Say what you will about Stacey Sutton (like the difference in age between her actress and Roger Moore), but she does allow Bond to show his softer side for the camera. The scene where he makes dinner for her, fixes her phone line, and even tucks her in to bed, serves as a sweet contrast to his Jerkassery in his first films.
And the next morning, when we see that he sat up all night in a chair with the shotgun to make sure she's safe.
Grace Jones's tribute to Roger Moore, calling him a "great gentleman and a great father". Especially touching considering the on-set friction between the two.
