** Made doubly awesome by the fact that no stage in existence at the time was big enough to shoot the sequence - so they sacked up and fucking [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/007_Stage built one]]. To this day it remains Europe's largest stage, and has been used in hundreds of productions besides the Bond films.

** According to the documentary, ''Everything or Nothing'', this was the moment that Bond changed from a successful media property that happened to be British, to a national British icon.

* Skiing ''off a cliff'', holding the audience in suspense for several seconds, then opening the parachute. In the colors of the Union Jack. Nowadays BASE jumping is seen everywhere, but when this movie came out, ''no one'' saw it coming. There are audiences who started applauding at that. Stuntman Rick Sylvester deserves special mention, since he was the guy who actually traveled to Baffin Island and skied off the mountain.

* Bond disarming a nuclear missile with what's essentially the world's most high stakes game of Operation. It's really amazing how much suspense the sequence generates even though everyone goes in knowing there's no way he can actually fail.

* Stromberg's CoolBoat freaking opening up and ''swallowing three submarines.'' Also a meta awesome moment, since they had to build the biggest sound stage in the world to properly convey the epicness.

** The opening credits sequence, coming off of that, beautifully underscores one very important fact: even after several stumbles throughout the franchise's history, at the end of the day, Nobody Does It Better than Bond.
