    A few comments on the quiz.
    1) For a change, i found Tom’s questions a lot harder than Chris’
    2) Isn’t Never Say Never Again’s Domino another Bond girl who avenges a sibling?
    3) Another possible error in the quiz:_ “i’m over here” is actually from Moneypenny to Roger in Octopussy (not in FYEO) as a reply to the “you look more beautiful everyday” comment that Bond directs to Miss Smallbone when entering the MI6 office.
    4) My favorite part of the quiz (by a longshot) was when Chris’ tries not to wake his Mom with all the yelling (priceless!!!!)

    MY FINAL SCORE WAS 66. The funny thing is that my scores have been almost identical for the 3 quizes of yours that I’ve taken. I know very little about the Bond books and that section always kills me.

    48.5 I need practice, but I like Quarrel anyway. Actually 49.5 after I corrected my results because of that error GerardoV pointed out about “I’m over here” being in Octopussy- which I thought it was. I had a lot of fun with this quiz. Merry Boxing Day.

    • GerardoValero

      Curiously enough, on last year’s quiz I believe that they also got mixed the Moneypenny scenes from FYEO and Octopussy.

  • stbell75

    Scraped a Felix. Just. You guys are inhuman. You both so need to go on Mastermind this year. Even if your GK is crap you’ll walk it on Bond alone… 🙂 Happy New Year!

  • Langford

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, boys! Great quiz – amazing effort by both of you- every time I think the podcast should be about done I look down to my iPhone and there’s an hour left!

    As for scores, I’m crap on the older stuff – if there’s a Pussfellow level, I’m that!

    Welcome back from a well deserved holiday!

  • Kyle Mayberry

    I scored a whole 63 points, 1/2 point up from last year. That’s 2 years in a row as Felix. I guess it’s fitting since I’m American.

    Another fantastic quiz guys, hopefully next year we’ll have some Bond 25 news and I can improve my score another 1/2 point.

  • Stephen Wadsworth

    Great stuff, guys. Happy new year to everyone under the JBR umbrella.

    61.5 for me on the latest quiz, which seems to be about my level on all the quizzes so far. Can’t be disappointed with Felix. Glad others have already pointed out the few slightly incorrect ‘correct’ answers so I can save my own pedantry for another day!

    Looking forward to the reviews of the ’80s Roger movies (the age of the aged secret agent) and plenty more in 2016.

  • Colin Peters

    49… I must say I am a little disappointed in myself but at the same time that means there is plenty of room for improvement and expanding my Bond knowledge!

    Hope you guys enjoyed your well deserved break and I can’t wait for a great 2016 of JBR!

  • olufsphere

    Wow … that was pathetic!

    I got Nigel Small-Fawcett, and not a very convincing one at that. More like Rowan Atkinson in a orange bikini. It was ugly!
