James Bond: Expecting Davidov? He caught a bullet instead of the plane. Get off. Keep your mouth shut.

Renard: You can't kill me. I'm already dead.

James Bond: Not dead enough for me.

Renard: You could show a little gratitude. I did spare your life at the banker's office. That's right. I couldn't you. You were working for me. You delivered the money, killed King and now you brought me the plane.

James Bond: What's your plan for the bomb?

Renard: You first. Or could it be you don't have a plan?

James Bond: That bomb will never leave this room.

Renard: Neither will you.

[Renard and Bond pause for a moment. At that time, the bomb is being hoisted out of the silo]

Renard: How sad... to be threatened by a man who can't grasp what he's involved in.

James Bond: Revenge is not hard to fathom for a man who believes in nothing.

Renard: And what do you believe in? Preservation of Capital?

[Renard pulls away from Bond]

Renard: Go ahead. Shoot me. I welcome it. My men will hear the shot and kill you.

James Bond: And the firefight will bring down half the army from above.

Renard: But when a certain phone call isn't made in twenty minutes, Elektra dies.

James Bond: You're bluffing.

Renard: She's beautiful isn't she? You should have had her before, when she was innocent. How does it feel to know that I broke her in for you?

[Bond gets angry and pistol-whips Renard across the forehead. Renard falls to the ground]

James Bond: [as the puts the silencer on his P99] I usually hate killing an unarmed man. Cold-blooded murder is a filthy business.

Renard: A man tires of being executed.

James Bond: But in your case, I feel nothing just like you.

Renard: But then again, there's no point living if you can't feel alive?

James Bond: Huh?

[Colonel Akakievich and Christmas storm in]

Colonel Akakievich: [to Bond] Hey! Drop the gun!

James Bond: Keep away, Colonel!

Dr. Christmas Jones: He's an imposter. Doctor Arkov is sixty-three years old.

James Bond: [about Renard and his men] This is your imposter, along with the men outside in the plane. They're stealing the bomb.

[Colonel Akakievich picks up an rifle and loads it]

Colonel Akakievich: I said drop it!

[Bond drops the PPK. Renard gets up off the floor]

Colonel Akakievich: [to Bond] On your knees!

[One of Renard's men removes a card from the bomb]

Renard: [Speaks Russian] Well done.

[about Bond]

Renard: He would have killed us all.

[Takes a photograph from Christams's hand]

Renard: This is Peter?

Dr. Christmas Jones: Yeah, but he's no atomic scientist.

Renard: [to Akakievich] I suppose you were the one who let him down.

[Renard shoves the photograph at Akakievich and walks towards Bond]

Renard: [to Bond] You had me. But i know you couldn't...

[Renard squeezes Bond's left shoulder. Bond groans with pain]

Renard: ...shoulder the responsibility.

[Renard lets go of Bond's shoulder and starts walking towards the silo entrance]

Renard: [to Akakievich] Now, without any further interruptions, lets proceed.

Colonel Akakievich: Nyet! There are too many new faces around here, including yours. The bomb doesn't move until I am satisfied.

[to the terrorists]

Colonel Akakievich: Hey, all of you, to the surface, now!

[Renard's men open fire at Akakievich's men]

James Bond: Molly, I need a clean build of health, you have to clear me for duty.

Dr. Molly Warmflash: James, I wouldn't really...

James Bond: Not at all.

Dr. Molly Warmflash: Practical, smart?

James Bond: Well let's just, skirt the usual, shall we?

Dr. Molly Warmflash: [start kissing] You'd have to promise to call me

[squeezes his shoulder that has been injured]

[Bond and Christmas emerge from the ruptured pipeline]

James Bond: [to Christmas as she emerges from the pipeline] Come on, give me your hand. Jump, jump, jump.

Dr. Christmas Jones: Do you wanna explain why you did that? I could have stopped that bomb! You almost killed us!

James Bond: I DID kill us! She thinks we're dead and she thinks she got away with it!

Dr. Christmas Jones: Do you wanna put that in English for those of us who don't speak spy. Who's she?

James Bond: Elektra King.

Dr. Christmas Jones: Well, why would she blow up her own pipeline?

James Bond: It makes her look innocent. The explosion covers up the theft of the plutonium. And they make it look like a terrorist attack.

Dr. Christmas Jones: [takes a tin of plutonium out of her bag] But why leave this half?

James Bond: So there's enough to spread around to cover up for the part that they did take

Dr. Christmas Jones: But what are they gonna do with the other half? Its not enough to make a nuclear bomb.

James Bond: You're the scientist. You tell me?

Dr. Christmas Jones: I don't know. But the world's greatest terrorist running around with 6 kilos of weapons-grade plutonium can't be good. I have to get it back. Or somebody's gonna have my ass.

James Bond: First things first.

[talks into the two-way radio attatched to his belt]

James Bond: Bond to Robinson, do you copy?

Dr. Christmas Jones: By the way, before we go any further, I just want to know. What's the story with you and Elektra?

James Bond: We're stictly plutonic, now.

[into two-way]

James Bond: Bond to Robinson, copy?

James Bond: [to Chrismas] What's your story? What are you doing here in Kazakhstan?

Dr. Christmas Jones: Avoiding those kind of questions just like you.

Robinson: [from two way] I read you, Double-Oh-Seven. Red Alert. M is missing with Elektra, three men down. Await instructions. Out.

Dr. Christmas Jones: What do we do now?

James Bond: There's one critical element here I may have overlooked.

Dr. Christmas Jones: What, more plutonium?

James Bond: No. Beluga caviar.

[after M arrived at the pipleine control centre, Bond and M go into a nearby room]

M: I Want an update. Where do we stand?

James Bond: [giving M the locator card] One of Renard's men removed a locator card from the bomb, so we can't track it. But...

M: [cutting Bond off] But what?

James Bond: With all due respect, I don't think you should be here.

M: May I remind you that YOU'RE the reason I'm here, Double-Oh-Seven. You disobeyed a direct order and left that girl alone.

James Bond: Perhaps that girl isn't as innocent as you think.

M: What are you saying?

James Bond: Supposed the inside man, the one who switched King's lapel pin, turned out to be an inside woman.

[M pauses for a moment]

M: She kills her father and attacks her own pipeline? Why? To what end?

James Bond: I don't know. Yet.

[Zukovzky fixes the "Zukovsky's Finest" logo on his office door]

Zukovsky: There's nothing in this place straight.

[Zukovsky opens the door and is shocked to see Christmas sitting on a couch in his office]

Zukovsky: Who are you, and how did you get in? I'll call security and congratulate them. Drink?

[the office door moves back, and Bond appears holding a guy at gunpoint]

Zukovsky: Can't you say a hello, like a normal person.

James Bond: [to guy] Get lost!

[the guy heads moves towards the door, and Bond grabs him by the shirt collar]

James Bond: [to guy] No, no, no down the back!

[to Zukovsky]

James Bond: What's your business with Elektra King?

Zukovsky: I though you were the one giving her the business.

[Bond points his gun at Zukovsky and walks towards him. Zukovsky walks backwards towards the wall]

James Bond: She drops a million dollars in your casino and you don't even blink an eye! What's she paying you off for?

Zukovsky: [to Chistmas] You know, a relationship with a man like that, I wouldn't bet on it.

[Bond tackles Zukovsky and shoves him back into a wall-mounted shelf full of caviar. At that moment, the sound of helicopters surround the skies over the caviar factory]

Zukovsky: Five thousand dollars of Beluga, ruined!

James Bond: That's nothing compared to what a twenty megaton nuclear bomb can do!

Zukovsky: What are you talking about?

Dr. Christmas Jones: We had a nuclear bomb stolen this morning!

James Bond: Renard and Elektra King are working together!

Zukovsky: I didn't know!

[Elektra escorts Renard to a cell in Maiden's Tower where M is being held captive]

Elektra King: [to Renard as she announces that she has captured M for him] Your present, courtesy of the late Mr. Bond.

Renard: My executioner.

M: Overpraise, I'm afraid. But my people will finish the job.

Elektra King: Your people? Your people will leave you here to rot. Just like you left me- you and my father.

M: [Getting up from a bench in the cell and walking towards the cell bars] Your father wasn't...

Elektra King: [Interrupting M] MY FATHER WAS NOTHING! His kingdom he stole from my mother, the kingdom I will rightly take back.

[Elektra walks towards the cell door and leaves. Renard closes the door behind her and walks towards M]

M: I hope you're proud of what you did to her.

Renard: I'm afraid it is you who deserve credit. When I took her, she was promise itself. And then you left her at the mercy of a man like me. You ruined her. For what? To get to me? She's worth fifty of me.

M: For once, I agree with you.

Renard: Yes. And now we also share a common fate. You will die along with everyone in the city.

[Renard turns his back and walks towards a table with junk surrounding it]

Renard: Along with the bright, starry, oil driven future of the West.

[Renard reaches for an alarm clock and holds it in his hands]

Renard: Since you sent your men to kill me, I've been watching time tick slowly away, marching towards my own death. Now you can have the same pleasure.

[Renard picks up a stool and totes them towards M's cell. He lays the alarm clock on top of the stool points at it]

Renard: Watch these hands, M. By noon tomorrow, your time is up. And I guarantee you, I will not miss.
