Dwayne T. Robinson: Did you hear that? He just let the guy die, man. He just gave him up. Gimme that headset. That's like pullin' the trigger yourself. Sergeant Al Powell: Christ, man. Can't you see what's happening? Can't you read between the lines? Dwayne T. Robinson: Cold. This on the right channel? Cop: Yes, sir. Sergeant Al Powell: He did everything he could to save him. If he gave himself up, they'd both be dead right now. Dwayne T. Robinson: Oh, no way, man, no way. They'd be talking to us. Listen, you tell this partner of yours, Powell, to stay the hell out of this from now on, do you hear me? Because, if he doesn't, I'm gonna nail him, boy. I'm really gonna nail his ass, now, believe me. Sergeant Al Powell: The man is hurting! He is alone, tired, and he hasn't seen diddly-squat from anybody down here. Now you're gonna stand there and tell me that he's gonna give a damn about what you do to him, if he makes it out of there alive? Why don't you wake up and smell what you shoveling? Dwayne T. Robinson: You listen to me, Sergeant. Any time you wanna go home, you consider yourself dismissed. Sergeant Al Powell: No, sir. You couldn't drag me away.
Robinson blasts McClane over the radio and holding him responsible for Harry's foolishness. That cause Powell to confront Robinson.
