    You're not alone, ol' boy. But, even Babs wouldn't go that far... ;)

    Don't worry. I imagine it will be short lived. :D

    Well she does seem to have a preference for the vertically challenged chaps.

    Yes DAF has great dialogue. Memorable, witty, funny, hilarious.
    I always thought that myself. Some of the dialogue is clever, witty and far from being for 9 year olds. Probably the best of all the films for one liners.

    Anything slightly funny here will pass for a 9 year old thingy material. It's what I call unwarranted and irrelevant snobbery. ;)

    Late to the party, and having never seen John Wick prior, I must say that I share the opinion of @LeonardPine re: the nightclub scene. Was waiting for it to end.

    @echo, I have never understood the criticism re: Craig and humour. From his very first film, to his last, he has always had a dry, sardonic wit. The only time I felt they were being a little cutesy, at times, was in SKYFALL.
    DC is amazing when he's being snobbish (from saying he hoped Vesper gave her parents hell for naming her); to the dark humour in the LeChiffre torture sequence; to mocking Mathis in QoS (he's already forgotten)... DC handles that type of humour with ease and coolness.

    There has always been humour in the DC era.

    Dare I say it, but the 'humour' in the car chase of SP is certainly not what I would call dry sardonic wit. There was some of this in QOS and SF but none so egregious as that in the car chase.

    Thanks @IncompetentHenchman

    Cannot for the life of me understand the love for this tedious p.o.s

    You seem to forget that it was an "independent" and "tough" woman from the '70s talking... Did you expect an upper class behaviour from everyone in the '70s?

    No. Just highlighting the "clever and witty" dialogue.....

    Yes, you got me on that one.
    I was thinking more along the lines of Blofeld and Bond's dialogue, although Tiffany did get a good line which was something about 'The 3 pigs guarding the big bad wolf'.

    Also Wint & Kidd get some humdingers.

    It really does have some exceptional dialogue.

    There were many clever and witty lines in DAF, you just picked one of the few that weren't.

    "I'm afraid you caught me with more than my hands up."
    "Like any sensible animal she's threatening only when she's threatened."
    "Providing the collars and cuffs match..."

    And that's only three examples, so far.

    DAF is my least favourite film on the series, but every Bond film has its fair share of witty dialogue. That goes without saying.

    Same here. It's at the bottom of my list. But, it's undeniable the dialogues are very witty and clever indeed.

    Bond: The wine is quite excellent. Although for such a grand meal I would have expected a claret.

    Mr. Wint: But of course. Unfortunately our cellar is poorly stocked with clarets.

    James Bond: Mouton Rothschild IS a claret. And, I've smelled that aftershave before; and both times I've smelled a rat.


    James Bond: (about diamonds) Well, hardest substance found in nature, they cut glass, suggest marriage, I suppose they replaced the dog as the girl's best friend. That's about it.
    M: Refreshing to hear that there is one subject you're not an expert on!


    Bond (talking to a rat) Well one of us smells like a tart's handkerchief. And I'm afraid it's me old boy.

    Leiter: I give up. I know the diamonds are in the body, but where?
    Bond: Alimentary, Dr. Leiter...

    Goon: The stiff..er deceased back there. Your brother?
    Bond: Yes, it was.
    Goon: I got a brudder
    Bond: Small world.

    I do like the 'Plenty O'Toole' line

    Its just the whole film has a jokey tone that coming after the Flemingesque OHMSS just makes you realize what could have been.

    Needless to say DAF is bottom of my Bond pile

    Love Barry's score though.

    Agreed. I'm not a fan of the film's tone. I mean, the MacGuffin is great, but the way the story is paced and written, with the lackluster action and class, it's just too 1970s. And the worst part of the '70s.

    The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker on the other hand...

    :)) Now, that's very witty AND funny!

    There is one piece of dialogue in DAF that I like: "Good morning gentlemen, Acme pollution inspection. We're cleaning up the world and though this was a suitable starting point."


    Otherwise DAF is exceptional alright, exeptionly bad.

    DAF has some classic memorable lines thank's to Tom Mankiewicz's wit.
    I'll take "Named after your father perhaps?" over "you know what I can do with my little finger" any day.

    The complete dialogue with Tiffany at her apartment is priceless, better than all 4 Craig movies combined dialogue wise.

    Bond: Is Mr Case not at home?
    Tiffany: There is no Mr Case. The T is for Tiffany.
    Bond: Tiffany Case? Definitely distinctive.
    Tiffany: I was born there, on the first floor, while my mother was looking for a wedding ring.
    Bond: I'm glad for your sake it wasn't Van Cleef and Arpels.

    I love the script for DAF and Connery is palpably relishing every line he delivers. DAF has the best score Barry after OHMSS too. Always a guilty pleasure for me this film.
  • Posts: 11,486
    Even though the plot and caper is kind of a mixed bag- DAF is one I actually enjoy more than some of the more favored Bonds.

    Yes, this is my favourite dialogue in the film. Up until the Brosnan era, DAF was my least favourite Bond film. I don't dislike it but I never thought that it was up there with the rest of them, that is, until the Brosnan films hit the screen. I have always enjoyed the dialogue though.

    To me, DAF suffers from a bad casting of Blofeld, a dragging finale and the over-the-edge henchmen.

    It was all a bit "into to face" for my taste. But I agree to the witty lines and I like the overall plot I must say. If it would be played down a bit more plus a better finale it would rank much higher for me. Many classic Bond lines from this movie for sure!
