        Whoever she was, it must have scared the Octopussy out of her.

      When you're being helped with your defection in an unusual way, don't ask how many times it's been done before. You may not like the answer.

        I'm not a musical expert, but I would think that a bullet hole in a Stradivarius cello would permanently damage it beyond playability. At the very least, the hole itself would be fairly noticeable when the instrument's played by the featured cellist.

          In beginning: See an agent looks like Roger Moore, nope not Dalton. See an agent that looks like George Lazenby, nope not Dalton. Third agent turns around, it's Dalton. What grand entrance for Timothy Dalton as Bond! (my favorite intro for a new Bond actor)

            And done quite deliberately, too, to destroy your expectations of which one really is Bond.

                  This was the last Bond film to be named after an Ian Fleming short story or novel until "Casino Royale", 18 years later.

                    Being inside a Soviet base in the middle of Afghanistan is not what Bond would define as "freedom".

                      Only someone of Bond's precision and ingenuity could successfully fake an assassination the way he did here.

                          I wonder why Bond didn't tell M the same thing he told Saunders: He suspected that Kara wasn't a real assassin, and that's why he didn't kill her. Instead, this whole "I had to make a split-second decision; it was instinct" excuse nearly got him an unasked-for two weeks vacation in addition to being pulled off the mission.

                          Could they have found a bigger ham to play Felix Leiter in this film? At least his screen time was limited.

                            All you have to do to impersonate someone of any nationality is use a false accent.

                              The top of you car sliding off of the bottom section is due to salt corrosion.

                                That blond assassin liked listening to same song over and over again.

                                  If the regular milkman has the flu, you can bet the substitute is a spy/assassin, especially entering a "secure" area as such.

                                      It's damn stupid to reach for your watch and press the panic button in plain sight. Bond will see it and pistol whip your tummy.

                                                  Gibraltar is so boring. There's nothing there but playboys and tennis pros.

Do not shoot his foot or anywhere but the shield. Surely nothing bad will happen to you when you run out of bullets and it's his turn and his 80 bullets.
