* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When Dr. Christmas Jones gives Bond her name, she says "Don't make any jokes, I've heard them all". Bond replies with "No, I don't know any 'doctor' jokes." Jones looks up at him in a way that suggests that she hasn't heard ''that'' one before, and is at least slightly impressed by his quick and original wit.

* AllThereInTheScript: In the script, it is explained that Sir Robert King inherited the oil fortune from his wife's family. Her father had no male heirs so he left the property to his son-in-law.

Added DiffLines:

* To the books. In the film, Bond claims, in decently fluent Russian, to have studied at Oxford. In the books, Ian Fleming states that Bond was an Oxford graduate, and had a First in Oriental Languages.

* BadBoss: Renard, like many villains has no qualms about killing his own henchmen and allies if their incompetence or failures interfere with his plans.

* MythologyGag: The design of Elektra's skit suit is very similar to Tracy's. [[spoiler: Which makes perfect sense, as she's initially presented as a Tracy replacement, before turning out to be one for BLOFELD]].

* MagicCountdown: Renard activates a bomb with a five-second timer. Bond spends 4.5 of these seconds on a reaction shot and then another 30 seconds escaping during the remaining .5 before it finally goes off.

Added DiffLines:

* NoDelaysForTheWicked: Averted. Renard has only a small band of loyal terrorists with him, rather than (as usual in Bond films) the well-funded personal army of a megalomaniacal multi-billionaire. At one point, Arkov complains to him about 4 vehicles destroyed by Bond in a preceding chase scene; they were rented and the rental company is going to be pissed. Roger Ebert even cited this little scene in his review of the movie while musing about where the villains in movies manage to get all their logistics so tidily.

* BavarianFireDrill: Renard kills a nuclear physicist and arranges to have Davidov replace him. Bond kills and replaces ''him'' and successfully bluffs his way past Renard's men and the guards at the nuclear disarmament site they travel too. Unfortunately, Dr. Jones who really ''is'' a nuclear physicist is able to see through his act.


Added DiffLines:

** Bond kills Davidov and throws him into the nearest pit before taking his place. Upon being asked where Davidov is "Buried with work".
