** When it first appears, it's a tad unsettling but goes along well as an innocuous party mask. But then Bond and Manuela make their way out of the festivities... and the mask, while still in the background, ''looks directly at the camera'' and follows them.

* Jaws' carnival mask might qualify all by itself, even if he weren't stalking slowly down a dark alley towards his victim while wearing it, and he would have killed his victim if not for the accidental intervention of the oblivious carnival-goers twice.

-->''Oh god.'' ''OH GOD-''

-->''Oh god.'' ''OH GOD-''--> ''GOD! Whatís that? Look out! Look out! Terrific explosion. Black cloud going up into the air. Thereís a tidal wave coming at us. Great wall of water tearing down. There goes the submarine. God! Thrown out of the water upside down. Itís coming. Itís COMING Ö''

Added DiffLines:

* When Bond and Gala are caught in an "accidental" cliff collapse.
--> 'I suppose Galaís not too bad. Iíve almost forgotten what Iím called. Iím always having to change my name now that Iím in the Special Branch.í

--> ĎIn the Special Branch.í ĎIn the Special Branch.í ĎIn the Ö í

--> When the bomb falls. When the pilot miscalculates and the plane hits short of the runway. When the blood leaves the heart and consciousness goes, there are thoughts in the mind, or words, or perhaps a phrase of music, which ring on for the few seconds before death like the dying clang of a bell.

--> Bond wasnít killed, but the words were still in his mind, several seconds later, after it had all happened.


* Later, Chang bursts out at Bond so suddenly even he is taken aback, but the fight quickly turns to Bond's favor.

* While Drax is in league with the Soviets, what's to stop him firing the Moonraker eastward instead?

Added DiffLines:

** Not to mention how unnerving it is to realize that Jaws has ''been there the whole time'' watching them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[VillainWithGoodPublicity Hugo Drax]]'', full stop. The idea that a beloved, seemingly patriotic working-class boy made good is secretly a fanatical Nazi out for revenge is blood-curdling enough. Then, when Bond and Gala are captured and Drax is finally able to drop the facade, we start to see what a truly deranged sadist he ''really'' is as he cheerfully recounts his various crimes with great pride, taking enormous pleasure at the thought of the huge death, destruction and misery his Moonraker missile will cause.


* The deaths of the scientists who accidentally knock over a vial of nerve gas is horrifying, especially the music during that scene. The scene building up to it is tense as well, with no background music while Bond sneaks into the lab. An added bit of horror to this scene is the fact that Bond look disturbed when witnessing the scientists die. It's likely that ''he actually had no idea'' the liquid in the vial would turn into deadly gas when exposed to air. Further, there was nothing he could do to save them.
