Lessons Spurned







FINALLY! I got this one done. The really sad part was I didn't come up with the ending until about three hours ago. This is probably the longest one I've ever had coming up with an idea-- it started small, then, as usual, my imagination got away from me, adding more and more cargo and just went right over the edge of Eastwood Ravine.

And yes, before you say anything, I'm not a big fan of Mary Sue'ing fandom, so don't worry,
it'll (probably) be the last time you see me in the 24'verse.

Well, that being said, let's touch on this week, yes?

SPOILER ALERT FOR HOUR 6!

First off, they spoiled us with having two nights with two hours apiece. Having only one hour this week again was torture.

Boy, the African leader Motobo and his wife just can't catch a break-- they get kidnapped and rescued by the same guys (Jack and Tony), and they STILL have to continue being kidnapped! Rough day.

Apparently Chloe picked up some dental correspondence while being a stay-at-home mom puttint that tooth transmitter in. Well, better that I guess than her being stuck on Warcraft for 12 hours a day.

And we have our first character victim! Oh Samantha. You were so lovely. You really didn't deserve a double stabbing. Gah, that had to be one of the most brutal on-screen deaths in the run of the show.

So how about Jack and Tony getting into not one, but two shootouts? Hot diggity!

I wonder what President Taylor's gonna do. She seems to be a no-nonsense woman. Hopefully she stays the course and relies on the FBI to capture Dubaku. *snicker* HAAHAAAHA! Oh god, that's funny... the FBI stopping this whole thing! Hee hee! Whooo... okay, breathe, breathe...

I'm really looking forward to seeing Bill in action next week. He was a field op in NYC CTU according to his jacket, so he knows how to handle himself. Just... stay alive, okay Bill? We need'ja.

By the way, what's up with Renee's new black leather jacket next week? Is it a rule when you join Mini-CTU that the company outfit is regulation black?

Back next week and on time! Adios!

I thought adding yourself was a pretty cute idea!

But Chloe's avatar...? Priceless!

Personally, I was cheering for Henry to stab Gedge when he had the knife...but damn that was a way for Gedge to go...

I am just waiting for Logan to show up, since we never saw him die...so he can then die.

I really thought Henry was going to do it right then too. Then again, gravity was his best weapon.

No Logan! At least not dying.

Glad you caught the Chloe icon! Nice job! Now see if you can find other jokes/puns/references in the chat...

I won't spoil the fun and find them all, but the "Zero Cool" reference was Dade Murphy's hacker name from "Hackers," which co-starred Angelina Jolie (and Dade, played by Jonny Lee Miller was married to her for a few years).

Janice's icon is pretty obvious. :)

The only other one I can think of is your comment about Eastwood Canyon. If you meant Eastwood Ravine, that is from Back to the Future, Part III.

Ding ding ding! Another point for catching the Hackers reference!

Janice's icon is actually Janeane's glasses for the character-- I just removed her face from the pic. I was originally going to go with a bowling ball, but I wanted to at least really point out something obvious with one of the characters so unfamiliars could understand by process of elimination who was who in the chat.

And although it wasn't meant to be a joke, you did in fact correctly point out Eastwood Ravine, which I should have known was a ravine and not a canyon, having watched it again not even two months ago. Originally Shoenash, then Clayton just to close off that bit of trivia. ;)

What is Chloe's avatar? I cant quite tell...

Lovin' the Hackers reference! Thats such a great movie.

That would be an M4 rifle, fast becoming standard issue in both military and law enforcement operations.

Chloe used one in Season 5 awkwardly to ventilate a would-be killer.

AND IT WAS AWESOMMMMME! ^_^

Heh, glad you caught the Hackers reference!

I am a complete dork.

Each episode has been nothing but a hunt for cubby for me. =)

Episode of the show or the comic? Heh heh.

I don't think evil Cubby will show up except back at Mini-CTU, and even then it's a stretch. Maybe they'll have a chase through a sports store and Tony will grab one on the way out.

ROFL what an awesome idea!

And I look for cubby everywhere.

I would love to see evil!cubby. Maybe have a little chip on the top left of the rim to mirror his owner.

I feel an icon idea coming for this. I'll see what I can do.

Aw, everyone loves Cubby. But we also need to be concerned about the welfare of his owner too you know!

as a huge cubs fan out of chicago myself... not having cubby around leaves an emptiness in Tony. I know it does....

Thanks!

Hey, were you the one that bought 24thecomicstrip.com and hotlinked it to the blog here?

Oh, okay. I just checked, but a little while ago (about a month or three) the link didn't work. I got nervous-- I use that to quickly tell people where to go to look at it. ;)

Sometimes you get the technical difficulties, but yeah, I've kept up the renewal for the domain, so it won't be going anywhere. :)

TPS---was that an Office Space reference? *grins* I LOVED this one, it's particularly amusing.

Ding ding ding! You get a cookie.

Thanks very much! I'm glad I make people's days better.
