Everyone Needs a HobbyJames 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.

Somewhere in the South China SeaGareth 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.

Take The ShotEve 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.

He Knows UsM: "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.

Lost The DriveGareth 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.
