  • Octopussy: [Bond sneaks on to the island and makes his way into Octopussy's room] I wondered when you might arrive.

    James Bond: So you are the mysterious Octopussy.

    Octopussy: And you are James Bond. Licensed to kill. Am l to be your target for tonight?

    James Bond: Not necessarily. Depends how much you tell me about jewelry smuggling. And why one of our agents was killed in East Berlin.

    Octopussy: I know nothing about that. You remember Major Dexter Smythe? You were sent out to arrest him, weren't you?

    James Bond: You seem to have done your homework.

    Octopussy: Thank you.

    James Bond: Yes. Smythe, after a brilliant military career, joined our secret service. His mission was to recover a cache of Chinese gold, seized in North Korea. Both he and his native guide disappeared. The gold was never found.

    Octopussy: And 15 years later you were sent after him.

    James Bond: The guide's body turned up with a bullet still in his skull from Smythe's revolver. I traced Smythe to Sri Lanka, and gave him 24 hours to clear up his affairs before I took him back. He committed suicide rather than face the disgrace of a court martial. What's the connection?

    Octopussy: He was my father. I'd hoped fate would bring us together one day.

    James Bond: To avenge him?

    Octopussy: To thank you for giving him an honorable alternative.

  • Octopussy: When Father's gold ran out, the people in Hong Kong who'd disposed of it for him offered me a commission to smuggle some diamonds. I discovered I had a talent for it.

    James Bond: You went into business for yourself?

    Octopussy: Yes, but l needed an organization, so l revived the old Octopus cult.

    James Bond: Well, then. Where did you recruit all these lovelies?

    Octopussy: There are many of them all over Southeast Asia, looking for a guru, spiritual discipline, who knows what. l train them. Give them a purpose, a sisterhood and a way of life.

    James Bond: In crime?

    Octopussy: In business. I have diversified into shipping, hotels, carnivals and circuses.
