** Tiffany calls Bond Comics/{{Superman}}. Director Guy Hamilton declined directing ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' to direct ''Film/{{Superman}}'', although legal problems meant he had to drop out.

* RecycledScript: In a lot of ways, this book is a remake of ''Literature/LiveAndLetDie'' - Bond goes to America, battles a gang that specializes in smuggling some precious mineral, and entices a HighHeelFaceTurn from its sole female member.

** Charles Grey as a now fully-haired Blofeld, not helped by the film's decidedly more playful take on the character.

** Charles Grey as a now an unexplainably fully-haired Blofeld, not helped by with a "proper English genleman" voice rather comparable to M's and Q's though it can be argued those changes fit the film's decidedly more playful take on the character.

* NeverLiveItDown: Arguably the first in the Bond series to dive headfirst into fullblown campiness, which has been relentlessly parodied since its release.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Bond's final confrontation with Blofeld was meant to involve a lengthy chase scene, but had to be cut for cost reasons.

* MagnificentBastard: Blofeld made good use of decoys this time around. [[spoiler: He used not only one, but multiple decoys of himself and when Bond meets him and a decoy later in the film, not knowing which is which, he scares the cat and kills the one it runs into, but it turns out the cat was a decoy too. [[FridgeBrilliance The real cat wore a diamond collar]], [[RewatchBonus as seen in the intro]].]] Well played, Blofeld.

* FridgeBrilliance: The two fakes both refer to him as 007; the ''real'' Blofeld always calls him "Mr Bond". In fact, throughout the series, Blofeld nearly always refers to him as "Bond" (or some variation thereof).
* FridgeLogic:
** Bond uses a voice changing machine to intercept Blofeld's order to Bert Saxby to kill Willard Whyte. But then Saxby still shows up to do the job, making one wonder how he found out about the order. Since Blofeld noticed something odd about Saxby's voice, he may have called Saxby back, Saxby said he hadn't called Blofeld and Blofeld figured out what was going on. This is helped by the fact that he also moves up his plans by a day and leaves for the oil rig as soon as he can.
** Due to a deleted scene one is left to assume that Plenty O'Toole quite possibly had to return home ''without her clothes'' (see below).



* GeniusBonus: Bond's line, "[[AssShove Alimentary, my dear Leiter]]" almost didn't make it into the film. [[DontExplainTheJoke The line refers to the Alimentary Canal, another name for the Gastrointestinal Tract, which terminates in...well, you know what.]] Apparently, Albert R. Broccoli demanded that screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz remove the line for fear that nobody would get the joke.

** The sexual humiliation that Plenty endures in Bond's hotel room may not sit well with today's audiences either.
** "They tell me I have the body of Rock Hudson."
