Put this under “Man, I think I’m getting old” BUT what is arguably the most quotable movie of all time, The Princess Bride is celebrating its 25th Anniversary!
I have yet to meet the person who doesn’t love this movie. What has always stood out to me though is everytime I get into a conversation about it, each person has their own favorite quote. Some movies have that “One Quote” where the second you mention the title, it’s the next line said. Not The Princess Bride. This movie has probably hundreds of quotable lines of dialogue, all of them sublime.
“My name is Inigo Montoya…”
“Have fun storming the castle.”
“Rodents of unusual size? I don’t think they exist.”
“When I was your age, television was called books.”
“Death can not stop true love. It can only delay it for awhile.”
“As you wish.”
Sigh… I could go on and on, but I think I’ll leave it there.
My love for this movie has few contenders. It’s one of those movies where it might not be my go-to, but I am always in the mood to see it.
How about you? What’s your favorite quote?
