“As You Wish”

I am currently reading Cary Elwes’ memoirs from the making of The Princess Bride, “As You Wish”. Elwes plays Westley in this 1987 treasure which is based on William Goldman’s book, “The Princess Bride” (which I also recommend). I really love this movie, and reading all of the behind the scenes details got me thinking about my favorite lines from the film. While there are many memorable quotes from the movie, these are just some my favorites:

“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You Killed My father. Prepare to die.” –Inigo

“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” –Man in Black

“You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.” -Inigo
”You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.” –Man in Black

“Inconceivable!” –Vizzini
“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” –Inigo

“We’ll never survive.” –Buttercup
“Nonsense. You only say that because no one ever has.” –Westley

“There’s a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours.” –Westley

“Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.”-Westley
“Wait till I get going…”-Vizzini

“You are trying to kidnap what I have rightfully stolen.” – Vizzini

“As you Wish.” –Westley
