4 from 24: More on hour 17
* Warning: Spoilers ahead from the latest episode.*
The suitcase nukes have been located. Audrey Raines is alive, but in peril. Jack Bauer is likely going to be coerced into making a horrendous deal in exchange for her safe return.
While 24 fans mull these new developments, here are four choice moments from hour 17:
Quote of note: "My God! They were lying to us all the time! Withholding information. And you knew it!" an incredulous chief of staff, Tom Lennox, said to the uber-tricky President Wayne Palmer after Palmer pretended to launch a nuclear missile attack in order to get the Country Whose Name We Shall Not Mention to cough up intel on a terrorist.
Moment of tension between CTU staffers: CTU analyst Milo Pressman was in a jealous snit because the woman after whom he lusts -- Nadia Yassir -- showed compassion for Pressman's new nemesis, Mike "The Brawler" Doyle (as opposed to his old nemesis, Morris "Drill-Bit" O'Brian). "The guy's a creep and a sadist!" Pressman said of Doyle.
Quotes of note II & III: I just couldn't choose between these Jack quips directed at terrorist Abu Fayed, when our intrepid hero was roughly interrogating him. "Trust me, I haven't begun to enjoy myself," Jack said early in the episode. This was followed a bit later by this gem, "Now we're gonna have some fun."
ACLU nightmare moment of the week: Come on. Is there really any question what moment wins here?Jack. Fayed. Chain. Discuss amongst yourselves.
