A medium dry martini, lemon peel, shaken, not stirred.
  • A medium dry martini, lemon peel, shaken, not stirred.
  • That's a Smith & Wesson, and you've had your six. [Bond shoots Dent twice, killing him.]

Dr. No

  • Unfortunately I misjudged you, you are just a stupid policeman ... [metal door opens and guards enter] ... whose luck has run out.


  • If you carry a double-O number, it means you're licensed to kill, not get killed.


[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, Mister...?
James Bond: Bond. James Bond.

Felix Leiter: Where did you get that suit?
James Bond: My tailor, in Savile Row.
Felix Leiter: Mine's from Washington. Felix Leiter, Central Intelligence Agency.

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

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.

[Bond outruns a hearse full of henchmen (the "Three Blind Mice") through a construction site on a hill, causing the hearse to careen off the road and explode]
Construction worker: How did it happen?
James Bond: I think they were on their way to a funeral.

Dr. No: I'm a member of SPECTRE.
James Bond: [confused] SPECTRE?
Dr. No: SPECTRE. SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion. The four great cornerstones of power headed by the greatest brains in the world.
James Bond: Correction. Criminal brains!
Dr. No: The successful criminal brain is always superior. It has to be!

Dr. No: The Americans are fools. I offered my services, they refused. So did the East. Now they can both pay for their mistake.
James Bond: World domination, same old dream. In England, our sanitariums are full of men who think they are Napoleon. Or God.

Honey Ryder: I put a black widow spider underneath his mosquito net ... a female, they're the worst. It took him a whole week to die. [Bond looks shocked] Did I do wrong?
James Bond: Well, it wouldn't do to make a habit of it.
