Thanksgiving James Bond

As I prep for the upcoming culinary storm, I find that James Bond is playing on TV. This really brings me back. The movie is Octopussy with Roger Moore, a flick I grew up with. I glanced over while making breakfast and saw the scene in the casino where James borrows the lucky dice from Kamal Khan.

Here’s a link to the scene.

I love that James rolls the dice and doesn’t even glance down. He knows that it’s double sixes. What’s more, backgammon is my favorite board games, so I get double enjoyment from this scene.

The icing on the cake is the final line, as Kamal writes a check for 200,000 rupees. James has the audacity to say, “I prefer cash.”

Yes. That’s the James Bond I recall.

  1. You sound like Hubby. He and I grew up with the old traditional Bonds – Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan. We’re not all that impressed with the new guy. Hubby thinks of him more as an iron worker than a ‘Bond’. Not that he wouldn’t make a good spy, just not the suave, debonaire character we have grown to love. 🙂

  2. Love Bond, backgammon and YOU! 😀
