50 of Our Favorite James Bond Quotes

Everyone’s favorite spy franchise turns 50 next month. To commemorate five decades of James Bond, MGM is releasing a 22-film Blu-ray set tomorrow that 007 fanatics won’t want to miss. The expansive collection coincides with Sam Mendes’ Skyfall (in UK theaters on October 26 and stateside November 9), starring Daniel Craig who returns to the iconic role of James Bond. A bleach-blonde Javier Bardem plays the gentleman spy’s adversary, and Bond girls Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris join him.

The British Secret Service agent is known for his sophisticated style, cool gadgets, and daring international exploits — with a bevy of unique villains and beautiful women. While MI6 is busy sipping martinis and racing across country in his Aston Martin DB5, he’s always equipped with a cheeky one-liner to set the scene. Six actors delivered Bond’s dry comebacks, and we’ve featured some of the best past the break. Bond is known for his post-mortem puns, but 007 took every opportunity to make a memorable — and often groan-worthy — statement. It’s all in good fun. Celebrate with us, and check out 50 of our favorite James Bond one-liners, below.
