Aaaaas Youuuu Wiiiiish

For the ninety six percent of you who immediately got the title reference, yes. Today I'm grateful for Princess Bride, one of the best movies of all time. The jokes never get old, the romance never gets stale, and Wesley's mask is always awesome.

So to celebrate all those times you've laughed your head off at this cult classic, here are some quotes. You get a silver star for each one correctly identified, and a gold star for each quote you post in return. And hopefully you get a smile remembering all the classic moments.

1. "Anybody want a peanut?"

2.  "Humperdink, Humperdink, Humperdink, Humperdink!"

3. "Iocane. I'd bet my life on it."

4. "You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

5. "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. "Farm boy, fetch me that pitcher?"

7. "Hold it, hold it. What is this? Are you trying to trick me? Where's the sports? Is this a kissing book?"

8. "Goodnight, Wesley. Sleep well. I should most like to kill you in the morning."

9. "I knew it. I knew you were bluffing. I knew he was...bluffing."

10."Mawage. Mawage is what bwings us togevor today."

11."Drop. Your. Sword."

12."Wesley, what about the R.O.U.S.'s?"

13."My way is not very sportsmanlike."

14."Boo. Boo! BOO! "

15."The chocolate coating helps it go down easier."

If you totally don't get it, you have got to watch the movie.  If you do, shout out! Hit me with some references. And never go up against a Sicilian when death is on the line! (Maniacal laughter--)


  1. Gold star for quoting Buttercup!

  2. Don't forget the classic: "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

    "This is true love - you think this happens every day?"

    "Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while."

    "You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles."

    "We are men of action, lies do not become us."

    "You've been mostly-dead all day."

    And the other classic: "Have fun stormin' da castle."

    Finally: "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 behind. The End."

    Thanks for the memories! Best movie ever!!!


  3. Awesome, Trey! A whole handful of gold stars!

  4. I knew I loved you for a reason, girl... :-)

  5. If only we all had a farmboy to flirt with and fetch our pitchers...I'd be making lemonade ALL THE TIME !
