Die Another Day (2002)
James Bond: You know, you're cleverer than you look.
Q: Still, better than looking cleverer than you are.

Q: I wish I could make you vanish.

James Bond: You must be joking.
Q: As I learned from my predecessor, Bond, I never joke about my work.

James Bond: Check the tape. You'll find he's dead and she only has a flesh wound.
Q: There's always an excuse, isn't there, Double-O-Zero?

James Bond: Give me the old fashioned target range, Quartermaster.
Q: Yes, well, it's called the future, so get used to it.

[Q and Bond enter Q's office as Bond looks around at the vast array of devices left over from previous cases]
James Bond: So, this is where they keep the old relics, then, eh?
Q: I'll have you know our TOP cutting-edge technology is designed here.
James Bond: [releasing the knife from the briefcase used in the From Russia With Love affair and fingering a blade] Point taken...
Q: Must you touch everything?
James Bond: [seeing his Thunderball jet pack] Hey, does this still work?
[James activates the jet pack, and Q struggles to subdue it]
Q: Now look...
James Bond: [holding up the knife-studded shoe worn by Rosa Klebb years ago] So where is this cutting-edge stuff?
Q: I'm trying to get to it.

Miss Moneypenny: [Moneypenny is typing a disinformative newspaper report in her office, when 007 walks in] James!
James Bond: Moneypenny.
[Bond and Moneypenny embrace and kiss. Bond lays Moneypenny out on her desk]
Miss Moneypenny: Oh, James...
[Continue kissing, when all of a sudden... ]
Q: [walking in] Moneypenny?
[Moneypenny sits up abruptly and removes a pair of virtual reality simulation centre glasses]
Miss Moneypenny: Um... I was... um... just testing it out.
[She blushes and buttons her blouse]
Q: Oh, it's rather hard, isn't it?
Miss Moneypenny: Yes... very...

Q: [Explaining the Aston Martin] ... Your new transportation
[nothing visible on the platform]
James Bond: I think you've been down here too long...

Q: [after a virtual reality shootout exercise] A perfect marksman isn't really supposed to shoot his own boss.
James Bond: Check the replay. You'll find he's dead and she's only got a flesh wound.
Q: There's always an excuse, isn't there, 00-zero.

Q: Now, a new watch. This should be your 20th, I believe.
James Bond: How time flies.
Q: Yes, well 007, why don't you establish a record by actually returning this one.

Q: [Explaining to Bond his new "adaptive camouflage" Aston Martin] To the casual eye, it's as good as invisible. Plus all the usual refinements: eject seat torpedoes, target seeking shotguns to shoot down mobile objects.


The World Is Not Enough (1999)
Q: Oh, grow up 007!

James Bond: You're not retiring anytime soon - are you?
Q: Now, pay attention 007. I've always tried to teach you two things. First, never let them see you bleed.
James Bond: And the second?
Q: Always have an escape plan.

James Bond: I suppose we all have to pay the piper sometime. Right, Q?
Q: Oh, pipe down, 007!
James Bond: Was it something I said?
Q: No, something you destroyed. My fishing boat! For my retirement, away from you!

R: As I was saying, the very latest in interception countermeasures. Titanium armor. A multi-tasking heads up display. And six beverage cup holders. All in all, rather stocked.
Q: Fully loaded. I think is the term.
R: I think...
Q: You're not here to think. You're here to do what I tell you.

[after Q introduces Bond to his successor]
James Bond: If you're Q, does that make him R?
R: Ah yes, the legendary 007 wit, or at least half of it.

R: [Secretly turns off the live infrared camera images of Bond in bed with Christmas Jones, while others in the room are surprised when the screen goes dark] It must be a premature form of the millennium bug.


James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing (2003) (VG)
Q: Ah, 007, we have some new equipment for you. Have you met my new assistant, Miss Nagai?
Bond, James: I don't believe I've had the pleasure.
Q: And you won't if I have any say in the matter.

Q: Now, 007, do try to return this equipment in pristine condition.
Bond, James: I'll do my best.
Q: That's what I was afraid of.

Q: [Bond escapes Peru on aboard an aeroplane] Congratulations 007. You saved the girl and destroyed most of my equipment. I hope you're happy 007?
Bond, James: Better than saving the equipment and losing the girl, don't you agree?
Q: [annoyed] Oh, 007 I give up!

Q: Time is short 007. We only had time to upgrade your grenades.
Bond, James: [Miss Nagai hands him a coin, which is a grenade] More change, Q?
Miss Nagai: This grenade sends out an eletric magnetic pluse, destroying any eletronic device near the blast.
Bond, James: [throws the coin near some monitors and detonates the grenade, destroying the monitors] A Stunning development.
Q: [annoyed] Oh, grow up.

Q: [after reaching the plane] Congradulations 007. You saved the girl and destroyed most of my equipment.
Bond, James: That's better than saving the equipment and losing the girl, don't you agree?
Q: [Slightly annoyed] Oh, 007 I give up.


007 Racing (2000) (VG)
R: Oh, please, you call that driving? Q could drive better than that, and he's dead! I could drive better than that with a flesh wound in my hand!
