  1. 10

    I thought Christmas only comes once a year

    From: World Is Not Enough (1999).

    By Pierce Brosnan, whilst making love to Dr. Christmas Jones (Denise Richards).

  2. 9

    This never happened to the other fellow

    From: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969).

    By George Lazenby in the pre-credits sequence after being attacked by several assailants, the fourth wall is broken when he quips the above.

  3. 8

    More of a problem eliminator

    From: Licence To Kill (1989).

    By Timothy Dalton, famous for being the serious Bond and stripping his films of all puns, he still delivered this gem after being asked if he was a problem solver.

  4. 7

    He had a lot of guts

    From: On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969).

    By George Lazenby again, after a bad guy falls into a wood chipper and is spat out into the snow. One of the daftest lines in a Bond movie.

  5. 6

    Oh I’m sorry, that last hand almost killed me

    From: Casino Royale (2006).

    By Daniel Craig as deadpans with a completely straight face after almost dying from poisoning while playing poker.

  6. 5

    Yes, but my martini’s still dry

    From: Never Say Never Again (1983).

    By Sean Connery, this 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.' What follows is his quick-fire response.

  7. 4

    All those feathers and he still can’t fly

    From: The Spy Who Loved Me (1977).

    By Roger Moore.

    Connery may have been the original, but Roger Moore in The Spy Who Loved Me was the master of the one-liner. After a bad guy drives through a lorry containing chickens and falls to his death over a cliff (with feathers flying everywhere), Moore looks over with a trademarked raised eyebrow and to make his remarks.

  8. 3

    I think he got the point

    From: Thunderball (1965).

    By Sean Connery with a one liner from the classic Bond outing. After harpooning a would-be assassin Bond exclaims the above.

  9. 2

    As long as the carpet matches the drapes

    From: Diamonds Are Forever (1971).

    By Sean Connery while admiring Tiffany Case’s change of hair colour, she asks, 'Don’t you like red heads?'

  10. 1

    Keeping the British end up Sir

    From: The Spy Who Loved Me (1977).

    Starts (Sir Frederick Grey): 'Bond, what do you think you’re doing!'

    By Roger Moore, once again he shows all of them how it’s done with this all-time classic.
