Profile

As with a number of other Bond Girls, Plenty's introduction is famous. After hearing Bond buy-in at the Craps table for a large amount, she walks up to him and says cheerily "Hi! I'm Plenty". Bond then takes a look at her ample cleavage responding, "But of course you are".

Starting with $10,000, Bond manages to make $50,000 on the Craps table and gives $5,000 to Plenty for her 'help'. Uncharacteristically for 007, he wishes Plenty goodnight, but she thinks she's onto a winner, and so takes Bond for a drink.

Shortly after Bond takes Plenty back to his hotel room where he starts to undress her. Unknown to Bond, some of Tiffany's men are waiting, and escort a topless Plenty out of the window more than 10 stories up into a pool below. Looking down from above Bond comments them about the "Exceptionally fine shot". He is a little surprised when he hears that they weren't expecting her to land in a pool!

Later, although nothing to do with the diamond smuggling, Mr Kidd and Mr Wint kill Plenty by drowning her in Tiffany's pool after mistaking Plenty for her.

About

Plenty O'Toole certainly knows how to use men for her advantage. She likes to gamble, but with other peoples money. Plenty is first seen gambling with another man's money, but when he comments he is out of cash and suggests they "Go back to my place" she gives him the brush off. On her way to find her next victim, she hears Bond ask for $10,000 credit at the Craps table and introduces herself.

Even after being given $5,000 for her limited help, she still thinks Bond is 'a bit strange'. Nevertheless, she thinks she is onto a good thing. However, it is her involvement with Bond that, like some other Bond Girls, causes her death.

Trivia

Plenty's death is not explained properly in the final cut of Diamonds Are Forever. Featuring in deleted scenes, Plenty is seen taking Bond out to dinner. After she is thrown out the window, she returns to Bond's room to see him and Tiffany in bed. After discovering Tiffany's address in her handbag, she decides to pay her a visit. However when Mr Kidd and Mr Wint pay Tiffany a visit, they mistake Plenty for Tiffany, leading to her death. §
