Trivia: When Bond meets Agent Fields at the airport in Bolivia, he says "But of course you are" after she introduces herself to him. This line has been said in two other Bond films, by Sean Connery in "Diamonds are Forever" and by Roger Moore in "A View to a Kill".

Trivia: When James Bond is handling a metal case over the counter, we can see a man reading a newspaper whilst sitting in a green armchair. This man is the producer Michael G. Wilson.

Trivia: According to writer Paul Haggis, he completed the script of the film only two hours before the 2007-2008 Writer's Guild Strike began.

Trivia: Throughout the whole film, the phrase "Quantum of Solace" is never spoken once, nor even seen as written text.

Factual error: During the boat chase scene, Bond throws a grappling hook/anchor from the old boat he is driving onto the deck of the rubber boat "riding" his. The rubber boat is then violently yanked off of Bond's boat and crashes. This makes no sense. For the rubber boat to be yanked off that way, the other end of the anchor line would have to be tied to something stationary. However, the other end of the line is just lying in Bond's boat. There's even a shot of it sitting there.

More quotes from Quantum of Solace

Question: Saw the film once in the movies and now on DVD. Still can't figure this out. Bond follows Camille to the dock and watches from a distance as Dominic talks to General Medrano about using Camille, then killing her. Then Camille (not knowing her fate, only knowing that she wants to kill the General) leaves on a boat with Medrano. As the boat leaves, Bond suddenly realizes that he must get Camille away from the General and goes through a series of very dangerous moves on the water to kidnap her away from him. The question: why? Bond could not possibly have heard Dominic's remarks about killing her. Bond's sudden decision to steal Camille away from the General makes no sense.

Chosen answer: Remember just before that scene? Bond gets in to the car with Camille (Camille thinks that Bond is Slate) and looks through that attache case and finds a picture of Camille, with a gun, and tells her "I think someone wants you dead". So Bond and Camille both knew that Dominic was planning her death, but she had to go through Dominic to get to General Medrano.
