On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Other mistake: In the bobsled chase, Blofeld arms a grenade, which drops to the floor of his sled, where it rolls around with every turn. He arms and throws a second grenade onto the track, where it is detonated by Bond's sled. The original armed grenade loose in Blofeld's sled never detonates, even when that sled crashes.

Suggested correction: He never arms a second grenade, he picks up the one he drops and that's the one he throws at Bond. There is only ever one grenade.

Other mistake: As the assault on Piz Gloria begins and the helicopters approach the facility, on the right of the screen one seems to be hovering near the helipad as another passes behind it. The helicopter in front fades to a slightly different position as the one passing it disappears and reappears several meters ahead. On the left of the screen the third helicopter appears out of thin air. (This was obviously caused by a dissolve effect, but since the sound effects are constant there doesn't seem to be any indication that a visible edit or time shift was intended for this scene, so it's a mistake).

Audio problem: When Bond is drowning the attacker on the beach, his head is submerged underwater, yet we can hear him grunting and moaning, as if his head was above water.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is forced to get into the car outside the hotel, the car's roof is down and secured with a buttoned-down cover. However, during the ride the roof suddenly closes automatically although the cover was never taken off. (00:19:40)

Continuity mistake: After Bond has knocked out Che for good, Che's position changes between shots. Especially his legs are in a different position in the wide-angle shots to the shot in which Bond has walked up to him. (00:14:40)

Sir Hilary Bray: Our methods are very exacting. We never like to speak until we're absolutely certain that there can be no possibility of error on our side or... forgery on anyone else's.
James Bond: I hope I can live up to your high standards.

Question: When Bond saves Tracey in the beginning and she drives off he comments "This never happened to the other fellow". I know this is a joking reference to Sean Connery, but what is Bond supposed to mean within the context of the film? Connery references aside, why would he be saying this?

Answer: It's an entirely intentional aside to the audience, the one occasion in the entire Bond series where the so-called 'fourth wall' (i.e. the cinema screen itself) is broken. As such, within the context of the film itself, it doesn't really have much of a meaning.
