The Gilligan Cut where Kara insists on getting her cello during their getaway.
Bond and Kara's first romantic moment on the Ferris wheel, which comes across as genuine and natural. The entire relationship between the two is a major difference from the old Bond tendency to woo the women into bed effortlessly and drop them without a single memory; Bond seems like he truly wants to stay with Kara, maybe even forever.
Saunder's finally casting aside his By-the-Book Cop tendencies coming around to Bond's more bold, touch-and-go, approach to the mission the second time they meet; almost mirthfully offers to do whatever Bond requests knowing if it might land him in trouble with MI-6 later. Before he heads off for the last time, Bond gives him a sincerely warm thanks for his help, for which he responds in kind with smile almost as if he a earned a friendship with him. Which makes his sudden death a moment later that much harder to bear. Especially for Bond.
The first thing Pushkin does when waking up after Faking the Dead is apologizing to his mistress for having to watch the affair.
Kamran Shah's joyful laughter while Bond is beating the shit out of the Soviet prison guards, no doubt Karman felt Bond was giving the man a much overdue karmic punishment.
The ending. The Bond girl, Kara Milovy, finishes her concert and runs into M and General Gogol, who tell her Bond's off on assignment. Dejected, she returns to her room...and guess who's behind the door? He even filled a couple of martini glasses for her! Awwww....
Kamran Shah and his Afghan rebels arrival at the concert, even if they were late.
As a whole, Kara Vilvoy receives probably one of the most heartwarming endings a Bond girl has ever gotten. She receives thunderous applause at the concert, and her dream of performing at Carnegie Hall has just become more realistic as a result. On top of that, after having been informed by Pushkin that she would be considered a defector, M introduces her to retired General Gogol, now a diplomat for the Foreign Services, who grants her a full immigration status, meaning she can now come and go as she pleases.
