At the climax of The Living Daylights, Bond and Russian killer Necros clobber each other while clinging to a net full of bagged drugs that has spilled out the back of a military transport plane flying high in the sky. Devoid of digital trickery, it's one of the most breathtaking fight scenes ever filmed.
IT'S NOT BUSINESS, JUST PERSONAL
In the finale to Goldeneye, Alec Trevelyan, the treacherous 006, who sold out his country and abandoned his friendship with Bond, clings to 007's hand for dear life, high up on a massive satellite dish. Alex sneers, "For England, James?" "No," snarls Bond before dropping him, "for me."
While Dr. No had its share of intrigue and clever quips, it is most famous for the introduction of Honey Ryder, the seashell-collecting snorkeler (and first official Bond girl) played by goddess Ursula Andress.
ALL THAT GLITTERS…
Throughout Goldfinger, Bond matches wits more than muscle with the titular villain. But the gold-obsessed tycoon knows how to make an impression. When Bond steals his girlfriend, Goldfinger has her killed: She's sprayed - and hence, suffocated - with gold paint. And when 007 bests him in a game of golf, Goldfinger offers a warning through his henchman Oddjob, who tosses his bowler hat at a statue … and decapitates it.
Bond: "Do you expect me to talk?"
Goldfinger: "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!"
Kamal Khan (to Bond): “You have a nasty habit … of surviving.”
Diamonds Are Forever
Bond (to Tiffany Case): “That’s quite a nice little nothing you’re almost wearing. I approve.”
The Man with the Golden Gun
Bond: “Who’d want to put a contract on me?”
M: “Jealous husbands! Outraged chefs! Humiliated tailors! The list is endless!”
