*** In ''[=GoldenEye=]'', M makes a remark about how unlike the American government, the British government prefers not to get its bad news from CNN. In the North American and British releases, Bond learns of the MI6 bombing via a CNN newscast.

** Bond flirts with every woman he meets, but also quips to Silva while the villain suggestively touches him.(Although he’s almost certainly referring to what Le Chiffre did to him, in ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' so while He hits that tone to taunt Silva he likely doesn’t have flirting in mind.)

** Another name of hydrogen cyanide is "prussic acid", so this may be the HollywoodAcid trope at work. [[DidNotDoTheResearch However prussic acid is nowhere near as corrosive as depicted]].

** Q all but cites this trope when he tells Bond that Q branch doesn't tend to go in for "[[MythologyGag exploding]] [[Film/GoldenEye pens]]" anymore, after giving 007 two practical gadgets: a homing beacon radio and a personalized pistol [[Film/LicenceToKill coded so that only he can fire it]].
