    Summary

    Bond didn’t do families. He had one, once, that he vaguely remembered. He’d met the occasional target’s parents, but only when it was unavoidable, and never as more than part of an investigation. M had come the closest to being something of a maternal figure in Bond’s life (“at least I got something right”), but even at that she was more his commanding officer than anyone remotely affectionate.

    This was why, when Q explained (rather forcefully) that he didn’t want Bond to have anything to do with his family, Bond didn’t object.

    Unhappily for both of them, it didn’t make any difference.

    Summary

    The top agents in MI6 are Angels - there's nothing angelic about them, but they sure are dangerous. And not always good with taking orders from bespectacled, stringy Quartermasters.
    MI6 has decided that a new strategy is needed to ensure the success of their missions, and for that, they hired Q: with his genius mind and [mostly] cool head, it became his job to coordinate the 00-missions.
    Now the double-o's have a voice in their ear telling them what to do, where to go on missions.
    Do the double-o's take well to this?
    No. And the worst ones are 006, 7, and 8...

    In which Q's got a spine and is willing to beat double-o's over the head with it.

    Summary

    There's even a fancy word for it: rehabilitation. The army psychiatrist used to like using it, to make sure he was aware that things were probably going to be difficult for him to start with.

    Summary

    "No," said Mrs. Kurzweiler, the sex-ed teacher for the greater Hawkins-area school district, looking down her nose at Nancy over her glasses. "No, you cannot claim shared credit on the Parenting Enrichment Experience project, Miss Wheeler. I'm surprised you're even asking, given the nature of the assignment."

    Summary

    You don’t look back. Never look back. Eyes down, much better. Look at the table, look at your hands, trace the thin blue line of your veins running down from the knuckles.

    Eleven learns a new word to explain a very familiar feeling.
