Jack Bauer Listen Chloe. I need you to transfer $869,000 out of my bank account to a Mexican cattle drover named Michael Wayne Carr.

Chloe O'Brian Why?

Jack This deal is going to make me a lot of money. Carr buys cheap cattle in Mexico, sells it for a mark-up in Texas, then divides the profit with me.

Chloe Is that such a good idea, Jack? How much do we know about this guy? Couldn't it be a scam?

Jack Dammit, Chloe. I just gave you an order and I'd like you to follow it.


Jack Any word yet from Carr?

Chloe Er, no.

Jack Dammit!


Chloe The word from our people in Mexico is that no cows were ever bought down there. And they've never heard of Carr.

Jack That son of a bitch! Fetch my electrodes and put me on a plane to Mexico.

Chloe Is that such a good idea Jack? I mean, are you sure he's actually in Mexico?

Jack Dammit, Chloe!
