  • Quotes
    • Buttercup
      • Buttercup: You can't hurt me. Westley and I are joined by the bonds of love. And you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords.
    • Buttercup & Westley
      • 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.
      • Buttercup: We'll never survive!
        Westley: Nonsense! You're only saying that because no one ever has.
    • Count Rugen
      • Count Rugen: As you know, the concept of the suction pump is centuries old. And really, that's all this is, except that instead of sucking water, I'm sucking life. I've just sucked one year of your life away. I might one day go as high as five, but I really don't know what that would do to you, so let's just start with what we have. What did this do to you? Tell me. And remember, this is for posterity, so. be honest. How do you feel?
    • Fezzik & Vizzini
      • Fezzik: You never said anything about killing anyone!
        Vizzini: I've hired you to help me start a war! It's an prestigious line of work, with a long and glorious tradition.
        Fezzik: I just don't think it's right, killing an innocent girl.
        Vizzini: Am I going MAD, or did the word 'think' escape your lips? You were not hired for your brains, you hippopotamic land mass!
    • The Grandson & The Grandfather
      • The Grandson: A book?
        The Grandfather: That's right. When I was your age, television was called books! And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today I'm gonna read it to you.
        The Grandson: Has it got any sports in it?
        The Grandfather: Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles.
        The Grandson: Doesn't sound too bad. I'll try to stay awake.
        The Grandfather: Oh, well, thank you very much, very nice of you. Your vote of confidence is overwhelming.
    • Inigo Montoya
      • Inigo Montoya: Do you hear that Fezzik? That is the sound of ultimate suffering. My heart made that sound when the six-fingered man killed my father. The Man in Black makes it now.
      • Inigo Montoya: He's right on top of us. I wonder if he is using the same wind we are using.
      • Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
      • 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.
    • Inigo Montoya & Vizzini
      • Inigo Montoya: You are sure nobody's follow' us?
        Vizzini: As I told you, it would be absolutely, totally, and in all other ways inconceivable! No one in Guilder knows what we've done, and no one in Florin could have gotten here so fast. Out of curiosity, why do you ask?
        Inigo Montoya: No reason. It's only. I just happened to look behind us and something is there.
        Vizzini: What? Probably some local fisherman, out for a pleasure cruise, at night. in, eel-infested waters.
    • Inigo Montoya & Westley
      • Inigo Montoya: I do not mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand?
        Westley: Do you always begin conversations this way?
      • Inigo Montoya: I donna suppose you could speed things up?
        Westley: If you're in such a hurry, you could lower a rope or a tree branch or find something useful to do.
        Inigo Montoya: I could do that. I have some rope up here, but I do not think you would accept my help, since I am only only waiting around to kill you.
        Westley: That does put a damper on our relationship.
      • Inigo Montoya: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.
        Westley: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.
    • The King & Buttercup
      • The King: What was that for?
        Buttercup: Because you have always been so kind to me, and I won't be seeing you again since I'm killing myself once we reach the honeymoon suite.
        The King: Won't that be nice. She kissed me!
    • Miracle Max
      • Miracle Max: True love is the greatest thing in the world-except for a nice MLT - mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe.
      • Miracle Max: You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles.
    • Miracle Max & Valerie
      • Miracle Max: Get back, witch!
        Valerie: I'm not a witch, I'm your wife! And after what you just said, I'm not even sure I want to be that any more!
      • Miracle Max: Have fun stormin' the castle!
        Valerie: Think it'll work?
        Miracle Max: It would take a miracle.
    • Prince Humperdinck & Westley
      • Prince Humperdinck: Surrender!
        Westley: You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept.
    • Vizzini
      • Vizzini: Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me!
      • Vizzini: You only think I guessed wrong - that's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha-ha, you fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is, "Never get involved in a land war in Asia", but only slightly less famous is this: "Never go in against a Sicilian, when death is on the line!"
    • Vizzini & Buttercup
      • Vizzini: A word, my lady. We are but poor, lost circus performers. Is there a village nearby?
        Buttercup: There is nothing nearby. Not for miles.
        Vizzini: Then there will be no one to hear you scream!
      • Vizzini: A word, my lady. We are but poor, lost circus performers. Is there a village nearby?
        Buttercup: There is nothing nearby. Not for miles.
        Vizzini: Then there will be no one to hear you scream!
    • Vizzini & Inigo Montoya
      • Vizzini: He didn't fall? Inconceivable!
        Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
    • Westley
      • Westley: We are men of action, lies do not become us.
      • Westley: There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours.
      • Westley: Life is pain, Highness! Anyone who says differently is selling something.
    • Westley & Buttercup
      • Westley: Hear this now: I will always come for you.
        Buttercup: But how can you be sure?
        Westley: This is true love. You think this happens every day?
      • 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.
      • Westley: I told you I would always come for you. Why didn't you wait for me?
        Buttercup: But you died.
        Westley: Even death cannot stop true love; All it can do is delay it for a little while.
    • Westley, Inigo Montoya & Fezzik
      • Westley: Who are you? Are we enemies? Why am I on this wall? Where is Buttercup?
        Inigo Montoya: Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Buttercup is marry' Humperdinck in a 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 liabilities?
        Inigo Montoya: There is but one working castle gate, and. and it is guarded by 60 men.
        Westley: And our assets?
        Inigo Montoya: Your brains, Fezzik's strength, my steel.
      • Westley: I mean, if we only had a wheelbarrow, that would be something.
        Inigo Montoya: Where did we put that wheelbarrow the albino had?
        Fezzik: Over the albino, I think.
        Westley: Well, why didn't you list that among our assets in the first place?
    • Westley, Yellin & Inigo Montoya
      • Westley: Give us the gate key.
        Yellin: I have no gate key.
        Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, tear his arms off.
