Altman -- Tomorrow never lies : "I'm putting on a little scientific demonstration in Iceland this weekend. Perhaps you could join us?" / Edward Gross -- Bond, James Bond : "The name is Bond, James Bond" -- The road to Bond : "You seem to have this nasty habit of surviving." -- The sixties : the Doctor is in : "No, Mister Bond, I expect you to die..." -- "This never happened to the other fella" : "You can shoot me!

See that some harm comes to him." -- The eighties : "I hope we're going to have some gratuitous sex and violence around here again." -- The nineties : golden years : "Christ, I miss the Cold War."-- The 2000s : Bourne again : "You think of women as disposable pleasures, reather than meaningul pursuits.
