M: Who the hell do they think they are? I report to the Prime Minister, and even he's smart enough not to ask me what we do. Have you ever seen such a bunch of self-righteous, arse-covering prigs? They don't care what we do; they care what we get photographed doing. And how the hell could Bond be so stupid? I give him double-O status and he celebrates by shooting up an embassy! Is the man deranged? And where the hell is he? In the old days, if an agent did something that embarrassing, he'd have the good sense to defect! Christ, I miss the Cold War!
M (to Bond): Go and stick your head in the sand and think about your future.
Vesper: Now, having just met you, I wouldn't go as far as calling you a cold-hearted bastard...
Bond: No, of course not.
Vesper: But it wouldn't be a stretch to imagine. You think of women as disposable pleasures rather than meaningful pursuits. So, as charming as you are, Mr. Bond, I will be keeping my eyes on our government's money and off your perfectly formed arse.
Bond: You noticed.
Vesper: Even accountants have imagination. How was your lamb?
Bond: Skewered. One sympathizes.
Bond: Can I give you a lift home?
Solange: That would really send him over the edge. I'm afraid I'm not that cruel.
Bond: Well, perhaps you're just out of practice.
Bond: What about a drink at my place?
Solange: Your place? Is it close?
Solange: One drink.
Vesper: Am I going to have a problem with you, Mr. Bond?
Bond: No, don't worry, you're not my type.
Bond: You don't think this is a very good plan, do you?
Vesper: So there is a plan. I got the impression that were risking millions of dollars and hundreds of lives on a game of luck.
Vesper: I'm afraid I'm a complicated woman.
Bond: That is something to be afraid of.
Vesper: James, I want you to know that if all that was left of you was your smile and your little finger, you'd still be more of a man than any I've known.
Bond: That's because you know what I can do with my little finger.
