When 007 engages in a high-speed car chase with Xenia Onatopp the evaluator becomes noticeably agitated by his driving and eventually orders Bond to stop the car immediately. 007 complies and reveals a hidden bottle of chilled Bollinger and a rose. He then proceeds to seduce Caroline with ease. Later, in a meeting with M, the SIS Head notes that Bond's psychological evaluation was 'excellent'.

Novel biography

GoldenEye (novelisation)

In John Gardner's 1995 novelization of the film, Caroline is implied to have come from a background of privilege, that she had either never thought about, or never felt guilty about. In her professional life, Caroline was sent to Monaco to issue Agent 007 his five-year evaluation of his tradecraft skills. While driving on the Grand Corniche, a road in the South Alps, Bond entered a street race with a woman in a yellow Ferrari 355. Caroline demanded that he stop, and he reluctantly complied before opening one of his car's secret compartments that he informed her was usually used for a gun, and taking out a bottle of champagne. She later bid Bond farewell at the Nice airport, and had grown so fond of 007 that their parting brought tears to her eyes.
