"Trust Me, I'm Not"
In six years, 24 has gone from a programming stunt to a cultural phenomenon. It has entered the lexicon of political dialogue, and become a flash point of controversy for daring to portray Muslims as terrorists. (Can't be having that on a fictional program, after all, when the news never has anything like it.)
But tonight, the best line in any of the "worst days of Jack's life"...a line that captures the character, both of the show and Jack. Preparing to torture his own brother (who turns out to be one of the head bad guys) he warned that he was prepared to hurt him. "You're already hurting me," the brother said...to which Jack replied, "Trust me, I'm not." Can't wait to see how this turns out.
