James Bond

  • Both hands on the wheel, Mr. Jones, I'm a very nervous passenger.
  • [Professor Dent tries to kill Bond, but his gun is out of bullets] That's a Smith & Wesson, and you've had your six. [shoots Dent twice]
  • Tell me Miss Trench, do you play any other games?
  • [Bond pulls up to the front of Government House with a dead man sitting up in the backseat] Sergeant, make sure he doesn't get away.
  • [to Honey Ryder] I can assure you, my intentions are strictly honorable.

Dr. No

  • East, West, just points of the compass, each as stupid as the other.
  • [to Bond] Unfortunately I overestimated you, you are just a stupid police man... [metal door opens and guards enter] ...whose luck has run out.

Others

  • M: If you carry a double-O number, it means you're licenced to kill, not get killed.
  • Felix Leiter: You Limeys can be pretty touchy about trespassing.
  • Photographer: You'll be sorry! You'll all be sorry, you rats!

Dialogue

John Strangways: That's it. Hundred honors and ninety below.
Professor R. J. Dent: Nicely done, Strangways. I have to give it to you.
John Strangways: I must leave you for a few minutes. Order a round on my chit, will you Professor.
Professor R. J. Dent: Right.
Gen. Potter: Damn it all! Must you break off at this time every evening?
John Strangways: Sorry, General. My managing director is a creature of habit. There's a call booked through to me every day about this time.

[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, Mr...?
James Bond: Bond. James Bond.

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

Miss Moneypenny: James! Where have you been? I've been searching all over London for you. [Picks up phone] 007 is here sir.
[Slaps Bond's hand away from the papers on her desk]
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.

Major Boothroyd: [to M, referring to Bond's Baretta] Nice and light... in a lady's handbag.
M: Any comment, 007?
James Bond: I disagree, sir. I've carried the Baretta for ten years, and I've never missed with it.
M: No, but it jammed on you last job, and you spent six months in hospital in consequence. When you carry a 00 number, you have a license to kill, not get killed. Furthermore, since I've been head of MI7 [sic - MI6] there's been a forty percent drop in casualties, and I want to keep it that way. From now on you carry the Walther... unless you'd rather return to standard intelligence duties.
James Bond: No sir,I would not.
M: [to Boothroyd] Show him, Armourer.
Major Boothroyd: [to Bond] Walther PPK, 7.65 millimeter, with a delivery like a brick through a plate-glass window. The American CIA swear by them.

Miss Taro: What should I say to an invitation from a strange gentleman?
James Bond: You should say yes.
Miss Taro: [shaking her head] I should say maybe.

James Bond: Good evening, sir.
M: It happens to be 3 a.m. When do you sleep, 007?
James Bond: Never on the firm's time, sir.

James Bond: Don't worry. I'm not supposed to be here either.
Honey Ryder: Are you looking for shells too?
James Bond: No, I'm just looking.

[Bond admires a huge aquarium as Dr. No enters]
Dr. No: One million dollars, Mr. Bond. You were wondering what it cost.
James Bond: As a matter of fact, I was.

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. The same old dream. Our asylums are full of people who think they're Naploeon. Or God.

Dr. No: I'm a member of SPECTRE
James Bond: SPECTRE?
Dr. No: SPECTRE. Special Executive for Counter Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, 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: [to Bond] I had even hoped that there would be a position for you in our organization.
James Bond: I'm honored. Of course, I'd prefer the Revenge department. My first job would be to find out who killed Strangways and Quarrel.

Dr. No: That's a Dom Perignon '55, it would be a pity to break it.
James Bond: I prefer the '53 myself.

Sister Lily: [Showing prisoners Bond and Honey around their room] Don't hesitate to ring if there's anything else you want. Anything at all.
James Bond: Two air tickets to London?

Honey Ryder: Have you any idea what they'll do with us?
James Bond: No idea. No door handles or windows, either.
Honey Ryder: It's a prison, then.
James Bond: Mink-lined, with first-class service.

Honey Ryder: How can you eat at a time like this?
James Bond: I'm hungry. We don't know when we'll get the chance to eat again. Here, take this. [whispering] Careful. The whole place is probably wired for sound.

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.

Felix Leiter: Ahoy, Mr. Bond! Ahoy, Mr. Bond!
James Bond: Well, well. What's the matter? Do you need help?
[Honey stands up into plain view]
Felix Leiter: Quite sure you don't.
James Bond: Well, now that you're here, you'd better give us a tow.
Felix Leiter: Throw us your line.
