Quantum of Solace (2008) Poster

Judi Dench: M



  • M : Ask him about Slate.

    Tanner : She wants to know about Slate.

    James Bond : Slate was a dead end.

    Tanner : He says it was a dead end.

    M : Damn it! He killed him.

  • M : Bond, if you could avoid killing every possible lead, it would be deeply appreciated.

    James Bond : Yes, Ma'am. I'll do my best.

    M : I've heard that before.

  • M : When someone says "We've got people everywhere", you expect it to be hyperbole! Lots of people say that. Florists use that expression. It doesn't mean that they've got somebody working for them inside the bloody room!

  • M : The Americans are gonna be none too pleased.

    James Bond : I promised them Le Chiffre and they got him.

    M : They got his body.

    James Bond : Well, if they wanted his soul, they should have made a deal with a priest.

  • M : You killed a man in Bregenz.

    James Bond : I did my best not to.

    M : You shot him at point blank and threw him off a roof. I would hardly call that showing restraint!

  • James Bond : How much oil did the Americans promise you?

    M : This isn't about oil.

    James Bond : Well, that's good; because, there isn't any.

    M : It's about trust. You said you weren't motivated by revenge.

    James Bond : I'm motivated by my duty.

    M : No. I think you're so blinded by inconsolable rage that you don't care who you hurt. When you can't tell your friends from your enemies, it's time to go.

  • [last lines] 

    M : Bond, I need you back.

    James Bond : I never left.

  • M : Who the hell is this organisation Bond? How can they be everywhere and we know nothing about them!

  • M : It'd be a pretty cold bastard who didn't want revenge for the death of someone he loved.

  • M : We never really know anyone, do we?

  • M : I do need to know, Bond. I need to know that I can trust you.

  • M : What happened to Slate?

    James Bond : I'm not dwelling on the past. I don't think you should either.

    M : You killed him.

  • M : [On the phone]  Bond, are you missing the fact that you killed a member of the Special Branch. I need you to come in.

    James Bond : And I would, but, right now I need to find the man who tried to kill you. Go back to sleep.

  • M : Restrict Bond's movement. Cancel his cards. Put an alert on his passports. All of them.

  • M : I assume you have no regrets.

    James Bond : I don't! What about you?

    M : Of course not. It would be unprofessional.

  • M : Get me the Americans.

  • James Bond : Now, you and I need to see this through.

    M : There's no where to go. There's a capture or kill order out on you.

    James Bond : Who would have done that?

  • M : I don't give a shit about the CIA or their trumped up evidence. He's my agent - and I trust him.

  • M : Find Bond!

  • M : Get Bond.

  • M : Look how well your charm works, James. They'll do anything for you, won't they?
