2013-12-28 Rerun commentary: The actual lines from the film are:

James Bond: Is your name Quarrel?
Quarrel: Maybe.
James Bond: I'm a friend of... Commander Strangways.
Just a little more noncommittal.

The screenplay for Dr No is credited to Richard Maibaum. He actually wrote it with Wolf Mankowitz, but when Mankowitz saw some of the early footage that was being filmed, he insisted on having his name removed from the credits because he was convinced it was going to be a huge flop. He was duly removed.

There's that hindsight thing again...
