of the Return to Oz Minute
The SWAT team assembles next to the arc lights facing Nakatomi Tower.
Theo, humming “Singin’ in the Rain,” is typing on a computer.
Argyle, having checked all blocked exits, parks his car on a lower parking level, next to the loading dock. He looks at the reflection of the stuffed bear in the back seat. “Shut up,” he says to the bear.
“Let’s go,” says the SWAT leader. The SWAT team approaches the building.
McClane watches the advance from a window on the 34th floor. “Macho a——-s!” he says. “No! No!”
The SWAT team gets closer to the building.
Theo clears his throat, and says into his microphone, “Alright – – listen up, guys: ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house…” Ulie, next to the newsstand, chews on a Crunch bar.
“… not a creature was stirring, except –” continues Theo. Eddie rubs his earpiece and looks around. Hans listens in from his vantage point in Holly’s office.
” the four a——-s coming in the rear in standard two-by-two cover formation,” says Theo.
Four SWAT members arrive at the entrance to the Nakatomi lobby.
“Okay, we’re all set,” says the SWAT leader.
Meanwhile, Captain Mitchell, Dwayne T. Robinson, and Sgt. Al Powell watch on from their staging area.
