On the 31st Floor, Hans stands with Karl, Tony, and Takagi in the art gallery. Gruber spots a model of a bridge and walks toward it.

“Oh,” he says, “That’s beautiful. I always enjoyed to make models when I was a boy. The exactness, the attention to every conceivable detail. It’s beautiful.”

“Is this what this is all about, our project in Indonesia?” asks Takagi. “Contrary to what you people may think, we going to develop that region, not exploit it.”

McClane slides out of the stairwell as Gruber leads Takagi into another room.

“I believe you,” says Hans to Takagi,”I read the article in Forbes!” Hans holds out his hand. “Mister Takagi, I could talk about industrialization and men’s fashions all day, but I’m afraid work must intrude, and my associate here has some questions for you. Sort of fill-in-the-blanks questions, actually.”

A computer screen with the Nakatomi logo in green appears.
