Selling heroin for money

Kananga:
...What did you call me - a WHOLESALER?
[laughs with scorn]

Kananga:
How old-hat can you get... *selling heroin for money!*
James Bond:
My apologies; I'm sure you simply GIVE it away.
Kananga:
Precisely, Mr. Bond. Two tons of it, to be exact. When entering into a vastly competitive field, one finds it advantageous to give away free samples. Man, woman, child, Black, White, Latino... I don't discriminate.
James Bond:
Four thousand pounds of heroin, with a street value of well over $1 billion, nationally distributed for free? That should make a certain network of families rather angry, wouldn't you say?
Kananga:
ANGRY? Why, my dear Mr. Bond, it'll drive them positively out of their minds... not to mention out of the business.
James Bond:
Quite ingenious. A sort of junkies' welfare system.
Kananga:
Well, merely until the number of addicts in this country has *doubled*, shall we say. Then I will proceed to market that acreage which you blundered into the other day. That heroin will be very expensive, indeed... leaving the phone company and myself the only two growing monopolies in this nation for *years* to come.
James Bond:
And I thought it was Solitaire that did the fortune telling.
Kananga:
Let's hope, for BOTH your sakes, she still CAN.

Transcript:
And as Mr. Big, distributor and wholesaler
through a chain of
Fillet of Soul restaurants.
Wholesale?
Sell heroin for money?
My apologies.
I'm sure you simply give it away.
Excellent, Mr. Bond.
That's precisely what I intend to do.
Two tons of it to be exact.
When entering
into a fiercely competitive field,
one finds it advisable
to give away free samples.
Man or woman, black or white.
I don't discriminate.
Two tons of heroin with a street value
well over a billion dollars,
nationally distributed free?
That should make a certain group of
families rather angry, wouldn't you say?
Angry?
Why, my dear Mr. Bond,
it'll positively drive them
out of their minds
and, subsequently, out of the business.
Quite ingenious.
A sort of junkie's welfare system.
Well, merely until the number
of addicts in the country
has doubled, shall we say.
Then I will begin to market that acreage
that you blundered into the other day.
That heroin will be very expensive indeed,
leaving myself and the phone company
the only two going monopolies
in this nation for years to come.
And here I thought it was Solitaire
did the fortunetelling.
Let's hope for both of your sakes
she still can.
The question still stands, Mr. Bond,
asked by the gentleman concerned.
Did you touch her?
Why, it's not the sort of question
a gentleman answers.
Well, having set the example,
I don't expect Miss Solitaire
to be any less the lady.
By the way,
that's a particularly handsome
watch you're wearing, Mr. Bond.
- May I see it, please?
- You'll forgive me if I don't get up.
Butterhook.
Tee Hee,
on the first wrong answer
from Miss Solitaire,
you will snip the little finger
of Mr. Bond's right hand.
Starting with the second wrong answer,
you'll proceed to the more vital areas.
Solitaire, my dear,
I want you to listen to me very carefully.
On the back of Mr. Bond's watch,
the registration number
3-2-6-6.
