    Look, I think that essentially captures Bond at his very... something.

    That was five different flavors of incredible right there! I've been considering seeing it (my first full Bond movie), but now I am convinced. :lol:

    Isn't she the one who sang a Bond theme containing phrases like "I'm in a puddle on the floor"? :wtf:

    Here I thought this was serious.

    I interrupted a Yanni song for that!

    I would have to go reread the short story, but I believe Quantum of Solace is a big latinized nothing that means "make-up sex."

    And, in line with the themesong:

    I always took 'quantum of solace' to mean 'a little bit of comfort' or something like that.

    Again, I'd have to pull out the short story. Maybe if I trek into my library tomorrow, I'll post the condensed definition. Make-up sex. Just go with it.

    "Quantum" means the smallest amount of something; the study of subatomic particles and such is called quantum physics. "Solace" means, obviously, comfort.

    In the short story it's used as a term to define the one thing that every human relationship needs in order to survive: a tiny amount of compassion. Once it's gone, the relationship is dead.

    And because what she did to him was so heinous, he wasn't interested in make-up sex, and thus the Quantum of Solace in their relationship was extinguished.
