James Bond[edit]

  • [At the party in the ice palace of Gustav Graves] Vodka martini. Plenty of ice, if you can spare it.
  • [figures out that Gustav Graves and Colonel Moon are the same person] So you lived to die another day..Colonel.


  • Knowing who to trust is everything in this business.


[Bond arrives in Colonel Moon's camp. As he steps off, briefcase in hand, Zao uses his cell phone to snap a picture of Bond]
Zao: I am Zao. You are late.
Colonel Moon Tan-Sun: Mr. Van Bierk! I've been looking forward to this meeting.
James Bond: Me, too. [takes off his sunglasses] My African military friends owe you many thanks, Colonel Moon. Few men have the guts to trade conflict diamonds since the UN embargo.
Moon: I know all about the UN. I studied at Oxford and Harvard. Majored in Western hypocrisy. [Bond glances at Colonel Moon's collection of imported sportscars]
Bond: From your modest little collection of cars, I would never have guessed.
Moon: Show me the diamonds.
Bond: Show me the weapons. [Zao picks up his radio]
Zao: [radios in Korean] Bring the weapons. [The gate opens and several hovercraft enter the compound]
Bond: Hiding weapons in the Demilitarized Zone. That's a bit of a minefield out there.
Moon: America's cultural contribution. One million landmines, and my hovercrafts float right over them.
[The hovercraft carrying the weapons comes to a stop next to Bond]
Moon: RPGs, flamethrowers, automatic weapons, and enough ammunition to run a small war. My diamonds? [Bond starts to hand the briefcase to Moon. Zao grabs it and hands it to Moon's diamond analyst]
Zao: [in Korean] Check it over, quick. [The analyst opens the briefcase and looks at the diamonds]
Bond: Don't blow it all at once.
Moon: Oh, I have special plans for this consignment. [Zao checks his cell phone, and sees Bond's MI6 file on screen. He looks at Colonel Moon, who comes over]
Zao: [whispers] His name is James Bond, a British assassin. [Colonel Moon thinks about this. A moment later, he turns around and takes off his cap]
Moon: Mr. Van Bierk, let me show you something. [He hops on the hovercraft and is handed an XM29 launcher] Our new tankbuster. Depleted uranium shells, naturally.
James Bond: Naturally.
[Colonel Moon looks at Bond - and suddenly fires the launcher at Bond's helicopter, which explodes. Zao draws his pistol and holds it to Bond's head. Bond tries to draw his gun but is disarmed by another soldier]
Moon: How do you propose to kill me now, Mr. Bond? [Colonel Moon hops off the hovercraft] 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.

Bond: [Observing Jinx toweling off after she's taken a swim] Magnificent view.
Jinx: [Turns and looks at Bond] It is, isn't it? Too bad it's lost on the rest of us.
Bond: Mojito? [Offers her his drink]
Jinx: [Offers Bond her hand instead] Giacinta Johnson. My friends call me "Jinx".
Bond: [shakes her hand] My friends call me "James Bond." Jinx, you say?
Jinx: Born on Friday the 13th.
Bond: Do you believe in bad luck?
Jinx: Let's just say my relationships don't seem to last.
Bond: I know the feeling.

[Bond has just shot M in the shoulder during a training exercise]
Q: Forgive my mentioning it, 007, but a perfect marksman isn't really supposed to shoot his own boss.
James 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.

James 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!

Q: [Presses a button on his remote] Your new transportation.
[A bare transport platform glides into the station]
James Bond:... Maybe you've been down here too long.
Q: The ultimate in British engineering. [Walks onto the platform. His image distorts around whatever 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 sportscar]
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 blast it to pieces]
Bond: Just took a few seconds, Q.
Q: Wish I could make you vanish.

James Bond: You looked like a man on the edge of losing control.
Gustav 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.

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

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: Oh, look - parachutes for the both of us! [throws one out of the plane with sarcastic glee] Whoops, not anymore! [dons his own parachute and grabs Bond by the throat] You see, Mr. Bond, you can't kill my dreams... but my dreams can kill you! Time to face destiny.
[Bond suddenly grabs and pulls Graves' parachute cord, deploying the chute and pulling Graves out of the plane. Graves manages to grab the door frame, but grunts in effort desperately holding on.]
Bond: Time to face gravity. [He presses a button on Graves' chest gauntlet, electrocuting Graves, who screams in pain and fury. This causes him to let go of the plane and fly back into the plane's engine, killing him.

[Bond and Jinx are falling in a helicopter, with Bond struggling to turn the engine on]
Jinx: I told you I was a jinx!
James Bond: I should've warned you: my relationships don't seem to last, either.
