Thomas Gabriel: You know, John, I feel like we've gotten off on the wrong foot. And because of that, you think I'm the bad guy. Nothing could be further from the truth. I'm the good guy here. I told them this could happen if they didn't listen. Did I get a "Thank you"? No, I got a "Fuck you." But they wouldn't listen.
John McClane: You got their attention now, don't you?
Thomas Gabriel: That's right. I am doing the country a favor.
John McClane: By tearing it apart?
Thomas Gabriel: Better me than some outsider. Some religious nut job bent on Armageddon. Nobody wants to see that happen. Everything I've broken can be fixed if the country is willing to pay for it.
John McClane: Oh, fuck you. It's always been about the money.
Thomas Gabriel: What, I shouldn't get paid for my work? I'm working my ass off here, John.
John McClane: I'm on my way to bring you a big fuckin' check.
