* ActivationSequence: There's an elaborate sequence in which a lake in Cuba is drained to reveal that its entire basin is a satellite dish. Three structures that border the now-dry lake extend to towering heights to deploy the antenna array, with which the anarchists intend to transmit the "fire" command to an EMP satellite. Fortunately, Bond is on hand to screw up the device before the command is relayed.

* CuttingTheKnot: When Natalya spikes Boris to trace the new [=GoldenEye=] facility, Boris cuts the signal by tearing out all the boards for the mainframe. It doesn't quite work, as the trace goes on long enough for Natalya to narrow it down to Cuba and from there figure out the only place big enough to hide a dish of the necessary size.

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: German actor Gottfried John as General Ourumov doesn't really appear to be attempting a Russian accent, but fortunately he doesn't sound too obviously German so most English speaking viewers probably wouldn't notice. This is also the case with French actor Tcheky Karyo as Russian Defence Minister Dimitri Mishkin, but to be fair, it's probably not easy to speak in a language that's not your own and do a foreign accent at the same time.
