For Your Eyes Only

Character mistake: At the boat where Bond talks with Colombo for the first time, Colombo has to convince Bond that Kristatos is the bad guy. Colombo takes two drinks and wants to toast with Bond. Bond will trust Colombo and says, 'Yassou' which means 'Hello' instead of what he should say, 'Jamas' which means 'Cheers'.

Character mistake: When discussing where to look for the St. Georges, and Melina tells that her father saw a diving bell, Bond reasons: "Diving bell - oil exploration - Christatos" But diving bells are not used for oil exploration.

Jacob La Cour

Character mistake: As Bond offers Ms. Brink to help her if she helps them, she answers "Ja, mein Herr Bond" meaning, "Yes, Mister Bond." It should simply be "Ja, Herr Bond." The way she says it would roughly translate to "Yes, my Lord Bond."

Character mistake: When Bond contacts the Chief of Staff after identifying Locque on the Identigraph, Bond reads his bibliography to him. The first appearance of the word bibliography is misspelled "BIBLOGRAPHY", whereas the second appearance near the bottom of the screen is spelled correctly.

Character mistake: In the ice-hockey scene Bibi says: "They say that he is a defector from East Germany." That fits very poorly with the statement during the biathlon scene, where he is referred to as "The East German Champion".

Suggested correction: Bibi doesn't say "He's a defector from East Germany", she says "They say he's going to defect from East Germany." In other words, she's talking about rumours regarding an event that hasn't happened yet, and may not even happen.

Revealing mistake: Just after Loque runs over the countess in his dune buggy, Bond runs over to her, kneels beside her and takes her pulse. She blinks.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: It is also vaguely alluded to in The World is Not Enough. When Electra asks Bond, "tell me, Mr. Bond, ha- have you ever lost a loved one." And it's written all over his face, so to speak.
