Quotes From The Princess Bride

This is a very funny movie!


Man in Black: [intrigued] You've done nothing but study sword-play? 
Inigo Montoya: More pursue than study lately. You see, I cannot find him... it's been twenty years now and I'm starting to lose confidence. I just work for Vizzini to pay the bills. There's not a lot of money in revenge. 
[after a moments silence, the Man in black stands up and prepares to battle
Man in Black: Well I certainly hope you find him someday. 
Inigo Montoya: You are ready then? 
Man in Black: Whether I am or not, you've been more than fair. 
Inigo Montoya: [drawing his sword] You seem a decent fellow... I hate to kill you. 
Man in Black: You seem a decent fellow... I hate to die. 
Inigo Montoya: [confidently] Begin. 


Inigo Montoya: I do not mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand? 
Man in Black: Do you always begin conversations this way? 


[after Inigo pulls the Man in Black to the top
Man in Black: Thank you. 
[He begins to draw his sword, but Inigo motions him to stop
Inigo Montoya: We'll wait until you are ready. 
Man in Black: [sheathes sword] Again, thank you.


Vizzini: I can't compete with you physically, and you're no match for my brains. 
Man in Black: You're that smart? 
Vizzini: Let me put it this way. Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates? 
Man in Black: Yes. 
Vizzini: Morons. 


[after Westley rescues her from the lightning quicksand
Buttercup: We'll never succeed. We may as well die here. 
Westley: No, no. We have already succeeded. I mean, what are the three terrors of the Fire Swamp? One, the flame spurt - no problem. There's a popping sound preceding each; we can avoid that. Two, the lightning sand, which you were clever enough to discover what that looks like, so in the future we can avoid that too. 
Buttercup: Westley, what about the R.O.U.S.'s? 
Westley: Rodents Of Unusual Size? I don't think they exist. 
[Immediately, an R.O.U.S. attacks him


The King: [after a tender kiss from Buttercup] What was that for? 
Buttercup: Because you've always been so kind to me, and I'll never see you again, because I'm killing myself as soon as we reach the Bridal Suite. 
The King: Won't that be nice? 
The King: She kissed me! Ha!
