Chief henchman, Tee Hee, has a particularly useful disability. We later learn that an alligator accident left him with just the one upper limb, but the mechanical arm he had to replace it is more than a tad useful.
Admittedly the suit doesn’t fit quite as well, but he is able to bend Bond’s gun without any leverage. It really is very strong.
Although it is not quite as impressive as, "Names is for tombstones baby", it is used as a punch line presenter for Bond, who gets to utter one of the greatest ever 007 quotes, “Butterhook”. Arguably one of the best politically incorrect disability movie jokes of all time.
We also enjoyed the errors in the scenes with Tee Hee.
For example, in the scene depicted in the screen shit above you will see a crew member reflect in the glass of the train window. You can also see Julius W Harris's arm at one stage of the struggle. And it's not the first time, when he is feeding the alligators you can clearly see his wrist move.
It is a magical arm though, as was displayed by the occasion that Tee Hee knocks Bond unconscious - he struck 007 on the shoulder blade, which obviously wouldn't work.
The scene where Tee implausibly bends 007's gun features a weapon with a clear crease that would suggest the feeblest person could have bent it without the help of a super strong mechanical arm that didn't require leverage.
