Added DiffLines:

** Christmas is actually a pretty adequate character who suffers far more from being played by a terrible actress--she never waits for Bond to rescue her in the nuclear site and rigs a mechanism herself, and mostly holds her own during the action sequences. Not once does she turn into any kind of dimwitted ScreamingWoman.

* Bond's final confrontation with Elektra, who he demands call off Renard from triggering the nuclear attack. He has her cornered with nowhere to go, but she remains confident that Bond, now visibly impatient, cannot bring himself to kill her. Thus, this exchange.

* Renard's first scene. He's clearly a master of the BlofeldPloy.
* Renard's escape from the test site - Bond shoots at him, but is foiled by the bulletproof glass. Renard's nonchalance sells it.
--> "No hard feelings, Mister Bond, but we're even. Soon, you'll feel nothing at all".
--> The elevator goes up as Renard points down to a bomb that's just started ticking.
* Probably the best use of the catchprase ever:
--> Christmas: "So you're a British spy. Do you have a name?"
--> Bond: "The name's Bond. (Elevator shoots upwards). James Bond".
