No polls this time around, just want to know what everyone's best and worst film/scene/one-liner/villain/Bond girl/gadget etc of the respective eras of Bond. From Connery all the way to Craig, i'll get the ball rolling.

Sean Connery

Best film: Goldfinger
Worst film: Diamonds are Forever
Best scene: Industrial laser to groin "You expect me to talk? No, Mr Bond, i expect you to DIE!" (Goldfinger)
Worst scene: Bond gets his backside handed to him by Bambi and Thumper (Diamonds are Forever)
Best one-liner: Nameless thug in bath, meet electric fan - "Shocking, postively shocking." (Goldfinger)
Worst one-liner: When speaking to Plenty O'Toole's chest - "But of course you are" (Diamonds are Forever)
Best villain: Ernst Stavro Blofeld - He legitimately ruined Bond's life.
Worst villains: Mr Kidd and Mr Wint, two henchmen with very bad hair.
Best Bond girl: Honey Ryder - set the benchmark, and who could forget THAT scene?
Worst Bond girl: Plenty O'Toole - doesn't do much except for acting the sacrificial lamb when she's drowned by Kid and Wint.
Best gadget: Aston Martin DB5 - Best Bond car in the series, ejector seats should be legal!
Worst gadget: N/A, don't think Connery ever had a bad gadget.

Roger Moore

Best film: The Spy who Loved Me
Worst film: A View to a Kill
Best scene: The speedboat chase (Live and Let Die)
Worst scene: Bond disguised as a clown (Octopussy)
Best one-liner: Kanaga goes "pop" "He always did have an inflated opinion of himself" Live and Let Die
Worst one-liner: "I think he's attempting re-entry sir" Q, after finding Bond and Holly Goodhead having zero gravity sex. (Moonraker)
Best villain: Jaws - TSWLM incarnation, he was genuinely tough and unbeatable, then turned into a side-show
Worst villain: Nick Nack, nothing but short little midget that resorts to bottle throwing before he's subdued.
Best Bond girl: Major Anya Amasova - glamorus and gorgeous back in the day.
Worst Bond gir:l Stacey Sutton - All she did was scream and had wooden acting.
Best gadget: The Lotus Esprit that turns into a submarine, how cool is that?!
Worst gadget: Alligator boat - a boat disguised as a gator, really?

Timothy Dalton

Best film: The Living Daylights - hard choice, but TLD was pretty underrated
Worst film: N/A - Licence to Kill is also underrated, hard choice i know!
Best scene: Aston Martin chase (The Living Daylights)
Worst scene: N/A - Another hard choice
Best one-liner: "He got the boot" After killing Necros
Worst one-liner: "Bon appetite" After throwing a henchman into a cabinet of maggots (Connery did it better with the piranhas)
Best villain: - Franz Sanchez - he may be a big stereotype, but he was pretty dangerous and short-tempered.
Worst villain: Milton Krest - Served no purpose, killed off by Sanchez
Best Bond girl: Lupe Lamora - Quite good-looking, but ultimately a little simpering when next to Pam Bouvier.
Worst Bond girl: N/A, three for three!
Best gadget: Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante - lasers, missiles, rocket motor - nuff said.
Worst gadget: N/A, make that four for four.

Pierce Brosnan

Best film: Goldeneye
Worst film: Die Another Day
Best scene: Tank chase (Goldeneye)
Worst scene: Bond parasurfing (Die Another Day_
Best villian: Alec Trevelyan - Best Bond villain in a long time
Worst villain: Elliott Carver - Think a crazed newsreader with genocidal tendencies
Best one-liner: "She always did enjoy a good squeeze" After introducing Xenia Onatopp to a conveniently placed tree (Goldeneye)
Worst one-liner: "I thought Christmas only comes once a year." Groan......
Best Bond girl: Xenia Onatopp - She may be a bad one, but she was pretty much the best of the Brosnan era
Worst Bond girl: Christmas Jones - Denise Richards as a nuclear scientist? Really?
Best gadget: The remote controlled BMW - top gadgets too.
Worst gadget: Invisible Aston Martin - I love Aston Martins, just not invisible ones!

Daniel Craig

Best film: Skyfall/Casino Royale
Worst film: N/A, QOS wasn't that bad
Best scene: Parkour chase (Casino Royale)
Worst scene: N/A
Best villain: Raoul Silva - Think ALec Trevelyan, but more flamboyant
Worst villain: Dominic Greene - An utter wimp of a villain, worst one ever IMO
Best one-liner: "Last rat standing" After knifing Silva in the back
Worst one-liner: N/A
Best Bond girl: Vesper Lynd - Best of the Craig era
Worst Bond girl: Strawberry Fields - another sacrificial lamb
Best gadget: Does Craig really need gadgets?
Worst gadget: See above.

Fire away!

What about villain one-liners? "Making mud pies, 007?"

I wouldn't really consider myself a huge Bond fan per se, but I have seen several of the films and have enjoyed their general atmosphere, self-conscious cheesiness, etc. I've got some slightly different categories that I'll use:

Best quality film overall: "Casino Royale" (2006) (although I haven't seen the more recent Craig films).

Best films for general atmosphere, "look," etc. - "Dr. No.", "Live and Let Die," "Diamonds Are Forever."

Best visuals and music for the intro. - "The Spy Who Loved Me" (pure 70's)

Best one-liner: "That's my little octopussy." - "Octopussy" (1983)

Actually, it was Lazzenby who played Bond when Blofeld ruined Bond's life by murdering his new Bride.

Best bond film: Casino Royale. Good plot, decent amount of action and seems convincing enough to be a real spy movie, twist at the end

Best bond: Sean connery. Most of the memorable bond movies come from him
