    Christopher Lee mentions that on the "Inside TMWTGG" documentary on the DVD.

    Was it mentioned if it came from Fleming or was it just something he (Lee) enjoyed with oysters? (BTW I hadn't noticed the oyster in Scaramanga's left hand either until @Dragonpol mentioned them!)

    It was just for the film itself as these items do not feature in Fleming's TMTWGG novel.

    No, Lee spoke of his surprise that the black velvet he was drinking was real black velvet. And, now that I just watched it again, he also mentions his surprise that the oysters were real as well.

    In TWINE, one of Renard's henchmen seen while entering the submarine at 1:41:05 looks to be the same man as the member of Special Branch that Bond is blamed for killing in QoS.

    That would be actor / stunt performer, Derek Lea.
    Stunts in GE, TND, TWINE, DAD and QOS
    Actor in TWINE, DAD and QOS

    A lot of the stunt performers have small roles throughout the Bond series.

    Wai Lin has a different "YAH!" when shooting out the stealth ship engines in Spanish. It sounds like an American woman doing an annoyed grunt.The French version contains the original "YAH!", while German and Portuguese listeners get no " YAH!", grunt, or scream of any sort. Also, she does her fighting shouts different in Spanish.

    Her first "YAH!" is not heard in Spanish, is the original in French, sounds more like "HE!" in German, and Portuguese listeners once again get nothing.

    Also, the waiters at Carver's party are all wearing tuxedoes with newspaper headlines.

    And finally: There are a TON of numbers in TND.

    Just noticed that 007 sits in the seventh seat at the meeting in TB after Largo's theft of the Vulcan bombs. Can't believe I never caught that before.

    The twelve agents all have their numbered seat. That one woman must be some broad.
    Hope to see her work with Bond someday.

    @Creasy47 watch out for the dog taking a leak during the junkanoo sequence.

    It took me a long time to notice that Jinx's bikini belt buckle is a "J". Which is a pretty cute detail.
    (It probably took me so long to notice though because I usually avoid DAD like the plague)

    I just noticed that in TND Bond and Wai Lin ride by Scaramanga's Island while looking for the Stealth Boat. :D

    It is one of the first thing I noticed as a child. The thing I noticed last time I watched TB is 006 in that scene. Was it Trevelian or his successor?

    I might actually ask this in the question thread.

    One is that I choose to believe that in the PTS of OHMSS Bond is seeking revenge for Tracy's death.

    That's be a neat trick ;)

    Surprised I never picked up on this line of dialogue in Goldfinger before: I noticed when Bond is on Goldfinger's private jet en route to Baltimore, he asks about his attaché case and is told it was, "destroyed upon inspection." I take it that's a nod to the case he received in From Russia With Love that has a special mechanism to open otherwise it will explode.

    I didn't think of it that way. I assumed it meant that they took it apart looking for any information on Bond. But, you may be right, @Mansfield .

    No. I've always taken to reference the attache case given out to all field operatives a la FRWL.

    Perhaps it is the suspicion they have of Bond in the scene that gives the impression the device worked to prevent tampering with its contents. I suppose it's up to interpretation unless there is an anecdote to that particular scene in a book or interview.

    I always took it to refer to the attaché case supplied by Q branch in FRWL.
    The response from Bond upon hearing it was damaged when examined suggests he knows someone got hurt or knocked out when it exploded.
    "Apology quite un-necessary."

    It's a little nod to the previous film, but also if the audience are aware of the attaché case gadget, it shows that Bond has lost part of his arsenal in order to stop Goldfinger.

    I indeed always assumed it was 'destroyed' due to Goldfinger's henchmen just taking it apart like @Birdleson says. The link to the FRWL case is made here:jamesbond.wikia.com/wiki/Goldfinger as well.

    I do think it makes perfect sense. So it probably is the same case. Now I can't play back the dvd here at work (nor at home as I have no TV anymore) but is there a scene in GF where we see Bond carrying an attache case?

    The attache case could have been destroyed in the Aston Martin DB5 crash too I suppose. That's what I thought had happened to it.

    Ah, yes. That was the line that helped make the connection for me.

    In OCTOPUSSY, just before the 1:10 mark, the chick in one of the Octopussy red/orange jumpsuits, who introduces Kamal Khan and escorts him into the room where Moore and Adams are talking, has ridiculous camel toe. I'm sorry to be crude, but there it is on Bluray, and I sure as Hell never noticed it before.
    It was nice to give us that, I thought.

    And you wonder why I appreciate OP so much @Birdleson. :D
    There are many of these moments throughout the Bond series. Watch the scene in FYEO between Bond and Lisl and Cassandra Harris pops out of her nightie. :-O

    In OP when Moore kills Ghrishka, there is the Avengers music going on. Or it sounds very similar. I wonder why.
