James BondEdit

  • Madame, I've, er, come to offer my... sincere condolences. [punches the "widow" in the face]
  • [placing Fiona's body in a chair after she is shot] Do you mind if my friend sits this one out? She's just dead.
  • It looks very difficult. [shooting from the hip, Bond shatters his clay pigeon] Why no, it isn't, is it!


  • Pat Fearing: [after strapping Bond to the motorized traction table] There, first time I've felt safe all day.


Pat Fearing: What exactly do you do?
Bond: Oh, I travel... a sort of licensed troubleshooter.

Miss Moneypenny: In the conference room. Something pretty big. Every double-o man in Europe has been rushed in. And the Home Secretary too.
Bond: His wife probably lost her dog.

M: I've assigned you to Station "C" Canada.
Bond: Sir, I'd respectfully request that you change my assignment to Nassau.
M: Is there any other reason, besides your enthusiasm for water sports?

[Bond shows M a picture of Dominique Derval, the Vulcan pilot's sister]
M: Do we know where she is now?
Bond: Nassau.
M: Do you think she's worth going after?
Bond: Well, I wouldn't put it quite like that, sir...

[As Q is showing Bond new gadgets]
Q: It is to be handled with special care!
Bond: Everything you give me...
Q: treated with equal contempt. Yes, I know.

Bond: Perhaps we could have a drink.
Domino: No.
Bond: My dear, uncooperative Domino.
Domino: How do you know that? How do you know my friends call me Domino?
Bond: It's on the bracelet on your ankle.
Domino: So... what sharp little eyes you've got.
Bond: Wait 'til you get to my teeth.

Bond: That gun, it looks more fitting for a woman.
Emilio Largo: You know much about guns, Mr. Bond?
Bond: No, but I know a little about women.

Fiona: Some men just don't like to be driven.
Bond: No, some men don't like to be taken for a ride.

Bond: [after making love to the evil Fiona Volpe] My dear girl, don't flatter yourself. What I did this evening was for King and country. You don't think it gave me any pleasure, do you?
Fiona: But of course, I forgot your ego, Mr. Bond. James Bond, the one where he has to make love to a woman, and she starts to hear heavenly choirs singing. She repents, and turns to the side of right and virtue... [she steps on Bond's foot] ... but not this one! What a blow for you, to have actually suffered a defeat!
Bond:[to himself] Well, you can't win them all.

Domino: Vargas's behind you.
James Bond: Really?
Domino: He must have followed us.
[Bond shoots Vargas with a spear gun, pinning him to a coconut tree and killing him]
Bond: I think he got the point.
Domino: It should have been Largo.

[Domino shoots Largo in the back, just as he is about to kill Bond]
Domino: I'm glad I killed him.
Bond: You're glad...

[Bond, Domino and the nuclear scientist are about to jump from the boat as it's about to hit the rocks]
Bond: Come on! Jump!
Scientist: I didn't learn to swim!
Bond: Never too late to learn.
[They all jump]
