quotable -casino royale

Bond: The trouble always is not how to get enough caviar, but how to get enough toast with it.

That line did not make it into the movie but you will find it in the original text. (Fleming, Ian. Casino Royale. New York: Macmillan, 1953. 62.) Casino Royale is a must read if you are a Bond fan (as are Dr. No, Goldfinger and You only Live Twice -the later short stories not so much... complete bibliography here.) The whole cane chair "questioning" scene comes from the book though and much respect to EON Productions for keeping it. (EON = everything or nothing. That sounds like a Bond title itself).
