* Bond and Kara crossing the Austrian border on a ''cello case''.
* [[TheDragon Necros]] successfully infiltrates an [=MI5=] safehouse by dressing up as a milkman. He proceeds to have a ''brutal'' fight with an [=MI5=] RedShirt, then uses a radio handset, adjusting his voice subtly, to warn everybody outside of a (false) gas leak. With the help of milk bottle grenades, he effortlessly kidnaps the target and escapes in plain sight by slightly changing his outfit to resemble a paramedic. Magnificent. While his theme music triumphantly blares in the background.
** Made even better by the fact that it's only one part of one of the best {{Evil Plan}}s in Bond movie history.
** That RedShirt himself is a Crowning Moment Of Awesome. A somewhat unimposing-looking, skinny middle-aged chap (presumably played by a veteran stuntman) who nonetheless almost succeeds in fighting the much younger, bigger and stronger TheDragon to a standstill. Hell, from the looks of things, Necros didn't even manage to kill the guy. Give that guy his own movie series!
* Bond having a fistfight with [[TheDragon Necros]] while hanging out the back of a cargo plane in midflight. ''While a time bomb is counting down.'' Yikes.
** And ''then'' using the bomb to take out a Soviet patrol pursuing Shah's men, ''then'' bailing out of the plane ''in a jeep'' seconds before it crashes...and ''then'' knowing a good restaurant in Karachi.
* Kamran Shah and his followers' [[BigDamnHeroes all-out assault on the Soviet airbase]] would be awesome... except that they're [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of ''[[LaResistance the Taliban]]''. How... very awkward.
** Except not. The Taliban weren't militarily active until the early 1990s.
*** The Taliban are an offshoot of the Mujahideen from the movie, and the two groups were at odds in the 90s - so much so that the remaining Mujahideen groups allied themselves with the US to get rid of the Taliban. So yeah, unfortunate, but not as bad as you might think.
**** The Taliban did not exist until 1994. The Mujahadeen can hardly be expies.
** Kara going singlehandedly after the convoy Bond is pinned down in was awesome enough for Shah's men to glare him into following, as he growls "Women!"
* The Gilbraltar training exercise that opens the film. One of the most action-packed openings of a Bond movie ever (and of the few to directly tie into the plot of the movie), culminating in Bond driving an explosives-laden Land Rover off the mountainside (with screaming Mook left inside), [[OutRunTheFireBall parachuting out before it explodes]], and then landing his parachute on top of a passing yacht where a bored sexy heiress yearning to bump into a "Real Man" is waiting with a chilled bottle of champagne.
-->'''Bond:''' (using the heiress' phone) Exercise Control, 007 here. I'll report in an hour.
-->'''Linda:''' (offering a glass) Won't you join me?
-->'''Bond:''' (thinks it over) [[BondOneLiner Better make that two]].
* Pushkin gets one of his own at the end, when he tells Koskov he's going to be sent back to Russia. Koskov is pleased, til Pushkin growls, "[[DeadlyEuphemism In the diplomatic bag.]]"
* The CarChase. Every time a Bond film does a gadget-laden car chase right, it is awesome. This is one of those times.
** The [[CoolCar Aston Martin V8]] that Bond drives in this film is awesome in a meta sense as well as its general appearance - it was the first Aston Martin that Bond had driven on screen since Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService.
