Die Hard: With A Vengeance

Synopsis: John McClane is now almost a full-blown alcoholic and is suspended from the NYPD. But when a bomb goes off in the Bonwit Teller Department Store the police go insane trying to figure out what's going on. Soon, a man named Simon calls and asks for McClane. Simon tells Inspector Walter Cobb that McClane is going to play a game called "Simon Says". He says that McClane is going to do the tasks he assigns him. If not, he'll set off another bomb. With the help of a Harlem electrician, John McClane must race all over New York trying to figure out the frustrating puzzles that the crafty terrorist gives him. But when a bomb goes off in a subway station right by the Federal Reserve (the biggest gold storage in the world) things start to get heated.

all this about, huh?

If we don't do

what this guy says,

he'll blow up

another place.

Well, why me?

I have no idea.

He just said it had to be you.

It's nice

to be needed.


Hey, Walter, how about you mind

your fucking business

about Holly, huh?

This Simon is fucking up

a perfectly good hangover.


We'll be back

to pick you up

in 15 minutes.

Take your time.

I expect to be dead

in four.

Let's go, Billy!

Hey, yo, Uncle!

Come look at this!

It's 10 after 9:

Why aren't you in school?

Tony wants to

sell you this.

Tony. That no-neck dude

they call Bad T?

He says he found it

in a dumpster.

He keeps stealing,

he'll be found in a dumpster.

He didn't steal it.

Says his uncle gave it to him.

Mm-hmm. Hand me

that newspaper over there.

Don't ever let

people use you.

You're running all over town

with stolen property.

If you get caught,

you're in trouble while he denies

the whole thing.

You mean you want us

to take it back to Tony?

No. I'll take it

back to Tony...

with a message.

Now, where you going?

- Why?

- School.

- Why?

- To get educated.

So we can go

to college.

And why is that


To get 'espect.


Who's the bad guys?

Guys who sell drugs.

Guys who have guns.

Who are the good guys?

We're the good guys.

Who's going to help you?


Who's going to help you?

We'll help ourselves.

Who do we not want

to help us?

- White people.

- White people.

That's right. Get on out of here.

Go to school.

Uncle, you better

come look at this.


A white man

in the street.

I've seen one.

Not like this.

Dial 911.

Tell the police

to get up here quick.

Somebody's about

to get killed.

And get your butts to school.

You hear me?


All right.

Back off, man.


Good morning.
