From the script
INTERIOR Burj Khalifa Hotel — Room 119-D — Day

Benji: Wow. We're gonna have to get to the server from the outside.
Ethan: What?
Benji: The firewalls on the building's server is military grade. This'd be a cinch if I could call Dave back at headquarters. But Dave doesn't exist any more. And neither do we—I could hack through. But it'd take hours.
Ethan: Then we hard—wire in...?
Benji: And there's at least four layers of next—gen security. I'm telling you, there's no getting to it from inside the building—
Ethan: What floor is it on?
Benji: 130th.
Brandt: If we can't get to that server and take control of the elevators and security cameras, this whole operation is over before it began.
Benji: We have to get to it from the outside.


Ethan knows what Benji is suggesting. As Benji and Brandt stare at Ethan...


Ethan: We...?
Benji: (deflecting) I'm behind the computer. Ethan looks to Brandt—
Brandt: I'm the helper.


Ethan considers. Looking for any other options...
Ethan: Elevator shaft?
Benji: (shaking his head "no") Infrared sensors.
Ethan: Vent duct access?
Benji: Pressure sensitive.
Ethan: How am I supposed to do this?


Benji flings something across the room, sticking it to the window. It's the Gecko Glove. Ethan stares at the Glove, then turns to Benji.

A window panel is removed, and pulled inside the room by Brandt and Benji. Ethan picks up the gloves.


INTERIOR Burj Khalifa Hotel — Room 119-D — Day


Ethan is now in his climbing gear, wearing the Gecko Gloves.

Benji: (re: the Gecko Gloves) Remember, it's a rolling off motion that disengages the bond. Blue is glue.
Ethan: And red?
Benji: Dead. But don't worry about that.
