From Russia with Love (1963)
[Punches Grant, who doesn't flinch, in the gut with brass knuckles]
Rosa Klebb: He seems fit enough. Have him report to me in Istanbul in 24 hours.

Rosa Klebb: Training is useful, but there is no substitute for experience.
Morzeny: I agree: we use live targets as well.

Rosa Klebb: I hope Kronsteen's efforts as Director of Planning will continue to be as successful as his chess.
Kronsteen: They will be.

Blofeld: [aboard his yacht] Bond is still alive and the Lektor is not yet in our possession. I've negotiated with the Russians for its return; we've agreed on a price. And S.P.E.C.T.R.E. ALWAYS delivers what it promises. Our entire organization survives upon the keeping of those promises...
[to Klebb]
Blofeld: I warned you: We do NOT tolerate failure, Number Three. You know the penalty.
Rosa Klebb: [numbly] Yes, Number One.
Blofeld: Our rules are very simple: if you fail...
[Morzeny kicks Kronsteen with a poisoned blade; he slowly collapses to the floor]
Blofeld: Twelve seconds. One of these days we must invent a faster-working venom. Number Three!
Rosa Klebb: Yes, sir?
Blofeld: I do not wish to have to tell the Russians that there will be ANOTHER delay.
Rosa Klebb: There will be no delay, Number One. There's still time.

[in Rose Klebb's Istanbul office]
Rosa Klebb: Corporal, I have selected you for a most important assignment. It's purpose is to give false information to the enemy. If you complete it successfully, you will be promoted.
[referring to a picture of James Bond]
Rosa Klebb: From now on, you will do anything he says.
Tatiana: And if I refuse?
Rosa Klebb: [icily] Then you will not leave this room alive.
Tatiana: [Thinks for a moment] I will obey your orders.
Rosa Klebb: Good. Now, these are your instructions. You'll report to me here. But the Consulate Security Man must not know that I am in Istanbul. This is classified *far* above his level.
Tatiana: I will say nothing to anyone.
Rosa Klebb: If you do you will be *shot*!
[slams her cane hard against Tatiana's chair]
Rosa Klebb: [flirtatiously] Come, come, my dear.
[Starts rubbing her shoulders]
Rosa Klebb: You're very fortunate to have been chosen for such a simple, delightful duty. A real labor of love, as they say.

Blofeld: Siamese fighting fish, fascinating creatures. Brave but of the whole stupid. Yes they're stupid. Except for the occasional one such as we have here who lets the other two fight. While he waits. Waits until the survivor is so exhausted that he cannot defend himself, and then like SPECTRE... he strikes!
Rosa Klebb: I find the parallel... amusing.
Blofeld: Our organization did not arrange for you to come over from the Russians just for amusement, Number 3.

Blofeld: Three men were found dead on the Orient Express train at Trieste. One of them was Grant. What have you got to say about that Number Five?
Kronsteen: It was Klebb's choice. Her people failed.
Rosa Klebb: It was your plan they followed implicitly.
Kronsteen: Impossible. It was perfect.
Rosa Klebb: Except for one thing, they were dealing with Bond.
Kronsteen: Who is Bond compared with Kronsteen?

Blofeld: Number 3, is your section ready to carry out Kronsteen's directives?
Rosa Klebb: Yes, Number 1. The operation will be organized according to Kronsteen's plan. I have selected a suitable girl from the Russian consulate in Istanbul. She's capable, cooperative, and her loyalty to the State is beyond question.
Blofeld: And you're absolutely sure she believes you're still head of operations for Soviet Intelligence?
Rosa Klebb: It is most unlikely she would know I'm now working for SPECTRE. Moscow has kept my defection secret from everyone but a few members of the Presidium.
Blofeld: For your sake, I hope so.

Rosa Klebb: Take off your jacket. Turn around. Hmm. You're a fine looking girl. Sit down. I see you trained for the ballet?
Tatiana: But, I grew an inch over the regulation height. And, so...
Rosa Klebb: And then you have had - three lovers?
Tatiana: What is the purpose of such an intimate question?
Rosa Klebb: You're *not* here to ask questions! You forget to whom you're speaking!

Rosa Klebb: Who can the Russians suspect, but the British. The cold war in Istanbul will not remain cold very much longer.
