(DOOR OPENING)

Ronson's down.

He needs medical evac.

M (OVER EARPIECE): Where is it?

Is it there?

Hard drive's gone.

M:
Are you sure?

It's gone. Give me a minute.

They must have it.

Get after them.

I'm stabilizing Ronson.

We don't have the time.

I have to stop the bleeding!

Leave him!

? BOND:
Have you got him.

He's in the black Audi.

What about Ronson?

He's been hit.

We're sending an emergency

evacuation squad.

They'll be too bloody late!

(TIRES SCREECHING)

He's seen us.

Medical evac for Ronson

five minutes away.

(TIRES SCREECHING)

That's all right. You

weren't using it.

I wasn't using

that one, either.

Just get clear!

Tanner, which way?

Keep going. I can

direct you from here.

You both know what's

at stake here.

We can't afford to

lose that list.

Yes, ma'am.

EVE:
Where are they now?

They appear to be on the

rooftops of the Grand Bazaar.

What do you mean on the train?

I mean, they're on

top of a train.

Well, get after them,

for God's sake!

She's going out of range.

We've lost tracking.

We're blind here.

What's going on? I'm

007, are you all right?

Just changing carriages.

Looks like there isn't

much more road.

I don't think I can

I may have a shot.

It's not clean.

Repeat, I do not

have a clean shot.

(TRAIN HORN BLARING)

There's a tunnel ahead.

I'm gonna lose them.

Can you get into a

better position?

Negative. There's no time.

Take the shot.

I can't! I may hit Bond.

Take the bloody shot!

This is the end

Hold your breath

and count to ten

Feel the earth move and then

in Hear my heart burst aga

For this is the end

I've drowned and

dreamt this moment

So overdue, I owe them

Swept away, I'm stolen

Let the sky fall

When it crumbles

We will stand tall

And face it all together

At Skyfall

Skyfall is where we sta rt

A thousand miles

and poles apart

Where worlds collide

and days are dark

You may have my number

You can take my name

But you'll never

have my heart

Let the sky fall

When it crumbles

We will stand tall

And face it all together

Let the sky fall

When it crumbles

We will stand tall

And face it all

together At Skyfall

Where you go I go

What you see I see

I know I'd never be

me without the security

Of your loving arms

keeping me from harm

Put your hand in my

hand and we'll stand

Let the sky fall

When it crumbles

We will stand tall

And face it all together

Let the sky fall

When it crumbles

We will stand tall

And face it all together

At Skyfall

Let the sky fall

We will stand tall

(BELL CONTINUES TOLLING)

It's like being summoned

to the headmaster's study.

It's a new Chairman.

Just standard procedure.

Bloody waste of my time

is what I call it.

I'm sorry to have

to deal with such

a delicate subject at

our first encounter.

But, um...

I have to be frank with you.

I think that would

be a good idea.

The Prime Minister's

concerned.

Well, you can tell him my operatives

are pursuing every avenue.

? Have you considered

pulling out the agents

I've considered every option.

Forgive me, that sounds

like an evasion.

Forgive me, but why am I here?

Three months ago, you lost the

computer drive containing the identity

of almost every NATO

agent embedded in

terrorist organization

s across the globe.

A list which, in the eyes of

our allies, never existed.

So if you'll forgive me, I think

you know why you're here.

Are we to call this

"civilian oversight"?

" No, we're to call this

"retirement planning.

Your country has only the

highest respect for you

and your many

years of service.

When your current

posting is completed,

you'll be awarded GCMG

with full honors.

Congratulations.

You're firing me.

No, ma'am, I'm here to oversee

the transition period

leading to your voluntary

retirement in two months' time.

Your successor has yet to be

appointed, so we'll be asking you...

I'm not an idiot, Mallory.

I know I can't do

this job forever

but I'll be damned if I'm

going to leave the department

in worse shape

than I found it.

M, you've had a great run.

You should leave with dignity.

Oh, to hell with dignity. I'll

leave when the job's done.

Yes?

Now?

Ma'am, alert from Q-Branch. Someone's

trying to decrypt the stolen hard drive.
