“My name is Inigo Montoya; you killed my father; prepare to die.”

Posted by Lissa on May 27, 2010

All hail the Princess Bride!

P.S. Mike had a professor at Ye Olde Business School who once gave the following as a bonus question on a test:

“What is the most famous of the classic blunders?”

Shamefully, I got it wrong; I guessed it was going in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.  (Mike made the same incorrect guess and felt a little better that I did too.)  That is, of course, only slightly less well-known than the most famous one.  Bad Lissa!

    That movie has got to be in the record books for the most memorable one-liners. Loved Mandy Patinkin (spelling?) as Montoya. Quit watching Criminal Minds when he left. The doorknob they replaced him with couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag.

    “Fesic, are there rocks ahead?”
    “If there are, we’ll all be dead.”
    “No more rhymes and I mean it!”
    “Anyone want a peanut?”
