GoldenEye (1995) Poster


Judi Dench: M



  • James Bond : Are these pictures live?

    M : Unlike the American government, we prefer not to get our bad news from CNN.

  • M : You don't like me, Bond. You don't like my methods. You think I'm an accountant, a bean counter more interested in my numbers than your instincts.

    James Bond : The thought had occurred to me.

    M : Good, because I think you're a sexist, misogynist dinosaur. A relic of the Cold War, whose boyish charms, though wasted on me, obviously appealed to that young woman I sent out to evaluate you.

    James Bond : Point taken.

  • Bill Tanner : Seems your hunch was right, 007. It's too bad the Evil Queen of Numbers wouldn't let you play it...

    [M walks in] 

    M : You were saying?

    Bill Tanner : No, no, I was just... just um...

    M : Good. Because if I want sarcasm, Mr Tanner, I'll talk to my children, thank you very much.

  • M : [to Bond]  If you think for one moment I don't have the balls to send a man out to die, your instincts are dead wrong. I have no compunction about sending you to your death. But, I won't do it on a whim. Even with your cavalier attitude towards life.

  • M : Would you care for a drink?

    James Bond : Thank you. Your predecessor kept some cognac on the top...

    M : I prefer bourbon. Ice?

    James Bond : Yes.

  • M : I want you to find GoldenEye. Find who took it, what they plan to do with it, and stop it.

  • M : So - GoldenEye exists.

    James Bond : Yes.

  • M : What else do we know about the Janus syndicate?

    James Bond : Top flight arms dealers headquartered in St. Petersburg. First outfit to restock the Iraqis during the Gulf War. The head man's unreliably described. No photographs. The woman - Onatopp - is our only confirmed contact.

  • M : Bond - come back alive.

  • James Bond : What do you think the Russians are using the base for?

    Bill Tanner : Well, at one point we suspected Severnaya might be the ground station for a secret space-based weapons program called GoldenEye, but...

    M : Our statistical analysis saw they had neither the finance nor technology to implement it.

    James Bond : Numbers were never my strong suit.
