"A Good Day To Die Hard" movie quotes follow the action as the "Die Hard" franchise returns for a fifth film installment. While the previous films were based off of the novel Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorp, "A Good Day To Die Hard" uses an original screenplay written by Skip Woods. John Moore directs the action film which was released in the United States on February 14, 2013.

In "A Good Day To Die Hard," Bruce Willis is back as the lead character of John McClane, a New York City detective who doubles as a terrorist fighter. John travels to Moscow, Russia, in this sequel to meet up with his estranged son, Jack, portrayed by Jai Courtney. Jack has found himself behind bars in Moscow and John flies in to help with Jack's release.

After a somewhat awkward reunion between father and son, it doesn't take long for both to realize that they are dealing with something much bigger than a simple arrest. John and Jack go on to battle terrorists in Russia, complete with the big explosions and all the "yippee ki-yay" one can expect from a "Die Hard" film. Sebastian Koch, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Yuliya Snigir, Radivoje Bukvic and Cole Hauser all co-star in the movie.

If four "Die Hard" movies were enough for you, instead check out other movies playing such as "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," "Side Effects," "Identity Thief," "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," "Stand Up Guys," "Warm Bodies," "Bullet to the Head," "Movie 43," "Django Unchained," "Killing Them Softly," "Hitchcock," "Skyfall," "Lincoln," "Flight," "Playing for Keeps," and "Silver Linings Playbook."

Even Bigger Mess

Lucy: "Dad, try, try not to make an even bigger mess of things."
John: "Yippee ki-yay"

Apparently Lucy, John's daughter, has seen the other "Die Hard" films and knows that he has a tendency to cause trouble, even when he means well. As she drops him off at the airport, she reminds him to behave while in Russia. Of course, John responds with his typical "Die Hard" line, without the profanity.

Welcome to Moscow

Cabbie: "First time in Moscow?"
John: "Yeah, first time"
Cabbie: "American?"
John: "Yeah, New York"
Cabbie: "Are you a cop?"
John: "Yeah"
Cabbie: "Welcome to Moscow!"

Either this cabbie has incredible powers of observation or John just looks like an American visiting Moscow for the first time. The cabbie takes an immediate interest in John once he learns John is a cop, giving a hint that perhaps the cabbie feels that Moscow needs more help in the law enforcement department.

Do You Think I Understand?

John: "Hey, hey, hey! Ow!"
G-Wagon Driver: [yells in Russian]
John: "What?"
G-Wagon Driver: [yells again in Russian]
John: "Do you think I understand a word you're saying? Geez! It's okay. I'm fine, thanks!"

Even with a language barrier, there is a universal sign for "hey driver, stop before you hit me in the middle of the road." Apparently this guy missed that.

Alik: "Give me your weapons… Do you know what I hate about Americans? Everything, especially cowboys"
[John and Jack laugh]
Alik: "What's funny there?"
John: "It's not you. I love these outfits."
[Fire fight begins]
John: "Do you remember the last time we talked before you went away?"
Jack: "Oh no, no, no, no. You're not going to open up that right before we die. So that's not your thing, John."
John: "What's my thing?"
Jack: "Killing bad guys, that's your thing."
John: "You're not going to die today."

In the heat of battle and after outwitting Alik, John attempts to make peace with Jack. Jack however is not having any of it and doesn't want to talk about the past right before they die, especially as that is not John's strong suit.

Old School

John: "Couple of fresh coats of paint and a weed-wacker and it's good to go… Don't give me that look… You got a plan?"
Jack: "Not really. Kind of thought we'd just wing it. Run in, guns a blazin' make it up as we go."
John: "What is this, a pirate gun?"
Jack: "Yeah, it's old school. Like you, right?"
John: "Right. Let's go kill some scumbags."

While Jack does not have a real plan on how they can overtake the small army inside that building, he did have enough foresight to bring in some old school weapons, perfect for his aging but still tough guy dad.

Need a Hug?

John: "Need a hug?"
Jack: "We're not a hugging family."
John: "Damn straight"

John offers a hug to son Jack, at least he jokes about it. Jack knows that they are not the typical family who hugs, something John does not disagree about.

John: "The 007 of Plainfield, New Jersey"

A simple comparison, where John McClane compares himself to James Bond, is actually quite spot on. The MI6 has James Bond, a refined and classy secret agent while America, more specifically New Jersey, has John McClane, a brash tough guy who likes blowing things up.

John: "Jack!!"
Jack: "Dad?!"

Jack, John's son, is clearly surprised to see his father halfway around the world. They didn't have the closest relationship, especially after how they left things the last time they spoke.
