Live Free or Die Hard

From Quotes
Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.

John McClane

  • Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker [partially cut in theatrical version]
  • [Rand is jumping between walls in the cooling column] Damn hamster!
  • Hold still, spider-boy!
  • I'm going to go get my daughter and kill this guy.
  • That's gonna wake the neighbours.
  • Just another day in paradise.
  • Yeah I just saw it. I did it.
  • All right, thats enough of this kung-fu shit!
  • [mocking his boss] "Can't be a uniform John!" [to bystander] Get over to a wall sir!, [continues mocking] "Feds called in a favor! All you got to do is go pick up a kid (groans) in Jersey and drive him down to D.C." How hard can that be, Huh? Can't be that hard, No, can it? No, gotta be a senior detective!
  • Thing like a traffic jam, throwing a car at me's gonna stop me?
  • I know I'm not as smart as you guys at all this computer shit. But, hey... I'm still alive, ain't I? I mean, you've GOT to be running out of bad guys by now, right? Huh? Gabriel? Honestly, you can tell me. I mean, how does that work? Got some kind of service or something? Some kind of 800 number? 1-800-HENCHMEN? Oh, you know what? I bet you're still on hold with, "Can I get another dead Asian hooker bitch over here right away?"
  • Do you know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. Pat on the back, blah blah blah. 'That a boy.' You get divorced... Your wife can't remember your last name, kids don't want to talk to you... You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me kid, nobody wants to be that guy. [I do this] because there is nobody else to do it right now. Believe me if there was somebody else to do it, I would let them do it. There's not, so [I'm] doing it. That's what makes you that guy."
  • Oh, this is a bad fuckin' idea.
  • [Climbing the SUV] Let's just talk about this for one second [Mai punches him]
  • [choking Mai with chains] There, that's not too tight is it?
  • Command center? [laughs] It's a basement!

Thomas Gabriel

  • [to Farrell] We are leaving in three minutes. You have one.
  • [to Trey] Don't ever hesitate like that again.
  • [to McClane] I'm doing the Country a favour... But the question is, is the Country willing to pay for it?
  • [to McClane] What's the matter - cat got your tongue?
  • [after discovering that the Warlock was hacking into his network] Fat bastard.
  • [Last Words] On your tombstone, it should say "Always at the wrong place at the wrong time."
  • [to McClane] You have no idea who I am, or what am I capable of.

The Warlock

  • Why'd you bring a cop into my command center?
  • Thomas Gabriel's the guy who shut down NORAD with a laptop just to prove a point, and you think I'm scared of you?


  • Mrs Kaludias:Freddy get the fuck up here!


[Lucy McClane has just shot Emerson, Gabriel's henchman, in the foot with his own gun]
Thomas Gabriel: [to Emerson] Jesus Christ! You've got her?
[Emerson nods yes]
Thomas Gabriel: You're sure?

[from the theatrical version]
Matt Farrell: You just killed a helicopter with a car!
John McClane: I was out of bullets.

[from the unrated version]
Matt Farrell: You just killed a helicopter with a car!
John McClane: Hundreds of thousands of people die from car accidents every year. That was just, like, four more.

[Farrell has a bullet wound in his leg after being shot]
John McClane: Hey, chicks dig scars.
[Farrell looks at McClane's daughter, Lucy]
John McClane: Not that one.

Thomas Gabriel: [probing a gunshot wound in McClane's shoulder with his gun] On your tombstone, it should say "Always at the wrong place at the wrong time."
John McClane: How about... [grunts] Yippee-ki-yay... motherfucker?! [grabs the gun and fires it through himself and into Gabriel]

John McClane: Ah, bullshit! It's always about the money!
Thomas Gabriel: What I shouldn't get paid for my work? I'm working my ass off here, John!
John McClane: Just sit tight asshole, I got a check for you!

Matt Farrell: What's the plan?
John McClane: Find Lucy and kill everyone else.

Thomas Gabriel: Mai talk to me. What's going on?
John McClane: Mai? Oh yeah, little Asian chick, likes to kick people? I don't think she's going to be talking to anyone for a very long time. Last time I saw her, she was at the bottom of an elevator shaft with an SUV rammed up her ass.

Mrs Kaludias: Frederick, didn't you hear me?
Warlock: All Baltimore heard you, Ma!

John McClane: [Checking out a Boba Fett stand-up poster] Nice poster.
Warlock: What, like you a big fan of the Fett?
John McClane: No. I was always more of a "Star Wars" guy.

Agent Johnson: Special Agent Johnson, We'll take the sedan.
John McClane: Agent Johnson?
Agent Johnson: That's right. This way please.
John McClane: [under his breath] Great... (This is a reference to the original Die Hard, which featured a running gag about two unrelated special agents named Johnson.)

Thomas Gabriel: McClane? I thought I killed you already.
John McClane: I get that sometimes.
