Tagged Back!

I visited MarvelousThing's blog today and saw that she did the tag I tagged her with! Yay! But as I continued reading... "My cousin over at Merrie Melody tagged me. I am supposed to write 7 random things about me and then tag 7 other people. I did a tag like this before here and it was way hard to think of things.

This time I am going to tell you my top 7 favorite movie quotes of all time."

She then listed 7 great quotes and....then....TAGGED ME BACK! So, Here are my seven ... um.... well.... not quite quotes, but more like entire scenes! from The Princess Bride. I really, really love The Princess Bride. I have watched it over a bazillion times, and I love it more every time. If you have never watched this classic, I hope that my influence will be great enough to help you change your ways!

7. Interchange between Fezzik “the Giant”, Vizzini “the Mastermind”, and Dread Pirate Roberts:
Fezzik: What do I do?


Fezzik: Oh good, my way. Thank you, Vizzini.

[Fezzik pauses, thinking]

Which way's my way?

Vizzini: Pick up one of those rocks, get behind the boulder.
In a few minutes the man in black will come running
around the bend. The minute his head is in view, HIT

Fezzik: My way's not very sportsmanlike.

{After a great fight in which Fizzik is more sportsmanlike than Vizzini suggested, Dread Pirate Roberts knocks out Fezzik, and Fezzik drops unconscious to the ground}

Dread Pirate Roberts:

I do not envy you the headache you will have when you
awake. But, in the meantime, rest well, and dream of
large women.

6. AFter Buttercup realizes that Westley was the Dread Pirate Roberts:

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

Buttercup: Well, you were dead.

Westley: Death cannot stop True Love. All it can do is delay
it for a while.

5. Before entering the Fire Swamp:
Buttercup: We'll never survive.
Wesley: Nonsense. You're only saying that because no one ever has.

[Scene: Inside the Fire Swamp]

Westley: It's not that bad. [pause] Well, I'm not saying I'd
like to build a summer home here, but the trees are
actually quite lovely.

4. Okay, this is a long one, but probably my absolute favorite scene:

Miracle Max:Your first story was better. Where's that bellows
crammed? He probably owes you money, huh? Well, I'll
ask him.

Inigo: He's dead. He can't talk.

Miracle Max:Hoo hoo hoo! Look who knows so much, heh? Well, it
just so happens that your friend here is only mostly
dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead
and all dead. Please, open his mouth. Now, mostly
dead is slightly alive. Now, all dead...well, with
all dead, there's usually only one thing you can do.

Inigo: What's that?

Miracle Max:Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

[Max puts the bellows to Westley's mouth, and blows
air in.]

Hey! Hello in there! Hey! What's so important? What
you got here that's worth living for?

Westley: T-R-U-E L-O-V-E.

Inigo: "True Love", you heard him? You could not ask for a
more noble cause than that.

Miracle Max:Yeah, True Love is the greatest thing in the world,
except for a nice MLT---mutton, lettuce and tomato
sandwich, when the mutton is nice and lean, and the
tomato is ripe. < makes puckering sound > They're so
perky. I love that. But that's not what he said---he
distinctly said "To blave" and as we all know, to
blave means to bluff, heh? So you were probably
playing cards, and he cheated--

[A withered lady storms into the room]

Valerie: Liar! Liar! Liar!

Miracle Max:Get back, witch!

Valerie: I'm not a witch, I'm your wife, but after what you
just said, I'm not even sure I want to be that

Miracle Max:You never had it so good.

Valerie: True Love, he said "True Love", Max.

Miracle Max:Not another word, Valerie.

Valerie: He's afraid. Ever since Prince Humperdinck fired him,
his confidence is shattered.

Miracle Max:Why'd you say that name? You promised me that you
would never say that name!

Valerie: What, Humperdinck?

Miracle Max:Aaaigh!

Valerie: Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck!
Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck!
Humperdinck! Humperdinck!

Miracle Max:I'm not listening.

Valerie: You're life's expiring, and you don't have the
decency to say why you won't help.

Miracle Max:Nobody's hearing nothing!

Valerie: Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck!

Inigo: This is Buttercup's True Love. If you heal him, he
will stop Humperdinck's wedding.

Miracle Max:Enough! Wait, wait. I make him better, Humperdinck

Inigo: Humiliations galore.

Miracle Max:Ha ha ha! I'm gonna lick the dalmation! That is a
noble cause. Gimme the sixty-five. I'm on the job.

Valerie: Hoo-woo!

[Scene of Valerie coating the pill with chocolate]

Inigo: That a miracle pill?

Valerie: The chocolate coating makes it go down easier, but
you have to wait fifteen minutes for full potency,
and he shouldn't go in swimming after for at least--

Miracle Max:An hour--

Valerie: Yeah, an hour--

Miracle Max:A good hour.

Inigo: Thank you for everything.

Miracle Max:Okay.

Valerie: Bye-bye, boys!

Miracle Max:Have fun storming the castle!

Valerie: Think it'll work?

Miracle Max:It would take a miracle.

Miracle Max and Valerie:


4. Giving the Miracle Pill:

Fezzik: How long do we have to wait, before if we know the
miracle works?

Inigo: Your guess is as good as mine.

Westley: I'll beat you two apart! I'll take you both together!

Fezzik: I guess not very long.

Westley: Why won't my arms move?

Fezzik: You've been mostly dead all day.

Inigo: We had Miracle Max make a pill to bring you back.

Westley: Who are you? Are we enemies? Why am I on this wall?
Where's Buttercup?

Inigo: Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.
Buttercup is marry Humperdinck in little less than
half an hour, so all we have to do is get in, break
up the wedding, steal the princess, make our escape,
after I kill Count Rugen.

Westley: That doesn't leave much time for dilly-dallying.

Fezzik: You just wiggled your finger! That's wonderful!

Westley: I've always been a quick healer. What are our

Inigo: There is but one working castle gate. And it is
guarded by... sixty men.

Westley: And our assets?

Inigo: Your brains, Fezzik's strength, my steel.

Westley: That's it? Impossible. If I had a month to plan,
maybe I could come up with something, but this...<
shakes head >

Fezzik: You just shook your head! That doesn't make you

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

3. Who could forget this line:
Mawwage. Mawwage is what bwings us togethew today.

2. When Inigo finally finds Count Rugen, the "six-fingered man" he has been looking for:
Count Rugen:Good heavens. Are you still trying to win? You've
got an overdeveloped sense of vengeance. It's going
to get you into trouble someday.

Inigo: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my
father. Prepare to die.

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my
father. Prepare to die.

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my
father. Prepare to die.

Count Rugen:Stop saying that!

1. When it was all said and done....

Fezzik: Inigo! Inigo! Where are you? Oh, there you are.
Inigo, I saw the prince's stable, and there they
were, four white horses. And I thought, there are
four of us, if we ever find the lady. Hello, lady!
So I took them with me, in case we ever bumped into
each other. I guess we just did.

Inigo: Fezzik, you did something right.

Fezzik: Don't worry, I won't let it go to my head.

Inigo: You know, It's 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.

And we couldn't be finished without these lines:

Grandfather:Naw, it's kissing again, you don't want to hear

Grandson: Well, I don't mind so much.

Grandfather:Okay. "Since the invention of the kiss, there have
been five kisses that were rated the most
passionate, the most pure. This one left them all

[pause as Buttercup and Westley kiss]

The End." Now, I think you oughtta go to sleep.

Grandson: Okay.

Grandfather:All right. Okay. Okay. Okay. All right. So long.

Grandson: Grandpa? [pause] Maybe you could come over and read
it again to me tomorrow.

Grandfather:As you wish.

Thank heavens for this website that has the entire script of The Princess Bride already written, so all I had to do was cut & paste!

Well, what are you waiting for? Go watch the movie already! ;-)


  1. I Love the Princess Bride!!

    "You keep saying that word. I don't think it means what you think it means."


  2. No more rhyming, I mean it!

    Anybody want a peanut?

    I LOVE IT!
