Surface. Blow forward, blow aft. Rise on

both planes. Raise the search periscope.

Oh, my God!

Put him through.

Good morning, sir.

No, First Sea Lord. No, there's been

no contact with Ranger yet, sir.

No. No sightings, no distress signals, sir.

It looks very much like it.

Yes. Yes, of course I will, sir.

We've lost one of our nuclear submarines.


The submarine Potemkin

disappeared without trace?

But what a catastrophe,

Comrade Chairman.

Yes, of course.

I will assign our best agent immediately.

Rube/vitch, where is Agent Triple X?

On leave, General. At the People's

Rest and Recuperation Centre.

It's been a wonderful weekend.

- Nor will I.

When can we meet again?

As soon as my mission is accomplished.

I must go. I have to be in Austria tonight.

Five more minutes.

Moneypenny, where's 007?

He's on a mission, sir. In Austria.

Tell him to pull out. Immediately.

Oh, James.

I cannot find the words.

Let me try and enlarge your vocabulary.

- What happened? Where are you going?

- Sorry. Something came up.

But, James, I need you.

So does England.

He has just left.

He has just left- Over and out.

Message received.

We are waiting. Over and out.


Nobody does it better

Makes me feel sad for the rest

Nobody does it

Half as good as you

Baby, you're the best

I wasn't Iookin'

But somehow you found me

I tried to hide from your love light

But like heaven above me

The spy who loved me

ls keepin' all my secrets safe tonight

And nobody does it better

Though sometimes

I wish someone could

Nobody does it

Quite the way you do

Why'd you have to be so good?

The way that you hold me

Whenever you hold me

There's some kind of magic inside you

That keeps me from runnin'

But just keep it comin'

How'd you learn

to do the things you do?

And nobody does it better

Makes me feel sad for the rest

Nobody does it

Half as good as you

Baby, baby

Baby, you're the best

Send in Agent Triple X.

You sent for me, Comrade General.

Good morning. Major Amasova,

we are facing a most delicate situation.

Our nuclear submarine

Potemkin has disappeared.

- Sabotage?

- That is for you to find out.

We have one lead. A connection in Cairo.

You leave tonight.

Will that be all, Comrade General?

There is one more thing.

I regret to inform you, Major,

that Agent Sergei Barsov has been killed.

On a mission,

at Berngarten in the Austrian Alps.

- A tragic occurrence, Comrade General.

- It had not escaped our notice

that you had been more than friends

for some time. I'm very sorry.

- How did he die?

- We haven't all the details yet,

but it appears he'd become involved

in a British Secret Service operation.

Please keep me informed,

Comrade General.

I should very much like to meet

whoever was responsible for his death.

Sea King 05, finals to land. Over.
