No 'end credits' answers. And proper answers too…

1. Tosca
We all know why.

2. Bond contemplating murder-suicide.
Harkens back to the end of Fleming's MR. Very intense scene and a refreshing change of pace for a Bond film.

3. What's Keeping You Awake?
Nice little scene with Mathis on the plane. Craig and Giananni do a great job here. More poignant than his death scene, actually.

Honourable mention: Camille confronts Dominic Greene at the docks. Really dig this scene. The cinematography is gorgeous, but what's happening is bizarre. And I like the exchange between Greene and Camille… Feels very Bondian.

1. Tosca
Right from the moment Bond interrupts Quantum's meeting to Greene having the Special Branch man killed it's for the most part well-shot and exciting.

2. Bond leaves Greene in the desert
A dark and satisfying way to finish off the character.  Bond leaving a can of oil as a reminder of what Greene had done to Fields was a great touch.

3. "James, move your ass!"
I loved seeing Felix Leiter back in this film and especially because of Jeffrey Wright's performance here which has a laid-back, professional sense to it. You can tell this Felix has been in the game for a while and a bit worn-down by his superior's dirty business.

Ugh, this'll be hard chaps.

1. PTS
For one the DBS. Any excuse to see an Aston in action. Editing aside, the zoom in at the very beginning inter-cutting with the DBS is not too bad.

2. Mathis and Bond
At Mathis' home. Bond seems ashamed a little at what happened before whereas Mathis seems to shrug it off a little. What's done is done. You're a bastard but life continues.

3. Desert
Dispatching Greene.

1. Bond getting cocked on the plane

Pretty much sums up what the viewer would like to do while watching this film.

A bit of role-reversal with Helga?

It's what I would do before and after.

I'll go with these also, swap out Desert with Tosca maybe.
