OF THE RETURN TO OZ MINUTE
Theo is drilling into the Nakatomi vault. Hans calls him on the walkie-talkie.
“Theo! Theo!” says Hans. Theo lifts up his safety mask.
“Yo!” replies Theo.
“We may have some problems,” says Hans. “How’s your schedule?” Theo looks at his computer monitor.
“Three down, four to go,” says Theo.

“This is Sergeant Al Powell of the Los Angeles Police Department,” says Al. “If the person who radioed for help can hear me on this channel, acknowledge this transmission.”
Hans looks at Karl. Theo turns off his drill to hear Al better.
“I say again,” shouts Al, over the siren noise of the approaching police cars, “if the person who radioed for help on this channel can hear me, acknowledge this transmission!” Al frantically waves his arm to quiet the approaching police cruisers.
On the 32nd Floor, McClane enters from the stairwell and keys his microphone. “I read you, Pal,” says McClane. “You the guy in the car?”
Al picks up his mic. “What’s left of him,” he replies. “Can you identify yourself?”
McClane replies, “Not now, maybe later. Listen fast: this is a party line and the neighbors’ got itchy trigger fingers. Alright, here’s the deal: you’ve got thirty or so hostages on the thirtieth floor. The leader’s heres name is Hans –”
“We have to find him and shut him up!” says Franco. “He’s telling them everything!”
“Let him,” says Gruber. “I’m waiting for the FBI to arrive. Until then, he can waste as much time as he likes – – but we must-”
