** Plenty O'Toole having dinner with Bond, ending with Plenty inviting herself to Bond's apartment, where she struts her stuff once she's been stripped down to her bare essentials... only to have a NakedFreakOut when the "pervert's convention" throws her out the window.
** After being thrown out the window Plenty returns to Bond's apartment soaking wet and wearing nothing but a white ModestyTowel to hide her shame in the hopes of retrieving her clothes and to see what has become of Bond. After seeing him having sex with Tiffany an angry Plenty almost leaves... but not before going through Tiffany's purse and finding her address. It doesn't work out well for her...

** Maibaum may have thought the eventual oil rig finale a poor substitute, but it was originally intended to be much more spectacular. Armed frogmen would jump from the helicopters into the sea and attach limpet mines to the rig's legs (this explains why frogmen appear on the movie's poster). Blofeld would have escaped in his BathoSub and Bond would have pursued him hanging from a weather balloon. The chase would have then continued across a salt mine with the two mortal enemies scrambling over the pure white hills of salt before Blofeld would fall to his death in a salt granulator. Permission was not granted by the owners of the salt mine. It also made the sequence too long.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: The codes that control the satellite are stored on a tape cassette that protrudes prominently in Tiffany's bikini bottom. Today, a flash drive would've been more discrete, though there'd still be the communication SNAFU between Bond and Tiffany

* YouLookFamiliar: Charles Gray (Blofeld) earlier played a British agent in ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice''. Ironically, said agent is murdered by SPECTRE, so he is basically playing the man ultimately responsible for his own death.
