Thunderball (1965)
Fiona: You look pale, Mr. Bond. I hope I didn't frighten you.
Bond: Well you see, I've always been a nervous passenger.
Fiona: Some men just don't like to be driven.
Bond: No, some men just don't like to be taken for a ride.

[after making love to the evil Fiona Volpe]
James Bond: My dear girl, don't flatter yourself. What I did this evening was for Queen and country. You don't think it gave me any pleasure, do you?
Fiona: But of course, I forgot your ego, Mr. Bond. James Bond, the one where he has to make love to a woman, and she starts to hear heavenly choirs singing. She repents, and turns to the side of right and virtue...
[she steps on Bond's foot]
Fiona: ... but not this one!

[Bond is standing in the doorway between their apartments as Fiona takes a bath]
Fiona: Aren't you in the wrong room, Mr. Bond?
Bond: Not from where I'm standing.

Fiona: [after Bond finds her in the bathtub in his hotel room] Since you're here, would you mind giving me something to put on?
[Bond casually hands Fiona her shoes]

Bond: How far do you go?
Fiona: You better fasten your safety belt.

Emilio Largo: Pull! Of course they are watching us, my dear. What else have they to do?
Fiona: You would like Bond dead.
Emilio Largo: I can think of no better arrangement.
Fiona: Because he tries to make love to your... woman?
Emilio Largo: Because he is Bond, and, as an enemy of SPECTRE, *should* be killed.
Fiona: Mark! If Bond had died last night as a result of your hastiness, his government would have known for certain the bombs are here. When the time is right, he will be killed. Pull! I shall kill him.

Fiona: But the music is gonna go on all night, anyhow. Enough to drive you wild. You like wild things, Mr. Bond, Mr. James Bond? Ah!
Bond: Wild? You should be locked up in a cage.
Fiona: Mm. Mm, this bed feels like a cage. All these bars. Do you think I'll be... *safe*?

Fiona: [after a lovemaking session] You made a shocking mess out of my hair, you sadistic brute. Will you zip me up, please?
Bond: Mm! No wonder you can get dressed so quickly. On the way we can have a little talk. You may find it interesting. Come on.
Fiona: I'm coming. I hate to think I'm going to miss anything.
[Bond opens the door, Largo's henchmen are there, Bond quickly closes the door]
Fiona: And now *we* can go somewhere for an interesting talk.
Bond: Friends of yours, no doubt.
[opens the door]
Bond: Come in!
Fiona: You dress quickly, too. I didn't see that gun in the mirror.
Bond: Not that it matters, but that was under the pillow all the time.
Fiona: And when did you find out?
Bond: Well, you're wearing the same ring as Largo.
Fiona: It's a ring I like to wear.
Bond: Vanity has its dangers.
Fiona: Vanity, Mr. Bond? Something you know so *much* about.

Francois Derval: You'll be here when I come back?
Fiona: Mm hmm.
Francois Derval: But I may not be in the mood then.
Fiona: Do you wanna bet?
Francois Derval: You know your Francois, huh?
Fiona: I know me.

Fiona: [seductively] Uh, shouldn't you get out of those wet clothes? You'll catch your... death of cold.

Fiona: [escorting Bond out at gunpoint] Careful, Mr. Bond. Careful.

Fiona: What's your name?
Bond: James Bond.
Fiona: Fiona Volpe.
[Fiona takes a turn at high speed]
Bond: Fly here often?
Fiona: Do I make you nervous?
Bond: No. It's just that I have no desire to be... capsized twice in one night.
Fiona: Well, at least you won't have to... swim ashore. Have you been here before, Mr. Bond?
Bond: No, I haven't. But, uh, this *is* the road to Nassau?
Fiona: Yes... Eventually.

Fiona: What a blow it must have been: You having a failure.
James Bond: Well, you can't win them all.

Ambulance Attendant: His watch, identification disc.
Palazzi: Au revoir.
Fiona: No, no. He always says "ciao."
Palazzi: Ciao.
Fiona: And the cap: it's too far back on your head.
Palazzi: The rest of my money: just have it ready.

Palazzi: Not enough. Hundred thousand dollars is not enough.
Fiona: What are you trying to say?
Palazzi: I changed my mind. Two years of my life. Studying the film, the reports. Plastic operations, voice lessons. Make it a quarter of a million. Or get someone else.
Ambulance Attendant: There *is* no one else.
Palazzi: Exactly. *I* am Derval.
[the ambulance attendant points a pistol at Angelo's back]
Fiona: Put that away. Angelo is right. I'll inform Number One we made a new arrangement. This is merely a down payment.
Palazzi: Alright, but against quarter of a million.
Fiona: Agreed.
