After XXX helps destroy the enemy sub that was attacking them, Bond asks how XXX knew about the controls. She says that she had stolen the plans for the Wet Nellie, 2 years prior. She suddenly knew at that point how the Wet Nellie worked despite knowing about the plans, yet it never crossed her mind beforehand to push any buttons when a Killer Motor Cycle, A Car full of goons (Jaws) & a helicopter (Naomi) was chasing them.

Fabulous nonsense, superior to all the previous Roger Moore Bonds, with an unforgettable villain
James Bond (Roger Moore) teams with a sexy Russian agent (Barbara Bach) to stop a web-fingered megalomaniac (Curd Jürgens) from destroying the world and rebuilding it as a new Atlantis.
"The Spy Who Loved Me" is fabulous nonsense, superior to all the previous Roger Moore Bonds, even with the obvious model shots, process shots and the occasionally corny background music by Marvin Hamlisch, who also wrote the music for the theme song, "Nobody Does It Better." (It's popular, but you can have it.) The gadgets, sets, stunts and one-liners are more outrageous than ever. Jürgens makes a good villain, and so does the shark he unleashes on traitors; but the bad guy everyone remembers is Jaws—not another shark, but a metal-mouthed giant played by Richard Kiel. He is Jürgens's best henchman—not good enough to outmatch Bond, but enough to survive for the next Bond adventure.
