with the chief of staff...

and wants to see you immediately.

- I'll be right back.

- I can hardly wait.

Oh, haven't you forgotten something?

Oh. Well, as M's away--

Ah, there you are, 007.

Minister, Chief of Staff.

Are you aware

of our ATAC system, 007?

to launch ballistic missiles.

Five days ago, our spy ship,

St. Georges was sunk...

Or be killed.

Take him away.

Whoever you are, you've outstayed

your welcome. Come on.

- Well, I hope you have a car.

- This way.


- Who are you?

- He killed my parents.

The Havelocks?

How did you know

where Gonzales was?

Through a detective agency.

What were you doing there?

I'm afraid we're being
