* [[TheDragon Necros]] successfully infiltrates an [=MI5=] safehouse by dressing up as a milkman. He proceeds to have a ''brutal'' fight with an [=MI5=] RedShirt, then uses a radio handset, adjusting his voice subtly, to warn everybody outside of a (false) gas leak. With the help of milk bottle grenades, he effortlessly kidnaps the target and escapes in plain sight by slightly changing his outfit to resemble a paramedic. Magnificent. While his theme music triumphantly blares in the background.

** The [[CoolCar Aston Martin V8]] that Bond drives in this film is awesome in a meta sense as well as its general appearance - it was the first Aston Martin that Bond had driven on screen since Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService.

Also, the original car - not the "winterised" version - was owned by the man who secured the new endorsement deal: Victor Gauntlett, then-CEO of Aston Martin Lagonda.

** Kara going singlehandedly after the convoy Bond is pinned down in was awesome enough for Shah's men to glare him into following, as he growls "Women!"
