The Film

  • The commentary on Bond's evident Death by Sex in the film's introduction.
    At least he died on the job... he would have wanted it that way.
  • Globetrotting sex machine Bond complaining about the imminent sex encounter.
  • "It can save your life, this cigarette." It does.
    • Following the above line, Bond quips that Tanaka sounds like a commercial.
  • This exchange between Bond and Tanaka, after Tanaka introduces himself.
    Bond: But if you are Tanaka, then how do you feel about me?
    Tanaka: I...Love you.
    • Earlier, when Moneypenny give Bond the password, she coyly tries to get him to repeat it back to her. You know, to make sure he's got it...
  • Bond and Helga after the Kobe Docks fight
    Helga: "I got you."
    Bond: "Well, enjoy yourself."
    • She slaps his face.
  • "Siamese vodka?!"
  • Bond's report after Little Nellie's encounter with SPECTRE gunships.
    Bond: "Little Nellie got a hot reception. Four bigshots made improper advances towards her, but she defended her honor with great success."
  • This line, combined with the visuals:
    Helga: "Mr. Osato believes in a healthy chest."
    Bond: "Really?"
  • When the bad guys' car is captured by the helicopter, the driver frantically keeps trying to steer even though the car's in midair.
    Tanaka: How's that for Japanese efficiency?
    Bond: Just a drop in the ocean.
  • Meta-example: There's a Japanese poster of the movie with the nonsensical title "007 Dies Twice"...
