** There's one in note form, "He disagreed with something that ate him."", which was lifted from the original novel of ''Literature/LiveAndLetDie''. [[Film/LiveAndLetDie The film version]] also had David Hedison as Felix Leiter.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Bond delivers an epic one to M when the latter reprimands him for going against orders to avenge the Leiters, and refuses to let Bond continue with his effort. Even with his fellow agents prepared to kill him should he resist, it doesn't faze him and he promptly makes a fast getaway.
** Truman-Lodge and Heller both attempt this when Bond blows up the drug lab, the former being collected by Franz while the latter is murdered when he tries to make off with the Stingers.

** The climax features Bond climbing over, under, on top of and inside multiple moving trucks. Which [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk other famous action hero]] could ''that'' be referencing?

* TheEighties: Bond is a lone man-on-the-edge CowboyCop fighting a South American drug dealer who's bringing in wealthy Hong Kong businessmen to sell cocaine all over the world. Every car is boxy as hell, Pan-Am Airlines still exists, and one of the love interests has trendy short EightiesHair and a background as an army pilot in South American warzones. Bond himself is perilously close to having a mullet, the series' gore has never been higher, and the ending song is a synthesizer-backed love ballad.


Added DiffLines:

* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: Carefully averted. The filmmakers weren't sure if the USSR was still going to be around by the time the movie was finished, so they purposely crafted the plot around something completely unrelated to Communism.

** Bond casually admits to Sanchez that he's a former British agent, as it actually helps his cover as an assassin-for-hire (especially since he doesn't specify just how ''recently'' he'd been suspended). It also throws off any suspicions Sanchez had about him, even after he gets one of his men to profile Bond.
--> '''Informant:''' You're not going to believe who this guy is.
--> '''Sanchez:''' Former British agent.
--> '''Informant:''' How'd you know that?
--> '''Sanchez:''' Because I know things.
