QUOTES FROM Tom Bower CHARACTERS

Marvin says: [about the radio he lifted from one of Stuart's henchmen] I found it on the floor next to the luggage belt. What the hell are you so excited about?

John McClane says: The code's still punched into this one.

Marvin says: You like it, huh? How 'bout you give me twenty bucks for it.

John McClane says: How 'bout I let you live?

Marvin says: Man knows how to barter.
