Princess Bride Meme

When you see this, post in your own journal with your favorite quote from The Princess Bride. Preferably not “As you wish” or the Inigo Montoya speech.

Life IS pain, princess.  Anyone who says differently is selling something. 

Not the funniest line in the movie, but one of the truest. And the best comedy comes from people who know pain.

"And in being forced to class herself among the fortunate she did not cease to wonder at the persistence of the unforeseen, when the one to whom such unbroken tranquility had been accorded in the adult stage was she whose youth had seemed to teach that happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain."
Thomas Hardy, The Mayor of Casterbridge

Miracle Max: "As it turns out, your friend is only mostly dead, not all dead. There's a pretty big difference between mostly dead and all dead."
Inigo: "What's the difference?"
Miracle Max: "When he's mostly dead, he's still partly alive."
Inigo: "What about when he's all dead."
Miracle Max: "Well, when he's all dead, there's only one thing left to do."
Inigo: "What's that?"
Miracle Max: "Go through his pockets for loose change."

Gatekeeper: "What gate key?"
Inigo: "Fezzik, jog his memory for him."
Gatekeeper: "Oh, you mean this gate key."

IMDB has Inigo's line as

Westley: Give us the gate key.
Yellin: I have no gate key.
Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, tear his arms off.
Yellin: Oh, you mean *this* gate key.

I think the 'Jog his memory' is when Fezzik tapped the albino on the head, so he would show them how to get into the Zoo of Death.

Hmm, you could be right.

Man, I think more than half the dialog wound up on the IMDb quote page. Anyway:

Miracle Max: You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles.
Inigo Montoya: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.
Man in Black: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.
Vizzini: No more rhymes now, I mean it.
Fezzik: Anybody want a peanut?

    I'm just worn out with sitting in the coldest part of the building (any building), waiting for people to come in for their picture, and finding out they came by two hours after the posted close.

    You would have a glorious time. Lord Verisopht scandalizing Emily Fezziwig in the parlour of Tavistock House, with Mr. Dickens' butler looking on with vast disapproval.…
