On the 31st Floor, Takagi is talking to Hans.

Waving his pistol, McClane sneaks into the gallery, filled with exhibits of Nakatomi projects. He hunkers down behind the Indonesian bridge model. From his vantage point behind the model, John can see the closed door of the conference room, and hear the muted voice of Hans.

Inside the conference room, Gruber removes the silencer from his pistol.

“Now,” says Hans, “the code, please.”

Takagi, sweating, says, “It’s useless to you. There are seven safeguards on our vault, and the code key is only one of them. You’ll never get it open!”

“Then there’s no reason not to tell it to us,” replies Hans.

“I told you!” says Theo.

Karl looks on. “It’s not over yet,” he says to Theo.

Hans looks at the two briefly, and then back at Takagi. “It’s a very nice suit,” says Gruber, “Mister Takagi.”
