Man #1: Mr. Sawyer, is your family enjoying their stay?
Will Sawyer: Very much so. They’re shocked you gave us the entire floor.
Man #1: After your security assessment, what do you think of the building?
Man #2: With all due respect, he is a glorified security guard.
Man #1: Please.
Will Sawyer: The Pearl is the tallest most advanced building in the world. You’ve build a vertical city, but you’ve brought with it every single safety and security challenge that I could think of. Not only have you brought them all indoors, but you’ve trapped them two hundred and forty floors in the air. No one really knows what would happen if things go wrong. But I’m just a glorified security guard, so what the hell do I know anyway?
Terrorist: We thought this floor was empty.
Sarah Sawyer: So did I.
Will Sawyer: What’s going on?
Man #1: The ninety-sixth floor is on fire.
