|Episode:||"Day 5: 7:00am-8:00am"|
Ned was the foreman in charge of personnel at an oil drilling field in Mojave, California.
Day 5 Edit
At 7am, Ned the foreman called out the names of five men (Jim Nichols, Sterling Rush, Patrick Priest, Phil Stone, and Greg Nelson) who were chosen to work at specific oil pumps. Frank Flynn, the alias of Jack Bauer, was not one of them. As "Frank" turned to leave, Ned apologized to him because, though he had promised him work, there was none available since his usual pump went down unexpectedly. Ned assured "Frank" that there would be a job the following day.
Ned was named by "Frank" when he explained to Diane Huxley why he was in his room instead of at work that morning.
Background information and notes Edit
- Some of the names which Ned the foreman called were the names of 24 crew members — Sterling Rush, Patrick Priest, and Phil Stone.
