Quotes

[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.

[Professor Dent tries to kill Bond, but his gun is out of bullets]

James Bond: That's a Smith & Wesson, and you've had your six.

[shoots Dent twice]

Dr. No: East, West, just points of the compass, each as stupid as the other.

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.

Miss Moneypenny: James! Where have you been? I've been searching all over London for you.

[Picks up phone]

Miss Moneypenny: 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 property.

Miss Moneypenny: Flattery will get you nowhere - but don't stop trying.

James Bond: Don't worry. I'm not supposed to be here either. Are you alone?

Honey Ryder: Stay where you are.

James Bond: I promise you, I won't steal your shells.

Honey Ryder: I promise you, you won't either.

[Bond moves closer. Honey pulls out her dagger]

Dr. No: [to Bond] I was curious to see what kind of man you were. I thought there may be even a place for you with SPECTRE.

James Bond: I'm flattered. I'd prefer the Revenge department. Of course, my first job would be finding the man who killed Strangways and Quarrel.

[Honey describes how she killed the man who had raped her]

James Bond: Well, it wouldn't do to make a habit of it.

James Bond: Now, don't worry, Quarrel. Everything's going to be fine.

Quarrel: You say so, Captain. Bottom part of where my belly used to be tells me different.

James Bond: For me, Crab Key's going to be a gentle relaxation.

Felix Leiter: From what? Dames?

James Bond: No, from being a clay pigeon.

Major Boothroyd: [to M, referring to Bond's Beretta] Nice and light... in a lady's handbag.

M: Any comment, 007?

James Bond: I disagree, sir. I've carried the Beretta for ten years, and I've never missed with it.

M: No, but it jameed 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]

M: 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.

Dr. No: [about his aquarium] The glass is convex, 10 inches thick, which accounts for the magnifying effect.

James Bond: Minnows pretending they're whales. Just like you on this island, Dr. No.

Dr. No: It depends, Mr. Bond, on which side of the glass you are.
