Octopussy
Movie Quote Quiz

James Bond: Well, I must say you've become more beautiful everyday.
Miss Moneypenny: I'm over here.
James Bond: Oh, of course you are.
Miss Moneypenny: And this is Miss Penelope Smallbone - my new assistant.

General Anatoly Gogol: My government categorically denies the incident ever occurred.

Octopussy: Who is he?
Kamal Kahn: Englishman. Likes eggs, preferably Fabergé, and dice, preferably loaded.

M: Remember, 007, you're on your own.
James Bond: Well, thank you, sir. That's a great comfort.

Kamal Khan: Spend the money quickly, Mister Bond.

Octopussy: A paid assassin.
James Bond: When I kill it is on the specific orders of my Government.

James Bond: Let's put it this way, up to now you are the least lethal and, by far, the prettiest of Kamal's friends that I've come across.
Magda: Thank you.
James Bond: So, does he have a proposition for me or - do you?
Magda: He suggests trade. The egg - for you life.
James Bond: Well, I heard the price of eggs was going up, but, isn't that a little high?

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Bond chases Kahn following the battle at Octopussy's mansion. In the short time it takes to run to a nearby plane, it turns from pitch darkness to bright sunshine.

Trivia: The American Air Base in Germany where Bond disables the atomic bomb was actually an American base in England. Look closely and you'll see the painted stop signals on the left side of the road in some scenes.

More trivia for Octopussy

Question: Was Kristina Wayborn's descent from the balcony (in which she tips herself backwards and slides down using her sari as a rope) really carried out as shown? I would have thought that she should plummet to the ground much faster - too fast to be sure of landing feet first - and risk a broken bone or more. Are we to assume that Bond girls have magical powers or that the sequence was slowed down for dramatic effect?

Answer: Of course it didn't happen as shown; that would be impossible and highly dangerous. Tricky camera angles, safety equipment, and carefully choreogrphed stunt work helped make this appear like one, continuous fluid motion.
