Part 5 of 7
Bond might be a fugitive,
wanted by his own people, but he knows that
there are two people who
would never turn him in: Moneypenny and Q.
Bond contacts them.† They still have not found a cure.† They provide 007
with some weapons, money,
phony ids, and another lead: Drax Industries.
That company had some severe
legal problems some years ago, specifically
with their Moonraker
program.† However, the new management,
Heather Drax, has stayed out
of any illegal activities since then.
Nevertheless, Drax Industries
does have the funds and technology to
create such a poison.
Late at night, Bond does
some bungee jumping to sneak into their
corporate headquarters in
California.† He works his way towards
office.† Unknown to him, his every move
monitored by hidden
cameras.† The company president
recognizes his face
on the screen, so she tells
her security forces not to get in his way.

what she can tell him about radioactive

match about ideologies.† However, the verbal sparring arouses them.
They wind in a private
bedroom in her office.
While the camera shows an
exterior shot of the building, we hear Heather
gasping, "James!† Thereís more to you than I imagined!"
The next morning, Bond
phones Moneypenny.† She informs 007 that
have not found a cure,
yet.† Their computers are working
it, but it will take months,
maybe even years.
Bond informs Moneypenny that
Drax Industries is not responsible.† He
understands that he is
running out of time, so he says his final
farewell to Moneypenny.† He says that she is better than a computer,
all sorts of ways.† His only regret in life is that he never

turns up, "Make sure
they send me home first class."
He entrusts Moneypenny to
handle all the details of his memorial
service.† However, he advises her, "Iíve always
hated martial music."
Bond hangs up.† He makes a decision where he would like to
leaves California, and goes
back to England.† He wants to go back to
special place, the White
Cliffs of Dover.
Part 6 of 7
Bond arrives at the White
Cliffs of Dover, resigned to his fate.†
Trench finds him there.† She babbles how nobody seems to know where
is, but she remembered what
he said about the White Cliffs of Dover.
She is actually quite
distraught, and begs for his help.
Bond asks what is the
matter.† She explains that for months,
husband, Napoleon Soh Long,
has been stalking her, and threatening her.
He happens to be a Nobel
prize winner in medicine.† He has vast
resources at his disposal,
with which he has created a special

He says to her, "Thatís dťtente, comrade.

here.† The General says that Napoleon is, or
rather, was a deep cover
operative for Red
China.† She elaborates that they had
spent a lot of
time and a lot of money to
develop a special radioactive poison.
This poison was supposed to
be a secret.† Yet somehow, Drax
managed to provide a cure
for their company president.† This came

General, since she did not authorize anybody to use
