From Tysto commentaries:
Bond is back again and
ConneryLazenby plays him. Join me as I investigate the one and only appearance of George Lazenby in the role and try to figure out what the hell is going on. I mock the nonsensical missions-that-aren’t-missions, gadgets-that-aren’t-gadgets, and Blofeld’s plan-that-isn’t-a-plan that amounts to hypno-zombie debutantes with poison spray bottles.
I analyze Blofeld’s weird philanthropic tendencies, Tracy’s unexplained suicidal tendencies, and her father’s henchmen’s random homicidal tendencies. And I analyze Bond’s cozy relationship with the self-confessed second-biggest crime lord in Europe.
I obsessively identify the various cars. I try to imagine a less likely man to pretend to be a homosexual in a skirt and frilly blouse. I try to identify the moment Bond genuinely falls in love. And I try to identify the moment Bond realizes that his sex addiction has allowed a known international terror-extortionist to successfully launch his plan.
So now we’re gonna meet … the second biggest crime lord in all of Europe. And he has his headquarters in a crummy, run-down warehouse—not a hollowed-out volcano. … You gotta be number one to do that.— Tysto Commentaries,

I’m not sure I can think of anyone who would be more manly playing a homosexual in a lace blouse and man-skirt. Like, maybe, John Wayne?— ,

What’s the difference between ‘infertility’ and [as Blofeld] ‘to-tal infertility’?— ,

So he gets up, he’s knocked for a loop, but the first thing he thinks of is, ‘ … I wanna marry my girlfriend. What I’m not gonna do is check to see if [Blofeld] is dead.’— ,
