Riffing on the ever-popular site "Overheard in New York," (and our own "Overheard in CTU") here are a few snippets of things overheard within the confines of the J. Edgar Hoover Building in D.C.:
Agent #1: What are you working on?
Agent #2: Oh this? (looks at computer screen) I'm ebaying some of old stuff.
Agent #1: Now?! Dude, we're about to lose our network to the terrorists!
Agent #2: And I gotta move these Hummel dolls before that happens!
IT Tech: So, CIP stands for Critical Infrastructure Protection. We have it in place to save us from a failure of our nation-wide systems.
Cute Secretary: And this is what is not going to save us from the terrorists right now?
IT Tech: Um, well it's a complex system.
Cute Secretary: You helped build this?
IT Tech: Yeah, pretty much.
Cute Secretary: Can I have my phone number back?
Office Manager: Should I bring out Larry Moss' birthday cake?
FBI Mole: Eh, not yet, I have to finish the icing (hides grenade in pocket)
Office Manager: No prob! By the way thank you so much for helping out, Agent [NAME DELETED].
FBI Mole: It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.
Office Manager: Aw, is that from a song?
FBI Mole: I think Nixon said it after he resigned.
Office Manager: Oh...
Guy in caf: Wait, Jack Bauer was here?!
Girl in caf: Just this morning. You know the guy?
Guy in caf: Oh crap-- uh, yeah I worked with Bauer at CTU.
Girl in caf: Were you there when the nuke went off?
Guy in caf: Which one?
