"Skyfall" movie quotes follow the action in the 23rd installment in the James Bond spy film series. The action film, which released on October 26, 2012, in the United Kingdom and November 9, 2012, in the United States, was written by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and directed by Dam Mendes.

In "Skyfall," Agent 007 James Bond (Daniel Craig, in this third role as Bond) is called in after a hard drive containing information on undercover agents working within terror organizations is stolen. Bond is able to locate the thief but in the pursuit is shot by fellow MI6 agent Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris), goes missing and is presumed dead. In the wake of the incident, MI6 leader M (Judi Dench) is forced to step down but the fight to contain that top-secret agent data continues.

James Bond continues his mission which leads him to a casino where he meets beauty Sévérine (Bérénice Marlohe) and is warned that her employer, former MI6 agent turned rogue Raiul Silva (Javier Bardem), is trying to kill him. The battle between Bond and Silva continues and takes both of them to a tiny little town in Scotland in which Bond was raised, Skyfall, but only one can win that epic fight.

The highly anticipated "Skyfall" joins a fall 2012 movie season jam-packed with blockbusters including other great movies like "Flight," "This Must Be the Place," "Cloud Atlas," "Wreck-It Ralph," "Nobody Walks," "The Sessions," "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D," "Chasing Mavericks," "Alex Cross," "Smashed," "Sinister," "Seven Psychopaths," "Argo," "Here Comes the Boom," "The Paperboy," "Taken 2," "Frankenweenie," "Butter," "Won't Back Down," and "Looper."

Everyone Needs a Hobby

James Bond: "Everybody needs a hobby."

Silva: "So what's yours?"

James Bond: "Resurrection"

Possibly having more lives than your average nine-life cat, James Bond returns from being presumed dead when the duty calls. For him, resurrection is not a miracle, but rather a hobby.

He Knows Us

M: "We're under attack. Whoever did this, he knows us. He's one of us."

M recognizes that this attack is perhaps too good, that the perpetrator must be someone with intimate knowledge of their program, someone from the inside or perhaps someone formerly a member.

Take The Shot

Eve Moneypenny: "I may have a shot. It's not clean, repeat, I do not have a clean shot. There's a tunnel ahead. I'm going to lose them."

M: "Can you get into a better position?"

Eve Moneypenny: "Negative, there's no time."

M: "Take the shot. I said take the shot."

Eve Moneypenny: "I can't, I may hit Bond."

M: "Take the bloody shot."

With only a few seconds before her window to shoot expires, Eve Moneypenny has her fears that she might accidentally hit James Bond rather than French mercenary Patrice as they wrestle atop a moving train. Her instincts are right and Moneypenny does in fact shoot James Bond, forcing him to fall deep into the water below.

Somewhere in the South China Sea

Gareth Mallory: "Do you have any word on Bond?"

M: "He's somewhere in the South China Sea."

Gareth Mallory: "That's it?"

M: "Well when you've worked with Bond as long as I have you realize that somewhere in the South China Sea is precise intelligence."

To most, a location of "somewhere in the South China Sea" would be pretty broad but for M, who is used to dealing with James Bond, that's considered precise intelligence.

Lost The Drive

Gareth Mallory: "Three months ago you lost the drive containing the identity of every agent embedded in terrorist organizations across the globe."

Of all of the pieces of data that shouldn't be lost, one containing information on undercover agents working for terrorists is up there on the list of things that should not be lost. M knows this and pays the price for the fault.

Your New Quartermaster

Q: "It always makes me feel a little melancholy, a grand old war ship being ignominiously hauled away for scrap. The inevitability of time, don't you think? What do you see?"

James Bond: "A bloody big ship, excuse me"

Q: "007, I'm your new quartermaster."

James Bond: "You must be joking."

Q: "Why, because I'm not wearing a lab coat?"

James Bond: "Because you still have spots."

Q: "My complexion is hardly relevant."

James Bond: "Your competence is."

Q: "Age is no guarantee of efficiency."

James Bond: "And youth is no guarantee of innovation."

Q: "I'll hazard I can do more damage on my laptop sitting in my pajamas before my first cup of earl grey before you can do in a year in the field."

James Bond: "Oh, so why do you need me?"

Q: "Every now and then a trigger has to be pulled."

James Bond: "Or not pulled, it's hard to know which in your pajamas, Q."

Q: "007"

At first, the introduction of James Bond to Q, the new quartermaster, comes with a bit of static, mainly as Bond sees Q as too young and inexperienced for that position but soon they come to an understanding.

Kill Them First

James Bond: "Some men are coming to kill us. We're going to kill them first."

In true James Bond style, he's there to take care of those men coming to kill him before they get to him. The villains and stories always change but this is one constant in Bond films.
