* One for a ''Mook'' in a James Bond movie, of all people. During the ski chase, one of the Parahawks chasing Bond falls off a cliff. Bond then quips "See you back at the lodge" as he watches the Parahawk falls, only to see the Parahawk opens its spare parachute and rejoins the fight. Bond is not amused at all. A mere Mook denied James Bond himself his BondOneliner. Possibly the first time and the only time it happened.

** 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.

** The way Brosnan says "Family motto" sums up his portrayal of the character perfectly: a man who repeatedly ends up in ridiculous, painful situations all the time, but keeps going because [[KnightInSourArmour that's just who he is]]. The best part about it being his family's motto is the implication that ''everyone'' [[BadassFamily in the Bond family is like this]].

* 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.
