Mr. White[edit]

  • I always knew death would wear a familiar face, but not yours.
  • You're a kite dancing in a hurricane, Mr. Bond. So long. [shoots himself in the head with a pistol]

Franz Oberhauser/Ernst Stavro Blofeld[edit]

  • [in convening a SPECTRE conference in Italy] Welcome, James. It's been a long time. And finally, here we are. What took you so long? [looks up at where Bond is] Cuckoo!
  • [as he prepares to operate on Bond] A man lives inside his head; that's where the seed of his soul is. James and I were both present recently when a man was deprived of his eyes and the most astonishing thing happened, didn't you notice? He wasn't there anymore. He had gone even though he was still alive, so this brief moment between life and death, there was nobody inside his skull. Most odd.
  • The things that bring people together. Out of horror, beauty.


[Moneypenny meets Bond at his flat]
Eve Moneypenny: So what's going on, James? There's not one person at MI6 who isn't talking about it.
James Bond: Talking about... what, exactly?
Eve Moneypenny: That what you did in Mexico was a step too far. That you're finished.
James Bond: And what do you think?
Eve Moneypenny: I think you're just getting started.
James Bond: I don't know what you mean.
Eve Moneypenny: Fine. I think you've got a secret. And it's something you won't tell anyone because you don't trust anyone. [Bond switches on the TV, revealing a video message from the now-deceased previous M]
M: [on TV] 007, if anything happens to me for some reason, I need you to do something. Find a man called Marco Sciarra. Kill him... and don't miss the funeral.
Eve Moneypenny: Jesus! Where did you get it?
James Bond: From my mailbox, just after she died.
Eve Moneypenny: She was never short of surprises.
James Bond: She wasn't gonna let death get in the way of her job.

Clinic Barman: Can I get you something, sir?
James Bond: Vodka martini. Shaken, not stirred.
Clinic Barman: I'm sorry, we don't serve alcohol.
James Bond: [sarcastically] I'm already starting to love this place...
Q: [approaching the bar from Bond's left] He'll have the prolytic digestive enzyme shake.

Lucia Sciarra: Did you kill my husband?
James Bond: He was an assassin. He wouldn't have taken it personally.

[James Bond finds Mr White in Austria and talks to him about SPECTRE's leader]
Mr. White: I always knew death would wear a familiar face, but not yours. To what do I owe this pleasure, Mr. Bond?
James Bond: I was at a meeting recently and your name came up.
Mr. White: I'm flattered London is still talking about me.
James Bond: It wasn't MI6, It was Rome, Your team, not mine.
Mr. White: Ah. Last month, I found thallium in my cell phone. It's done its job. I have a few weeks, Maybe less. So, here we are, Mr. Bond. two dead men enjoying the evening.
James Bond: What did you do?
Mr. White: I disobeyed him. I followed him as far as I could. He changed.
James Bond: Oh, I see, You grew a conscience.
Mr. White: Our game is our game. But this? women? children?
James Bond: Well, the thallium would suggest that he doesn't like you very much anymore. And clearly the feeling is mutual. So why don't you tell me how to find him again?
Mr. White: Oh, come on.
James Bond: Tell me where he is.
Mr. White: He's Everywhere! Everywhere! He's sitting at your desk, He's kissing your lover, He's eating supper with your family!

Madeleine Swann: Argh! Don't touch me!
James Bond: Hey! You need to take a breath and calm down. You're in shock.
Madeleine Swann: Get away from me! Just get away! Did it cross your mind that you led them to me?
James Bond: I haven't got time for this. You need to tell me everything you know about L'Amricain.
Madeleine Swann: Go to hell!
James Bond: I gave your father my word!
Madeleine Swann: And why should I trust you? Because my father did?
James Bond: Because right now, Dr. Swann, I'm your best chance of staying alive.

Max Denbigh: You can't really tell me that one man in the field can compete with all of this, running around out there with his license to kill.
M: Have you ever had to kill a man, Max? Have you? To pull that trigger, you have to be sure. Yes, you investigate, analyze, assess, target. And then you have to look him in the eye. And you make the call. And all the drones, bugs, cameras, transcripts, all the surveillance in the world can't tell you what to do next. A license to kill is also a license not to kill.

Max Denbigh: [on the phone to his contact] Go back and find M, NOW! We need them both. [hangs up and attempts to log in to MI6, only to find that his access has been denied and the Nine Eyes program's shutdown has been initiated]
M: Not a good feeling being watched, is it?
Max Denbigh: Don't tell me you're responsible for this.
M: No, but my quartermaster is. And he's extremely talented.
Max Denbigh: Oh, bravo. But in case you hadn't realized it, you two are out of a job. so you're trespassing.
M: I'm afraid you've got the wrong end of the stick, Max. We're going to stop this system going online, and then I'm going to bring you in.
Max Denbigh: On what grounds, exactly?
M: Poor taste in friends.
Max Denbigh: Take a look at the world. Chaos. Because people like you, paper-pushers and politicians, are too spineless to do what needs to be done. So I made an alliance to put the power where it should be, and now you want to throw it away for the sake of democracy, whatever the hell that is. How predictably moronic. But then, isn't that what M stands for? "Moron"?
[C aims a pistol at M and pulls the trigger; nothing happens]
M: And now we know what C stands for. [reveals that he has the bullets that C thought were in his gun] "Careless".

[Bond has Oberhauser at his mercy, seemingly about to kill him.]
Franz Oberhauser: Finish it. Finish it.
James Bond: [lowers his gun] Out of bullets. [looks at Swann] And besides, I've got something better to do.



  • Sometimes, the dead don't stay dead.
