And the amusing "007 of Plainview, New Jersey" line leads me to believe there's more of that to come.
Could you explain that line, please?
The town itself doesn't matter, it's just McClane sarcastically calling (I'm assuming) himself James Bond, and remarking on how funny that is given his working class everyman background. He must have just done some James Bondian badass spy thing.

On second viewing, he says Plainfield, NJ, not Plainview, which confused me at first since Plainview is in New York.
I think he talks to his son, who is supposed to be some kind of spy.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
