Trivia

A promotional leaflet used to promote the film in Japan headlined the "Seven rules to receive 00 status". The MI6 fansite has it translated as: "1) You don't fear death, and won't give in to torture. 2) You have Olympic level shooting skills. 3) ... ...


Quotes

James Bond: It was worth it to discover his "tell".
Mathis: What'd you mean "tell"?
James Bond: The twitch he has to hide when he bluffs.
Vesper Lynd: Bluffs? He had the best hand.


Goofs

While Bond is pumping Solange for information, she receives a phone call from Alex Dimitrios saying he will be on the last flight from Nassau to Miami. Bond then unceremoniously dumps her, leaves the beach condo and catches the same flight. It would be a relatively small aircraft flying the short distance from the Bahamas to Miami and let's face facts, both Bond and Dimitrios would probably be flying first class. Regardless, it's extremely unlikely Dimitrios would not have spotted Bond - who had just robbed him of his beloved Aston Martin DB5 only hours earlier.

There are several possible explanations for this. If this flight was a small aircraft, it might not even have a first class (a Delta CRJ200, for example, does not have a formal first class area - just "economy comfort" seats; and JetBlue doesn't have first class on any of its flights). Since Bond secured a seat on the flight at the last minute, he may have had to get a coach seat against his will. He might have even gotten a coach seat deliberately to avoid running into Dimitrios. It's also possible that the "last plane to Miami" didn't leave for a few hours and there were a few flights that left before that (Bond wouldn't have been able to follow Dimitrios until the last flight). It's also possible (although unlikely) that Bond took a connecting flight.
