Top 10 Bond One Liners

Bond has returned to our screens in Quantum of Solace, but without such classic lines as “Martini; shaken, not stirred”, and “The name’s Bond. James Bond.”

Daniel Craig means it’s out with the one liners and in with the serious plot. For great puns you now have to delve deep into Bond’s prestigious/cheesy history. So let us cast our minds back to some of the most memorable quotes.

Here are Movie-Moron’s top ten best James Bond one liners.

10. Octopussy

    Bond is stabbed in a wad of cash hidden in his jacket.

    Bond: Thank god for hard currency!

    On an unrelated note, I asked a barmaid for a vodka martini this weekend. She didn’t have any martini. Dang.

    “Re-entry” isn’t there because it isn’t James Bond’s one liner, it belongs to Q.

    Also, just because you pulled a nurse this weekend, it doesn’t mean you’re Timothy Dalton.
    …Although I am quite jealous.

    I was in a tux at the time. My very own Vesper Lynd fawning over me on the dance floor. How could I not? It was the greatest moment of my short life, although the lack of martini cheapened it.

    Back on track:


    Mishkin: You will tell me everything you know about the Goldeneye satellite.
    Bond: What, no small talk? No chit-chat?

      Her name is Vesper Lynd and the quote actually goes more like this:

      -Am I going to have a problem with you bond?
      -No, don’t worry, you’re not my type..
      – smart?
