THIS WEEK’S HOSTS:
NEIL BROWN AND GEORGE HENDRICKS
OF THE MOGWAI MINUTE
Marco is shooting randomly through the table, and taunting McClane.
Al is talking to the police dispatcher on the radio after leaving Nakatomi Plaza. He climbs into his patrol car, singing “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…”
Suddenly the bloody corpse of Marco crashes through his windshield.
“Goddamnit Jesus H. Christ!” yells Al, throwing his cruiser into reverse. The tires skid on the wet paver bricks. Machine gun blasts spew from an upper floor. Al reverses wildly through the circular drive.
“Welcome to the party, pal!” yells McClane through the broken window. More gunfire rips through the top of the cruiser, knocking off the rolling lights. Al backs over sever sapling trees.
In the limousine parked in the garage, Argyle has the music cranked up while he chats on the car phone, oblivious to the mayhem in the front of the building. Al’s cruiser pops over a hill and crashes through some planters, onto a lawn edged by rose bushes.
“There’s automatic rifle fire at Nakatomi!” yells Al into his microphone. “I need backup assistance now! Now, goddamnit, now!” He backs into a steel fence that breaks, dropping the car about ten feet over a retaining wall.
Al, his head covered with blood, pulls himself out of the wreckage of his police cruiser.
Meanwhile, television reporter Richard Thornburg is trying to arrange a dinner date on the phone at his TV studio. “Monica,” he says, “I can get us a table! Wolfgang and I are very close.”
