McClane hides behind a stack of drywall, his weapon drawn.

Tony looks at a stack of drywall in the middle of the room. “The fire–” he begins, “has been called off, my friend.” He pauses, and studies the stack of drywall sheets. “No one is coming to help you,” he adds, “You might as well come out and join the others.”

He slaps the bolt of his rifle into position. “I promise I won’t hurt you,” says Tony, before firing a burst as he crosses behind the drywall. McClane is nowhere to be found, though.

In the distance, Tony hears a radial arm saw start up. He heads toward the noise. As he arrives at the saw, which is now unpowered and slowing to a stop, Tony suddenly feels a pistol at his neck.

“Drop it, dickhead,” says McClane. “It’s the police.”

“You won’t hurt me,” replies Tony.

“Oh yeah?” asks McClane. “Why not?”

“Because you’re a policeman,” replies Tony.
