Madeleine: Can you go faster?
James Bond: We don’t need to go faster. We have all the time in the world.
James Bond: What are they burning?
Hotel Porter: Secrets. Wishes. Letting go of the past. Getting rid of old things, in come the new.
Madeleine: [referring to Vesper] Can you forgive her? For us?
James Bond: I left her behind a long time ago.
Madeleine: As long as we’re looking over our shoulder, the past is not dead. You have to let her go, even if it’s hard.
James Bond: You mean, if we’re to have a future? So, I do this, and then…
Madeleine: I’ll tell you all my secrets.
James Bond: [at Vesper’s grave] I miss you.
James Bond: [to Madeleine] You were right. Letting go is hard.
Madeleine: There is something I need to tell you.
James Bond: I bet there is.
Madeleine: James, why? Why would I betray you?
James Bond: We all have our secrets. We just didn’t get to yours yet.
Madeleine: [as James takes her to the train station] So, this is it?
James Bond: This is it.
Madeleine: How will I know that you’re okay?
James Bond: You won’t. You’ll never see me again.

Felix Leiter: I need a favor, brother.
James Bond: You didn’t get the memo? I’m retired.
Felix Leiter: I wouldn’t ask if you were still in Her Majesty’s Service.
James Bond: And what does that mean?
Felix Leiter: Our elected leaders aren’t playing nice in the sandbox.
Felix Leiter: Help us get this into the right hands.
James Bond: Oh, what, and you’re the right hands?
Felix Leiter: I’m not just a pretty face.
James Bond: I stopped trusting pretty faces a long time ago, Felix.
Felix Leiter: Yeah, I heard. Bad luck.
James Bond: Bad judgment.
Felix Leiter: Harder to tell the good from bad, villains from heroes, these days.
Felix Leiter: I need you, James. You’re the only one I trust with this. I’m not screwing around. I want to get back to my family, and tell them I saved the world again. Don’t you?
Nomi: In trouble?
James Bond: Constantly.
Nomi: I have a thing for old wrecks.
James Bond: Well, then you’ve come to the right place.
James Bond: [as Nomi takes off her wig] Well, that’s not the first thing I thought you’d take off, but…
Nomi: Yeah. You seem like a man who’s gagging for some action, Mr. Bond.
James Bond: Shall we cut to the chase?
Nomi: I’m here as a professional courtesy.
James Bond: Well, you’re not very courteous, are you?

James Bond: Double-O?
Nomi: Two years.
James Bond: Very young.
Nomi: High achiever.
Nomi: The world’s moved on since you retired, Commander Bond. Perhaps you didn’t notice.
James Bond: No, can’t say I had. And in my humble opinion, the world doesn’t change very much.
Nomi: You would say that. Look, this all seems like heaven, this little bubble, or whatever. But it’s so obvious you’re a man who only has time to kill, nothing to live for.
Nomi: [to James] You get in my way, I will put a bullet in your knee. The one that works.
Nomi: By the way, I’m not just any old double-O. I’m 007. You probably thought they’d retire it.
James Bond: It’s just a number.
James Bond: [to M] I met your new 007. She’s a disarming young woman.
James Bond: [over phone] Felix, I’m in.
Felix Leiter: He’s in. There’s a young lady in Santiago I want you to meet.
Paloma: [to James] I forget things when I get nervous. This is the biggest job I’ve ever had.
James Bond: This is going to go brilliantly.
Paloma: I know. I’ve done three weeks training.
James Bond: Two vodka martinis, shaken, not stirred.
James Bond: [over earpiece] What is this? Spectre bunga-bunga? You ever been to a party like this?
Paloma: How do you think I got this job?
Paloma: [over earpiece] Friend of yours?
James Bond: Cyclops. We ran into each other in Italy. That was an eye-opening experience.
Blofeld: But I see you from my little eye, and my little eye says hi. Now, see, now, we emerge from the shadows as gods on Mount Olympus. Here’s to the end of our pariah. Oh, my burden, my brother, James Bond. Goodbye, James.
James Bond: Three weeks training, really?
Paloma: More or less.
James Bond: This is my stop. Goodbye.
Paloma: You were excellent.
James Bond: You too. Next time, stay longer.
Paloma: I will.
James Bond: Spectre’s dead. Sit.
Felix Leiter: Who’s dead?
James Bond: All of them.
Felix Leiter: I don’t know about you, but I got a feeling in my gut Ash might not be on our side.
James Bond: And we need to have a conversation about the company you keep.
Felix Leiter: I’m with you.
Felix Leiter: This might be my last mission. What do you think?
James Bond: I think you’re just looking for an excuse not to help me.

James Bond: Come on, Felix, we’ve been in worse than this. Let’s go.
Felix Leiter: It’s like back when I was a kid on that shrimp boat.
James Bond: You’re from Milwaukee.
Felix Leiter: Am I? I thought I made that up.
Felix Leiter: James, it’s a good life, isn’t it?
James Bond: The best.
