    Excellent thread! So, I decided to go a little different with my list. Instead of adjectives, I went with more of a free association approach. This led to some results that are far from universal - things that stand out in my memory, or things that stood out when I first watched the films and stuck with me. The only rule I self imposed was that none of my results would be character names...I feared that otherwise the list would read "Honey, Plenty, Vesper, Aki, etc" At any rate...
