[chasing a suspect]
Jack Bauer: I wish you hadn't called for backup.
Jessie Hampton: Why?
Jack Bauer: Because cops have to play by the rules. I may have to break a few with this guy.
Police Officer: Freeze!
Jack Bauer: Federal agent!
Police Officer: Your badge! Nice and slowly.
Jack Bauer: I'm putting my gun down.
[puts his gun down, takes out his I.D. and throws it towards the police officer]
Police Officer: [looking at the I.D] CTU? What the hell is that?
Jack Bauer: Counter Terrorist Unit. I am federal agent Jack Bauer, I am following a suspect. Shoot me or help me but decide now!
Police Officer: OK, I will help you.
President Palmer: Jack, what about Ellis? Was he able to retrieve the missing file on Operation Nightfall?
Jack Bauer: I lost contact with Ellis.
President Palmer: "Lost contact"? What do you mean?
Jack Bauer: I mean we got interrupted in the middle of our phone call. Sir, I have to be honest with you. I've got a very bad feeling about this.
President Palmer: So what are you telling me?
Jack Bauer: I'm telling you that for now, we should assume Ellis is dead.
President Palmer: Keep me posted.
Jack Bauer: Yes, sir.
Ira Gaines: Be good and you'll be back at the mall in a day or two, be bad and you won't.
