"Maybe no one will notice..."


#102

Maybe no one will notice that Oddjob is such a fastidious painter that there’s not a fleck of gold paint on the sheets.


#103

Or that Jill Masterson is not naked…


#104

Neither is Honey coming out of the decontamination procedure in Dr. No.


#105

Maybe no one will notice that the location of the Fillet of Soul in New Orleans is said, by Felix, to be located on Docker St, but that Docker St doesn’t exist. The street corner that Hamilton was standing in, and later on Strutter, is in fact Dumaine and Chartres (proven by the street signs in the background). The actual location of the Fillet of Soul is on Chartres St, half a block between Dumaine and Madison.


#106

“Docka” Street.


#107

Either way, it still doesn’t exist.


#108

He’s right, Felix says Docker Street…


#109

Maybe no one will notice that the “mannequin” of Al Capone in Scaramanga’s fun house blinks twice – once when he fires his Tommy gun and again when his arms are shot off. Maybe that’s why Rodney talks to him as if he’s still alive.


#110

Maybe no one will notice that Daniel Craig uses incorrect grammar when speaking in Spanish in QoS. He says “Somos maestros en un sabbatico, y nos ganamos la loteria.” He should have said that sentence without the ‘nos.’


#111

Is that really a gaffe? As a Brit, it was a miracle he wasn’t just shouting English at them.


#112

Just a little side note: the majority of these observations really did escape me; this is smashing good fun.

Kudos to @AMC_Hornet for starting this thread.


#113

For Americans, we’d say its a miralce he wasn’t shouting American at them.


#114

Can you ask Mom to put food coloring on the herbs I’ve spread on the aluminium foil?

“You’re in America, speak English!”

Jokes aside, as long as the concierge understood Bond’s meaning, he was technically right as it fulfilled the purpose of the sentence (according to a trivia note my MsC lecturer once shared with me) But obviously this doesn’t account to Bond actually just yelling loudly at a Chinese family in TMWTGG despite claiming in YOLT he has a first in oriental languages.


#115

Personally, it’s just something that has always annoyed me and a more competant director than Marc Forster would have caught it. Moving on…

Maybe no one will notice that Bond’s gun keeps changing in every shot while he is shooting at the “dragon”.


#116

Wait, now you have me questioning my Spanish…

Wouldn’t “y nos ganamos la loteria” be correct? He is saying “we” won the lottery, and isn’t the “nos” what puts the “we” into the sentence?


#117

No, ‘we’ is nosotros. ‘Nos’ is an indirect pronoun like ‘us’. Craig basically said: We won ourselves the lottery, which is redundant.


#118

Well, I did have to take Spanish twice :wink:


#119

It took me 2 years of living in Spain to learn that. :wink:


#120

So would Bond get that right after being in Mexico for the length of a taxi ride?


#121

How do they get ashore then?
