    Another bad line is when Pierce Brosnan in GE says "Bond, James Bond". :))

    The one with Richards in the tunnel was really bad. "Barnd............James Barnd"

    DC ran him close in SP when coming onto Lucia: "Bund. .....James........Bund"

    Pierce's worst delivery is in TND when he's introduced to Carver. His eyes dart quickly to the right just before the lines, as if he's reacting to someone cueing him.

    Here's another one from Die Another Day!

    Gustav Graves: "Time to draw the line." =))

    "Oh, go on, then, eject me. See if I care."

    Shudder.

    Mommy was very bad.

    The worst of them all.

    I love FYEO, but one line always makes me cringe:

    "Moneypenney, a feast for my eyes."
    "What about the rest of you?"

    brrrr
  • "Oh, go on, then, eject me. See if I care."

    Shudder.

    Loved it. A great humorous moment in a truly great film. I got more of a charge out of that one than any single line in SP.

  • Mommy was very bad.

    The worst of them all.

    Nothing wrong with that one either. Bardem cracked me up at bit there, and with the lingering look in his eyes that followed.

    Can I say... Tiffany Case's all lines after the first half of Diamonds Are Forever really get annoying? She was playful, demanding, intimidating, quiet and calculative in the first half, why not remain like that? It's like she's hit her head before arriving on the circus setpiece and completely changed characteristics... Go figure.

    For the wrong reasons though for me?
  • TLD: 'Except this cello' with added echo. Always irate me!
  • "Thank you, cuckoo."

    F**k you.

    Oh, and
    "Franz Oberhauser died in an avalanche twenty years ago. The man you're speaking to now, the man inside your head, is Ernst Stavro Blofeld."

    That line means nothing to Bond, and it makes no sense as a dramatic revelation in the story. Bond literally does not react, because there is nothing he can possibly say in response to that, beyond maybe "Oh, okay. Cool."

    Following it up with the first line, and what it represents, is the icing on the cake.

    yeah the "cock-fight" one is hideous. I think I'm the only one who finds the "cunning-linguist" one funny despite its crudity.

    I'm also going to add Lowell's imitation of the "I love James so much" line.

    It's probably the way she says it that makes it bad. The 'cunning linguist'one. I don't Like Bond's Moneypenny one bit. I cringe every time I hear her say 'I know where to put that'.

    I like Bond's Moneypenny and I like her line delivery, except the very last one she has in DAD.

    I've never understood why she gets pilloried around here yet Caroline Bliss gets off fairly lightly. Can't stand Bliss's MP, terrible actress.

    This one from Dalton in LTK cracked me up:

    "Switch the BLOODY MACHINE OFF!!!"

    Theatrics again.

    Swann's "go to hell" line. In fact her entire ranting and raving at Bond really bothered me in that scene.

    Agreed with this one. Her aggressive attitude felt really forced.

    I won't argue that, but I still think she came off as more authentic than Craig in that scene.
    I have to agree with that, too. The "I don't have time for this" line also came off as weak and unrealistic.

    I don't think anything can beat the "predators" line in DAD.

    Try raging in a foreign language... I agree on Swan and craig here. think the writing is pretty bad to be honest. Doesn't make sense. seems there's a part missing or something.

    @SerialHitman yes, I think that is most definately the worst ever line in any film.

    It's not about the way she speaks. Just the theatrics overall in that scene feels off for me. Back when the scripts were leaked, I've read it and sort of imagined it to be a good scene, as well as Bond's line from the PTS "Bottoms Up" (he should have spoke it louder and with more expressions). The way it was directed is the faulty aspect, just like Quantum of Solace's was the editing and the cinematography. Back to Swann, to tell you the truth, I liked her better as Sabine Moreau, the assassin from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Seems like confident and silent characters suit her better. At least to me, judging by my point of view.

    @ClarkDevlin, I'll say this, she was indeed awesome in MI-GP.

    RE: the scene in question, I found it a little overplayed as well, but accepted it because Bond says "you're in shock" or something like that, which sort of made it understandable. Connery Bond would have probably given her a slap or something to shake her out of it.

    I have to agree with this, too. I do remember Bond slapping Paris Carver (then Harmsway) in the first draft for Tomorrow Never Dies, when she got to be hysterical. Funny how it was done in reverse later on.

    I did not know that about the original TND script. I have always felt that scene was a mistake and that the Bond I know would have grabbed her hand first before it made contact. A watershed moment for me. He got slapped in TWINE as well, and again, I thought he should have caught the hand.

    I suspect it was an allusion to Natalia's reaction to Bond after he saved them from being blown up in the statue graveyard in GE. And I thought it was done well.

    That's Barbara Broccoli for you. ;)
