* Bond's entire confession to Anya of his role in her lover's death. This discovery comes by pure chance during an otherwise casual conversation between the two agents and Bond, although never having seen Barsov's face quietly deduces that he must've been the one to end the Russian agent's life. Anya is vengeful and it's apparent to Bond that he now has a price on his head before she has even uttered her vow to kill him, but Bond owns up to all of it and simply explains that he and Barsov both understood what their line of work demands of both of them, and that he simply did what the moment demanded of him and that his encounter with Barsov was simply a grave misfortune.
** Even more impressive is how accepting Bond is of Anya's threat, quietly resigning himself to whatever fate may befall him later.

* The elaborate battle sequence inside the hollowed-out cargo ship, with Stromberg's forces going up against the combined efforts of American, Soviet and British submarine crews. With a lot of nameless sailors making [[HeroicSacrifice Heroic Sacrifices]] all over the place.

** 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.
