Die Hard,

Minute 080: Sprechen Sie Talk?

January 19, 2018

Sean German & Dave Pallas

John tells Al over the radio that he’s feeling unappreciated.

“Hey, look,” says Al, “I love ya. So do a lot of the other guys.”

McClane laughs.

“So, you hang in there, man – – you hear me?” asks Al. “You hang in there.”

“Yeah, thanks Pardner,” replies John.

Back in the party room on 30, Holly watches Ellis snort more cocaine.

“What are you doing?” she says to Harry, alarmed.

“I’m tired of sitting here,” says Harry, buttoning the top button of his shirt, “waiting to see who gets us killed first – – them, or your husband.”

“What are you going to do,” says Holly, not really asking a question.

“Hey Babe,” replies Ellis, “I negotiate million dollar deals for breakfast. I think I can handle this Euro trash.”

Harry turns toward one of the henchmen. “Hey, sprechen sie talk, huh?”

Meanwhile, Hans is having a heated discussion with Karl in Holly’s office.

“If you listened to me, he’d be neutralized already,” says Hans.

“I don’t want neutral,” replies Karl, “I want dead.”

There’s a knock at the door. Franco brings in Harry Ellis.

“Hope I’m not interrupting,” says Harry, smiling.

“What does he want?” says Hans to Franco.

Ellis snorts. “It’s not what I want,” he says, “it’s what I can give you.”

Unseen, Karl looks down at his gun, but Hans shakes his head ‘no.”

“Look,” says Ellis, “let’s be straight, okay?”
