- Valentin Zukovsky: Still, ruthless...” (continue) (continue reading)
- James Bond: Why?

“We're both orphans, James. But while your parents had the luxury of dying in a climbing accident, mine survived the British betrayal and Stalin's execution squads.

- James Bond: Excellent, just the thing for unwinding after a rough day at the office.
- Q: Need I...” (continue) (continue reading)
