Scenes 11-12

Scene 11

  • Gruber's talking to the hostages. He tells them that Mr. Takagi "won't be joining us for the rest of his life." The lesson? Obey me or die.
  • The elevator dings open, and who's in it but poor, dead Tony, who's wearing a Santa hat and a sweatshirt that has recently been doctored to say, "Now I have a machine gun. Ho-ho-ho." Listening to Hans Gruber say "Ho-ho-ho" is one of life's distinct pleasures, so feel free to rewind.
  • Needless to say, Gruber's more than a little peeved. Little does he know, McClane's on top of the elevator, listening to everything Gruber is saying. He learns Gruber's first name, Hans, and that the still-alive blond guy is named Karl. Apparently Tony Sweatpants was his brother.

Scene 12

  • Gruber tells Karl that his brother's dead, and the blondest man in the universe promptly overturns a desk. He's out for blood, but Gruber is more concerned about his own goal: the dough.
  • As Holly watches, she knows McClane's alive and fighting back. She seems pretty proud.
