A Good Day To Die Hard Movie Quotes

Updated June 8, 2017 52 votes 9 voters 5.5k views9 items

"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

    Video: YouTube

    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

    Video: YouTube

    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.

    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.

    Nobody's Gonna Die Today

    Video: YouTube

    John: "Nobody's gonna die today."

    Poking fun at the title of the film, John states that nobody's going to die on "a good day to die." This must only apply to the good guys since a bunch of bad guys seem to die in the film.
