The name is Bond… James Bond.

With secret agent 007 celebrating his 50th anniversary this year, it is safe to say we are all familiar with the dangerously dashing spy who is arguably represented as the epitome of modern masculinity.

To celebrate the release of Skyfall, here’s 10 of his best one-liners;

10. “Well, I’m an early riser myself”

A View To A Kill (1985)

Roger Moore as James Bond

Whether you’re a Bond-o-holic or you’ve only seen one of the well-known spy flicks, it is fair to say  the screenplays (especially the earlier ones) have ‘innuendo’ scribbled all over… As James Bond also knows how to handle his puns…

In ‘A View To A Kill’ (the last of Roger Moore’s performances as Bond), he is greeted and escorted by villainous vixen Jenny Flex (played by actress/model Alison Doody) at psychopathic Zorin’s (Christopher Walken) French château for the horse sale.

With the subject of horse-riding dominating the present scenes, Bond is intrigues by Jenny’s riding habits…

James Bond: “Well my dear, I take it you spend quite a lot of time in the saddle.”

Jenny Flex: “Yes, I love an early morning ride.”

James Bond: “Well, I’m an early riser myself.”

It is clear that Mr. Bond is insinuating that he is quite the… erm… stallion… himself. I’m sure his eagerness to be ridden suggests he is aware of Jenny’s dominating nature, as he points out he is more than happy to rise to the sporting occasion…
