James Bond: Why is it that people who can’t take advice always insist on giving it?
James Bond: Dry Martini.
Bartender: Oui, monsieur.
James Bond: Wait… three measures of Gordon’s; one of vodka; half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it over ice, and add a thin slice of lemon peel.
Bartender: Yes, sir.
Tomelli: You know, I’ll have one of those.
Infante: So will I.
Felix Leiter: My friend, bring me one as well, keep the fruit.
Le Chiffre: [annoyed] That’s it? Hm? Anyone want to play poker now?
Felix Leiter: Someone’s in a hurry.
James Bond: I’m sorry. That last hand… nearly killed me.
James Bond: I have a dinner jacket.
Vesper Lynd: There are dinner jackets and dinner jackets; this is the latter. And I need you looking like a man who belongs at that table.
James Bond: How?… It’s tailored.
Vesper Lynd: I sized you up the moment we met.
The Aston Martin DBS V12 is a high performance GT sports car from the UK manufacturer Aston Martin. Aston has used the DBS name once before on their 1967-72 grand tourer coupe.
The modern car replaces the 2004 Aston Martin Vanquish S as the flagship of the marque. It was officially unveiled at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on 2007-08-16 and delivery began on 2008 Q1.
The DBS was first seen in the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale, the first film in which Bond was played by Daniel Craig, as a result of a product placement deal with Aston Martin’s parent company at the time, Ford.
Casino Royale reboots the series, establishing a new timeline and narrative framework not meant to precede or succeed any previous Bond film,which allows the film to show a less experienced and more vulnerable Bond.
The three-piece suit worn by James Bond at the end of the film is a navy version of the gray suit worn by Sean Connery in Goldfinger (1964).
In both Casino Royale and Skyfall (2012), Bond tells his partners Carter and Eva respectively, to ‘stop touching your ear’ when working undercover and using an earpiece.
Daniel Craig is the first actor to play James Bond who is younger than the series itself.
