* ProlongedPrologue: Literally. The {{Cold Opening}}s are a Bond tradition, but this one is ''15 minutes'' long, during which Bond recovers money taken from another 00 agent, the money is returned to Elektra King's father, and then said money is rigged to blow him up, and Bond subsequently engages the cigar woman in a boat chase.

* ProlongedPrologue: Literally.To a great degree. The {{Cold Opening}}s are a Bond tradition, but this one is ''15 minutes'' long, during which Bond recovers money taken from another 00 agent, the money is returned to Elektra King's father, and then said money is rigged to blow him up, and Bond subsequently engages the cigar woman in a boat chase. The filmmakers originally intended for the "get the money" scene in Bilbao to be the cold opening followed by the dancing oil lady credits, but test audiences thought that scene was too short.

* MythologyGag: The ski scene is very similar to that on ''OHMSS'' 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]].

There's also Bond's method of dispatching a parahawk's parachute by tearing it with his ski; a stuntman from ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' actually almost died when one of his discarded skis passed dangerously close to ''his'' parachute.

* KnightInSourArmor: Bond notes that "Cold-blooded murder is a filthy business." As distasteful as it is to him, he'll do whatever it takes in to get the job done.

** Bond is so addicted to double entendres that he says one as he's being strangled to death. "One last screw"? Only James Bond would attempt to deliver a BondOneLiner for his own death.

* 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.

* 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.
