  • [about to make love to Helga Brandt] Oh the things I do for England.
  • [Coded message to headquarters after being waylaid by attack helicopters] Little Nelly got a hot reception. Four big shots made improper advances toward her, but she defended her honour with great success.

DialogueEdit

[James is in bed with Ling, a Chinese woman]
Bond: Why do Chinese girls taste different from all other girls?
Ling: You think we better, huh?
Bond: No, just different. Like Peking duck is different from Russian caviar. But I love them both.
Ling: Darling, I give you very best duck.

Miss MoneyPenny: Oh, by the way, how was the girl?
Bond: [turns the lamp towards her, interrogation style] Which girl?
Moneypenny: The... uh... Chinese one we set you up with?
Bond: Another few minutes and I would have found out.

Tiger Tanaka: Permit me to introduce myself. I am Tanaka. Please call me Tiger.
Bond: If you're Tanaka, then how do you feel about me?
Tanaka: [the code response] I... love you.
Bond: Well, I'm glad we got that out of the way.

[Bond is in a hot tub with Tiger Tanaka and four beautiful Japanese girls.]
Tiger Tanaka: In Japan, men come first. Women come second.
Bond: Really? I may just retire to here.

[A car chasing Aki and Bond gets picked up by Tanaka's helicopter and gets dropped into the ocean.]
Tiger Tanaka: How is that for Japanese efficiency?
Bond: Just a drop in the ocean.

[Tiger is showing Bond a shooting cigarette.]
Tiger: It can save your life, this cigarette.
Bond: You sound like a commercial.

[Blofeld has summoned Osato and Helga Brandt to his office]
Blofeld: An unknown Englishman was in your office the other day.
Mr. Osato: Correct, Number One.
Blofeld: [shows X-ray image of a pistol] Do you know what gun this is?
Mr. Osato: [smugly] Walther PPK.
Blofeld: Only one person we know uses this sort of gun. James Bond.
Mr. Osato: [startled] But Bond is dead!
Helga Brandt: It was in all the newspapers!
Blofeld: Rubbish. Bond is alive, unless you killed him, Mr. Osato. Don't tell me you let him go.
Mr. Osato: I gave Number 11 the strictest orders to eliminate him!
Blofeld: And did she?
Mr. Osato: She failed!
Helga Brandt: [to Osato] You should have killed him yourself! You had plenty of opportunity!
Blofeld: This organization does not tolerate failure.
Mr. Osato: I know, but do you see, I...
Blofeld: GO! [sees Osato cross a bridge and leaves room; to Helga] Well? [Helga starts across. Blofeld hits a pedal that causes the bridge bottom to drop out, sending her into the piranha-filled water]
Helga: Aaaah! Osato! Saaaave...[disappears from sight as piranhas kill her to the shock of Osato and two Chinese emissaries]
Blofeld: [addressing Osato as bridge closes back up] Kill Bond! Now!
Mr. Osato: Yes, Number One! Yes. Yes, yes.

Blofeld: James Bond. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Ernst Stavro Blofeld. They told me you were assassinated in Hong Kong.
Bond: Yes, this is my second life.
Blofeld: You only live twice, Mr. Bond.
