Moonraker --> Bond following the girl in white in the jungle

I enjoyed Roger's comments on that scene, in an interview he did last year with the Australian film critic, Bill Collins. He said that the blonde girl had one eye that looked in a different direction to the other. Lewis Gilbert kept asking her to look Roger in the eye. Roger said he took Lewis to one side and told him...

"She is looking me in the eye. With one of hers"

MOONRAKER - Bond rescues Manuela from Jaws in Rio

This is quite an underrated scene, and I wish they had built the suspense up even further by having Jaws (in his costume) edging towards Manuela even more slowly.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service - A tie between Bond's "unveiling" in the PTS and Bond reuniting with Tracy at the ice rink (I love the way the camera pans up to her face!).

Diamonds Are Forever - Bond/Peter Franks fight.

Live And Let Die - "Ah, Mr. Bond, we've been expecting you! Two drinks for our guests!" This sets the stage for nearly every Bond parody from here on out!

The Spy Who Loved Me - PTS.
