As Bond and Sanchez battle it out on the back of the oil tanker, now rolling out of control, it runs off the road and down a hillside. Bond crawls away from the truck, but Sanchez suddenly appears soaked in gasoline and wielding a machete. As Sanchez prepares to swing the machete, Bond slips from his pocket the engraved cigarette lighter presented to him by Felix and Della on their wedding day and asks, "Don't you want to know why?" Sanchez pauses mid-swing, noticing the engraving. Bond suddenly flicks the lighter toward Sanchez, and the flame ignites his gasoline-soaked clothes. On fire, Sanchez stumbles into the wrecked truck, blowing up both it and himself. Just then, Pam drives by in Bond's abandoned cab and gives Bond a ride back to the city. Several days later, while at a party being hosted by Lupe Lamora, Bond is seen in a brief phone conversation with Felix, who tells him that he's soon to be discharged from the hospital and informs Bond that M called, saying he may have a job for Bond (hinting that M wants him to return to 00 status). After kissing Bond for all his help, Lupe suggests that he stay there with her, but Bond excuses himself when he sees Pam run off in tears after witnessing their kiss. He follows Pam to the swimming pool and jumps in the water, pulling her in with him. In the final scene, after they've kissed, Pam asks "Why don't you wait until you're asked?" (echoing what he said in their first encounter after the fight at the Barrelhead Bar.) Bond replies with what she said at the time, "Well, why don't you ask me?" and they continue kissing.
