Norwegian lesson of the day: kjærringa mot strømmen, literally “the woman against the stream”, someone who is particularly stubborn, contrary. From the folk tale collected by Asbjørnsen & Moe about the woman who was so contrary about everything that when she eventually drowned in the river she was found upstream. (Note: You should not actually use “kjærringa” as a synonym for woman. It could get you into trouble.)

Voice from the television: Madonna – Die Another Day (a reasonably good song but hopelessly inadequate as a Bond-theme. A Bond song should be instantly recognisable as a Bond-song)
