Bond and Camille’s first meeting: “You’re late.” “I had to meet with a friend of Mr. White.”
Bond and Mathis in Talamone: “Do you know Bolivia?” “I have a few friends there, I was stationed in South America for 7 years…”
Mathis in the Bolivian taxi: “I want to speak with a friend… Carlos?”
That makes a total of sixteen (16) uses of “friend” or “friends” in the film!
