This is a collection of memorable quotes from "Day 1: 5:00am-6:00am".

  • Nina Myers: (on Jack requisitioning a helicopter) He's tracking a lead.
  • Tony Almeida: And ignoring protocol again. First he assaults an agent to avoid lockdown, then he breaks a prisoner out of jail. What the hell's going on here? I thought we were supposed to be stopping an assassination...
  • Nina Myers: (emphatically) Stop following me Tony!
  • Tony Almeida: I prefer to think of it as watching your back.

  • Ira Gaines: See what happens when you lie? Don't ever lie to me Rick.
  • Rick Allen: I won't
  • Ira Gaines: Oh, I know you won't. Now bury your friend.
  • Rick Allen: Where?
  • Ira Gaines: (irritated) In the ground.

  • Kevin Carroll: We're all pretty wound up.
  • Teri Bauer: I think Jack's wound up a little tighter than the rest of us.

  • Teri Bauer: Our daughter's missing. Are you saying that relates to an assassination attempt?
  • Jack Bauer: They must know I've been assigned to protect Palmer.
  • Teri Bauer: And you think this person kidnapped Kim? Oh my god, oh my god...
  • Jack Bauer: Teri. I'm so sorry. I know this is all happening because of me. I've tried to keep a wall between my work and my family, and the wall's coming down now I don't know what to do.

  • David Palmer: Sorry to wake you like this, Mike, but something's come up. I was hoping to keep you out of it.
  • Mike Novick: I'm your Chief of Staff, David, I shouldn't be kept out of anything.
  • David Palmer: It was a private matter.
  • Mike Novick: You're running for president. Nothing's private anymore.

  • Mike Novick: The minute Maureen breaks the story you'll freefall in the polls. And the media'll start churning this thing. 24/7. They'll pick you clean. And go to work on the bones. Chances are, the party'll try to cut bait. So, I'd say, you're textbook unelectable.
  • David Palmer: So I'm right to withdraw from the race.
  • Mike Novick: No, that's the last thing you should do!

  • Ira Gaines: Now say something.
  • Jack Bauer: If you hurt my daughter, I will kill you.
  • Ira Gaines: Good. There's a nice clear signal.
