Jack Bauer: [In a Cessna plane with the bomb] What the hell are you doing here?
George Mason: [Sarcastically] I felt like taking a ride
Jack Bauer: how the hell did you get on this plane?
George Mason: It wasn't hard, some people still think I'm the head of CTU.
Jack Bauer: son of a bitch
George Mason: [takes out a parachute] I brought something for you.
Jack Bauer: I already told you, I'm taking this plane in.
George Mason: That might've made sense back on the ground but let's face it, the hard part is over, you took off and cleared the city, what's left is flying straight, stay level and take dive...

Fox's finest hour
2 March 2009 | by jkebttn71See all my reviews

Not only do the outstanding performances given by xander Berkeley(George Mason), Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer) and Elisha Cuthbert (Kim Bauer) live up to previous emotional moments but the script! Within 1 hour of screen time (taken from different episodes) the writer has created an audience- character bond between the dying George Mason who was previously a stubborn emotionless man who was merely a 'gap' character. the moving 'Goodbye' to the daughter was fantastically acted and the perhaps sadder scene on the plane was more subtly written. In his goodbye Mason makes some points which I had been thinking from the beginning of this series- 'Maybe you want to die'. such fantastic acting and smart character development; twenty four's finest hour and probably FOX's too! (why did Berkeley and Sutherland not get recognised for this?)
