Kronsteen and puts a glass of water and a mat in front of him. STILL CLOSER Kronsteen stares at the waiter, whose hand still grips the
glass. The hand backs away and Kronsteen picks up the glassand the mat. He starts to drink then looks through the glass. We hear the clock still ticking.
KRONSTEEN'S POV - THE GLASS AND MAT Seen through the bottom of the glass on the mat are the words: 'YOU ARE REQUIRED
AT ONCE.' KRONSTEEN sets the glass down and dabs the mat against his lips.
Meanwhile Macadams looks at the chessboard. Kronsteen tears up the mat. OVER KRONSTEEN'S SHOULDER Macadams moves a black chess piece and clicks the timer. ANGLE ON THE SCOREBOARD 1ST UMPIRE King to rook two. The Attendant moves a corresponding black piece. ATTENDANT King to rook two.

ROSA KLEB is looking into a desktop aquarium. She moves backwards looking down at it.
BLOFELD (O.S.)Siamese fighting fish. Fascinating creatures. Brave, but on the whole, stupid.
KLEB'S POV - THE AQUARIUM
Three fish swim in it.
CLOSE SHOT - BLOFELD'S LAP
A white cat rests in his lap and he pets it.
BLOFELD (O.S.)Except for the occasional one suchas we have here...
CLOSE SHOT - AQUARIUM
The fish swim around each other and then, in quick cuts, fighteach other.
BLOFELD (O.S.)...who lets the other two fightwhile he waits... waits until the survivor is so exhausted that he cannot defend himself.
BLOFELD (O.S.)And then, like SPECTRE, he strikes. CLOSE-UP - KLEB KLEB I find the parallel -- amusing. CLOSE SHOT - BLOFELD'S CAT Blofeld handles the cat.

He continues to stroke it.
BLOFELD ... while we listen to what Number Five has devised for us.
CLOSE-UP - KLEB
I hope Kronsteen's efforts as
Director of Planning will continue
to be as successful as his chess.
CLOSE-UP - KRONSTEEN
They will be. According to your
instructions, I have planned for
SPECTRE to steal from the Russians
their new Lektor decoding machine.
For this we need the services of a
female member of the Russian
cryptograph section in Turkey and
- uh - the help of the British Secret Service.
CLOSE-UP - KLEB
Listening, she looks up at Kronsteen.
Naturally, neither the Russians nor
the British will be aware...

He continues to pet it.

Number Three, is your section ready
to carry out Kronsteen's directives?
CLOSE-UP - KLEB
Yes, Number One. The operation
will be organized according to
Kronsteen's plan. I have selected
a suitable girl from the Russian
Consulate in Istanbul. She's
capable, cooperative, and her
loyalty to the State is beyond

Yes, it is, because I have
anticipated every possible
variation of counter-move.
CLOSE SHOT - BLOFELD'S CAT
As he strokes it:
But what makes you think that 'M,'
the head of British intelligence,
will oblige you by falling in with
CLOSE-UP - KRONSTEEN
For the simple reason that it is soobviously a trap.
(he starts to put thecigarette into hismouth then lowers it)
My reading of the British mentality is that they always treat a trap asa challenge. And in any case, theycouldn't possibly pass up even theslightest chance of getting theirhands on a Lektor decoder. Theyhave wanted one for years.
CLOSE SHOT - BLOFELD'S CAT
As he strokes it: BLOFELD (O.S.)
Um-hmm. All that you say could be
true. What else?
CLOSE-UP - KRONSTEEN
As an added refinement, I think
that SPECTRE would probably have
the added chance of a personal
revenge for the killing of our
operative, Doctor No. Because the
man the British will almost
certainly use on a mission of this
sort would be their agent, James

Morzeny touches Kleb's elbow as if to escort her; she backsaway repulsed.
Kleb, Morzeny and Rhoda walk across the grounds.

Grant walks up to the visitors. He stops in front of Kleb and stands at attention. Kleb circles him, looking him over. As she does, she puts on a knuckle duster.
When Kleb arrives in front of Grant again she suddenly puncheshim hard in the stomach. He barely flinches.
KLEB He seems fit enough. Have him report to me in Istanbul in twenty-four hours.

KLEB Your work record is excellent. The State is proud of you.
Tania is surprised, then unbuttons and removes her jacket.
Tania obediently pivots around.
KLEB Umm. You are a fine-looking girl.
Tania glances down diffidently.
Tania sits in the chair and keeps looking at Kleb, whocontinues to scan the dossier.

BOND (kneeling with his

Red wine with fish. That should
have told me something.
(slips the silencer intohis pocket and rests hisfree arm on his knee)
You may know the right wines, butyou're the one on your knees. How does it feel, old man?
'Old man'? Is that what you chaps
in SMERSH call each other?
(looks up with realization)
Of course! SPECTRE! Then it
wasn't a Russian show at all.
You've been playing us off against
each other, haven't you?
Grant stares back at him.
Then it was SPECTRE who killed the
Russian agent in the mosque. You?
Well, I don't mind talking. I get
a kick out of watching the great
James Bond find out what a bloody
fool he's been making of himself.
He takes Bond's gun from his pocket, sets it on the couch,then takes out the silencer.
He attaches the silencer to Bond's gun.

He sets the letter down.
GRANT Taken in the bridal suite at yourhotel. Something else the girldidn't know about. Or you.
BOND Must be a pretty sick collection ofminds to dream up a plan like that.
GRANT Can't you see the headlines?'British agent murders beautifulRussian spy, then commits suicide'?
BOND Tell me. Which lunatic asylum didthey get you out of?
GRANT Don't make it tougher on yourself.
DOLLY BACK as Grant walks over to Bond and slaps his facehard.
