And Kelsey and Gruber get one very similar line: Gruber: "Touching cowboy. Or should I call you Mr McClane? Officer John McClane of the New York Police Department." Kelsey: "Mr Mott. Or should I call you Lieutenant? Lieutenant Commander perhaps? Also, in Die Hard, Gruber posed as a hostage to fool McClane. Picard poses as the ship's barber to fool Kelsey.
