as he regains consciousness. Sheís being treated here in the clinic.
Keeler: Treated for what?
Heller: An attempt on her life.
Keeler: Who tried to kill her?
Heller: We donít know that either, but whoever it was, theyíre more than likely connected with the theft of the override.
Keeler: Jim, we need to find that override now. Whatís the latest from the NRC?
Heller: They just reported the San Gabriel island reactorís about to go critical.
Keeler: Whatís the timeframe?
Heller: A meltdown within the hour. We started evacuating the San Gabriel zone. The population affected is less than a hundred thousand; hopefully most of them are already on the move.
Keeler: All right. Expedite the process as much as you can.
Heller: Yes, sir.
------------------------
[Jack calls CTU.]
Driscoll: Jack.
Jack: Erin, Powellís dead. He was hit by a sniper as soon as we took him into custody.
Driscoll: Did you get anything from him before he was killed?
Jack: No, but I managed to get the last ten calls he made off his cell phone. He called two numbers repeatedly. Through caller ID, we traced one of them to Marianne Taylor.
Driscoll: Powellís working with Marianne?
Jack: Apparently.
Driscoll: What about this other number?
Jack: Hold on. Iím gonna need you to trace it through CTU.
Driscoll: OK. Go ahead.
Jack: 8185550539.
Driscoll: Iíll get back to you as soon as Iíve got an ID.
Jack: Iíll be standing by.
[Jack hangs up.]
Driscoll: Edgar, I need you to run a locate on this number.
Edgar: Itís a cellular account.
Driscoll: Can you trace the location?
Edgar: I need to ping the number.
Driscoll: How?
Edgar: It has to ring at least four times before I can triangulate the coordinates. Jamison can have me set up in a couple of minutes.
------------------------
[Navi goes to the home of Farrah, Dinaís sister. He knocks on the door.]
Farrah: Who is it?
Navi: Navi.
Farrah: Navi?
[Farrah opens the door.]
Farrah: What are you doing here?
Navi: Iím looking for Dina.
Farrah: Dinaís not here. Why would she be?
Navi: She hasnít called you in the last hour?
Farrah: No. Whatís going on, Navi?
Navi: Why are you blocking the door?
Farrah: Iím not.
Navi: Let me in.
Farrah: I told you, sheís not here.
Navi: Youíre lying. Youíre hiding her.
Farrah: No, Iím not!
[Navi barges into the house.]
Farrah: Navi, no! You have no right to come in here like this! Sheís not here. Look.
[Navi looks for Dina.]
Farrah: That is my bedroom. You canít go in there!
[Navi opens the bedroomís door. A man emerges from the bedroom.]
Man: What the hellís going on here?
Farrah: Nothing. Itís OK. Navi, please. Please go.
Man: Look, pal, this is none of your business, all right? So why donít you hike in on out of here?
Farrah: Please, donít interfere.
Man: You can either walk out of here, or Iím gonna throw you out. I said go!
[Navi pulls out a gun on the man.]
Farrah: No, Navi, please, No! Navi, donít. Please.
Navi: Get back inside.
[The man gets back inside the bedroom.]
Farrah: Navi. Donít tell my husband, I beg of you.
Navi: You disgust me.
Farrah: NaviÖ
[Navi walks out. He calls one of his men.]
Navi: Dinaís not here. What about the hospitals?
Man: Nothing so far.
Navi: Keep looking.
------------------------
[Dina and Behrooz hide out in a hotel room. Dinaís cell phone rings.]
Dina: Is it your father?
Behrooz: I canít tell.
Dina: Donít answer it.
[At CTU, Edgar traces the phone number.]
Edgar: We got it.
Driscoll: Where?
Edgar: A hotel in Chatsworth.
Driscoll: Download the coordinates to Jackís PDA.
Tony: Hereís the backup.
[Jackís cell phone rings.]
Jack: Yeah?
Driscoll: We traced the call to a location. Weíre sending it to you now.
Jack: Hold on a second. OK, I got it. Weíre less than ten minutes out.
Driscoll: Iíll have a tactical team emplaced by the time you get there.
Jack: Thank you.
[Jack hangs up. He goes over to talk to someone.]
Jack: His bodyís over there by my car. He was taken out by a sniper from the north roof. I want you to take your photographs, get the body back to CTU as fast as possible. Come on, Tony. We gotta go.
Tony: Wait, Jack. Look, uhÖ I think Iím done here today.
Jack: What are you talking about?
Tony: CTU backupís here. You donít need me anymore.
Jack: I need you to see this through with me.
Tony: I appreciate the sentiment, Jack, but you donít have to prop up my ego.
Jack: Tony, this isnít about you. If we donít find the override device within an hour, weíre gonna have six major nuclear disasters. So, please, get in the car. Letís go.
[Jack and Tony get in the car and drive.]
------------------------
[Dina is feverish and holds a bloody towel to her gunshot wound.]
Behrooz: Mom, weíve got to get you some help.
Dina: Iím OK.
Behrooz: Iím sorry. This is my fault.
Dina: Your father shot me, not you.
Behrooz: Because you were trying to stop him from killing me.
Dina: Everything thatís happened today, what weíve all been fighting to achieveÖ itís more important to him than anything or anyone.
Behrooz: But not to you. Mom? I need to get you something for the pain.
Dina: Iíll be fine. I just need to rest.
Behrooz: I can get it from Naseem.
Dina: No.
Behrooz: The hospital he works at is right near here. Iíll be right back.
Dina: Naseem doesnít know why we were really living here.
Behrooz: Mom, heís your brother. Iíll tell him you need it and nothing else. I promise. Iíll be right back.
Dina: Just hurry.
Behrooz: I will.
[Behrooz heads to the hospital.]
------------------------
Driscoll: Mr. Secretary. We have a meltdown. San Gabriel island reactorís just gone critical. Core material is now airborne.
Heller: I thought we had more time.
Agent: Ms. Driscoll, I have Derek Rosner, the engineer of San Gabriel Island, on with the NRC. One of the generators exploded, cooped their com lines, so the feed is unstable. We may only have a few seconds.
Driscoll: Patch us in.
Edgar: Whatís going on?
Driscoll: We had a meltdown in San Gabriel Island.
Rosner: All attempts to contain the core failed. Right now my men are trying to bypass the reactor tread. Thatís not working either.
Driscoll: Mr. Rosner, this is Erin Driscoll from CTU. Can you hear me?
Rosner: Yes, maíam, I can.
Driscoll: Iím here with Secretary of Defense James Heller. What are your radiation levels?
Rosner: Weíre at, uhÖ 500 gram right now. Thatís 10,000 times the dose of an X-ray. At this room the radiation will continue getting stronger, and weíll spill into the atmosphere until the core has exhausted itself.
Heller: Son, youíve done everything you can. Now, get the hell out of there.
Rosner: That wonít make any difference, sir. Weíve already been exposed.
[The feed shuts down.]
Agent: We lost it.
------------------------
Heller: Have we analyzed the radiation waveís movement?
Curtis: Weíre still waiting for NGS to get the weather side front refreshed.
Heller: Get on the phone and have them expedite.
Curtis: I will as soon as Iím done re-reading these evacuation instructions.
Heller: Canít someone else do that?
Curtis: No, sir. Short manpower.
[Heller opens up the TV.]
News Reporter on TV: Our government spokesman has just confirmed that a nuclear reactor at San Gabriel Island is in full meltdown. Emergency personnel are onsite attempting to rescue workers exposed to radiation.
Edgar: Youíre not listening to me. Iíve been trying to get through to a number at the San Gabriel evacuation zone for ten minutes. I need you to link me into access at the emergency bandwidth and I need you to do it now.
Man: All right. Stand by.
Edgar: Thank you.
News Reporter on TV: Now, if you are on the road or awaiting instructions about an evacuation in your neighborhood, here are some items you and your family might need: a flashlight, extra batteriesÖ
Edgarís Mom: Hello?
Edgar: Mom.
Edgarís Mom: Oh, hello, Edgar.
Edgar: Have you seen the news?
Edgarís Mom: Yes, Iím watching it now.
Edgar: Then why arenít evacuated by now? What are you still doing home?
Edgarís Mom: You know I donít have a car.
Edgar: Whereís Margaret?
Edgarís Mom: Well, Iíve tried to get hold of her, but the lines are all busy. Iím surprised you got through.
Edgar: What about one of your neighbors? Canít you get a ride from one of them?
Edgarís Mom: No, by the time I got outside, they were all gone.
Edgar: Mom, listen to me. Iím gonna make some calls. Iím gonna get someone there to help you, OK? I want you to sit by the phone and wait for my call. Can you do that?
Edgarís Mom: Yes. IÖ I donít really have a choice.
Edgar: Iíll call you back, OK?
Edgarís Mom: OK, honey. Bye.
------------------------
Man: No, we delegated that whole situation to margin groups, sir.
Heller: Iím not interested in who got it wrong. We donít have the luxury of miscommunication. Iím assigning someone from my office to coordinate between the State Police and the National Guard. Set up a conference call in ten minutes. Thank you all.
[Audrey comes in the conference room.]
Heller: Are you OK?
Audrey: Yeah. How are you holding up?
Heller: Considering the situation weíre in, Iím doing fine. The truth of the matter is, we do not have the manpower to handle this mess.
Audrey: Tell me what I can do.
Heller: Iíve prioritized evacuation protocol, but I need someone to keep the State Police and the National Guard from bumping into each other.
Audrey: All right. IíllÖ Iíll stop the Guard at the 75th mile marker and let the police take over from there. Weíll maximize room for civilian traffic.
Heller: I wish we had some other way to get those people out of there.
Audrey: Thereís no one else to route them.
Heller: Jack has got to find the override before the rest of these reactors go critical.
------------------------
[Jack and Tony pull up to the hotel, where other agents are waiting.]
Castle: Hey, Jack. Good to have you in the field again.
Jack: Thanks, Lee. You remember Tony Almeida?
Castle: Yeah. I donít know what heís doing here, though.
Jack: I want him here.
Castle: Heís not authorized to be in the field.
Jack: Iím going through that door first. I want him there to back me up.
Castle: Fine. Get another vest.
Jack: You got a visual on the suspects?
Castle: Weíve got a fiber-optic camera inside the room. According to the manager, weíre grabbing a mid-40ís female and a teenage male, possibly mother and son. Both Middle Eastern.
Jack: OK. We need the suspects alive. Theyíre no good to us dead.
Castle: Iíve been briefed.
Jack: Letís go.
[]
Agent: Agent Castle, we got a visual on the woman.
Tony: What about the kid?
Agent: I havenít seen him yet.
[Jack looks at his watch.]
Jack: We gotta go. Now.
[The agents approach the room.]
Jack: Are you ready?
Tony: Go.
[Jack and the agents raid the room.]
Jack: Donít move!
[Dina draws a gun to her own temple.]
Jack: Drop the weapon!
[Jack grabs the gun before Dina can kill herself. Castle holds Dina down, pressing on her wound.]
Castle: Where is the override? Tell me whoís got it. Tell me. Now!
Jack: Agent Castle!
Tony: Castle, stand down!
Jack: Agent Castle!
Tony: Please, stand down!
[Tony pulls Castle off.]
Castle: We gotta get her to talk.
Tony: Sheís gonna go into shock before she dies. Just relax.
Jack: Agent Castle, step outside. Now! I want her prints and photographs sent over to CTU immediately.
Castle: He has no right to give me orders.
Jack: Hey. Come here. He did the right thing. That woman was willing to kill herself. Sheíd die before she gave us anything to reforce.
Castle: We need to get her to talk before the other reactors go critical.
Jack: And we will.
Castle: Whatíd you have in mind?
[Jack calls CTU.]
Jack: We need to find some leverage.
Agent: CTU.
Jack: Yeah, itís Jack. Put me through to Erin.
Tony (to Dina): Come on. Let me see your arm.
Driscoll: Driscoll.
Jack: Erin, weíve got a suspect. Iím sending you fingerprints and photographs. I need you to run a profile and send me all relevant databases and electronic communications.
Driscoll: Got it.
Jack: Thank you.
[Jack hangs up and turns to Castle.]
Jack: Hey. I understand your concerns about Almeida. But for me, please, just give him a break.
Castle: OK, Jack.
Tony: Jack!
Jack: Thanks.
[Jack comes back inside the room.]
Jack: Yeah?
Tony: This is a bullet wound. Probably a couple of hours old.
------------------------
[Behrooz goes to Lindauer Memorial Hospital to see his Uncle Naseem.]
News Reporter on TV: As the evacuation appears now to be in a full swing with major delays onÖ
Behrooz: Excuse me.
News Reporter on TV: A Nuclear Emergency Team has just emerged from the plant, which we can see over here in our sky cam. They seem to be doing some kind ofÖ
Naseem: Behrooz.
Behrooz: Uncle Naseem.
Naseem: Are you all right?
Behrooz: Yeah, I think so.
Naseem: Yeah, itís a disaster, whatís happening today. Everyoneís panicked about radiation poisoning. They all want araldite pills and weíre almost out. Is that why youíre here?
Behrooz: No. I need pain medication. Itís for my mother. She couldnít reach her doctor by phone, so she wanted me to get it from you.
Naseem: Whatís wrong with her?
Behrooz: Itís her back. She can barely walk.
Naseem: She needs a prescription.
Behrooz: IÖ I told you. She couldnít reach her doctor.
Naseem: Iíll see what I can do, OK? Just have a seat.
[Naseem goes into an office and dials Navi.]
Navi: Yes?
Naseem: Navi, itís Naseem.
Navi: Hello, Naseem. How are you?
Naseem: Iím well, but Behrooz just showed up at the hospital. He seems disturbed.
Navi: Is Dina there too?
Naseem: No. He says he needs pain medication for her, that thereís something wrong with her back, but heís acting very strange.
Navi: Iím sorry you have to be involved in this, Naseem.
Naseem: Involved in what? Whatís going on?
Navi: Behrooz may be taking drugs. Itís been getting worse.
Naseem: Iím sorry.
Navi: Me too.
Naseem: What do you want me to do?
Navi: Keep Behrooz there until I can come for him.
Naseem: How long will you be?
Navi: 15 minutes.
Naseem: Iíll do my best, butÖ
Navi: Please, Naseem. Donít let him leave until I get there.
------------------------
News Reporter on TV: The government is asking people to remain calmÖ
Edgar: Excuse me, Miss Raines, Iím Edgar Stiles. Sorry.
Audrey (over the phone): Weíve got a major noncompliance problem. Iíve got 25 percent of the evacuees who arenít going where theyíre being told to go, and another 25 percent that donít even know that theyíre in the evac zone. However you need to do it, make sure it gets done. (To Edgar) Iím sorry. What is it?
Edgar: Itís my mother.
Audrey: Your mother?
Edgar: She lives in the San Gabriel Island. Sheís in a wheelchair. She doesnít drive. She missed her call to evacuate. Now I donít know what to do.
Audrey: Maybe someone from the National Guard can get her.
Edgar: I already spoke to the area commander and he said he couldnít spear anyone.
Audrey: Iím sorry, Iím not sure what I can do.
Edgar: Hereís his number. I thought maybe if you called him yourselfÖ Look, I hate asking for special treatment, thatís not something I would normally do, but sheís my mother.
Audrey: I canít make any promises.
Edgar: Just promise me youíll try, OK?
Audrey: All right.
------------------------
Tony: I want you to give her something for the pain, but make sure she stays lucid, you understand?
[Jack pulls up Dina and Naviís records on a laptop.]
Tony: Did you find out who she is yet?
Jack: Yeah. Her name is Dina Araz. She immigrated to the United States five years ago, became a citizen two years ago. Married to Navi Araz. Heís also a nationalized citizen. Owns an electronics store in Carson. They have one son, Behrooz, 17. A junior at the local high school. None of them have criminal records.
Tony: Did they pop up on any watch lists?
Jack: No. They must have slipped under the radar. Letís send some teams over to the house and the store, see what we can find.
[Jackís cell phone rings.]
Jack: Yeah?
Driscoll: Jack, itís Driscoll. Homeland Security hasÖ
Jack: Hold on, Erin. I can barely hear you.
[Jack goes outside the room. Tony follows.]
Jack: Go ahead.
Driscoll: After the attack this morning Homeland Security has been archiving select communications in the LA area. They pulled up a call that may explain how Dina Araz got shot.
Jack: Erin, Iím gonna put you on speaker phone. Hold on a second. Youíre on.
Driscoll: This conversation happened about two hours ago between the mother and the son.
[Driscoll plays the recorded conversation between Dina and Behrooz.]
Behrooz: 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. Tariq told me everything.
Dina: He was lying.
Behrooz: No, he wasnít. 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?
Behrooz: Yes.
Dina: Hide it. Iíll pick you up there in a half hour.
Behrooz: Hurry.
Driscoll: Thatís it. Let me know the minute you get something from her.
Jack: Yeah.
[Jack hangs up.]
Jack: We got our leverage.
[Jack comes back inside the room.]
Jack: How long have you been planning this operation? Two years? Five years? Ten? All this planning for one day. You do realize if all the reactors melt down hundreds of thousands of people will die.
Dina: Every war has casualties.
Jack: These people donít know about your war. These people are innocent.
Dina: No one is innocent.
Jack: You really believe that?
Dina: As strongly as you believe in what you believe. But I wonít waste your time or mine trying to explain something you can never understand.
Jack: Maybe I understand more than you think.
Dina: I doubt it.
Jack: I know that something happened today that challenged your commitment to your war. You werenít willing to let your son become a casualty. Thatís why you were shot, protecting him from his father. I understand that. I know what itís like to watch your child be threatened and feel helpless to do anything about it. Right now Behrooz is out there alone, and you and I know heís not gonna last very long. His father will find himÖ and kill him. There is another option. If you were to help us find the override device, we will protect your son.
Dina: So he can spend the rest of his life in prison?
Jack: No, so he can walk away from all of this, immune from prosecution.
Dina: How?
Jack: Mrs. Araz, your son is a minor. Heís 17 years old. I can get him a legal and binding pardon signed by the President of the United States.
Dina: You donít have the authority to do this.
Jack: I can reach the President. If you provide us with the information that allows us to find the override device in time, I am confident that the President will sign that pardon. And this offer expires the second another reactor melts down, do you understand me? You donít have a lot of time. I would think about this.
Dina: Show me this document, and Iíll help you find what you want.
------------------------
[Jack explains the situation to Keeler over the phone.]
Keeler: Can we rule out this boyís involvement with the terrorist action?
Jack: No, sir. Itís likely he knew of his parents plans. He probably helped them.
Keeler: Jack, youíre asking me to grant clemency to a terrorist.
Jack: Mr. President, Iím sorry, but I donít think we have a choice. In all of my professional experience, I believe that we have to give into this womanís demands.
Keeler: Have you tried negotiating with her?
Jack: We donít have time. In approximately two hours, five nuclear reactor are gonna go critical unless we find the override device. She is our only link.
Keeler: Well, Iím uncomfortable with this, but I trust your judgment. Iíll release the letter.
Jack: Thank you, Mr. President.
[Jack hangs up.]
Keeler (to aide): Make sure that document is non-binding.
------------------------
Audrey (over the phone): Yes, I understand. Iíll get back to you.
Edgar: Ms. Raines? Did you talk to them?
Audrey: Yes. Edgar, Iím sorry. They canít get your mother.
Edgar: Why not? Theyíre five miles off the highway. It wouldnít take that much time.
Audrey: They know where she is.
Edgar: Then whatís the problem?
Audrey: Thousands of people are stuck in the interstate traffic and itís taking the combined efforts of the police and the National Guard to get them moving.
Edgar: So who cares about one old woman?
Audrey: Theyíve gotta throw their resources into saving the maximum number of lives.
Edgar: If my mother were rich or a politician, theyíd find a way to save her.
[Edgar dials the phone.]
Woman: DOD, Communication Department.
Edgar: This is Edgar Stiles. I need another switch in station to that number. Do you need it again?
Woman: No, Iíve got it from before.
Edgar: Thank you.
Woman: Go ahead.
Edgar: Mom.
Edgarís mom: Hello, honey.
Edgar: Mom, Iíve been trying everything. I canít get anyone out there to help you. Iíve done everything I could, I did.
Edgarís mom: Iím sure you did, honey. Itís OK.
Edgar: Itís not OK. The falloutís coming toward you. Itís 15 miles away.
Edgarís mom: I know. Iím watching it on the news. And I know what to do.
Edgar: Mom, thereís nothing you can do. You canít stuff towels under the door.
Edgarís mom: Thatís not what Iím talking about doing, Edgar.
Edgar: What do you mean?
Edgarís mom: Theyíve been talking about radiation poisoning on the news. Thatís not something I wanna go through, especially since thereís only one way it can end. Honey, I wanna end things on my terms, as opposed to all that pain and suffering.
Edgar: Mom.
Edgarís mom: Itís the right thing to do. Itís the only thing, you know that.
Edgar: No, I donít.
Edgarís mom: You have been a wonderful son, Edgar. Youíve been a gift to me and your father. Itís OK. Iím going to a better place and Iíll see you there, but not for a long time. Youíve got a lot ahead of you, great things.
Edgar: Maybe I can get someone to you. Iíll keep trying.
Edgarís mom: Youíve got a very important job to do there. A lot of people are counting on you. SoÖ Iím gonna hang up now, and I want you to know how very very much I love you.
Edgar: Mom.
[Edgarís mom hangs up.]
Edgar: Mom.
[Edgar gets up to leave CTU.]
Driscoll: Edgar, where are you going? Edgar!
Edgar: I have to get out of here.
Driscoll: What are you talking about?
Edgar: My mother. She lives next to the San Gabriel Island nuclear plant. She wasnít able to evacuate in time.
Driscoll: We still have five other nuclear reactors that are on the verge of melting down. I need you at your station.
Edgar: I donít care what you need!
Driscoll: You better start caring. You have a choice right now. Obey orders, or end up in a jail cell.
Edgar: Youíll arrest me for trying to save my motherís life?
Driscoll: Edgar, what youíre saying is true. Thereís nothing you can do for your mother. But there are thousands of other people whose lives you can save, and suppose your mother were here right now, what would make her proud? What do you think sheíd want you to do?
Edgar: Sheíd want me to help.
Driscoll: Then donít you think you should?
[Edgar returns to his workstation.]
------------------------
Agent: Weíre ready to go. Weíre just setting up the com files.
[Jack brings Dina a faxed pardon from the President.]
Jack: This is a pardon for your son, signed by the President.
Dina: This is acceptable.
Jack: Where is he?
Dina: Heís at Lindauer Memorial Hospital. Itís not far.
Castle: Set up a perimeter around Lindauer Memorial.
Jack: I want you to call him, tell him weíre coming to pick him up. Give me the phone. We have to record the call.
[Dina calls Behrooz.]
Behrooz: Hello?
Dina: Itís me. Where are you?
Behrooz: Waiting for Naseem. I donít know why itís taking so long.
Dina: Donít worry about that now. Things have changed.
Behrooz: What do you mean?
Dina: Listen carefully, Behrooz. Government agents found me. Iím with them now. Behrooz, they know everything.
Naseem: Behrooz, just a few more minutes, OK?
Dina: But itís all right. Everything is going to be all right. I made a deal.
Behrooz: What are you talking about?
Dina: Youíre going to be OK. You wonít be arrested or even named in any of this.
Behrooz: I donít understand.
Dina: Iím going to help them stop your father.
Behrooz: You are?
Dina: Yes.
Behrooz: You said that I would be OK, but what about you?
Dina: Weíll talk about that later. Right now these men are coming to pick you up. I want you to go with them.
Behrooz: Are they making you say this?
Dina: No.
Behrooz: I donít know who these people are. I want to be sure that theyíre not forcing you to say this.
Dina: Iíll come with them. Youíll know that when you see me, OK?
Behrooz: Iíll meet you outside.
Jack: No. Tell him to go to the emergency room. I want him to stay where itís crowded.
Dina: Did you hear that?
Behrooz: Yes.
Dina: Iíll see you in a few minutes, Behrooz.
Behrooz: OK.
Tony: Weíre transferring the suspect. They want him sent over to protective court right away.
Castle: Copy that.
Jack: Letís go.
[Jack, Tony and Castle take Dina with them to the hospital.]
------------------------
Behrooz: Uncle Naseem. I have to go.
Naseem: What about the pain medication?
Behrooz: My momís got one from someone else, but thanks for trying.
Naseem: Behrooz! I canít let you go.
Behrooz: Why not?
Naseem: I spoke to your father.
Behrooz: What?
Naseem: He told me you need help.
Behrooz: You donít know what youíre talking about.
Naseem: Hey, hey, hey. I gave your father my word.
Behrooz: My father is a terrorist. Heís involved in whatís happened today.
Naseem: Stop talking nonsense.
Behrooz: I swear itís true.
Naseem: Youíre talking nonsense!
Behrooz: No, Iím not! Heís behind the kidnapping this morning and the reactors melting down. Weíre all involved - My mother and me. Weíve killed people.
Naseem: Your father will be furious when he hears this.
Behrooz: Fatherís coming here? No!
[Behrooz runs out.]
Naseem: Behrooz!
[Naseem chases Behrooz. As he is fleeing the hospital, Behrooz runs right into Navi. Naseem comes up behind Behrooz.]
Naseem: I tried to stop him.
[Navi shoots Naseem dead. Navi grabs his son and drags him into the stairwell.]
Behrooz: You broke my heart, Behrooz. You broke my heart.
[Navi presses a gun to Behroozís forehead.]
Behrooz: If you kill me, mother will tell them everything.
Navi: Tell who?
Behrooz: The police. Sheís with them.
Navi: I donít believe you.
Behrooz: Itís the truth. She wants me to be safe, and if you kill me, she will ruin everything youíre doing.
Navi: No!
Behrooz: If you donít believe me, look outside. Theyíre coming to pick me up.
------------------------
[Navi runs with Behrooz down the stairwell.]
Behrooz: Help!
Navi: Shut up!
[Jack, Tony and Dina pull up next to the hospital.]
Jack: Tony, did you notify security?
Tony: No.
Dina: Something is wrong.
Jack: Set up a level 3 cordon around the hospital.
Castle: You got it.
Dina: Iím going with you.
Jack: No, youíre not!
[Jack gets out of the car and runs inside the hospital.]
Jack: Whatís going on here?
Security Guard: Thereís been a shooting.
Jack: Who?
Security Guard: One of the pharmacists. Who are you?
Jack: My name is Jack Bauer. I work at the Counter Terrorist Unit. Weíve been tracking the man who did the shooting. Where is he?
Security Guard: Someone just radioed in from the C wing. Saw a Middle Eastern man running. He has a hostage.
Jack: A 17-year-old boy?
Security Guard: I think so.
Jack: What are the possible exits from that wing?
Security Guard: From where he was spotted, heís pretty much caught at the end of an east parking garage. We got men headed there now.
Jack: You tell your supervisor to tell his men to back off. No one makes contact with him, do you understand me?
Security Guard: All right.
[Jack calls Tony.]
Tony: Hang on a second.
Castle: All right. Have your men on both sidesÖ
[Tony takes the call.]
Tony: Yeah?
Jack: Tony, itís Jack. Navi Araz is here. Heís already killed his wifeís brother.
Tony: What about the boy?
Jack: I donít know. Weíre gonna have to lock down all the exits. I think heís headed for the parking garage. I need you to meet me on the east side of the building with backup.
Tony: Copy that. Weíre going to the east side of the building. We need backup teams there right away.
[Jack waits for the elevator. It is taking too long. He goes down the stairwell.]
Jack: Dammit.
[Tony gets inside the car and drives it.]
Dina: Whatís happening?
Tony: Weíre still looking for your son.
Dina: Thereís more. Tell me.
Tony: Mrs. Araz, weíre gonna find your son, all right?
[Navi takes Behrooz into the parking garage.]
Behrooz: I hate you. Iíve always hated you. The only reason I never said so was because I was afraid of you. But Iím not afraid of you anymore!
Navi: Get in.
Behrooz: Go to hell.
[Navi slaps Behrooz.]
Navi: Get in!
[Navi throws Behrooz into the car and drives. Tony pulls into the garage as Jack comes down the stairwell into the same lot.]
Tony: Jack, weíre in the garage now. Weíve secured the exit.
Jack: Iím almost there. Can you get an ID?
Tony: No, nothing yet.
[Jack sees Navi driving toward him and he fires at the carís tires. Navi smashes into Jack, who crashes onto the windshield. Jack rolls off and keeps firing at the car, popping one of its tires. Navi gets out of the car with Behrooz at gunpoint.]
Jack: Let me see your hands! Put your hands where I can see them now!
Navi: Careful!
Jack: Drop the gun!
Navi: Youíll hit the boy!
Jack: Let the boy go! We can work this out. I will put my gun down if you give me the boy. All I want is the boy!
Navi: Stand down!
Jack: Put the gun down!
Navi: Stand down!
Jack: Put the gunÖ
[Tony arrives, and Dina sees her son.]
Jack: Tony, stop the car.
Dina: Behrooz!
Behrooz: Mom!
[Navi takes Behrooz into a door.]
Jack: Keep her in the car. Letís seal all the exits of the basement. Heís got nowhere to go but down. Set up a link with CTU now!
Tony: Copy that. Call CTU. We need backup here. Mrs. Araz, calm down. Weíll get your son, all right? Calm down.
------------------------
[Jack talks with Driscoll over the phone.]
Driscoll: Weíve uploaded the plans to you from the building department. There are only three exits from the hospitalís basement.
Jack: Weíve got all entrances and exits covered. Heís trapped down there.
Tony: Letís try to open up a negotiation.
Dina: My husband wonít negotiate.
Tony: Why is that?
Dina: He doesnít need to. He has to assume I have agreed to help you in return for my sonís safety.
Tony: Well, he canít stay down there with him forever.
Dina: He wonít. In two hours, all the reactors will have gone critical. After that, it wonít matter what I tell you, and he can kill my son. I am only helping you to save his life. I believe in our cause, and if you canít save my son, I am happy to see the reactors melt down.
Jack (to Driscoll): Did you get that?
