James Bond[edit]

  • [At the party in the ice palace of Gustav Graves] Vodka martini. Plenty of ice, if you can spare it.
  • So you lived to die another day.


  • Knowing who to trust is everything in this business.


Colonel Moon: And how do you propose to kill me now, Mr. Bond? It's pathetic that you British still believe you have the right to police the world...but you will not live to see the day all Korea is ruled by the north!
Bond: Then you and I have something in common.

Q: Forgive my mentioning it, 007, but a perfect marksman isn't really supposed to shoot his own boss.
Bond: Check the replay. You'll find he's dead and she's only got a flesh wound.
Q: There's always an excuse, isn't there, 00-Zero?
Bond: Give me the old firing range any day, quartermaster.
Q: Yes, well it's called the future, so get used to it.

Bond: [Looking in Q's lab] So, this is where they keep the old relics, eh?
Q: I'll have you know, this is where our most cutting edge technology is developed.
Bond: [Activates the knife in the briefcase used in From Russia With Love ] Hmm, point taken.
Q: Must you touch everything?
Bond: [Notices the jet-pack from Thunderball ] Does this still work?

[Bond turns on the jet-pack, which starts to take off. Q quickly grabs it and shuts it down]

Q: Now, look-
Bond: So where is this cutting edge stuff?
Q: I'm trying to get to it!

Bond: You know, you're cleverer than you look.
Q: Hmm... still, better than looking cleverer than you are. Follow me, if you please. [Hands Bond a watch] A new watch. This will be your 20th, I believe.
Bond: How time flies.
Q: Yes, well 007, why don't you establish a record by actually returning this one?

Q: [Presses a button on his remote] Your new transportation.

[A bare transport platform shows up]

Bond:...Maybe you've been down here too long.
Q: The ultimate in British engineering. [Walks onto the platform. His image distorts, showing something is on the platform]
Bond You must be joking!
Q: As I learned from my predecessor, Bond, I never joke about my work. Aston-Martin calls it "The Vanquish", we call it "The Vanish". [Presses a button, exposing a new spy car]
Bond: Oh, very good.
Q: Adaptive camouflage. Tiny cameras on all sides project the image they see onto a light-emitting polymer skin on the other side. See, to the casual eye, it's as good as invisible. Plus, all the usual refinements: ejector seat, torpedoes, target-seeking shotguns to shoot down mobile objects [Reaches into the car, pulls out a big manual, handing it to Bond] Why don't you acquaint yourself with the manual? You should be able to shoot through that in a couple hours.
Bond: [Tosses the manual in the air. The activated target-seeking shotguns promptly shoot it to pieces] Just took a few seconds, Q.
Q: Wish I could make you vanish.

Bond: You think I haven't forgotten you're Chinese Intelligence, Chang?
Chang: Hong Kong's our turf now, Bond.
Bond: Well, don't worry. I'm not here to take it back.

Reporter: Are you going to try out for the British fencing team? We hear you have been training furiously.
Gustav Graves: I never get furious. As we say in fencing, "What's the point?'

Gustav Graves: Are you a gambling man, Mr. Bond?
James Bond: If the stakes are right.
Gustav Graves: Is $1000 a point too much? [Bond shrugs] Verity, care to make a bet?
Verity: No thanks. I don't like cockfights.

Bond: Can I expect the pleasure of you in Iceland?
Miranda Frost: I'm afraid you'll never have that pleasure, Mr. Bond.

M: Tell me what you know of James Bond.
Miranda Frost: He's a 00, and a wild one, as I discovered today. He'll light the fuse on any explosive situation and be a danger to himself and others. Kill first, ask questions later. I think he's a blunt instrument whose primary method is to provoke and confront.

Bond: You looked like a man on the edge of losing control.
Graves: It's only by being on the edge that we know who we really are- under the skin. Take your Donald Campbell; 1967, the Bluebird, water speed record.
Bond: Of course. Campbell died on his return run.
Graves: Yeah, but he died chasing a dream. Isn't that the way to go?
Bond: I'd rather not go at all. I see you don't chase dreams: you live them.
Graves: One of the virtues of never sleeping, Mr. Bond. I have to live my dreams. Besides, plenty of time to sleep when you're dead.

Kil: I'm Mr. Kil.
Bond: Well, there's a name to die for.

Bond: You know, I've missed your sparkling personality.
[Zao punches him in the stomach.]
Zao: How's that for a punchline?

Zao: Why do you want to kill me?
Jinx: I thought it was the humane thing to do.
Zao: [Shocks Jinx again] Who sent you?
Jinx:...Yo Mama! And she told me to tell you, she's very disappointed in you.

Bond: [To Jinx, who's tied to a chair] So...a girl that doesn't like to be tied down, huh?
Jinx: Are you going to get me off this thing?
Bond: What are you, CIA?
Jinx: NSA...HELLO! We're on the same side!
Bond: Doesn't mean we're fighting the same war.
Jinx: Sure, it does. World peace, unconditional love, and your friend with the expensive acne.

Miranda Frost: Hah! I can read your every move!
[Jinx stabs Miranda with a knife embedded in a copy of Sun Tzu's "The Art of War"]
Jinx: Read THIS... [kicks the knife in Miranda's chest] bitch!

[Bond is about to get thrown out of a plane by Graves.]
Graves: You see, Mr. Bond, you can't kill my dreams... but my dreams can kill you! Time to face destiny!
Bond: [yanks Graves' parachute cord] Time to face gravity! [Graves is sucked out of the plane and into one of its engines.]
