Hans is eating an appetizer from the Christmas buffet, as he explains to the Nakatomi employees that Mister Takagi “won’t be joining us — for the rest of his life.”

He continues, “See, we can go any way you want it. You can walk out of here, or be carried out.¬† But have no illusions: we are in charge. So, decide now – – each of you. And please remember: we have left nothing to chance.”

Just then, the elevator door opens, and a shocked Fritz sees the body of Tony, strapped to an office chair with a Santa hat, and the words “NOW I HAVE A MACHINE GUN HO HO HO” on written on Tony’s shirt.

One of the Nakatomi employees screams at the sight. Hans runs to the elevator, shouting at Fritz, “Get them back!”

Ellis and Holly look on from a distance.

Hans reads the message on Tony’s shirt. He looks puzzled.

“A security guard we missed?” asks Fritz.

“They’re usually tired old policemen, growing fat on a pension. This is something else. ”
