Holly McClane Quotes:
Richard Thornburg: No you did not explain anything to me. All you did was shove me back here in this cattle car.
Stewardess: Sir, you were told when you boarded we were overbooked.
Richard Thornburg: Fine. Done. I accept that. But why in hell can't I get the first class meal my network paid for. Do you know who I am?
Stewardess: Yes. We've all seen your program. Your episode "Flying Junkyards" was a very objective look at air traffic safety.
Stewardess: It wasn't nearly as edifying as "Bimbos of the Sky." Was it, Connie?

Stewardess: Mr. Thornburg, you cannot monopolize my time.
Richard Thornburg: You cannot put me near that woman.
Stewardess: Excuse me?
Holly McClane: He means he's filed a restraining order against me. I'm not allowed within 50 feet of him.
Richard Thornburg: 50 yards. So by keeping me in the section you are violating a court order. I can sue you and this airline. That woman assaulted me and she humiliated me in public.

Holly McClane: Stronger mouthwash would be nice.
Holly McClane: They told me there were terrorists at the airport.
John McClane: Yeah, I heard that too.
Richard Thornburg: [Thornburg has been grossly distorting and exaggerating the facts about the terrorists to WZDC News over the air-phone] But at least the truth, is *not* among the hostages because I, Richard Thornburg, just happen to be here. To put his life and talent on the line for humanity and country,
[Holly enters the bathroom]
Richard Thornburg: and if this should be my final broadcast...
Holly McClane: [zaps him with stun-gun] Amen to that, Dick!
Holly McClane: Honey, it's the '90s, remember? Microchips, microwaves, faxes, *air phones*.
John McClane: Hey, well, as far as I'm concerned, progress peaked with frozen pizza.
Holly McClane: [after the terrorist attack] Why does this keep happening to us?
Holly McClane: Listen, buster, you endangered my children. And you didn't do it for anything as noble as The People. The only time you even see The People is when you look down to see what it is you're stepping on.
[One of the flight attendants reaches Holly's row]
Connie, Stewardess #1: Can I get you another?
Holly McClane: [looks at Thornburg across the aisle] No thank you. I only have to look at his face for another fifteen to twenty minutes.
[the intercom comes on]
Pilot (Northeast Airlines plane): Ladies and gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. I've just been informed by Dulles Traffic Control that there's a weather front moving in ahead of us.
