John McClane is squeezed into a very long HVAC vent, looking around with his Zippo lighter.

“Come out to the coast,” he says sarcastically, “We’ll get together, have a few laughs!” He snaps his lighter shut.

The noise travels up to Karl, looking down the ventilation shaft from the top of the catwalk.


McClane pulls himself along by his elbows. “Now I know what a TV dinner feels like,” he grunts.

Karl, Fritz, and Franco rush into the conference room on the 32nd floor, guns drawn. Karl tells Fritz to check the ceiling of the electrical room, while Karl runs to the other side of the 32nd floor.

McClane spies Karl through the louvers of the vent he’s in. Karl aims his gun at the vent. Karl hears a noise, and sprays the vent with bullets, barely missing McClane in the process.

McClane holds perfectly still.

Karl moves closer to the vent, pointing his gun where McClane is hiding.
