* Bond's plan for averting the Moonraker launch if they can't successfully redirect it away from London before it takes off. He's going to get Gala to safety, head out into the dangerously fume-filled silo under the rocket, and... [[StuffBlowingUp light himself a last cigarette.]] And for her part, Gala works out what he's planning, and given her chances of survival are slim anyway, and says if it comes to it, then they'll do it ''together''.

* Bond, M and the Minister of Defence walk in to Draxs' laboratory wearing gas masks and find it has been entirely refurbished with a "surprised" Drax waiting for them, utterly humiliating Bond in front of his bosses. MagnificentBastard indeed.

* Bond manages to survive getting thrown out of a plane without a parachute by fighting the villain in mid-air and stealing his. And note that this was 1979, meaning you're actually seeing a pair of stuntmen fighting in freefall with a cameraman falling beside them. It reportedly took almost 100 jumps to get everything.

Added DiffLines:

* The scene where Bond disables the station's gravity is truly impressive when you bear in mind this was filmed pre-CGI. The scene features the largest number of weightless actors ever filmed (on wires).

Added DiffLines:

* The effects. ''Holy shit'', the effects. Even nowadays, on the Blu-Ray version, those model shots and laser guns look damn good. If they're going to steal from ''Film/StarWars'', they at least stole one of the things ''Star Wars'' did right.
