(woman over tannoy)

Su caballo ha sido el favorito...

...de las ms importantes competiciones.

Don Piquillo tiene cinco aos.

Man, como dije, tiene muchas medallas

ganadas en competiciones.

Alvarado sufri

una cada el ao pasado...

...en las competiciones

de Rio de Janeiro...

...lo que no le permiti saltar

durante algunos meses.

Pero con todo esto, el sigue siendo...

- You didn't say there'd be such security.

- They moved the flight forward.

We'll have to go ahead

as planned anyway.

Toro? Sounds like a load of bull.


Please be careful.

Escuadrn, atencin, al trote!

- Un, dos, un, dos...

- Apunten al objetivo.

Uno, dos. Vamos, vamos.

Muvanse, muvanse, deprisa.

- Coronel.

- Contina!



Well, it's a small world! You're a Toro, too!

- lnterrogacin!

- S, coronel. Mtalo al camin.

(woman over tannoy) Y ahora,

el capitn Alvarado va a saludar.



Gracias, querida.

I'll see you in Miami.

(car horn)


El ingls escap!

- Alerta, preparen el fuego.

- Apunten, fuego!

Cierren la puerta!


Fill her up, please.

(All Time High playing)

All I wanted was a sweet distraction

For an hour or two

Had no intention to do

The things we've done

Funny how it always goes with love

When you don't look, you find

But then we're two of a kind

We move as one

We're an all time high

We'll change all that's gone before

Doing so much more

Than falling in love

On an all time high

We'll take on the world and win

So hold on tight

Let the flight


I don't want to waste a waking moment

I don't want to sleep

I'm in so strong and so deep

And so are you

In my time I've said these words before

But now I realise

My heart was telling me lies

For you they're true

We're an all time high

We'll change all that's gone before

Doing so much more

Than falling in love

On an all time high

We'll take on the world and win

So hold on tight

Let the flight


So hold on tight

Let the flight


We're an all time high

(band playing marching tune)

(leaves rustling)

(balloon bursts)


Your guests have arrived, Ambassador.

We should go, my dear.


I must say,

you become more beautiful every day.

- I'm over here!

- Of course you are!

This is Miss Penelope Smallbone,

my new assistant.

Miss Smallbone.

What can I say, Moneypenny? Except that

she is as attractive and as charming...

- As I used to be?

- I didn't say that.

You're such a flatterer, James.

Moneypenny, you know there never has

been and never will be anybody but you.

So you've told me.

- Welcome to Universal Exports.

- Take it, dear.

- That's all you'll ever get from him.

- Thank you, Commander Bond.

- Do you know me?

- Miss Moneypenny described you.

In nauseating detail.


I can see you're going

to fit in here very nicely.

- Ah, good morning, 007.

- Morning, sir.

- Minister.

- Commander.

I think you know Jim Fanning,

our art expert.

- Yes. Hello, Jim.

- James.

- Do you know what this is?

- It looks like a Faberg egg, sir.

One of the jewelled eggs by Carl Faberg

as a gift for the Russian royal family.

They're priceless and, uh... And very rare.

This one contains a model

of the imperial state coach.

- Top marks, 007.

- Thank you, sir.

Except it's a fake.

There's the real thing. It's being

auctioned at Sotheby's this afternoon.

This is the fourth egg

to turn up at auction this year.

It's from none of the usual sources.

Anonymous seller,

numbered Swiss bank account.

I'd say that the vendor was a Russian.

And now this turns up.

A near-perfect forgery.
