* Bond's BatmanGambit where he forces Kamal to bid even higher for the Faberge egg at the auction, suspecting a connection to his fellow agent's murder when a duplicate of said egg was recovered. Having successfully forced Kamal's hand, Bond then makes clear his intent to blackmail Kamal when he ''switches the real egg with the duplicate''. Even M, who was shocked at Bond's actions seems mildly impressed just as Bond departs for India.

** And then Bond has the gall to say, just as Kamal's writing out a check, to say "I prefer cash."

** Meta CMOA for Roger Moore: this scene proves that HeReallyCanAct despite the comedic overtones of his entire 12 years as 007.

'''General Orlov''': Against whom?\\
'''Bond''': My God... of course. Our early-warning system will rule out the bomb having come from Russia or anywhere else. Everyone will assume incorrectly... that it was a American bomb triggered accidentally.\\

Added DiffLines:

* Orlov's first appearance where he announces his vision for invading Western Europe; Steven Berkoff plays the part of the LargeHam in all its glory.
** Followed up by General Gogol's impressive rejection of Orlov's warmongering, shooting down the mad general's zealous overconfidence.
* Bond stealing Orlov's car and driving on its ''rims'' across the border in pursuit of the train, jumping clear just before another train sends his ride flying.

** The fact that these women managed to take down an entire fortress full of goons using (Mostly) non-lethal means to take them all down.

-->'''Bond''': You can't be inviting a nuclear war. What happens when the US retaliates?\\
'''General Orlov''': Against whom?

to:

-->'''Bond''': -->'''Bond''': I am more concerned about an atomic bomb exploding on a US Air Force base in West Germany! You can't be inviting a nuclear war. What happens when the US retaliates?\\
'''General Orlov''': Against whom?whom?\\
'''Bond''': My God... of course. Our early-warning system will rule out the bomb having come from Russia or anywhere else. Everyone will assume incorrectly... that it was a American bomb triggered accidentally.\\
'''Orlov''': Yes, that would be the most plausible explanation.\\
'''Bond''': Europe and NATO will then insist on full nuclear disarmament... and leaving every border undefended for you and the Warsaw Pact to walk across at will!\\
'''Orlov''': You took the words right out of my mouth.\\
'''Bond''': And I suppose it doesn't matter a damn to you that thousands of innocent people will be killed in this little "accident" of yours?\\
'''Orlov''': Better than letting a handful of old men in Moscow bargain away our advantage in disarmament talks!
