Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Tee-Hee Johnson

One of Mr. Big's lackeys. He has an affinity for breaking fingers.

Buonapart Ignace Gallia, a.k.a. Mr. Big

The Film

Solitaire (Jane Seymour)

The Big Bad's Fortune Teller whose genuine ability gave him an edge in the criminal underworld. He also makes it no secret that he's in love with her.

  • Damsel in Distress: This might sound redundant, but the others usually get at least one Badass moment. Solitaire, on the other hand, is possibly the least action-oriented of the Bond Girls.
  • Rape Is Love: Bond's tricking her into sleeping with him is considered by many not one of his finer moments.
    • Post-coital, she's pretty happy about it though...

"For the first time in my life, I feel like a complete woman."

Tee Hee (Julius Harris)

Baron Samedi (Geoffrey Holder)

Dr. Kananga / Mr. Big
