* BrickJoke: The film opens with Q indicating that miniaturization is the way to go with their agent's equipment, using an (actually very practical) piece of radioactive lint as an example. Later in the film Bond has to crack a safe and in order to do so he needs to use a large and cumbersome piece of equipment the size of a big suitcase.

* InstrumentalThemeTune: Occurs because Music/JohnBarry didn't think the title could fit in a lyric--at least, not without coming off like Creator/GilbertAndSullivan.
** Admittedly, there aren't many words that rhyme with "Service". Besides "nervous."

Creator/GilbertAndSullivan. Later films simply TakeAThirdOption by not requiring the movie's title to be in its theme song if it's something extremely awkward to fit in song lyrics.

* SameLanguageDub: When Bond is passing as Sir Hilary, Hilary's actor, George Baker, is heard instead of Lazenby (in fact Baker's voice is heard so extensively during the Piz Gloria segment of the film he technically deserves credit as a James Bond actor). Also, Draco is dubbed (by David [=DeKeyser=]) since the actor had a strong Italian accent.
** Joanna Lumley, who played one of Blofeld's girls, reportedly dubbed some voices in different accents to complement some of her castmates' voices.

* AsideComment: In the opening scene, after JamesBond (Creator/GeorgeLazenby) rescues a woman from drowning and fights a group of {{mooks}}, the woman drives away. He faces the camera and says "This never happened to the other fella", a reference to the previous James Bond actor, Creator/SeanConnery.

The sixth ''Film/JamesBond'' film, starring Creator/GeorgeLazenby in his only appearance.[[note]]His contract was for 7 movies, but he left because his agent [[ItWillNeverCatchOn thought spy movies were getting outdated, believing hippie movies were the way to go]]. After a couple of hippie movie flops, Lazenby finally decided he had enough and fired him. Though, technically, while this was his only appearance in the official Bond movie series, Lazenby played Bond three times - the two others being a cameo appearance in the film ''The Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E.'' and an episode of ''Alfred Hitchcock Presents''.[[/note]]
