Comic #364

1 Geltschilling: James! Where have you been? I've been searching all over London for you.
1 Stud: Geltschilling! What gives?
2 Geltschilling: Not me, that's for sure. And don't try to seduce me with that tuxedo either.
3 Ñ: {over the intercom} Omit the customary byplay with 0x0A, Miss Geltschilling. James, get in here.
4 Stud: I'll be there in... oh... ten minutes should do, sir.
4 Geltschilling: I think I'm going to be sick.

New theme, new characters! Bang, bang, bang!

I'd rather not explain everything about these character right away in annotations, so you get to discover them as the story unfolds.

2012-12-27 Rerun commentary: Since this is 1962, Miss Geltschilling of course has a typewriter on her desk, not a computer. In case that was confusing anyone. The other, smaller brown box is the intercom.

The running gag here is that the regular James Bond is a smooth ladies' man, while in contrast women find James Stud all too resistable.

I always thought it was a very clever bit of scripting to have (in the movie Dr No) M use the line, "Omit the customary byplay with 007, Miss Moneypenny," in his very first line in the very first movie. It implies a much larger backstory and continuity of the characters, right from the get go.
