"Climax!: Casino Royale (#1.3)" (1954)
Clarence Leiter: Aren't you the fellow who was shot?
James Bond: No, I'm the fellow who was missed.

Clarence Leiter: You know you're here to deal with Herr Ziffer, Le Chiffre, he's the same fellow.
James Bond: Deal with... you mean kill him?
Clarence Leiter: You won't have to, he'll die anyway... if you play your cards right.

Clarence Leiter: [Picking up glass] Have you ever seen Le Chiffre?
James Bond: No.
Clarence Leiter: [Holding glass] Go on explaining the game.
James Bond: [Holding cards] Well you each get two cards - the banker and the dealer. Picture cards and tens count as nothing. The other cards carry their own face value.
Clarence Leiter: [Lighting cigarette] Le Chiffre is the toadlike creature playing at the table in there. He's the chief Soviet agent for this area controlled through Leningrad Section Three through Paris. And he's the most dangerous man they've ever had.
Clarence Leiter: [Smoking cigarette] You can look now.
Clarence Leiter: [Smoking cigarette] He's a fanatic. He's ruthless, incorruptible and everything he does is entirely legal. But he has a weak spot. And that's how you got into it.

James Bond: [Handling cards] All right. I don't kill Le Chiffre, what do I do to him?
Clarence Leiter: His weak spot is gambling. You're going to play baccarat with him and your job is to clean him out.
James Bond: [Handling cards] For what reason?
Clarence Leiter: To destroy him. He's been gambling with Soviet funds and he's lost eighty million francs. Now he's going to try and get it back by gambling high. He's bought the bank for tomorrow night with the last funds of the treasury of his party. He has twenty six million with which to win back the eighty he needs.
James Bond: [Picking up cards] Soviet Police... know about his gambling?
Clarence Leiter: They got wind of it. And that's one reason why he's planning to play high tomorrow night. Now if he should win back that eighty million maybe he can brazen it out, but if you've won and he hasn't...
James Bond: Then what?
Clarence Leiter: We'll see that the story hits the newspapers with photostats of his bank statements, all the dope. French Communist Party will lose face with a very dull thud and we'll have acclomplished our aim, we'll be rid of Le Chiffre.

James Bond: [Handling cards] All right, what else?
Clarence Leiter: [Smoking] You'll have twenty six million francs. The same as he has. I'll pick it up for you from the casino cashier and give it to you tomorrow night.
James Bond: [Handling cards] Ah... that's hardly a safe margin
Clarence Leiter: You've won on less. So you play tomorrow night. And meanwhile, watch your step. They could kill you. They've already tried.

James Bond: [Pontificating] What um... What else do I need to know about him?
Clarence Leiter: [Smoking] He's tough. He's good with a gun. Carries three razor blades for slashing purposes. There's one in his hat band. There's one in the heel of his left shoe. One in his cigarette case. He always has three armed guards with him. They're with him now. You can look.
James Bond: [Looks over his right shoulder]
Clarence Leiter: [Smoking] You see them. The big fella with the blond hair - that's Basil. The fella who looks like a basset hound - the one who walked past just now - that's Zoltan. There's a third character there - he's the thin dark fellow - see him - name of Zuroff. They're in it as deep as he is so be very careful of them.
Clarence Leiter: [Smoking] Oh incidentally - the whole bunch of them are in the suite right above yours at the hotel.
James Bond: Ah well then that's who bugged my room.
Clarence Leiter: [Smoking] Bugged? Oh microphone you mean.

Clarence Leiter: Well it looks like you're as lucky as they say.
James Bond: Hey?
Clarence Leiter: You're a legend old boy - Card Sense Jimmy Bond they call you. I knew you right away.
James Bond: I didn't know I had that much of a reputation.
Clarence Leiter: Oh my dear fellow - look here - how about you give me the lowdown how to play - over a drink? Oh, I'm very sorry, my name's Clarence Leiter.
James Bond: Clarence sure - What have I got to lose?
Clarence Leiter: Do you ever lose old boy? Bar's over there - lead on!

Zuroff: [Clarence Leiter is on telephone. Zuroff walks over with a gun under a black cloak] Mr Leiter
[Points now visible gun at Leiter's back. Leiter turns around to face him. Zuroff conceals gun under cloak]
Zuroff: That money you have. Would you kindly put it on the table. I believe it to be twenty six million francs. We want it.
Clarence Leiter: That makes it very awkward. Because I want it too.
Zuroff: You have exactly ten seconds to do as I say.
Chef DePartre: [Phone rings. The Chef De Partie walks over] Excuse me Mr Leiter.
Clarence Leiter: It's quite all right. I think the call's for me and in any case just a moment would you do me a kind favor. Take this money to the cashier, tell him to hold it for Mr Bond who will pick it up later this evening
[He hands him banknotes from his wallet]
Clarence Leiter: Thank you very much
[Chef de Partie exits]
Clarence Leiter: [Phone rings again] Why don't you pick it up - It might be for you!
[Leiter exits]
