[to Bond] Unfortunately I overestimated you, you are just a stupid police man... [metal door opens and guards enter] ...whose luck has run out.


M: If you carry a double-O number, it means you're licenced to kill, not get killed.

Felix Leiter: You Limeys can be pretty touchy about trespassing.

Both hands on the wheel, Mr. Jones, I'm a very nervous passenger.

[Professor Dent tries to kill Bond, but his gun is out of bullets] That's a Smith & Wesson, and you've had your six. [shoots Dent twice]

Tell me Miss Trench, do you play any other games?

[Bond pulls up to the front of Government House with a dead man sitting up in the backseat] Sergeant, make sure he doesn't get away.

[to Honey Ryder] I can assure you, my intentions are strictly honorable.

East, West, just points of the compass, each as stupid as the other.

Photographer: You'll be sorry! You'll all be sorry, you rats!

John Strangways: That's it. Hundred honors and ninety below.
Professor R. J. Dent: Nicely done, Strangways. I have to give it to you.
John Strangways: I must leave you for a few minutes. Order a round on my chit, will you Professor.
Professor R. J. Dent: Right.
Gen. Potter: Damn it all! Must you break off at this time every evening?
John Strangways: Sorry, General. My managing director is a creature of habit. There's a call booked through to me every day about this time.

[James Bond's first scene, winning a game of chemin-de-fer]
James Bond: I admire your courage, Miss...?
Sylvia Trench: Trench. Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck, Mr...?
James Bond: Bond. James Bond.

Sylvia Trench: When did you say you had to leave?
James Bond: Immediately... almost immediately.

Miss Moneypenny: James! Where have you been? I've been searching all over London for you. [Picks up phone] 007 is here sir.
[Slaps Bond's hand away from the papers on her desk]
James Bond: Moneypenny! What gives?
Miss Moneypenny: Me, given an ounce of encouragement. You've never taken me to dinner looking like this. You've never taken me to dinner...
James Bond: I would, you know. Only "M" would have me court-martialed for... illegal use of government equipment.
Miss Moneypenny: Flattery will get you nowhere - but don't stop trying.

Major Boothroyd: [to M, referring to Bond's Baretta] Nice and light... in a lady's handbag.
M: Any comment, 007?
James Bond: I disagree, sir. I've carried the Baretta for ten years, and I've never missed with it.
M: No, but it jammed on you last job, and you spent six months in hospital in consequence. When you carry a 00 number, you have a license to kill, not get killed. Furthermore, since I've been head of MI7 [sic - MI6] there's been a forty percent drop in casualties, and I want to keep it that way. From now on you carry the Walther... unless you'd rather return to standard intelligence duties.
James Bond: No sir,I would not.
M: [to Boothroyd] Show him, Armourer.
Major Boothroyd: [to Bond] Walther PPK, 7.65 millimeter, with a delivery like a brick through a plate-glass window. The American CIA swear by them.
