HMS Ranger Navigator:
Captain wants to keep 500 feet.
Young officer, HMS Ranger: Maneuvering, Control. Come in shallow to 500 feet.
Young officer, HMS Ranger: Keep 500 feet.
HMS Ranger crewman: 500 feet it is, sir.
When Bond and Jaws are fighting on the train, he breaks a lamp, and uses the live wires to "electrocute" Jaws. Since Bond and Jaws are struggling and their bodies are making contact, Bond would get shocked equally as much as Jaws does.
First opening credit sequence to incorporate specially shot footage of the actor playing James Bond (in this case, Roger Moore).
US network TV broadcasts over the years have handled Bond's shooting of Stromberg differently. ABC Network prints shown in the 1980s show Bond firing twice. The June 2002 showing on ABC edited out all but the first shot. The opening credit sequence was altered by ABC since its first TV airing on November 9, 1980 where the network censored the nude silhouettes by using a section of the opening credit sequence by rolling the film in reverse. Also, the death of Stromberg's assistant has a few seconds removed depicting the shark attack in response to the ABC network airing the Steven Spielberg film Jaws during the Fall 1980 season.
