Hans Gruber: Who are you then?
John McClane: Just a fly in the ointment, Hans. The monkey in the wrench. The pain in the ass.

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.

Tony

Take *this* under advisement, jerkweed.

John McClane

I wanted this to be professional. Efficient, adroit, cooperative, not a lot to ask. Alas, your Mr. Takagi did not see it that way, so he won't be joining us for the rest of his life.

Hans Gruber

[evil smile] Shoot the glass.

Hans Gruber

Sergeant Al Powell: In fact, I think he's a cop. Maybe not LAPD, but he's definitely a badge.
Dwayne T. Robinson: How do you know that?
Sergeant Al Powell: A hunch, things he said. Like being able to spot a phony ID.
Dwayne T. Robinson: Jesus Christ, Powell, he could be a fucking bartender for all we know.

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

Hans Gruber

Nine million terrorists in the world and I gotta kill one with feet smaller than my sister.

John McClane

Dwayne T. Robinson: We don't know shit, Powell. If there's hostages in there, how come no one's come to us with ransom demands? If there's terrorists in there, where's their list of demands? All we know is that whoever shot your car up is probably the same silly sonofabitch you've been talking to on that radio.
Sergeant Al Powell: Excuse me sir. But what about the body that fell out the window?
Dwayne T. Robinson: Well who knows? Perhaps some stockbroker, got depressed.
