Die Hard 2 script
Die Hard 2 (1990)
Synopsis: A year after his heroics in L.A, detective John McClane (Bruce Willis) is mixed up in another terrorist plot, this time at Washington Dulles International Airport, where he is waiting for his wife (Bonnie Bedelia). That same night, South American politico and drug profiteer Ramon Esperanza (Franco Nero) is arriving in U.S. custody. McClane takes action when a treasonous ex-colonel (William Sadler) seizes control of the airport, threatening to crash every inbound flight unless Esperanza is freed.

WHILE WE'RE IN BLACK we HEAR a PNEUMATIC "KA-CHUNK" and then

MCCLANE'S VOICE

Holy shit, whoa, whoa -

FADE IN:

1 EXT. DULLES TERMINAL - DAY 1

JOHN MCCLANE, long topcoat FLAPPING, comes running out of the

terminal towards an AIRPORT COP in plastic covered uniform who is

supervising a TOW TRUCK DRIVER who in turn is manhandling a

sedate sedan with Virginia plates and a "GRANDMOTHER ON BOARD"

sign on the rear window.

MCCLANE:

I'm here, I'm here, false alarm, let's

just let her down nice and easy -

COP:

Sure. At the impound lot.

(POINTING)

Next time, read the sign.

MCCLANE:

You don't understand, I'm just meeting

my wife's-plane - you gotta give me

this car back.

COP:

Sure. Tomorrow 8 to four, you pay

40 bucks, we give it back.

MCCLANE:

This is my mother in law's car. She

already hates me because I'm not a

DENTIST -

(SHOWING-BADGE)

See, I'm a cop. LAPD. How about

some team spirit?

COP:

I was in LA once. Hated it.

MCCLANE:

(going with the flow)

I can relate to that. Hate it myself-

(turning to tow guy)

Hey, that's a plastic fender, Jesus-

(back to cop)

See, I used to be a New York cop still

got my ID somewhere -I only moved

'cause my wife got promoted - look,

maybe we can settle this right here,

we're in Washington, heartbeat of

Democracy, one hand washes the other

He realizes the truck is DRIVING AWAY one way while the cop is

i going off the other way - McClane votes for the cop -

MCCLANE:

Hey, c'mon, it's Christmas -

COP:

So Ask Santa to bring you another

car.

MCCLANE:

(SOTTO)

You son of a -

BEEP drowns out his last word. McClave sweeps aside his coat,

finds the beeper on his belt. He looks at the obviously

unfamilar number on the read out in puzzlement, then runs into

the terminal.

2 INT. DULLES TERMINAL - DAY 2

CHRISTMAS MUSIC wafting through the building from a SCHOOL CHOIR

perched in front of a massive, three-story window. Blase

travelers PAUSE in their hectic rush to applaud the angelic

voices.

McClane shoves his way through some people - when they GLARE at

him he quickly APPLAUDS the kids, pulls up at an INFORMATION

BOOTH - the girl there is watching a LITTLE TV on the shelf out

of sight from the public.

MCCLANE 1ST NEWSCASTER

Telephones? (on TV)

.and that White Christmas

INFORMATION GIRL may be here for a while, if

(pointing) that new storm front moves

Right over there. to the Metro area this

afternoon as predicted.

McClane nods, serves across the slick linoleum.
