Nobody knows where he is|or what he looks like.

So I think it's fair to assume|that he has the edge on you.

Wouldn't you agree? That's all, 007.

If I found him first, sir,

that might change the situation.

Dramatically, wouldn't you say?

Good day, Bond.

Moneypenny, Fairbanks.

- Alaska.|- No. Bill Fairbanks, 002.

Oh, poor Bill.

- I miss him.|- The Man with the Golden Gun didn't.

Officially that was never confirmed.

Where was 002 when it happened?

Beirut, '69.

In a cabaret with a lady called Saida.

Beirut, hm?

Moneypenny,|you are better than a computer.

In all sorts of ways.

But you never take advantage of them.

- Miss Moneypenny.|- Yes, sir.

Oh, just one moment, darling.

Yes, James?

Why wasn't Scaramanga|confirmed as the killer?

Because they couldn't find the bullet!





Good evening.|My name is Bond. James Bond.

Your dancing is superb.

- Merci.

And you are very handsome.

Well, I don't usually intrude like this,|but I... I believe we had a mutual friend.

- Bill Fairbanks.|- Fairbanks?


I am told you were with him

when he was rather, er...|rudely interrupted.

Ah, "mais oui" - Bill!

What a terrible night. I will never forget it.

- Did you see who shot him?|- No, I was in his arms.

- My eyes were closed.|- At least he died happy.

The bullet went through him.

- Through his back and ended up there?|- No, no, through his neck.

I take it out of the wall|before the police arrive.

And now it is my lucky charm.

I never dance without it.

I'm sure Bill would have loved that.

But let us forget the past.

Mm! I was hoping you'd say that.

Are you staying long in Beirut?

Oh, it depends.

Clumsy of me.

You really do have|a magnificent abdomen.

Oh, my perfumes! No!

I've lost my charm!

Not from where "I'm" standing.
