Episode Notes
This episode was filmed during Season Three but got heldover and didn't air until Season Four. It's the only show of the final season which has a teaser for an opening instead of a page turner which was instituted for Season Four.

In this episode we get a rare glimpse of Agent Youngfellow with a cigarette although it's not lit.

Locations: Chicago, Boston



Episode Quotes
Mailer: (to Balter) Now that you're happy, time to make me happy.

Mailer: I'm telling you we've got to ship sooner.
Bauer: You're not telling me anything. I'm telling you.
