Clarence Leiter: [Picking up glass] “Have you ever seen Le Chiffre?”
James Bond: “No.”
Clarence Leiter: [Holding glass] “Go on explaining the game.”

Clarence Leiter: [Smoking cigarette] “You can look now.”
Clarence Leiter: [Smoking cigarette] “He’s a fanatic. He’s ruthless, incorruptible and everything he does is entirely legal. But he has a weak spot. And that’s how you got into it.”
