Hans Gruber is on his knees, facing John McClane and his machine gun.

“Hi there!” says McClane. “How are you doing?”

“Ohh!” says Gruber, “Please, God! No, you’re one of them, aren’t you?  You’re one of them! Don’t – don’t kill me, please! No, please! Don’t kill me! Don’t kill me, please! Please, please please!”

“Whoa, relax,” says McClane. “Relax, I’m not gonna hurt you. I’m not gonna hurt you!”

“Oh, God,” says Gruber, wincing and closing his eyes.

“The f— are you doing up here?” says McClane. “Who were you looking for?”

“I managed to get out of there, and –” begins Gruber, “and, well, I was trying to just get up on the roof and see if I could signal for help. You know.”  Gruber points between the HVAC equipment, “It’s just through here! Why don’t you come and help…”  Gruber heads back toward his gun and flashlight.

“Whoa whoa whoa,” says McClane.

“No, if we go-” explains Gruber.

“Forget the roof,” says McClane.

“No, come on, we can,” says Gruber.

“I said forget the roof,” repeats McClane,” They’ve got people all over. Come on – you want to stay alive? You stay with me.”

Gruber looks back at McClane.
