We are prepared to go any way you make us. When we have achieved our aims you can either walk out of here... or be carried out. Decide now, each of you.

Hans Gruber

But remember that we have planned everything to the last detail. We are completely in change.

Hans Gruber

The fire has been called off my friend. So you might as well come out and join the others. I promise I won't hurt you.


[evil smile] Shoot the glass.

Hans Gruber

FBI Special Agent Johnson: Figure we take out the terrorists. Lose twenty, twenty-five percent of the hostages.
FBI Agent Johnson: I can live with that.

Holly Gennero McClane: After all your posturing, all your speeches, you're nothing but a common thief.
Hans Gruber: I am an exceptional thief, Mrs. McClane. And since I'm moving up to kidnapping, you should be more polite.

Now I know what a TV dinner feels like.

John McClane

Convenience Store Clerk: I thought you guys just ate doughnuts.
Sergeant Al Powell: Heh. They're for my wife.

Holly Gennero McClane: I have a request.
Hans Gruber: What idiot put you in charge?
Holly Gennero McClane: You did. When you murdered my boss. Now everyone's looking to me. Personally, I'd pass on the job. I don't enjoy being this close to you.

Hans Gruber: You *can* unlock the vault, can't you?
Theo: You didn't bring me along for my charming personality.

Welcome to the party pal.

John McClane

Nice suit. John Phillips, London. I have two myself. Rumor has it Arafat buys his there.
