President James Heller : Have you found Adrian Cross? Does he still have the override device?
Jack Bauer : Sir, Adrian Cross is dead, and the override device is gone, but I know who has it. Mr. President, you're not gonna believe this, but it's Cheng Zhi.
President James Heller : That's not possible.
Jack Bauer : I just heard a recording of his voice on a phone left behind by Chloe O'Brian.
President James Heller : Jack, Cheng was killed three years ago trying to escape from a Chinese prison. Our sources in China confirm that.
Jack Bauer : Mr. President, I thought so, too, but we were wrong. Sir, this man held me captive and tortured me for over a year and a half. I would never forget his voice. I promise you, it's him.
Mark Boudreau : I am not working for Russians! I thought Bauer was a traitor! I thought he was here to assassinate you. The Russians have been pushing us for four years to turn him over to them. So, yes, I... I... I forged your signature on the rendition order. I thought I was killing two birds with one stone.
President James Heller : I can't believe what you're telling me.
Mark Boudreau : Sir, as long as Jack Bauer is free, he is our political liability. I was trying to turn him into an asset. I was doing my job.
President James Heller : Your job?
Mark Boudreau : Mr. President, don't be so naïve. My job is to keep your hands clean. That means mine get dirty. I had no idea Anatol Stolnavich was working with Cheng.
