Quotes

Sir Donald Munger: Tell me, Commander, how far does your expertise extend into the field of diamonds?

James Bond: Well, hardest substance found in nature, they cut glass, suggests marriage, I suppose it replaced the dog as the girl's best friend. That's about it.

M: Refreshing to hear that there is one subject you're not an expert on!

Blofeld: The satellite is at present over... Kansas. Well, if we destroy Kansas the world may not hear about it for years. Perhaps New York, with all that smut and traffic... might give them a chance for a fresh start. Washington, DC. Perfect. Since we have not heard from them, *they* will hear from us.

James Bond: Dead. Supposed to be you. The next link in the "pipeline".

Tiffany Case: What are you talking about?

James Bond: Poor Plenty must have stumbled in here looking for you.

Tiffany Case: I don't believe you!

James Bond: A dentist is dead in South Africa. That little old lady in Amsterdam. Shady got his last night. They've missed me once. And you're next. Now, who's your connection?

Tiffany Case: You sound like a cop to me...

[Slaps her]

James Bond: Who's your connection?

Tiffany Case: All I know, his voice is on a phone. They got me this place and told me to wait for further instructions.

[Bond tastes the Mouton Rothschild wine served]

James Bond: The wine is quite excellent. Although for such a grand meal I would have expected a claret.

Mr. Wint: But of course. Unfortunately our cellar is poorly stocked with clarets.

James Bond: Mouton Rothschild IS a claret. And, I've smelled that aftershave before, and both times - I've smelled a rat.

Plenty O'Toole: Oh, how pretty, what a super place you have!

James Bond: Mmm...

[Plenty kisses him; Bond unzips her purple satin dress and it falls from her, leaving her almost completely naked except for her purple high heels and her transparent pink panties]

[she walks into the bedroom]

James Bond: [Bond picks up her dress and tosses it onto a couch. He turns on a lamp and finds a goon pointing a gun at him] Good evening.

[other lights come on, revealing another goon, also pointing a gun at him]

James Bond: Well, I'm afraid you've caught me with more than my hands up.

Plenty O'Toole: [being forced out of the bedroom by a third goon, her arms folded across her chest protectively] Hey, what the hell is this? A pervert's convention or something?

[the other goons come over and pick her up, carrying her over to the window]

Plenty O'Toole: Now listen, you can't do this to me! Stop that! I've got friends in this town!

Tiffany Case: Is he married?
