“SPECTRE”

The familiar gun barrel opens to:

EXT. BUILDING - SAN FRANCISCO - DAY

The sunlight bathes the streets of San Francisco.
A bald man wearing a grey nehru suit walks out the
front door. This is Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Blofeld stops at the edge of the pavement. He
searches the street, but doesn’t see his car.

EXT. CAR - ALLEY - SIMULTANEOUS

A dark blue Rolls Royce sits in shadow. The driver
is wearing a black suit, a black hat, and black
gloves. He starts the car.

A shadowy figure from the back seat garrotes him.
The driver struggles and dies. The shadowy figure
pulls the body to the backseat.

He takes the driver’s hat and gloves and puts them
on. The shadowy figure, also wearing a black suit,
exits the car and and throws the body into an open
dumpster.

He re-enters the car and drives out of the alley.

EXT. BUILDING - MOMENTS LATER

The car pulls up to Blofeld. He enters the backseat.

                  BLOFELD
        You're late, (beat) drive.

The car drives off.

INT. CAR - CONTINUOUS

Blofeld watches as San Francisco whizzes by. He sees
a sign for the Golden Gate Bridge.

                  BLOFELD
        You're going the wrong way.

Suddenly, the shadowy figure speeds up as a glass
partition rises between the front and back seats.

                  BLOFELD
        What the devil are you doing?! 
        Slow down!

EXT. CAR - SAN FRANCISCO - CONTINUOUS

The car begins weaving around the road. The shadowy
figure goes faster and the car goes airborne over a
steep hill and lands hard on the road.

INT. CAR - CONTINUOUS

Blofeld rolls around the backseat.

                  BLOFELD
        Stop, damn you!

He tries to open the door, but it won’t budge. Blofeld
bangs on the window.

                  BLOFELD
        Stop! Let me out!

EXT. CAR - GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE - CONTINUOUS

The car speeds onto the Golden Gate Bridge. The
shadowy figure continues weaving between cars. He
reaches the middle of the bridge’s span and screeches
to a halt.

INT. CAR - CONTINUOUS

Blofeld is flung forward and smacks his head on the
partition. He is bleeding from his forehead. The shadowy
figure exits the car and opens the door to the backseat.
Blofeld is forcefully pulled out of the car.

EXT. GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE - CONTINUOUS

The shadowy figure leads Blofeld to the edge of the
bridge. They stop and the shadowy figure spins Blofeld
around to look at him.

The shadowy figure removes his hat and Blofeld stares
horrified at his kidnapper’s face. He recognizes the jet
black hair, the blue eyes, and the late 30s face. This is
Bond.

                  BLOFELD
        Mr. Bond!

                  BOND
        This is for Tracy.

Bond shoots Blofeld in the knee. Blofeld screams and
crumples to the ground in agony.

                  BLOFELD
        I'll kill you, Mr. Bond.

Bond grabs Blofeld by his lapel and punches him across
the face. Bond throws him over the edge of the bridge.
Blofeld screams.

                  BOND
        Welcome to hell, Blofeld.

EXT. SAN FRANCISCO BAY - CONTINUOUS

Bond watches Blofeld fall. He crashes hard into the
water. The resulting splash leads into:

MAIN TITLE SEQUENCE featuring “No Good About
Goodbye” sung by Shirley Bassey.

Main title sequence fades to a black screen. Superimposed:
THE DEAD ARE ALIVE. TWO YEARS LATER.

EXT. STREET - MEXICO CITY - LATE AFTERNOON

Camera pans over a parade, complete with giant stylized
skeleton floats. Revelers dance and walk down the street in
all manner of Day of the Dead costumes.

Camera tracks a man, 30s, wearing a skeleton mask and
costume over a dark blue suit. This is Bond.

Bond looks around and continues walking down the street.
He meets a woman wearing a red dress, with Day of the
Dead make up on her face. This is Maria.

Bond stares at her longingly and she leads him through the
parade to the other side of the street.

The pair arrive in front of a hotel and enter.

INT. HOTEL - MEXICO CITY - CONTINUOUS

Continuous tracking shot as Bond and Maria pass through
more revelers and come upon an elevator.

INT. ELEVATOR - CONTINUOUS

Bond and Maria press together and share a kiss as the
elevator ascends. The elevator comes to a stop and Bond
and Maria release each other. Maria pulls Bond through the
door.

INT. HOTEL HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS

Maria stops in front of a room. She turns to face Bond and
stands against the door. She wraps her arms around Bond
who reaches for the doorknob and pushes the door open.

INT. HOTEL ROOM - CONTINUOUS

Maria follows Bond into the room and climbs seductively
onto the bed. She looks towards Bond, but gives off a
puzzled look. Bond has removed the skeleton attire and
mask. He is now simply wearing a dark blue suit and is
carrying a sniper rifle.

                  MARIA
        What are you doing?

                  BOND
        I'll be back soon.

Bond exits through the window and onto a small ledge.

EXT. HOTEL LEDGE - CONTINUOUS

Continuous tracking shot follows Bond as he shimmies
along the ledge on the exterior of the Hotel.

Bond comes to a small gap and jumps across to a full,
open rooftop.

EXT. HOTEL ROOFTOP - CONTINUOUS

Bond hurries toward the edge and kneels down. Bond
raises the sniper rifle and aims it a window on the building
directly in front of him.

There are 2 men sitting in the room. Marco Schiarra in a
white suit and an unknown second man in a dark suit.

Bond removes a radio from his pocket and listens.

                  SCHIARRA
              (in italian)
        Did you bring it?

The second man produces a small velvet satchel.

                  UNKNOWN MAN
              (in italian)
        The money.

Schiarra places over an attache case on the table. The
unknown man opens the case and examines it.

                  SCHIARRA
              (in italian)
        $1 million. It's all there.

                  UNKNOWN MAN
              (in italian)
        Good.

                  SCHIARRA
            (in italian)
        Hand it over.

The Unknown man hands over the satchel. Schiarra opens
it and looks inside. He closes the satchel and places it
inside his pocket.

Bond readies his weapon to fire. However, a glare from his
scope causes the unknown man to duck.

Bond fires. PFFT! The unknown man is hit in the head and
falls backward, dead. Schiarra ducks and pulls the pin on a
grenade.

BOOM! The grenade explodes, blowing part of the room
outwards towards Bond. He is showered by falling rubble.

Smoke clears and Bond looks around for any sign of
Schiarra. He spots Schiarra, bloodied, running out of the
front of his building.

Bond jumps up and runs over to a ladder, sliding down it.

EXT. ALLEY - CONTINUOUS

Bond reaches the ground and spins around. He searches
for Schiarra and finds him pushing his way through the
crowd of party-goers.

Bond moves to street and pushes his way through,
following Schiarra.

EXT. MEXICO CITY STREETS - CONTINUOUS

Bond pursues Schiarra through the throng of costumed
people. Schiarra glances over his shoulder to search for
Bond.

Bond sees Schiarra looking at him. Both men stop for a
brief moment. Schiarra runs towards Cortez’s garden at
the end of the street.

Bond takes off after him, continuing to push through
people.

EXT. CORTEZ’S GARDEN - CONTINUOUS

Schiarra ducks behind a hedge. Bond loses sight of him.
Bond unholsters his PPK and searches for Schiarra in
the garden.

Bond moves slowly through the garden searching every
corner.

Schiarra raises his gun and watches through the bushes.
He can’t see Bond anywhere. A gun presses into the
back of his head.

                  BOND
        Don't move.

Schiarra raises his hands. Bond takes his gun and holsters
his own PPK. He continues aiming with Schiarra’s luger.
He reaches into Schiarra’s inside pocket and removes the
pouch. He pockets them in his own.

BOOM! CRACK!

The darkened sky illuminates with colors as fireworks
explode overhead. Schiarra uses the distraction and
elbows Bond causing him to drop the gun.

Bond punches back. The two begin fighting hand to hand.
Schiarra reaches for the luger, but it is kicked away by
Bond. Schiarra lunges for Bond and rams him into the
hedges. Bond lets out a groan.

Bond hits Schiarra in the back twice. Schiarra squeezes
Bond harder. Bond swings the two of the them around.
Schiarra’s body collides with a statue causing him to
release his grip. Schiarra winces in pain.

Bond knees him in the groin and punches him. Schiarra
stumbles back. BOOM! CRACK! More fireworks.

Schiarra regains his composure and moves towards Bond.
However, Bond has unholstered his PPK. BOOM! CRACK!
The fireworks cover up the gunshot. Schiarra falls down
dead. Bond checks his pulse. Schiarra is dead. Bond
re-holsters his gun and takes off.

EXT. ALLEY - MOMENTS LATER

Bond slips into an alley illuminated by a streetlight. He
removes the pouch from his pocket and dumps its contents
into his hand: diamonds.

Bond moves them around examining them. They glisten in
the streetlight. He replaces them in their pouch and he leaves
the scene.

EXT. DESERT - SOUTH AFRICA - DUST

Twilight blankets the sprawling desert. A scorpion approaches
a lizard and stings it. The lizard writhes and dies.

Two men, 40s, one lanky and one burly, watch intently. These
are Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd, respectively.

                    KIDD
        One of nature's finest killers, 
        Mr. Wint.

                    WINT
        One is never too old to learn 
        from a master, Mr. Kidd.

Kidd picks up the scorpion and places it in a small, plastic tank.

INT. DENTIST’S OFFICE - JOHANNESBURG - NIGHT

A black man sits in a dentist’s chair. A white man, 50s, balding,
looks into his mouth. This is Dr. Tynan. He extracts a rough
diamond.

He places the diamond into a pouch. He opens a drawer
and removes a British 100 pound note. He wraps it in paper
and hands it to the man, who gets up and leaves.

EXT. DESERT - SOUTH AFRICA - LATER

Wint and Kidd watch as a headlight get closer and closer,
illuminating the darkened desert. The motorcycle comes to
a stop in front of them.

Dr. Tynan dismounts the motorcycle and looks at Wint and
Kidd.

                    TYNAN
        Where's Joe?

                    WINT
        Joe couldn't make it tonight. 
        I'm Mr. Wint, this is Mr. Kidd.

Dr. Tynan reaches into his shirt for his gun, but relents
when he sees Mr. Kidd holding a box.

He bends down and opens his tail pipe, revealing a pouch.
He presents the pouch to Wint and Kidd.

                    TYNAN
        The diamonds.

Wint takes the pouch. He opens it to see the freshly cut
diamonds gleaming inside. Wint places the pouch into a
box, held by Kidd.

                    TYNAN
        My money?

Wint nods to Kidd who hands him a briefcase.

                  WINT
        It's all there. 50,000 pounds. 
        Open it and check.

Dr. Tynan acquiesces and opens the case. He doesn’t
notice Kidd circling behind him. Kidd carefully pulls back
Tynan’s collar and drops the scorpion down it.

                  TYNAN
        What are you doing?!

Tynan reaches back, but too late. He convulses and
collapses to the ground, dead.

Wint and Kidd, together, pick up the body and move it
behind a large rock.

Sand and dust kick up as a helicopter arrives. It
descends and lands several yards away.

The pilot exits the helicopter and walks towards Wint
and Kidd. This is Joe.

                  JOE
        Who are you?!

                  WINT
        Dr. Tynan sent us.

                  KIDD
        He was taken ill and couldn't 
        make it.

                  WINT
        Bitten by the bug. He left this 
        for you.

Wint presents the box to Joe, who nods and accepts it. He
reenters the helicopter and takes off. Wint and Kidd block
their faces from the sand. The helicopter flies away.

BOOM! The helicopter explodes. Kidd juggles the pouch of
diamonds in his hand.

                  KIDD
        If god had wanted man to fly, 
        Mr. Wint....

                  WINT
        He would have given him 
        wings, Mr. Kidd.

Wint and Kidd hold hands and walks away from the scene.

INT. CONVENT - CAPE TOWN - DAY

A nun sits at her desk. She is rifling through various papers.
KNOCK! KNOCK!

                  NUN
        Yes?

Another nun enters.

                  NUN #2
        Two men to see you.

                  NUN
        Send them in.

Nun #2 leaves and in walk Wint and Kidd.

                  NUN
        You're late. Do you have it?

Wint presents the pouch. The nun takes it and walks over
to her bookshelf. She removes a bible and opens it at the
bookmark. The inside has been hollowed out. The nun places
the pouch inside and closes the bible.

                  NUN
        You're dismissed and make sure 
        to repent on your way out.

                  WINT
        We will, sister. Thank you for your 
        kindness. We hope you have a safe 
        drive home.

Wint and Kidd turn and leave. The nun closes the door
behind them.

EXT. CONVENT - LATER

The nun walks to her car. She opens the door and gets
inside. She inserts the key to start the car.

BOOM! The car explodes.

                  WINT

It’s curious how everyone who comes into contact with
those diamonds seems to (beat) die.

Wint and Kidd look at each and smile. Wint starts their
own car and they drive away.

INT. M’S OFFICE - LONDON - DAY

A man, early 50s, graying hair, sits behind his desk. This
is M. Today’s paper is open in front of him. It reads: “Chaos
in Mexico City.” Bond sits across from him. M looks flustered.

                  M
        Start anywhere you like 007, but in 
        five minutes, the PM expects a 
        phone call and I must inform him why 
        one of our agents decided to trudge off 
        to Central America and destroy half a 
        city block.

                  BOND
        I don't know what you mean sir.

                  M
        Mexico City. What were you doing 
        there?

                  BOND
        It's just a coincidence. I was taking 
        some overdue holiday.

                  M
        No 007, no more games. Not this 
        time. The Mexican government is 
        screaming for reparations. You 
        undertook an unsanctioned mission.

Bond relents. He reaches into his pocket and removes a
cassette. He hands it to M.

                  BOND
        Play it.

M looks at the cassette and then back to Bond. He places
the cassette into the player on his desk and presses play.

The original M, Miles Massery, begins speaking from the
tape.

                  MASSERY
        007, if you are listening to this, it 
        means I'm dead and I have failed. 
        You need to finish what I started. 
        Trust no one. Find Marco Schiarra. 
        Find him and kill him. Follow the 
        diamonds. This is of the utmost 
        importance.

M presses stop.

                  M
        When did you receive this?

                  BOND
        A few weeks after he died. It 
        took me two years to find 
        Marco Schiarra.

                  M
        Why was he tracking him?

                  BOND
        He's a member of SPECTRE.

                  M
        SPECTRE? We haven't heard 
        anything of them since Blofeld's 
        death.

                  BOND
        He obviously had some sort of 
        contingency plan for the 
        organization's survival.

                  M
        And what did he mean "follow 
        the diamonds?"

Bond removes a pouch from his pocket. It is the same
pouch he recovered from Mexico City. He hands it to M.

                  BOND
        Schiarra paid $1 million for this. I 
        took it after I killed him.

M empties the diamonds onto his desk and examines
them.

                  M
        Where are these from?

                  BOND
        South Africa.

Bond lights a cigarette and explains.

                  BOND
        I researched the diamonds and 
        discovered they are identical to 
        ones that are bought and sold at 
        a  boutique in Paris.

Bond removes a photo from his packet and passes it to
M. The photo contains a picture of a man with a similar
physique to Bond.

                  BOND
        Once a month, this man, Peter 
        Franks enters and leaves like 
        clockwork.

                  M
        What are you suggesting, 007?

                  BOND
        He is due for a pickup tomorrow.

M puts down the photo and replaces the diamonds in
their pouch. He hands the diamonds to Bond.

                  M
        You're to go there. Intercept Franks 
        and assume his identity. Discover the 
        connection between these diamonds 
        and SPECTRE.

                  BOND
        Thank you, sir.

Bond crushes out his cigarette and stands up. He nods
and exits through the big red door.

INT. MONEYPENNY’S OFFICE - CONTINUOUS

CLICK! CLACK! Bond sees a woman, Moneypenny,
wearing a white dress, typing away at her desk. Bond
walks over to her and drops the pouch in front of her.

                  MONEYPENNY
        What's this, James?

                  BOND
        Something long overdue.

Moneypenny picks up the pouch and looks into it. She
dumps its contents into her hand.

                  MONEYPENNY
        James, are you asking what I 
        think you are?

                  BOND
        Nothing would make me jollier.

BEEP! Before Moneypenny can answer, the red light
blinks on her intercom. Moneypenny presses the button.
Bond sighs.

                  MONEYPENNY
        Yes?

                  M (O.S.)
        Please forgo the usual chatter, 007 
        must report to Q branch immediately.

Moneypenny smiles cheekily.

                  MONEYPENNY
        Of course, sir.

Moneypenny gathers the diamonds back in the pouch.

                  BOND
        We're just not destined for our 
        final forever.

                  MONEYPENNY
        Only diamonds are forever.

Bond grabs the pouch and walks towards the exit.

INT. Q’S LAB - MOMENTS LATER

Q’s lab bustles with various noises. Everywhere scientists
are working on different gadgets. A man, 50s, sits at a
particularly cluttered desk. This is Q.

Bond enters and walks toward Q’s desk.

                  BOND
        How can you see what you're doing 
        with all that mess?

                  Q
        The most successful people are 
        generally disorganized.

Q stands up.

                  Q
        Follow me, 007.

Bond follows Q to a room on the otherside of the lab.
They enter.

INT. Q’S MEDICAL ROOM - CONTINUOUS

The room contains a chair and table with a large
contraption on it opposite a screen.

                  BOND
        What's this Q?

                  Q
        Have a seat, please.

Bond acquiesces.

                  Q
        Open your mouth.

Q puts on rubber gloves. He picks up a tooth cap.

                  BOND
        M's orders?

                  Q
        Yes.

Q places the tooth cap on Bond’s molar and grabs a tool
that looks like a small hammer.

                  Q
        Now you might feel a slight--

Bond lets out a scream. Q smashes the toothcap down.

                  Q
        Pinch.

Q presses a button on the desk and a photo is taken. An
x-ray of Bond’s head appears on the screen in front of them.
A tiny device is visible on his back molar.

                  Q
        I call it the Q-tracker.

                  BOND
        Of course you do.

Bond stands up.

                  Q
        This way.

Bond follows Q back out to the lab.

INT. Q’S LAB - CONTINUOUS

Bond and Q arrive at Q’s desk. Q picks up a small inkpad.

                  Q
        Now pay attention, a simple inkpad--

Bond cuts him off.

                  BOND
        I'm familiar with that device.

                  Q
        Not one that makes an exact silicone
        copy of one's fingerprints. Simply 
        push down on the pad here, close, 
        and voila!

Q demonstrates with his own fingerprint. A small
silicone print slides out. He hands it to Bond.

                  Q
        Apply that to your finger and it will 
        fool, most tests.

                  BOND
        Most tests?.

                  Q
        All tests.

                  BOND
        I feel like we should talk about 
        the most.

                  Q
        Do you want it or not?

Q hands Bond the inkpad. He hits a button on his desk. A door starts to open on the otherside of Q’s lab. Bond turns around. A grey 1971 Aston Martin DBS Vantage is visible.

                  Q
        Your new car. Aston Martin DBS 
        Vantage. All the usual refinements, 
        bulletproof glass, run-flat tires, 
        ejector seat. Switches here.

Q reaches into the car and points to the center console.

                  Q
        Press this button and you will engage 
        the rear afterburners. Ensure there is 
        much space between you and 
        anything else as they run pretty hot. 
        Also, make sure you're wearing your 
        seat belt.

Q stands up.

                  BOND
        Anything else, Q?

                  Q
        You can have this.

Q hands Bond a watch.

                  BOND
        Another watch? What does it do?

                  Q
        It tells the time.

Bond rolls his eyes.

                  Q
        Be careful though, the alarm is 
        guaranteed never to wake up 
        anybody who uses it. If you 
        know what I mean.

                  BOND
        I think I do.

Bond winds the watch and puts it on.

                  Q
        Now 007, I would tell you to bring 
        everything back in pristine order. 
        But I know I would just be 
        disappointed.

                  BOND
        You know me so well.

Q shrugs and walks off.

END: ACT I


#2

EXT. APARTMENT BUILDING - PARIS - DAY

A wide shot of Paris pans to Bond sitting in his Aston Martin.
He is watching the building across the street. A car parks in
front and a man exits. The man has similar features to Bond.
This is Peter Franks.

Bond exits his own car and hurries over to the other side of the
road. Franks opens the door and enters. Bond slides in just
before the door closes.

INT. APARTMENT GROUND FLOOR - CONTINUOUS

Franks stands next to the lift. Bond walks up and stops next
to him.

DING! The lift doors open and Bond attempts to enter at the
same time as Franks. They both stop.

                    FRANKS
        Pardon me.

Bond allows him to pass and follows him in.

                    BOND
        You iz English? (beat) I speak ze 
        English. Who ist you floor?

Bond mimics a German accent.

                    FRANKS
        3.

Bond presses 3 and the doors close. The lift begins to move.

DING! The lift arrives at the third floor and the doors open.
Franks moves past Bond into the hall. Bond follows.

Franks walks to his apartment and opens the door. However,
he doesn’t fully close it.

Bond withdraws his PPK and pushes the door open.

INT. FRANKS’S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS

The room is fairly bland with a couch against the wall, a coffee
table, and a table against the wall with a phone and a tray with
cognac and a few glasses.

Bond enters and shuts the door behind him.

                    FRANKS
        Hands up.

Franks appears behind Bond holding a knife to Bond’s neck.
Bond complies and raises his hands.

Franks takes the PPK and tosses it on the couch.

                    FRANKS
        Now on your knees.

Bond does nothing.

                    FRANKS
        On your knees!

Bond spins around and punches Franks, before Franks can
react. Bond tries to grab the knife, but Franks resists.

They struggle. Franks kicks Bond who stumbles towards the
table with the phone. Franks taunts Bond with the knife.

Franks lunges at Bond who dodges the attack. Bond grabs
the phone and smashes Franks in the head. Franks stumbles
backwards, bloodied.

Bond wraps the phone cord around Franks’s neck and slams
him into the coffee table. SMASH!

The glass breaks and Franks lays on his side, unmoving.

                    BOND
        You shouldn't play with knives.

Bond kneels down next to Franks, pulling out the inkpad.
He grabs Franks’s right hand and presses the fingers into
the ink. He drops Franks’s hand and closes the inkpad. A
silicone fingerprint slides out the bottom.

Bond takes it and applies it to his thumb. He stands up and
walks to the door. However, he stops and turns around.

He walks to the table with the cognac. He removes the cork
and pours himself a dram.

He raises the glass to Franks.

                    BOND
        To good health.

Bond downs the drink and replaces the glass on the table,
before exiting the apartment.

EXT. BEAUFORT DIAMANTS - PARIS - DAY

Wide shot of Les Champs Elysees with L’Arc de Triomphe
in the background. Bond’s Aston Martin comes to a stop in
front of a shop with the sign reading: BEAUFORT DIAMANTS.

Bond exits the car. He buttons his jacket and enters the shop.

INT. BEAUFORT DIAMANTS - CONTINUOUS

Bond enters the shop. Glass cases line the wall. A floating
island sits in the middle with more glass cases. A young,
attractive, brown haired woman stands behind the counter. This
is Tiffany Case.

                    TIFFANY
        Can I help you?

Tiffany has an American accent. Bond walks over to her.

                    BOND
        I'm certain you can, miss?

                    TIFFANY
        Case, Tiffany Case.

                    BOND
        Tiffany.

                    TIFFANY
        That's Miss Case to you.

                    BOND
        Named for Tiffany and Co.?

Tiffany has a look of scorn on her face.

                    TIFFANY
        My mother went into labor while 
        my parents were searching for 
        engagement rings. What do you 
        need?

                    BOND
        My name is Franks, Peter Franks. 
        I am looking for something for my 
        companion.

                    TIFFANY
        Your wife?

Bond tenses up.

                    BOND
        Mistress.

                    TIFFANY
        Typical man. And what does your 
        mistress like?

                    BOND
        A ring.

                    TIFFANY
        Of course, sir.

Tiffany reaches under the case and pulls out a small metal box.
She places it on the counter.

Bond opens the box touching it with his fake fingerprints. The
diamond ring inside glistens in the light. He shuts the box.

                    BOND
        It's nice, but do you have 
        anything more (beat) rough?

Tiffany stares at him with utter contempt.

                    TIFFANY
        I'll check the back.

Tiffany grabs the box and walks towards the door in the back
corner of the shop. She passes through the door, slamming it
behind her.

Bond scopes out the rest of the room.

INT. BACKROOM - CONTINUOUS

Tiffany enters a cluttered backroom. She places the box on a
table and opens a nearby toolbox. She takes out a spray and
sprays the box. She follows by peppering it with some talcum
powder.

Next, she takes a brush and removes the excess powder
leaving a clearly defined thumb print. She places the box on the
table next to a shutter.

She presses a button on the shutter and a photo is taken. The
photo prints out from the camera.

Tiffany takes the photo and inserts it into a projector next to the
toolbox. She turns off the light switch. Illuminated in front of her
are two large thumb prints, one of Peter Franks and one of Bond.
They are identical.

Tiffany grabs a pistol from the toolbox. She turns and walks out of
the room.

INT. BEAUFORT DIAMANTS - CONTINUOUS

Tiffany walks back into main room and to the counter. She raises
the gun to Bond.

                    TIFFANY
        Where are the diamonds?

                    BOND
        Only interested in the climax. My 
        kind of lady.

Tiffany pulls back the hammer.

                    BOND
        Easy, Miss Case.

Bond reaches into his jacket pocket and removes the diamond
pouch.

                    TIFFANY
        Bring it here.

Bond begins walking over, but feigns dropping the pouch. He
bends down to pick it up.

BANG! CRUNCH! Tiffany fires at Bond, but misses shattering
a glass case behind him. Bond pops up and fires back. BANG!
BANG! He deliberately misses her, instead hitting the case
around her.

Tiffany ducks down behind the counter. She hears footsteps
moving. She pops up and scans the room, but doesn’t see
Bond.

Bond grabs her from behind and bends her over pressing her
face into the intact glass counter. Tiffany screams.

                    BOND
        That wasn't very nice.

                    TIFFANY
        Go to hell, you misogynistic pig.

She tries to lift her hand with the gun. Bond grabs her arm.
BANG! BANG! She fires two shots that fly in random
directions. Bond slams her wrist against the counter causing
her to drop the gun.

                    BOND
        Where are the diamonds going?

Bond twists her arm and Tiffany winces in pain.

                    TIFFANY
        You already know that, Franks.

                    BOND
        Humor me.

Bond twists her arm further and she starts to cry. She relents.

                    tiffany
        Marco Schiarra.

                    BOND
        Schiarra is dead.

                    TIFFANY
        They are choosing his successor 
        tonight.

                    BOND
        Where?

Tears roll down Tiffany’s face.

                    TIFFANY
        Le Palais Garnier, at midnight.

Bond releases his grip on Tiffany and helps her stand up.

Bond paces and thinks. Tiffany rubs her arm, where Bond
twisted it.

                    BOND
        Where do you deliver the 
        diamonds to Schiarra?

                    TIFFANY
        Las Vegas, the Shady Tree.

        Bond holsters his PPK and 
        re-buttons his jacket. He turns 
        to leave.

                    BOND
        Thank you, Miss Case.

Bond walks through the damaged shop and out the front door.

Tiffany collapses to the floor and cries.

EXT. LE PALAIS GARNIER - PARIS - NIGHT

Aerial shot of Le Palais Garnier illuminated against the
darkened Parisian skyline. Bond’s Aston Martin arrives onto
the crowded street. He parks the car in an empty space and
shuts it off.

INT. BOND’S CAR - CONTINUOUS

Bond opens the glove box. He pulls out a silencer and
unholsters his PPK. He attaches the silencer and reloads the
gun with a new clip. He places the old clip in the glove box
and re-holsters his weapon.

He pulls a cord on the passenger seat, lifting it up. Bond takes
a grappling hook from the opening and replaces the seat. He
exits the car.

EXT. LE PALAIS GARNIER - CONTINUOUS

Bond ducks down to between the Aston and another vehicle
surveying the scene. Several guards are posted at the entrance.
Bond slowly moves to his right toward the side of the building.

Bond stops in front of a solid wall. Guards stand beside the
columns on the building’s front. Bond readies the grappling hook.

POP! The hook launches and catches the side of the railing
above Bond. Bond hides in the shadows.

A guard notices and scans the area, but sees nothing and turns
back to what he was doing.

Bond emerges from the shadows and takes a firm grip on the
rope. He climbs up the side of the building.

EXT. PALAIS GARNIER SECOND FLOOR - CONTINUOUS

Bond reaches the top of the ledge and hoists himself through
the opening.

INT. PALAIS GARNIER SECOND FLOOR - CONTINUOUS

The passageway is darkly lit. There is a crowd of people in
front of Bond. He slowly pushes his way through the crowd.

Bond reaches the front of the crowd and is able to see into the
brightly lit room below.

INT. PALAIS GARNIER FIRST FLOOR - CONTINUOUS

There is a long conference table with many people seated
around it. The head seat of the table is empty. The table has a
giant octopus logo on it.

The entire congregation is silent. Two men stand near a large
door at the end of the room with the empty seat.

Bond sees a woman, late 40s, enter. He recognizes her
immediately and tenses up. This is Irma Bunt.

                    BUNT
        All present rise before our great 
        leader, Dr. Shatterhand.

Everyone in the room stands. They look towards the door
where a silhouetted figure enters.

A man in a wheelchair rolls into the room. A guard removes the
empty chair and the man rolls into it. The man is bald and his
face is obscured in shadow. This is Dr. Shatterhand.

Shatterhand comes to a stop at the table.

                    BUNT
        Be seated.

The congregation sits. Bond stares at Shatterhand.

Bunt bends over. Shatterhand says something to her that is too
low for anyone to hear. He finishes and Bunt stands up to
address the meeting.

                    BUNT
        The meeting is commenced. First 
        order of business, replacing 
        SPECTRE number 3, Marco 
        Schiarra. (beat) Senor Guerra?

A man, blond, 30s, stands up at the end of the table directly
opposite Shatterhand. This is Guerra.

                    GUERRA
        As SPECTRE number 4, I submit 
        my candidacy to replace the late 
        Senor Schiarra.

                    BUNT
        You must complete his assignment 
        and dispose of his killer, MI6 agent, 
        James Bond.

                    GUERRA
        I've led regime overthrows in South 
        America and conducted SPECTRE 
        operations in Africa and Asia. My 
        loyalty to this organization is 
        unmatched. I will find Mr. Bond and 
        I will kill him.

Guerra finishes and waits.

                    BUNT
        Does anyone challenge Senor 
        Guerra for the position of SPECTRE 
        number 3?

Two American men, tall and thin, 40s, enter from a door behind
Guerra. They are each wearing a black pin striped suit with a
black fedora, the classic gangster look. These are Jack and
Serrafimo Spang.

The Spang brothers stop next to Guerra. Serrafimo Spang
punches Guerra in the stomach. Guerra winces in pain. Jack
Spang wraps a garrote around Guerra’s neck and pulls it tight.

Guerra tries to fight back, but to no avail. He dies and Jack
lets his grip go. He replaces the garrote in his pocket.

The Spang brothers turn to face Shatterhand and Bunt.

                    SERRAFIMO
        We are Serrafimo and Jack Spang. 
        We are here to take the positions of 
        SPECTRE numbers 3 and 4.

There is a short pause.

                    BUNT
        Are there any objections?

The room is silent.

                    BUNT
        Done.

Shatterhand motions for Bunt. She leans over and says
something to him.

                    BUNT
        Dr. Shatterhand says you are to go 
        to Las Vegas and take over 
        Schiarra's operation. However, your 
        first assignment is tonight. It appears 
        that we have an uninvited guest in 
        our amidst.

Bond’s eyes get wide.

                    BUNT
        Mr. Schiarra's killer.

Bunt turns to face exactly where Bond is standing on the
second floor. Bond’s eyes lock with hers.

                    BUNT
        Good evening, Mr. Bond. Tell me, 
        how would you like to die? A little 
        like your wife perhaps?

Bond immediately turns around to escape, but is stopped by a
burly guard. Bond kicks him in the groin and throws the reeling
man over the railing. THUD! He lands on the table. Bond takes
off running for the window he entered through.

The Spang brothers coolly make their way towards the exit.

EXT. PALAIS GARNIER - CONTINUOUS

Bond arrives outside the window and runs to where he left the
rope. Nothing.

KNOCK! Bond spins around to see two guards push open a
door. He turns and climbs over the railing. He jumps over the
side. THUD! He lands on top of a van parked underneath the
window.

Bond rolls off the van and lands on the ground. He pulls
himself up and unholsters his PPK.

BANG! BANG! He fires two shots and takes off running
in the direction of his Aston Martin.

Bond arrives and quickly enters his car. The car starts
and Bond tears off down the road.

Jack Spang arrives outside the palace and hurries over
to his car, a 1971 Ferrari Daytona. It starts and Jack
speeds after Bond.

EXT. PARIS STREETS - CONTINUOUS

Bond speeds down L’Avenue de Opera. He checks his
rearview mirror to see an orange Ferrari in pursuit.

Bond rips passed parked cars and darkened buildings.
Jack increases his speed in pursuit.

The cars speed down the wide road. Bond glances into
his rearview mirror. He opens the center console
revealing several switches.

He presses the first one labeled “Obscure.” Black smoke
shoots out of the rear of the car, blinding Jack.

Jack weaves back and forth trying to bypass the smoke.
He scrapes cars parked along the road and tears the
mirrors off his car.

The smokescreen runs out as Bond slides around a corner.

The smoke dissipates and Jack sees Bond turn. He follows
down the road.

Bond can’t shake his pursuer. The cars race down the road,
the lights of Paris twinkling behind them.

Jack picks up a lever action shotgun from his seat. He
reaches out the window and fires a shot at Bond.

CRACK! The back windscreen of the Aston Martin cracks.
Jack spins the shotgun to cock it. He fires again, shattering
a brake light.

Bond weaves back and forth on the road trying to avoid the
gunfire. He presses a button raising the rear bullet shield.

Bond looks down and sees a switch labeled afterburner.

                    BOND
        Alright Q, let's see what this one 
        does.

Before Bond can flip the switch, Jack fires again hitting the
back left tire. Bond slides along the road, fighting for
control. The left rear tire has broken off. Sparks trail behind
Bond.

The Aston bounces off two cars. Bond wrestles with the
traction and recovers a modicum of control. Jack fires
another round, but misses.

Bond flips a switch labeled “Slick.” Oil shoots out from the
back and coats the windscreen of Jack’s car. He engages
the wipers to no avail.

Bond looks to his left to see the river Seine. He thinks to
himself. He turns down a side street and checks him mirror,
no sign of Jack.

Bond whips the car around a corner which slides violently.
He pulls into a dark alley, kills the headlights, and watches
the road.

Jack comes to a stop at an intersection. He’s lost Bond! He
searches around, but sees no trace of Bond.

Bond guns the engine and rips towards Jack. He flips the
“Afterburner” switch. Bond is forced into his seat as the car
screams toward Jack.

Jack looks to his right and sees Bond coming, but too late.

Bond presses a button labeled “Eject.” The roof opens over
Bond’s head and Bond is ejected out of the car.

SMASH! Bond’s car slams into Jack’s. The momentum
pushes the cars through the flood wall and into the Seine.
SPLASH!

The cars sink beneath the water. Jack lies dead in his seat.

Bond’s parachute deploys and he gently floats to the
ground. He lands and releases himself from the seat. He
stands up and straightens his jacket.

A man watches Bond, mouth agape.

                    BOND
        Apologies, I seem to be slightly 
        late for D-Day.

Bond walks away, smiling.

INT. SHATTERHAND’S OFFICE - PARIS - LATER

The room is dimly lit. Shatterhand sits behind a desk in his
wheelchair. Bunt stands next to him.

Bunt addresses a guard by the door.

                    BUNT
        Send them in.

The guard opens the door and Tiffany Case and a badly
injured Peter Franks enter. They stop in front of
Shatterhand and Bunt.

                    SHATTERHAND
        We had an unexpected guest 
        tonight. You have failed us.

Bunt looks at Tiffany.

                    SHATTERHAND
        You were visited by a man this 
        afternoon. Do you his name?

                    TIFFANY
        No, just that it wasn't Peter 
        Franks.

                    SHATTERHAND
        He is James Bond of the British 
        Secret Service.

                    FRANKS
        She led him here.

                    SHATTERHAND
        This is true.

Shatterhand motions Bunt to him. She bends down and
listens to him.

                    SHATTERHAND
        You know the penalty for failure.

Tiffany looks terrified. Franks has a smug look on his face.

BANG! Tiffany flinches, but isn’t hit. Franks falls to the floor
dead, shot by the guard at the door.

                    SHATTERHAND
        He allowed Bond to overpower him 
        and infiltrate our operation.

Tiffany breathes rapidly.

                    SHATTERHAND
        You failed us as well Miss Case. 
        However, you still have some 
        usefullness.

                    TIFFANY
        What do you want me to do?

                    SHATTERHAND
        Be Mr. Bond's weakness.

                    TIFFANY
        What do you mean?

                    BUNT
        You're a woman.

                    SHATTERHAND
        Indeed. (beat) You will go Las Vegas. 
        You will receive further instructions on 
        where to lead Mr. Bond, when you 
        arrive.

Tiffany nods. She heads for the door.

                    SHATTERHAND
        Oh and Miss Case...

Tiffany turns back to Bunt.

                    SHATTERHAND
        Fail us again, your punishment will 
        not be as easy as his.

Tiffany stiffens up.

                    TIFFANY
        Yes, Number 1.

She turns and exits through the door.

EXT. LAS VEGAS - DAY

Establishing shot of Las Vegas showing the strip and the
desert.

EXT. LAS VEGAS AIRPORT - DAY

Bond, smartly dressed, disembarks from his plane carrying a
briefcase and walks towards the terminal. He is stopped by a
tall man wearing a Customs uniform. This is Felix Leiter.

                    FELIX
        Sorry sir, you must submit your 
        case for inspection.

Bond stops and looks at the man.

                    BOND
        Well, well, Felix Leiter you old fraud.

                    FELIX
        I told you we'd see each other again.

Bond and Felix shake hands. Bond hands his passport over.
Felix reads it.

                    FELIX
        Peter Franks, international diamond 
        smuggler, sorry trader. Interesting 
        cover.

Felix opens the case and pretends to inspect it.

                    BOND
        Not much of one, I'm pretty sure 
        SPECTRE know it's me.

                    FELIX
        Why have they allowed you to come 
        there then?

                    BOND
        That's the question of the hour, isn't 
        it?

Felix pauses.

                    FELIX
        Where are the diamonds?

                    BOND
        Alimentary, Dr. Leiter.

Felix gives Bond a disapproving look.

                    FELIX
        I didn't need to know that, James.

Bond reaches into the case and lifts away the false bottom
revealing a black pouch.

                    BOND
        Diplomatic bag.

Felix approves. He shuts the case and returns both the
case and the passport.

                    FELIX
        Everything seems to be in order, Mr. 
        Franks. Welcome to the United 
        States.

Bond takes the passport and pockets it. He continues his
trek towards the terminal.

EXT. DEPARTURES - AIRPORT - MOMENTS LATER

Bond emerges from the terminal into the sun-scorched heat
of Las Vegas.

A cab pulls up in front of him. Bond enters the car.

                    CAB DRIVER
        Where to?

                    BOND
        Shady Tree.

The car pulls out of the Las Vegas Airport.

EXT. LAS VEGAS STRIP - DAY

Establishing shot of the Las Vegas strip. Close up of the
“Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign. The afternoon sun
bathes the strip as the cab passes by.

The car comes to a stop in front of the Shady Tree casino.

                    CAB DRIVER
        Shady Tree.

                    BOND
        Thank you.

Bond exits the car and pulls some cash from his pocket. He
reaches through the passenger window and pays the cab
driver. Bond turns and walks to the casino entrance.

Back in the car, the cab driver reaches for his radio. He presses
a button on the dash.

                    CAB DRIVER
        He's arrived.

The cab driver replaces the receiver and drives off.

INT. SHADY TREE RECEPTION - MOMENTS LATER

Bond walks through the glamorous lobby of the Shady Tree. He
comes to a stop at the desk, in front of an attractive, dark-haired
receptionist. Her name tag reads PLENTY O’TOOLE.

                    PLENTY
        Good evening sir, welcome to the 
        Shady Tree Resort and Casino. My 
        name is Plenty O'Toole. How may I 
        assist you?

                    BOND
        Named for your father no doubt. I 
        have a reservation, the name is 
        Franks.

The receptionist checks her register and finds the name. She
takes out a form and hands it to Bond.

                    PLENTY
        Sign here, please.

Bond signs as Peter Franks.

                    PLENTY
        Your key and you have a message.

She hands Bond a slip of paper. Bond turns it over and reads:
MUD BATHS, LOCKER 13, 5:00 STOP.

Bond pockets the message and takes his key.

                    PLENTY
        Enjoy the Shady Tree. May your 
        stay be prosperous and fulfilling.

                    BOND
        I'm sure I'll fit in just fine.

Bond takes his key and leaves.

INT. HOTEL SPA RECEPTION - LATER

Bond enters a luxurious spa. The room is white with glass
windows and walls. Bond walks to the desk, an attractive,
blonde woman, 20s, smiles at him. This is Madeleine.

                    MADELEINE
        Good afternoon sir, how may I be 
        of service?

                    BOND
        I have an appointment for the mud 
        baths under the name is Franks. 
        But my name is Bond, James Bond.

Madeleine checks the ledger and finds his name.

                    MADELEINE
        Ah yes, reservation for Franks. Follow 
        me, Mr. Bond.

Madeleine walks through the door behind her. Bond admires
her as she moves. He follows.

INT. SPA CORRIDOR - CONTINUOUS

Bond follows Madeleine through a white corridor with doors
on either side. She stops in front a door labeled “Changing
Room”.

                    MADELEINE
        You can change in here.

                    BOND
        Alone?

Madeleine smiles.

                    MADELEINE
        There will be a robe for you and a 
        place to leave you belongings. I'll 
        wait for you out here, Mr. Bond.

Bond enters the changing room.

INT. CHANGING ROOM - CONTINUOUS

The locker room is rather upscale. Bond walks to locker 13.
He removes the diamond pouch and checks it. Satisfied,
Bond opens the locker and places the diamonds inside.

INT. SPA CORRIDOR - MOMENTS LATER

Bond emerges wearing just a white robe. Madeleine smiles
at Bond and motions for him to follow.

                    BOND
        Will you be helping me into the mud 
        bath?

                    MADELEINE
        I am the nurse on duty. It is my job.

They stop in front of room 13. Madeleine opens the door.
They enter.

INT. ROOM 13 - CONTINUOUS

The room is small and contains a bathtub filled with mud.

                    MADELEINE
        You may put your robe on the hook 
        here and climb in.

                    BOND
        This tub is rather big. Will you be 
        joining me?

                    MADELEINE
        The mud is heated to 100 degrees 
        fahrenheit. My skin is too sensitive.

                    BOND
        Oh I don't believe that.

Madeleine sighs.

                    MADELEINE
        Get in.

Bond takes off his robe and hangs it up. Madeleine casually
looks away. Bond gets into the mud.

                    MADELEINE
        I will check on you shortly. Enjoy 
        Mr. Bond.

Bond smiles to himself as Madeleine leaves.

INT. SPA CORRIDOR - MOMENTS LATER

Two men in suits emerge from the locker room. They walk
towards Bond’s room and enter.

INT. ROOM 13 - CONTINUOUS

Bond’s eyes are closed, only his head is above the mud.
Wint and Kidd look at him.

Wint and Kidd smile at each other. Kidd walks over to a
panel on the wall. These are the controls for the mud and tub.

Kidd turns up the heat and presses a button releasing more
mud into the tub.

Bond snaps to alert, but too late. He thrashes, but is buried
under a mountain of hot mud. Some mud splashes onto Wint’s
and Kidd’s suits.

Kidd releases the button.

                    WINT
        A mud bath can be such a 
        treacherous place.

Wint and Kidd leave.

INT. SPA CORRIDOR - CONTINUOUS

Wint and Kidd, with mud spatter, walk down the hall passing
Madeleine on the way.

She looks at them suspicious. They exit into the spa lobby.
Madeleine rushes to Bond’s room and enters.

INT. ROOM 13 - CONTINUOUS

Madeleine enters and sees the mountain of mud. She climbs up
to the counter around the tub.

She reaches into the hot mud. She grabs Bond’s hands and pulls.

Bond slowly emerges from the gurgling mud. Covered in mud,
Madeleine drags Bond to the counter and lays him down.

She begins to perform CPR. She presses his chest and blows air
into his lungs. Nothing.

She repeats the process. Still nothing. She slaps his face.

                    MADELEINE
        Mr. Bond! Wake up Mr. Bond!

She pumps his chest and blows air into him, a third time.

Bond spits up mud and coughs.

                    MADELEINE
        Oh Mr. Bond, thank god.

Bond sits up coughing. He can’t speak.

                    MADELEINE
        Come with me.

Madeleine helps Bond up. He leans on her and they move towards
the door.

INT. PRIVATE SHOWER - MOMENTS LATER

Madeleine brings Bond into a private shower. She turns on the
water and drenches herself and Bond.

The mud washes off. Bond begins to control his breathing.

                    MADELEINE
        Mr. Bond, are you okay?

                    BOND
        Never better.

                    MADELEINE
        You could have been killed.

                    BOND
        You gave me the kiss of life.

Madeleine looks deeply into Bond’s eyes. He lifts off Madeleine’s
shirt.

                    BOND
        Let's get you out of these dirty 
        things.

                    MADELEINE
        Oh James....

Bond and Madeleine kiss passionately. Camera pans out as
steam rises, obscuring the view.

INT. BOND’S SUITE - LATER

The room is large with a strange fish tank bed. Bond and
Madeleine lie in it. They are naked under the blankets, smoking
cigarettes.

                    MADELEINE
        This day....

Madeleine tapers off.

                    BOND
        What happens in Vegas....

Madeleine giggles. Bond takes a puff on his cigarette.

                    BOND
        What's the time?

                    MADELEINE
        Who cares?

Bond checks his watch, 10:30.

                    BOND
        I must go.

Madeleine gets up slightly and looks at him, dejected.

                    MADELEINE
        Why?

                    BOND
        I have a private table set up.

                    MADELEINE
        What could be more private than 
        this?

Bond crushes out his cigarette.

                    BOND
        Why don't you join me?

                    MADELEINE
        But I've nothing to wear.

                    BOND
        We'll change that.

Bond and Madeleine kiss.


#3

INT. SHADY TREE’S CASINO - LATER

Bond and Madeleine, dressed in a tuxedo and a purple dress,
respectively, arrive in the casino. Bond carries casino plaques.

They walk pass numerous tables and machines stopping a
black jack table. The tabletop is green with the Shady Tree logo
in the middle.

Bond places the plaques on the table. He has $50,000. The
blackjack dealer looks at Bond.

                    BLACKJACK DEALER
        Good evening sir.

                    BOND
        Good evening, my name is Franks 
        and this is my companion, Madeleine.

                    MADELEINE
        Hello.

                    BOND
        Let's play.

The dealer deals his cards. Bond places his bets. Bond hits on
two hands and holds on the other three. The dealer flips over
his cards. He hits twice: dealer bust.

Bond wins on all five. He is up $10,000. Madeleine smiles. The
dealer gives Bond his plaques and deals again.

INT. SHADY TREE CASINO - SOMETIME LATER

Bond and Madeleine sit at the table. Bond is up $150,000. The
dealer is stoic. Madeleine smiles.

                    MADELEINE
        Lady luck is with you tonight.

                    BOND
        She is stunning in that dress.

Madeleine blushes and drapes herself around Bond.

Just then, another dealer shows up. She picks up the cards and
shuffles them. Bond looks up at her. He is looking at Tiffany Case.

                    TIFFANY
        New dealer.

Bond’s demeanor changes. He turns to Madeleine. He
addresses her sternly.

                    BOND
        Madeleine would you get me a drink? 
        A vodka martini--

                    MADELEINE
              (interrupts)
        But I--

                    BOND
        Shaken (beat) not stirred.

                    MADELEINE
        Okay.

Madeleine’s smile is gone. She departs. Bond turns back to Tiffany.

                    BOND
        What are you doing here, Miss 
        Case?

                    TIFFANY
        Same as you, Mr. Franks. Or 
        should I say Bond....

Bond leans back. Tiffany deals the cards.

                   BOND
        Am I to lose now?

                   TIFFANY
        Yes, but not much.

Tiffany turns over her cards: dealer blackjack. She collects Bond’s
plaques.

                    BOND
        I guess lady luck is no more.

Bond gets up to leave. Tiffany follows.

                    TIFFANY
        You should walk straight out of this 
        casino and never look back.

Bond stops at looks deep into her eyes, coldly.

                    BOND
        Take me to Shady Tree.

                    TIFFANY
        You don't want to go there.

Bond withdraws his PPK and points it at her, taking care to keep it
out of sight from other patrons.

                    BOND
        Now.

                    TIFFANY
        Fine.

Tiffany leads Bond off the casino floor. They exit through a door.

From afar, Madeleine watches them. She holds up Bond’s martini.

                    MADELEINE
         James!

He doesn’t hear her. Madeleine looks dejected. She sits down
and downs his drink.

From the other side of the room, Wint and Kidd sit watching
Madeleine. They get up and begin walking over to her.

EXT. SHADY TREE’S SUITE - MOMENTS LATER

Bond and Tiffany arrive outside a set of large double doors with
gold handles. Tiffany stops and turns to Bond.

                    TIFFANY
        Are you sure this is what you want?

                    BOND
        Open the door.

                    TIFFANY
        It's your funeral, Mr. Bond.

Tiffany opens the door and the two enter.

INT. SHADY TREE’S SUITE - CONTINUOUS

The office is spacious. Various furnishings lie about the room.
It is mostly white and steel. It isn’t very inviting.

Bond follows Tiffany, his gun still trained on her. They search
the room, but don’t see anyone.

                     BOND
        Where is he?

                    TIFFANY
        Not here, obviously.

Bond moves about the room. He sees Tree’s desk at the back
wall. The chair is turned backwards. Bond moves towards it.

He spins the chair around, revealing the dead body of Shady
Tree.

                    BOND
        He's dead.

Suddenly, Bond convulses. He reaches for his neck and feels
a dart. He pulls it out and looks at it.

Tiffany raises her lipstick to Bond, showing him it’s a
concealed dart gun.

                    TIFFANY
        I warned you.

                    BOND
        Bitch....

Bond falls to the floor unconscious.

INT. JAIL CELL - SPECTREVILLE, NEVADA - DAY

Bond sits tied to a chair in a dank room. The walls are musty
and the wood is rotted. Bond’s tuxedo is dirty. Sweat drips down
his face.

Slowly Bond comes to. He explores his surroundings and spots
a rat on the floor.

He smells something foul.

                    BOND
        One of us smells like a tart's 
        handkerchief.

Bond smells his lapel.

                    BOND
        I'm afraid its me, sorry about that.

KNOCK! KNOCK! The rat scurries off. The door opens and
in walks Serrafimo Spang, dressed in a white pinstriped suit.

                    SERRAFIMO
        James Bond.

                    BOND
        Who wants to know?

Serrafimo stops in front of Bond.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Dont' tell me you've already forgotten 
        about me.

                    BOND
        Paris.

Serrafimo nods.

                    SERRAFIMO
        You took something from me.

                    BOND
        It's at the bottom of the Seine. Let 
        me out of this chair and I'll help you 
        find it.

Serrafimo’s demeanor changes.

                    SERRAFIMO
        IT (beat) was my brother, Mr. Bond.

                    BOND
        He was a murderer. Trust me, he 
        won't take it personally.

                    SERRAFIMO
        But I do.

Serrafimo pulls up a chair and sits across from Bond.

                    SERRAFIMO
        I know everything about you, 
        Mr. Bond.

                    BOND
        I'm flattered SPECTRE still talk 
        about me.

Serrafimo laughs.

                    SERRAFIMO
        You've made for a formidable 
        adversary. I'll give you that. (beat) 
        And all great adversaries need a 
        great end.

Serrafimo stands ups. He unties Bond.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Follow me.

Bond rubs his wrists and follows.

EXT. SPECTREVILLE STREETS - CONTINUOUS

Bond follows Serrafimo outside. The scene is of a classic old
western town. The sun drenches the dirt road and old western
buildings.

Bond removes his bow tie and unbuttons the top two buttons
on his shirt. He buttons his jacket.

Bond reads a sign over the entrance to the street:
SPECTREVILLE.

Serrafimo walks to a table set up in front of a general store. He
stops. Tiffany Case is sitting in a chair at the table. Two
henchman are behind her. Bond is next to Serrafimo.

                    BOND
        Spectreville? A little on the nose 
        isn't it?

                    SERRAFIMO
        Trust me Mr. Bond, there is far more 
        to this place, than you think.

                    BOND
        Are we actually in a hollowed out 
        volcano?

Serrafimo humors Bond.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Make your jokes, while you can. 
        Soon, you won't make any ever again.

Bond turns to address Tiffany.

                    BOND
        And what about the dragon lady 
        over here?

                    SERRAFIMO
        Miss Case has played her part 
        magnificently.

                    BOND
              (to Tiffany)
        You know, my dear Tiffany. The 
        pipeline is closing.

Tiffany looks to Bond.

                    TIFFANY
        For you, maybe.

Serrafimo opens a case on the table. Inside are two derringers.
He removes them.

                    SERRAFIMO
        The Henry Derringer Pocket Pistol. 
        The very weapon that killed President 
        Abraham Lincoln.

He hands one to Bond with a small holster.

                    SERRAFIMO
        I offer you a challenge, Mr. Bond.

Bond checks the henchmen. They are holding assault rifles.

                    BOND
        Do I have a choice?

                    SERRAFIMO
        Sure you do. You can either face me, 
        as a gentleman--

Serrafimo motions to the henchmen who point their guns at
Bond.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Or you can die now.

Bond studies the situation.

                    BOND
        I guess I accept.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Smashing. (to Tiffany) Will you be 
        staying?

                    TIFFANY
        I don't like cock fights.

Tiffany gets up and leaves.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Feisty that one. (beat) The rules are 
        simple Mr. Bond. Flinch and you lose. 
        Fire too early (points toward 
        henchmen) and they will kill you.

Serrafimo walks to his spot. At gunpoint, Bond walks to his,
making the distance 10 yards. They stare at each other,
guns holsters on their hips.

Bond’s gaze is unfazing. Serrafimo’s hand shakes. He grabs
his gun.

BANG! Bond reacts in time and Serrafimo’s shot misses. BANG!
Bond’s aim is on target, but Serrafimo is unhit. He laughs.

Bond figures it out.

                    BOND
        Blanks.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Just so, Mr. Bond. That was only a 
        warm-up. The real game begins now.

                    BOND
        Enough games.

Bond throws the useless derringer on the table. Serrafimo shakes
his head, ignoring Bond’s reaction.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Come with me, Mr. Bond. I want to 
        show you something.

Bond doesn’t move.

                    SERRAFIMO
              (to henchmen)
        Bring him.

Serrafimo heads towards what looks like a General Store. The
henchmen hit Bond with their rifles and drag him after Serrafimo.

INT. GENERAL STORE/LAB - MOMENTS LATER

The inside of the building is nothing like a General Store. The
room is gray with various pieces of medical and scientific
equipment. There is a glass partition separating Bond and a
torture room.

There is a blonde woman tied up in a chair. Her face is obscured.
Serrafimo puts on a pair of surgical gloves and grabs a gas mask.

He carefully picks up a diamond necklace from the table. He
holds it up for Bond to see.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Magnificent isn't it?

                    BOND
        You want to show me jewelry.

                    SERRAFIMO
        Where's your imagination Mr. Bond? 
        This isn't just any piece of jewelry. 
        These are the very diamonds you 
        smuggled for us.

                    BOND
        Are you thanking me?

                    SERRAFIMO
        Of course not. I'm teaching you a 
        lesson.

Serrafimo presses a code on a keypad and passes through a
door in the glass partition. He stops behind the woman. He lifts
her head. Bond gets a clear view of her: Madeleine.

Bond tenses up. Madeleine is bruised and tears run down her
face.

                    SERRAFIMO
              (to Bond)
        The game is not to flinch.

Madeleine cries and pleads with Serrafimo.

                    MADELEINE
        Please let me go.

                    BOND
        Let her go, Spang. I'm the one you 
        want, not her.

                    SERRAFIMO
        That is precisely why she is the one 
        I want. (to Madeleine) A gift to you, 
        my dear, courtesy of MI6 and James 
        Bond.

Madeleine looks to Bond, terrified. Serrafimo places the
diamond necklace around her neck. She screams in agony.
Serrafimo puts on his gas mask.

                    MADELEINE
        James!

Bond moves toward the room, but the henchmen stop him.
He is helpless to save Madeleine.

Her screams die out and she goes limp.

                    SERRAFIMO
        You flinched.

                    BOND
        You will pay for that, I promise you.

Serrafimo motions for the henchmen who force Bond into the
torture room. One of the henchmen hits Bond in the stomach.
He falls to one knee. He clutches his chest and his breathing
becomes more laboured.

Serrafimo removes the necklace from Madeleine’s body. He
shoves it into Bond’s hand.

                    SERRAFIMO
        A parting gift from my brother. 
        Farewell, Mr. Bond.

Serrafimo leaves and locks the glass door behind him. Bond
drops the necklace and clutches his chest. He grits his teeth.

Bond falls to his knees. The pain is too great. He won’t last
much longer.

Out of the corner of his eye, Bond sees the two henchmen
collapse. BANG! Serrafimo falls down dead.

Through Bond’s POV, the scene is blurred. The door opens
and a figure throws him something. It rolls to a stop. A woman’s
voice speaks to him. He recognizes it.

                    TIFFANY
        Take it now. It'll suppress the 
        symptoms.

Bond takes the syringe and injects it into his neck. His breathing
starts to stabilize. A gas mask is thrown and lands in front of
Bond.

                    TIFFANY
        Put it on and come outside, quickly, 
        before more guards show up.

She leaves and Bond dons the gas mask, whilst pulling himself
to his feet. He stumbles out of the torture room.

EXT. SPECTREVILLE STREETS - SECONDS LATER

Bond stumbles out of the General Store/Lab. A range rover pulls
up in front of him. Tiffany is in the driver’s seat.

                    TIFFANY
        Get in.

                    BOND
        You gonna try and shoot me?

                    TIFFANY
        I said get in.

Bond hears shouting in the distance. He hurries around the car
and enters the passenger side. Tiffany drives off in a cloud of dust.

Bond’s vision continues to blur. The screen fades to black.

INT. BEDROOM - LAS VEGAS - DAY

Bond awakens in a white room adorned with circle patterns and
psychadelic colors. It is very much out of the late 60s.

Bond searches around the room, but all is fuzzy.

                    BOND
              (groggily)
        Where am I?

                    TIFFANY
        My house.

Tiffany comes into focus in front of Bond.

                    TIFFANY
        Here, drink this.

Tiffany hands Bond a glass with water. Bond sits up and drinks.

                    BOND
        Why am I here?

Bond gives the glass back to Tiffany who sets it on the
nightstand.

                    TIFFANY
        You were dying. I had to take you 
        somewhere to treat you.

Bond thinks back to his ordeal.

                    BOND
        The diamonds, when I touched them 
        (beat) I felt like I was having a heart 
        attack.

                    TIFFANY
        It's a virus.

                    BOND
        A virus?

Tiffany stands up and starts pacing.

                    TIFFANY
        The organization I work for, the one 
        whose meeting you attended--

                    BOND
        SPECTRE.

                    TIFFANY
        They created a virus that attacks the 
        circulatory system and causes the 
        heart to shutdown.

Tiffany lights a cigarette, her pacing becomes more frantic.

                    TIFFANY
        They plan on using it on the whole world.

                    BOND
        You were going along with this?

                    TIFFANY
        I don't care about the world or anyone in it. They 
        certainly don't care about me.

Tiffany begins to cry.

                    BOND
        So why save me?

                    TIFFANY
        Because of the girl.

                    BOND
        Madeleine?

                    TIFFANY
        I had never seen the virus before. But watching 
        her convulse and choke and suffer....

Tiffany is trembling uncontrollably.

                    TIFFANY
        I saved you because I think you can stop them.

Bond stands up. He has pants, but no shirt. He moves to
and hugs Tiffany.

                    BOND
        I can, but you need to tell me 
        everything.

Tiffany nods.

                    TIFFANY
        I will.

                    BOND
        Who is Dr. Shatterhand?

                    TIFFANY
        He's the head of SPECTRE. We 
        call him number 1. But Shatterhand 
        is an alias.

                    BOND
        I figured that. What's his real name?

                    TIFFANY
        Franz Oberhauser.

Bond pauses. He walks towards the window and looks
out. The morning sun shines over Las Vegas.

                    BOND
        Oberhauser is dead.

Bond ruminates over this revelation. He sees clothes on
the table. He walks over and puts on a blue collared T-shirt.

                    BOND
        Where?

                    TIFFANY
        New Orleans.

Tiffany is silent. Bond uses a telephone on the table. He
inputs a number and waits. RING! RING! An answer.

                    FELIX (O.S.)
        Leiter.

                    BOND
        It's Bond, Blofeld is alive.

                    FELIX (O.S.)
        What?! Are you sure?

                    BOND
        I need you to arrange a train for two 
        to New Orleans.

                    FELIX (O.S.)
        Not a flight?

                    BOND
        A plane is too obvious.

                    FELIX (O.S.)
        Done. When you arrive, go to the 
        cathedral in Jackson Square.

                    BOND
        Copy all of this to M. See you soon, 
        Felix.

Bond hangs up the phone and turns to Tiffany.

                    BOND
        Back your bags. We're leaving.

#4

INT. TIFFANY’S TRAIN CAR - TEXAS - DAY

Bond and Tiffany sit on opposite sides of a table, while the Texan
countryside whizzes by outside.

Bond stares at Tiffany, who doesn’t look at him.

                    BOND
        I can protect you, Tiffany. You have 
        my word.

Tiffany sighs and looks at Bond.

                    TIFFANY
        Your word? A man's word isn't worth 
        the breath it's spat out with.

Bond places his gun on the table.

                    BOND
        That's my word.

Tiffany reaches for the gun and picks it up. She examines it.

                    TIFFANY
        I imagine I could shoot you right 
        now.

                    BOND
        You could. (beat) But I don't think 
        you will.

Tiffany points the gun at Bond.

                    TIFFANY
        Why not? I'm already dead. I was 
        dead the moment you entered my 
        shop.

Bond doesn’t flinch.

                    BOND
        You could have killed me then, but 
        you missed (beat) deliberately.

                    TIFFANY
        Why do you say that?

                    BOND
        Because you need me. I promise, I 
        can protect you. But you need to 
        help me. Tell me about the diamond 
        operation.

Tiffany holds her gaze. She relents and places the gun on the
table.

                    TIFFANY
        It starts in South Africa. The diamonds 
        are mined by forced labor. The men 
        visit a doctor who pays them English 
        pounds for smuggling out extra 
        diamonds. The diamonds are airlifted to 
        a nun, who uses her charities to get the 
        diamonds to my shop in Paris. I take the 
        diamonds to Schiarra in Las Vegas, or I 
        did before you killed him. Schiarra used 
        Shady Tree's company to bring the 
        diamonds to New Orleans, where they get 
        shipped all over.

                    BOND
        And what of the virus? How are SPECTRE 
        planning to disperse it?

                    TIFFANY
        I don't know.

Bond sits back in reflection.

                    BOND
        SPECTRE smuggles diamonds from 
        South Africa to launder in the West 
        and created a deadly virus. What's 
        the connection?

Tiffany shrugs.

                    BOND
        Madeleine wasn't affected until 
        Serrafimo placed the diamonds around 
        her neck. For me, the pain was much 
        more intense when I held the necklace.

                    TIFFANY
        He was wearing surgical gloves.

                    BOND
        Nor did he put his gas mask on until 
        after the diamonds were around her 
        neck.

It clicks for Bond.

                    BOND
        The virus isn't airborne until someone 
        is infected. It's transmitted through the 
        skin, then the infected becomes a carrier. 
        They must be coating the diamonds in it. 
        But why?

                    TIFFANY
        I'm tired, can we continue this later?

                    BOND
        Of course.

Bond gets up to leave. He turns to took at Tiffany, who appears
to be staring blankly out the window.

INT. DINING CAR - SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS - LATER

Mood lighting illuminates a mostly empty dining car. Bond,
dressed in a white-jacket tuxedo, waits at a table.

Bond looks up to Tiffany striding in wearing a low cut black
dress. Bond stands up to greet her. Tiffany is ravishing.

                    TIFFANY
        Thank you, James.

Bond takes his seat opposite her.

                    BOND
        You look stunning.

                    TIFFANY
        What, this old thing?

Tiffany blushes. She looks at Bond.

                    TIFFANY
        What do you know of the Alamo?

                    BOND
        Mexican forces invade San Antonio 
        to quell the Texian rebellion. 
        Casualties included William Travis, 
        Jim Bowie, and Davy Crockett. The 
        Republic of Texas was born soon 
        after. What of it?

                    TIFFANY
        It is also my home.

Bond acknowledges the stress in her voice. He lights a cigarette.

                    BOND
        San Antonio has a Tiffany and Co.?

Tiffany shakes her head.

                    TIFFANY
        My father's name was Case. He wed 
        my mother when she was only 16. 
        When I was born, he was so enraged 
        that I wasn't a boy, he gave my mother 
        one thousand dollars and a powder 
        case from Tiffany's, before abandoning 
        her. My mother was Italian, she couldn't 
        speak English. So she named me after 
        what she saw.

                    BOND
        Hence, Tiffany Case.

Tiffany nodded.

                    TIFFANY
        My mother was my whole world. She 
        worked tirelessly to provide for me, 
        even after she was diagnosed with 
        cancer.

Tiffany takes out a cigarette. Bond lights it for her.

                    TIFFANY
        I know, the irony right?

Tiffany takes a long puff of smoke.

                    BOND
        No judgement, here.

                    TIFFANY
        After she died, I went to live with my 
        father. It was the worst mistake of my 
        life.

Bond leans in.

                    TIFFANY
        One day, he said he was going out 
        for cigarettes. While he was gone, 
        a man came into the house. He tied 
        me up.

Tiffany’s voice cracks and she trembles.

                    TIFFANY
        I was gangraped by scores of men.

                    BOND
        You don't have to--

                    TIFFANY
        It's quite alright, James. Eventually, 
        one of the men got me pregnant. My 
        father forced me to have an abortion 
        and kicked me out.

                    BOND
        What did you do next?

                    TIFFANY
        I set the house on fire. Then, I left San 
        Antonio and vowed never to come back.

Bond sits back taking it all in.

                    BOND
        I'm very sorry.

                    TIFFANY
        I've learned to accept my past.

                    BOND
        So what brought you to SPECTRE?

                    TIFFANY
        I was promised a way out.

                    BOND
        Did you know what they do?

                    TIFFANY
        I learned, but it didn't matter to me. 
        I don't care about men killing other 
        men.

Tiffany exhales smoke into Bond’s face. She crushes out her
cigarette. She changes the subject.

                    TIFFANY
        Tell me, Mr. Bond, James Bond. What 
        drives you? What brought you into my 
        shop and into my life?

                    BOND
        SPECTRE. (beat) They killed an 
        acquaintance of mine.

                    TIFFANY
        Another mistress?

Bond winces at the remark and shakes his head.

                    BOND
        My wife.

Tiffany recognizes the hurt in his voice.

                    TIFFANY
        I'm sorry, James.

                    BOND
        I killed her murderer, two years ago. 
        Or at least I thought I did. I've spent 
        the last two years, trying to track 
        down the remnants of his 
        organization. Marco Schiarra was 
        the key.

                    TIFFANY
        That's what led you to me?

                    BOND
        Yes, then you led me to the meeting 
        with their new leader, Shatterhand. 
        You said his real name is Oberhauser?

Tiffany looks puzzled.

                    TIFFANY
        What are you saying?

                    BOND
        Franz Oberhauser was an SS officer 
        who defected to the allies toward the 
        end of World War II. When he came 
        to the West, he changed his name.

                    TIFFANY
        What did he change it to?

                    BOND
        Ernst Stavro Blofeld, (beat) and I 
        thought he was dead, until yesterday.

Bond withdraws his PPK and gazes at it. He sighs and places
it on the table.

                    BOND
        When this affair is over, when 
        Oberhauser, if he is in fact Blofeld 
        is dead and SPECTRE is buried, I 
        will be done killing.

Tiffany looks longingly into his eyes.

                    TIFFANY
        Are you sure?

                    BOND
        When you do what I've done for too 
        long, at the end there may be no soul 
        left to salvage. I'm leaving with what 
        little I have left.

Tiffany reaches across the table and holds Bond’s hand. Bond
and Tiffany share a longing gaze. They lean across the table
and kiss.

Just then, two men arrive with a dinner cart. We recognize them
as Wint and Kidd dressed as waiters.

                    BOND
              (softly)
        Wonderful timing.

                    WINT
        Dinner is served.

                    BOND
        There must be some mistake, we 
        haven't ordered yet.

Wint smiles.

                    WINT
        No mistake sir, compliments of the 
        house.

Kidd unveils the feast as Wint explains in a seductive tone.

                    WINT
        Oysters andaluz, fire-roasted 
        skewers, tidbits, steak au poivre....

Kidd kneels down and pours a liquid into each of the bowls of
caviar. He grabs the bowls and stands up.

                    WINT
        And for dessert, fresh from the 
        Caspian, Beluga caviar.

Wint grabs a bottle of wine and displays it.

                    WINT
        Mouton Rothschild  '55.

POP! Wint uncorks the wine and pours glasses each for
Bond and Tiffany. He hands Bond the cork. Bond sniffs it.

                    KIDD
        We just need a moment, then we will 
        leave you to rest in peace.

Bond sips his wine, while Wint places the oysters in front
of Bond and Tiffany.

                    BOND
        That's rather potent. Not the cork, 
        your aftershave. Strong enough to 
        tie up anyone.

Wint flinches at Bond’s revelation.

                    BOND
        The wine's rather excellent. Though 
        for a meal this grande, I would rather 
        have expected a claret.

                    WINT
        Apologies, unfortunately our cellar is 
        currently out of clarets.

Bond’s rouse worked.

                    BOND
        Mouton Rothschild is a claret (beat) and 
        I've smelt that aftershave before and 
        both times I've smelt a rat.

Kidd lights the skewers on fire and advances towards
Bond and Tiffany.

Wint pulls a knife and swipes at Bond who blocks with
his arm. Bond smashes the bottle of wine and douses
Kidd. The alcohol ignites the skewers and Kidd is
engulfed in flames.

Kidd screams and runs to the front of the car and jumps
off the train.

Wint watches in horror. He attacks Bond who is bleeding
from his arm.

Bond and Wint fight hand-to-hand. Bond wrests the knife
from Wint and it falls to the floor. Tiffany tries to intervene,
but Wint punches her, knocking her down.

The distraction allows Bond to withdraw his PPK, but Wint
is on Bond. They struggle and Wint causes Bond to drop
the gun.

Wint throws Bond against a booth. Bond pops up and avoids
a kick from Wint. He pushes Wint backwards into a table.
Bond escapes to the end of the car.

Wint is up and jumps on top of Bond. They tumble into the
next car.

INT. BAR CAR - CONTINUOUS

Bond and Wint continue fighting. Bond grabs a gas candle
and throws it at Wint. The candle shatters inflaming Wint’s
coat.

Wint struggles out of the burning jacket. Bond lunges at
Wint and punches. Wint grabs Bond and whips him toward
the end of the car.

Bond runs into the next car.

INT. STORAGE CAR - CONTINUOUS

The room is the pantry for the train. There are crates and
beer kegs along the wall.

Bond punches Wint, but Wint deflects. He wraps his hands
around Bond’s neck. Bond struggles, but to no avail. Wint
releases a lever, opening the large door. WHOOSH! The wind
howls by.

Bond falls to his knees, he thrashes, but is losing energy.

BANG! Wint is hit in the arm and releases his grip on Bond who
falls to the floor. Bond gasps for air.

Wint turns to face his attacker. BANG! Tiffany, holding Bond’s
PPK, fires again and hits Wint in the stomach. Wint clutches at
his bleeding torso.

Tiffany moves closer. CLICK! The gun jams! Wint hits Tiffany,
but the distraction is enough.

Bond grabs a chain and wraps it around Wint’s neck. Bond kicks
the first keg out of the opening.

The chain loses slack as one by one the kegs are sucked out
into the night.

Wint realizes too late what is about to happen.

He stares at Bond, terrified. The last keg falls out and Wint is
sucked out into the darkness.

Bond rushes to Tiffany, who is sitting up. They are both panting,
the adrenaline is flowing.

They look at each other.

                    TIFFANY
        What do we do now?

INT. TIFFANY’S TRAIN CAR - MOMENTS LATER

Bond and Tiffany are kissing passionately, tearing each others’
clothes off. Bond lays Tiffany down on the bed and the two make
love.

END: ACT II


#5

EXT. JACKSON SQUARE - NEW ORLEANS - DAY

Wideshot of New Orleans pans to Bond and Tiffany exiting a cab.
The cab departs and leaves the pair in front of the garden at
Jackson Square.

                    TIFFANY
        Now what?

                    BOND
        We wait for Felix.

Just then a man approaches. He is dressed as one of the carriage
drivers.

                    CARRIAGE DRIVER
        Mr. Bond?

                    BOND
        Yes?

                    CARRIAGE DRIVER
        Felix Leiter sent me to collect you.

                    BOND
        He's not meeting us here?

                    carriage driver
        He said it's too public. Follow me.

                    TIFFANY
              (to Bond)
        This doesn't seem right.

                    BOND
        I agree, stay behind me.

Bond and Tiffany follow the carriage driver to his horse drawn
carriage.

                    CARRIAGE DRIVER
        Please be comfortable.

Bond and Tiffany climb into the carriage and watch as New
Orleans’ French Quarter passes by.

EXT. FERRY TERMINAL - MOMENTS LATER

The carriage stops at the Algiers Ferry Terminal on the
Mississippi River. A large, old-fashioned steamboat is moored
to the dock.

A woman comes to greet them. A large hat obstructs her face.
She stops at the carriage and looks at Bond. It is Irma Bunt.

                    BUNT
        Good afternoon, Mr. Bond, Miss 
        Case. We've been expecting you.

Bond tenses up.

                    BOND
        Fraulein Bunt.

                    BUNT
        Dr. Shatterhand extends his most 
        sincere apologies for not being able 
        to greet you in person.

                    BOND
        It's not the first time.

                    BUNT
        Step down please, we are running 
        behind schedule.

Bond steps off the carriage. He turns to help Tiffany.

                    BOND
        It's alright.

Tiffany takes Bond’s hand and steps down. The pair follow
Bunt on board the steamboat.

EXT. STEAMBOAT DECK - CONTINUOUS

                    BOND
        Rather ostentatious.

                    TIFFANY
        That's SPECTRE.

Bunt stops as do Bond and Tiffany. Another man, in a butler’s
garb, approaches holding a silver tray.

                    BUNT
        Before we leave, just one more 
        thing.

The butler raises the tray. Bond figures out what it means.

                    BOND
        Oh, right.

Bond unholsters his PPK and places it on the tray.

                    BOND
        You be careful with that. It's loaded.

Bunt and the butler leave. Bond and Tiffany take their seats.
The steamboat begins to move.

EXT. BAYOU - LATER

The sun gets low in the sky. The steamboat passes through
the bayou past cypress trees and spanish moss. A giant
plantation comes into view.

The steamboat comes to a stop at dock in front of the
plantation.

EXT. STEAMBOAT - CONTINUOUS

Bond and Tiffany stand up. Irma Bunt reappears.

                    BUNT
        Come.

                    BOND
        Now?

Bunt holds her gaze sternly. She motions for the two to
disembark.

                    BOND
              (to Tiffany)
        After you, my dear.

Bond and Tiffany disembark the steamboat.

EXT. PLANTATION DOCKS - CONTINUOUS

Bond and Tiffany are led by Bunt along the docks through
the swamp. The wood creaks under their feet. Alligators
swim past.

Bond looks ahead. He sees a giant swath of vegetation in
the shadow of the illuminated plantation. Bond recognizes
some of the plants.

                    BOND
        Interesting garden.

                    BUNT
        Some of the rarest and deadliest 
        plants in the world.

                    BOND
        A garden to die for.

Bond raises his eyebrow. They continue towards the
plantation.

INT. PLANTATION HALL - MOMENTS LATER

Bunt leads Bond and Tiffany through the plantation.
The interior is lavishly adorned with taxidermized big
animals and opulent furnishings.

They continue walking up the stairs. Bunt opens a door
and they pass through.

INT. PLANTATION CORRIDOR - CONTINUOUS

The bayou is visible through the windows to Bond’s left.
Bunt stops in front of two doors. She points.

                    BUNT
        Your rooms.

Bond and Tiffany look at each nervously. They each
enter a room.

INT. TIFFANY’S ROOM - CONTINUOUS

The room looks like a standard bedroom. There is a red
dress on the bed. Pictures adorn the nightstand and
mantle. They are of Tiffany’s childhood.

She picks one up and looks at it: her father. She gets
visibly upset and smashes the picture.

INT. BOND’S ROOM - SIMULTANEOUS

Bond’s room is a mirror-image of Tiffany’s. A black suit
is laid out on the bed.

                    BUNT
        We will come to collect you later.

Bunt leaves and the door locks behind her.

Bond examines the pictures: Skyfall Manor, M, a young
Bond and his parents (the picture Bond burned at the end
of “Skyfall”), and lastly Bond and Tracy on their wedding
day.

Bond picks up the photo of him and Tracy. He tenses up.

INT. BOND’S ROOM - AFTERNOON, THE FOLLOWING DAY

Bunt enters Bond’s room, uninvited. Bond is wearing the black
suit.

                    BUNT
        We're going to see the doctor.

Bond follows Bunt out of his room.

INT. PLANTATION CORRIDOR - CONTINUOUS

Tiffany is waiting for them in the corridor. She takes Bond’s
hand.

                    TIFFANY
        I'm scared, James.

                    BOND
        It'll be okay, Tiffany.

Bond and Tiffany follow Bunt down the corridor.

EXT. BALCONY - MOMENTS LATER

Bond and Tiffany emerge onto a balcony over looking the garden
below.

The scene resembles a small jungle with spanish moss.

Bond hears wheels gliding across the restored wood floor.
Shatterhand has arrived.

                    SHATTERHAND
        Do you recognize any of the plants?

Bond recognizes the voice.

                    BOND
        Oleander.

                    SHATTERHAND
        And what do you know of Oleander, 
        Commander?

                    BOND
        A beautiful pink flower from Central 
        Europe and Asia. Pliny the Elder 
        wrote of its striking beauty. Though, 
        it can be deadly if ingested.

                    SHATTERHAND
        Very good. What about that one?

Shatterhand points to plants with large black berries.

                    BOND
        Atropa belladonna, deadly nightshade. 
        Used as poison for centuries. It's 
        effects are (beat) unpredictable.

                    SHATTERHAND
        Top marks, 007.

Bond turns to face the man called Shatterhand. There’s a
nasty scar running down the right side of his face from his
forehead, through his eye, and ending near his mouth.

                    BOND
        Well, well, Ernst Stavro Blofeld. I 
        seem to recall you having a rather 
        nasty fall.

Confirmed, Shatterhand is Blofeld.

                    BLOFELD
        What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger.

                    BOND
        You know, Blofeld, you only live 
        twice. (beat) Once when you are 
        born and once when you're staring 
        death in the face.

                    BLOFELD
        I guess we've both lived two lives.

                    BOND
        One life too many.

                    BLOFELD
        Maybe so. (beat) Now, if you don't 
        mind, dinner is to be served. (to Tiffany) 
        Of course, you are more than welcome 
        to join us Miss Case. Everyone 
        deserves a final meal.

Tiffany nervously glances at Bond.

                    BOND
        It's alright.

Blofeld pushes himself out of his wheelchair and stands. A
distinctive metallic sound is heard and Blofeld straightens
his paralyzed legs.

                    BOND
        Well that's a neat trick.

                    BLOFELD
        The Nazis made some truly 
        remarkable achievements in the field 
        of robotics.

INT. DINING ROOM - MOMENTS LATER

The three join Irma Bunt at the table, Blofeld and Bond at
opposite ends with Tiffany in the middle opposite Bunt.

Serving staff enter carrying silver trays, placing one in front
of each diner. The lids are removed, each has a pile of
crawfish.

                    BLOFELD
        Boiled crawfish, a delicacy here in 
        New Orleans.

Tiffany refuses to touch her food, nor does Bond. Blofeld
breaks off the tail of a crawfish and sucks out the juice.

                    BLOFELD
        Not hungry?

                    BOND
        I ate on the train.

                    TIFFANY
        I don't eat anything with a face.

Blofeld continues eating.

                    BLOFELD
        You're disrupting the natural order 
        of life, breaking a link in the food 
        chain.

                    BOND
        I'm sure life will go on.

                    BLOFELD
        You're right, life adapts. But isn't it 
        strange how we are all put on God's 
        earth and yet there are some of us 
        here who are just better?

                    BOND
        Better?

                    BLOFELD
        Desirable and undesirable.

Bond understands his meaning.

                    BOND
        Ubermensch and untermensch.

                    BLOFELD
        Exactly.

                    BOND
        You can take the man out of Nazi 
        Germany, but you can't take Nazi 
        Germany out of the man.

Blofeld nods.

                    BLOFELD
        So this is your end game.

                    BLOFELD
        This was always the end game.

                    BOND
        Allow society to rip itself apart. (beat) 
        And after the dust settles....

                    BLOFELD
        SPECTRE will put the world back 
        together, (beat) the Fourth Reich.

                    BOND
        But how? (beat) The diamonds?

                    BLOFELD
        Go on.

                    BOND
        The virus, you're creating a pandemic.

                    BLOFELD
        Indeed, Mr. Bond. The virus was 
        synthesized from the plants you see 
        before you. The diamonds will be 
        sent to every major city in the world, 
        starting with New York.

                    BOND
        And when people go to pick up their 
        jewelry?

                    BLOFELD
        They will die rich.

Blofeld raises his glass, as if to toast.

                    TIFFANY
        You're a monster.

                    BLOFELD
        No Miss Case, you are the monsters. 
        (to Bond) You remember Dresden?

                    BOND
        Carpet bombing leveled the city at the 
        end of the war, nearly 45,000 casualties.

                    BLOFELD
        All for nothing. The war was already won.

                    BOND
        Not our finest hour. But you know it'll 
        never work. Chaos just breeds more 
        chaos. They'll never accept you.

Blofeld motions to the guards in the room.

                    BLOFELD
        Oh but they will Mr. Bond. Just as 
        you will.

Bond’s confused. The guard hits him in the back of the head
and the scene goes black.

INT. TORTURE ROOM - MOMENTS LATER

The room is brightly lit. Blofeld sits in front of a large computer
console. Tiffany sits next to him. Bunt holds a gun to her head.
Bond is strapped to a chair.

A guard splashes water on Bond’s face. He snaps to attention.
He searches the room taking in his surroundings.

                    BLOFELD
              (to Tiffany)
        There's a certain symmetry in the 
        world. Everything exists in balance. 
        Law and order, light and dark, day 
        and night, summer and winter, (beat) 
        life and death.

Blofeld smiles seeing Bond wake up. He is stroking a white cat.

                    BLOFELD
        James and I have been adversaries 
        for a long time, my dear. He fought 
        for the law. I fought for the order.

                    BOND
        Through chaos.

                    BLOFELD
        Exactly right. Order is achieved 
        through chaos. Miss Case, you are 
        aware that James and I were both 
        present at a gathering, recently, in 
        which a man was strangled to death. 
        One minute he was alive, the next, 
        he was dead.

                    TIFFANY
        Balance....

Tiffany’s voice is raw with emotion.

                    BLOFELD
        However, for a fleeting moment, he 
        was neither alive nor dead. His soul 
        was seeping from his body as he 
        was deprived of air. (beat) And just 
        before he died, you could see, his 
        body was nothing more than a hollow 
        shell, the life draining out. He was an 
        empty void. The balance was missing. 
        It was most odd.

Bond gets agitated.

                    BOND
        Get on with it already, Blofeld. Nothing can 
        be more torturous than listening to you talk.

                    BLOFELD
        As you wish.

Blofeld turns to his console and flips a switch. BUZZ! A tiny drill
activates. He lets the cat go.

The drill approaches Bond’s head. It penetrates his skull and he
screams. A few seconds pass. Blofeld stops the drill.

                    BLOFELD
        How did that feel? Painful?

Blofeld smiles. Bond starts trying to undo his watch behind his
back, out of view of Blofeld.

                    BLOFELD
        That is only the start.

Bond gets the watch undone. He slides it off his wrist.

                    BLOFELD
        First, you will lose your sense of balance. 
        Then your memories will start to fade. 
        When I'm through, you will be a blank slate, 
        neither alive nor dead.

                    BOND
        At least I won't have to remember 
        you, Blofeld.

                    BLOFELD
        My dear James, soon you will address 
        me by another title, as will the whole 
        world (beat) Mein Fuhrer, Franz 
        Oberhauser.

Blofeld starts the drill again. Bond screams. He nearly drops the
watch. Blofeld stops and removes the drill. Bond grips his watch
tightly.

Tears streak down Tiffany’s face.

                    TIFFANY
        Stop this.

                    BLOFELD
        You love him, don't you? Go to him, 
        my dear. Kiss him goodbye.

Blofeld nods to Bunt, who lowers her gun.

Tiffany hurries over to Bond.

                    BLOFELD
        Do those blue eyes still recognize 
        you?

Tiffany wraps herself around Bond. His eyes are closed.

                    TIFFANY
              (whispering)
        James! Can you hear me? (beat) I 
        love you.

Bond’s eyes open.

                    BOND
              (whispering)
        I could never forget you.

Tiffany kisses him.

                    BOND
              (whispering)
        The watch, in my hand.

Bond turns a dial and the face turns red.

                    BOND
              (whispering)
        30 seconds.

Tiffany nods for understanding. She kisses him again, disguising
her taking the watch.

                    BLOFELD
        Time's up, Tiffany.

Blofeld starts the drill again.

                    BOND
        For you, Blofeld.

Tiffany throws the watch toward Blofeld and Bunt. Blofeld looks at it.
He tries to dive out of the way.

BOOM! The watch explodes, destroying Blofeld’s console. He is flung
against the far wall. Bunt is knocked to the ground.

Bond’s restraints unlock and he falls to the floor. Tiffany helps him up.

                    TIFFANY
        Are you alright?

Bond shakes his head.

                    BOND
        Never better, come on.

Bond picks up an STG44 from a downed guard.

Bunt stands and helps Blofeld up. Bond fires at them, but misses.
They escape out of the other side of the room.

Bond and Tiffany start to move, but Bond stumbles. His balance is
off.

                    TIFFANY
        Here.

Tiffany allows Bond to lean on her. The doors in front of them open,
two guards are visible. Bond fires and kills them both.

The pair move out of the room.

EXT. PLANTATION ENTRANCE - SIMULATENOUS

A group of marines, in camouflage and face paint, encircle the
entrance to the plantation. A marine plants a charge on the front
door.

EXT. CORRIDOR - SIMULATANEOUS

Bond and Tiffany arrive into the hall. They make their way to the
end.

BOOM! A large explosion rocks the compound. Gunfire is heard
in the background.

EXT. PLANTATION ENTRANCE - SIMULATANEOUS

The door explodes inward. Felix is seen leading the marines. He
wears camouflage and wields an M16.

                    FELIX
              (shouting)
        All targets are hostile. 007 and the 
        girl are not to be harmed.

The marines enter the plantation.

INT. PLANTATION HALL - CONTINUOUS

Bond and Tiffany arrive in the main hall. The hall is on fire. The
marines and Blofeld’s men exchange fire.

Bond attempts to fire, but his shots are erratic. They hide behind
a column.

                    FELIX
        James!

Bond searches for the voice.

                    BOND
        Felix!

Felix runs over and kneels down.

                    FELIX
        You don't look so good. Must've 
        been a great party.

                    BOND
        I've had better. How'd you find 
        me?

                    FELIX
        Q. He pinged your tracker. We 
        have to get you out of here.

                    BOND
        No, you have to get the diamonds. 
        They are to be sent to New York.

                    FELIX
        What's the catch?

                    BOND
        They are coated in a virus that will 
        kill millions.

                    FELIX
        What about you?

                    BOND
        I'm going after Blofeld. This ends 
        once and for all.

Felix hands a pistol to Tiffany.

                    FELIX
              (to Tiffany)
        Keep him safe. God speed, James.

Felix takes off with a group of marines.

                    BOND
              (to Tiffany)
        Come on.

Bond and Tiffany head towards the back of the hall.

INT. PLANTATION BASEMENT - MOMENTS LATER

The room is dark and dank. Water leaks on the floor.

Bullets fly toward Bond and Tiffany, they take cover behind a column.
Wooden shrapnel flies all around. Tiffany is hit and slightly bloodied.

                    BOND
        Are you alright?

                    TIFFANY
        Yes, I'm okay.

Bond turns and fires back. He hits one guard. A window shatters
allowing more water in. The second guard is knocked over. Tiffany
shoots him.

                    BOND
        Let's go.

They make their way to the other side of the basement. There are
stairs leading outside.

                    BOND
        Follow me.

Bond begins to move. He hears a voice and stops.

                    BUNT
        Don't move.

Bond turns around. Bunt holds her gun to Tiffany’s head.

                    BUNT
        Drop your gun.

Bond does as he’s told. Blofeld, bloodied, emerges behind him and
knocks him to his knees.

                    BLOFELD
              (to Bunt)
        Take her to the boat.

Bunt leaves with Tiffany. Blofeld kneels down and grabs Bond’s face.
He holds it up to his. Bond notices some machetes on a shelf, next to
him.

                    BLOFELD
        I should have killed you long ago.

                    BOND
        Your mistake.

                    BLOFELD
        Not one that I will make again.

Blofeld releases Bond’s head and stands up. He points his gun at Bond.
Bond feels behind him and grips the handle of the machete.

                    BLOFELD
        Goodbye, Mr. Bond.

Blofeld starts to pull the trigger, but Bond swings the machete. He hits the
gun, causing Blofeld to drop it.

Bond kicks Blofeld hard, who stumbles back. Bond gets to his feet, but
Blofeld recovers.

They struggle to gain control. Blofeld punches Bond, he stumbles against
the wall. Blofeld grabs the other machete and escapes up the stairs.
Bond gives chase.

EXT. PLANTATION GARDENS - CONTINUOUS

Bond finds himself in the plantation gardens. Deadly plants surround him.
Blofeld is nowhere to be seen.

SNAP! Bond searches for the source of the sound. He sees an alligator
creeping towards him. He takes off running.

Bond hears rustling near him. He stops and searches.

He hears crunching behind him and spins around. Blofeld swings at him
with his machete. Bond parries at the last second.

Bond and Blofeld fight with the machetes. Bond swings, but Blofeld
blocks.

Blofeld kicks Bond hard, who falls to the ground. Blofeld swings, but
Bond rolls out of the way and pushes himself to his feet.

ROAR! Bond sees a Jaguar ready to pounce. Blofeld turns and runs.
Bond readies himself. The jaguar lunges at him, but Bond dives out
of the way. He hurries into the jungle to put distance between himself
and the jaguar.

Bond runs, using the machete to chop plants. He dives behind a tree
and waits.

INT. LAB - SIMULTANEOUS

A once pristine lab is shot to pieces. Glass is shattered, scientists lie
dead.

BANG! A last guard is shot dead. The marines enter the lab with Felix.

Felix sees shipping crates with various city names: NEW YORK,
LOS ANGELES, LONDON, PARIS, MOSCOW.

                    FELIX
        Hand me that crowbar.

A marine hands Felix a crowbar sitting on the crates. Felix wedges it
in and pries the lid off.

Diamond encrusted jewelry sits inside sealed, glass cases.

                    FELIX
        We've got the diamonds. Use the 
        charges, destroy it all.

                    MARINE
        Yes sir.

                    FELIX
        Set timers, two minutes.

Felix primes his own charge and places it in the open crate.

                    FELIX
        Let's go, double time.

Felix and the marines hurry out of the lab.

EXT. PLANTATION GARDENS - SIMULTANEOUS

Bond pants behind the tree. He slowly gets up to move. A
blade appears at his throat.

                    BLOFELD
        Drop it, slowly.

Bond drops the machete. Blofeld kicks Bond hard, who falls to the
ground.

Blofeld stamps Bond hard in the chest, pushing down with his
robotic leg. Bond lets out a muffled scream.

                    BLOFELD
        What's that? I couldn't hear you, 
        Mr. Bond.

Bond tries to move Blofeld’s foot, to no avail. He sees black berries
near his head, the deadly nightshade.

INT. LAB - SIMULTANEOUS

Close up shot of the charges, a digital countdown. 3…2…1…BOOM!


#6

EXT. PLANTATION GARDENS - CONTINUOUS

The charges explode and the entire plantion is engulfed in flames.
The distraction allows Bond to grab a rock and hit Blofeld.

Blofeld stumbles back. Bond grabs a handful of berries. Blofeld
advances toward Bond again. Bond picks up the machete. Blofeld
swings, Bond blocks and shoves the berries into Blofeld’s mouth.

Blofeld stumbles back. He starts to wobble. He falls to his knees
and coughs.

                    BLOFELD
        What? What did you do?

Bond kicks Blofeld onto his back and wraps his hands around
Blofeld’s neck. He squeezes. Blofeld chokes.

                    BLOFELD
        No!

                    BOND
        Die Blofeld!

Blofled struggles, but succumbs to the poison. Bond lets him go.
He falls back to his knees. His nemesis is finally dead.

Felix arrives with a few marines.

                    FELIX
        James.

Bond looks to him.

                    FELIX
        Blofeld?

Bond points to Blofeld’s body.

                    BOND
        With the rest of the Nazis. The 
        diamonds?

                    FELIX
        Destroyed. Where's Tiffany?

A distant scream is heard. Bond and Felix look up. They see two
figures enter a speedboat on the river, Bunt and Tiffany.

                    BOND
        We have to get her, come on.

Felix helps Bond to his feet.

                    FELIX
              (to Marine)
        Sergeant Harris, get your men out 
        of here.

                    HARRIS
        What about you two?

                    FELIX
        We have a boat to catch. Give him 
        a gun.

Harris gives Bond a Beretta. Bond cocks it. He and Felix take off
towards the dock.

Bond and Felix arrive at the dock and jump in the remaining
speedboat. Bond starts it and drives off.

EXT. RIVER - CONTINUOUS

Bond and Felix pursue Bunt and Tiffany down the river.

                    BOND
        Take the wheel and step on it.

Felix switches places with Bond. Bond takes the M16 and aims it at
the other boat.

In Tiffany’s boat, Tiffany sits with her hands tied up. Bunt meanders
through the thick, overhanging vegetation.

Bunt hears the other boat. She turns to see Bond gaining. Tiffany
turns to Bond as well.

                    TIFFANY
        James!

Bond fires at Bunt. Bunt swerves and the bullets hit random spots on
the boat. The windshield shatters and wood splinters.

                    BOND
        Damn.

                    FELIX
        What is it?

                    BOND
        It's too dangerous, I could hit Tiffany.

Bond drops the gun and climbs over the windshield onto the front of the
boat.

                    FELIX
        James, what are you doing?

                    BOND
        Get along side them.

Felix speeds up. Their boat closes in on the other one. Bunt looks back,
she tries swerving again, but only succeeds in allowing Bond to gain
ground.

Bond’s boat pulls up next to Bunt’s. Bunt rams Bond’s boat. Bond falls
and grabs a hold of the railing, barely avoiding falling in the water.

                    FELIX
        James, hang on.

Bunt starts to turn the boat towards Bond’s again. Tiffany manages to
pull herself to her feet. She charges at Bunt.

Bunt punches her and she falls to the deck, but the distraction is
enough to stop Bunt from hitting Bond.

Bond pulls himself to his feet. He readies himself to jump again.

The headlights of the boats illuminate the view ahead. There’s an island
forking the river in two.

Bunt smiles she turns the boat to hit Bond again.

                    FELIX
        Jump James!

Bond jumps and lands in Bunt’s boat. Felix turns down the other river
at the fork.

Bunt tries to correct herself, but hits the rocks causing everyone to fall.

Bond gets up. He rushes to Tiffany and unties her hands. She kisses
him.

                    TIFFANY
        Oh James.

                    BOND
        Wait here.

Bond gets up and sees Bunt trying to pick herself up.

Bond grabs the steering wheel and straightens out the boat.

Bunt attacks Bond who is knocked to the side and falls into the
navigator’s seat. Bunt withdraws her gun and points it at Bond.

                    BUNT
        This is for Franz.

Bond kicks the steering wheel, jerking the boat around. Bunt falls
backward, hitting the railing, and drops the gun overboard. Her
neck breaks on the railing and she falls onto the steering wheel.
The boat speeds up.

                    BOND
        At that's for Tracy.

Bond looks to Tiffany, who gives an exhausted smile. But her look
soon turns to horror.

                    TIFFANY
        James, look out!

The boat is speeding straight for an oil platform. Bond tries to move
Bunt, but is unable.

                    BOND
        It's stuck. Come on!

Bond grabs Tiffany and they jump overboard. They pop up to see
the boat heading for the platform.

                    BOND
        Swim, fast!

The two frantically swim for the shore in front of them.

                    BOND
        Dive!

Bond and Tiffany dive underwater as the boat collides with the oil
platform and explodes in a giant fireball that lights up the entire river.

Bond and Tiffany climb onto shore. They collapse next to each and
pass out from exhaustion, as a speedboat begins to come into view.

EXT. HEATHROW - LONDON - DAY

M, stands with Marc-Ange Draco, as a plane door opens. Bond,
smartly dressed, disembarks from the plane. Tiffany follows
wearing a dress.

Bond walks over to Draco.

                    BOND
        It's done.

                    DRACO
        Thank you, James. Maybe now 
        Teresa can rest in peace. How 
        are you?

                    BOND
        She already was. The dead don't 
        care about vengeance.

Bond and Draco shake hands, amicably. Bond approaches M,
withdrawing his PPK. He hands it to M.

                    BOND
        Effective immediately, I tender my 
        resignation from Her Majesty's Secret 
        Service.

                    M
        Accepted.

Bond shakes M’s hand.

                    BOND
        Thank you, Colonel.

                    M
        It was my pleasure, Commander.

Bond takes Tiffany’s hand and they walk off toward the terminal.

INT. Q’S LAB - LONDON - DAY

The lab is mostly empty. Q sits at his desk, turning a screw into
one of his briefcase gadgets.

CREAK! Q hears a door open and close. He looks up to see
Bond entering.

                    Q
        007? What are you doing here? I 
        thought you'd gone.

                    BOND
        Just have to pick up one last thing.

Bond walks over to Q’s desk. He picks up a set of keys lying
amidst Q’s various gadgets.

                    BOND
        Goodbye Q.

Bond smiles at Q and turns to leave.

INT. BOND’S CAR - MOMENTS LATER

The Bond theme starts to build as early morning light streams
into the car. Bond inserts his key and turns the ignition. VROOM!
The car starts and Bond revs the engine.

Bond looks to his left and sees Tiffany sitting next to him. He
kisses her.

                    BOND
        Where should we go, darling?

                    TIFFANY
        Far, far away.

                    BOND
        Whatever you say.

Bond puts the car in gear and tears down the road.
