One day, a Lotus Esprit Turbo will be mine.

Do you reject Roger Moore and all his works?

FTA: Known as "Wet Nellie" on the set of the film, the fully operational submarine car was among the contents of a storage unit in Long Island, New York

Does it come with the missile, land mine, and ink dispenser?

Fun fact concerning the micro respirator used in Thunderball.  Apparently a spy agency (I forget which) thought that it was real and asked how it worked.  The props department had to inform them that sadly, it didn't work and the actor/stuntmen all had to hold their breaths.

The CIA thought that most of the gadgets on the old 'Get Smart' show were real, and kept investigating the show makers cause they thought the show was giving away secrets.

The CIA now has a shrine at their HQ dedicated to the show, I believe it's viewable from their website, or use to be.

I wouldn't go quite that far, but it did introduce one of the best Bond movie henchmen of all time, Jaws.

Best. Bond. Movie. EVAR!

Eh...best Roger Moore Bond film, I'll give you that. Still takes a back seat to some of Connery's, and one of Craig's.

A thousand times THIS! Barbara Bach is pretty hot, but Caroline Munro should have been the female lead.

For Your Eye's Only was the best Moore film -- by far the least campy, no silly plot to destroy the world.

True, but "The Man With the Golden Gun" had Christopher Lee as the villain.

Agreed. Plus the bond girl wasn't pathetically out of her depths. She seemed legitimately tough and pissed.

BB in the spy who loved me seemed about as viable a spy as denise richardson was as a nuclear physicist.
