James BondEdit

  • [after kicking a car down a cliff] He had no head for heights.
  • [while buying flowers after killing a motorcycle rider] Just send them to the funeral, would you?
  • [To General Gogol, after throwing the ATAC console off a cliff rather than give it to him] That's détente, comrade. You don't have it, I don't have it!

Ernst Stavro Blofeld (pre-credits sequence)Edit

  • [as Bond throws a dead pilot out of the cockpit] Really? Have you no respect for the dead?

DialogueEdit

Blofeld: Mr. Bond! Mr. Bond! We can do a deal! I'll buy you a delicatessen! In stainless steel!
[Bond grabs Blofeld's wheelchair using its landing skids]
Blofeld: Please! Put me down! Put me down!
James Bond: Oh? You want to get off? [drops Blofeld into a chimney]
Blofeld: MISTER BOND!!! [voice trails off on the way down]

Tanner: You were supposed to question Gonzales, not let Miss Havelock perforate him!
James Bond: I quite agree, sir.
Frederick Gray: I'm afraid we have to inform the Prime Minister that Operation Undertow is dead in the water. Why... she'll have our guts for garters!

[at a hotel room, Bibi Dahl gets naked under the sheets]
Bibi Dahl: That's a laugh. Everyone knows it builds up muscle tone.
James Bond: Well, how about you build up a little more muscle tone by putting on your clothes?
Dahl: Don't you like me?
Bond: [Wearily] Why, I think you're wonderful, Bibi... But I don't think your uncle Aris would approve.
Dahl: Him? He thinks I'm still a virgin.
Bond: Yes, well...you get your clothes on and I'll buy you an ice cream.

Countess Lisl von Schlaf: Oops! Me nightie's slipping.
James Bond: So's your accent, Countess. Manchester?
Von Schlaf: Close. Liverpool.
Bond: That was a rather amusing conversation between you and the owner of this. What exactly did Columbo whisper to you at the restaurant?
Von Schlaf: That you were a spy, and to find out more about you.
Bond: And have you?
Von Schlaf: Have I ever.

[Bond enters a confessional]
James Bond: Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
Q: [in disguise as the priest] That's putting it mildly, 007!

[Bond, having completed his mission, is in no mood to speak with his superiors, but rather to go skinny dipping with Melina]
Melina Havelock: For your eyes only, darling.
[Melina and Bond's robes drop to the deck. At MI6 headquarters. Frederick Gray is communicating with Bond via his two-way wristwatch]
Frederick Gray: Good work Bond. Please stand by as we put you through to the Prime Minister.
[Bond hangs up wristwatch by the perch of Max the Parrot and goes swimming with Melina. Scene changes to 10 Downing Street]
The Prime Minister: [over the phone] Ah, Mr. Bond. I wanted to call you personally and to say how pleased we all are that your mission was a success. Thank you.
Max the Parrot: Thank you, thank you.
The Prime Minister: Don't thank me, Mr. Bond. Your courage and resourcefulness are a credit to the nation. Denis and I look forward to meeting you. Meanwhile, if there is anything I can do for you...
Max the Parrot: Give us a kiss, give us a kiss.
The Prime Minister: Well, really, Mr. Bond.
Tanner: I think we're having a little trouble with the line, madam.
Frederick Gray: [to Q] You idiot. Get on to him.
Q: 007. 007??
[Max knocks watch overboard]
Frederick Gray: Bond! Have you gone mad? What's going on? Bond. Bond! BOND!
