Bond: Well, that's very kind of you.
Emilio Largo: It will be my pleasure.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Let us now proceed with new business. We will hear from Number Two, who's in charge of our NATO project, the most ambitious SPECTRE has ever undertaken. Your report, Number Two.
Emilio Largo: Thank you, Number One. Our intention is to demand the ransom of the North Atlantic treaty powers, of two hundred and eighty million dollars: a hundred million pounds.

Quist: Yes, I saw him.
Emilio Largo: What happened?
[Quist is silent, Largo slaps him with towel]
Emilio Largo: You let him get the better of you.
[gestures toward shark pool, Largo's men throw Quist in]
Quist: No!

Emilio Largo: Turn the underwater lights on. TV closed circuit. Hand grenades.

Emilio Largo: Stop it! Stop it! You fools! He's got you all shooting at each other!

Emilio Largo: No no! No! I've got a better idea.
[Largo activates the pool cover motor]
Emilio Largo: Lift the tunnel hatch and let them eat.

Disco Volante radio operator: Paris, Sir. Number One on the scrambler.
Emilio Largo: Number Two speaking. Phase Two completed.
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Number Two has done well. Unlike Count Lippe, whose choice of Angelo might have jeopardized the success of our project. Send a message to the Execution Branch.

James Bond: I don't know, I've never lost.

Fatima Blush: I think you have lost her.
Largo: Do you actually imagine that I could lose a woman to an underpaid British agent? Ya?
Fatima Blush: Yeah. And I warn you, if he is not executed at once, he'll have your Domino turned over.

Fatima Blush: Maximillian, why torture yourself over that kind of woman?
Largo: Maybe one day you have to kill her, Fatima.
Fatima Blush: Your sense of humor is delicious!

Largo: So, a drink?
James Bond: Vodka martini.
Largo: Of course.
