    The following example will display a script conditionally for a different footer. This is just one example of how you may use the hook and will use a secondary template file of footer-new.php

    function themeslug_footer_hook( $name ) {
    	if ( 'new' == $name ) { ?>
    			(function($) {
    				//put all your jQuery goodness in here.
    add_action( 'get_footer', 'themeslug_footer_hook' );
