Favorite One-Liner from each Bond Actor?

edited March 2014 in Bond Movies Posts: 12,249
A little thread I thought I'd start; lots of people have specific favorite one-liners, so I wanted to make a topic for which you all liked the most from each actor. Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig all have had some great one-liners, so there's plenty to pick from. I'll start:

Sean Connery: "I think they were on their way to a funeral." (Dr. No)
George Lazenby: "He had lots of guts!" (On Her Majesty's Secret Service)
Roger Moore: "He always did have an inflated opinion of himself." (Live and Let Die)
Timothy Dalton: "He got the boot." (The Living Daylights)
Pierce Brosnan: "She always did enjoy a good squeeze." (GoldenEye)
Daniel Craig: "That last hand nearly killed me." (Casino Royale)

Strangely enough, all of my favorites come from the actors' debut films. So what are your favorite one-liners from each Bond actor?

    Lazenby-"He had a lot of guts."
    Moore-"Take a giant leap for Mankind."
    Dalton-"I hope you don t snore, Q."
    Brosnan-"Bond...James Bond."
    Craig-"I won t consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood."

    Connery : "I must be dreaming" (Goldfinger)
    Lazenby : "This never happened to the other fellow"
    Moore : "Keeping the British end up, Sir" (TSWLM)
    Dalton : "Salt corrosion" (TLD)
    Brosnan : "One... last... screw" (TWINE)
    Craig : "That last hand nearly killed me..." (CR)

    and many more, but those are the ones I thought about almost straight away.

    Connery: "Shocking, positively shocking"

    Lazenby: "He had a lot of guts"

    Moore: "Just keeping the British end up sir"

    Dalton: "I hope you don't snore Q"

    Brosnan: "They'll print anything these days"

    Craig: "Now the whole worlds gonna know that you died scratching my balls"

    It was tough choosing just one for Connery, Moore, Brosnan and Craig (Lazenby and Dalton didn't have many good ones so they were pretty easy) but these were the ones that first popped into my head.

    You didn't see that line coming a mile off though? Probably the laziest one liner of all time.

    It's just so cheesy I can't not like it

    That just about sums up the writing during that era. Lazy writing which led to some truly terrible puns.

    Regardless as to whether people hate Moore or not, he had some absolute zingers written for him.

    I thought that was genius script writing :(

    "Shocking... positively shocking." -James Bond
    "Just a slight stiffness coming on..." -James Bond
    "That's detente, comrade." -James Bond
    "Kara, we're inside a Russian airbase in the middle of Afghanistan." -James Bond
    "I gave him the limp." -James Bond
    "If you had just been born wouldn't you be naked?" -James Bond

    Not necessarily the classic idea of hilarious 'one-liners' but more 'snarky comments'.

    Connery: "Small World"
    Lazenby: "He's branched off"
    Moore: "Thank God for hard currency"
    Dalton: "I'm sure you and El Presidente will make a perfect couple"
    Brosnan: "See you back at the lodge"
    Craig: "Put it all on red"

    I'm sure I'll think of others later but those are just off the top of my head.

    It's hard to decide on favorites for these, but here are a few:

    Connery: "Shocking... positively shocking."
    Lazenby: "This never happened to the other fella."
    Moore: "Ah, Ms. Anders, I didn't recognize you with your clothes on."
    Dalton: "Then I guess it's a... a farewell to arms."
    Brosnan: "Beg your pardon... forgot to knock!"
    Craig: "They'll be too bloody late!"

    How about one-liner opportunities that were not taken, which created an even better effect? For example, when Bond shoots Gettler in the patched eye with a nail gun in Casino Royale, a more comedic Bond might have said something like, "Nailed it!" But just the way he pulls the nail out of his back and keeps going is great! Anyway, just a thought :)
