10. Pierce Brosnan in The World Is Not Enough

Whilst making love to Dr. Christmas Jones; ‘I thought Christmas only comes once a year’.

9. George Lazenby in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

In the pre-credits sequence after being attacked by several assailants, the fourth wall is broken when Lazenby quips; ‘This never happened to the other fellow.’

8. Timothy Dalton in Licence To Kill

Famous for being the serious Bond and stripping his films of all puns, Dalton still delivered this gem after being asked if he was a problem solver. His reply?; ‘More of a problem eliminator.’

7. George Lazenby again, with one of the daftest lines in a Bond Movie

After a bad guy falls into a wood chipper and is spat out into the snow; ‘He had a lot of guts.’

Craig deadpans with a completely straight face after almost dying from poisoning while playing poker; ‘Oh I’m sorry, that last hand almost killed me.’

5. Sean Connery in Never Say Never Again

It may not be an official Bond but the quote is priceless and delivered with total panache from the original 007. After water skiing into him ‘accidentally’, Fatima Blush exclaims ‘Oh dear, I’ve made you all wet.’ The quick-fire response: ‘Yes, but my martini’s still dry.’

4. Roger Moore in The Spy Who Loved Me

Connery may have been the original, but Moore was the master of the one-liner.

A classic one liner from a classic Bond outing. After harpooning a would-be assassin Bond exclaims; ‘I think he got the point.’

2. Sean Connery in Diamonds Are Forever
