The coffin - it has your initials: J.B.
At the moment, rather him than me.
At least you've been saved the effort of removing him. Colonel Bouvar passed away in his sleep, so they tell me.
You sound disappointed you did not kill him yourself.
I am. Jacques Bouvar murdered two of my colleagues.

Out of Connery's Bond movies this one is my personal favorite. It has the best location, the best action, and the best women. Sure it also has lots of flaws, but I still really enjoy this one. SPECTRE has hijacked some nuclear weapons and is threatning to use them if they do not get what they want. So Bond has to find the missles and put a stop to SPECTRE's plans once again. Almost the entire movie takes place on a tropical island, much like Dr. No, but this one has a better plot and a great underwater fight scene at the end that make it a much better film than Dr. No. From beginning to end I find this one of the most enjoyable Bond flicks.
