Hello readers! I've developed an interactive game around a sample of dialogue from the thrilling premiere of the sixth season of 24.* Surely you all remember Mad Libs, the wacky word game your parents threw at you when you were annoying them on long car rides. Well, I've discovered that this childhood activity perfectly aligns with 24's dialogue. See below for the word blanks, and some suggestions from me on how to fill them in!
SCENE: Jack is in pursuit of a terrorist who is driving on a freeway with a nuclear weapon in his trunk. Accompanying him on this mission is a former bad guy looking to atone. Jack is on his cell, Blackberry, GPS, walkie-talkie, and carrier pigeon with the folks back at CTU.
CHLOE: Hello, lover.
JACK: THERE'S NO TIME FOR THAT! I'm pursuing a (terrorist group) agent and I need your help.
CHLOE: OK, I'm setting up the (tracking device) now. How did you find him?
JACK: I'm working with (foreign name).
CHLOE: You're working with (foreign name)?!? But he's a known (unsavory career title)!
JACK: Well, he's trying to make amends.
CHLOE: But he's killed hundreds of people!
JACK: Chloe, you have to trust me on this one. If you don't, (dire situation) could happen!
CHLOE: OK lov- I mean Jack. I trust you.
