You Only Live Twice (1967) Poster

Sean Connery: James Bond



  • Blofeld : James Bond. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Ernst Stavro Blofeld. They told me you were assassinated in Hong Kong.

    James Bond : Yes, this is my second life.

    Blofeld : You only live twice, Mr. Bond.

  • Helga Brandt : [Bond is captured by Helga Brandt]  I've got you now.

    James Bond : Well, enjoy yourself.

    [Brandt slaps him] 

  • [Being bathed by Tanaka's women] 

    Tiger Tanaka : You know what it is about you that fascinates them, don't you? It's the hair on your chest. Japanese men all have beautiful bare skin.

    James Bond : Japanese proverb say, "Bird never make nest in bare tree."

  • [about to make love to Helga Brandt] 

    James Bond : Oh the things I do for England.

  • Tiger Tanaka : It can save your life, this cigarette.

    James Bond : You sound like a commercial.

  • Blofeld : The firing power inside my crater is enough to annihilate a small army. You can watch it all on TV. It's the last program you're likely to see.

    James Bond : Well, if I'm gonna be forced to watch television, may I smoke?

    Blofeld : Yes. Give him his cigarettes. It won't be the nicotine that kills you, Mr. Bond.

  • [Bond has just sent Blofeld's henchman into the water. The piranhas immediately attack him] 

    James Bond : Bon appetit!

  • [Choosing a masseuse] 

    James Bond : Well, I'll just settle for this little old lady here.

    Tiger Tanaka : Good choice, she's very sexyful.

  • Tiger Tanaka : My friend, now you take your first civilized bath.

    James Bond : Really?

    [Bond is surrounded by four young Japanese women wearing only white bras and panties] 

    James Bond : Oh, I like the plumbing.

    Tiger Tanaka : Place yourself entirely in their hands, my dear Bond-san. Rule number one: is never do anything yourself - when someone else can do it for you.

    James Bond : And number two?

    Tiger Tanaka : Rule number two: in Japan, men come first, women come second.

    James Bond : I just might retire to here.

  • Tiger Tanaka : Permit me to introduce myself. I am Tanaka. Please call me Tiger.

    James Bond : If you're Tanaka, then how do you feel about me?

    Tiger Tanaka : [the code response]  I... love you.

    James Bond : Well, I'm glad we got that out of the way.

  • Aki : You wouldn't touch that horrible woman, would you?

    James Bond : Oh heaven forbid.

  • [James is in bed with a Ling, a Chinese woman] 

    James Bond : Why do Chinese girls taste different from all other girls?

    Ling : You think we better, huh?

    James Bond : No, just different. Like Peking Duck is different from Russian Caviar. But I love them both.

    Ling : Darling, I give you very best duck.

  • Henderson : [Hands Bond a martini]  Oh, that's stirred, not shaken. That was right, wasn't it?

    James Bond : Perfect. Cheers.

    Henderson : Cheers.

    James Bond : Russian vodka. Well done.

    Henderson : Yeah, I get it from the doorman at the Russian embassy - amongst certain other things.

  • Mr. Osato : You should give up smoking. Cigarettes are very bad for your chest.

    Helga Brandt : Mr. Osato believes in a healthy chest.

    [Bond eyes Helga's breasts] 

    James Bond : Really?

  • James Bond : Do you have any commandos here?

    Tiger Tanaka : I have much, much better. Ninjas. Top-secret, Bond-san. This is my ninja training school.

  • Tiger Tanaka : [discussing Osato Chemicals' supertanker, the Ning Po, which is known to be smuggling rocket fuel]  We shadowed the Ning Po to the outer islands.

    Aki : It was very dark. Hard to see her all the time.

    Tiger Tanaka : But we know she stopped somewhere. Look at these photos.

    [Tiger hands James photos of the Ning Po] 

    Aki : Look at the water line.

    James Bond : [noticing the higher water line of the ship in seperate photos]  You're right. Fully laden here, and empty here.

    James Bond : [getting up]  I want to take a look at the island now. Is Little Nellie here?

    Tiger Tanaka : Yes. And her father.

    [James, Aki, and Tiger enter a nearby garage where an agitated and sweating Q is waiting] 

    James Bond : [sarcastically]  Welcome to Japan, Dad. Is my little girl hot and ready?

    Q : [annoyed]  Look, 007, I've had a long and tiring journey, probably to no purpose, so I'm in no mood for juvenile quips.

  • M : [buzzing intercom]  Miss Moneypenny, give 007 the password we've agreed with Japanese S.I.S.

    MoneyPenny : Yes sir.

    [to Bond] 

    MoneyPenny : We tried to think of something that you wouldn't forget.

    James Bond : Yes?

    MoneyPenny : "I, love, you". Repeat it please, to make sure you get it

    James Bond : Don't worry, I get it.

  • MoneyPenny : Oh, by the way, how was the girl?

    James Bond : Which girl?

    MoneyPenny : The Chinese one we fixed you up with.

    James Bond : Oh, another five minutes, I'd have found out.

    MoneyPenny : She'll never know what she missed.

  • Tiger Tanaka : You like Japanese sake, Mr. Bond? Or, would you prefer a vodka martini?

    James Bond : Oh, no. I like sake. Especially when it's served at the correct temperature: 98.4 degrees fahrenheit like this is.

    Tiger Tanaka : For a European, you are exceptionally cultivated.

  • Tiger Tanaka : Chasing girls will be the end of you, Bond-san. I have told you that before.

    Aki : He didn't chase her! He did it so that I could get away. He wouldn't touch that horrible girl. You wouldn't, would you?

    James Bond : Oh, heaven forbid.

  • James Bond : Is this the only room there is?

    Kissy Suzuki : Yes. That is your bed,

    [points to one side of room] 

    Kissy Suzuki : I shall sleep over there.

    [points to other side of room] 

    James Bond : But we're supposed to be married.

    Kissy Suzuki : Think again, please. You gave false name to priest.

    James Bond : Yes, but we must keep up appearances. We're on our honeymoon.

    Kissy Suzuki : No honeymoon. This is business.

    James Bond : [pushing aside his oyster dinner]  Well, I won't need these.

  • [Coded message to headquarters] 

    James Bond : Little Nelly got a hot reception. Four big shots made improper advances toward her, but she defended her honor with great success.

  • [Bond is about to have his chest waxed so he can pass for Japanese] 

    James Bond : Why don't you just dye the parts that show?

  • Tiger Tanaka : [after Tiger's helicopter drops an enemy car chasing Bond and Aki into the Pacific ocean]  How's that for Japanese efficiency?

    James Bond : Just a drop in the ocean.

  • James Bond : Uggghhh... Siamese vodka?

  • James Bond : Hello, Penny.

    MoneyPenny : You better go right in. You're late, as usual - even from your own funeral.

    James Bond : Well, we corpses have absolutely no sense of timing.

  • James Bond : I'd like you to examine these as soon as possible. They're from Osato's safe.

    Tiger Tanaka : This is an order for naval stores. 500 kilos of butter. 50 containers of lox. What is lox?

    James Bond : Oh, it's American name for smoked salmon. But, it's also the technical name for liquid oxygen - which makes rocket fuel.

  • Tiger Tanaka : [Three young Japanese women giving Bond a bath]  Your English girls would never perform this simple service.

    James Bond : I think I know one or two who might get around to it.

    Tiger Tanaka : Miss Moneypenny, perhaps?

  • James Bond : The last time someone gave me a massage, it was in Hong Kong. But, unfortunately, I had to cut it short. We were rudely interrupted by a couple of gunmen. So, we never got 'round to finishing it.

  • Tiger Tanaka : I have my curiosity, Bond-san. What is little Nellie?

    James Bond : Oh, she's a wonderful girl. Very small. Quite fast. Can do anything. Just your type.

    Tiger Tanaka : A toy helicopter?

    Q : No, it's certainly not a toy!

  • Q : [Showing Bond the improvements to little Nellie, his one-man, open-air, helicopter]  Right. Now, pay attention. Two machine guns, fixed.

    James Bond : Synchronized to what?

    Q : A hundred yards when using incendiaries and high explosives. Two rocket launchers. Forward-firing on either side.

    James Bond : Fine.

    Q : Now, these fire heat-seeking air-to-air missiles - sixty a minute.

    James Bond : Good.

    Q : Flame guns. Two of them. Firing astern.

    James Bond : What range?

    Q : Eighty yards. Two smoke ejectors next door to them. Aerial mines. Now, remember, use them only when directly above target. That's about the lot, I think. You know the rest, don't you?

    James Bond : Yes.

  • James Bond : Hello, Base One. There's nothing here but volcanoes.

  • James Bond : What's the plan for me?

    Tiger Tanaka : First, you become a Japanese. Second, you train hard and quickly to become a ninja - like us. And third, to give you extra special cover - you take a wife.

  • Helga Brandt : A Dom Perignon '59, Mr. Fisher? Are you really sure you won't change your mind?

    James Bond : [Posing as Mr. Fisher]  Well, if you insist.
