* ThrowItIn: Aaron Pierce addressing President Logan as 'Charles' at the end of his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech was an ad lib by Glenn Morshower. Gregory Itzin's stunned reaction was the real thing and it was kept in because of how awesome and fitting it was.

* {{Jossed}}: Once Teri Bauer began showing shades of being an ActionGirl, a theory popped up that she was a former CTU agent, or worked with another intelligence agency. Aside from the fact that this almost ''certainly'' would have come up during the season, it's thoroughly {{Jossed}} by the tie-in comics; she was and always had been a civilian with no intelligence background. She was just a badass.
