operation

An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with analysis. We call intuition here the sympathy by which one is transported into the interior of an object in order to coincide with what there is unique and consequently inexpressible in it. Analysis, on the contrary, is the operation which reduces the object to elements already known.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Something must be done when you find an opposing set of desires of this kind well to the fore in your category of strong desires. You must set in operation a process of competition, from which one must emerge a victor and the other set be defeated.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Dr. Evil: Our early attempts at a tractor beam went through several preparations. Preparations A through G were a complete failure. But now, ladies and gentlemen, we finally have a working tractor beam, which we shall call... Preparation H.
[Scott snickers]
Dr. Evil: What?
Scott Evil: Why don't you just call it operation ass-cream, you ass.
Dr. Evil: I'm sorry, did you say you want some ice cream?
Scott Evil: Yes, I'd love some chocolate ass-cream.
Dr. Evil: Perhaps later.
Number 2: Dr. Evil, I love your plan.
Dr. Evil: You do?
Frau Farbissina: Yah. It's a really good plan.
Dr. Evil: Yes Frau, on the whole Preparation H feels good.

Dr. Evil: What is it now?
Scott Evil: No, I totally agree with you. Preparation H does feel good... on the hole.More [08/08/2005 12:08:00]

James Bond: Operation Grand Slam, for instance.
Auric Goldfinger: Two words you may have overheard, which cannot have the slightest significance to you or anyone in your organization.

Adrian Cronauer: Well I really didn't make that suggestion, sir, I'm sorry.
Lt. Steven Hauk: Why would Cronauer's voice be on this tape?
Private Abersold: I don't know, sir.
Adrian Cronauer: Mr Nixon, thank you for that concise political commentary, but I think I'd rather delve into a more personal for the men in the field. How would you describe your testicles?
Richard Nixon: [Hauk turns to the radio in horror] That they're soft and they're very shallow and they serve no purpose.
Adrian Cronauer: So what are you saying, sir?
Richard Nixon: They lack the physical strength.
Lt. Steven Hauk: Oh, my God. Please don't do this to me.
Adrian Cronauer: How would you describe your sex life with your wife Pat?
Richard Nixon: It is unexciting sometimes.
Adrian Cronauer: Well, you can consider a sex change. There is an operation that can transform you into a female white dane or a very hell wung chihuaua. Mr. Nixon it is rumored that you have smoked marijuana. Are you planning to take some of the marijuana home back to the United States? How would you do that?
Richard Nixon: By plane. By helicopter and also by automobile.More [12/30/2007 12:12:00]

Dr. Lynn Denlon: My twenty second analysis without any medical equipment is that his brain is herniating.
Amanda: [sarcastically] Oh.

The Spider:
Hmm, his condition seems critical.



Moloch:
What if should die?



The Spider:
Then we will eliminate a very dangerous enemy.



Moloch:
He won't die, but by means of this operation - a simple altering of certain glands - he will be unable to distinguish between right and wrong.



The Spider:
In that event, he will be very useful to us, Moloch, very useful.

[Al is speaking to the banquet]



Al Stephenson:
I'm glad to see you've all pulled through so well. As Mr. Milton so perfectly expressed it: our country stands today... where it stands today... wherever that is. I'm sure you'll all agree with me if I said that now is the time for all of us to stop all this nonsense, face facts, get down to brass tacks, forget about the war and go fishing. But I'm not gonna say it. I'm just going to sum the whole thing up in one word.


[Milly coughs loudly to caution him - worrying that he will tell off the boss]



Al Stephenson:
My wife doesn't think I'd better sum it up in that one word. I want to tell you all that the reason for my success as a Sergeant is due primarily to my previous training in the Cornbelt Loan and Trust Company. The knowledge I acquired in the good ol' bank I applied to my problems in the infantry. For instance, one day in Okinawa, a Major comes up to me and he says, "Stephenson, you see that hill?" "Yes sir, I see it." "All right," he said. "You and your platoon will attack said hill and take it." So I said to the Major, "but that operation involves considerable risk. We haven't sufficient collateral." "I'm aware of that," said the Major, "but the fact remains that there's the hill and you are the guys who are going to take it." So I said to him, "I'm sorry, Major... no collateral, no hill." So we didn't take the hill and we lost the war. I think that little story has considerable significance, but I've forgotten what it is. And now in conclusion, I'd like to tell you a humorous anecdote. I know several humorous anecdotes, but I can't think of any way to clean them up, so I'll only say this much. I love the Cornbelt Loan and Trust Company. There are some who say that the old bank is suffering from hardening of the arteries and of the heart. I refuse to listen to such radical talk. I say that our bank is alive, it's generous, it's human, and we're going to have such a line of customers seeking and GETTING small loans that people will think we're gambling with the depositors' money. And we will be. We will be gambling on the future of this country. I thank you.

[Farago is about to be operated by Eugene]



Raoul Farrago:
Doctor, do many people die in an operation like this?



Dr. Eugene Norland Ferguson:
Under the best conditions, about 12 percent. These are not the best conditions.

Dr. Eugene Norland Ferguson:

Narrator:
One morning, two hours after dawn, the first manned rocket in the history of the world takes off from the Tarooma Range, Australia. The three observers see on their scanning screens a quickly receding Earth. The rocket is guided from the ground by remote control as they rise through the ozone layer, the stratosphere, the ionosphere, beyond the air. They are to reach a height of fifteen hundred miles above the Earth and there learn what is to be learnt. For an experiment is an operation designed to discover some unknown truth. It is also ... a risk.

Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
[showing Gibson a model of the targets] Well, Gibson, there it is. That's your main target - the Moehne Dam.



Gibson:
So *that's* it. I thought it was going to be the "Tirpitz".



Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
If you can blow a hole in this wall...


[points to model]



Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
-you'll bring the Ruhr steel industry to a standstill; and do much other damage besides. I'm showing you the targets. But you'll be the only man in the squadron who knows, so keep it that way.



Gibson:
Very good, sir.



Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
[indicates other models] And these are the models of the two other dams, the Eder and the Sorpe. But, the Moehne is the most important one.



Gibson:
I see, sir.



Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
Come along and study these as often as you like. We're having regular reconnaissance to see what they're doing over there and what's the height of the water. The operation must be carried out when the lakes are full.



Gibson:
When's that likely to be, sir?



Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
About the middle of May. You'll need a good moon as well. So, it looks like we're tied to a night between the 12th and the 17th. By the time the next full moon comes around the water level will have started to fall again, so it's our only chance this year. About five weeks from now. How's the training going?



Gibson:
Oh, pretty well sir. Except for the low flying.



Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
Yes, I guessed you'd be in trouble over that.



Gibson:
It's fairly easy by day, but night flying over water at 150 feet is pretty near impossible.



Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
You can't trust your altimeters?



Gibson:
No to the limits Mister Wallis wants. He insists on 150 feet. Not a foot below, or a foot above. I'd hoped we could get over it by practice. But, on still nights, when the water's smooth, there's a sort of no man's land between the dusk and the water.



Air Vice-Marshal Cochrane:
Well, I've got the Farnborough experts on that. I hope they'll come along with an idea. By the way, Wallis is going to test the full-sized bomb at Reculver tomorrow. I'd like you to go down and watch. Take your bombing leader with you.



Gibson:
Right, sir.

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
Gibson:
Well, the sixpenny bombsight works and the spotlamps work. We've flown two thousand hours, and dropped a good many more than two thousand practice bombs. The specially converted aircraft start arriving tomorrow. So, from now until the word "go" I want you to practice flying them at your all-up proper weights.


[indicates Young]



Gibson:
You can work that out, Dinghy. Don't forget that some of the armour's been taken out. And don't exceed 63,000 pounds or otherwise we shan't get off.


[looks around]



Gibson:
Any problems?



Squadron Leader H.M. Young, DFC:
You want the front gunner to stay in his turret the whole time?



Gibson:
Oh yes, he'll have to deal with the flak guns.



Squadron Leader H.M. Young, DFC:
The trouble with that is his feet.


[mimics with fingers]



Squadron Leader H.M. Young, DFC:
They dangle in front of the bomb-aimer's face. How about fixing up some stirrups to get his feet out of the way and make him more comfortable?



Gibson:
That's a good plan.



Squadron Leader H.E. Maudslay, DFC:
Have you any idea when we're going, sir?



Gibson:
Probably within a week. But, keep it under your hats! You won't have to put up with being called "the armchair squadron" much longer



Squadron Leader H.E. Maudslay, DFC:
Two months without an operation is getting us stalejake now.



Flight Lt. J.V. Hopgood, DFC:
There was damn near a riot yesterday when somebody in 57 Squadron started it again



Flight Lt. H.B. Martin, DSO, DFC, AFC:
Our fellows would feel better if they blew off steam



Gibson:

General "Buck" Turgidson:
Mr. President, about, uh, 35 minutes ago, General Jack Ripper, the commanding general of, uh, Burpelson Air Force Base, issued an order to the 34 B-52's of his Wing, which were airborne at the time as part of a special exercise we were holding called Operation Drop-Kick. Now, it appears that the order called for the planes to, uh, attack their targets inside Russia. The, uh, planes are fully armed with nuclear weapons with an average load of, um, 40 megatons each. Now, the central display of Russia will indicate the position of the planes. The triangles are their primary targets; the squares are their secondary targets. The aircraft will begin penetrating Russian radar cover within, uh, 25 minutes.



President Merkin Muffley:
General Turgidson, I find this very difficult to understand. I was under the impression that I was the only one in authority to order the use of nuclear weapons.



General "Buck" Turgidson:
That's right, sir, you are the only person authorized to do so. And although I, uh, hate to judge before all the facts are in, it's beginning to look like, uh, General Ripper exceeded his authority.

Hmm. What is your pleasure... poker... roulette... what?



Vice-Adm. Farley C. Barnswell:
No, those are house games. I don't much care for the odds.



Paul Girard:
What about horse racing?



Vice-Adm. Farley C. Barnswell:
On occasion... it depends on the race... sometimes the weather... and the horse does make the difference.



Paul Girard:
Hmm. That's true, that's true. What about the Preakness? Have you got anything good going there?



Vice-Adm. Farley C. Barnswell:
[Adm. Barnswell senses that Girard knows about the takeover plot] I only bet on sure things.



Paul Girard:
Admiral, you're a very lucky sailor. That's exactly what I've got for you: a sure thing.



Vice-Adm. Farley C. Barnswell:
What is the bet, Mr. Girard?



Paul Girard:
The bet is that there are members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who are involved in treason. We know who they are, we know the essence of the plan. Now from you, Admiral, I want a signed statement indicating at what moment you first heard of this operation and your complicity in this entire matter.



Vice-Adm. Farley C. Barnswell:
Frankly, I wish I had more time.



Paul Girard:
[sarcastically] I wish you did too, Admiral.

Col. Mathieu:
The word "torture" doesn't appear in our orders. We've always spoken of interrogation as the only valid method in a police operation directed against unknown enemies. As for the NLF, they request that their members, in the event of capture, should maintain silence for twenty-four hours, and then they may talk. So, the organization has already had the time it needs to render any information useless. What type of interrogation should we choose, the one the courts use for a murder case, that drags on for months?

Stromberg:
Well gentlemen, now that the moment has come to bid you farewell, I congratulate both you, Doctor, and you, Professor, on your brilliant work in the development of the submarine tracking system. Thanks primarily to you, I am happy to say that the first phase of our operation has met with considerable success. I have instructed my assistant to have paid into your Swiss bank account the sum of ten million dollars each.



Prof. Markovitz:
Thank you, sir.



Dr. Bechmann:
Thank you indeed.



Stromberg:
And that, I think, concludes our business. Before you go however, I very much regret to inform you that a dangerous development has recently been brought to my notice. Someone has been attempting to sell the plans of our tracking project to competing world powers; someone intimately associated with the project.

George Smiley:
"There are three of them, and Alleline." Control's words. He meant Operation Witchcraft. Merlin's minders or inventors, or programmers, or marionettes... or, what?

George Smiley:
And within six months of Bill Haydon's diagnosis, Control was indeed dead.



Peter Guillam:
And what killed him? Operation Witchcraft or Operation Testify?



George Smiley:
Neither. Let's not be melodramatic, Control would disapprove. He died of old age... a little early. But Testify destroyed his function in life, which was a form of murder.

Oliver Lacon:
You know, George, one thing perplexes me more than anything else about the mole conspiracy: well, Karla conceived Operation Witchcraft primarily as a means of placing poor Percy Alleline on Control's throne. But why didn't Karla want Haydon to simply take over the Circus himself. Well, surely it would have been much easier to arrange, with all of Bill's acknowledged accomplishments.


[cut to Haydon and Smiley walking the grounds of the detention camp]



Bill Haydon:
No, no. It was a perfect setup: Percy made the running, I slipstreamed behind him, Roy and Toby did the legwork. Being in charge would have bogged me down. All the admin, the dinners in Whitehall, hobnobbing with the Set...



George Smiley:
Never happened to Control.



Bill Haydon:
A natural recluse, Control. I couldn't have behaved that way and gotten away with it. Much better for me to remain the freewheeling subordinate, the laughing cavalier. No, no, George, Karla and I agreed: I'd have been wasted as Chief. Could have done it, of course.



George Smiley:
Of course.

Jennifer? ffolkes here. You can tell the Lord Privy Seal the operation had been completed. As planned, naturally.

Bootsie:
It seems you only bring trouble on yourself tryin' to be somethin' that you're not. Like that man from the Enquirer that I read about who gave himself a sex-change operation and was real sorry afterwards.

David Lightman:
Is it a game... or is it real?



Joshua:
What's the difference?



David Lightman:
[muttering] Oh wow.



Joshua:
You are a hard man to reach. Could not find you in Seattle and no terminal is in operation at your classified address.



David Lightman:
What classified address?



Joshua:
D.O.D. pension files indicate current mailing as: Dr Robert Hume, a.k.a. Stephen W. Falken, 5 Tall Cedar Road, Goose lsland, Oregon...

[Bond is released from jail in Paris for violating the Napoleonic Code]



M:
[to Bond] May I remind you that this operation was to be conducted discreetly. All it took was six million Francs in damages and penalties for violating most of the Napoleonic Code.



James Bond:
Well, under the circumstances, sir, I thought it MORE IMPORTANT to identify the assassin.



M:
What did you learn from Aubergine before his untimely demise?



James Bond:
[to M] Well, only that Zorin is having a thoroughbred sale at his stud not far from here. I think I should be there.


[to Tibbett]



James Bond:
Can you help me with that, Sir Godfrey?



Sir Godfrey Tibbett:
It may be possible to arrange an invitation. It's a bit short notice, but I might just be able to squeeze you in, Bond.



James Bond:
[to Tibbett] Thank you, sir.

General Washburne:
The only way to secure the peace, Senator, as I'm sure you know, is to be prepared. See, we can parachute these robot guys behind enemy lines. They hide out till the first strike blows over. Then each one is able to just carry a 25-megaton bomb right up the middle of Main Street Moscow - like the mailman bringing bad news. We call it Operation 'Gotcha LAST!'



Senator Mills:
That's what you call 'ENSURING PEACE'?



General Washburne:
Oh, yeah. Just as you say: 'Ensuring peace'.

Mr. President, I'm afraid the operation was not a success. They still have to do some work on your nose.

Spalding Gray:
The guy, the real estate agent takes me into the corner and says with his cigar-y breath and says, "Listen, I think we can get this cheap. I think we can get this for 26-5. His oldest daughter has to have an emergency kidney operation or she'll DIE."
