24 - Keeps on Ticking



I was reading Big Orange Michael's TV Round Up of 24 that he does each week (spoilers included) and he asks the question: ...Oh and who carries an extra PDA around to leave for people on a rooftop like that? Or was that Jack's that he took and then left.

Actually Michael, I understand your statement. I carry an extra PDA - A Palm LifeDrive because it has built in WiFi, thus I can do some Internet work and carry on my phone business on the Treo. I use to pack a lot of gear when my kids required diaper bags - now, it's a backpack with the essential gear and a mess of wires included.

In the scene when Jack Bauer dashes out to see where his father went to and spots a Palm Treo on the ledge, I sat up and realized "Where in the heck is MY Treo phone???" I had to put the show on pause, and use the home phone to call my cell phone...

It was in my Dallas Cowboys jacket (Michael is one of 60,000 long suffering Redskins fans - a subtle dig)...

By the way, the message on the phone was for Jack to call: 310-597-3781.



Call the number... and if you can translate the nice lady's message, could you leave a comment? Living in Nsshville, I'm restricted to English only, due to some councilmatic shenagigans.*

I carry both a Treo and a LifeDrive as well. Oh my goodness, I must be Asian!

I guess it seemed a bit too convient that Phillip Bauer would happen to have the extra cell phone/PDA to leave for Jack. Unless, of course, he was leaving his becuase he knew Jack knew the number and could trace him using it.

Which now that I say that, it makes more sense...

Actually, that phone was meant for JACK from Jack-In-The-Box. It was his wife's number asking him to bring home some fries and egg rolls!

:P
