Topic: Brainstorm! Which subtle Bond mannerisms can we use in daily life?

What are some daily situations - at the office, at the market, during family gatherings, on a plane, while driving, with a lover - that could be improved with subtle Bond mannerisms or quotes? Hypothetical and real situations are all welcome!

I'll start us off: After Vesper storms off from the hotel desk, Bond responds to "Enjoy your stay" with a smirk and an "I will" - a small addition, but definitely conveys confidence and a lovely touch of disdain.

Well, you'll look cool when you squint your eyes a little bit while lighting a cigarette.
Also, an occasional slap on the rump of the fairer sex makes you appear manly.

You need to get hold of this book - by far the funniest and most practical way of getting some (literary) Bond into your day:

The Book of Bond - or every man his own 007

It has chapters on drink, food, smokes, looks, exercise, clothes, accessories, cars and many others, including how to chat like Bond.

Here are a couple of pages, on looks:

When I am speaking to Asp9mm and call him out for his stupidity - he often is pulling a Dalton - just like a little rabbit

My input to this post would be something along the lines of this. Going about my day to day life I will try and say Good Morning to as many people as possible or even a good day, it's difficult sometimes because they look at you as if you have just freaked them out. I also like to stand with my two hands in front of eachother with one hand over the other when I am talking to someone out of respect and sometimes I might do a curtious bow too. I also like to refer to a Male or Female as Sir or Madam if I do not know them that well. I also like to open doors for people and allow ladies to go in front of me if I can. I also offer to help carry thier shopping up step hills or hep them down the hill if they are in difficuly.

Regards James.
