Al Powell is talking to John McClane on the radio.

“Our spotters say you got two with that blast,” says Al.

“Is that him?” says Robinson. Robinson walks up to Sgt. Al. “Is that him?”

“Yes, sir,” replies Al.

“Give me that,” says Robinson, grabbing the mic. “Now, you listen to me, mister – I don’t know who in the hell you think you are, or what you’re doing, but you just destroyed a building! Now, we do not want your help! Is that clear? We don’t want your help I’ve got a hundred people down here, and they’re covered with glass.”

“Glass?” says McClane, “Who gives a s— about glass? Who the f— is this?”

“This is Deputy Chief of Police Dwayne T. Robinson,” says Robinson, “and I am in charge of this situation.”

“Oh, you’re in charge,” says McClane. “Well, I’ve got some bad news for you, Dwayne: from up here, it doesn’t look like you’re in charge of jack s—!”

“You listen to me, you little a–hole,” replies Robinson, “I’m gonna–”

“A–hole?” says McClane, “I’m not the one who just got buttf—-d on national TV, Dwayne.”

Argyle, listening in on the limo’s CB, laughs.

“Now, you listen to me, jerkoff,” continues McClane, “you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem! Quit being part of the f—ing problem and put the other guy back on!”

Robinson shoves the mic back at Al and walks away.

“Hey, Roy,” says Al, “How are you feeling?”

“Pretty f—ing unappreciated,” begins McClane
