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..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 Tan-Sun Moon: 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.
Colonel Tan-Sun 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]
James Bond: From your modest little collection of cars, I would never have guessed.
Colonel Tan-Sun Moon: Show me the diamonds.
James Bond: Show me the weapons. [Zao picks up his radio]
Zao: [subtitled, Korean] Bring the weapons. [The gate opens and several hovercraft enter the compound]
James Bond: Adding weapons in the demilitarized zone. That's a bit of a minefield out there.
Colonel Tan-Sun 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]
Colonel Tan-Sun 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: [subtitled] Check it over, quick. [The analyst opens the briefcase and looks at the diamonds]
James Bond: Don't blow it all at once.
Colonel Tan-Sun Moon: Oh, I have special plans for this consignment. [Zao checks his cell phone, and sees that he's received Bond's MI6 file. He motions to Colonel Moon to come over]
Zao: His name is James Bond, a British assassin. [Colonel Moon thinks about this. A moment later, he turns around and takes off his cap]
Colonel Tan-Sun 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 spins 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]
Colonel Tan-Sun 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.
James Bond: Then you and I have something in common. [Chatter comes over Zao's radio]
Zao: [subtitled] Who is it? [Colonel Moon's father, General Moon, is driving in a convoy nearby]
General Moon: [subtitled] Where's my son?
Zao: [to Moon] It's the General. [He hands Colonel Moon the radio]
Colonel Tan-Sun Moon: Hello, father.
General Moon: Why is there a fire? I'll be there in five minutes. [Colonel Moon puts down his radio]
Colonel Tan-Sun Moon: [to his soldiers] Get the weapons out of here, and kill the spy! [Zao and a couple of soldiers hustle Bond away while Colonel Moon jumps on one of the fleeing hovercraft]

[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?
James 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.
James Bond: [Activates the knife in the briefcase used in From Russia With Love ] Hmm, point taken.
Q: Must you touch everything?
James 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-
James Bond: So where is this cutting-edge stuff?
Q: I'm trying to get to it!

James 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.
James 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 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]
James 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]
James 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]
James Bond: 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.
James 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?'

James Bond: Come on, Jinx, where are you?
Zao: All units report,NOW!

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.

James 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.

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.

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.

M: If you'd just told me about your agent in Cuba-
Mr. Falco: She'd be dead already. Your mole would've made sure of that.
M: We wouldn't have had a mole at all if you'd disclosed to us the fact that Ms. Frost and Moon were on the Harvard fencing team together.

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: [yanks Graves' parachute cord] Time to face gravity. [Graves is sucked out of the plane and into one of its engines.]
