Earlier this month FOX asked fans to vote on Jack Bauer’s greatest lines at JackBauersGreatest.com and now the voting period is over and winners have been chosen.
Overall Winner (best of all seasons)
The very final scene of the series (Jack and Chloe saying their goodbyes) has been chosen by 24 fans as the best line. Hard to argue with this pick.
Here’s the other winners:
24 Season 1 Winner
“You probably don’t think that I can force this towel down your throat. But trust me, I can, all the way. Except I hold onto this one little bit at the end. When your stomach starts to digest it, I pull it out, taking your stomach lining with it.” (Episode 11, 10:00AM – 11:00AM)
24 Season 2 Winner
“Nina: He is going to put a bullet in my head before I can say hello and then he is going to turn the gun on himself!
Jack: We’ll make sure he doesn’t turn the gun on himself.” (Episode 7, 2:00PM – 3:00PM)
24 Season 3 Winner

Then I’m gonna move over and take out your left, then I’m going to cut you. I’m gonna keep cutting you until I get the information that I need, you understand me? So for the last time, where is the nerve gas?” (Episode 6, 12:00PM – 1:00PM)

24 Season 6 Winner
“Do you understand the difference between dying for something and dying for nothing? The only reason I fought so hard to stay alive in China was because I didn’t want to die for nothing. Today I can die for something – my way, my choice.” (Episode 1, 6:00AM – 7:00AM)
