Funny: The Living Daylights
  • Rosika Miklos's scene fake-seducing her superior.
    Rosika Miklos: What kind of girl do you think I am?!
  • The end of the action opening:
    Linda: It's all so boring here, Margo. There's nothing but playboys and tennis pros. If only I could find a Real Man.
    (with Bond dropping in by parachute in 3... 2... 1...)
  • The cello problem.
    Kara: We must go back to get my cello!
    Bond: No. Way.
    (Gilligan Cut to James alone in the car at the conservatory)
    Bond: Why couldn't you have learned the violin?
    • Later, when Bond's car is destroyed, they're sledding down the hill on the cello case. At one point Bond quips "Glad I insisted you brought that cello".
    • "We have nothing to declare!" "Just this cello!"
  • Kara Milovy, worst pilot EVER! Damn, did James really have to be the one to tell you you're about to crash into a canyon wall?!
  • After slicing a car with a laser:
    Kara: What was that?
    Bond: (with serious tone) Salt corrosion.
  • This exchange, before Koskov is stuffed into a capsule in order to be smuggled into Austria:
    Bond: Relax, Georgi. Our engineers have spent months perfecting this.
    Koskov: How many times have you done this before?
    Bond: You're the first!
    Koskov: No! *gets stuffed inside*
  • Bond is instructed to bring a hamper from Harrods for Koskov at the safe house. As Koskov is gleefully emptying it, M is surprised that the brand of champagne is one that wasn't on the list:
    Bond: The brand on the list was rather questionable, sir. I took the liberty of choosing something else.
    (M gives Bond a Death Glare, implying that he was the one who chose the original item)
  • Upon learning how to detonate his key ring explosive, Bond hangs it up on Q's gas mask and prepares to begin the activation whistle just to screw with him.
    • At the end of the sequence, Q asks a random tech to lie down in a couch, which immediately flips the tech under the cushions and gives Q a free space to sit.
  • When captured by Necros and Koskov, Bond is given a fake ID as a medical patient: Jerry Bondov.
  • Kamran Shah accompanied by his Afghan rebels showing up at Kara's concert, they'd have got there sooner, but had some trouble getting through customs.
    General Gogol: I can't imagine why.
