    Bond and Peter Franks are fighting in the townhouse elevator.

    Franks has a pistol, and Bond is trying to wrest the pistol away from Franks. Bond karate chops Franks’s hand several times, and Franks fires the gun at the floor. He finally drops the gun.

    Bond continues to struggle with Franks. Franks gets the upper hand and leans Bond out the side of the elevator, face up. Bond sees that he’s headed for a certain decapitation by way of a cement crossbeam in the elevator shaft.

    Bond looks over at the red STOP button on the control panel.  He winces, and then hits the STOP button with his shoe, canceling the decapitation. Surprised, Franks hesitates for a moment, giving Bond time to kick Franks and escape his grasp.

    Bond starts delivering several body blows to Franks, in the process knocking into the control panel and restarting the elevator. Bond punches Franks to the floor, giving Franks the sudden opportunity to pick up a piece of sharp, jagged window glass from the broken elevator panes.

    Tiffany steps out of her apartment to see the commotion in the elevator. She looks concerned as the elevator continues past the third floor.

    Bond struggles with the glass-wielding Franks.  He grabs Franks’s arm that has the dagger-like piece and shoves the arm out of the elevator gate.  Bond rams the gate shut, knocking the glass shard out of Franks’s grip. He pounds twice on Franks’s forearm at the elbow.

    Bond follows Peter Franks into the townhouse.

    “You are English?” asks Bond, with a Dutch accent.

    “Yes, I’m English,” replies Franks.

    “I speak English!” says Bond, enthusiastically.  Bond closes the gate of the tiny elevator, and shuts the wooden swinging door.  “Who is your floor?” Bond asks Franks.

    “Three, please,” replies Franks. Bond presses the elevator button for three, then prepares to attack Franks from behind. Franks glances behind him at Bond, and Bond smiles and looks at his watch. As Franks turns back again to face forward, Bond prepares to give Franks a blow to the head, but unfortunately breaks an elevator window with his elbow in the confined space. This alerts Franks to the oncoming attack, allowing Franks to block the first blow.  Bond manages to land a right hook to Franks’s face, but can’t back up enough to block Franks’s counterpunches. Franks grabs Bond from behind, breaking more glass. Bond breaks out of Franks’s grip, and manages to land another blow to the face. Franks shoves Bond to the back of the elevator, breaking the back glass. Bond pushes Franks toward the floor of the elevator, and applies a karate chop to Franks’s back. Bond then shoves Franks into the right wall of the elevator, breaking another pane of glass.

    Bond steadies Franks, and then hammers Franks in the face with another blow. Franks leans back, and grabs Bond by the lapels.  He then crosses his wrists across Bond’s neck, attempting to choke Bond. Bond responds by giving Franks two simultaneous chops to the kidneys. He shoves Franks against the STOP button, pausing the elevator ride.

    Franks pulls out a pistol and attempts to shoot Bond.  Bond grabs his arm, bumping into the STOP button and restarting the elevator. Bond struggles to wrest the gun out of Franks’s hand.  Franks falls against the control panel, again stopping the ascent.

    Tiffany Case is advising James Bond as “Peter Franks.”

    “Come up with something original,” she says.

    Later, Bond is peeling a translucent film off his thumb with tweezers, while on the phone to Q.

    “I’ve got to hand it to you, Q,” says Bond, “quite ingenious.”

    “Oh, an obvious little notion,” says Q from his workshop. In the background, technicians are loading what appear to be missiles into the engine compartment of the famous Aston-Martin. “Thought it might come in handy,” Q continues. “Oh, by the way – – M’s been trying to get in touch with you. That Peter Franks fellow’s escaped. Killed one of the guards on the way up to London.” Bond looks alarmed.

    “Hello?” says Q.

    Bond has disappeared from his hotel room.

    “Hello?” repeats Q. “Are you there?” He hangs up in disgust.

    Back at Tiffany’s townhouse, the escaped, real Peter Franks exits a taxi. He pays the driver and makes his way up the stairs to the entrance.  Against a nearby wall is a couple kissing in the shadows. The “couple” turns out to be Bond by himself, using his arms to pretend he’s embracing someone.

    “Yes?” says Tiffany over the intercom.

    “Peter Franks,” says the real Peter Franks.

    “Third floor,” says Tiffany.

    Bond quickly races up the steps.  “Goeden Haben,” says Bond to Franks, pulling out a key.  The door buzzes.

    “Good evening,” replies Franks, as Bond opens the door.

    “Bitte?” says Bond.

    Minute 021: An Awful Lot of Ice

    Minute 021: An Awful Lot of Ice

    Tiffany is satisfied Bond’s fingerprints are a match for Peter Franks.

    Bond drinks his Scotch in the living room, then sniffs the fingerprint powder on the glass, and smiles.

    Tffany returns to the living room, this time a redhead, in a deeply plunging v-neck dress.

    “Ah, I don’t care much for redheads,” says Bond. “Terrible tempers. But somehow, it seems to suit you.”

    Tiffany shrugs. “It’s my own,” she says.

    “Ah,” repeats Bond. “But it is in need of some soft lighting, and I know a restaurant real close…”

    “I never mix business with pleasure,” replies Tiffany, uncorking a bottle of sweet vermouth.

    “Well, neither do I,” says Bond.

    “Good,” says Tiffany. “And we can start with saving the cute remarks until you get the diamonds into Los Angeles.” She pours herself a tall glass of vermouth.

    “Well, where are they now?” asks Bond.

    “That’s not your problem,” replies Tiffany, recorking the vermouth. “Your problem is getting them in.”

    “How much is there?” asks Bond.

    “Fifty thousand carats,” says Tiffany.

    “Well, at a hundred and forty two carats an ounce, that’s an awful lot of ice!” says Bond. “That won’t be easy!”

    Tiffany sits down on a couch. “That’s why you’re being paid fifty grand! What did you think it was going to be, a pair of earrings? And Franks, for God’s sake –”

    Minute 020: I Don’t Dress for the Hired Help

    Tiffany dusts Bond’s glass for fingerprints, then takes a Polaroid picture of the glass. She brushes off the fingerprint dust residue from the glass and drops a couple of ice cubes into the Scotch.

    Meanwhile, Bond examines the contents of Tiffany Case’s dining room hutch. Case returns, wearing a sheer robe over her bra and panties.

    “That’s a nice little nothing you’re wearing,” remarks Bond, as Tiffany hands him his Scotch. “I approve.”

    “I don’t dress for the hired help,” replies Tiffany. “Let’s see your passport, Franks.”

    Bond reaches into his jacket and retrieves his passport, made out as “Peter Franks.”

    “Occupation: transport consultant?” smirks Tiffany as she reads his passport. “That’s a little cute, isn’t it?” She hands the passport back to Bond. “I’ll finish dressing,” she says.

    “Oh, please don’t,” replies Bond, “Not on my account.”

    Tiffany walks back to her dressing room, and peels the Polaroid print off the developer.

    She opens her armoire, revealing an electronic viewscreen. Turning the machine on, an enlarged image of Peter Franks’s fingerprint appears on the screen. She inserts the Polaroid print into the machine, and Bond’s print appears on the right of the screen. Tiffany compares the two prints, nodding as she decides they’re identical.

    Minute 018: Franks. Peter Franks.

    Wint and Kidd leave the Skinny Bridge, just as James Bond arrives one bridge over at a four-story townhouse in Peter Franks’ Triumph Stag sports car. Bond parks the car and heads up the three stone steps to the front door.

    He presses the doorbell to Apartment 4, home to a “T.Case.”

    “Yes?” says a female voice on the entrance intercom.

    “Franks. Peter Franks,” replies Bond.

    “Come up,” says the voice. “Third floor.” The door lock buzzes, and Bond steps inside.

    On the third floor, Bond exits the elevator, and walks toward the open front door of Apartment Four.  He steps inside an apartment decorated with Dutch Masters prints.

    “Make yourself at home,” says a blonde woman wearing panties and bra, her back to Bond, just exiting into the bedroom. “I’ll be right out.”

    Bond scans the room.

    “Help yourself to a drink!” calls the woman from the bedroom.

    “Is uh-” begins Bond.

Not your average bond podcast

The gents who run this podcast are clever, they don’t always discus the usual information that’s well known, they add information and facts that even a big bond fan like myself wasn’t aware off! I hope they can continue!
