Oh. In you go.

Don't forget to write.

Good evening, sir.

It happens to be 3am.

When do you sleep, 007?

Never on the firm's time, sir.

Sit down.

Jamaica went off the air tonight,

in the middle of the opening procedure.|We've checked and...

Strangways has disappeared.

So has his secretary.|A new girl. We'd only just sent her out.

Was Strangways on something... special?

He was checking|an enquiry from the Americans.

They complained about interference|with their Cape Canaveral rockets.

They think it comes|from the Jamaica area.

- Does "toppling" mean anything to you?|- A little.

It's throwing the gyroscopic controls|of a guided missile off balance with a...

a radio beam or something.

Five million dollars' worth of missile|aimed at a spot in the South Atlantic,

but finishing up in the Brazilian jungle,|is bad enough.

Now they're gonna try orbiting a rocket|round the moon.

The American CIA sent a man down|to work with Strangways.

- A fellow called Leiter. Do you know him?|- I've heard of him. Never met him.

Has he found out anything important?

Better ask "him". You're booked|on the 7 o'clock plane to Kingston.

That gives you exactly|three hours, 22 minutes.


You'll get a set of background papers|at the airport, in a self-destructor bag.

You can study them during the flight.

I want to know|what's happened to Strangways.


Take off your jacket.

Give me your gun.

Yes, I thought so. This damn Beretta|again. I've told you about this before.

You tell him - for the last time.

Nice and light - in a lady's handbag.

No stopping power.

Any comments, 007?

I disagree, sir.

I've used a Beretta for ten years.|I've never missed with it yet.

Maybe not, but it jammed on your last job|and you spent six months in hospital.

A double-O number means you're|licensed to kill, not get killed.
