"The first one won’t kill you."
Description: Robert Shaw as SPECTRE assassin Donald "Red" Grant in the spy thriller From Russia with Love (1963).
Instructed to kill British secret agent James Bond (Sean Connery), Grant corners 007 in his train compartment and gleefully taunts, “Keep still. And now get up on your knees. Put your hands in your pocket. Keep ‘em there. How does it feel old man?”
After Grant reveals his plans for Bond (“I can see the headlines: BRITISH AGENT MURDERS BEAUTIFUL RUSSIAN SPY THEN COMMITS MURDER”) Bond sneers, “Tell me. Which lunatic asylum did they get you out of?”
Grant replies, “Don’t make it tougher on your self. My orders are to kill you and deliver the Lektor (a decoding device). How I do it’s my business. It’ll be slow and painful. [pointing his gun] The first one won‘t kill you. Nor the second. Not even the third. Not till you crawl over here and kiss my foot.”
Staying cool as usual, Bond simply says, “How ‘bout a cigarette?” Then, luring the killer to open a booby-trapped briefcase, Bond jumps the man, and in the struggle, stabs the assassin in the shoulder and then uses Grant’s own strangle wire to finish him off.
Later, SPECTRE agent Lotte Lenya (Rosa Klebb), an ex-KGB agent tries to jab Bond with a venom-dipped dagger hidden in the tip of her shoe, but Bond’s female companion Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi) shoots Lotte as Bond quips, “Yes, she’s had her kicks.”
Note: In the film Sins of the Night (1993) Miles O’Keeffe as Tony Falcone tells Roxanne Flowers (Deborah Shelton) “I want you to fucking crawl to me. Get on your fucking knees and crawl to me. Crawl to me now. Crawl to me you fucking trash!”
