Quote of the Day: The Princess Bride

Inigo Montoya: HELLO! MY NAME IS INIGO MONTOYA! YOU KILLED MY FATHER! PREPARE TO DIE!

[Inigo corners Count Rugen, knocks his sword aside, and slashes his cheek, giving him a scar just like Inigo’s]

Inigo Montoya: Offer me money.

Count Rugen: Yes!

Inigo Montoya: Power, too, promise me that.

[He slashes his other cheek]

Count Rugen: All that I have and more. Please…

Inigo Montoya: Offer me anything I ask for.

Count Rugen: Anything you want…

[Rugen knocks Inigo’s sword aside and lunges. But Inigo traps his arm and aims his sword at Rugen’s stomach]

Inigo Montoya: I want my father back, you son of a bitch!

Happy 72nd birthday to director, Rob Reiner.

BTW, if you watch this movie, and this part doesn’t make you want to stand up and cheer, you are dead inside.

Quote of the Day: The Princess Bride

Buttercup: We’ll never survive.

Westley: Nonsense. You’re only saying that because no one ever has.

Inconceivable!!! The Princess Bride was released in theaters on this day, 31 years ago (September 25, 1987)

Quote of the Day: The Princess Bride

Inigo Montoya: Is very strange. I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it’s over, I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life.
Westley: Have you ever considered piracy? You’d make a wonderful Dread Pirate Roberts.

Happy 64th Birthday to Mandy Patinkin!!!
