Trivia: Jack's opening monologue changed subtly as the season moved on. It began, "Right now, terrorists are plotting to assassinate a presidential candidate, and my teenage daughter is missing." It then became, "...and my teenage daughter has been kidnapped," then "...my wife and daughter have been kidnapped," then, "...my wife and daughter are in danger," and finally, "...my wife and daughter have been targeted."

Trivia: Alberta Green, who makes her first appearance in this episode, was named for actress Alberta Watson, whom series creator Joel Surnow originally wanted to play the role. Ironically, Watson played Erin Driscoll, a character that is by-the-book, much like Green is, in Season 4.

Trivia: We get the impression from the first few episodes that Nina is trustworthy only to find out in the last 2 episodes that she was the main mole inside CTU. It's funny though that it was in front of our eyes the whole time, by accident or design: Every time that Jack says his famous starting monologue, when he comes to the part "and people I work with might be involved in both..." we see Nina looking at Jack.

Trivia: This is a very strange observation that I made of the scene where George enters Jack's office as he's changing. Just after George says he's in charge, Jack jokingly says, "So they thought you'd do a better job keeping an eye on me than Alberta would." Just at that moment, he kicks a shoebox out of his way, and the sound it makes sounds exactly like a rimshot of a drum, unintentionally making a mockery of the joke he just made.

Trivia: After coming up with the concept of a story taking place in real time over the course of one day, Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran originally planned on the show being about the 24 hours leading up to a wedding. After realizing that it would be difficult to think of reasons for a bride and groom to be forced to stay awake for 24 straight hours, they decided that the show could instead be about a federal agent being forced to protect a politician from assassination for 24 hours - which became the plot of season 1 and the basis for the show.
