Live Free or Die Hard (2007) Poster

Justin Long: Matthew 'Matt' Farrell



  • Matt Farrell : You just killed a helicopter with a car!

    John McClane : I was out of bullets.

  • Matt Farrell : [to Lucy]  Wow, I know that tone. It's just weird hearing it come from someone... with hair.

  • John McClane : You know, chicks dig scars.

    Matt Farrell : [looks at Lucy]  Really?

    John McClane : Not that one.

  • Matt Farrell : The news is completely manipulated. Everything you hear, every single day is designed by corporate media to do one thing only. To keep you living in fear.

  • John McClane : You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.

    Matt Farrell : Then why you doing this?

    John McClane : Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.

    Matt Farrell : Ah. That's what makes you that guy.

  • [after McClane flings Rand from his car] 

    Matt Farrell : Did you see that?

    John McClane : Yeah I saw it, I did it!

  • Matt Farrell : Awww, great! There goes the cell phone.

    John McClane : They knocked the satellites out of the skies, now?

    Matt Farrell : No, your battery ran out.

  • Matt Farrell : Jesus Christ. It's a fire sale.

    John McClane : What?

    Matt Farrell : It's a fire sale.

    Deputy Director Miguel Bowman : Hey! We don't know that yet.

    Taylor : Yeah, it's a myth anyway. It can't be done.

    Matt Farrell : Oh, it's a myth? Really? Please tell me she's only here for show and she's actually not in charge of anything.

    John McClane : Hey, what's a fire sale?

    Matt Farrell : It's a three-step... it's a three-step systematic attack on the entire national infrastructure. Okay, step one: take out all the transportation. Step two: the financial base and telecoms. Step three: You get rid of all the utilities. Gas, water, electric, nuclear. Pretty much anything that's run by computers which... which today is almost everything. So that's why they call it a fire sale, because everything must go.

  • Matt Farrell : What are we doing?

    John McClane : It's a little thing they invented back in the sixties called 'jogging'. You're gonna love it. Come on.

  • Matt Farrell : Have you done stuff like that before?

    John McClane : Stuff like what?

    Matt Farrell : Like killing people?

    John McClane : Yeah. But not for a long time.

    Matt Farrell : [upset]  So, who were those guys? Huh? Why were they trying to kill you? Why'd they blow up my goddamn apartment?

    John McClane : They were there to kill you.

    Matt Farrell : Why would they wanna kill me?

    John McClane : You tell me, kid. You're the criminal.

  • [from the unrated version] 

    Matt Farrell : You just killed a helicopter with a car!

    John McClane : Hundreds of thousands of people get killed by cars every year. That's just like four more.

  • John McClane : Hey, thanks for saving my daughter's life.

    Matt Farrell : [shrugs]  What was I going to do?

    John McClane : That's what makes you "that guy."

    Matt Farrell : [smiles]  Yeah.

  • Matt Farrell : [to McClane]  If that guy knew half the shit that I know, his fuzzy little head would explode.

  • Slacker Kid : Hey, Farrell. Sully just P.D.L.'d a new copy of the, uh, Kill Zone 9, the one that ain't out yet. You wanna come check it out?

    Matt Farrell : No, thanks though, man. And good luck at the bad timing awards.

  • Matt Farrell : When was the last time you remember turning on the radio and listening to popular music? Or, just give me a decade. The 70's? I'm guessing - was, was Michael Jackson still black? Pearl Jam - I'll go back ten years with you. Ten years - 20 years, The Cure? Nothing?

  • Matt Farrell : Seriously, uh, you probably shouldn't antagonize them, since they have all the loaded guns, and whatnot.

    Lucy McClane : Listen, will you just take a minute and dig deep for a bigger set of balls, 'cause you're gonna need 'em before we're through

  • [Matt is cringing while listening to Creedence Clearwater Revival on the radio] 

    John McClane : You don't like Creedence?

    Matt Farrell : This is like having a pine cone shoved in my ass.

    [John turns the volume up louder] 

  • Matt Farrell : I'm not a doctor but-but you look like you're hurt.

    John McClane : Sexy, right?

    Matt Farrell : No.

  • John McClane : Are you Matt Farrell? Matthew Farrell?

    Matt Farrell : No, he, uh, actually does not live here anymore.

    John McClane : Of course not. Who are you?

    Matt Farrell : My name is Daisy Duke. Got a lot of shit for it when I was a kid. Please don't add to it.

  • Matt Farrell : Do we have anything, like, resembling a plan, or anything?

    John McClane : Find Lucy, kill everybody else.

    Matt Farrell : I mean, more like a plan, like, a way to do that.

  • Thomas Gabriel : We are leaving in three minutes.

    [pushes computer towards Matt] 

    Thomas Gabriel : You have one.

    Matt Farrell : The rules haven't changed, man. You're gonna kill me the minute I unlock it.

    [Thomas shoots Matt in the leg] 

    Thomas Gabriel : [Thomas grabs Lucy and puts the gun to her head]  Matthew. Matthew! I really need you to pay attention. The rules can always change.

    Matt Farrell : Okay, wait a minute.

    Thomas Gabriel : I'm gonna shoot her in ten seconds.

    Matt Farrell : Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

    Thomas Gabriel : Nine.

    Matt Farrell : I can't.

    Thomas Gabriel : Eight.

    Matt Farrell : I can't.

    Matt Farrell : [Thomas shoots the air twice]  Okay! Okay, okay.

    Thomas Gabriel : Six.

    Matt Farrell : Okay, stop, stop! Stop. I'm doing it. I'm doing it!

    [starts to unlock it] 

  • [from trailer] 

    Matt Farrell : Shouldn't we call for backup or something?

    John McClane : Makes too much sense.

  • [from trailer] 

    Matt Farrell : [running to a bleeding John McClane]  You okay?

    John McClane : [pause, panting]  I'll let you know in a minute.

  • John McClane : It's Creedence.

    Matt Farrell : Creedence?

    John McClane : Creedence Clearwater Revival? Classic Rock?

    Matt Farrell : I know what it is. It's OLD rock. That doesn't make it classic. What sucked back then still sucks today.

    John McClane : You don't like Creedence?

    Matt Farrell : This is like having a pine cone shoved in my ass. McClain turns the music louder Really? That's mature!

  • John McClane : Come on. Government's gonna have dozens of departments dedicated to that shit!

    Matt Farrell : It took FEMA *five days* to get water to the Superdome.

  • Lucy McClane : Who are you?

    Matt Farrell : Matt Farrell.

    Lucy McClane : Lucy McClane.

    Matt Farrell : I thought your name was Gennero. Lucy Gennero?

    Lucy McClane : Not today.

  • [recognizing female terrorist's voice over the police radio] 

    Matt Farrell : That's her!

    John McClane : "Her" who?

    Agent Johnson : What're you talking about?

    Matt Farrell : It's them.

    John McClane : Are you saying it's "them" them?

    Matt Farrell : I *swear* to you, I know her! I would know her voice anywhere!

    [McClane picks up handset] 

    Matt Farrell : Don't say anything! Don't...

    John McClane : Just keep your mouth shut for a minute.

    [to terrorists over radio] 

    John McClane : Hey, Metro, how's your day goin' over there? Yeah, you gotta be pretty, uh, crazy over there, what with all those 5-87's, huh?

    Mai Lihn : Yes, sir, we've had to dispatch all units.

    John McClane : Yeah, you had to dispatch all units for all the naked people walkin' around?

  • Mai Lihn : [twisting Matt's right hand up his back]  Undo everything you just did!

    Matt Farrell : [panicking]  Ok. Ok.

    [after a moment's beat] 

    Matt Farrell : You know I could do it a lot faster if I have my right hand... I'm a righty! I need my right hand!

  • Matt Farrell : It's an e-bomb!

  • John McClane : How do you know all this stuff?

    Matt Farrell : Dude I don't know. There is a lot rattling around up there. I couldn't tell you.

  • John McClane : [after being in a car accident]  You alright?

    Matt Farrell : No, I'm not alright!

    John McClane : [gets out of the car amused]  Just stay in the car. You'll be alright.
