Cool; I guess that's all the interesting bits? Funny they seemed to be trying to make 'Better make that two' his catchphrase! And is one of the girls topless at 5.30 or is the fuzziness playing tricks on me? :)

Ha, I liked the extended milkman scene, "take this one, it's fresher".

Thanks! This is great!

That version of the gunbarrel and pose was much in line with Bob Simmons circa Dr. No-Goldfinger

This version of TLD has been kicking around Bond sites:


Act 1, Scene 1. High above a sea.
Sir Miles: Honoured soldiers, though to our secular lords our present endeavour be no more than a mere plaything, a bagatelle for gaining that experience held high in our conscience, so from our spring I hold it as a matter of mine honour that thee, furbished with the O's redoubled, will disdain fortune in pursuit and shall cause no discomfort to fall upon me.
(Exeunt three soldiers. A strong wind blows)
Oh a thousand damnations be upon thee!
Act 1, Scene 2. A rock in the sea.
1st Sentry: In truth, sirrah, out of this merriment you are.
2nd Sentry: Cry hold! You live no more.
Act 1, Scene 5. A boat in the sea.
Bored Maiden: Of the life herein I do weary. I seek merely a man who is strong and true, and plays not of the tennis.
(Enter Sir James)
Sir James: I am he who is called Bond, James Bond. To Sir Miles in one hour I must make report. 
Bored Maiden: I prithee, leave me not.
Sir James: Forsooth, one hour shall become two.
Intermission. Maidens dance, a Norseman sings.
Act 2, Scene 1. An opera house.
Saunders: I am Saunders, he who commands Vienna. Your tardiness is reprehensible.
Sir James: Of the essence time holds no sway. Yonder maiden sweet music upon her cello doth make, yet no more sweet than her own fair charms.
Saunders: Thou must take leave of the fairer sex, Double Naught Seven, thine duty precedence must take.
Sir James: To the border thou must make haste, I prithee in what manner?
Saunders: Thy pardon must I crave, unknown to thee shall be my route. Scroll the six-and-twentieth, paper the fifth. Thine understanding I am certain of.
Act 2, Scene 3. A cave.
Old Wizard: To the depths in this swine of base metal must thee journey, or as with borscht shalt thou boil.
Koskov: I know not of swine or borscht or sweetmeats!
Act 2, Scene 4. A carriage.
Saunders: Report must I make of thy shortcomings, Naught Naught Seven.
Sir James: Get thee to Sir Miles and disclose unto him that which pleases thee. Should he but terminate my employ, I shall upon him heap great praise in reciprocation! One endpiece of a flintlock from the other knowest the fair damsel not. Verily, whomsoever she may be, the light of day which survives in her has been sent to flight.
Act 3, Scene 2. Throne room of Sir Miles Messervy.
Sir James: Of thy choice in caviar have I differed, my liege, and in truth the fair damsel doth live still.
Sir Miles: Then, marry, from Hong Kong shall Double Naught Eight be summoned. His pursuance of orders doth exceed thine, whose disposition lends favour to instinct, wherefore Pushkin he knows not. Four-and-ten days of leisure shall be given to thee.
Sir James: Nay!... Sire. If this deed is decreed to come to pass, let me endeavour to make it so.
Act 3, Scene 4. The old wizard's lair.
Old Wizard: In my crystal ball I see the woman you seek, whose humour it is to take the life of men with her thighs.
Moneypenny: Sir James, thine type she most surely ist!
Sir James: Nay, thou art mistaken, my type thou art.
Old Wizard: Thine attention I crave, Naught Naught Seven. For those across the sea I have laboured long and weary, in the creation of this blaster of ghettos.
Moneypenny: 'Twas unknown to me your fondness for the muse, Sir James. I entreat thee, should happenstance in the twilight hour thou be unencumbered, thou should attend my domicile for perusal of my Barry Manilow collection.
Old Wizard: Take care with thine carriage, Naught Naught Seven- new livery it doth have!
Act 5, Scene 4. Another carriage, fashioned by the DB5th Earl of Aston and the Viscount Martin.
Sir James: Verily this modern safety glass doth astound! In truth, installation of those accessories named as optional I have caused.
Lady Kara: To the distant constables thou canst listen- be this witchcraft?
Sir James: Nay, sweet lady, 'tis but an anomaly of the air that surrounds us.
Act 6, Scene 4. A foreign place of amusement.
Sir James: Balloon, I have no quarrel with thee
and yet you in my angry embrace be;
Your inflator I must surely stop
forgive my tightening grip that you must...
Tall German man weeping in background: ajb007/crap
Act 7, Scene 2. A boudoir.
Pushkin: Dost thou call on me with social intent?
Sir James: Lilies of the field should thee have brought. Faith in Koskov have I none, lest thy death be upon thee.
Pushkin: Then die I must.
Act 7, Scene 7. Another boudoir. Lady Kara sits with her cello.
Lady Kara: Sir James, Sir James, wherefore art thou Sir James? 
(Enter Sir James)
Sir James: Lady Kara, 'tis the hour when all deceit laid aside must be. No friend of Georgi's am I; whence Albion, where my duties lie, I journeyed seeking his atonement for the betrayal of all. 'Twas I, none other, that with aim true shot the flintlock from your sweet hands.
Act 8, Scene 2. High above another sea.
Koskov: A thousand pardons, Sir James, my love for thee is boundless, yet the ancients shall proclaim that no sweethearts hath duty.
Sir James: Thou art replete with it, those ancients in my land shall proclaim.
Lady Kara: A fool have I been.
Sir James: No more than I, my lady.
Act 8, Scene 4. A gaol.
Warder: Long and weary have I waited for a captive woman.
Bearded Man: Oh free me from this captivity! Innocent am I!
Warder: Thy death shall await thee in the dawn hour, though shot shall take precedence over the rope.
(He strikes Sir James, who falls)
Warder: To descend I did bid thee not!
(Sir James rises and is struck once more)
Warder: Neither were thou bidden to ascend!
(Sir James overcomes the Warder in battle)
Lady Kara: Oh most magnificent thou art! Our freedom has been granted!
Sir James: Yet in a fortress in a foreign citadel we remain.
Bearded Man: For this boon I thank thee.
Act 9, Scene 3. Still another boudoir.
Lady Kara: Oh fool thou art! Nothing more than a steed's hindermost quarters!
Sir James: Verily shrew, doth thee compare mineself to the posterior of a beast of thy fields!
Act 11, Scene 4. In the lair of a villain.
Koskov: Honoured Pushkin, my delight in our reunion doth know no bounds.
Pushkin: As doth mine, Georgi. To Moscow thou shalt fly- within the satchel of diplomacy!
Sir James: And of the Lady Kara?
Pushkin: Her fate we must discuss.
Act 12, Scene 1. Another opera house.
Sir James: To miss this performance I would not.
Lady Kara: Oh, Sir James!

(Exeunt omnes. Sir James Bond shalt return.)

I think that poor soul has got the leak of 'Spectre' mistaken for 'The Living Daylights'.     *TUT*




Jumping on the band-wagon though, this print of 'TLD' would be super. More Dalton material, the better.

From what I've been told, there seems to be a thread on another Bond board (which I don't visit) where scenes from Bond movies are adapted to Shakespearian language. This is where this comes from, so this isn't really fan fiction.
