Dr. No (1962) Poster


Bernard Lee: M.



  • James Bond : Good evening, sir.

    M : It happens to be 3 a.m. When do you sleep, 007?

    James Bond : Never on the firm's time, sir.

  • Major Boothroyd : [to M, referring to Bond's Beretta]  Nice and light... in a lady's handbag.

    M : Any comment, 007?

    James Bond : I disagree, sir. I've carried the Beretta for ten years, and I've never missed with it.

    M : No, but it jammed on you last job, and you spent six months in hospital in consequence. When you carry a 00 number, you have a license to kill, not get killed. Furthermore, since I've been head of MI7

    [sic - MI6] 

    M : there's been a forty percent drop in casualties, and I want to keep it that way. From now on you carry the Walther... unless you'd rather return to standard intelligence duties.

    James Bond : No sir, I would not.

    M : [to Boothroyd]  Show him, Armourer.

    Major Boothroyd : [to Bond]  Walther PPK, 7.65 millimeter, with a delivery like a brick through a plate-glass window. The American CIA swear by them.

  • M : I'll have a set of background papers to take - delivered to you at the airport in a self-destructive bag. You can study them during the flight. I want to know what's happened to Strangways.
