This damn Beretta again.”
  
DIRECTOR:
Terence Young

SCREENPLAY:
Richard Maibaum, Berkley Mather, and Johanna Harwood.
 
CLASSIC SCENE:
In the early hours of the morning secret agent James Bond 007 is summoned from a London casino to appear before his boss ‘M’ (Bernard Lee), head of British Intelligence. After customary by-play with M’s secretary Miss Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell), 007 is briefed on his next assignment by M, who then calls for the armourer, Major Boothroyd (Peter Burton)…

M: Armourer! (to Bond) Take off your jacket! Give me your gun. Yes, I thought so. This damn Beretta again. I’ve told you about this before. (to Boothroyd) You tell him — for the last time! 

MAJOR BOOTHROYD: Nice and light — in a lady’s handbag. No stopping power. 

M: Any comments Double-O Seven? 

JAMES BOND: I disagree sir. I’ve used a Beretta for ten years — I’ve never missed with it yet! 

M: Maybe not, but it jammed on your last job and you spent six months in hospital in consequence. If you carry a Double-O number it means you’re licenced to kill not get killed. And another thing. Since I’ve been head of MI7 there’s been a 40 percent drop in Double-O operative casualties, and I want it to stay that way. You’ll carry the Walther — unless of course you’d prefer to go back to standard intelligence duties. 

JAMES BOND: No sir. I would not. 

M: Then from now on you carry a different gun, show him armourer.

MAJOR BOOTHROYD: Walther PPK 7.65 mil with a delivery like a brick through a plate-glass window. Takes a Brausch silencer with very little reduction in muzzle velocity — the American CIA swear by them. 

M: Thank you Major Boothroyd. 

MAJOR BOOTHROYD: Thank you sir. (to Bond) Goodnight sir. 

M: Any questions Double-O Seven? 

JAMES BOND: No sir. 

M: Alright then. Best of luck. 

JAMES BOND: Thank you sir. (Bond picks up the Walther in its box, hiding the Beretta underneath, and walks to the office door) 

M: (without looking up from his desk) Double-O Seven! 

JAMES BOND: Sir? 

M: Just Leave the Beretta.
