Jericho: Home (Pilot)

Jake returns to his hometown of Jericho after being away for several years in order to collect on money his grandfather left for him. As the citizens of Jericho question Jake on the past five years, he remains secretive about his whereabouts. When Jake leaves for San Diego, he sees a nuclear explosion occur off in the distance, which marks the moment everyone's lives instantly change forever. With the aftermath of the nuclear explosion looming over them, the people of Jericho become paranoid about one another, resulting in hidden agendas and guarded secrets to be revealed. But in the terror of it all, some are able to find inner strength they never knew they had.

Episode Quotes
(When Old Man Oliver answers the door cocking his shotgun)
Johnston: Oh, Oliver, would you stop that.
Old Man Oliver: Sorry, Johnston. Thought you were Aliens. Well, we're under attack, by Aliens. Don't you know that?
Johnston: Yes, we do. That's why we're here. Do you have your Ham radio?
Old Man Oliver: Yeah, for you....50 cents.

Deputy: Are we under attack?
Johnston: Son, I don't want to hear that word again. Now look, this could have been a test. It could have been an accident. There's, uh, military bases near Denver. One explosion does not make an attack. If we stay calm, the town stays calm, okay.

Jake: We were both born on third base, stop pretending you hit a triple.
