Bond's Best One-Liners

Image for Bond's Best One-Liners

Famed for his use of innuendo, 007 loves to use his silver tongue on the ladies (steady). The 60s and 70s Bond films tended to be much more insinuation-heavy, and in some cases very politically incorrect by today's standards, but Pierce Brosnan brought the one-liners back in the 90s. Although Daniel Craig's serious take on the franchise has seen a step back from the quips again, these are some of Bond's best lines:

Dr. No


Miss Moneypenny: You've never taken me to dinner... James Bond: I would, you know. Only "M" would have me court-martialed for... illegal use of government equipment.

From Russia With Love


Tatiana: [Trying on dresses] I will wear this one in Piccadilly. James Bond: You won't. They've just passed some new laws there.



Pussy Galore: My name is Pussy Galore. James Bond: I must be dreaming.


James Bond: You're a woman of many parts, Pussy!

You Only Live Twice


Tiger Tanaka: [Bond being bathed by Tanaka's women] You know what it is about you that fascinates them, don't you? It's the hair on your chest. Japanese men all have beautiful bare skin. James Bond: Japanese proverb say, "Bird never make nest in bare tree.


James Bond: [James is in bed with Ling, a Chinese woman] Why do Chinese girls taste different from all other girls? Ling: You think we better, huh? James Bond: No, just different. Like Peking Duck is different from Russian Caviar. But I love them both. Ling: Darling, I give you very best duck.

On Her Majesty`s Secret Service

Irma Bunt: [A girl writes on Bond's leg under the table, to which Bond makes an awkward face] Is anything ze matter, Sir Hilary? James Bond: Just a slight stiffness coming on... in the shoulder.


Diamonds Are Forever


Plenty O'Toole: Hi, I'm Plenty. James Bond: But of course you are. Plenty O'Toole: Plenty O'Toole. James Bond: Named after your father perhaps?


James Bond: Weren't you a blonde when I came in? Tiffany Case: Could be. James Bond: I tend to notice little things like that - whether a girl is a blonde or a brunette. Tiffany Case: Which do you prefer? James Bond: Well, as long as the collar and cuffs match...

Live And Let Die


Solitaire: [Bond has just explained the first two Lover's Lessons to Solitaire] Is there time before we leave, for Lesson number 3? James Bond: [Undressing] Of course. There's no sense going out half-cocked.


Miss Caruso: [As Bond unzips Miss Caruso's dress with the magnet in his watch] Such a delicate touch. James Bond: Sheer magnetism, darling.

The Man With The Golden Gun


James Bond: Good morning. How's the water? Chew Mee: Why don't you come in and find out? James Bond: Sounds very tempting, Miss...? Chew Mee: Chew Mee. James Bond: Really? Well, there's only one small problem. I have no swimming trunks. Chew Mee: Neither have I.

The Spy Who Loved Me


Minister of Defence: Bond! What do you think you're doing? James Bond: Keeping the British end up, sir.

For Your Eyes Only


Front Desk Clerk: I hope you have a pleasant stay. James Bond: [Bond eyes a beauty nearby who smiles at him] I'm, ah, sure I will.

A View To A Kill


James Bond: Well my dear, I take it you spend quite a lot of time in the saddle. Jenny Flex: Yes, I love an early morning ride. James Bond: Well, I'm an early riser myself.


Max Zorin: [The morning after Bond sleeps with May Day] You slept well? James Bond: A little restless but I got off eventually.



Xenia Onatopp: You don't need the gun. James Bond: Well, that depends on your definition of safe sex.

Tomorrow Never Dies


James Bond: [Whilst being in bed with his Scandinavian language tutor] I always enjoyed learning a new tongue. Miss Moneypenny: You always were a cunning linguist, James.

The World Is Not Enough

James Bond: [In bed with Christmas Jones] I was wrong about you. Dr. Christmas Jones: Yeah, how so? James Bond: I thought Christmas only comes once a year.


The Cigar Girl: Would you like to check my figures? James Bond: Oh, I'm sure they're perfectly rounded.

Die Another Day


Verity: I see you handle your weapon well. James Bond: I have been known to keep my tip up.


Jinx: Wait, don't pull it out. I'm not finished with it yet. James Bond: See? It's a perfect fit.
