** "One evening, I was volunteered to attend a function at a huge house just off the Grand Canal, in aid of the Save-Venice campaign. Creator/KenAdam offered to come with me. We eventually found the bar and soon realized that we were the youngest people there. We'd just taken a sip of our drinks when a white-haired old lady, in a very strangulated upper-class English country voice asked, "What are you doing here in Venice?"///
"We're making a film", I said///
"Oh, a fillum, eh? What sort of fillum?"///
"It's James Bond, 007"///
"Ohhh! And what do '''you''' do?" she asked.///
Ken was now snorting with laughter behind her back - I could have killed him.///
"Well, I sort of try to play James Bond", was my considered reply///

\n* While Bond is hanging off the side of a cable car:
-->'''Holly''': Hang on, James.
-->'''Bond''': ''(casually)'' [[DeadpanSnarker The thought had occurred to me]].
* From Creator/RogerMoore's autobiography:
** Creator/LoisChiles wasn't feeling easy about filming one scene. So, to help relax her, during one take someone dressed up as a green martian and started washing the plexiglass windows of the space station. It worked.
** While filming in Venice, some prop boys got some wreaths for the funeral boat from a church...where a ''real'' funeral was taking place.

** It took ''six takes'' to get the Bondola afloat...because the left side inflated more quickly than the right and Moore fell in the canal. "It worked earlier, guv", said the props man. Thankfully, it was done on take six, when Moore was down to his last dry suit.
** When Moore had a kidney stone attack, the publicist told reporters, "Creator/RogerMoore has passed his kidney stone, but the bad news is that Creator/LoisChiles has swallowed it".

* Let's not forget this bit where Q gives Bond the wrist dart gun.
--> '''Q''': "It's activated by nerve impulses from the wrist muscles."
--> '''Bond''': "Like this?" (the dart lands in a painting of [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfStuart King William III]] on a horse. Specifically, the horse's bottom, so that it looks like the dart caused the horse to jump up)
--> '''M''': [[SarcasmMode Oh, thank you, 007!]]
--> '''Q''': "Be careful, will you?"
--> '''Bond''': "Yes, Q."
--> '''Q''': "Ten darts. Five blue-tipped with armor-piercing heads. Five red-tipped, cyanide coated, causing death in thirty seconds.
--> '''Bond''': "Very novel, Q. You must get them in the stores for Christmas."
