A View to a Kill (1985)
Robert Brown: M
[Bond is released from jail in Paris for violating the Napoleonic Code]
M : [to Bond] May I remind you that this operation was to be conducted discreetly. All it took was six million Francs in damages and penalties for violating most of the Napoleonic Code.
James Bond : Well, under the circumstances, sir, I thought it MORE IMPORTANT to identify the assassin.
M : What did you learn from Aubergine before his untimely demise?
James Bond : [to M] Well, only that Zorin is having a thoroughbred sale at his stud farm not far from here. I think I should be there.
James Bond : Can you help me with that, Sir Godfrey?
Sir Godfrey Tibbett : It may be possible to arrange an invitation. It's a bit short notice, but I might just be able to squeeze you in, Bond.
James Bond : [to Tibbett] Thank you, sir.
M : You have exactly 35 minutes to get properly dressed, 007.
[Bond checks the tie on his suit]
General Anatol Gogol : [Bond has just received the Order of Lenin from General Gogol] The order of Lenin, for Comrade Bond. The first ever non-Soviet citizen to receive this award.
M : I'd thought the KGB would have celebrated if Silicon Valley had been destroyed.
General Anatol Gogol : On the contrary, Admiral, where would Russian research be without it?
M : Now that we're all here, you can get on with the briefing, Q.
Q : Very good, sir. Gentlemen, a silicon integrated circuit. The essential part of all modern computers.
M : No lecture, Q. We're all aware of the usefulness of the microchip.
Q : Well, now, until recently, all microchips were susceptible to damage from the intense magnetic pulse of a nuclear explosion.
M : Magnetic pulse?
James Bond : Yes, Minister. I burst in outer space over the UK and everything with a microchip in it, from, well, the modern toaster to the most sophisticated computers in our defense systems would we rendered absolutely useless.
James Bond : With the cane, is that Max Zorin?
M : Yes. Born in Dresden. Fled from East Germany in the 60s. Changed passport. Speaks at least five languages, no accent. Now, the talk of the city and the bourse.
James Bond : The old rags to riches story.
M : He made his first fortune in oil and gas, James. Now, second in electronics and high tech.
