Dr. No: The Americans are fools. I offered my services; they refused. So did the East. Now they can both pay for their mistake.

Dr. No: [to Bond] I was curious to see what kind of man you were. I thought there may be even a place for you with SPECTRE.

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.

Dr. No: [about his aquarium] The glass is convex, 10 inches thick, which accounts for the magnifying effect.

James Bond: Minnows pretending they're whales. Just like you on this island, Dr. No.

Dr. No: It depends, Mr. Bond, on which side of the glass you are.

Miss Taro: [on the phone] Hello? Oh, Mr. Bond, I was thinking, why don't you collect me at my apartment. It's lovely up here in the mountains. Nice and cool. All right, you leave the Port Royal Road out of Kingston. Then, along the Winthrop Road, until you get to the cement factory. Then you turn left. Follow the road up the hill. Down the other side. And two miles further on, on the left, Magenta Drive 2 - 3. I'll be waiting for you.
