Added DiffLines:

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Stacy and May Day look beautiful throughout the final action scene, no matter what happens. Particularly glaring with May Day, who gets completely soaked, yet her hair and makeup remain immaculate.

* MurdererPOV: At least two shots of Stacy's house make it clear that the bad guys are lurking in the bushes, watching her.

* BookEnds: For Roger Moore's entire run. His [[Film/LiveAndLetDie first outing]] had him crashing a wedding, and he does the same here.

* StockScream: The poor mook ThrownFromTheZeppelin right before he hits the water. This scream is frequently heard in all of the Moore-era Bond films at one point or another.

** Another butchered Wilhelm Scream can be heard when Zorin throws the KGB mook into the propeller of his oil pumping station near the midway point of the film.

* WhatMeasureIsAMook: After May Day bitterly pains over her henchmen being killed, Bond takes the time to look around at the cost in human life and states that Zorin betrayed a ''lot'' of people. One of the few times that Bond actually pauses to mourn the deaths of henchmen. Then again, most of the men who were killed weren't even henchmen. They were just working for the henchmen who were working for Zorin. All of May Day's girls were definitely henchwomen.

* IndyPloy: Zorin claims to be one: "Intuitive improvisation is the spirit of genius." Of course, given that he has two jerry cans full of gasoline with him at the time, Zorin is probably actually more of a XanatosSpeedChess kind of guy.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Creator/Rogerebert pointed out that Zorin's plan makes very little sense if you have any knowledge of the computer industry. [[spoiler: Destroying Silicone Valley would do very little to give him a monopoly on microchips, since those are generally manufactured overseas in places like Japan. Firms in Silicone Valley usually create tech that requires microchips, meaning Zorin is essentially ''[[WhatanIdiot killing his own customer base]]''.]]
