    Wem der große Wurf gelungen

    Eines Freundes Freund zu sein;

    Wer ein holdes Weib errungen

    Mische seinen Jubel ein!

    Ja, wer auch nur eine Seele

    Sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund!

    Und wer’s nie gekonnt, der stehle

    Weinend sich aus diesem Bund!

    Next, the lyrics of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy ring out.

    Freude, Freude,

     Freude, schoener Goetterfunken,

    Tochter aus Elysium,

    Wir betreten feuertrunken,

    Himmlische, dein Heiligtum.

    Deine Zauber binden wieder

    Was der Mode Schwert geteilt

    Bettler werden Fuerstenbrueder

    Wo dein sanfter Fluegel weilt.

    Seid umschlungen, Millionen!

    Diesen Kuss der ganzen Welt!

    Brueder – ueber’m Sternenzelt

    Muss ein lieber Vater wohnen.

    John and Holly face each other in the back of the limo.  They  kiss.

    Argyle closes the limo door and drives away, under an LAFD ladder truck. The rubble of the attack on Nakatomi plaza is smoking all around the roadway as they drive off.

    Vaughn Monroe sings “Let It Snow!” as the credits appear.

    Oh, the weather outside is frightful

    But the fire is so delightful

    And since we’ve no place to go

    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

    Man it doesn’t show signs of stoppin’

    And I brought some corn for poppin’

    The lights are turned way down low

    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

    When we finally kiss good-night

    How I’ll hate going out in the storm

    But if you really hold me tight

    All the way home I’ll be warm

    And the fire is slowly dying

    And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing

    But as long as you love me so

    Let it snow, let it snow, and snow…

    Behind the gun is Sgt. Al Powell, surprised that he’s overcome his fear of armed conflict. John looks at Karl’s body, then at Al.

    Holly and John get up off the ground.

    “All right, the two of you, go up and see if there’s anyone else,” says a police officer to other law enforcement staff.

    Just then, Argyle busts through a garage  gate with his limo.  Al turns, ready with his pistol to stop further violence.

    McClane puts his hand on Al’s arm. “This one’s with me,” says John, moving Al’s gun toward the ground.  John wraps his arm around Holly and walk toward Argyle’s limo.

    Argyle waves at them from the limo.

    “Mister McClane! Mister McClane!” interrupts Richard Thornburg, who thrusts a microphone in John’s face. “Now that it’s all over, after this incredible ordeal, what are your feelings?” The scene switches to a video view of the confrontation.

    Holly punches Thornburg in the jaw. Thornburg staggers for a moment and grabs his nose.

    “Well, well, well,” says McClane to Argyle. “Merry Christmas, Argyle.” Argyle holds the limo door open for the McClane couple. They climb inside.

    “Merry Christmas,” says Argyle.

    On-camera, Thornburg asks his producer, “Did you get that?”

    Argyle closes the door and shakes his head. “If this is their idea of Christmas,” he says, “I’ve got to be there for New Years!”

    John and Holly face each other in the back of the limo.  They’re about to kiss.

    John McClane is introducing his wife to Sgt. Al Powell outside Nakatomi Tower.

    “Holly,” he laughs, “Holly Gennaro.”

    “Holly McClane,” Holly corrects, shaking hands with Al.

    “Hello, Holly,” says Al, “You’ve got yourself a good man. You take good care of him.” Holly looks at John.

    “McClane!” shouts Dwayne T. Robinson, from across the crowd of police and hostages. “McClane, I want a debrief! I want a debriefing – – you’ve got some things to answer for, Mister! Ellis’s murder, for one thing. Property damage, interfering with police business…”

    Suddenly, there’s a loud scream. Karl, still alive, shoves a police officer out of the way and pulls out his Steyr AUG, aiming at Holly and John. McClane throws his wife to the ground as Karl levels his weapon at them.

    A shot rings out from a Smith & Wesson Model 15, then four more shots follow. Karl is shredded by the impact of the bullets.

    McClane is shocked by the turn of events.

    Another shot from the Smith & Wesson, and Karl falls to the ground.

    Behind the gun is Sgt. Al Powell, surprised that he’s overcome his fear of armed conflict. John looks at Karl’s body, then at Al.

    Now in firemen’s coats, John and Holly descend from the wrecked stairway of the lobby, aided by first responders. Papers continue to fall from the sky.

    John looks out at the crowd of emergency personnel.  He sees an LAPD sergeant smiling at him. It’s Al Powell.

    McClane mouths the word, “Pal,” and Al smiles wider and nods.  John and Holly make their way toward him. They pause in front of each other, then Al breaks into laughter and hugs John. McClane laughs and cries at the same time.

    “Al, this is my wife,” says John.
