Gaming With Bond

Call me strange, but friends and I have made a game in the past, working to inject James Bond quotes into everyday conversation.

For example, it’s always nice upon termination at work or a denial of a raise to tell the boss, eyebrow raised, “We all get our jollies one way or another.”

And why serve just coffee when one’s guest might arrive at “…A propitious moment, coincident with their country’s one indisputable contribution to Western civilization, afternoon tea…”

And I certainly would never tell my date, “I set the timers for six minutes. The same six minutes that you gave me. What does that mean? We have three minutes.”

Try the following quotes if you dare in polite conversation, or contribute your own favorites (and can you name the films these hail from?):

“You can’t shoot me! I have a very low threshold of death. My doctor says I can’t have bullets enter my body at any time.”

“You wanna put that in English for those of us who don’t speak Spy?”

“Oh, don’t be an idiot, 007. I know exactly what you’re up to, and quite frankly, you’re going to need my help.”

“And that, I think, concludes our business.”

“I think you made your point. Thank you for the demonstration.”

“I just remembered. It’s against Service policy to give endorsements.”

“Both hands on the wheel, Mr. Jones, I’m a very nervous passenger.”

“Ours is the loneliest profession, Mr. Bond.”

“You seem to have this nasty habit of surviving.”

“You burned me, and now you want my help?”

“Would you settle for a tulip?”
