Draco: My apologies for the way you were brought here. I wasn't sure you'd accept a *formal* invitation.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Merry Christmas, 007.

James Bond: [as Hillary Bray] I'm Sir Hillary Bray.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: No no no, Mr. Bond. Respectable baronets from the College of Heralds do "not" seduce female patients in clinics. On the other hand, they do get their professional details... "right". The De Bleauchamps tombs are "not" in the Augsburg Cathedral as you said, but in the Ste. Anna Kirch. Sir Hillary Bray would have known!

[Bond looks down and sighs, finally aware that he has been made]

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: [beat] Small slip. It takes more than a few props to turn 007 into a Herald.

[breaks Bond's glasses]

James Bond: [normal voice] It'll take more than cutting off your earlobes, Blofeld, to turn you into a Count.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: I may yet suprise you. But I'm afraid you have no more suprises left for me. I know all about your mission, Mr. Bond.

[Blofeld throws Campbell's mountain climbing equipment at the floor]

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Your colleague! Such a keen climber, and a brilliant conversationalist... before he left us.

James Bond: You realize that he reported where I am.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Oh, I doubt that. In any case, no one is coming to your rescue, Mr. Bond. In a few short hours, the United Nations will receive a Yultide greeting. The information that I now possess the scientific means to control, or to destroy, the economy of the whole world. People will have more important things to deal with than you.

Sir Hilary Bray: Our methods are very exacting. We never like to speak until we're *absolutely* certain that there can be no possibility of error on our side or... forgery on anyone else's.

James Bond: I hope I can live up to your high standards.

[first lines]

Q: I've been saying for years, sir, that our special equipment is obsolete. And now, computer analysis reveals an entirely new approach: miniaturization. For instance, radioactive lint. When placed in an opponent's pockets, the anti-personnel and location fix seems fairly obvious.

M: What we want is a location fix on 007.

Tracy: Why do you persist in rescuing me, Mr. Bond?

James Bond: It's becoming quite a habit, isn't it, Contessa Teresa?

Tracy: Teresa was a Saint; I'm known as Tracy.

James Bond: Well, Tracy, next time play it safe and stand on 5.

Tracy: People who want to stay *alive* play it safe.

James Bond: Please, stay alive! At least for tonight.

Tracy: [Throws down her hotel room key and gets up to leave] Come later.

[Draco proposes that Bond marries his daughter]

James Bond: I find her fascinating. But, she needs a psychiatrist, not me.

Draco: [abruptly] What she needs is a man... to *dominate* her! To make love to her enough to make her love him! A man like you!

James Bond: This department owes her a *debt*. She saved my life.

M: Operation Bedlam is DEAD! Do you understand, 007?

James Bond: Yes, Sir. I understand.

[Bond has realized what Blofeld is really up to]

James Bond: Allergy vaccines? Bacteria. Bacteriological Warfare.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: With a difference. Our big breakthrough since last summer has been the confection of a certain... Virus Omega.

James Bond: Infertility.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: TOTAL Infertility! In plants and animals. Not just disease in a few herds, Mr. Bond. Or the loss of a single crop. But the destruction of a whole strain. Forever! Throughout an entire continent. If my demands are not met, I shall proceed with the systematic extinction of whole species of cereals and livestock all over the world!

[Blofeld wants to share his life with Tracy]

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Now, if you're very, very nice to me. I could make you my Countess.

Tracy: But I'm already a Countess.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Whereas if you displease me, I can promise you a very *different* estate.

Moneypenny: That was a quick conference. How do you expect a girl to keep herself alluring...

James Bond: Take a memo, please, Moneypenny.

Moneypenny: Ready, James.

James Bond: Sir, I have the honor to request you will accept my resignation, effective forthwith.

Moneypenny: Resignation from what?

James Bond: Her Majesty's Secret Service. And kindly present it to that monument in there.

James Bond: But, sir, Blofeld's something of a must with me.

M: You've had two years to run him down.

James Bond: Does this mean you've lost confidence in me?

M: I'm well aware of your talents, 007. But Licensed to Kill is *useless* - unless one can set up a target. I'll find you a more suitable assignment. That's all.
