  • M mentions that the Americans won't be happy with how Bond handled the last movie's events. Bond retorts that they got Le Chiffre as promised. "They got his body." "If they wanted his soul, they should have made a deal with a priest."
  • "You were supposed to shoot her!" "Well, I missed."
  • Bond expresses his displeasure with the humble conditions at the hotel that Fields has checked them into, to which Fields replies that it was chosen to fit their cover story: they're teachers on sabbatical. How well does he take it? The scene cuts to Bond checking them in at a much higher-class hotel: "We are teachers on sabbatical, and we have just won the lottery."
  • M's ranting about her traitorous bodyguard.
    • "I found this {a ceramic ashtray} and three other bloody Christmas presents I bought him about the house."
    • "When someone says 'We've got people everywhere', you expect it to be hyperbole! Lots of people say that. Florists use that expression. It doesn't mean that they've got somebody working for them inside the bloody room!"
  • The end-credits revelation of Strawberry Fields' first name.
  • "This man tortures me, and you serve him some of my fine wine?" "You only buy cheap wine." Mathis goes silent, and his girlfriend says "In fact, if he hadn't tortured you, then you would have never gotten your settlement. As well as this nice place on your own private island. So technically, you owe him everything." Mathis, dumbstruck, only says "...go work on your tan!" And she leaves with a smug grin, and is later seen sunbathing.

  • Camille to Greene:
    Camille: You tried to have me killed.
    Greene: And that made me very sad.
  • "Tell M Slate was a dead end." "Dammit! He killed him!"
  • "Tosca's not for everyone."
  • Bond telling Felix that he should just answer the phone with "CIA" for all the good they are at hiding their presence. He was able to get Felix's phone number by asking a cab driver.
  • Equal parts sad and funny— Mathis dies in Bond's arms, and so Bond embraces him order to take the money out of his wallet.
  • After Agent Fields has met Bond in Bolivia:
    Mathis: I think she has handcuffs.
    Bond: I hope so.
  • Felix casually finishes his beer while a CIA SWAT team makes a mess of a bar they know Bond has already left.
