John McClane calling for help on the roof of Nakatomi Plaza, via his CB walkie-talkie.
“Century City,” says John. Meanwhile in Holly’s office, Hans tries to figure out where McClane is radioing from.
“Where’s the best place to transmit?” Hans says to himself.
“Somebody answer me, Goddamnit!” says McClane.
“The roof!” says Hans. “Go – go!” Karl, Franco, and Fritz head out the office door.
Meanwhile, at the LAPD radio room, a 9-1-1 operator and her supervisor look at a monitor. The monitor says:
2121 AVENUE OF THE STARS
LOS ANGELES, CA 90213
BLDG. MANAGER (213) 203-3733
FIRE ALARM CODE 2134480
“It’s the same address as that fire signal,” says the dispatcher.
“I’ll handle it,” says the supervisor. She keys her microphone. “Attention, whoever you are: this channel is reserved for emergency calls only.”
“No f—ing s— lady! Do I sound like I’m ordering a pizza?” replies McClane.
Meanwhile, Karl, Fritz, and Franco ride the cargo elevator to the helipad. Fritz takes a drag on his cigarette while Karl assembles his rifle. Franco takes off his jacket.
“No one kills him but me,” orders Karl, as they leave the elevator.
On the rooftop, McClane is still on the walkie talkie. “They have already killed one hostage, they are fortifying their positions while you’re jerking me off on the radio! Now, send a police –”
“Sir, I’ve already told you,” replies the LAPD supervisor, ” this is a reserved channel. If this is an emergency call, dial 9-1-1 on your telephone. Otherwise, I’ll have to report this as an FCC violation.”
“Fine,” says McClane. “Report me. Come the f— down here and arrest me. Just send the police now–”
McClane is cut off by a rapid burst of gunfire.
