Hand on his club, Al approaches the entrance to Nakatomi Tower.

Eddie hurries to the locked entrance with a card key.

“Evenin’ Officer,” says Eddie, “what can I do for you?” He smiles at Al.

On the 33rd Floor, Karl, Fritz, and Franco race through the unfinished offices. They meet up with Marco, who tells them that there’s only one police officer. They all laugh.

In the lobby, Al is talking to Eddie.

“We had that false alarm, you know,” says Eddie. “If you ask me, that goddamn computer sent you on another wild goose chase.” Eddie walks back to the guard station. “They’ve been chasing bugs in this system ever since they installed it.” The television is showing a game between Notre Dame and USC on Christmas Eve.

“Aw s—!” yells Eddie, looking at the TV. “Come on – I got fifty bucks bet on those a——s.”

Al glances around the lobby.

McClane leans against the window, looking down at the empty police car, “Come on,” he says, “where’s the f—ing cavalry?”

John picks up a chair and smashes a window. It’s overheard by one of the gang on the roof, who reports the noise on his radio.
