Die Hard script
Die Hard (1988)
Synopsis: New York City policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) and two daughters on Christmas Eve. He joins her at a holiday party in the headquarters of the Japanese-owned business she works for. But the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists who take over the exclusive high-rise, and everyone in it. Very soon McClane realizes that there's no one to save the hostages -- but him.

ELLIS:

I was thinking more of roaring

fireplaces...mulled wine and a nice

brie...

Holly ignores the come-on, turns to her secretary.

HOLLY:

Ginny, it's 6:40, you're making me

feel like Ebeneezer Scrooge. Go on,

join the party, have some champagne.

Ginny slowly manipulates herself out of her seat. She is

enormously pregnant.

GINNY:

(grateful)

Thanks Ms. Gennaro.

(worried)

Do you think the baby can handle

a little sip?

HOLLY:

(eyeing her)

Ginny, that baby's ready to tend bar.

ELLIS:

(not giving up)

How about tomorrow night?

Holly just points to the door. He follows Ginny out, clearly

not giving up. Just then the party on Holly's phone picks up

and we:

of importance. An Xmas tree is in the b.g.
