‘Feelings aroused by the touch of someone’s hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith – all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.’ – Bernie Siegel
Bond: You changed your mind. – l’m glad. – Are you?

Magda: Thank you.
Bond: So does he have a proposition for me, or do you?
Magda: He suggests a trade. The egg for your life.
Bond: l’d heard the price of eggs was going up, but isn’t that a little high?

Magda: Charge it to Room…?
Bond: Oh, along with the champagne, l suppose? Why? Has Kamal forgotten what l look like already?
Magda: lt’s for me.
Bond: So that if l depart this world suddenly, you’ll have something to remember me by?
Magda: Something like that. lt’s for my scrapbook. l collect memories.
Therefore, I decided to record my own voice and send it to Penelope – just in case, ‘So that if l depart this world suddenly, you’ll have something to remember me by’? Thought 5,000 plus billet doux, hallmark cards, creative works from L.S.S. Inc. [poems plus 100’s of creative works from Love’s Secret Service, Inc.] and umpteen songs [on cassettes / CD’s] wouldn’t be enough besides the original voice would carry more weight.
