Princess Bride--Favorite Lines!

I love doing this! Just thinking of these lines makes me smile. You guys already listed some of my all-time faves, but here, in the order they show up in the movie, are the rest of my favs:

Inigo (to the man in black): "You seem like a decent fellow, I hate to kill you."
Man in Black/Westley: "You seem like a decent fellow, I hate to die."

Westley (to Fessik, whom he's just knocked out): Rest well, and dream of large women.

: I told you I would always come for you. Why didn't you wait for me?
: Well... you were dead.

Westley (to Buttercup when they enter the fire swamp):
"It's not that bad." Buttercup gives him an "HUH?" look. "I'm not saying I'd like to build a summer home here, but the trees are actually quite lovely."

Miracle Max: "Sonny, true love is the greatest thing in the world. Except for a nice MLT: a mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They're so perky, I love that."
(I like this one so much because many years ago when I worked at Multnomah publishers, the leadership team was called...wait for it...the MLT. So these lines from Max always made me giggle.)

Inigo: "Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up."

Westley: My brains, his steel, and your strength against sixty men, and you think a little head jiggle is supposed to make me happy? Hmmm?

Clergyman: Mawwidge. Mawwidge is whut bwings us togevah todaay. Mawwidge, dat bwessed awangement, that dweem wifin a dweem... And wuv, twoo wuv, will fowoh you fowevah... So tweasha your wuv...

Thanks, everyone for playing.

Peace, Karen

Now that I am more focussed and have read your first post properly, I want to add this one from The PB by Westley - "Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while."

Love it - funny, yet full of meaning!

I love the Princess Bride! Thanks for sharing these quotes. :)

LOL! My little sister used to be able to imitate the priest perfectly until she got her tonsils removed. She and my brother had the entire scene memorized and would often have us in stitches!

Grandson: Grandpa? Maybe you can come over tomorrow and read it again.

Grandpa: As you wish.

Never saw this film. But if we're talking great movie lines, there were more quotable lines in the first POTC Curse of the Black Pearl than in any movie I've ever seen. My family used to communicate in Captain Jack Sparrow dialogue around the house.

Except one time when I thought it was my husband's new cell phone number on the Caller ID and answered with "What say you?" There was dead silence, then sputtering. It was the mechanic. He was a good sport when I explained why I answered it that way and told me he did the same thing with his daughter. Whew!

LOL, Nicole! Amazing, isn't it, how movies become such a part of our lives? I'm at the ACFW conference in Denver, and one of the topics we'll be discussing in the workshop I'm co-leading is tribes, from the book by Seth Godin. I think movie lovers are a great tribe!
