Sgt. Powell is talking to Dwayne T. Robinson.

“Going in?” says Al. “Man, that’s crazy! There could be over thirty hostages in there, for all we know!”

“We don’t know s—, Powell,” says Robinson. “If there’s hostages, how come nobody’s come to us with ransom demands, huh? If there’s terrorists in there, where’s their list of demands? All we know is: somebody shot your car up, and it’s probably the same silly son of a b—-h you’ve been talking to on that radio!”

“EXCUSE ME, SIR!” shouts Al. “but what about the body that fell out the window?”

“Well, who knows?” replies Robinson. “It’s probably some stockbroker – – got depressed.”

We’re ready for you, Chief,” says the SWAT team leader.

“All right,” replies Robinson. “Light ’em up! Let’s go.”

“All right! Hit your lights!” says the SWAT team leader. Powell watches with growing concern.  “We got approval, Chief?” says the SWAT leader.

“Yeah,” says Robinson. A bank of three floodlights is illuminated.

On the 34th Floor, McClane is looking at the pack of cigarettes he took from Heinrich’s body. Suddenly he notices the light from outside. He puts away the cigarettes and picks up the walkie-talkie.

“Al,” he says, “Al – you still with me, babe? What’s goin’ on?” More lights turn on. “Yo, Al!” repeats McClane.

“I’m here, Roy,” says Al, “but I’m kinda busy right now. I’ll talk to you later.” Al looks up at the building.

“Al,” says John, “What’s wrong? What’s going on-”

“I said, I’ll talk to you-” replies Al.
