Moore dressed as a clown, being jeered at by a bunch of students in a car, who pretend to stop to give him a lift, then drive off on him, is a Bond nadir, IMHO. You just cannot imagine Connery's Bond taking shit like that. Then there's his Barbara Woodhouse 'SIT!' impression to the tiger. For me, Octopussy is one of the worst entries in the 007 canon as a result. Shame, because as has been said, had he quit after FYEO, Moore would have had a good run of Bond movies, with only TMWTGG and Moonraker as duds.
