Plot hole: Bond makes a huge tactical error after diving to the St. Georges. He knows the Russians and their operatives are after the ATAC. The ATAC itself is expendable to Britain, since it has a self-destruct mechanism that under proper procedure would have been set off when the ship sank. So why is Bond trying to retrieve it? Because he disarms the self-destruct, he actually allows Kristatos to get his hands on it, forcing Bond to track it down again and, to stop the Russians from getting it, HE DESTROYS IT! So why doesn't Bond, instead of disarming the self destruct, set a timed charge or toss a grenade in the room to destroy the ATAC while it's at the bottom of the sea? The answer is, of course, that if Bond destroys the ATAC before the bad guys can get at it, the movie's over. Even so, at the end, when Bond finally does destroy the ATAC, he tells Gogol it's "detente. You don't have it. I don't have it." Clever line, but it reinforces the fact that the British don't need it. They can build another one.
With the help of Columbo, Bond and Melina get up to Kristatos's hideout. Eric Kriegler is killed, and Columbo stabs Kristatos, killing him. General Gogol shows up to retrive the ATAC but Bond throws it off the cliff. Melina and bond go for a midnight swim, then Tanner Q and Frederick Gray contact him from a radio to his watch. Bond takes it off and Melina's parrot replied to the watch and the persume it's Bond. They connect to the Prime Minister's house. She thanks them and asks him (doesn't know that she's talking to a parrot)for to repay her and parrot replies "Give us a kiss." After what has been heard, Gray disconnects the communication and asks what's going on. the parrot picks up the watch and throws it into the see
Question: Is this the only Bond film that features any references to Tracy Bond (other than the given "On Her Majesty's...")?
