This is a list of memorable quotes from Karen Hayes.

Day 5 Edit

  • Karen Hayes: I don't like to be threatened, Mr. Bauer.
  • Jack Bauer: Ms. Hayes, that's not a threat; that's a fact! ("Day 5: 9:00pm-10:00pm")

  • Karen Hayes: Your emotional involvement with Miss Raines is not exactly a secret, Jack.
  • Jack Bauer: That has nothing to do with this!
  • Karen Hayes: That's right. You always put the work first, you never let your feelings get involved. Is that what happened with Nina Myers? ("Day 5: 9:00pm-10:00pm")

  • Miles Papazian: We knew this wasn't going to be a seamless transition.
  • Karen Hayes: (sighs) Sometimes I wonder if it was even a necessary one.
  • Miles Papazian: Karen, CTU's performance today has been considerably less than stellar. Dozens of people have been killed, and they weren't even able to prevent an attack on themselves!
  • Karen Hayes: Do you really believe under the circumstances that we could have done any better? ("Day 5: 11:00pm-12:00am")

  • Karen Hayes: Bill, this is Karen Hayes. You have less than seven minutes to get Chloe out of there. ("Day 5: 1:00am-2:00am")

  • Bill Buchanan: Karen, I was thinking of getting some breakfast before going home.
  • Karen Hayes: I have to go to Division for one last briefing, bureaucracy. Raincheck?
  • Bill Buchanan: Sure. ("Day 5: 6:00am-7:00am")

Day 6 Edit

  • Tom Lennox: You don't belong in national security.
  • Karen Hayes: You are using this crisis to advance a very dangerous agenda, Tom, and take advantage of presidential power, and I will not let you do it. And if you think you are going to wear me down you are sadly mistaken. ("Day 6: 11:00am-12:00pm")

  • Bill Buchanan: Have you heard about this latest mandate from Homeland Security?
  • Karen Hayes: No, why, what is it?
  • Bill Buchanan: They're racially profiling our own agents.
  • Karen Hayes: What?
  • Bill Buchanan: It just came down from the White House. The problem is one of my best people is hamstrung. She has to work twice as hard to get through these security measures.
  • Karen Hayes: They're not security measures, Bill. They're the paranoid delusions of Tom Lennox. ("Day 6: 11:00am-12:00pm")

  • Tom Lennox: I'd like you to tender your resignation, Karen.
  • Karen Hayes: My resignation? What are you smoking? ("Day 6: 11:00am-12:00pm")

  • Karen Hayes: Did someone push you down the stairs?
  • Tom Lennox: Actually, I tripped over your ineptitude. ("Day 6: 7:00pm-8:00pm")
