A Real Life example: The crew had been promised a big van full of catering supplies and food, having tasted the "depressing" food in Egypt. The truck gets there all right...but there's no food inside. Albert R. Broccoli, the producer, hears about this. What does he do? He gets massive shipments of pasta, spaghetti sauce, meatballs, etc. together, hauls it all to Egypt in a cargo plane (or a truck), and he treats the entire cast and crew to a huge spaghetti dinner, which he even cooked himself.
Bond going back into Atlantis to rescue Anya. He has absolutely no reason to do so - their mission was over, she'd made it clear to him that she was going to kill him once they'd finished working together, and he knew that he'd have to contend with Stromberg and Jaws (who'd almost killed him several times)... and he does it anyway. This is the major turning point for Moore's Bond, who up until now had been an unrepentant Jerk Ass.
