Quotes - Octopussy

Bond: What can you tell me about Kamal Kahn?
Vijay: Exiled Afghan prince, sportsman, cricket, tennis - I play a bit myself. As a matter of fact I've got a part time job as a pro at Kamal's club.
Bond: What have you learned so far?
Vijay: Well, my backhand's improved.

Octopussy: You are James Bond. 007, licensed to kill. Am I to be your target tonight?
Bond: No, not necessarily. That depends on how much you tell me about jewellery smuggling. And why one of our men was killed in East Berlin.

Kahn: We'll take these as well. Dollars, Pounds, Francs, Marks. I can always print my own.


Orlov: The West is decadent and divided. It has no stomach to risk our atomic reprisals. Throughout Europe daily demonstrations demand unilateral disarmament.
Gogol: I see no reason to risk war to satisfy you personal paranoia and thrust for conquest!

[Seeing Penelope Smallbone]
Bond: Well, I must say you become more beautiful every day.
Moneypenny: I am over here!
Bond: But of course you are.
Moneypenny: And this is Penelope Smallbone, my new assistant.
Bond: What can I say Moneypenny, except that she is as attractive and charming...
Moneypenny: As I used to be?
Bond: I didn't say that.
Moneypenny: You're such a flatterer.

Bond: [rattling around in the taxi] This should shake 'em off.

Magda: I don't know how to say goodbye.
Bond: Actions speak loader than words.

Octopussy: Oh James, we're two of a kind. There are vast rewards for a man of your talents willing to take risks.
Bond: I am not for hire.
Octopussy: Naturally you do it for Queen and Country. I don't have a country, no price on my head. I don't have to answer you, a paid assassin, for what I am.

Bond: Lets say, for argument's sake, that I don't feel like talking.
Kahn: Don't worry, you will.
Bond: Let me guess. Thumbscrews and hot coals.
Kahn: Hardly, we are much more sophisticated than that.

Kahn: You need a great deal of luck to get out of this.
Bond: Oh luck? But then I shall use players privledge, and use your lucky dice. It's all in the wrist. [Not looking at the game] Double six! Fancy that.


[Receiving flowers from Bond]
Smallbone: Thank you, Commander Bond.
Bond: You know me?
Smallbone: Miss Moneypenny described you...
Moneypenny: ...In nauseating detail.

Bond: [handing a sward-swallower's knife back] You'd better stick this back yourself.

Magda: I collect memories.
Bond: Well, lets get on with making a few.

Q: How can I be expected to maintain the quality of my work; sent out here at a moment's notice; no proper facilities.
Bond: Yes well, you wouldn't happen to have a small piece of thread about, someone stuck a knife in my wallet.
Q: They missed you, what a pity.

Octopussy: Smuggling is no concern of the Secret Service. I have violated no British law. You are free to leave but I would much prefer if you stayed as my guest for a few days.

[Preparing to kill Bond]
Grischska: This for my brother.
Bond: And that's for 009.

Gogol: My government categorically denies that the incident ever occured. However, we do request Commander returns one our historic national treasures: the Romanov star.
Minister of Defence: In the interest of Anglo-Soviet relations, I think that would be possible.

Kahn: Spend the money quickly Mr. Bond.
Bond: I intend to, Kamal Kahn. My security [waving the Faberge], and yours [waving the rigged dice].

[After finding the Acrostar out of fuel]
Bond: Fill'er up, please!


Bond: Up to now you are the least leathal and by far the prettiest of Kamal's friends that I've come across.
Magda: Thank you.
Bond: So, does he have a proposition for me, or do you?
Magda: He suggests a trade. The egg for your life.
Bond: I heard the price of eggs were going up.

Kahn: Bond has escaped.
Octopussy: How careless of you. Oh, by the way Kamal, I would like you to meet my new houseguest.
Bond: An old friend of the family, you might say.
Kahn: You have a nasty habit of surviving.
Bond: Oh, you know what they say about the fittest.

Orlov: General Gogol is presumptuous, he speaks for himself and others, who cling to timid, outdated and unrealistic policies. Must I remind you, the committee, of our overwhelming superiority over NATO forces, before we give it away!

Kahn: Double six! It was not such a good double to accept after all.

Q: Look, I haven't time for these adolescent antics.

Vijay: I hear the island is exclusively for women. No men allowed.
Bond: Sexual discrimination. I will definitely have to pay it a visit.

Bond: I trust you can handle this contraption Q.
Q: It goes by hot air.
Bond: Oh then you can.

Magda: You have a very good head for faces.
Bond: And figures.

Vijay: I am Vijay, Special Expeditor to Universal Exports. Welcome to India, Commader Bond.


Orlov: You should be concerned about getting out of here alive.
Bond: I am more concerned about an atomic bomb exploding on a US airforce base. You surely can't be inviting a full-on nuclear war?
Orlov: Against whom?
Bond: My god, of course. Our early warning system will rule out the possibility of that bomb being launched from Russia or anywhere else. Everyone will assume, incorrectly, that it was an American bomb triggered accidentally.
Orlov: That would be the most plausible explanation.
Bond:; Europe will insist on unilateral dissarmourment, leaving every border undefended for you to walk across at will. And it doesn't matter a damn to you that thousands of innocent people will be killed in that little accident of yours.
Orlov: Better than a handful of old men in Moscow bargaining away our advantage in disarmament talks.
Bond: On your feet General, you're going to stop that train.

M: Operation Trove. You'll be replacing 009. He turned up dead in East Germany.
Minister of Defence: I'm afraid there's not much to go on.
Bond: We do have one lead minister - Property of a Lady.

M: Oh and Bond, sign a check for that egg before you leave. It's Government Property now.

Vijay: [beating some goons from the taxi] Game, set and match.

Kahn: Mr. Bond is indeed a very rare breed. Soon to be extinct.

Kahn: Englishman, likes eggs, preferably Faberge, and dice, preferably loaded. His name is James Bond.

Hotel Girl: If I can be of assistance, anything at all?
Bond: Perhaps later.

[Bond bids on the egg]
Fanning: Have you gone mad?
Bond: Lets see how badly he wants it.

Bond: Toro? Sounds like a load of bull.

Bond: Vijay, we have company.
Vijay: No problem, this is a company car!

Kahn: [hunting Bond] Let the sport commence!


M: Remember 007 - you are on your own.
Bond: That is a great comfort.

General's Aid: I know the General will get a big blast out of this.
Kahn: [Alluding to the bomb] I am sure he wont be disappointed.

Octopussy: You left me to be killed, along with thousands of innocent people!

Vijay: Is he still there.
Q: You must be joking, 007 on an island, surrounded exclusively by women. You wont see him 'til dawn.

Kahn: The egg has been recovered. You should be pleased.
Octopussy: I'm not pleased it was stolen in the first place. Nor that the thief knows enough about us to bring it here.

Kahn: Shall we double? I feel lucky.

M: Book yourself on the next flight out.
Bond: [Waving a ticket] Well, Sir, I have 55 minutes to catch that flight.

Lady on tour: Are you with our group?
Bond: No ma'am, I am with the economy tour.

Gobinda: That was Bond.
Kahn: Good, let him keep going. He will be late and we will be rid of him too.

Bond: [to a snake] Hiss off.

Q: [to Vijay] Don't let him teach you any of his bad habits.

Bond: [having been stabbed by a goon in his wallet] Thank God for hard currency.

Fanning: Kamal Kahn, usually a seller. Marginal quality and dubious sources.

Bond: Well, it' a small world, you're a Toro too.


Kahn: It is now 11.45. The performance begins at three. Allowing for delays, set the bomb to detonate at 3.45.

Fanning: This is the fourth [Faberge egg] to turn up at auction this year. It's from none of the usual sources, anonymous seller, number Swiss bank account. I'd say that the vendor was a Russian.

[Seeing Magda at Sotheby's]
Bond: Now there is a lady.
