Even if he is in a very critical situation like jumping after an aeroplane which is falling to the ground climb into the plane and fly away with it. He produces lots of gadgets in his laboratory, which are supposed to help Mr Bond on his missions. In every film he gets a new car from Q. We also have this woman called moneypenny, who seems to be in love with Mr Bond but never gets him. Another classical character in the bond films is one of his enemies who is a very big man called Jaws.
He never says anything and no one knows why. One exemption for that is in the film moonraker when he becomes friend with Mr Bond says cheers with a champagne glass in his hands.
All these things are classical for almost every bond film. Some other classical things in the bond films are all the sponsors that want their names in the film. Why did these companies pay money to have their name in the film? Some people have Mr Bond as an idol and they want to be alike him and hopefully they will use the same champagne or the same car as he does. That may sound very farfetched but they actually make more money out of this then they pay for having their name in the films.
