"Jericho: Pilot (#1.1)" (2006)
Johnston Green: Sheriff, Chief. Damage? Fire? Buildings?
Sheriff: Nothing Mr. Mayor, the town's fine.
Johnston Green: Let us hope you're right.

Johnston Green: Hey, Shep? You said earlier that you had heard that speech before. Ever ask yourself why I say it? 'Cause I happen to trust you people. 'Cause I love my town. Now, something happened in Denver, in Atlanta, and it could be that we wake up and find out that's where it stopped. But, until we know, are we going to use our imaginations to solve problems or to cause them? Now, we can get the power back on. We can find out how big this thing is. If we have to we can fight. We can fight anybody, we can fight all enemies. The only way that's going to happen is if we work together. Now, go on home. We'll meet tomorrow at the town hall. And folks, don't you break my heart again.

Jake Green: Going out is more important then ever, alright? If this country is at war we need to know it!
