It was Argyle's first day driving the limo, modelled after a Lincoln Town Car, and he was a little nervous. He previously drove a taxi so he was chatty with McClane, who decided to ride in the front seat. At Nakatomi Plaza, Argyle offered to wait in the garage until John knew for certain if he was riding home with Holly or if he needed other transportation. He was unknowingly locked into the garage by the Nakatomi vault heist team and called his girlfriend from the limo as he waited. Up until he turns on the TV, Argyle spends most of his time blissfully listening to Stevie Wonder's 'Skeletons', talking to McClane's bear and drinking the many fancy beverages inside the limo. While watching the news, Argyle finally discovers that terrorists have seized the plaza. He tries to escape the garage but realizes that he is completely locked in. From then on, Argyle watches the action from the news broadcast and listens in with the limo's CB radio. Nearing the end of the terrorist takeover, Argyle notices Theo trying to prepare an ambulance for the terrorists' escape. Finding this awfully suspicious, Argyle rams the ambulance with his limo and knocks out Theo with a punch to the jaw, shaking his hand in triumph. At the end, Argyle drove John and Holly home to celebrate Christmas Eve. It is unknown what happened to Argyle afterwards probably he is then awarded for helping John McClane dealing Hans and his terrorist and preventing Theo from escaping.
De'voreaux White, who portrays Argyle, actually punched Clarence Gilyard (Theo) in the escape attempt scene. White said McTiernan and the crew wanted to see a real actor pull it off because the last takes were not realistic.
