* 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.

* 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 Milvoy 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.
