Dr. No Lust

Lust

BOND: Yes. Tell me, Miss Trench, do you play any other games?

Is that a Beretta in his pocket, or his Bond just happy to see Sylvia Trench?

MONEYPENNY: You never take me to dinner looking like this, James. You never take me to dinner. Period.

BOND: I would, you know. Only M would have me court-martialed for illegal use of government property.

MONEYPENNY: Flattery will get you nowhere. But don't stop trying.

Moneypenny only gets one scene in Dr. No, but she makes the best of her time establishing her character as one locked in a never-ending game of flirtation with James Bond.

SYLVIA: I changed into something more comfortable. Oh, I hope I did the right thing.

BOND: Oh, you did the right thing, but you picked the wrong moment.

Bond doesn't let bad timing get in the way of him and a beautiful woman. Since he's in such a hurry to get to his plane, we have to wonder if he got his 007 nickname for a reason…

BOND: Forgive me. I thought I was invited up here to admire the view.

Bond surprises Miss Taro by showing up alive at her bungalow. She had set a trap for him and expected him to die, but he survived. We've heard that after surviving a deadly encounter, a person might find him- or herself aroused. Bond is definitely wanting to, um, blow off some steam after his life-or-death chase.

HONEY: What are you doing here, looking for shells?

BOND: No, I'm just looking.

She sees seashells by the seashore, but Bond only sees what's in Honey's bikini top. They're not conch shells.

BOND: Well, we can swim, or, er...

HONEY: Or what?

BOND: Come here.

Bond's "reward" for averting a missile crisis and escaping from Dr. No's exploding lair with his life turns out to be a romp in a rowboat with Honey. We can't imagine there's any other prize a man like James Bond would rather claim.
