Top 10 ‘Princess Bride’ Movie Quotes

Happy Top 10 Tuesday, world! That’s right—this week, instead of the usual Top 5, we’re giving you a special bonus, because we’re celebrating our favorite quotes from The Princess Bride, and I just couldn’t narrow it down to five because, well, it is the greatest movie ever made, after all. So, fix yourself a nice MLT and prepare to die…of excitement. Because this is my favorite movie of all time, and I’ve picked the best of the best lines from it. We’ll start with the standards…

1. “As you wish.” —Westley

2. “Inconceivable!” —Vizzini

3. “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” —Inigo Montoya

4. “Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.” —Westley

5. “Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work. But I’ve got my country’s 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder, and Guilder to frame for it. I’m swamped.”
“Get some rest. If you haven’t got your health, you haven’t got anything.”
—Prince Humperdinck & Count Rugen

6. “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 well-known is this: Never go in against a Sicilian when DEATH is on the line!” —Vizzini

7. “Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” —Westley

8. “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. They’re so perky, I love that.” —Miracle Max

9. “Mawwiage. Mawwiage is what bwings us together today.” —The Impressive Clergyman

10. “Have fun storming the castle!” —Miracle Max

Well, after all that, I’m overcome with the sudden urge to go rewatch this movie for the 1,633,124th time. Did I get your favorite quote? Since the entire film is basically the greatest movie quote of all time, I’m sure I missed a few people’s favorites. (“Anybody want a peanut?” gets an honorable mention.) Leave yours in the comments, and tweet us @PopCultureNexus so we can gush about our tremendous love for this movie. And happy Top Five Ten Tuesday!
